|1.||Dawn of the Dead|
Released in 1978, Dawn of the Dead is the sequel to the 1968 cult classic "Night of the Living Dead", and was written and directed once again by horror filmmaker George A. Romero, who has been hailed as the father of modern zombie cinema.more...
The story is set just a few weeks ahead of the events of the first film. The unknown force that is raising the recently deceased is still persisting. As more people are being killed and eaten by the walking corpses - only to become flesh-eating zombies themselves - the world has started to fall into a state of disarray. The end is on the horizon.
Four people - a traffic helicopter pilot, his girlfriend from the WGON news studio, and two national guardsman - take off from their responsibilities in the traffic helicopter and take refuge inside a shopping mall that is crowded with the living dead. Through a series of spine-chilling sweeps throughout the shopping mall, as they gather supplies and kill the zombies, the four manage to secure the mall as their own safe haven. A monument to decadent consumerism and a barricaded fortress all in one...
But as time passes, ...
The Final Mission is the day the world or the contry is taken over by a force stronger than ourselves and its every man for himself. The Apocolypse. The day the world ends is the most likely senerio. The world will go to shit and there will be looting, rapeing, murders, and pure anarchy all over the globe. With any luck this will be the rapture as told in the book of revalations in the Holy Bible where all the good holesome people wil dissapear and be whisked off to heaven while the sinners will be left to fend for themselves in a world of pain and suffering. There will likely be deamons and a whole slew of undead zombies wandering the earth at this time, something like the on the movie "Dawn of the Dead". If you are like me, you will probably be stuck here to fight off these hellish creatures with what little firepower you have stockpiled (ie. Resident Evil". Our only hope is to kill everything that moves and try to get someplace where we can live as long as possible. There have been quite a few movies and games about this topic and this author can oly speculate about their relivance to our lives.more...

Second in the great Romero Dead Trilogy, after Night Of The Living Dead and before Day Of The Dead. Considered by many to be the best of the three, and indeed the best Zombie movie ever made.
Features an inept pilot who can;t swing a hammer for crap, a pregnant chick, a black dude who REALLY likes bread, a badass white dude who screams all the time, a scientist with an eyepatch, and a great many memorable zombies (Hare Krishna Zombie, Fat Disgusting Zombie, Zombies with afros, and Gun-Carryin' Zombie)
Was recently remade into a more 28 Days Later-esque movie, with action scenes that ALL ripped off an Australian Zombie movie zimply called "Undead." Although the remake did have several good moments, including a zombie baby, and some cameos from the origional actors.
Dawn Of The Dead was pretty damned awesome.

Is a really great zombie movie from 1979. It was released as the sequel to Night of the Living Dead. It's got the best gore in it and the best zombies. DO NOT SEE THE REMAKE!!! It was terrible and should be destroyed immediately. If you want to see Dawn of the Dead, make sure its the old one, not the bullshit one.
Other good zombie movies:
Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead, the Evil Dead series, Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead, Zombie, Dead/Alive, The Beyond

The, usally well-kept and grassy, are outside public schools, libaries, supermarkets and take-away joints unwillingly populated by dead-beat, thick-as-shit students kicking cans and smoking during weekends. Occurs mostly in dull, sparsely populated towns with no cinemas.
Reference to the cult-zombie movie Dawn of the dead.
Gimmie and his mates have made their own lawn of the dead outside Supa-value, next to the bins. I hear Chanele offered him a blowie if he bought her a packet of fags. Bloody 'scalp turned her down.

Liek the best spoof ever made, it is about a zombie out break and this dude just sorta doesnt notice it and it just gets really stupid.
Quotes from shaun of the deadmore...
"He's not my Dad, he's my stepdad!"
"Ed: What's the plan then?
Cuts to dream sequence
Shaun: We take Pete's car, we drive over to mum's, we go in, take care of Phillip - "I'm so sorry Phillip". - then we grab mum, we go over to Liz's place, hole up, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
Ed: Why have we got to go to Liz's?
Shaun: Because we do.
Ed: But she dumped you!
Shaun: I have to know if she's all right!
Shaun: Because I love her!
Ed: All right... gayyy... I'm not staying there, though.
Shaun: Why not?
Ed: If we hole up, I wanna be somewhere familiar, I wanna know where the exits are, and I wanna be allowed to smoke.
cuts to dream sequence again
Shaun: We take Pete's car, go around mum's, go in, deal with Phillip - "Sorry Phillip!" - grab mum, go to Liz's, pick her up, bring her back here, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over.
