Everyone loves Zombies nowadays! With the success of the TV series THE WALKING DEAD, based on the comic book, which I should mention I have been reading from the start and is even better then the TV series, but now we have the summer blockbuster WORLD WAR Z, which to me wasn’t even a horror film and was truly a bore, sad to say. But with the nation going ZOMBIEPALOOZA right now, I give you my top 15 favorite Zombie Movies of all time. I know I missed some classics ….they set the standard, i like watching them, but they just don’t make my top list. the 28 days/weeks films are credited with reinvigorating the zombie genre. So YES its a ZOMBIE movie, before u get your zombie-self worked up….If you haven’t seen some of these they are worth the watch.
