A Listmania! list by P. Shamdasani (Hong Kong)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "The best of silver-screen zombie horror."
Night of the Living Dead (Millennium Edition)
1.  Night of the Living Dead (Millennium Edition) DVD ~ Bill 'Chilly Billy' Cardille
The list author says:
  "The one that started it all - a classic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$10.09   Used & New from: $0.92
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (673 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Dawn of the Dead (Ultimate Edition)
2.  Dawn of the Dead (Ultimate Edition) DVD ~ David Emge
The list author says:
  "Romero's sequel to his genre-creating classic redefines horror yet again, fusing the film with both shocks and social commentary. Skip the so-called 'Director's Cut' and watch the original version. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$58.94   Used & New from: $18.65
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (734 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Day of the Dead (Divimax Special Edition)
3.  Day of the Dead (Divimax Special Edition) DVD ~ Lori Cardille
The list author says:
  "Romero's third sequel is somewhat dissapointing, mainly due to the low-budget the director was given. But despite, it's an interesting beast, balancing its commentary with heavy gore well. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $1.49
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (483 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Land of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut)
4.  Land of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut) DVD ~ Simon Baker
The list author says:
  "Romero's fourth addition to his series trades in scares for heavy doses of social commentary. The weakest of the series, but it's still bloody good zombie fun. RECOMMENDED!"
$4.85   Used & New from: $0.01
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (424 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead
5.  George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead DVD ~ Josh Close
The list author says:
  "Easily the weakest of the Living Dead films - all the gore, frights and chills are long gone, traded in for preachy social commentary and docu-flavor cliches. See "REC" for what it should've been. RENT IT!"
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01
3.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (226 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Return of the Living Dead
6.  The Return of the Living Dead DVD ~ Clu Gulager
The list author says:
  "Dan O'Bannon's classic zombie masterpiece - the writer of Alien riffs heavily on Romero's flicks, with gratuitous nudity and a punk soundtrack to boot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Parts 2 and 3 come RECOMMENDED! Ignore parts 4 & 5 completely."
$8.74   Used & New from: $2.09
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (394 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Night of the Living Dead
7.  Night of the Living Dead DVD ~ Tony Todd
The list author says:
  "Tom Savini's remake of "Night" lacks the chills of the original, but makes up with a more satisfying ending, large doses of gore and two great horror veterans in leading roles. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$6.38   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (273 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut)
8.  Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut) DVD ~ Sarah Polley
The list author says:
  "The reimagining of "Dawn" is an instant classic, a genre-defining horror film that perfectly fuses action and scares in a cohesive big-budget zombie flick, challenging any of the would-be naysayers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$6.45   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (814 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Day of the Dead
9.  Day of the Dead DVD ~ Mena Suvari
The list author says:
  "Criminally underrated, this remake takes a cue from Snyder's "Dawn", trading in the original's heavy-handed plot for an action-packed, gore-splattered ride. It isn't perfect, but all the bases are covered. RECOMMENDED!"
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01
2.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (203 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Zombi 2 (25th Anniversary Special Edition 2-Disc Set)
10.  Zombi 2 (25th Anniversary Special Edition 2-Disc Set) DVD ~ Tisa Farrow
The list author says:
  "Lucio Fulci's semi-sequel to "Dawn..." is actually a prequel to Romero's quintology. The film is darker and gorier than any of Romero's films, and a perfect, if unofficial, addition. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $2.83
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (490 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

See buying options
City of the Living Dead
11.  City of the Living Dead DVD ~ Janet Agren
The list author says:
  "Fulci's "City..." has nothing to do with Romero's Dead series, but is still a fantastically scare-filled and gruesome Italian horror flick. The ending, however, makes no sense at all. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $1.31
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (203 customer reviews)

See buying options
The Beyond
12.  The Beyond DVD ~ Catriona MacColl
The list author says:
  "The last part of Fulci's zombie trilogy - many see it as his best, but while the gore is definitely up to par, the slow pacing and lack of any sense hinders the film. Nonetheless, a worthy Euro-zombie flick. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $3.71
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (225 customer reviews)

