Try this quiz on for size, hope it works okay. Wanted to make it not too easy but also not so hard people didn't bother. Should be some gimmes here but then a few harder ones.

Will be doing more of these this month; let me know if you have any suggestions for others!

London, England appears twice. Is that right?

That was fun! Although some might argue about the definition of zombies, like in the case of the L.A. movie.

Yep, or about 28 Days Later, but I go by overall consensus these days about those two, having enough of a zombie presence to be zombie flicks. :-) Thanks for playing!

What's next -- perhaps some sort of slasher film quiz, or killer critters.

Yeah, but it left a whole bunch out in favor of more popular and especially recent zombie films. I do find it amusing that I'm one of 4% of people who guessed Cemetary Man. :P

They def should've thrown in Undead and Zombi 2. Even if I was left unimpressed by the latter.

Yah, one problem with adding Zombi 2 aka "Zombie" is as soon as one types "Zombie" (or Zombi) on Sporcle they've gotten it right. So everyone would have gotten it regardless of whether they knew it or not. (I think there's a way to set it so you have to type something exactly, i.e. "Zombi 2/Zombie" but that could be frustrating for everyone.) Maybe we'll do a "Level 2/Hard" Zombie movie quiz next ;-)

Will try to add a few more stumpers to the next horror quizzes.

I don't know, I'll accept the "infected" as zombies, but the creatures in that other movie are just way too urbane.

You know, I just watched the original "Night of the Living Dead" again and it struck me that it has some pretty quick, rock-wielding zombies, which goes against the usual slow zombie stereotype.
