Zombie Movie Trailers. (Recommended)

   Many people credit George Romero for bringing Zombies out of the dark, eh... well maybe I didn't choose my words very smartly, but you get what I mean.

  Let me begin again again.

   George Romero has done something very great, not only did he take a genre that had no life...  argh again with the cheap jokes.

   One last chance please, I promise I'll get it right this time, with no further preamble.

   Mr Romero has done one thing that is truly remarkable in the movie industry, he has actually remodeled the Zombie genre to the point of actually gaining popularity over that of vampires, today there are an average of 2 studio movies and 20 independents produced per year... that's pretty impressive if you ask me.

  I have made it my goal in life to seek out those films, some great and some horrible, in the hopes of saving you the time and a lot of frustration.

So, let's get to the matter at hand, in this case "Zombie Movie Trailers".

The first batch are from movies that I've seen, some a couple of days and weeks ago some so far back that I can't even remember, but each is highly recommended, at least if your tastes are akin to mine.

They are not in any order other than how quickly they came up to my mind.

[*REC]  - A movie made in Spain in 2007 that later spawned an American film called "Quarantine" it is a very realistic movie (read my full review here) - yes Spain means that the movie is in Spanish.

Last of The Living -  This is a Zombie comedy from New Zealand released in 2008 very funny, very funny (read my full review here)

Night Of The Living Dead - (1968) Just so you know, this is the one from Romero I was talking about earlier. (read my full review here)

Survival Of The Dead - (2009) Yet another thought provoking film by Romero. (read my full review here)

Dead Snow - (2009) A group of Norwegian skiers get attacked by Zombie Nazis , but don't worry this aren't "Surfing Nazis from Outer Space" or anything like that (read my full review here)

Zombieland - (2009) Zombies and Woody Harrelson, a very nice combo.

Shaun of the Dead - (2004) A British comedy, probably a genre changer, maybe not, you tell me.

Return of the Living Dead - (1985) I'll put this one out there even though most people in the world ave seen this on TV at one time or another.

AMC's The Walking Dead - (2010)  If you want to see a movie that doesn't end in 2 hours watch this TV series.

Now the second batch, these are the movies that were recommended to me and I am just dying to see.

Pontypool - (2008) Now this is a movie I know almost nothing about, just what I see from the trailer and that a friend, Fredzombie, told me I would like it because it's really thought provoking.

Le Horde - (2009) A French movie, was recommended too, looks good.

Zombies of Mass Destruction - (2009) Zombie satire with a lot of political jokes.

Juan of the dead - Cuba's funny take on the Zombie genre, coming out in this year supposedly, looks very promising.

Resident Evil: Afterlife - (2010) After watching the rest of the series and being very happy about it I cannot wait till this one arrives on my mailbox.
**EDIT: since writing this I have had the chance to watch this movie (read my full review here)
