You can never have enough zombie movies and unfortunately I am not saying that because there are a ton of movies for zombie fans released each year. However, even though sometimes their quality is questionable to say the least, we do get a fair share of zombie movie releases and in this article we’re going to talk about them.
Make sure you also check out my list of the best ever zombie movies – titles you have to watch if you haven’t done so already. Once you’ve watched the classics, then take a crack at this list:
The Girl With All the Gifts
Definitely the best on this list! It has a solid cast as well – Gemma Arterton or Glenn Close and I am sure you will love it. A must watch, suitable even for those who are not necessarily fans of the genre. Find out more about it on IMDB.
Day of the Dead
Very little is known about this movie, but it has a really hefty budget for a zombie flick: $10 million, so something nice might come out. It’s also said to be a remake of Romero’s Day of the Dead, which is definitely a bonus! Keep an eye on it on IMDB. This surely looks like a potential fan favorite for future years!
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
I am not a very big fan of Resident Evil anymore and I was sure that I’ve seen the last in the series 2 or 3 times ago, but there you have it: there’s one more left for fans. Not your regular zombie flick, but most people label it like a zombie movie so it’s on our list. More details on IMDB.
Another potential hit, starring the Hobbit aka Martin Freeman in a role I wasn’t expecting to see him anytime soon: a father trying to save his son during the zombie apocalypse. This one is definitely worth keeping an eye on – IMDB is again our friend.
Another big movie with AAA actors like Matt Smith, Clive Standen, Natalie Dormer or Stanley Tucci. It comes with an interesting approach, as we’re following a man who can speak the new language of the infected during the apocalypse and we follow him as he tries to lead a group of survivors to safety. Check it out on IMDB.
Marilyn: Zombie Hunter Documentary
This looks like a B movie at best, but since its director describes it as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Kill Bill,” this makes me want to find out more. Keep an eye on IMDB for more details.

You can’t have a blog about zombies without featuring a list of the best zombie movies ever made. However, since all the other zombie blogs have this list and it’s pretty much the same everywhere, I was reluctant to quickly making it happen. But today is the big day when you might find yourself one or more great new zombie flicks to watch.
It’s time to check out Anything Zombie’s best zombie movies EVER list – and I will make sure to add to it as new movies are released. Don’t forget to add your own choices at the end of the article by sharing a comment and let me know what you think about my picks (which are in a random order, not from the best to the worst or vice-versa).
While a zombie-virus breaks out in South Korea, a couple of passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan. This is the most recent movie on this list (launched in 2016) but I am sure it has what it takes to become a cult movie. If you love zombie flicks, by all means, watch this one!
A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall. The Movie is full of humor and fast gut ripping Zombies. This is also a remake of one of the best known zombie movies and THE zombie movie that made me a fan – the original Dawn of the Dead, released in 1978.
Years after a plague kills most of humanity and transforms the rest into monsters, the sole survivor in New York City struggles valiantly to find a cure. This movie is technically about Zombies, but a mix between Zombies and Vampires I think. It does give the same feeling and thrill that a Zombie movie does and surviving in an infected world.
A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living. A fun movie with lots of humor – probably the first of its kind to try a completely different approach to the genre and definitely the movie that put Simon Pegg on our radars.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, and a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the Last Twinkie and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America. Famous for its Zombie survival rules which you can check out here as well.
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall. As I said already, this is the movie that made me love anything zombie and I will always hold it dear to my hear!
After an experimental bio-weapon is released, turning thousands into zombie-like creatures, it’s up to a rag-tag group of survivors to stop the infected and those behind its release. Robert Rodriguez at its best!
An end of the world battle between gangsters, cops and zombies, with an unlikely alliance forming. Check out this movie for an European take on the genre – one that has all the gore and fun we want from zombie movies!
There are 666 portals that connect this world to the other side. These are concealed from all human beings. Somewhere in Japan exists the 444th portal…. The forest of resurrection. Have in mind that this movie had a budget of $10,000… and still managed to deliver more than many higher budget zombie flicks out there (but don’t expect the world from it!)
A mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the kids into a feral swarm of mass savages. An unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives. Highly underrated Zombie flick starring Elijah Wood!
A talented mechanic prepares to battle his way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters after his sister is kidnapped on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. It’s basically Mad Max with zombies, so there’s nothing you can’t like about it!
And this would be my list of the best ever Zombie movies. Probably the older folks here will frown upon not seeing the classic zombie movies listed… but should feel free to list them in the comment section below. This list can only grow bigger and better from here on!
