The Top 10 Zombie Movies of All-Time

Bats: R, Throws: R. How Acquired: Traded for a player to be named later.

I hold a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Louisville, earned in history. I have lived with Crohn’s disease since 2005, and chronic depression since my youth. I bring into each film that I view a world view shaped by those and other parts of my background. I try to be mindful of the socio-political themes and implications of movies, intended or otherwise, and that surely shows in my blog pieces. I also love doughnuts.

    I’m kinda sad that Return of the Living Dead didn’t make this list. While only genre fanatics are likely to remember it, it did some really unique things with the zombie genre. “Return” pioneered the “fast zombie” years before “28 Days Later”, and was the first film to claim that zombies specifically crave brains (as opposed to just generally eating flesh). It treated zombies like hordes of raving drug addicts who don’t just want, but NEED your brains.

    I especially liked how the zombies were as smart as living people, though singlemindedly focused on brains. I liked one moment where a zombie was snacking on a cop in a police cruiser: the radio comes on asking for an update and the zombie picks it up, growling “SEND… MORE… COPS”.

    Basically it was a rare mix of straight up goofy comedy and legit terror that really worked. Great stuff, and terribly under-appreciated. As somebody really burned out on zombie films, this one surprised me.
