Lucio Fulci's New York Ripper - uncut
We pick our all-time favourite zombie film
WRITTEN BY: Brain Eater
IN THE SAME WAY that you can rely on bran flakes to give you the roughage you need in your diet, zombie films can always be relied upon as a good source of mayhem in any horror aficionado's DVD collection. You see: the good thing about zombies is that you can do virtually anything with them. They can be slow-moving, dumb creatures, or they can be fast-moving and agile. They can be easy to kill, or completely impossible to do away with. Corpses can be re-animated by anything from toxic spills to voodoo incantations. Anything goes. The rules of zombie filmdom are there to be bent and broken after all.

Because the whole zombie premise is so easily pliable many film-makers have tried their hand at making this type of movie over the past few decades. And while some examples of this interesting sub-genre have been outstanding, many have been unbelievably shit. Whatever your likes and dislikes about zombie films, it's hard to go through life without seeing one - though it's advisable not to watch them all in one go. Not unless you want to become a zombie yourself. has spent considerable time dredging-up long-lost zombie classics in order to bring you this: the definitive guide to zombie movies. Wherever possible we've included availability to buy these movies, though it seems not all the films we've listed are easy to locate - a few are discontinued and only available used. Hopefully our guide will provide some help sorting the zombie wheat from the zombie chaff, and will also help you sort which films you're prepared to waste your life watching over those you wouldn't piss on if they were on fire.

Good luck exploring the world of the undead...
WHILE THIS IS NOT a definitive list of every single zombie movie ever made, it is in our minds complete enough to appeal to newcomers and enthusiasts alike. It weighs in at a not-inconsiderable 45 films - each one detailed and rated, as well as available to buy from safe, tested and proven sources. So if there are any gaps in your zombie collection we hope this feature points you in the right direction.
