Zombie parody films tend to be far more self-aware than your average zombie comedy. One would think that zombie spoof films wouldn’t necessarily be very smart in terms of humor, but for the most part, they have plenty to say about the undead in a very funny manner. In fact, some of the best parodies of zombie movies are easily some of the best zombie movies period. Zombie films (especially George A. Romero’s zombie films) always have some sort of social commentary attached to them that may or may not have gone over the audience’s head if they’re just watching the film for the gore, but with satirical zombie movies filmmakers are able to get those commentary and messages across through yet another avenue… humor. So, while parodies or spoofs are often just basic jokes pointing out tropes of whatever genre it’s focused on; zombie parodies are still capable of having as much to say if not more so than the films they are parodying.
A good rule of thumb for what makes zombie parodies is to make sure the jokes are faster than the zombies themselves. So, here’s the list of the top zombie parody films. Be sure to share this list with all your friends and re-rank it however you desire. Just remember when voting on the list, use your brains, braaaiiinnnsss!
