Audrey Fox at /Film created her list of The 20 Best Zombie Movies Of All Time. Using just her list here are my top five (in alpha order):
28 days later: Purists will argue that this isn’t a true zombie movie. Instead of arguing, I’d just watch it again!
Dawn of the Dead (2004): Has one of the best opening scenes of any zombie movie (except for World War Z) and I love that Fox acknowledges that in her article!
Night of the Living Dead: The original by George Romero that kickstarted the zombie renaissance.
Overlord: Zombies and WW2 mash-up. Another that some will argue isn’t a true zombie movie. Again, I say, “Rewatch instead of arguing.”
Train to Busan: A modern classic. More people should see this film!
Some films on her list that didn’t make mine but are good: Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland and The Dead Don’t Die. They’re funny and worth a view, but when the dead start to rise, I prefer scary to funny. (I still want to see Little Monsters!)
I haven’t seen Blood Quantum but want to.
