Top 10 Best Zombie Movies

Top movies of any genre that involves the living dead/zombies.
The Top Ten
1 Shaun of the Dead

How can somebody put this movie, zombieland and 28 days above real zombie movies and why isn't day of the dead up here in the top 5. What is the problem with you people, many changes many changes.

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.

Finally I found this movie on a list *sighs in relief*. There is no way that this is not the best ever. It is insanely funny and it throws in some scares too.

Absolutely brilliant and funny movie that pays homage to Romero's classic movies and starts a fantastic trilogy (the Cornetto trilogy). You've got red on you!

2 Zombieland

Still one of my favourite movies of all time. Woody Harrelson is such a legend and his acting in this is just awesome! This movie is the perfect mix of horror and comedy with its classic one-liners, lovable characters and action-filled plot.
Something else that makes this a truly great zombie movie is the fact that the zombies are actually called zombies. They're not walkers or flesh eaters, they're just zombies. It's so straight forward, yet it just works.
Lets not forget this movie's awesome intro. You know Zombieland has changed your life when you can't hear Metallica without thinking of flesh eating zombies. And, lets face it, this movie taught us all how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Follow Columbus' rules and your sure to live a long life.
So buckle your seatbelts! It's time to nut up or shut up because this movie needs to be number one!

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!

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!

Perfect mix of killing, humor, awesome zombie killing music (Metalica-For whom the bell tolls) at the beginning, and plot. I just love how at the end the little girl had terrible aim trying to shoot the button to stop one of the rides at PacificPlayLand.

3 28 Days Later

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.

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.

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?!

It's not that I dislike Shaun of the Dead, or Zombieland... But those are more of horror/comedies set in a zombie apocalypse. Meanwhile this movie is just straight up awesome.

4 Dawn of the Dead (2004)

I really hated this movie and I don't think it deserved the praise it gets. "Superb Characters"? Yeah, right. Most of the characters were just stereotypes, and some were really negative and offensive stereotypes like the creepy old gay man and the promiscuous blonde who doesn't do anything but complain and show her breasts on camera. The only thing that was good about this movie was the special effects for the gore and the zombies, but the story and characters were all very weak in my opinion.

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.

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.

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

5 Dawn 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.

The Best by far! Shaun of the dead and Zombieland being at the top of this list shows who's looking horror movies right now... A movie (particulary in horror) doesn't need to be funny to be good... I really enjoy Shaun (and Bill Murray) but at the top of Zombie movies is a big joke...!
Day of the dead is pretty good too! And I like Big daddy from land!

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.

I am SHOCKED that this isn't nr1! I mean it's ROMERO! Call of Duty makes him as a boss in BlackOps He is the greatest zombie movie director ever and this is definitely his best movie I mean "Shawn of the Dead"? REALLY?! It really lacks funny jokes and as a zombie movie it lacks even more cool moments

6 Night of the Living Dead (1968)

NOTLD introduced us to the zombies of what is seen as human innocence-children. Karen Cooper was shown to transform so well, that I bet any parent would expect to find their daughter in the morning feasting on the family pet or even their sibling. Best movie zombie, thanks to her, best zombie movie ever (for zombie lovers). thanks Kyra Schon!

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 is the classic Romero movie that started the zombie genre. How is this not higher on the list?! It should be at least no.2 (Because Shaun of the Dead is also a great movie). They're Coming to get you Barbara!

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

7 World War Z

This movie is superior to every zombie movie. It has action, a realistic plot and an epic and a thrilling story. Moreover Brad Pitt's smartness and cool and great presence of mind added to the taste of this film.

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

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

8 I Am Legend

They are zombies. Here's my explanation: #1 some zombies also burn in sunlight. #2 there are also fast zombies. #3 there are also zombie dogs.
Now I will talk about the movie: I really like the beginning where it shows his every day life. The first jumpscare was amazing, very tragic at the middle and the end. I only seen it once, and it is already one of my favorite movies.

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!

Wouldn't really call the Darkseekers zombies, more like infected vampires who are hunting down Dr. Neville.

Technically the're vampires, but it's still an amazing movie. Also the book is really good too.

9 The Evil Dead

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

10 Resident Evil

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.

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

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

Best movie ever bit sad that everyone but alice dies sorry if I am spoiling it 4 u

The Contenders
11 28 Weeks Later

Britain really knows how to make a zombie movie.

Awesome but scary

12 The 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!

13 Evil Dead 2
14 Night of the Living Dead (1990)
15 [REC]

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.

16 Army of Darkness

Funniest movie so far.

17 Train to Busan

Fantastic zombie movie that is so underrated. This should definitely be higher on the list. Such a sad ending. If you haven't seen it, give this movie a try!

Best zombie movie ever. Too bad it's not really well known because it is Korean.

The best. Great acting, great plot. Sad and quite overwhelming.

I saw this at target, thought it looked cool, bought it for 17 bucks.
Way worth it

18 Land 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.

19 Warm Bodies

No matter how people defend this movie, I think it's basically a zombie version of Twilight. Now we're going to have teen girls and possibly boys who think zombies are sexy too and they're going to start making movies and T.V. shows about good-looking zombies for sex appeal (I think they've already started with that ridiculous show iZombie). Oh what crazy times we live in now...

Come one, zombie romance? This isn't the best zombie movie (that title is reserved for Shaun of thte Dead) but it was great!

20 Pet Sematary
21 ParaNorman
22 Doom

Alien bites human, human becomes zombie, zombie becomes demon spawn, demon spawn becomes hell knight... CREEPY!

Great, but I'd rather play the game.

23 Cooties
24 Dead 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.

25 Zombi 2

This was a very scary zombie movie that had great gore effects and zombie make-up for an old movie that came out in 1979. The zombies in this movie really did look like they were walking corpses and some even had worms and maggots crawling out their faces which was very disturbing. There were also some really cool scenes like one where an underwater zombie was fighting a a real shark and had its arm bitten off. For those who don't know this movie is called "Zombi 2" in Italy because it was released as the unofficial sequel to George. A. Romero's "Dawn of the Dead", but in the U.S. the movie is simply called "Zombie".
