TOP 10: ZOMBIE MOVIES!!!

Today, in honor of the release of The Walking Dead: Season One on BluRay and DVD, CHERNOBOG'S BLOG presents the TOP 10: ZOMBIE MOVIES!

#10 The Return of the Living Dead (1985) This very punky, '80's, parody of the zombie genre actually brought some fun and originality to the genre which coined the term: "Brains!" and featuring such memorable scenes as the Tarman and of course...a nude Linnea Quigley, wow!

 #9 Fido (2006) A classic tale about a boy and his zombie! The pseudo-1950's, post-zombie outbreak is hilarious and surprisingly original.

 #8 28 Days Later (2002) Danny Boyle's British masterpiece, the rage virus creates blood-spewing zombie-like infected which run amok in London. I love the music!

 #7 Zombieland (2009) Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars with Woody Harrelson in this hilarious and action-packed zombie shootout. "Time to nut up or shut up!" The opening credit sequence does it for me every time featuring Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls"!

 #6 Zombie (1979) Italian director Lucio Fulci's incredibly gory masterpiece! A zombie fighting a shark underwater, what more could you ask?!

 #5 Dawn of the Dead (2004) Zack Snyder's (Watchmen, 300) first film and an impressive remake of George Romero's classic! It also featured faster zombies!?

 #4 Resident Evil (2002) Based on the incredibly popular Capcom vidseo game Paul W. S. Anderson's started a new zombie franchise that has so far released 3 sequels including last years Resident Evil: Afterlife.

 #3 Shaun of the Dead (2003) Director Edgar Wright+Simon Pegg+Nick Forst=Perfect Combination! In this British homage to the genre brought Simon Pegg and Nick Frost success all over the world!

 #2 Dawn of the Dead (1978) "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth." George Romero's long awaited sequel to his original Night of the Living Dead which brought all the glorious zombie gore in beautiful color!

#1 Night of the Living Dead (1968) THE original, the ONE and ONLY, George A. Romero classic!!! This is the one that started it all! "They're coming to get you Barbara..."
