The British seem to have a way with the undead, as proven by this list of the best British zombie movies. Credited with reviving (or should I say reanimating) the zombie genre, 28 Days Later was both a critical and commercial success, and is perhaps the strongest English zombie movie on this list. 
 

Joining 28 Days Later on this list of British zombie films are the classic The Woman Eater, the sci-fi Lifeforce and the comedic Shaun of the Dead, each film putting a new spin on the zombie genre. Shaun of the Dead in particular was critically acclaimed, and main Simon Pegg and internationally known household name.
