Zombie Movies

There's nothing like a bunch of zombies wandering the streets on Halloween night or watching a favorite zombie flick to get in the mood. Below are our favorite thirteen Zombie movies for Halloween viewing.

World War Z
Ex-U.N. investigator Gerry Lane and his family are sitting in what appears to be a typical Philadelphia traffic jam when helicopters began to circle ominously overhead, and an explosion throws the city into panic. In the blink of an eye, the streets are consumed by chaos. When Gerry learns that the catalyst for the turmoil is a highly contagious virus that transforms those who contract it into rampaging maniacs, and that legions of the infected are growing on all continents, he agrees to join his former colleagues in discovering the source of the rampant plague so that his wife and two daughters will be guaranteed safety aboard a UN fleet in the Atlantic Ocean.

Night of the Living Dead
George Romero's low-budget, classic that had great difficulty finding a distributor at the time of its release in 1968, and has since become one of the most influential horror films of all time. Seven people secluded in a Pennsylvania farmhouse face relentless attacks by reanimated corpses seeking to eat their flesh. The group, which includes a married couple and their daughter, a pair of young lovers, and an African-American man, try to keep their sanity as the living dead keep trying to enter the house. Radio news reports tell of the plague taking over the eastern United States, while the ever-decreasing band of survivors rapidly loses ground in the battle to both keep peace with one another and stay alive. (1968)

In this comedy, Columbus and Tallahassee are two of the last survivors of the mad cow disease-fueled zombie plague. These two meet Wichita and Little Rock in a grocery store when the duo stops for Twinkies and the foursome makes plans to go to Hollywood to the Pacific Playland amusement park, affectionately named Zombieland after this invasion. The group uses lights and sounds to attract zombies and weapons to wage war on the seemingly endless zombie invasion. The ultimate goal of the Zombieland attack is to save the United States from being controlled by zombies and to fight for freedom from mad cow disease.

Night of the Living Dead
In this re-make of the original movie, seven people are trapped in an isolated farmhouse and living an unspeakable nightmare. Cannibalistic zombies have been awakened from the dead and are on a relentless killing and eating binge. One of the biggest departures from the original, is that the main female character, Barbara, becomes the strongest of the group.

My wife and I actually saw this in the theater on Halloween night 1990 when it was first released and had a great time.

Cemetery Man
Rupert Everett stars in this Italian horror film as Francesco Dellamorte, a watchman at a cemetery. Being a watchman means being ready with a hatchet as the undead emerge from their graves each night. Funny, smart, and scary all at the same time.

Dawn of the Dead
Superior remake of the 1978 movie by the same name, this movie centers around Ana, a nurse who's husband is attacked in their bedroom and becomes a zombie by a neighboring kid. As she tries to escape, she realizes that the whole town is in a similar state of ghoulishness, until she runs into still-alive cop Kenneth, the levelheaded Michael and Andre, a rebel with a pregnant wife. The group heads for the local mall where they barricade themselves inside. More survivors surface, while in the outside world the zombies go about their day by slowly taking over the planet. Undeterred by the odds against them, the survivors plot, scheme, and enjoy their mall paradise.

Return of the Living Dead
What has certainly before a cult classic, this horror-comedy tells the tale of two employees of a medical supply company who unwittingly releasing several zombies from top secret military containers where they have been kept for many years. The nasty brain-eating creatures are as hungry as ever, and eager to make up for lost time. Soon, the local citizenry are forced to deal with a large-scale zombie epidemic.

Day of the Dead
A small American town has been infected with a deadly virus, and the military is determined to contain the sickness by establishing quarantine. When the situation spirals out of control and the infected residents develop a taste for human flesh, the military and surviving residents must band together to battle an enemy whose goal is not simply to kill, but to consume as well.

Dead Season
When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors, Elvis and Twitter, flee the chaos of America to a remote island, hoping for a chance to start a new life. What they find is unrelenting horror. Beyond the hordes of the flesh-hungry undead, the other people already on the island force the pair into a fight-or-die battle amongst themselves. Armed only with crude weapons, they must descend to savagery and cutthroat tactics just to make it through each day. 2012

Night of the Comet
After a brilliant comet passes overhead, most people die instantly while others who were indirectly exposed to its rays are turned into flesh-eating zombies. Escaping injury, two "valley-girl" sisters team up with other survivors to combat the zombies in this campy sci-fi romp.

Dance of the Dead
A horror-comedy from Sam Raimi's Ghost House Underground. It's up to the dateless nerds at suburban high school to save prom night when the dead rise from the earth to feast on the living.

Shawn of the Dead
Also listed in our Dark Comedies list, Superior remake of the 1978 movie by the same name.

Juan of the Dead
Juan is a slacker trying to reconnect with his daughter, who plans to rejoin her mother in Miami. Lazaro, Juan's friend, is trying to connect with his own son. These two friends from Cuba hatch a plan to launch a zombie extermination service after their native Cuba is overrun by the living dead. As the Cuban government attempts to maintain public order by blaming American, Juan and his group see profits from their zombie killing enterprise, but soon find their own lives at risk.

Interestingly, in the original zombie movie, "Night of the Living Dead", the undead creatures were never called "Zombies", but " Flesh Eating Ghouls".
