British zombie films

Films that generally fall into the "zombie" category, which for this list I'm keeping pretty loose, so as well as your classic zombie movies, it includes what I'm calling contagious violence, like the 28 X Later films, and the vengeful dead.

The British zombie movie is important in the history of the genre because they helped keep the flame alive and would, in turn, influence George Romero who was inspired by them (and many others movies) when coming up with Night of the Living Dead, as explained by Jennnifer Dotson in her Ma thesis:


In the fifties, science fiction had surpassed horror in popularity in Hollywood, and Gothic monsters such as vampire, werewolves, and mummies were traded in for giant insects, killer vegetables, and alien invaders. After the influx of poorly constructed zombie-themed films in the 1950s failed at the box office, most Hollywood producers abandoned the zombie altogether. When it seemed the living dead were indeed a dying breed in Hollywood, the zombie film was given a new life abroad. As a result of Hollywood's cold shoulder, the zombie was relocated and began to flourish in other countries, particularly in Great Britain and Mexico. British films like Doctor Blood's Coffin (1960) and The Earth Dies Screaming (196), although low budget, helped the zombie genre gain popularity in Great Britain during a horror revival there in the 1960s. Hammer Studios, the leading producer of horror films in Great Britain, released a zombie film in 1966 called Plague of the Zombies. Although the film is not well know, having been overshadowed by more successful Hammer endeavours, it is notable for giving the zombie an international stage.


Given the fact that there was a small homegrown tradition of such films before NotLD, it is odd that it took so long for we Brits to get in on the trend, once the game changed and the sub-genre too off, as outlined by British horror historian MJ Simpson:


it took a long time for zombie films to take hold in the UK. If we skip over the 'walking dead' in the Terence Fisher sci-fi opus The Earth Dies Screaming and those in Hammer's pre-Romero The Plague of the Zombies, we find (unless we're prepared to really bend the definition) a complete dearth of the living dead in British film-making until Andrew Parkinson's I, Zombie: The Chronicles of Pain in 1998. Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s there were zombie films made in the USA and Europe but the closest we got to British zombies was Jorg Grau and his Manchester Morgue, which was shot in the UK but is, in real terms, a Spanish film. It just never occurred to anyone making British horror features - at any level - to try to put Romero-esque zombies into British genre culture.


He then goes on to touch on the two key British "zombie" movies:


after that brace of indie undead, it was two much bigger studio productions which really established the UK as a suitable home for zombies. 28 Days Later was released in 2002; Shaun of the Dead two years later - yet even at this short remove they seem to have appeared together, solidly establishing the United Kingdom as a place where the dead walk.


They weren't just locally important but would help revitalise the whole sub-genre and are a vital part of the push that helped make zombies mainstream and now almost ubiquitous.

Director: Terence Fisher
“ Although I'm pretty sure they weren't zombies by any of my definitions above I am including it here because American Zombie Gothic says "Such films as Cahn's Invisible Invaders and Fisher's The Earth Does Screaming depict hoards of reanimated human corpses used as armies by alien forces to invade and subjugate the human race,, and they present obvious sources of visual inspiration for Romero[19]" Unless I missed something in TEDS, then "reanimated human corpses" only refers to Invisible Invaders, but the mind-enslaved "zombies" here do definitely look like a the undead from Night of the Living Dead and, as explained above, it is a key stage in the evolution of the sub-genre. ” - Mighty_Emperor

“ A Hammer/Shaw Brothers co-production but, despite being co-directed by Chang Cheh (one of the leading kung-fu directors of the time) it was rather a clunky, but watchable, effort.

A Spanish/Italian co-production largely filmed in the UK (mainly the NW), which is why it is in here especially as it is one of the first where we get to see recognisable living dead in the British countryside (although Plague of the Zombies got there first, this post-dates NotLD). ” - Mighty_Emperor

“ This student short would lead to "The Soldier" and eventually the concept would be reworked into The 4th Reich - all listed below. All falling into the general war/horror field. ” - Mighty_Emperor
 
26.
“ This seems never to have been released but is connected with other films on this list, according to the production company:


In 1998 Shaun Robert Smith directed a short film called ’AWOL to horror’ a story of zombies in Vietnam. The year later Shaun penned the sequel, ’The Twitching Dead’, a feature film. The film was 75% complete before some of the film stock was destroyed! This closed the film down completely and all that remains is an extended trailer. In 2005 Shaun and fellow Smudge company director Simon Rippin decided to pick the project up and re-write the whole thing. The re-write will include scenes from ’AWOL to horror’, and will be very dark. ... We decided to give the world a taster of whats to come, so we produced the idea as a 10 minute short called ’The Soldier’.


It is unclear if this rewritten film ever appeared or if it morphed into The 4th Reich. ” - Mighty_Emperor

A group of women afflicted with a horrible disease (which forces them to cannibalism) try to support one another. (90 mins.)
“ A sequel of sorts to I, Zombie.

It follows the story of some seemingly normal young woman and their day-to-day existence as the cannibalistically contaminated: trying to secure fresh man-meat, dodging zombie hunters and slowly transforming into something less easy on the eye. It is an unsettling portrayal as they more sympathetic than the raging infected we'd come to know very well the following year, almost like a social realist take on drug-addicted prostitutes interspersed with gory cannibalism. ” - Mighty_Emperor

Director: Lawrence Gough
“ A surprise hit for me amongst the flood of "zombie" films, it involves an outbreak of contagious violence on the Brookside set (which means they can be a bit more ambitious with the houses and exteriors rather than relying on a few snatched early morning shots) and it focuses strongly on the characters, which is always a good sign. ” - Mighty_Emperor

Zombie Women of Satan (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.3/10 X  
A travelling group of freaks, headed up by Pervo the Clown, go to a rural farm to take part in a webcast... (85 mins.)
“ I suppose if you knew a dozen goth girls prepared to get their knockers out on film and a handful of actors up for pretending to be a freakshow and some cardboard-thin baddies, then why not get them together in the woods, throw in some bad taste scenes and plenty of claret? Unfortunately, the too much of the acting was ropey and when you get the feeling it is friends messing around in the woods it can make suspending disbelief tricky and you do need it suspended from a great height. It is also a problem with an apparent horror comedy, as it can make jokes fall flat and it really need more of them to work.

Now it might sound odd, because this is a film with a very long sequence involving a dwarf crapping in the woods, a topless, female zombie in a wheelchair and a father taping his son having sex with a zombie, but it also needed to be more outrageous and not rely on another meat-muncher turning up clad in just her knickers to raise an eyebrow (or anything else). Hopefully, the sequel I see listed here will take the formula and raise the bar a couple of notches (or attach it to a rocket and send it into orbit) - watching Peter Jackson's early films would seem like good homework for them, as he managed to produce quite a few memorable moments on a small budget. ” - Mighty_Emperor
