Let me pick your braaaaaaiins...

So I've been adding a bunch of Zombie themed movies to our Netflix queue. I've added:
Shaun of the Dead
Night of the Living Dead
Day of the Dead
The Return of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead (the original from 1978)
Resident Evil
Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Land of the Dead (releases on DVD on October 18th!!)

What other zombie flicks should be put into our list for our upcoming Halloween and Zombie themed movie nights?

I've not seen it yet (we can never rent it because Malene's a puss with scary movies), but I've heard the 28 Days Later is amazing.

Oh, and make sure you're renting the original Night of the Living Dead and not the 80's remake that completely butchers the ending. If you have a DVD burner on your computer, you can download that, though, as it's in public domain. Make sure you get the real movie and not a fan re-edit.

I like the "remake" of Dawn of the Dead. Especially if you pretend no one called it a remake. If it had a different title, it would be brilliant. But it is scaaaaaaary.

Heh. I've seen both of those movies, actually. (28 Days Later and the "remake" of Dawn of the Dead).
Of the other movies listed, I've already seen the original Night of the Living Dead as well, but it's so good that I don't mind seeing it again.

I actually thought the remake of Night of the Living Dead was pretty good, though I agree the original is better. (I refused to see the remake of Dawn of the Dead.) Also, if you don't have time for all those you listed, I'd recommend dropping Day of the Dead (the only weak entry in the Romero series) and Return of the Living Dead (a 'parody' which I didn't find to be funny).

I can't think of any to add besides 28 Days Later. The only other I could think of is a low budget flick called Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, but aside from the quality title, it's not very good.
