Metro's Top 5 Zombie Films
(According to Chris Alexander, editor-in-chief of NYC horror film magazine Fangoria.)
#5: THEY CAME BACK (2004):
Moody, masterful French chiller about the dead returning and trying to
re-integrate themselves into their old lives and families. Unforgettable and
challenging spin on the old cliches.
#4: TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD (1971): Inspired by Romero's original Night of the Living Dead, this Spanish shocker sees rotten, long dead blind templars, crawling through crypts listening for
their prey. Creepy and atmospheric...
#3: RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (1985): What begins as a spoof of Romero's films, slowly evolves into a blood and brains soaked nightmare. Amazing punk rock soundtrack to boot.
#2: ZOMBIE (1979): The unofficial Italian prequel to Romero's 'Dawn' made by splatter master Lucio Fulci. Insane, delightfully disgusting...
And, as promised...
#1: DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978): An epic piece of fierce, funny, smart, melancholy and stomach churning entertainment.
Thanks to all who submitted their #1 suggestions so far! Honourable mentions to add are:
- @John Dumfries (via Metro Vancouver): shaun of the dead
- @Andrew Filipe (via Metro Ottawa): I like Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later (also Shawn of the Dead and Zombieland for kicks).
- @Butch McLarty (via Metro London): Has to be Night of the Living Dead.
- @Janet Zwhaitz (via Metro London): Sean of the Dead ... Too funny!
- @lisagh king (via Metro Winnipeg): It's an absolute tie between Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead.
- @Kevin M (via Metro Ottawa): NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
- @Andrea Battista (via Metro London): I love Zombieland, hilarious and gory!
- @Jenn Parkman (via Metro Vancouver): All time fave is Night Of The Living Dead. Honourable mentions: Resident Evil, DOTD, I Am Legend, 28 Days/Weeks Later. :)
