The Top 5 Zombie Movies

One of the greatest horror movies to come out of Spain, this movie shocked audiences with it’s gritty realism. A viral outbreak in an apartment block leads to a quarantine. Also inspired an English remake (direct copy) and a Spanish and English language sequal.
4. Dead Alive (Brain Dead)
The movie that Peter Jackson self-funded and directed on weekends. Hugely influential and insanely witty and clever.
3. Shaun of the Dead
Edgar Wright’s masterpiece and the movie that propelled Simon Pegg to super-stardom, now a cult hit the world over. Not only is it a hilarious movie, it’s also a damn good Zombie flick.
2. Zombi 2 (Zombie)
One of the most influential Zombie movies, almost beats the Zombie master, George. A. Romero. Watch out for Zombie vs Shark fight. Epic.
1. Dawn of the Dead
‘Night of the Living Dead’ was the beginning. ‘Dawn of the Dead’ was the real thing. This has to be the quintessential Zombie movie, and has inspired more horror movies than one would care to think about. If you haven’t seen it, you know nothing about Zombies.
What are your top Zombie movies?
