Its time for another edition of You Voted. You voted is an on going weekly editorial where we turn to our community and ask you a question relating to the horror genre. We then take the answers and compile them into a Top list aptly named. You Voted!. Last week I asked our over 14,000 Facebook Community members which are your favorite zombie movies which has in turn led to this weeks You Voted: The 15 Best Zombie Films of all Time.
First before we start the list we need to make a very important mention about one man in particular. In our vote one persons name came up over and over again and his was the only name that came up.
If by now you have not guessed George Romero was named in our poll by piles of our community members. We asked what you thought was the best zombie movies and a pile of you simply answered ‘Anything by George Romero’. So since he is clearly not a movie but a film icon he gets an honourable mention at the start of our article and one that is well deserving.
That all said here are the Top 15 films you all voted the Best Zombie movies of All time. Included with each film is a brief overview and a trailer.
#15: La Horde:
A french horror film its about an end of the world battle between gangsters, cops and zombies.
Starring Jeffrey Combs it is the story of a student at a medical college and his girlfriend who become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of the dead with.
#13: Resident Evil
Based loosely on the hit video game it is about a special military unit that fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into zombies after a laboratory accident.
#12) Dawn of the Dead Remake:
A remake of George Romero’s classic zombie film it is directed by Zack Snyder and stars the talented and gorgeous Sarah Polley. A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall.
#11) Dead Alive:
Before Peter Jackson was famous for Lord of the Rings he was doing quirky horror films and this is one of his finest films. Dead alive is about a young man’s mother who is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey. She gets sick and dies, at which time she comes back to life, killing and eating dogs, nurses, friends, and neighbors. Gruesome, funny and over the top its a must see for all zombie film fans.
This Canadian production which stars Bill Connolly and the incredibly hot Carrie-Anne Moss is about as quirky as they get. Timmy Robinson’s best friend in the whole wide world is a six-foot tall rotting zombie named Fido. But when FIDO eats the next-door neighbor, Mom and Dad hit the roof, and Timmy has to go to the ends of the earth to keep Fido a part of the family.
