Like the living dead crawling from their graves, the zombie movie cannot be stopped. This year alone we’ve had ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ and, shortly, ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’, a sequel to Ruben Fleischer’s undead action-comedy.
Still, while the zombies might get a bit faster or smarter, the genre’s gory MO stays broadly the same: the dead rise or the apocalypse is brought on by a virus that turns humans into flesh-munching monsters, they attack the living and bloody, brain-eating mayhem ensues. Some filmmakers have used the genre for political or cultural satire; others, however, just like the potential for extreme gore. Whatever your taste, we’ve put together a list of the best zombie movies of all time.
