The Dead Series


#1

I’m starting this thread about the thoughts on the dead series and ripoffs of the dead series like zombie(which is really good movie), burial ground, zombie holocaust, hell of the living dead which actually used alot of songs from dawn in the movi… and many more any thoughts on the series and the ripoffs i love the series and i am a huge fan of romero but i also love the rip offs and love fulci too.

I thought Zombi 2 was at least better than Night of the Living Dead. It lacks the social-aspects but pure as a zombi-flick it’s just very, very good.


#3

yea its great i dont know about being better than night but it was really good. Any one ever seen the shit fest burial ground i enjoy it but it is a really bad movie.


#4

Dawn of the Dead is the best horror movie ever made.

I agree.


#6

did anyone ever see zombie holocaust on the dvd features the direct says he never watched the film once and he also just keeps comparing it to romero and fulci films the entire featurette.


#7

anyone love return of the living dead i heard something about george romero wrote the story for it or something any info on that?


#8

Return is my fav zombie movie, but I don’t think ROmero had anything to do with it beyond it being a sequel to Night… you might be thinking of John Russo…


#9

yea ur rite i was thinkin of russo one of my favorites too i have watched it dozens of times its so great my favorite scene is where they gotta get rid of the yellow zombie and then they bring it over to the guy at the morgue he is my favorite character in the film.

Romero. Fulci is good but romero started the shit.

George Andrew Romero is the master. Night Of Te Living Dead has become so iconic in the horror lexicon, many films have emulated the same type of rules created for zombies, it also spawned sub-genres like 28 Days or Planet Terror. But it’s sad to see Romero not getting the much deserved attention for creating the foundation for such a great genre that is catching up with audiences. I hope Diary Of The Dead will change that. He’s back and better than ever. Fulci on the other pushes the envelope a bit too much with intense scenes of gore, Romero uses humor to suspend a lot of the angst when you watch people being eaten alive, but certainly Romero is the best. I like Fulci too, but it’s a completely different style.

[/quote]That kid dosen’t appear in Zombi 2, but that severed hand certainly does. I haven’t seen Burial Ground either.
