This weekend delivers another chapter of undead terror, with the release of 'Sex and the City 2' 'George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead.' In the latest installment, survivors on a secluded island fight amongst themselves over how to live in a zombie-ravaged world, where friends and family rise from the grave to eat your brains.

A writer-director for over 40 years, George A. Romero is considered the godfather of the modern zombie films, updating the silent and methodical threats from atmospheric voodoo-inspired creatures, and turning them into decaying monsters who crawl out of the ground with a craving for flesh.

"They're coming to get you, Barbara." - 'Night of the Living Dead' (1968)
A low-budget indie film that was later preserved in the National Film Registry, 'Night of the Living Dead' shocked audiences with its levels of gore and its subversive commentary of race relations. The now-legendary opening of the film with the unlucky Barbara -- who spends the majority of the film in a hysterical fit -- introduced audiences to a new horror movie-evil that wasn't some actor in a rubber monster suit.



Zombie vs. Helicopter - 'Dawn of the Dead' (1978)
Romero's vision of the zombie apocalypse is an unrelenting world where zombies eventually outnumber living humans. In 'Dawn of the Dead,' Romero expanded upon the survivors' hunt for safety -- ingeniously settling in an abandoned shopping mall. For the four protagonists of the film, zombie threats eventually become a daily occurrence, and the trick is to just lay low and stay out of their way.



Zombie vs. Shark - 'Zombi 2' (1979)
Alternatively known as 'Zombie' in the States, this sequel to the Italian release of 'Dawn of the Dead' -- which actually has nothing to do with that movie -- comes from Italian shock-auteur Lucio Fulci. A loose storyline about journalists investigating mysterious deaths on a tropical island is an excuse to film some of the goriest zombie deaths in movie history. The most audacious moment from the film is this notable sequence where a zombie and shark (using a real shark to wrestle with the stuntman) fight over who gets to eat an unsuspecting scuba diver. As if there weren't enough reasons to be afraid to go in the water.



The Tarman - 'Return of the Living Dead' (1985)
Dan O'Bannon's "punk rockers versus zombies" movie plays with the idea that 'Night of the Living Dead' was a true story that was later covered up by the government. When bumbling morgue attendants accidentally re-awaken the original real-life zombie threats of the 1960s, they unleash the half-melted Tarman, who utters the one thought we know are on zombies' minds all the time: "Brains!"



Bub the Zombie - 'Day of the Dead' (1986)
Romero delved even further into his vision of a society that learns to adapt to the never-ending zombie presence with 'Day of the Dead.' The real villain of the film is Captain Rhodes, an abusive leader of a military team trying to conduct research on the zombie plague. The most memorable character from the film is Bub, a docile zombie with memories of his past life, who is eventually taught how to use a gun -- for reasons that made sense at the time. By the finale of the movie, audiences find themselves rooting for the zombie to get his revenge on the sadistic human.



The Bloodiest Scene Ever - 'Dead Alive' (1992)
Before he was winning Oscars by directing fantasy epics, Peter Jackson made this over-the-top zombie film in his native New Zealand. It's hard to pick just one moment from a film that includes kung-fu priests, rat-monkeys, and re-animated intestines, but the finale -- which pumps five gallons of fake blood per second -- pushes the zombie mayhem into a symphony of slapstick.



Zombie Killing Gets Existential - 'Cemetery Man' (1994)
Rupert Everett stars in this Italian film, as a cemetery caretaker who spends his nights dealing with the recently buried, and their penchant for rising from the dead. The task of zombie dispatching interferes with all other aspects of his life, ruining his chances at love, and bounding him to the cemetery for what appears to be an eternity -- reinforcing the idea that everybody's job starts to get a little monotonous, even if your job is to return the dead to their final resting place.



Zombie Baby - 'Dawn of the Dead' (2004)
The rare remake that holds up to the original, Zack Snyder's adrenaline-filled update of the Romero classic turns the shopping mall citadel into a fortified base of action. One of the few films to use fast-moving zombies -- or "zoombies," as they're known -- 'Dawn of the Dead' barely gives the audience any time to breathe, shocking audiences scene after scene, especially with this infamous moment featuring an undead infant.



'Don't Stop Me Now' - 'Shaun of the Dead' (2004)
From British comedians Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright comes the zombie movie for zombie movie-lovers. Slackers Shaun and Ed must fight off a zombie invasion, with their only survival guide being the zombie movies we all grew up with. Trying to hide out at the local bar, they have to take care of the undead owner, and make sure to keep quiet about it -- failing spectacularly in the process.
