The original Dawn of the Dead owns any non-Romero, and is probably his most poignant work. I know there are some other older, and newer Z-films that people like more, but this movie made me consider the zombie as a Jungian archetype. Not many filmmakers can have that effect, and he did it with a monster movie. Awesome.
I will say that I loved the concept of "28 Days Later," even though the zombies weren't really zombies. I'd always joked about zombie preparedness, and that movie blew away any plan I'd ever come up with. Bend over and kiss my ass goodbye is all I could think to do, faced with that.
Give me a dollar.
