    "Night of the Living Dead is a true horror classic zombie film that changed all the horror films that followed it. And yes this is also one of the greatest low budget cult movies ever made. Althouh there isnt much gore on it the gory scenes are shocking and really disturbing even though this is in black and white e."

    "At almost 15 years old, this movie is still a classic. It started the zombie trend with a dramatic way and spawned several games and other spin-offs such as Dead Rising and Shawn of the Dead. I didn't know it was a remake, but even so, the effects were well-done without being cheesy. Really a must watch for any zombie lover."

    "Read the book which i can assure you has absolutely nothing to do with the film. Because this movie is so much more suspenseful and action-packed. However, if you read the book or watched the film first you won't be disappointed. So yeah this movie has kept me on the edge from the start to the end/. "

    "Zombieland is one of my favorite zombie movies ever. This is a real groundbreaker among zombie movies because it is the first big zombie comedy movie ever. I'm really a zombie movie fan and i noticed that every zombie movie shows the first few weeks of a zombie outbreak. But with Zombieland it gives u a glimpse of life months/years later. BTW, i cant wait for Zombieland 2"

    "Loved this movie but the ending of this was really heartbreaking. I Am Legend shows you emotions such as emotional isolation and loneliness. I also watched the alternate ending of this movie which i do believe is close to the ending of a book which where this is based. "
