Zombie Movies So Good They Will Bring You Back to Life

Can anybody find us zombodie to love? We’ve got our 8 absolute favourite movies that will get you walking with a dead leg and hunting for brains. Remember rooftopers, always zomBE yourself! (If you think that’s the end of our zombie puns, you’re terribly mistaken. There’s no such thing as overkill. This one is going to be FULL of brain teasers… bone appetit!)

Train to Busan

Why does it make us feel alive?

If you haven’t heard of it, where have you been? In a grave somewhere?! A father is taking his young daughter to see her mother in Busan but trapped on there with them is… a zombie. The virus is spread all throughout the train, and the father has to try desperately to protect his child as well as himself. It’s an emotional nightmare, with perfect gore and teen romance to go with it! There’s something for everyone, basically.

The best bit of die-alogue:

“I’ll take you to mum no matter what.” (You gotta appreciate his dedication…)

Warm Bodies

Why does it make us feel alive?

First of all, Nicholas Hoult. Second of all, Nicholas Hoult’s eyes. #PetitionToStartANicholasCult We’re feeling all warm and fuzzy inside! People are always trying to KILL the monster… it’s about time we KISS the monster. We’re pretty sure monsters are just misunderstood. This super cute romance will get your heart beating again.

The best bit of die-alogue:

“Say something human, say something human, say something human.” (same, dude. Same.)

Zombieland

Why does it make us feel alive?

There’s no rule which says all zombie movies have to be scary to be totally epic. Some can be hilarious. This is just one example of a zomedy (starring the super awesome Emma Stone!) which is basically perfect. They’re trying to find their way to a rumoured haven and to do so, have to push through a wall of brain-eating guys ‘n’ gals.

The best bit of die-alogue:

Basically all of it? But mostly “Yeah, I shave every morning but sometimes by like 4:30 I’ll have a thing. I mean, I know it’s called a five o’clock shadow but sometimes I’ll get it prematurely.”

World War Z

Why does it make us feel alive?

Brad Pitt is working his magic on the screen right beside some weird-looking creatures. For some reason zombies are being transported by helicopters and people thought it was a good idea to dump them all in one place instead of getting rid of them to eliminate the virus. Yeah. We don’t get it either. (Still love it, though!)

The best bit of die-alogue:

”This isn’t the end. Not even close. We’ve lost entire cities. We still don’t know how it started. We bought ourselves some time. But it’s given us a chance. Others have found a way to push back. If you can fight, fight. Help each other. Be prepared for anything. Our war has just begun.”

28 Weeks Later

Why does it make us feel alive?

To sum up, people thought they were safe when they actually weren’t. This is why you never trust the government, people! It was the calm before the ztorm – get ready to believe everything is all hunkydory only to be punched in the face by a zombie.

The best bit of die-alogue:

“Abandon selective targeting. Shoot everything. Targets are now free. We’ve lost control.”

I Am Legend

Why does it make us feel alive?

There’s literally one rule. Just one. Protect the dog. That’s it, that’s ALL we were asking for. Well, that and for Will Smith to kick some undead booty. They’re dead ringers in first place. Robert Neville searches for other people who have survived the plague (which we’re counting as a zombie virus ‘cause there’s no such thing as the zombie police), spending his days isolated and searching for a cure.

The best bit of die-alogue:

“Light up the darkness.”

Night of the Living Dead

Why does it make us feel alive?

Anyone who loves the undead as much as we do knows this actual gem. We’re taking creepy to a whole new big buff level with this one. We don’t know what people in the 60s were on, but you can count us out. We’ll just enjoy the performance of creepy children from afar instead. #ZhanksButNoZhanks

The best bit of die-alogue:

“They’re coming to get you Barbara.”

Shaun of the Dead

Why does it make us feel alive?

Moral of the story, zombie outbreaks in America are bad for everyone involved… in the UK they’re just a bit of a laugh, though. We’re 100% convinced that you just kinda need to bop a zombie on the head with a bat to save the universe. Yeah. That’s how it works. Don’t question it.

The best bit of die-alogue:

“You shouldn’t feel so responsible. You tried. You did something. That’s what counts.”
