Top Ten Must-Watch Zombie Films


1. Dead and Buried


This film was released in 1981 and directed by Gary Sherman. It has a story by Jeff Miller and Alex Stern, and was written by Ronald Shusett and Dan O’Bannon. Actually heard about this from watching Guillermo Del Toro’s commentary for the trailer over on Trailers From Hell. It was good, surprised me.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly movies podcast, Adventures in Movies!

2. Cemetery Man (AKA Dellamorte Dellamore)

Cemetery Man was released in 1994, and directed by Michele Soavi. The script was written by Gianni Romoli, based off of a novel by Tiziano Sclavi. Also, it has Anna Falchi in it.


3. Deadgirl[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]


Deadgirl is Australian, about a zombie girl, and what some horny teenage boys do with her. It was released in 2008, directed by Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel, written by Trent Haaga. Twas gnarly.


4. Re-Animator[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]


Just go watch Re-Animator[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360] right now.

Nothing stated could be better than experiencing the madness first hand.


5. Brain Dead (AKA Dead Alive)


Peter Jackson at his (very) bloody finest. “I kick ass for the Lord!”


6. Dance of the Dead

Get down with ya bad self. No, seriously, this movie is — dare I say, cute, along with its requisite zombie action. Not the same zombie “action” as in Deadgirl mind you… oops, perverted spoiler.


7. Dawn of the Dead[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360] (1978)

Romero will eat your face.


8. Shaun of the Dead[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]


“When the dead walk the earth, a hero rises… from his sofa!” How could I resist putting this onto my top ten list of zombie pictures?


9. The Serpent and the Rainbow[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]

Wes Craven film about real life zombies from Haiti. Terrifying.


10. Fido[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZmlEh34unM&w=480&h=360]


Carrie Ann Moss, set in the fifties, pet zombies. Another cute zombie movie.

Honorable mentions that didn’t make the top ten list are…

Every other Romero film with zombies, particularly Diary of the Dead. Diary has personal significance, as I went on my first date with my beautiful, wonderful, and lovely girlfriend to see it. So, hey… it’s a good date movie. Added bonus.

Dead Snow for the hilarious visual of Nazi zombies.

Zombieland for having meta rules, even though Scream basically started that. Would add 28 Days Later, but those people are infected with a virus, so they aren’t technically zombies. Enjoyed the Dawn of the Dead remake, but didn’t feel it deserved to be in the top ten.

Agree? Disagree? Did I miss any? Sound off in the comments.