The House by the Cemetery
13.  The House by the Cemetery DVD ~ Silvia Collatina
The list author says:
  "A side-note to Fulci's trilogy - cliche-ridden in an unintentionally hilarious way, file this in the hallucinatory haunted house serial-killer zombie section. RENT IT!"
Used & New from: $0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (160 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2 - Book Of The Dead Collection
14.  The Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2 - Book Of The Dead Collection DVD ~ Bruce Campbell
The list author says:
  "Sam Raimi's Evil Dead films are icons of the horror genre, if not officially zombie flicks. The first entry is screaming, blood-spilling non-stop 90-minute video nasty, while the sequel mixes horror and humor with perfect measure for what is personally the greatest film of all-time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $249.88
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Army of Darkness (Boomstick Edition)
15.  Army of Darkness (Boomstick Edition) DVD ~ Bruce Campbell
The list author says:
  "Embracing the comedic side, Raimi sends his hero back to the 13th Century, fusing humour with action/adventure in a hilarious and plain cool addition to the series. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$82.29   Used & New from: $2.67
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (909 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

28 Days Later (Widescreen Special Edition)
16.  28 Days Later (Widescreen Special Edition) DVD ~ Ray Panthaki
The list author says:
  "Danny Boyle's zombie flick is what you'd expect from a British addition: less gore, more scares and just an exciting flick that's heavily influenced by Romero's Dead series. RECOMMENDED!"
$9.22   Used & New from: $0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (974 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

28 Weeks Later (Widescreen Edition)
17.  28 Weeks Later (Widescreen Edition) DVD ~ Jeremy Renner
The list author says:
  "An improvement on the derivative first entry, Weeks' adds a different spin on this zombified world. A highly original story, gore galore and handheld cinematography makes this the first real 21st century zombie flick. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.01
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (399 customer reviews) | 11 customer discussions

From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series)
18.  From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series) DVD ~ Harvey Keitel
The list author says:
  "Vampires actually, but who's keeping track? Tarantino and Rodriguez take numerous cues from the Evil Dead series to create a rollicking homage to their favorite horror flicks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (367 customer reviews)

Grindhouse Presents, Planet Terror - Extended and Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition)
19.  Grindhouse Presents, Planet Terror - Extended and Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Rose McGowan
The list author says:
  "A balls-out, action-packed thrill ride, "Planet Terror" tips its hat to the best of the genre and then takes its well-deserved place among them. Forget "Death Proof", it makes a great double-bill with "From Dusk Till Dawn." HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (343 customer reviews) | 8 customer discussions

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (Limited Edition Tin)
20.  Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (Limited Edition Tin) DVD ~ Cristina Galbó
The list author says:
  "A brilliantly ahead-of-its-time Spanish zombie entry. Bleak, nihilistic and gory without sacrificing its story, this hidden gem provides a perfect location (small-town England), a clever zombie origin, frightening make-up and some real chills. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $26.99

[Rec] (2008 Spanish Movie) (all-region)
21.  [Rec] (2008 Spanish Movie) (all-region) 
The list author says:
  "More Spanish zombies, this creatively creepy flick takes the best of the "Blair Witch" method and blends it perfectly with the endless-terror of the zombie genre for the perfect handheld zombie flick. Exactly what Romero's "Diary" should've been. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

Cemetery Man (1994)
22.  Cemetery Man (1994) DVD ~ Rupert Everett
The list author says:
  "An existential zombie flick, this Italian addition sees Rupert Everett battle off the living dead, join in on some necrophilia and never return home. Beautiful cinematography and plenty of nudity detracts from the philosophical story. RECOMMENDED!"
$62.99   Used & New from: $16.99

Demons
23.  Demons DVD ~ Urbano Barberini
The list author says:
  "Bava's demons are more demons than zombies, but that doesn't stop this film from having all the living dead trademarks. Gore-filled, claustrophobic and just plain freaky - an influential crazy classic. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $19.98

Dead Alive
24.  Dead Alive DVD ~ Timothy Balme
The list author says:
  "Peter Jackson, pre-Lord of the Rings, rips off Raimi's ED2 with this gory, bloody mess. Hilarious and ultimately very sick, make sure to get the fully uncut imported "Braindead" version. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$59.95   Used & New from: $7.98

Shaun of the Dead [DVD] (2004)
25.  Shaun of the Dead [DVD] (2004) DVD ~ Kate Ashfield
The list author says:
  "From the creators of "Spaced"! "Shaun..." didn't meet the hype, but by cleverly blending zombie cliches with British culture, it stood out as one of the few great zomcom flicks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$7.48   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (871 customer reviews)

