My Top 50 Zombie/Infection Movies

Since i've done a list for Vampires and Werewolves, it seemed only right to round it off with one for Zombies. This is a list of my personal top 50 films of all time featuring the undead or infected in some form. As before, the order could change, though this is generally the order i stick to. I understand not everyone is going to agree with my ratings, so do feel free to share your own.

As always, reccomendations are more than welcome. If there are any you know of that i haven't got, but you believe should be here, let me know.
(List view shows my rating for each, as well as a link to those i've reviewed to date.)

  • Thanks Claire! I tried to include some lesser well-known ones as well as the obvious choices!

  • Dawn of the Dead is definitely the best.

  • It is indeed, EJ.

  • Nice to see the 1990 NOLTD on there. It's not as good as the original, but it's an excellent remake.

    How about a Top Slashers list?

  • Thanks Derrick! Yes, as far as remakes go it's one of the better ones. The only thing i didn't like is how they changed the ending, Romero's one was more powerful.
    Ask and you shall receive, i'll get one up soon!

  • Saw "ParaNorman" last night. If I were to do a top Zombies list, it would definitely deserve a place.

    Cool list, by the way!

  • Cheers Travis! I haven't yet seen ParaNorman, but have heard good things and will try to see it when it's out in a cinema near me.

  • Give Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (aka Let Sleeping Corpses Lie) a go.

  • Hi Hollie, thanks for the recommendation. I've seen it before, but ages back. I'll definitley give it a rewatch soon, as it'll likely find a place on this list somewhere.

  • @Josh They were clearly trying to redeem the Barbara character in the 1990 remake, so she gets to be the one who shoots a survivor. And in the end, I can see the attempt to show us that humans are just as much monsters the zombies. You're right that it doesn't come off as well, though. That message is better told with the biker gang in DAWN and the soldiers in DAY.

  • @Derrick Oh yes, i agree with that. At least they still maintained the message in some form. George Romero was always big on the social commentary in his early films, which is one of the things that elevates them above the competition.

Please to comment.
