Top 10 Horror Movies With Zombies to If You Are A Fan of The Walking Dead

1. Night of the Living Dead (1968)

This was the movie where everything to do with horror movies with zombies began: A great story, groundbreaking cinematography, and some stark and highly realistic scenes. This George A. Romero masterpiece continues to scare us just as it did at the beginning; it is distressing and it continues to give us goosebumps whenever we see it. If you have not seen this classic, we urge you to see it as soon as possible.

2. Dawn of The Dead (1978)

Another Romero classic, but this time in a shopping center, a trope that would later become a classic for many other movies and even video games. A fierce critique of consumerism, with great special effects for the time. It is still an extraordinary film that even now is still very relevant, and continues to be paradigm-shifting for the zombie genre.

3. The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988)

A Wes Craven movie where we see voodoo rites, zombies, black magic. Actor Bill Pullman has a hard time in this classic horror film for zombie genre lovers and ends up being buried alive when you least expect it.

4. 28 Days Later (2002)

One of the horror movies with zombies that revitalized the genre back in 2002, where the zombies almost completely took over and made us feel fear again in the cinema. Directed by Danny Boyle, the scenes of a completely devastated London and the chases are so believable that they make you feel you are a part of the story.

It is, without a doubt, one of the most harrowing and chilling movies in the genre.

5. Shaun of The Dead (2004)

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two heroes by accident, two normal guys who suddenly ran into the zombie apocalypse and have to fight to survive. These two friends do not stop joking and bickering with one another while zombies are all over the place.

It is hilarious with lots of fun moments and generally very well done, and definitely one of the most recommended of the genre for its freshness and for being different from almost all the others on this list.

6. Rec (2007)

This is one of the many hidden gems within the genre in a language other than English. Rec, of Spanish origin, is a movie full of suspense, pure terror, and an atmosphere that creates paranoia and claustrophobia.

Angela Vidal, a reporter for a news channel, and her faithful cameraman, Pablo, are in charge of interviewing some firefighters during a night of work. When they receive an emergency call to go to a building in Barcelona where neighbors complain about a neighbor who locked herself in and wouldn't stop screaming, it all seems like a simple case.

However, the woman in question shows enormous strength when she is evicted, and one of the firefighters is injured with a bite on the neck. After the firefighter is brought to the hospital, they discover that the entire building is in quarantine, without any explanation.

7. 28 Weeks Later (2007)

It is the sequel to 28 Days Later after 6 months have passed since the outbreak of the epidemic in the British Isles. As good as the first and as exciting and heartbreaking, 28 Weeks Later is one of the great horror movies with zombies from the director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. And Robert Carlyle is still as magnificent as the first.

8. Zombieland (2009)

The most raucous movie on this list, Director Ruben Fleischer's debut couldn't have been more hilarious, which is a story about a rather cowardly kid named Columbus who meets a guy named Tallahassee in a world that has been filled with zombies. And from their madness breaks out, and is full of humor, blood, and more humor. And yes, Woody Harrelson is great in this.

9. World War Z (2013)

Directed by Marc Foster and starring Brad Pitt, this movie based on the novel by Max Brooks is pure fun, and the special effects are just great. Yes, we know that is not the best when it comes to quality on this list, but it is one of the most exciting and entertaining.

10. Train to Busan (2016)

A divorced father trying to get things right with his daughter, who boards a train as a deadly virus spreads across South Korea with nothing to stop it. And on top of that, all the anguish of the travelers on that train, which goes from Seoul to Busan, while they have to fight for their lives as the train is filled with the infected.

Train to Busan is a wonderful movie, fast-paced and so realistic when it comes to zombie behaviors that it makes you jump off the couch on many occasions.
