You will never guess what IMDB thinks are the 10 best zombie movies of all time. IMDB has released another one of their top lists and this one is by Keith Sim and it looks at the 10 most popular zombie movies based off the ratings of the users of IMDB.
It is always fascinating to see how mainstream movie fans look at our genre since we all know how hardcore our community is and how often mainstream movie goers don’t understand our genre or our passion for it.
I have to admit that for the most part IMDB’s Best Zombie Movies list is a pretty solid list even if its not how I see things. There is however two huge glaring WTF’s on the list in my humble opinion. See if you can figure out what it is. The list is as follows;
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Army of Darkness (1992)
The Crow (1994)
28 Days Later (2002)
Dead Alive (1992)
All good films on that Top 10 but I would not include The Crow. People give me crap for calling 28 Days later a zombie movie, but the Crow? The other one that has me scratching my head is Army of Darkness. Army is one of the greatest horror films of all time and appears on almost every top list we do of relevance but a Zombie films top list? Interesting.
To compare that list to our own we recently asked our readers what they thought the best zombie movies were and the 13 most common answer ( not in order ) were;
Dawn of the Dead 1978
Day of the Dead
28 Days Later
Shaun of the Dead
Return of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead [ 2004 ]
Night of the Living Dead 68
Night of the Living Dead Remake
What do you think of how the IMDB users see things in comparison to how our readers see things? Who got it right? Did we both get it wrong?
