Halloween Horror: Your Guide To Navigating Netflix Watch Instantly This October

Zombie Movies


Coinciding with society’s strange zombie culture obsession, Netflix has an endless horde of subgenre fare that outnumbers every single other subgenre. I happen to love zombies, so it’s a bit of a gold mine if you ask me, but the sheer volume of zombie picks might throw viewers with no guidance. Well, since I’m so nice, I’ve picked out some of my favorite zombie flicks to start off your walker marathon, that’s unless you’ve already started binge-watching The Walking Dead.

Starting off with some classics, you’ve got George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead as well as Day Of The Dead, two absolute must-see movies for zombie fans. You’ve got the original zombie masterpiece and its military-centric sequel at your fingertips, but maybe you’re looking for something a little funnier, which I totally understand. In that case, I’ve got two more classics that aren’t traditional zombie movies, but Evil Dead 2 and Re-Animator absolutely have zombie elements that are interwoven into stories that don’t take themselves too seriously.

On the new-age side, you’ve got movies like Pontypool, Dead Snow, and Cockneys Vs. Zombies, spanning the topics of audible infections and Nazi zombies. These new movies all have an updated bite, sleeker style, and higher propensity for outlandish gore, much like the old-school Sam Raimi mentality. Impressively, these films found a way to remain fresh amidst a never-ending flood of similar zombie copycats. Most importantly, however, they have all found ways to repurpose zombies in new and exciting ways.
