Zombies are great characters to place in a movie, comedies with really scary features. As Halloween is just around the corner, we’ve compiled a list of zombie-based movies for you to immerse yourself in this spooky season!
Zombieland: Double Tap – 2019
While 2009 the land of zombies was a hilarious take on the genre, we think it’s time to start celebrating its equally brilliant sequel.
The film follows Columbus (Jessie Eisenberg) and his eccentric group as they search for a place to stay safe. When Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) decides to leave the quartet for a college student, Columbus, Wichita (Emma Stone) and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) go looking for him; with a rather strange guest accompanying us.
This movie perfectly embodies what was funny about its predecessor and created a whole new situation for laughs. The Zombies are brilliantly done and, despite the humorous overtones, in fact pose a threat to the fantasy quartet.
Train to Busan – 2016
Train to Busan is a great zombie flick to watch with a bowl of popcorn by your side.
The film follows Seok-woo (Gong Yoo) and her daughter as they travel to see her mother on her birthday; However, the trip takes a detour as what was once a celebration turns into a fight for survival as the couple are trapped on the train during a zombie outbreak in South Korea.
The combination of confined spaces and zombie horror is what makes Train to Busan unique; that, and the father-daughter relationship that’s at stake throughout the journey, as the zombies get closer to them.
World War Z – 2013
This is a classic zombie flick that has a brilliant cast, a disturbing portrayal of the living dead, and a great storytelling.
World War Z follows Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) as he tries to protect his family amid the zombie outbreak. When called upon to help find both reasoning and a cure for the disease that infects the world, he must do so with courage and determination.
This movie perfectly portrays a zombie plague and its effects on people and the planet, and has characters you really care about. Gerry’s journey is difficult, as he must find a solution while the walking dead follow suit.
Shaun of the Dead – 2004
Shaun of the Dead is undoubtedly the comedic zombie movie, as loved by fans to this day. He is held in high regard, for very good reason.
Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best friend Ed (Nick Frost) live together in simplicity, but once Shaun’s girlfriend dumps him, he becomes almost inconsolable. What could make it worse? A zombie apocalypse could …
It’s such a fantastic movie, because the dialogue and the physical comedy are to die for… The actors bounce back brilliantly, and the hilarity that follows makes for the perfect zombie comedy.
Dawn of the Dead – 2004
the years 2004 Dawn of the Dead is a nice movie with a lot of undead action; it’s also a remake of the 1978 film of the same name.
Many fans enjoyed the remake of a classic, as Zack Snyder did a brilliant job recreating the ’70s feature film. The film follows a group of survivors who take refuge in a mall to escape the hordes of food eaters. flesh surrounding them.
But the small group must not only fight the undead, but also the problems within the confines of their new team.
28 days later – 2002
28 days later is renowned for being different from other similar films; audiences loved the plot, cast and atmosphere of a weird and desolate London.
After the outbreak grips the UK, survivors must find a way to deal with the plight that has befallen them if they are to survive. Safety is the main concern of the group, and they won’t stop until they find it … they have no choice.
The camera work wasn’t as poised as that of a blockbuster, giving it a more realistic feel as danger literally lurks around every corner.
Army of the Dead – 2021
Army of the dead is Zack Snyder’s latest creation, and it appealed to those who watched it pretty well.
The movie is quite different from other zombie movies because instead of the whole world getting infected, only the Las Vegas area has a zombie issue. A group of people are invited to come to the only undead place in the world to collect the money left in a safe.
A bank robbery in the middle of a zombie apocalypse is a new idea, and while the movie wasn’t perfect for some, it still made for a great movie night.
