Looking for all the zombie movies released in 2018? We’ve got you covered with our full list of major zombie movie releases:
1. Day of the Dead: Bloodline
Release date: January 5, 2018
With : Sophie Skelton, Johnathon Schaech, Jeff Gum
Director: Hector Hernandez Vicens
Day of the Dead: Bloodline is based on the characters created by Zombie King George A. Romero, and it was announced in 2013. We’re not talking about World War Z zombies climbing walls and “doing backflips”, according to producers Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman. The zombie movie hits theaters in early January, giving us some zombie goodness to look forward to early in the year.
Unfortunately, things did not go well for Day of the Dead: Bloodlineand it’s just another new zombie movie that couldn’t quite help but be generic (which is the last thing the genre needs right now).
2. The Cured
Release date: February 23, 2018
With : Ellen Page, Peter Campion, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor
Director: David Freyne
We’ve seen so many zombie stories based on curing disease that it’s hard to even care. The Cured at first, but then you see it’s Ellen Page, and she’s amazing on every front.
The cured feels more like In the flesh the movie, where the disease that turned people into zombies was cured. Now that the former zombies are back in society, they are discriminated against, which causes social problems and leads to militant government interference.
The trailer (above) looks a little more exciting than anything we’ve seen in In the Flesh, so there you have it.
(2018)” description=”Cargo, the zombie movie starring Martin Freeman, is now available on Netflix.”]
Release date: May 18, 2018
With : Martin Freeman, Anthony Hayes, Susie Porter
Director: Ben Hurlant, Yolanda Ramke
Martin Freeman in a post-apocalyptic world? Yes please! But don’t expect it to be overloaded with cool action sequences or anything like that. What we know of Cargo is that it will be published at netflix at some point in 2018, and Daily screen reports that it is June 8.
The story will revolve around an emotional father who is stranded in rural Australia with just 48 hours to find a new home for his baby girl after being infected by a violent plague that has taken over the world. It is based on the 2013 short film.
Apparently, Cargo is going to be a lot scarier than we originally let on. I hope that means we’re in for a real one good 2018 zombie movie. Stay tuned Nerd Much? for our review closer to the film’s release.

4. The Night Eats the World (La Nuit a DeVore le monde)
Release date: July 13, 2018
With : Anders Danielsen Lie, Golshifteh Farahani, Denis Lavant
Director: Dominique Rocher
The night eats the world is a French zombie film set in Paris. After a party, a young man wakes up to find that Paris has been invaded by zombies. According to THR, it’s a “minimalist art-house zombie film that takes place almost entirely inside a Parisian apartment building”. He has a 28 days later vibe, with the same kind of visceral, down-to-earth directing style. Moreover, it has a brilliant name.
5. An accidental zombie (named Ted)
Release date: TBD 2018
With : Naomi Grossman, Yoshua Sudarso, Hemky Madera
An accidental zombie (named Ted), formerly simply titled A zombie named Ted, will follow the story of Ted, a newly created zombie struggling with his new condition. He has the “skin thing” while vacationing in the Caribbean, and an endless hunger for brains. Zombie Ted inherits his grandfather’s fortune, but he must wait until he is dead before collecting. At the same time, he joins a group therapy designed to help patients who suffer from paranormal disorders. It seems incredibly strange.
An accidental zombie (named Ted) had been on our list of upcoming zombie movies for a few years now, but it finally received a straight-to-DVD/streaming release in late 2018. You can actually watch it straight on Amazon Prime Video at present.
6. Anna and the Apocalypse
Director: John McPhail
With : Ella Hunt, Malcolm Cumming, Sarah Swire
Release date: November 30, 2018
Anna and the apocalypse is a ridiculous zombie musical set during a Christmas apocalypse, complete with ugly Christmas sweaters and all the gory zombies you could want under your tree.