Re-Animator (Millennium Edition)
26.  Re-Animator (Millennium Edition) DVD ~ Jeffrey Combs
The list author says:
  "A bizarre, obscene and hilarious loose adaptation of Lovecraft - not many zombies in it, but you won't mind once you see the living dead go down on a scream queen. Two decent sequels, Bride of the Re-Animator and Beyond Re-Animator. RECOMMENDED!"
Used & New from: $1.08
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (281 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Dead & Buried (Limited Edition)
27.  Dead & Buried (Limited Edition) DVD ~ James Farentino
The list author says:
  "An earlier effort from "Return"'s Dan O'Bannon, spinning an original twist on the zombie flick. Equal parts classic mystery and 80s horror, it's a must-see for those who feel the overdone sub-genre is a one-trick pony. RENT IT!"
$10.96   Used & New from: $5.78
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (87 customer reviews)

Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane
28.  Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane DVD ~ David Chisum
The list author says:
  "Zombies On A Plane - what else do you need? Better than the Snakes/Samuel L. Jackson slice of stupidity, "Flight" actually does mix humor and horror, while keeping firmly in tune with the cliches of its two genres. RECOMMENDED!"
$10.17   Used & New from: $0.34
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Undead
29.  Undead DVD ~ Felicity Mason
The list author says:
  "Intentionally cheesy and gory if you like ketchup, this Australian effort is a decent zombie flick in the slapstick vein. RENT IT!"
$10.00   Used & New from: $0.71
3.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (139 customer reviews)

Bio Zombie
30.  Bio Zombie DVD ~ Jordan Chan
The list author says:
  "Hong Kong's addition to the zombie genre takes a page out of Romero's 'Dawn' to create a hilarious slapstick zombie flick with a brilliantly nihilistic ending. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$10.29   Used & New from: $3.26
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Versus (Special Edition)
31.  Versus (Special Edition) DVD ~ Tak Sakaguchi
The list author says:
  "The only great Japanese zombie film, Versus sees a gun-and-sword sporting convict battling zombies in deserted forest. Definitely worth a watch for samurai and horror fans. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
$25.48   Used & New from: $0.48
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (149 customer reviews)

Wild Zero
32.  Wild Zero DVD ~ Guitar Wolf
The list author says:
  "A bizarre and sometimes unbearable Japanese rock'n'roll zombie flick - most won't be able to stand it, and with good reason. RENT IT!"
$19.08   Used & New from: $8.46
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

Masters of Horror: Joe Dante - Homecoming
33.  Masters of Horror: Joe Dante - Homecoming DVD ~ Thea Gill
The list author says:
  "The best single hour of zombie you'll ever see - Joe Dante mixes blatantly clever political satire with the staples of the zombie genre for a great episode of the classic show. RECOMMENDED!"
$6.39   Used & New from: $0.01
2.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (57 customer reviews)

Resident Evil Trilogy 1-3
34.  Resident Evil Trilogy 1-3 DVD ~ Milla Jovovich
The list author says:
  "Zombies for the mainstream - the three game adaptations don't do justice to their source, but they're bearable. Part 2 is easily the strongest and most faithful. RENT IT!"
$11.14   Used & New from: $2.27
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (174 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Hell of the Living Dead
35.  Hell of the Living Dead DVD ~ Margit Evelyn Newton
The list author says:
  "A weak, almost laughable Italian Dawn of the Dead rip-off, down to the cribbed storyline and stolen costumes. Stock footage only adds to the embarassment, but worth watching for the decent-looking zombies and heavy doses of gore. SKIP IT!"
Used & New from: $4.27
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (58 customer reviews)

The Zombie Pack (Zombi 3 / Zombie 4: After Death / Zombie 5: Killing Birds)
36.  The Zombie Pack (Zombi 3 / Zombie 4: After Death / Zombie 5: Killing Birds) DVD ~ Lara Wendel
The list author says:
  "The three almost-unbearable sequels to Fulci's original Zombie - the first sequel is barely connected to Fulci's masterpiece, the other two not at all. SKIP IT!"
$10.12   Used & New from: $7.95
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

The Zombie Pack 2 (Burial Ground / Flesh Eater / Zombie Holocaust)
37.  The Zombie Pack 2 (Burial Ground / Flesh Eater / Zombie Holocaust) DVD ~ Alexandra Delli Colli
The list author says:
  "Three Eurozombie flicks from the height of the genre. BURIAL GROUND is a cheap, cheesy, greasy, gory classic, with incest to boot. ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST is more of a cannibal flick, and FLESHEATER is supposedly a Night of the Living Dead cash-in, but haven't seen it. RENT IT!"
