keating: DARIO ARGENTO is the master of visual technique which most Romero zombie flicks are missing.
I'd say Romero and Argento are two different flavors. Most of Argento's films have a luxurious visual style, where Romero often relies on verite (handheld shots, gritty realism, low-budget look, etc.), saying one is inferior to the other is like saying one style of filmmaking is inferior to the other. I think the world is better off with both Argento and Romero in the world, myself.
