Zombie Movies

1. Night of the Living Dead

It was always going to be in the top 3 Zombie movies of all time. For me, it gets number 1 due to the fact that all other zombie movies have been infected by it (See what I did there?).

 

2. Zombie 2

It’s the all time greatest match-up, a shark versus a zombie. Only Lucio Fulci could create such a wonderful spectacle, the likes of which we may never see again. I love this movie, despite the fact that it starts a little slow and it’s badly dubbed (like most Italian movies). It was always going to come second on our zombie movies list, cause it’s as original as the movie I’ve put in first place.

 

3. Dawn of the Dead
The Original, not the remake! This movie has slow zombies in it also (my favourite type). The aspect of horror I most love is the “don’t do that you idiot” side of things. Like when someone suggests spreading out to look for a mysterious lost team member. Don’t spread out you idiots, stick together… and live. The slow zombies make you feel this constantly. They’re walking so slowly, how can you not escape them?

 

4. Evil Dead
I like the first one, the second it the same but more comical. If you get a chance watch 4, it is pretty funny.

5. Braindead
I wish Peter Jackson had stuck to making movies like this and “Bad Taste”. Saddly he didn’t, instead he made overly long, boring movies like Godzilla, Lord of the Rings and f*cking Tin Tin. This is still one of the great zombie movies and deserves to be up here. Watch and lament Jackson’s fall from grace.

 

6. 28 Days Later
The scariest zombie movies on our list so far, this movie is made so well, it could have been made by Americans… Kidding.

 

7. Re-Animator
Anyone who hasn’t seen this, should! Watch the trailer, buy it, borrow it, steal it, download it but watch it any way you can. Great movie to watch in a group!

 

8. Day of the Dead
A classic, it makes every “zombie movies” list around and it’s on ours.

 

9. Zombieland
The newest movie to make our list. This movie steals a lot from,  and in some cases even improves on, the classics. This is one of those fun zombie movies to watch with friends. Very easy to watch and has a high re-watchability factor. Woody Harrelson is great and should appear in more zombie movies, he’s got the perfect demeanour.

 

10. Dawn of the Dead (2004)
I love the start of this movie, when the song by Johnny Cash starts playing. The movie is kind of a mix between the original and zombieland. It takes itself slightly seriously, in an attempt to build up tension but also has a slap stick side to it. All and all, not the worst of the zombie movies and maybe deserves its place on our beloved list.
