Possibly I missed seeing the original on the list since it was out of order. I have rectified both that, and refocused the voting.

JB: Of course one can't blame Romero for uninspired copies. One can, however, blame him for an uninspired original. I don't hate Dawn, for instance--of all of them, it's the only one with something slightly interesting going on--but it's still a one-note idea.

C. J. Vasta says:
I think two underrated Universal films are Son of Dracula and Son of Frankenstein. Son of Dracula adds a Southern Gothic flavor to the typical vampire story and throws in film noir style plot twists. Some people fault Chaney's more low-key vampire but I think that's actually part of the movie's design as this a slightly different plot than usual. Son of Frankenstein has some complex characterization and good performances by Basil Rathbone and Lionel Atwill. I think Atwill's one-armed constable is one of the best characters to appear in a Universal movie.

As to Burton, I would say his best horror work is Beetlejuice. Betelguece certainly fits the profile of a Polergeist. There's somthing genuinely Peevish about him.

Q says:
JB,

Were they eating flesh, or mainly just concerned with biting the living to turn them into the undead?

I can't remember.

I know in the Omega Man, they wanted to convert them to whatever-the-heck they were...the black hood cult? Ponder that one. Ha. And in Will Smith's I am Legend, the zombies ate people, but I can't figure out how some people were turned to zombies by being bitten, and other totally devoured? Maybe I am forgetting a detail. Might as well rewatch all three!

I haven't seen enough of these obscure titles to vote one way or the other...and I'm too busy catching up on Hitch at the moment to try. I'm kinda ambivalent on Carnival of Souls.

Is this Nosferatu the silent film? I know there were two black and white versions, yes?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2012 3:42:16 PM PDT
William,

Thanks for downvoting 'Night' instead, anyway. I was so tired last night I didn't even see that we included it on this list through my blurry eyes. Maybe you had the same problem when you went after 'Dawn'. Seeing how I'm the one who made up the list, of course I have less excuse for forgetting!

Remember, there's still 'White Zombie' on the list, which is far worse than anything by Romero here. Not to mention the copycats.

D. Sippel says: "...if I was forced to pick only one asian horror film, I'd probably go with Ringu."<

That's one to consider adding. Would you like to add that or something else if you had the choice? You could be next in line after Q for a new addition.

Now I'm reminded that 'The Exorcist' might be one someone could nominate.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2012 8:07:09 PM PDT
C. J., I like 'Son of Dracula' more than the first Bela version. I'd be ready to include that second in line if you would like to add that. Or 'Beetlejuice'.

I don't remember 'Son of Frankenstein' well enough to help add it, so someone else would have to want that. Years ago I got the Universal Frankenstein set, and I gave away all but 'The Bride...'.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2012 8:10:51 PM PDT
Q,

I know the most recent 'I Am Legend' captured the proto-flesh-eating-zombies of the book most accurately. I didn't like that version overall, but it was technically the most faithful to the story.
'The Last Man on Earth' is kind of a joke as a movie, but it wasn't bad. I'll try to watch that again soon to verify how close they were to vamps or zomb/vamps, and how bitey they got.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 19, 2012 8:12:24 PM PDT
Q.,

Naw, this is the 'Nosferatu' with Klaus Kinski, from the late '70s. Not the silent version.

-- emptying a double barrel against Zack's Dawn.
- 28 Days of running zombs.
+ Dawn of the Dead '79 shows how its done, son. No need for a shotgun against this invasion of ingenious satire.
++ Cold Heaven ... not exactly Halloween fare, but evidence of Nic Roeg being scary talented and versatile as hell.

Plus2 Don't go down to the Mall today, you're bound to get a surprise.
Plus1 Bubba gon see what TCB means!
Minus2 The Remake! No more Dawns for Snyder.
Minus1 Carnival of Souls - similar in tone and look to 'Dementia 13'. Certainly imaginative. I was most impressed by the organ though.
