they are atmospheric .. but they dont grab me.

I like the 'end of the world' survivor type themes of the modern zombie flicks.
and the gratuitous gore adds an element i like as well.. (if done properly - a la romero)
That's what I love in a zombie movie. A few people trying to survive what is rapidly approaching the end of the world. Also, to add to the list of things I like (which include those Urge mentioned), the group dynamic of people trying to survive and the way people always end up getting themselves into more trouble because of greed or power.

and how regular joes become leaders, and previously upwardly mobile 'big men' are useless in the new world.

having worked in a corporate environment most of my life - i fully understand why this theme continues to pop up.
I'm sure things are the same in the hollywood machine.

Yep, I loved Hopper's character and his fall from the top in Land of the Dead (say what you want about it but even an ok Romero zombie movie is better than 90% of the crap being churned out).

I don't know if anyone else see's it this way, but i wreckon horror or zombie movies became modern when they all started using CGI, and we all know how crap most CGI turns out, so I would go with a "classic" zombie film.

I would probably have to watch Zombie Holocaust every time i see that asian doctor randomly standing there I start to laugh, especially when he jumps out the window.

Yeah what's up with that?? That should happen one of these days; though if I ever make a zombie or horror film, I would try to do somethng to make the guys cross their legs!

On topic, I would go with classic zombie films anyday! I dunno why, but to me, they look more real you know? Like, you watch it, and you can really imagine it happening you know? Now, what with all the CGI, they look fake and...not horrifying at all to me =p

Classic, Slow moving flesh eating zombies.

I dont like the running zombies at all.
Style wise I prefer Zombi2 type Zombies or Zombies similar to what Fuci did in The Beyond,the end in the hospital.There are no Zombies like Fulci's Zombies.

Well Savini's Zombies in the NOTLD rmake were fantastic. To bad they cut the shit out of that movie.
