Best Zombie Movies of All Time?

Zombie movies claim a significant position in the horror genre. The flavor does not fall short of comic, romance, massive action, while still maintaining a thrilling touch. Zombie movies stand out for their fascinating makeover and seamless zombie flick. Here is a captivating list of the best zombie films of all time.

The Evil Dead (1981)The Evil Dead

The most outstanding zombie movies can never be complete without including The Evil Dead produced by Sam Raimi and friends. It portrays disgusting scenes that will give you nightmares, awakening your nerves. It is a fight against supernaturals and features endless impossibilities.

As experimental as teenagers would be, they engage in reading a book titled Necronomicon, not knowing it has powers to restore life to the dead.  Their dumb actions get them into a horrific expedition of trying to seal the evils they have brought to the earth while still fighting to remain alive.

28 Days Later

Cillian Murphy stays in what looks like a coma for days as a surgery effect. The streets are empty upon waking up, and he later realizes that a virus outbreak has turned people into zombies. With only a few survivors left, it’s a struggle to remain an average human.

But Murphy is not a good survivor, and having spent the first month of the apocalypse in a coma makes him more confused. However, he is the captain steering the world into post-apocalypse. It is a “fish out of water” situation that makes you glued to your screen.

Train to BusanTrain to Busan

This South Korean Zombie apocalypse features passengers on a train trying to fight for their lives as they also figure out a safe station to stop. Contrary to many horror movies where zombies move slowly, Train to Busan depicts fast blood-thirsty maniacs. While traveling upcountry by train, a father and daughter are caught up in the middle of a zombie uprising environment.  It happens that one of the passengers is infected with a disease that turns one to crave for blood. Eventually, a large number of passengers are infected.

Among the passengers, few people turn out to blame themselves as it downs on them that the accidental release of the virus was directly proportional to their carelessness. The main character tries to make his daughter believe the whole scenario is a dream for a better explanation. The scenes are bloody, accompanied by the suspense that will leave you tense all through.

Little Monsters

No… not the Fred Savage one… this one. The academy award-winning Lupita Nyong’o and several young actors are the perfect blends in this zombie movie. While taking the kindergarteners for a fun trip, the fun turns out sour as a zombie outbreak occurs. She has to keep the kids safe while still trying to make them believe zombies are not real. The situation gets bloodier, and there is army intervention.

Final Thoughts

They rage, thirst for blood, come to every hideout; zombies in their diverse and scary forms have thrilled the viewers since the beginning of zombie movie production. Like all other fictional setups, zombies are metaphors. The great zombie movies are here to entertain, to arouse the scary feeling in the viewer—zombie movies, a unique form of recreation.


I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
