Top 20 Best Zombie Movies & Top 5 TV Shows Recommended Watch Review List, for the Undead Apocalypse/ Zombies Fan

Even before the first zombie movie, ‘White Zombie,’ people have been obsessed with the undead; the once living, neighbors, friends, relatives, now reanimated and attempting to eat you alive. This concept may be overused in today’s culture, but it was once terrifying.

Creating a modern best of list is difficult, as “best,” to some, may mean scariest, but to others, it may mean cinematic, drama or even humorous. And to others still, it may mean general, quality movie standards of creative story telling and developed, transformative characters. This list will include all of the above and is a recommended watch list for anyone willing to see people eating other people.

 

TV, Top5  (– wait, are there more than 5?)

TWD2The Walking Dead‘ always deserves a mention in anything zombie, I mean, walkers, sorry Robert Kirkman. The first episode is still one of the best, created by Hollywood cinematographer, David Tatersall, and set the tone for the entire series. I wish AMC never fired him; the end of season 1 and the entirety of season could have been good. It got better, of course, and some of those episodes in season 5 and 6 were truly amazing. I personally feel, mid-Negan, the show has gone down hill and lost its appeal to many; (hoping it gets better). I spoke with Robert Kirkman, mid-season 6; he explained that ‘The Walking Dead’ is still in its first act of storytelling. Not sure how that will play out with Andrew Lincoln, ‘Rick,’ leaving the show. AMC will hang on to this show as long as possible, so maybe the overall plan is to realize the big picture story with additional spin-off series like the underwhelming ‘Fear The Walking Dead;’ just make a show about the beginning of the apocalypse, not ‘West Coast Walking Dead,’ it’s not CSI. I did, however, enjoy the brief ‘Flight 462,’ for the mere fact that you cannot escape walkers on a plane.

‘Z Nation’ is just not worth mentioning, aw crap, I mean besides now. Zombie baby, #noop.

izombie-4-sezon-ne-zaman-baslayacakCW’s ‘iZombie‘ is a happy-go-lucky tv series that is all fun and will get you to anticipate each entree Liv Moore creates in every episode. The moral of the series is don’t chase drugs with energy drinks. Or maybe it’s the living and the undead should never date?  Anyway, it’s nothing like the comic.

santa-clarita-diet-season-3-netflix-scheduleSanta Clarita Diet‘ is hysterical all the way through. (if you’re reading this from a time capsule, there are only 2 seasons so far, so I can’t speak for future seasons). What happens when a realtor, or real-a-tor, from the ‘burbs starts to crave human flesh? Does she eat her misogynistic neighbor?

 

MOVIES, Top20

Let’s get the comedy out of the way first..

220px-Life_After_Beth_poster   ‘Life After Beth.’ Aubry Plaza makes this film fun to watch. Unexplained zombie outbreak in suburbia.

Fido  Fido is like ‘Leave It To Beaver’ 50s style television, but with zombies, you’ll love it!

zombieland  Zombieland is a how-to guide to surviving the zombie apocalypse, with great rules to live by. Not only is it entertaining, but it’s a good film as well. I truly loved this movie.

shaun-dead.0.0  ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ is a masterful modern classic, with comedy only Edgar Wright can deliver, and overall, it’s a really good movie. Pulling the blind down to ignore the zombies was a classic scene. Also, setting the stage in the beginning, with people zoning out on the bus before the outbreak is genius. Watch and re-watch.

Drama, action, suspense & horror:

warmbodies   ‘Warm Bodies.’ If you can handle a “zo-mance,” where zombies fall in love and retain human-like qualities, with a happy ending, then this may be for you.

200px-Dodsno    ‘Dead Snow‘ (Norwegian, subtitles). Nazi zombies unearthed in Norway cause havoc. Gory action, with humor.

resident-evil-the-final-chapter-2560x1440-resident-evil-the-final-chapter-6270  ‘Resident Evil.’ The first one was clearly the best in the Milla Jovovich series, but every one is entertaining & promises the Umbrella Corporation, so cool in that regard. Yes, the game is better, but the movies will be rebooted soon and promise more Umbrella Corp, so I’ll be watching.

