List of the best zombie movies ever, including popular blockbusters like Zombieland, 28 Days Later, and Dawn of the Dead; classic zombie flicks like the 1968's Night of the Living Dead and Comedy/Zombie crossovers like Braindead and Shaun of the Dead. The best zombie movies of all time are certainly up for debate and this is where you come in! Purist zombie fans can argue forever over what really constitutes a zombie movie--does it have to be a drama or horror film or can it be a zombie comedy? What is the dictionary definition of "zombie"? Do the creatures have to be completely brainless and incapable of conversation? Can zombies feast on anything or only brains? etc., etc. But most of the world's zombie cult following will find the zombie films that they most love on this list. 

What are the best zombie movies ever? This is a list of the best zombie movies of all time, as ranked by YOU, you Primitive Screwheads! The best zombie movies are listed here for you to vote, rerank, and even add to. Whether you're a fan of slow shamble zombies or plague infected runners, one thing that we can all agree on is our love of zombie movies. So get in there and get ranking.
