Ranking George Romero's "Of the Dead" Films

As you no doubt have heard, George Romero passed away earlier today.  In honor of the man who was the progenitor of the shambling, flesh-eating undead, here are my rankings of his six zombie movies.

1. Dawn of the Dead
Everyone knows this is the best one.

2. Night of the Living Dead
The grandfather of the "modern" zombie movie.  Never actually telling us why the outbreak started was a great move.

3. Land of the Dead
I really liked this one.  Sue me.

4. Day of the Dead
The scene where Bub shoots the human, salutes him, and then the guy who is being eaten yelling at the zombies to choke on his body parts is a classic!

5. Diary of the Dead
Not completely terrible, but still suffers from Found Footage Syndrome(FFS).

6. Being Bitten By An Actual Zombie

7. Survival of the Dead
Sorry, but this movie was excruciatingly bad.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to watch Dawn of the Dead.

Rest in peace, George.
