What are the best zombie movies to watch? I'm not looking for best BAD movies here... I'm looking for some seriously good zombie movies.

Or do good zombie movies not exist?

The Romero trilogy, at least the first two.

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie is seriously underrated...it's probably as good as any.

The Fulci stuff is bad in a lot of ways, but fun.

And try as I might, I can't keep away from Night of the Zombies.  Or Burial Ground.

Some like Dead Alive...I don't because I think it's too comic but others think it's a fun film.  

Zombie Holocaust and Nightmare City I've never really cared for.

Zombie 3 and Zombie 4 are the bottom of the barrel, probably.

Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, while obviously a b-flick, is an extremely fun and witty b-flick.  Check it out.  Also, an Australian film called Undead that I think is gonig to be released in the U.S. later this year is quite awesome.

Also, The Dead Hate the Living rocks.  Loads of inside jokes for b-movie fans.

Eh, different strokes.  No zombie movie can be good that has only two zombies [three if you count the guy that looks like Rob Zombie.]  Typical full moon stuff, I guess.

However, the worst I've seen were probably Zeder and Zombie Lake.

Don't forget Return of the Living Dead-- works as both a black comedy and a horror flick, with a fun punk soundtrack.

Also, I haven't seen it, but I've heard great things about Wild Zero.

Wild Zero is more like a music video that happens to have zombies in it.

Along with really bad CGI.

Obviously I'm a fan of the Romero trilogy, but Wild Zero is great weird fun - imagine Plan 9 from Outer Space starring the Japanese equivalent of the Ramones and you'll have a basic idea what it's about.  Still, I'd have to say the best zombie movie I've ever seen is Cemetery Man, aka Dellamorte Dellamore, which is possibly the only existentialist zombie film around.  Brilliant dark humor offsets what is otherwise a fairly melancholy film about insanity and loneliness (and zombies, but they're sort of beside the point).

I've always liked Night Life myself. Bunch of kids get in an accident and are killed (possibly with toxic chemicals), the freezer at the funeral home breaks down and (if I recall correctly) the place is hit by lightning. The teenagers are re-animated as staggering zombies. In a weird twist, a zombie girl seems to have a thing for the hero, a teenager who works at the funeral home, even though she didn't like him when she was alive.

"The Serpent and the Rainbow"  It might be more of a vodoo movie about Zombies than zombie movie, but it's still a good one.

Aside from the obvious Romero flicks, I'd have to say that I really enjoyed Re-Animator.

I am sure they are out there. Of course, it depends upon what one's definition of good is. As for myself, I like the older zombie films, so I like the American "I Walked with a Zombie" and the American "White Zombie" w/ Bela Lugosi, as the zombie master. And there is the more recent British "28 Days Later," which I did not particularly like, but, alot of other people did. And as Max mentioned, there is the Italian "Cemetery Man," which I did like, and which is reveiwed at this site, if ianybody is interested.

dawn of the dead is a seriously sick movie. i love tom savini as the guy with the mallet cos he just doesnt give a f**k how hard he hits those bastards with that mallet, haha, i also think night of the living dead is an awsome film (the original not the remake) i just love it when those rednecks are turturing the zombies at the end & they just hang the zombies & start shooting the kneecaps off. sick!!!!!!!!!!!!

City of the Living Dead aka Gates of Hell is great. So is The Beyond. I also enjoyed Burial Ground, though it is kinda corny!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
