You know what? I'm voting 1990. Yeah, the first is a classic, but I just like the vibe of the remake. It had a good look, and was a fun flick to sit through. I prefer watching it with the original Dawn and Day flicks. A good trilogy to sit through.
Now, if I could only find an unrated copy of Land.
I love the 1990 version, but my love for the original, given the timing it came out and the small budget Romero had, made me vote for that one. I would have loved to have been in the theater when it first came out. People probably didn't know what they had gotten themselves into.
It is sad. There are some upcoming movies that have raised my hope for horror a little, The Thing being at the top of the list. IF it's good, maybe others will learn. That's a big if, but I have a good feeling about this one.
This is actually a tough one for me. I liked the remake a LOT more than I probably should. And I clicked on this thread just days after watching the original for the first time in about 15 years. It's flawed. But then, few movies aren't . . . .
Gonna have to go with undecided, I think.
On an unrelated (but kinda not) note: Wish me luck, guys! I just got hired by a local theater company to be Assistant Director on a stage adaptation of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. It's gonna run around Halloween, should be a really good show. I'm stoked!
