Best Zombie Movies List


Zombie Horror Movies
 
Part I

________________________________________________________________________

TOO SCARY 2 WATCH now presents a list of Zombie horror films (arranged by year) that we believe may be worth checking out if you have a fascination with the walking dead like we do. The list will continue to be updated as we continue to find more zombie movies that we feel are worthy of being added. In saying that, we've done our best to create a versatile list consisting of all types of zombie flicks ...



Good zombie movies, popular zombie movies, campy zombie movies, underrated zombie movies, remakes and more ... 

It can be argued whether some of the movies on the list are actually zombie movies (some movies have actual zombies, while others have zombie-like creatures or humans with zombie-like symptoms ) ... nevertheless, we've provided a variety of epidemic horror films some that definitely fit the zombie criteria, along with others that maybe open for interpretation.
________________________________________________________________________
Disclaimer

Some of the movies on the list, in our opinion, aren't necessarily good zombie movies, but were chosen to be included for a variety of different reasons.

Thanks and enjoy!

Made in just 11 days back in 1932, with a $50,000 budget and sets left standing from Universal's Dracula and Frankenstein, this film remains a horror classic. Keeping dialogue to a minimum, cameraman Arthur Martinelli cuts loose on this odd fairy tale about a newlywed couple menaced by zombies. Avoiding the stagy static feel that pervades many other early talkies, White Zombie shows its story, rather than tells it.
