ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES 400 films, television series and documentaries.

by IheartZombies1 | created - 04 Mar 2011 | updated - 7 months ago | Public

Welcome to what I hope is the most comprehensive ranking of zombie movies on IMDB. This list is subjective as nobody has seen them all and there are many, many more beyond the four hundred seen here. But hopefully there are a few new "undead" flicks for Zombie fans to chew on. Also, after the first three hundred and fifty or so films it starts to get a little ugly as the cinematography viewing quality drops off rather quick. Which is why I won't post more than what is already here. Also , I frequently update my revue with new undead films so feel free to revisit as I'm constantly improving this list. Thanks.
