Top 10 Zombie Movies

The top 10 best Zombie movies is a great list of great zombie attack movies that must be seen. Every horror fan should see these movies as soon as they can. Each of these movies breathes new life into the zombie film genre. Included in our top 10 are Army of Darkness, Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, World War Z, 28 Days Later..., Resident Evil, Dawn of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead and Day of the Dead.

Our zombie movie list is more than just a movie listing of zombies running rabid, the zombies have to include a zombie conflict or a series of zombie attacks making the movie centered around the conflict of the living against the living dead.

Zombie movies are a touchy subject because some may think that the zombie type in the horror film is not a typical "ZOMBIE". Zombies are typically walking creatures that may/may not be dead hunting humans for their brains or internal organs. Let's not be too picky here but enjoy the list. The list will be updated frequently with more title as reviews are added to the database. New zombie movies will most likely have a 100% score but very few total votes. As horror fans vote, the new movie titles will average to their real score. No complaints that one movie is at the top of the list but has 2 total votes. Help rate it and you will help the overall Top 10 list.

If we left out a zombie movie that you think should be here, please request us to add the movie title to the top list in our comments below. Since the list is heavily user generated, this is what the horror fans online rated the best. Please take your time and vote your favorite zombie movie up in our Top 10 Zombie Movies.

    Day of the Dead

    Day of the Dead is the third installment in George A. Romero's Living Dead Trilogy. The first two being the Classics: Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. Moving away from the comic book like almost dark comedy-ish atmosphere, Day of the Dead is by far the darkest and goriest in the trilogy (despite Night of the Living Dead's haunting ending). Day of the Dead pretty much picks up where Dawn left off. The zombies are still taking over the world, and people are still running. A group of researchers and a few military men have taken shelter…

    Return of the Living Dead

    The Return of the Living Dead (1985) is an American zombie comedy horror movie that is considered a classic in my books. Director Dan O'Bannon (Alien (1979), Total Recall (2012), Total Recall (1990), Aliens (1986)) did a marvelous job directing this zombie eating brain movie. The movie contains sexual nude content, violence, zombies that love brains, suspense, bad language, terrifying scenes and an awesome soundtrack. The Return of the Living Dead is about three men and a group of teenagers trying to survive with the zombies roaming around. The zombies are heading toward a small town that is not expecting…

    Dawn of the Dead

    I liked the remake better than the original. George Romero’s zombie film was perfect for its time, but it is a new age. The Dawn of the Dead remake delivers gruesome blood gushing wounds, explosions and zombies on fire, I love it. The zombie horde takes over a city, and the survivors find shelter in a shopping mall which in fact is the best place to be, it’s secure and has everything you need for day to day life. Dawn of the Dead delivers great action scenes in the first 20 minutes that you’ll need to see all over again.…

    28 Days Later...

    Before 28 Weeks Later (2007) there was 28 Days Later... (2002). 28 Days Later is directed by Danny Boyle, 28 Days Later is simply a fantastic film that puts a new twist on the classic zombie movie. The story is about a man awaking from a coma twenty-eight days after a new virus has wiped out a huge percentage of the general population. Anyone who is infected with the virus and lives seems to become a raging, mindless, homicidal lunatic that tears apart anything moving. Of course, the man meets other survivors, and they begin looking for a way to…

    World War Z

    I love this movie, and it is a must see for everyone. Director, Marc Forster did an incredible job with World War Z. It is full of nonstop action and epic moments. I will definitely see this movie again. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is happy with his married life and two daughters after leaving his job as an investigator for the United Nations. World War Z gave a small introduction to Garry's life before heading to a fast pace action adventure. Garry got reeled back into his old job so that his family can be safe from the zombies. I…

    Night of the Living Dead

    Zombie infestation starts after a satellite crashes back to earth then emits radiation thus bring back the dead as walking dead zombie flesh eaters. Survivors end up retreating to a lonely farmhouse to take shelter against the zombie swarm. Black and white might hold you back from this classic movie along with the low budget, but you will enjoy this one. Not too scary considering the graphics and style of today’s films but the movie still holds its weight. I heard stories growing up of old time horror fans who saw this the same night it came out and were…

    Shaun of the Dead (2004) is a 1h 39-min British horror comedy that was shot in several locations in London, England, UK with an estimated budget of $6.1 million and grossed over $30 million at the box office. Some of the exterior scenes were shot in/around North London including Crouch End, Finsbury Park, Muswell Hill, and East Finchley.

    Army of Darkness

    Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness (1992) is the final entry to the Evil Dead trilogy. The Evil Dead trilogy is another of my all time favorites even though they had an extremely tight budget with each horror movie. This masterpiece is from the director of the Spider-Man franchise Sam Raimi and B-movie king Bruce Campbell plays Ash, the great zombie killing/bashing hero. This one took the cake. I loved Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness' horror mixed with a gothic castlevania setting. The Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness is great to watch anytime... especially excellent when your bored. Army…

    Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead (1978) is a 2h 7-min American independent action-thriller-horror movie that is the second film made of the Living Dead series. Dawn of the Dead does not contain any characters or settings from Night of the Living Dead (1968), but it does pick up from where Night of the Living Dead left off. Zombie horror fans are in for a treat with this sick and twisted movie that will satisfy all your horror needs. Director, editor, and writer George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead (1968), Land of the Dead (2005), The Crazies (2010)) did an…