Rezort-Poster-27x39-copy2-Copy  ‘The Rezort.’  (I still believe ‘Last Rezort’ would have been a better title). A solid movie, with a concise a story, but rather generic. After the zombie outbreak, zombies were defeated, but not eradicated, just put on an island to shoot for recreation. It’s like Jurassic Park, but with zombies, what could go wrong?

HereAlone  ‘Here Alone.’ An indie zombie film. A woman accustomed to isolation in the woods, has her routine upended when she encounters a father and daughter. I liked how you heard the zombies throughout the film, knowing their presence was nearby, but only saw the creatures at the end.

World-war-z-poster03  ‘World War Z.’ Once bitten, you have 11 seconds before you turn. You can’t outrun the turned. If you do manage to escape into a large building, they’ll just pile themselves up a hundred feet high until they breach the building. I’m not spoiling anything am I? I feel like the plot was a little muddled, and it felt like the ending didn’t fit the rest of the film, but it did have some great scenes.

Cargo-Movie-poster  ‘Cargo‘ was a nice film about a man protecting his family. I feel like they traveled in circles the entire film. I enjoyed it, with great performances, but they didn’t follow their own zombie rules at the end.

‘I Am Legend.’ Nope, they were vampires. Yes, it was an apocalyptic movie, like ‘Stakeland,’ but, again, vampires, not zombies. The book had both ravenous zombie-like, flesh-eating vampires, as well as, civilized, societal vampires.

Maggie-review   ‘Maggie.’ Clearly the best acting performance of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career. His daughter has been bitten and slowly turns. He comforts and connects with her and gradually lets go of his child, knowing there is nothing he can do to stop the change.

TheHorde_movieposterThe Horde‘ (Belgian, subtitles). A good film, despite its flaws. A zombie outbreak occurs during a police raid on a notorious criminal gang; they must team up in order to survive.

28weekslaterPSTER066-film-28-weeks-later-2-1000x1000  ‘28 Weeks Later.’ A good sequel to a great film.

Rammbock_movieposter  ‘Rammbock‘ (German, subtitles). The true spirit of a zombie horror flick; it’s suspenseful, scary and has cinematography that enhances the scenes.

thebattery  ‘The Battery.’ A true low-budget indie film, and one of the best on this list. It tells a story, a good story, of two former minor league baseball players, hence the bats, dealing with the end of civilization, loneliness and the need to connect with other human beings, in an apocalyptic landscape.

Ravenous_220px-Les_Affamés_film_poster  ‘Ravenous‘ (2017, there are many movie titles by this name). (French, subtitles). Really good! This movie brings suspense back to zombie films, a must-watch.

REC  Scariest, for me, on this list would go to ‘[REC]‘ (Spanish, subtitles). Other titles on this list have scary moments and overall creepiness, but this found footage horror movie is edge-of-your-seat thrilling. The American remake, ‘Quarantine,’ and both of [REC]’s sequels were not very good.

  ‘Dawn of the Dead.’ George Romero’s 1968 ‘Night of the Living Dead’ created the zombie film genre, and his 1978 ‘Dawn of the Dead’ perfected it. This original recipe, classic horror film sets the stage for everything zombie to follow.  The 2004 Zack Snyder ‘Dawn of the Dead’ reboot is a non-stop action film, quite different from the original; a must-watch for any zombie fan.

28-days-later-2002-poster  ‘28 Days Later.’ Danny Boyle completely changed the zombie rules, which revitalized the genre with this suspenseful film. ’28 Days’ is the first movie to depict zombies as mad, crazed-sprinters; run for your life! These zombies created so much more tension as a result. Also just one drop of infected blood can turn someone in an instant.  However, I felt the last portion of this movie was little uninteresting, compared to its thrilling beginning.

train-to-busan-commentary  ‘Train to Busan‘ is my favorite on this list. It’s a Chinese, action-thriller that is suspenseful from beginning to end. It’s everything a zombie film should be. Just watch it.

