Both movies are different. They happen to share 2 things. Their name, and the fact that they are in a mall. Other than that blah blah blah, we've all heard the same stuff over and over before. I'm just trying to figure out why there is a grudge between fans of the two movies. Both movies are great examples of horror in their respective time periods. '78 was all about susspence and social commentary, '04 was about being intense and fast paced. I think the Old school fans should lighten up and be glad that zombies are making a comeback, and that with out DotD '04, Romero wouldn't have been able to continue making zombie flicks. And New schoolers need to understand that they wouldn't have DotD '04 or 28 Days Later without our their school counterparts.
