  • Which movies to choose?

    You lot have seen zombie movies, right? Of course you have. Well, a friend of mine sells them, among other things, and as such I have access to to getting them at a wholesome price. Since I haven't even heard of half of these, let alone watched them, I figured I'd ask for some advice. The only ones I can remember seeing are Flight of the Living Dead and the first .REC.

    P.S - I wouldn't advise looking in the Erotic Horror section. There is only fear there. And boobs, bust mostly fear.

    Get Re-Animator, it's a classic.

    Edit: saw Horde there as well, pretty good movie too. It's French if that makes any difference to you.

      I enjoyed Rec, if you can put up with Spanish subtitles. Dead Set was a really good series, quite realistic. Has a zombie outbreak during a finale of Big Brother, even has zombie Davina McCall in it. Really liked it, I actually have that on DVD. That's probably all I'd get off there. I just liked how it has all those cronies who watch Big Brother (I find it boring as shit) and a zombie manages to get into the crowd that stand cheering/screaming outside at the finale. Has all the BBC people as well. Then an outbreak occurs, but no one can tell the screams of terrified people over the losers cheering for Big Brother. Then the contestants in the house finally realise when a zombie gets into the house that there's an outbreak, and it goes from there really.

      Zombie porn? Weird. Don't get what's erotic about rotting people humping eachother. Unless it's those tacky ones where it's just women with some fake blood on them with tits hanging out. A la RE: Apocalypse.

        You can''t say that DM and then not expect me to look... (Big tits zombies )

        I liked Diary of the dead, but I think the general reception wasn't that great, so mileage may vary

          Dead Set is well worth checking out. Diary Of The Dead is ok and Versus is great if you don't mind things extremely OTT.

            I screamed a little when clicking the link due to there being a Jason advertisement at the top for a mask or something...I didn't read too close into it since he scarred me deeply as a child!

            Anyway, I thought Dead Snow was pretty good. The general premise of the movie sounds stupid, but they actually did a nice job with that. A bit predictable at times, but still a good foreign, horror flick.

            Some of those other ones I am interested in checking out. I will probably be ordering six copies of Porn of the Dead; I bet that is a masterpiece!

              Rec was awesome, and Rec 2 was as well from what I got to see. This makes me wonder if they'll make a Quarantine 2

              Also, that "Versus" movie looks pretty cool, I'll have to look into that.

                They already made Quarantine 2. It was released this year with the title Quarantine 2: Terminal.

                  Wow, they went that route huh? Which means no Jennifer Carpenter
                  At least they're trying do something different with the sequel rather than make a carbon copy of rec2.
                  Thanks for letting me know regardless.

                    Subtitles are fine. I watch so much subtitled stuff that I don't even notice them now. And yes, I recall Dead Set being pretty cool. I only saw chunks of it. If I remember right the ending pretty much jumps the shark, with someone doing something unbelievably stupid to let the zombies in which made me somewhat annoyed.

                    Not just zombies! Although as Gene mentions there are such titles as Porn of the Dead and Big Titted Zombies (Which is actually so funny at one point I passed out laughing...) but also a variety of other horror films, full of porn.

                    No, I don't really get it either. Big Titted Zombies had nudity and a running joke of the main character getting drunk, waking up next to someone (an Albino Midget being a highlight) and stealing something of theirs. The others? No idea. Too frightened to look.

                    I didn't like Diary of the Dead (I keep forgetting I've seen this stuff) mostly because of the main character. I wanted him to die quite fast for refusing to put the camera down and help your friends, dumbass.

                    I'll check out Versus. I saw part of it years ago and it was fairly entertaining.

                      You know why Romero has him doing that right?

                        Honestly, no. I assume it's his whole 'everything must be documented' thing, but given he nearly watches several people get eaten...seems a thin excuse.

                          I'd assume it's political or some kind of satire, like the rest of his stuff is supposed to be. Probably something about the media.

                            I'm suprised that I haven't heard any of these films with the exception of REC and Quarantine, and I can myself a movie buff.

                              Yeah its not a bad collection.. Versus is decent for a low budget flick, though it does run on rather long at 2 hours or so. zombi 2, 3, etc zombie holocaust are classics.. I see Stripperland is missing though (parody of zombieland), that was hilariously bad..
