George A. Romero's zombie movies

Personal DVD collection (plus book)

Night Of The Living Dead (1968)

The night zombie movies as we know them today were born. Inspired by "The Last Man On Earth" (1964), "The Killer Shrews" (1959), and others, "Night of the Living Dead" is the mother of all modern zombie films. With nightmarish ghouls, inventive camera work, and a storyline that'll crawl under your skin, it's still and will probably always be among the top three of the genre.

Dawn Of The Dead (1978)

Day Of The Dead (1985)

The most spectacular of Romero's early zombie films, in "Day of the Dead" all hell breaks loose. Humankind on the brink of extinction, this might be

Night Of The Living Dead (remake 1990, written by G. A. Romero)

An updated remake of the first "Night of the Living Dead", directed by Tom Savini, the guy that created the gory special effects for "Dawn of the Dead". Again, what sets the film apart from your average zombie flick is the clever writing by Romero.

Land Of The Dead (2005)

Humankind has survived "Day of the Dead" and learned to live with the threat.

Diary Of The Dead (2007)

Yet another look at how the outbreak began - only about 40 years later. A highly interesting interpretation of the original idea, with strong references to social media and millenial culture, as always Romero's writing puts it miles above many other low- or hi-budget zombie films.

Survival Of The Dead (2009)

Twilight of the Dead (unknown, written by G. A. Romero)

Possible, unconfirmed. Script by G. A. Romero for a final zombie movie, might get produced.
