With the release of Snyder’s recent project, “Army of the Dead,” the zombie movie season is back. It can’t be denied that a lot of people love zombie movies no matter how good those chewing guts, hungry for our blood monsters look, the adrenaline rush we feel when the hero shoots the bullet in the air. head of a zombie and explode is just unmatched.
It’s always fascinating how a handful of people will defeat an army of zombies and make it out alive, this journey is the soul of any zombie movie. Since zombies are not our usual ghosts, they don’t scare us like conventional ghosts, they are much more convenient and will literally eat you alive. There have been a lot of movies that take us on this zombie outbreak survival journey, but here are my top picks:
World War II (2013)
Directed by Marc Forster and based on a novel of the same name, this movie has one of the coolest cast members set consisting of Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale, Matthew Fox, David Morse, Peter Capaldi And so on . With a gripping storyline and incredibly choreographed action sequences, this movie is a must-have for any zombie face.
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Snyder does have a certain fascination with zombies and we’re not complaining about that; he’s an intelligent director who knows how to make a good zombie thriller. This is another of his masterpieces and was actually his first feature film. While it has the same formula for a zombie outbreak, followed by a survival journey, that’s what we’d expect from a zombie movie. This movie is the GO of all zombie movies. Go watch it now if you haven’t.
Train to Busan (2016)
This Korean movie really shows that Koreans love zombie thrillers. We leave by train with our protagonists to Busan and only a few minutes after the start of the film, we witness an epidemic of zombies. It’s a fight to survive and reach a safer destination. The best part about this movie is the subplots and the character arcs. In addition, this little girl will make you fall for her kindness.
Land of Zombies (2009)
Zombies and comedy in one movie? We are there for that ! The film is set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-stricken United States, and stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin. It’s a laughing riot with good action sequences. It’s a straightforward movie, which won’t stress your brain much, so don’t hold onto those expectations, but it’s definitely a good weekend watch.
Go Goa Party (2013)
This is the only Indian take from a zombie movie that I have seen and totally loved. It’s a ‘zom-com’, with characters that are relatable as hell and dialogues that will stay with you even after the movie ends. The highlight of the film is the pseudo Russian mafia character Saif Ali Khan and his music, remember âBabaji ki bootiâ?
