With The Walking Dead being the most popular thing on the planet right now, the popularity of the Zombie itself may be at an all-time high. People are fascinated by the idea of a world ruled by the undead, and luckily for them, there are plenty of great movies out there that will more than satisfy that craving... And yes, some of those movies are even better than The Walking Dead. *Depending on your outlook, maybe even most of them are.
For the first 6 movies in the list:
If you're in the mood for a truly quality Zombie flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Return of the Living Dead and the original Dawn of the Dead are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Zombie Sub-Genre, so enjoy them all!
For the remaining:
Below are the rest of our 30 Best Zombie flicks, and of course, a few Honorable Mentions thrown in for good measure. Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks.
The last 6 being "Honorable Mentions".
