George Romero is for me the master of all things zombie but you cant very well do a Best Zombie films list and not include Lucio Fulci. It comes as no surprise that you all voted his film ZOMBIE to #9 on the list. This Italian film is one of the first zombie films I saw after Night of the Living Dead and is still one of the best of all time.
#8) 28 Days Later:
Right about now all you die hard genre fans are having a brain aneurism. The infected in 28 Days Later are not zombies you are all screaming at your monitor. They are infected, they did not fall down and die and get back up. All correct! That said they are very much in a ‘zombie like’ state in the sense of the voodoo definition and the film is easily one of the better stories of ‘the infected’ of the last few years and for that reason I allowed it.
#7) Night of the Living Dead ’90:
I am still not sure which film I love more. I loved Romero’s original black and white film that was packed full of terror and intensity but the 1990 remake which was directed by Tom Savini just felt more polished and complete to me. I dont know why but most times I would rather watch Tom Savini’s version which George Romero produced but all things considered Romero’s is better only because it came first.
Zombieland is the second funniest zombie comedy ever made after Shaun of the Dead. Quirky, and gruesome it succeeded on its tongue in cheek humour, great casting and of course its 32 Rules of Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse. If you love horror comedies and have not seen Zombieland yet you need to.
#5) Return of the Living Dead:
For me Shaun of the Dead is the funniest zombie comedy every made, Zombieland is second and the b-movie teen comedy Return of The Living Dead is third. This film is a shining example of everything that can make a b-movie great. Add to that it features one of the sexiest horror scenes ever with the stunning Linnea Quigley.