 

If I missed a zombie movie title that you loved, by all means, scream at me in the comments. I mean, you may get blocked, but I would love to hear your opinion, not really, but I would like to know if there is a good film that I missed or haven’t seen.

You wont believe what happened on The Walking Dead tonight: Is Glenn really dead? season6 ep3 “Thank You” review recap spoilers (RIPGlenn just in case)

isglenngonnadie-129042

Today on AMC’s The Walking Dead, we saw the sad goodbye of one series’ most beloved characters, Glenn Rhee. But is Glenn really dead? Or is it just wishful thinking that Glenn is still alive? Maybe, but Glenn almost died in the season finale of season 5 of The Walking Dead. Remember when 3 Walkers were top of him and somehow he survived? By the way, that was also Nicholas’ fault. Nicholas, of course, is remembered most for panicking and directly causing the death of Noah in the revolving door scene of season 5. Glenn forgave him and tried to turn Nicholas into a better person, but fear of the Walking Dead (see what I did there?) overcame Nicholas and (spoiler alert) he shot himself on top of the dumpster taking Glenn down with him into the Walker heard below. Here we see a sad goodbye to a great man, Glenn Rhee, rest in peace my friend.

Apocalypse’s Best Power Couple Glenn and Maggie

Glenn survives .. in season 5

But is Glenn really dead? Facts: We saw a body being eaten and Glenn screaming, but you could say that it was Nicholas’ body that was eaten by Walkers on top of Glenn, especially because intestines seem to be coming out of Glenn’s shoulder, not the lower torso, where they should be located. Does AMC need an anatomy lesson? Or did Glenn somehow crawl underneath the dumpster to survive? Are we all just overly emotionally attached to our favorite characters, wishing that by some miracle they survive against all odds, refusing to accept the most likely scenario? Did Glenn survive? I don’t know, but a good question to tweet at Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comics, Outcast comic and co-writer of The Walking Dead series and Fear The Walking Dead. All the episode deaths could have avoided, including Glenn’s apparent death, if, in the pet store, where they killed two walkers, they just covered themselves in walker blood and just walked home.

Glenn_dies_the_walking_dead3

Glenn_dies_from_above_the_walking_dead Did the walkers eat Glenn or Nicholas’ body on top of Glenn?

Also in this episode, Heath settles his differences with Michone, the start of a beautiful friendship? Other dude we don’t really know never gets back to his apocalyptic wife, (not wife before the apocalypse). Rick realizes his plan has been thwarted, but sticks to his guns to protect the community of Alexandria, and also kicks ass in hand to hand with two Wolves members, but damages the RV as he kills two more, because he’s Rick Mother F-ing Grimes. In the final scene, we see the swarm about to overtake the RV, now with a broken door. I’m also worried about Rick’s hand, is it a cut or a walker scratch?

‘Fear The Walking Dead’ jumped right into the impending apocalypse, but did it jump too quickly? premiere episode review / recap

‘Fear The Walking Dead’ : Fear Begins Here.. Does it?

in ‘Fear The Walking Dead,’ I was expecting a different story, origin of the outbreak, the slow spread and eventual downfall of civilization. the pilot episode of “Fear The Walking Dead’ seemed rushed, like let’s hurry up to catch up with Rick’s team in Georgia/DC. Take your time, you have 2 seasons to get there (yep, AMC issued 2 seasons before the pilot even aired. a gamble? well not really, ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ received 10.1 million viewers, making it the most highly viewed pilot ever). If you get there too soon, all you will have is ‘The Walking Dead’ in California. Make “Fear..” different enough so we will want to watch it in a different way. Robert Kirkman, the creator of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics and tv series, said, in an interview, that telling the origin of the outbreak was not interesting to him. well it’s interesting to us Robert! perhaps dangling that question keeps us glued to each episode (although there is a slight reveal in the comics). it just seemed like the premiere episode of ‘Fear..’ should have been episode 3. take your time, let’s explore the spread of the ..virus? is it even a virus? maybe it’s a pathogen or genetic alteration? I would rather see a slow unfolding of the spread and fall of society, rather than a hurried one.

