# 15 - Pontypool (2009) A take on War of the Worlds with a verbal virus twist...
My take: I think the all time worst zombie movie I saw in recent years was one where it was part game show and wrestling and zombies... I don't remember the name as it was so bad I turned it off after 10 minutes.
Of note: One I'm sure I've seen being a Bela Lugosi and old movie fan:
White Zombie (1932) - with Bela Lugosi
# 4 - Dawn of the Dead (1978) - zombies in the mall.
My take: This was the first zombie movie I saw in color which made the gore more horrific. This and "The Pit and the Pendulum" are two movies I've never forgotten.
#7 - Zombieland (2009) - a favorite. Thought it was goofy and fun.
#1 - Night of the Living Dead (1968)
My take: This classic is considered to have started it all, and remains a favorite. There is something about the starkness of black-and-white that makes it more horrifying, yet touching, without grossing you out.
