List RulesVote up the best intentionally funny zombie comedy films

This list of the best zombie comedies proves that there's plenty of laughs available even in the most rotting, apocalyptic landscape. These movies feature everything from fast zombies and chatty zombies to classically shambling horrors, but they all intentionally offer a respite from the undead nightmare with humor.

Zombie comedies include everything from intentionally funny B movies like Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead and other Troma films, satire like The Return of the Living Dead, and very self-aware and dark comedy like Re-Animator. There are even several of zombie musicals, with new entries like Anna and the Apocalypse only swelling the ranks of that particular subgenre of zombie comedy and zombie satire. When a good zombie movie is also a good comedy it becomes something it feels like everybody's seen, not just horror nerds. Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and Army of Darkness are three films that even folks who aren't fans of zombie flicks probably recognize, which shows just how popular good zombie comedy movies can be.

Get in there and vote the best zombie comedies to the top and keep them beyond the reach of the hilarious horde! Then check out our list of zombie shows and our deep-dive into zombie (or zombie-adjacent) movies that don't have any zombies.