fear-the-walking-dead-still-imagespoilers: in ‘Fear..’ we meet a Walker in the opening scene and the main characters later discover, through trial and error, that some people are no longer people and can’t be killed by running them over in cars. we also see the police and first responders try to deal with an outbreak from a car accident, as if they had never experienced it before, but in the hospital, we hear hospital staff utter, “another victim” as if the medical team knows something, as they rush a patient’s dead body to the basement. In class, we learn about the theme for the series, Jack London’s book, ‘To Build A fire,’ Man vs Nature and “Nature always wins..” perhaps that is all we will get about the origin, as if some single-sighted military plot, GMO food or medical research vaccine meddling goes awry and Nature corrects itself creating Walkers after death. also connected, Chaos Theory is being taught in another classroom, hinting that the balance of Life has somehow been tampered with.

29C9383600000578-3131821-image-m-62_1434735311384there is a certain amount of mystery when the protagonists don’t know what’s going on, and I love that, but I wanted more of that. ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ is great television and the character development is amazing. there’s action, but it’s not uber scary; (the scariest part was the title credits). I want more episodes already. the premiere of ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ was not as epic as ‘The Walking Dead’s pilot episode, but more great things are coming. conclusion: YES, WATCH!

#FearTheWalkingDead : Watch the 1st 3min here of #TheWalkingDead spinoff tv series, premieres sun at 9pm on AMC

IMG_7734-620x400Fear becomes reality with the premiere of Fear The Walking Dead‬.
Watch the story of the unfolding (‪don’t use the word “zombie‬“) apocalypse. How did it start? (We may never know exactly “how” or “who” started the apocalypse (you have to read the comics for that ;), but we will see the origin of the outbreak and what the police, military, CDC and the government did to try and stop it Find out more during season 1 of The Walking Dead‬ spinoff series ‘Fear The Walking Dead.’ ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ takes place in Los Angeles, CA, contrasting the later events that take place in Georgia in “The Walking Dead,’ and will tell a different story, with different characters of the same impending apocalypse. There may be a crossover of ‘The Walking Dead’ characters, Robert Kirkman, the creator of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics and television series, has hinted, but not confirmed this to be true; it may only happen in season 2. ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ begins  during the time Rick is in a coma and the outbreak takes hold. In ‘The Walking Dead’ timeline, it takes about 5 weeks for the outbreak to bring down civilization and turn the world into a Walker (zombie) apocalypse. We will also have to wait impatiently as the characters figure out what’s going on, what a zombie/Walker is, how people turn into Walkers, how the disease is spread, how noise attracts Walkers, the whole Walkers smelling humans issue and, of course, how to permanently kill a Walker (head shot). It might be interesting to watch this unfold, although I may be yelling at my television, giving them pointers :/ The Walkers themselves will be freshly turned, not have decomposed over 5 seasons, and will be able to run (although, you may remember businessman Walker hoping a fence in season1 episode2..)  I really want to see this and hope they can continue this spinoff into many seasons.

2012-Los-Angeles-Goes-Undersan andreas

perhaps they tried to make this film a little too epic.. they failed, it looks more like ‘2012,’ a laughable disaster movie that’s too over-the-top to be believable; just add aliens, robots and godzilla, don’t pretend it’s a serious movie. also, not the sequel to ‘volcano’ (1997).

rating: the epic scenes will be best in the theatres, but as far as a movie goes, with things that make a movie good, like a good story, wait for dvd; unless you like to see california fall off into the ocean-traffic problem solved, but seriously, save your money.   may 29

Z Nation : review : zombie apocalypse on the syfy channel

i was almost really looking forward to this show, but feel all the different types of tales that can be told of a zombie apocalypse have already been told with the Walking Dead and all the various zombie movies over the years. iZombie, the CW tv show slated for release in 2015, based on comic book, however, offers a new perspective.

