Best Zombie Movies Of All Time

Tuesday, March 8 by Lizz Shepherd

The best zombie movies of all time are subjective, of course. Some zombie fans prefer humorous zombies while others prefer a lot of gore. Still, others consider the best zombie movies to be the ones that portray the situation as accurately and believably as possible. 

  1. "Zombieland": Yes, it is a big production and not as home-grown as a lot of zombie movies, but there is no way to beat Woody Harrelson riding a roller coaster and picking off zombies with a rifle as he rides. The bar was set high by this 2009 movie that lays down precise rules for surviving a country overrun by zombies.
  2. "Evil Dead 2": A classic among zombie movies, "Evil Dead 2" has a famous disembodied hand sequence that is worth its price alone. The movie is the second installment of a classic three-zombie-movie franchise.
  3. "Shaun of the Dead": For zombie humor, this is one of the best. It is odd, a bit low budget and does not make much sense; precisely the ingredients for the best zombie movies. This British movie was released in 2004 and is a commentary of the zombie-like state that people allow themselves to fall into during their normal routines.
  4. "Fido": "Fido" has a truly inventive take on the zombie genre, combining it with a "Leave It to Beaver" vibe. The dynamic between a status-conscious nuclear family and its zombie domestic servant is an eye-opening commentary on the role of parents and their relationships with each other. 
  5. "Night of the Living Dead": A must see for any zombie fan, the original 1968 version of "Night of the Living Dead" is without question one of the best zombie movies ever. The 1990 remake is also a passable zombie flick. If you are into survival amongst the living dead, this one is one of the most important in the genre to see. It may just give you new ideas for keeping the zombies away.
