As the Halloween season rolls around, we seem to inundated by zombie movies on TV and in the theatre. Will you be checking out theatre zombies in "Dead (Yellow?) Snow", "Diary of the Deadheads", "Zombieland in Disneyworld" or "From Dusk to Shaun (Beam me down Scotty)"?
I haven't seen any of the movies in the first paragraph, but Zombieland looks like it might be good for a few chuckles.
Of the "dead" movies on TV, Shaun of the Dead definitely stands out as the horror?/comedy film of the decade.
My choice, however, for the best zombie movie of all time is "Return of the Living Dead". The trailer is featured at the top of this entry. Not only is there a great deal of humor in this film, but the zombies are more interesting than other dead things in horror flicks. "Send more cops" was one zombie memorable line.
Please note, that not only the recent dead resurrect, but the long dead as well. They have different eating habits from regular zombies and they have a good reason for attacking humans.
The movie was made in the 1980s and has a great ending. Three and half stars.
