The Best Zombie Movies

26 Jul

If your a fan of horror movies here is a list of great zombie movies to check out. These are in no particular order.

Zombieland (2009)

The perfect blend of zombie and comedy. Starring Woody Harrelson being Woody, Jessie Eisenberg being Jessie, and a great cameo of Bill Murry being Bill.

Dawn Of The Dead (remake) (2004)

A remake of George A. Romero’s movie of the same name.Both take place in a mall, but the remake answers the question, what if a zombie had a baby?

Land Of The Dead (2005)

Another one by Romero with Dennis Hopper as the ruler of a zombie free city deciding who lives and who dies.

28 Days Later (2002)

Some argue that this is more of a virus film, which maybe somewhat true…however a great story and the introduction of British zombies which move much faster.  Zombie movies have moved more towards a virus explanation of how the outbreak happens anyway. It’s a little more realistic than dead people rising from the grave. 

Dead Alive (1992)

Before Peter Jackson played with Hobbits, he made this film. Funny and creative.

Night Of The Living Dead (1968)

The George A. Romero movie that brought zombies to the mainstream. This  classic black and white film still holds up today.

Dead Snow (2009)

Nazi zombies. Need I say more? Be warned, this one has subtitles if you hate to read your movies.

Planet Terror (2007)

The only film worth watching out of the Grindhouse movies. A machine gun instead of a leg? Now your interested!

Return Of The Living Dead (1985)

Braaaains! This movie is credited with first introducing that famous zombie mantra.

Shawn Of The Dead (2004)

Another comedy/zombie film. Starts off a little slow, but stick with it…the payoff is well worth it.

DeadGirl (2008)

Sex with a zombie. Boys will be boys with a chained up naked zombie girl. This one is a primer on how to get the school’s douche bag’s penis eaten off by a zombie. 

A List Of Other Zombie Movies (In No Particular Order):

No guarantees whether these are good or bad. (But sometimes bad can be good.)

    I absolutely love horror but out of all the zombie movies, my favourites are Zombieland and Shawn of the Dead because they are just so damn funny! But then again I’m also a big fan of good-bad movies so my opinion can’t always be trusted… 😛

    • chrisdevoss August 11, 2011 at 10:23 PM #

      I agree with Zombieland. One of the best. Shawn starts to slow for me. I saw it in the theater and people actually walked out, but definitely one worth sticking through. There are some really great scenes in it.

  2. Carolina Courtland September 24, 2012 at 5:20 PM #

    I love zombie movies and I can’t wait for The Walking Dead to start back up again. I don’t know if you watch that show, it’s awesome. You never know which cast member is going to be eaten next after demanding more money from the producers.

    • Christopher De Voss September 24, 2012 at 5:26 PM #

      Best show ever! (I read some of the books too.)

  3. jiltaroo September 24, 2012 at 8:37 PM #

    My boys love Zombedies. Fido was hilarious. Not sure they are quite ready for “Dead Girl”. Great list – thank you. Jen

    • Christopher De Voss September 24, 2012 at 10:12 PM #

      Dead Girl is very adult. Lots of sex.

      • jiltaroo September 25, 2012 at 2:09 AM #

        Yes not for them at all! I think they would be more horrified by the sex!

  4. sagedoyle December 2, 2012 at 5:09 PM #

    I’ve seen most of these, I’ll have to check out the others. On your featured list, from Zombieland to Dead Girl the only one I didn’t see was Planet Terror, I need to check that one out. And 28 Weeks Later has been one of my favorite Zombie films for a while, I like it a lot better than the first one 28 Days Later. But like I told you a while back, you have to see The Horde. It’s a French zombie film and has a couple of action/fight scenes that are amazing. Great list!

    • Christopher De Voss December 4, 2012 at 7:31 PM #

      It’s actually on YouTube!

      • sagedoyle December 4, 2012 at 7:42 PM #

        Planet Terror’s on Youtube? If so I’ll have to check it out.

      • Christopher De Voss December 4, 2012 at 7:44 PM #

        No, the horde

      • sagedoyle December 4, 2012 at 7:49 PM #

        oh ok cool, watch it, you’ll love this one!

  5. A. van Nerel October 29, 2013 at 9:48 AM #

    Finally, an entire zombie catalogue online…You’re to zombies what wikipedia is to knowledge and that’s a compliment;) Thanks for this!
