Top movies of any genre that involves the living dead/zombies.

The Top TenXW

1Shaun of the Dead

I have to be honest, this movie was not number 1 when I created this list. But you don't know how glad I am that it became the cream of the crop. Truly cool movie. - aeromaxx777

Not scary but if you haven't seen this movie go watch it Simon Peggy and nick frost are amazing in a lot of movies together but this a king of comedy and great movie must take this to your grave if you haven't seen it MUST WATCH

Perfect movie. This and Zombieland prove that a zombie movie works so well if mixed with comedy.

I hate horror comedies

2Zombieland

This movie has the rules to be the greatest zombie movie ever" so nut up or shut up and buckle your seatbelts, cause no Code red mountain dew or twinkiw will match the awesomeness of this movie. - theTwister

Just finished watching it. Most of the things the girls do are so mean and stupid (I would've shot them! ) but everything else is cool. I love how much Tallahassee wants a twinkie, and how nerdy the main character is. I love the part when he accidentally shoots Bill Murray. I was like "NO! D: IT'S BILL! " It was so funny! Watch this movie! - maddyparrot22

I agree this dose deserves to be number1 mostly because I watch it all the time and I don't know 1person that doesn't like zombie land. Probably because there's a little girl that fakes a bite then robs you!

I'm sorry but how the hell did two comedy movies about zombies make it to the top of the list? Zombies are supposed to be scary not funny!

Danny Boyle's epic survival tale is Dawn of The Dead in London effectively. Swapping the shopping mall of Pittsburgh for the streets of London, Boyle has created a horror film with the brutality of the Romero franchise and the thrill of the Hitchcock films. - thesentinel82

Incredible. It's atmosphere is incredibly potent, and it is one hell of a thrilling ride. The zombies, or "infected", are legitimately terrifying due to their unpredictable and rage fuelled behaviour. And the fact that they run is just... Horrifying. It also features great performances from the likes of Cillian Murphy and Christopher Eccleston. My favourite Danny Boyle film.

Should be number one! I've seen a lot of zombie movies, but this is by far my favorite! Danny Boyle, Cillian Murphy and running zombies, what else do you need for a great zombie movie?!

Even if this movie did mentally scar me, I still loved it. It's definitely one of my favorite zombie movies. I could watch it over and over again!

4Dawn of the Dead (2004)

So unique, unlike other zombie movies. It has a plot that will blow your mind. They make it more realistic, and frightening. Definitely deserves this spot in the Top 10.

Zack Snyder's brilliant remake of the Romero classic is brutal, unrelenting and features some superb characters and individual storylines. -

I was terrified at 5 years when I saw this movie. Just the fact that the zombies look nightmarish and could actually run just scared the crap outta me.

Not my favorite Snyder movie, that favor goes to Batman V Superman and 300, but a great directorial debut and a pretty good Zombie movie.

5Dawn of the Dead (1979)

. . . The 2004 remake of this AND the indie remake of Day of the Dead are higher then this? How? This movie is the king of zombie movies. It was the first movie that I saw and felt for the characters. The feeling of tension, the raw emotion, the vivid characters, the catchy-as-hell music, and the great quotes (We got this man! We got this by the ass! ) make it the best movie of all time, and the best zombie movie by far.

Hello! This movie inspired all the zombie films we have nowadays. I don't state that Dawn of the Dead is the best ever but it deserves to be at least in the top 5. Modern people don't praise classic zombie movies. Sad! - Alexandr

I do agree that Dawn of the Dead is the bet zombie film but Night of the Living Dead was the film that started and inspired all the zombie films we see today. - XtremeNerdz12

Best movie ever. How the hell is Shaun of the Dead is rank 1. That movie was a joke. This is the best ever zombie film of all time. It paved way for the modern zombie genre. This film has awesome plot, great acting, great soundtrack and intense scares! Even till now it frightens me.

Are you kidding me that this movie is this low on the list! Half the movies above this aren't even in the same league.

6Night of the Living Dead (1968)

A terrifying look at the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. Society's struggle to come to terms with the dead rising from their graves is such a disturbing look into the human psyche and the character turmoils are startling and morose. A frightening look at the apocalypse and how the human race reacts to the need for survival -

This movie will always hold a special place in my heart. It should definitely be in the top ten and if I had my way first. This list actually isn't that bad surprisingly

This movie and George A. Romero are the sole reason for any of the movies listed above and below. It's the first zombie movie how is it number 8?!? WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO?!?

This should be No. 1. It's the only scary zombie movie ever made.

7Night of the Living Dead (1990)

This movie is at least top 2 or 3 only behind dawn of the dead

8Resident Evil

Why is this not at the top of the list instead of a comedy movie... Zombie movies aren't supposed to be funny!

This is my favourite ever zombie movie. And I think it should be at the top, because Shaun Of The Dead is a funny movie and not so much horror. I enjoy both the films and the games for this one and my favourite Resident Evil movie is Apocalypse and my favourite game is The Unberella Chronicles. Thumbs up for Resident Evil. It should be at the top.

Simply amazing! I would say the first one was best. - Zackary1992

9The Evil Dead

A brilliant black comedy/horror blending excellent special effects with a fantastic character portrayal by the awkward Bruce Campbell. -

10World War Z

The zombies are the coolest ever brad pitt is amazing the movies is scary and epic and it scared me threw the movie too and it should be at the number 1 spot

This one is the most realistic one, like what would happen to the world if zombies really exist? This movie answer that question

Beast of a movie 10/10 but I hate brad pitt's wife she is such a cow and clutchy

It was the best zombie movie but I can't believe this is under REC.

This movie isn't even about zombies! Those are Vampires, that's why they only come out at night how stupid are the 0.9% that voted for this movie seriously!

14The Return of the Living Dead

Is it me or is this a comedy. Anyway, these zombies look like those in Michael Jackson's Thriller video. Brains, BRAINS! - aeromaxx777

Mostly overlooked because of the remake made quickly by Hollywood. Still not even close to the original Spanish version. Quite scary and a twist ending that is terrifying.

Good Spanish movie about zombies

17Dead Alive

Peter Jackon's hilarious gore-fest which is so over the top and imaginitive is a riot of a horror/comedy with Shaun of The Dead-esque moments and some scenes not for the squeamish. -

20Land of the Dead

George Romero's return to the genre he created after a gap of nearly 20 years is a landmark one. The zombies are faster, smarter and the characters are bigger and louder. Thankfully the trademark gore is intact and the storyline is the atypical Romero social commentary, reflecting on the events going on around the world at that time. -

I can't stop watching it. It is one of a few zombie movies with a dash of adrenaline. - aeromaxx777
