Easily one of the best zombie flicks I have ever seen. I almost want them to make another and call it a trilogy. I own this one and the sequel. The British make decent horror and comedy (Shaun of the Dead)
An American Werewolf in London (1981): This John Landis directed comedy/horror film may make you think twice before backpacking through Europe. This award-winning cult classic features a pretty graphic transformation, while being frightening and funny.
