Since I love gore and head explosions, I thought I’d make a list of the best zombie movies ever to be produced. Since many people overlook the films in this list, you may be shocked.
10. Re-Animator (1985) – Directed by John Carpenter – Though this movie was “gross, violent beyond belief, and extremely graphic,” it was still awesome. From John Carpenter (Them!, Halloween series) comes a very dark twist on Zombie horror.
9. Army of Darkness (Evil Dead 3) (1993) – Directed by Sam Raimi – Evil Dead was always a cult classic, from the year it started in theaters to now. And though Sam Raimi ruined Spiderman forever, I am willing to put this movie up here for its awesomeness.
8. Zombieland (2009) – Directed by Ruben Fleischer – This Woody Harrelson flick shows why he is still a BAMF. With very funny scripting and good directing, along with the awesomest cameo ever, this film is a great.
7. Quarantine (2008) – Directed by John Erick Dowdle – A good re-do of the original “REC.”, a Latino film, in which the end is so easy to guess, but the journey there is epic, violent, and all together hilarious. This movie wasn’t really meant to be a comedy, but it turned out to be one more than a horror film.
6. Dawn of the Dead (2004) – Directed by Zack Snyder – Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) directed this zombie movie, which is one of the goriest and most awesomely ended in the history of film.
5. Dead Alive (1992) – Directed by Peter Jackson – A Decade before LOTR, Peter Jackson made this, a brilliant zombie movie with many turns (and not so much twists), solidifying his stature as a director.
4. Diary of the Dead (2007) – Directed by George A. Romero – A great first person with (spoiler) an ending that didn’t end with everyone dying and the camera being found! Finally, a film that you felt scared with, and yet you wanted to see more and more gore, which is what Romero gave.
3. Shaun of the Dead (2004) – Directed by Edgar Wright – One of the funniest comedies ever, Shaun of the Dead added top class humor and brilliant dramatic sequences in its dazzling cinematic rollout. From Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz), I expected nothing less.
2. Planet Terror (2007) – Directed by Robert Rodriguez – The awesomer film in the Grindhouse collection, Planet Terror dominated everything it set out to do by putting an all star cast into the film, and by having a great script and great direction from Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, Once Upon a Time in Mexico).
1. 28 Days Later (2002) – Directed by Danny Boyle – The Best zombie film ever, and it was made by one of the best directors ever, Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, Sunshine). This film is very interesting in the way the disease effects society and makes the audience genuinely fear for the characters.
