Dawn or Shaun?

Purely for research purposes (I have a (sort of) zombie character in my WiP, Bartholomew Jones and the Demon Pirate), I watched Zack Snyder's 2004 remake of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead over the weekend.

I'm not a fan a hack and slash horror, especially when that's really all there is to a movie, but Dawn of the Dead has a lot more going for it. This is one remake I enjoyed at least as much, if not more than the original.

Of course, for me, the ultimate zombie movie is Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's hilarious homage to the zombie genre, Shaun of the Dead (also released in 2004). Definitely one for your "Watch these movies again pile."  

Not many movies can bill themselves as "A romantic comedy, with zombies." and really mean it.

How about you?

How do you like your zombies?
