With #Zombies trending, I wanted to put together a list of my favorite Zombie movies. Any other movies that should have made this zombie fan's list? Please let me know.
28 Days Later (2002) - This movie shows the most realistic depiction of what a zombie outbreak would be. Where Romero's Dawn of the Dead is commentary about the dangers of consumerism, 28 Days Later puts the fear of disease at the forefront of minds.
Shaun of the Dead (2004) - Took the genre and effectively parodied it so that everyone could enjoy. You don't have to like zombies to enjoy the humor.
Dawn of the Dead (2004) - You may wonder why this is higher on my list than George A. Romero's classic, but if you watch the first 10 min, you'll know why.
[Rec] (2007) - They remade the original into Quarantine the next year, but this version was way better. The first person perspective along with the tight corridors of the building make this an absolutely terrifying experience. There is a clever twist at the end which changes the whole thing.
Zombieland (2009) - Bill Murray's cameo is what takes this zombie romp to the next level and who can deny The Zombie Kill of the Week?
Army of Darkness (1992) - While this is less about the zombie and more about the unlikely protagonist Ash, the one liners and total campiness of the entire production helps put it on the list.
28 Weeks Later (2007) - The sequel to 28 Days later is like Aliens to Alien. More action and less scary, but there are memorable scenes none the less. The courtyard scene where infected and non infected are being shot leaves an impression. Bonus, its Jeremy Renner before he was famous.
The Crazies (2010) Less apocalyptic than most zombie movies, but the small town setting sets it apart and has a good amount of scares.
Slither (2006) James Gunn's movie puts the fun into all out gross moments. Nathan Fillion gives a solid performance as the Sheriff trying to keep it all together.
