BEST ZOMBIE MOVIES

P. Shamdasani
The list author says: "The best of silver-screen zombie horror."
Night of the Living Dead (Millennium Edition)
Night of the Living Dead (Millennium Edition)
"The one that started it all - a classic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Dawn of the Dead (Ultimate Edition)
Dawn of the Dead (Ultimate Edition)
"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!"
Day of the Dead (Divimax Special Edition)
Day of the Dead (Divimax Special Edition)
"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!"
Land of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut)
Land of the Dead (Unrated Director's Cut)
"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!"
George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead
George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead
"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!"
The Return of the Living Dead
The Return of the Living Dead
"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."
Night of the Living Dead
Night of the Living Dead
"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!"
Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut)
Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut)
"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!"
Day of the Dead
Day of the Dead
"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!"
Zombi 2 (25th Anniversary Special Edition 2-Disc Set)
Zombi 2 (25th Anniversary Special Edition 2-Disc Set)
"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!"
City of the Living Dead
City of the Living Dead
"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!"
The Beyond
The Beyond
"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!"
The House by the Cemetery
The House by the Cemetery
"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!"
The Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2 - Book Of The Dead Collection
The Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2 - Book Of The Dead Collection
"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!"
Army of Darkness (Boomstick Edition)
Army of Darkness (Boomstick Edition)
"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!"
28 Days Later (Widescreen Special Edition)
28 Days Later (Widescreen Special Edition)
"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!"
28 Weeks Later (Widescreen Edition)
28 Weeks Later (Widescreen Edition)
"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!"
From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series)
From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series)
"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!"
Grindhouse Presents, Planet Terror - Extended and Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Grindhouse Presents, Planet Terror - Extended and Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition)
"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!"
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (Limited Edition Tin)
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (Limited Edition Tin)
"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!"
[Rec] (2008 Spanish Movie) (all-region)
[Rec] (2008 Spanish Movie) (all-region)
"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)
Cemetery Man (1994)
"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!"
Demons
Demons
"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!"
Dead Alive
Dead Alive
"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!"
Shaun of the Dead
Shaun of the Dead
"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!"
Re-Animator (Millennium Edition)
Re-Animator (Millennium Edition)
"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!"
Dead & Buried (Limited Edition)
Dead & Buried (Limited Edition)
"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!"
Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane
Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane
"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!"
Undead
Undead
"Intentionally cheesy and gory if you like ketchup, this Australian effort is a decent zombie flick in the slapstick vein. RENT IT!"
Bio Zombie
Bio Zombie
"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!"
Versus (Special Edition)
Versus (Special Edition)
"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!"
Wild Zero
Wild Zero
"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!"
Masters of Horror: Joe Dante - Homecoming
Masters of Horror: Joe Dante - Homecoming
"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!"
Resident Evil Trilogy 1-3
Resident Evil Trilogy 1-3
"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!"
Hell of the Living Dead
Hell of the Living Dead
"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!"
The Zombie Pack (Zombi 3 / Zombie 4: After Death / Zombie 5: Killing Birds)
The Zombie Pack (Zombi 3 / Zombie 4: After Death / Zombie 5: Killing Birds)
"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!"
The Zombie Pack 2 (Burial Ground / Flesh Eater / Zombie Holocaust)
The Zombie Pack 2 (Burial Ground / Flesh Eater / Zombie Holocaust)
"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!"
Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis
Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis
"Thailand's entry into the zombie genre, but haven't seen it."
The Blind Dead Collection (Tombs of the Blind Dead / Return of the Evil Dead / The Ghost Galleon / Night of the Seagulls / Amando De Ossorio- Director)
The Blind Dead Collection (Tombs of the Blind Dead / Return of the Evil Dead / The Ghost Galleon / Night of the Seagulls / Amando De Ossorio- Director)
"The much-acclaimed Spanish blind dead series, but haven't seen any of them."
