10 Zombies MovieThey hunger for human flesh. Today we will be counting down our picks for the best zombie movies. Don't hate us for not including The Walking Dead on our list. While that award winning project blends all the things we love most about the genre, its compelling characters, moral dilemmas and stomach turning effects are all on the small screen and therefor not allegeable.
10. [REC] (2007)
Kicking of our list is the Spanish zombie flick that inspired the Hollywood remake Foreign Tee. REC follows a reporting team as they film the night shift at a local fire station on a routine call. However this call is anything but a routine as they soon hunted by hellish ghouls that can climb walls. Just keep some crusifix and some holy water on you and you should be good.
9. Zombie 2 - a.k.a. Zombie (1979)
This cult classic follows a reporter and a daughter of a missing scientist as they explore a mysterious island that is crawling with the undead. While the film shamelessly cashed in on the succes of George A. Romero's Dawn of the dead, it is still a must see for zombie lovers. Keep your eyes open for outrageous gore and maggot infested monsters that feed on sharks.
8. Dead Snow (2009)
Norwegian film makers decided zombies weren't scary enough, so why not Nazi zombies? A group of students on a mountain vacation are confronted with a terrifying piece of history. After being cursed and left to freeze to death, these soldiers of the third reich feast on the flesh of anyone foolish enough to cross their path. Wind them up boys!
7. Braindead (1992)
Before he took us on a journey to destroy the on ring, Peter Jackson created this off the wall zombie splatter flick. A village idiot attempts to hide his overbearing mom from the town. Did we mention the part about her being an undead flesh eater? This all out gore fest is funny to the point of ridiculous. But trust us, never did lawn care tools come in so handy.
6. Zombieland (2009)
A group of unlikely survivors takes a post apocalyptic road trip across the mid west to find a safe haven. You can't beat Zombie Land's humor, incredible slow-mo title sequence, survival rules, twinkie crazed Woodie Harrelson and Bill Murray cameo. Best of all, this film features the most bone chilling ghoul ever to hit the silver screen: a zombie clown.
5. Shaun of the Dead (2004)
Shaun's having a bad day. This dead beat is trying to salvage the relationship while also playing hero when the zombie apocalypse arrives. The plan? To drink the local pub untill everything blows over. This may be a parodie about zombie flicks, but this film breaths new life into the genre with it's laughs, scares and its unique zombie killing techniques.
4. The Return of the Living Dead
When a medical warehouse worker tries to show of, he accidentially unleashes a gas that causes the dead to reanimate And guess what, decapitating their bodys does nothing. And burning their bodies makes matters worse. Set to a kickass soundtrack of deathrock and punk, this landmark flick shows us what a zombie's favourite food is: brains.
3. 28 Days Later
When well meaning activists free animals from a lab, they unintentionally release a rage virus. Cue to a month later when all of London lies in ruins. A male carrier wakes up from a coma and unites with other survivors to locate fortified military base. This ain't your standard gratuitous gore fest. 28 Days Later is a thoughtful exploration of human nature. Plus, running zombies.
2. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Not only is this Romero classic one of the best zombie flicks, it's also one of the best horror films in history. We follow two swat team members, a traffic reporter and a TV exec as they try to survive the end of the world by taking refuge in a mall. This revolutionary film leads thrills and social commentary. And you know what? The 2004 remake isn't half bad either.
1. Night of the Living Dead
Taking the top spot on our list is Romero's original cult classic that made zombies a household name. Despite the fact the word is never used. This subversive film sees the dead rise and attack a man and five others that are hold up in a farm house. Laced with social commentary on issues like racism, this flick moves from atmosfericly scary to downright terrifying in the final act.