so the intro of this show, with loads of action and suspense, held my attention; it was like a mix of World War Z and an action version of the Walking Dead; i liked it. as the show progresses, you are shown pieces of the government clinging to structure and still trying to function as such. refugee camps do not need long narratives to explain their plight and how they’ve managed to function and survive; piggy-backing off the established commentary of the Walking Dead, that took many episodes to create. i appreciated Z Nation not needing to recreate the wheel here, they didn’t even pause at the name zombie, like some movies do. if the zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow, no one would be confused as to walk a zombie was or what name to call it; we know; thankfully Z Nation didn’t slow the episode by having to explain such things.

what you need to know: the zombies in Z Nation move fast, like as fast as a normal human would run, but not quite as fast as sprinting World War Z and 28 days later/28 weeks later zombies, and Z Nation zombies are very, very strong; they eventually can rip down steel bars. if a zombie bites you, you turn into a zombie very quickly, not 11 seconds, like in World War Z, but no waiting hours to turn either, like in the Walking Dead. it is hinted that if you die, you will turn into a zombie, without having to be bitten by a zombie to transfer the zombie virus, just like in the Walking Dead or the movie Fido. Z Nation zombies can successfully knock on doors, imitating humans, and intentionally play dead until prey, humans, approach. this indicates either they retain some sort of intelligence, instead of being just “a bunch of mindless zombies,” or it’s just bad writing.

the verdict: the show almost rushed through too much too fast, i had almost no connection with anyone before the turning point scene. if you haven’t had time to understand a character and their motivations, when a character is faced with an emotional decision, you almost don’t care. i’m talking, of course, about the zombie baby scene. they find a baby, other dude, suddenly has an emotional moment, you don’t know what to make of it, then somehow, not clear in the scene, the baby turns into a zombie. the baby wasn’t bit by the nearby zombie. was the baby just feigning to be like a human for an hour? we really don’t know, just boom, baby is now a zombie. next, rational, military guy suddenly has a heart and says it must be him that kills the baby, because, “they just can’t leave him that way.” why do you suddenly care? and why does one baby warrant locking & barring the door behind military dude? at this point it turns into a scene from Chucky, with creepy baby zombie laughs, which, after the third one, become hilarious, and cheesy searching under debris and beds, with low camera angles, just waiting for zombie baby Chucky to pop out and shock you. and surprise twist, baby zombie kills military dude as another zombie appears out of nowhere and joins in. you are left with one thing: why? why did he go in there in the first place? why did he go alone? and why am i watching this? then, everyone else enters the room (again, why didn’t they all go in before? oh yeah, one line of out-of-character dialog) and the group unloads about 200 rounds of firepower, all in typical slow-mo ‘epic’ action style, all just to kill 2 zombies and military dude, (to keep him from turning into a zombie). they’ve been fighting zombies for three years now, according to the lower third credits, and they’ve never learned to conserve ammo or to abandon zombies you don’t need to kill to survive? really? the next scene you see sniper guy, whom we’ve never met, but just know he exists because he snipered a zombie, abandoning his sniper rifle and walking down the road, without any explanation at all, other than to be asked to join the group, as they drive by-wat too plot convenient and why did you leave your weapon behind? it was just like a scene from Sharknado that makes no sense. i bring up Sharknado, because both Z Nation and Sharknado were spawned from the syfy network, but also, because syfy tweeted tonight that Z Nation “was the cure for the Walking Dead.” the context being, everything wrong with the Walking Dead is fixed with Z Nation. after the zombie baby scene, it was clear Z Nation is a comedy and is not to be taken seriously. this point is driven home further when the NSA radio operator, in the northern arctic, location unclear, turns into a global DJ, like Good Morning Vietnam, but for the apocalyptic world. attention syfy, if you’re going to make a comment like that, you better be damn sure you are actually better; since your show is inadequate at best and repugnant at worst, that comment is clearly just an insult, shame on you syfy, but Z Nation could have been worse, it could have been as bad as Helix.
