"Night of the Living Dead" was hands down- a fantastic, overly dramatic movie that I really enjoyed. The fact that it was black and white and made in 1968 (not 1998, sorry- i wrote it wrong the first time I posted it since I did it at 2am at night yesterday) made it really seem like one of those typical 1950's movies. And I liked the fact that it was overly dramatic because it made it funny to laugh it. I felt like the people could have had a better chance at fighting off the zombies though since they seemed a little bit pathetic at hobbling around- just take a giant plank of wood, wack them on the head, and they should be good. I don't understand how dead/zombie people could be so strong and break through the house so well either, but such is Hollywood. Zombie films aren't exactly my favorite because I haven't found any that are particularly "realistic" (besides the film "The Crazies"- who weren't exactly zombies, but acted like them almost. I am however, a fan of "Zombieland"- not the real deal zombies, but it was great too.
Vampire movies are another one that I can't exactly get into as far as horror goes. They haven't really freaked me out because I guess I know they're not real. I think "Van Halen" was good for special effects and such, but not as far as creeping me out is concerned. And "Twilight" has pretty much destroyed any hope for making vampires scary anytime soon, since they sparkle and stuff.
