7. Zombie (1979)



(a.k.a. Zombi 2)

The best of the Italian zombie factory of the late '70s and '80s, director Lucio Fulci's film is probably best known for its underwater encounter between a zombie and a shark. But it also had the most gruesome scene ever filmed featuring an eyeball - that is until 2005's Hostel trumped it. Another memorable moment features a great sequence of the living dead rising from the earth - Michael Jackson's Thriller had nothing on Fulci in that department.

6. Deadgirl (2008)



By far the most disturbing zombie film on the list, "Deadgirl" is a completely different and original take on the zombie movie. Following the path of high school friends who discover a living corpse in the basement of an abandoned mental hospital, the film delves into the deranged psyches of bored suburban teenage boys, and exposes the different levels of depraved morals among them. This is not a film to watch on date night.

5. Shaun of the Dead (2004)


The top modern zombie movie (post-2000), "Shaun of the Dead" incorporates the best of zombie comedy films - with realistic walking dead, ample gore, and fun use of everyday items to fight off zombies (like the famous record-throwing scene) - without getting too silly. Plus, the scene where the survivors "play dead" can serve as a educational film for zombie walk newbies everywhere.

4. The Return of the Living Dead (1985)


Although Romero purists will marginalize John Russo's post-Night-of-the-Living-Dead impact on the zombie movie genre, "The Return of the Living Dead" had an indelible impact in two ways. First, it featured fast-moving zombies decades before they became mainstream in modern day zombie movies. Second, it introduced the zombie call-to-arms, "Braaaains!"

3. Night of the Living Dead (1968)



"They're coming to get you, Barbara," jokes Johnny to his sister at the beginning of George Romero's classic, which pretty much created the entire genre. Little does Johnny know that they're coming for him too, as he becomes the first zombie attack victim.

Although it has been remade twice (the decent 1990 version and the horrible 2006 debacle in 3D), the original is just as chilling as anything that has come from the genre since. This movie forces you to think about every possible stronghold, weak point, and escape route in your house.

2. Braindead (1992)



(a.k.a. Dead Alive)

Peter Jackson's blood-splattered comedic masterpiece may be the goriest film on the list, but it's so over-the-top that it's actually funny. This movie will do two things to you: Make you squeamish about eating soup and give you grand fantasies of fighting the undead every time you mow the lawn.

1. Dawn of the Dead (1978)



Romero took the reins of the genre he created with "Night of the Living Dead" and followed it up with "Dawn of the Dead" — the greatest zombie flick of all time. The film's immediate focus is the action inside a suburban mall, where a band of survivors try to keep swarms of undead at bay. However, it's the setup to the zombie apocalypse at the beginning of the film - where the world tried to make sense of it all - that really makes it resonate. The world is forced to cope with the inevitability of a slow, plodding, violent end. And yet there is still hope. Kind of.
