  • The humor in Dead Alive will stick with you more than the effects, however.

Personal salvation comes in the form of a new girlfriend, but Lionel s blossoming romance is disrupted by the living dead. Coming to terms with his inner demons suddenly involves tearing out zombies  innards.
  • The infestation in this dated zombie flick starts Cold War-style: A mysterious satellite crashes to Earth, spewing radiation that gets the dead walking again. An assortment of survivors make their way to an abandoned farmhouse and steel themselves to defend civilization.
  • Army of Darkness (the final installment in the Evil Dead trilogy) was produced on a fairly meager budget, and it shows: The set backgrounds are ridiculously obvious matte paintings and the execution of the special effects is really hit-and-miss. Still a great watch though, thanks to an incredibly creative director in Sam Raimi (who went on to direct the Spider-Man franchise) and a hilarious performance from B-movie king Bruce Campbell in the leading role.
  • The story in here is really nothing extraordinary: Zombies take over city, humans take refuge in shopping mall and then try to fight their way out. The direction (courtesy of Zack Snyder), however, elevates Dawn of the Dead into a class of its own. The first 20 minutes of this movie are pure chaos, and you ll be giggling nervously for the remainder of it.
  • The Italians love their gore flicks, and their countryman Lucio Fulci made some of the best ones out there. Zombie is probably his best known, no doubt in part because it followed on the heels of George Romero s enormously successful Dawn of the Dead (1978). Fulci even went so far as to first name the flick Zombi 2 in an attempt to trick audiences into thinking it was a sequel to Romero s movie (which was released as Zombi in most of Europe)
  • Medical student Herbert West moves from Switzerland to America to continue his studies on reviving the dead human brain. His re-animator injection fluid seems to be pretty effective, but there are still a few violent side effects to be worked out. Suffice it to say, Dr. West s plans to  conquer death  don t pan out.
  • Rupert Everett plays Francesco Dellamorte, a man with the unenviable task of standing watch over a cemetery whose inhabitants rise from the grave several days after burial. Having grown accustomed to a dreary existence of splitting open zombie skulls and reburying them, Dellamorte is happily surprised by the arrival of a mysterious young widow (luscious Italian model Anna Fulchi). Unfortunately, she croaks fairly early in the story -- but don t worry, she ll be back.
  • This Hong Kong production captures the flavor of  90s American horror flicks perfectly: Lots of blood and guts for the traditional fan, packaged with humor and tongue-in-cheek twists for everyone else.
  • The zombie plague in 28 Days Later comes about as the result of some mismanaged genetic research. All of London turns undead, followed by the rest of the country and, presumably, the world. It s up to a bike courier, Jim, and his small posse to sustain the human race and avoid the blood splatters that will turn them into frothing, flesh-hungry freaks. And trust me, there are a lot of blood splatters to dodge in this flick.
  • Day of the Dead was one of the first zombie flicks to focus on how testy humans can get during a zombie infestation, a story element that nearly every one of its successors would pick up on.
