SO... What is it? There are a lot of zombie films out there and because zombies have recently become popular in pop-culture more are coming out everyday, but which ones are the best?

Well, since Wif has already chosen the only Zombie film I'd ever watch a second time unironically, I'm obliged to resort to 1986's Zombie Nightmare. It 'stars' Canadian bodybuilder Jon Mikl Thor, Batman's Adam West, and Tia Carrera from Wayne's World, and boasts a soundtrack of terrible 80s metal by Virgin Steele, Knighthawk and Fist.

Needless to say, it's quite, quite terrible, but made hilarious by MST3K.

I know (or at least I'm told by zombie nerds) that 28 Days Later is not a zombie film, but it kinda is and it's probably my favourite of a genre that kinda annoys me.

Part of it is down to my Cillian Murphy man-crush, part of it is down to the Danny Boyle direction, part of it is John Murphy's soundtrack, part of it is the setting and part of it is the opening scenes and the scene in the rain towards the end.



28 Weeks Later, while not as good, was definitely decent in parts.

This one has topped my list of favorite Zed action flicks of late. I never read the book (or even knew it was derived from the book) so I had no preconceived notions or prior basis on which to become disappointed. Other than the airplane crash scene, I thoroughly enjoyed the premise. But on the lighthearted comedy side of the undead, I'd have to go with Shaun of the Dead hands down.

Now when it comes to favorite Zed games, I have my own geeklist for that: Better ZED than Dead! or my top 10 Zombie games

My recommendation is for [Rec] (original Spanish version, not the remake Quarantine). I don't generally like zombies. I don't understand why they became such a thing. To me they're not scary, and scary is a big part of what I want out of horror. I also don't like how a lot of zombie media focuses on how awful the people are.

However, my husband and I have made a tradition of watching horror movies, shows, and anime every year during October (well, it's spread to all of Fall, really) and have included zombie movies. [Rec] was surprisingly good for being both a zombie and handcam movie. The atmosphere and development of the situation were good, which made the zombies scarier, and while there were awful people involved, it didn't feel like the movie was just about them being awful.

I've seen the sequels, and I really wouldn't recommend them. Zombie fans might disagree, though.

I gotta go with the remake of "Dawn of the Dead" (2004). This was the zed movie that really got me into the genre. Also, this is the first one I remember where the zombies are fast. Really really fast. Not so much the shambling zombies, these will chase your ass down.

I had taken a bunch of friends to see it for my second time. My best friend told me after he kept having zombie dreams (or nightmares?) for about 2 weeks after.

I wouldn't even say that I'm a zombie movie fan per say, but there's something about Day of the Dead that I just enjoy so much. It's got a dose of 1980s cheese that may make it tough for some to watch, but I love how the film just drops you in the middle of the action right from the beginning and how the few remaining military men are just as much a threat as the zombies.

And who doesn't love Bub! zombie

Oh, and shambling zombies all the way! I never could get into those movies where the zombies move super fast...

Thanks to Jim for mentioning it, Return of the Living Dead belongs on this list. It took the zombie film genre and turned it on its ear and raised the stakes. It started the popular trend of zombies as brain-eaters and made them virtually indestructible by discarding the notion that a shot to the head stops them.

It was funny, scary and was a love letter to earlier zombie films while simultaneously forging an identity of its own. It was a gruesome and glorious celebration of zombie-excess.

Unfortunately, its sequels were all pretty bad.
