Top 10 Zombie Films!

So, Creepmas is over! I must say, I didn't do a dandy job at sticking with my commitment with these 13 Days of Creepmas posts and do to that, I apologize! Thanks for those who did enjoy the post I did put out! So with that as a treat, I present to you the TOP 10 Zombie films!

This is a list of top 10 zombie films in my opinion that MUST be seen! Every horror fan....not just horror fan, EVERY film fan should really check out these movies as soon as he or she can! That is because I tried to put together a list of zombie films that are more than zombies running a muck, but a real zombie conflict filled with rabid zombie attacks where the living fight purely against the living dead. Doesn't that sound awesome?

Each movie that I listed have a great gore and kills, but I will not spoil that for you! As always, I rather you check it out yourself and you can be the judge, if you please! Anyhow, just remember while watching these awesome films, who recommended it! ;)

10. 28 Days Later -- 2002

An amazing updated zombie flick that is full of gore and running zombies. Yes, I know some people do not believe in running zombies...but aren't they cool? This film added something spectacular to zombies and indeed added fear to these new breed of zombies!

9. Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things -- 1973

It's a B rated film but should definitely not be swept underneath the rug! This movie involved an ancient ritual and clearly shows WHY you shouldn't do that kinda stuff!

8. Night of the Living Dead -- 1968

The black and white in this film shouldn't stop you from checking out this classic. It even still holds itself up high compared to the movies today.

7. Night of the Living Dead -- 1990

This is Tom Savini's magical, horror-a-tastical remake that was meant to be a tribute to the classic and truly is! Very entertaining and perhaps better than the original!

6. Day of the Dead -- 1985

George Romero did some awesome camera tricks to create the zombie infestation in this classic. This is a great living dead classic that shows how quick and easy zombie infestation can occur and, of course, what happens.

5. Dawn of the Dead -- 1979

Another Romero one and slightly different from many, MANY horror movies. Romero shoots this film a majority of the time in broad daylight or bright areas. It's very rare that a horror director isn't interested in the shadows or darkness. Very awesome that he did that. This film is kinda silly...well at least to me, but then again I laugh at inappropriate moments/things anyway. It focuses on a mall with survivors trapped inside and zombies nearby.

4. Dead Alive -- 1992

If you can honestly stomach gore...this film is the one for you!

3. Zombieland -- 2009

In comedy/horror the world is over run by zombies and there are rules to follow!

2. The Return of the Living Dead -- 1985

An awesome CLASSIC and a must see! "Send more paramedics!"

1. Zombie -- 1979

Lucio Fulci....allows all your gore dreams to come true! Fulci's zombies are oober slow, even slower than Romero's zombies, which isn't a bad thing! As the army of zombies come shuffling all stiff towards you, watch out, you may be creeped out!

Clearly! If you made it through the whole MUST be a zombie fan! Well rock on. I know I missed many, but just let me know what your TOP 10 Zombie Films are!


  1. Great list. But no love for the Dawn of the Dead remake? Glad to see Zombieland and Return of the Living Dead rank so high. Love those movies!

  2. Not dissapointed in this list at all. Seen every movie here except for Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things. Day of the Dead has been my favorite for a long time, and I'm happy to see you included Fulci's Zombie. Great list from someone who knows their stuff :)

  3. Excellent list, Zena. Love it. I have been wanting to check out 'Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things' for a while. You gave me the motivation needed to actually do it.

  4. Brilliant list... but where's Shaun Of The Dead?

  5. @ Monty I was going to put Dawn of the Dead remake because it was awesome buuuuut at a certain point during the film, I get a little bored. :\

    @ Giovanni Thanks! You should check the fim out, it's awesome. Fulci's Zombie HAD to be on the list!

    @ Tyler Thanks! You should check it out, very enjoyable with some cheese!

    @ Maynard Thanks! I wanted to would have been in top 20!

  6. Great list Your Highness! It's always interesting to see what someone's top ten movies in a certain category are. I agree with many of your choices. A few things: While I agree that "28 Days Later" is a great flick, and don't have any problem with it being on the list, I'll bet the makers of the movie would have a problem with it. Remember when it came out and they insisted that it WASN'T supposed to be a zombie movie? I never got that. Also, while I've never considered myself a connoisseur of zombie movies, I've been personally touched by two of your choices: I visited the Monroeville Mall ("Dawn of the Dead") last year, and met the guy who played Bub in "Day of the Dead" at the Rock and Shock show back in October! The only one of these flicks that I haven't seen is "Dead Alive"--will have to add it to the list. And I'm surprised to not see "Shaun of the Dead" on the list too. Have you seen "Shock Waves"? It's the best nazi-zombie movie ever!

  7. Great list. Have you been watching The Walking Dead? I think 28 Days Later took a lot from the graphic novels.

    I think Supernatural used the title "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" for one of their episodes. I wondered where that title came from. Now I know.

  8. I'll never tire of lists.

    My all time favorite is still the B & W night of the living dead. When I overcame my fear of the film in my early teens, I became a horror fan.

    My other favorite is the original dawn of the dead because I would follow a hero dude like Ken Foree into any sort of danger. Put him as the lead in the other films and see what I mean. The '70s seemed like simpler times, except the clothes were awful.

    Jake Weber's pretty cool in the remake.

    28 days was alright coz I dig the Brit setting w/c also makes CHILDREN OF MEN awesome.I just don't dig fast zombies, 'coz they won't be!

    I have most of these in my collection except for Zombie, Children Shouldn't, and Dead Alive (shame on me).

    The thing I love most about zombie horror is how living people make things far worse. There's always a Steve Buschemi (I love Steve) sort of jerk who would toss a monkeywrench in the best laid plans. People are the real monsters. hahaha

    Rock on, all hail the Queen!

  9. Awesome picks. I haven't heard of Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. I'll have to check it out.

    Merry Creepmas, V.

  10. Compliments for choice of Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Thing and master Fulci!

  11. "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" Yeah, that sounds like some good advice. :) Neither should adults! I've never heard of that one, but it looks like some cheesy goofball fun. "Dead Alive" is also new to me. I'm not into gore, so that's not for me. The rest I've seen or am at least familiar with. Good choices!

  12. Thanks Real Queen of Horror! It's interesting to watch the evolution of Horror Movies.

  13. Awesome List, as always! :)

  14. Great list!! Very glad to Zombie is number 1, it's definitely my personal favorite. And thumbs up for Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things!
