  • I love me some zombie movies! Going to be great fun checking out the ones I haven't seen. Why 13?

  • Cool. Which ones haven't you seen?

    Why 13? Why not? ;-) I don't know, really. Tired of the old Top 10 or 20, I guess. Plus, I've always liked the number 13.

  • lol - No problem! I was just wondering because you had so many in Honorable Mentions. I know zombies seem to be over saturated in media right now, but I don't think there is every enough discussion regarding zombie films. I'm going to have to check out The Beyond pronto, because it's so high on your list and I've never heard of it so I'm quite intrigued.

  • I'm only noticing now that you have Top 13 for all your lists... please regard my initial question as redundant now.

  • You're in for a treat with The Beyond. It's a great spectacle of surrealism and intense gore. Though it has zombies, I can't really consider it a zombie movie myself, but I love it.

    Liking this list, Trondsen—although for me, Dellamorte Dellamore would be much, much higher on the list. ;) Number two, right after Braindead, in fact. Favorite zombie movies by a long shot.

    I've never seen Bio-Zombie, so I suppose I'd better get on that.

  • Nice list. Dawn of the Dead is way too high, though ;)

  • I ordered The Beyond on Blu-ray from the UK... watched it... loved it.

  • Good to hear, DuLac! I haven't picked up the Blu-ray yet, but I want to. I assume the transfer is good?

  • I'm not used to rating PQ quality, but I found it was surprisingly good. I'm used to getting low budget martial arts or horror films on Blu where the transfer is barely better then DVD, but I'd have to say this is one of the better ones really.

  • Just did my own top 20 and am shocked to see I have only watched two of your top 13 (Return of the Living Dead & Shaun of the Dead).

  • You've been missing out! But now you know where to start. ;-)
