Train to Busan is one of the best zombie movies I have ever come across. Many zombie movies lack either a decent plot, decent acting or both but this has it all. Exciting, thrilling, great acting, great characters and just a mix of all the best zombie movie elements. The zombies are more like the zombies from World War Z in their abilities and movement, the acting is as good as any award winning drama or thriller and the action is like a decent Dwayne Johnson movie all with a decent plot to tie it all together. The Plot is easy to follow, martial law is declared in Korea as a viral outbreak engulfs the country, but passengers on the Train to Busan successfully fight off the infection and must now fight to survive. The Best Zombie movie since Shaun of The Dead. This film is available on most Netflix worldwide.

One Cut of The Dead is the first decent response to Shaun of The Dead in the Zombie Comedy niche. The plot is unique, whilst they are shooting a zombie film they are suddenly attacked by real zombies leaving opportunity for loads of great comedy moments. The movie was also shot as a One Cut, so kind of like 1917 recently. The whole thing is fun, original, funny and entertaining so make sure you watch it all the way through.

I Am A Hero is a popular Japanese Zombie Apocalypse movies, and much better than many of the western Zombie movies over the last 2 decades. The movie was based on a Manga comic so straight away expect some interesting concepts and plots. The main character is a cowardly individual amongst the zombie apocalypse and follows him with various other characters as they try to survive. The movie has a lot of excitement and does a lot of things right such as the gore, the zombies, the humour and the characters making it a very good zombie movie.

In a world overrun by zombies, military personnel and survivalists live in an underground bunker while they seek a cure. This movie is awful, i have put it on this list as it keeps coming up on my Netflix and want to make sure that you avoid it if you are looking for a good zombie movie.

After being infected in the wake of a violent pandemic and with only 48 hours to live, a father struggles to find a new home for his baby daughter. A brilliantly original zombie apocalypse story with a very different feel than all other zombie movies, although nowhere nowhere near one of Martin Freeman’s best films. As a whole this movie has a lot more heart and emotion than the average zombie flick an is probably for an audience who prefer a little more artistic style to the movies they watch. The unique style does work and it is a very good watch.

6. Land of The Dead

Personally I really enjoyed this movie despite the average rating. Set in the future where a Zombie apocalypse happened decades ago and civilisation has partially rebuilt in protected cities and procedures for all possibilities. However, what was not anticipated was the idea of zombies evolving in intelligence (though subtlety) to the point that they are able to over run defences and send humanity back into chaos in a fight for survival. Lot of great action and building zombie killing tanks from busses makes this film a great action zombie movie.

College friends find their weekend of sex and debauchery ruined when deadly zombie beavers swarm their riverside cabin. Not the greatest movie and really a more of a comedy spoof. However, as it is suppose to be silly then it is bad enough to be fun and enjoyable. If you like movies such as Scary Movie or Haunted House then yes this is worth a watch but not the best comedy zombie movie on this list.

8. Ravenous

In an isolated rural community of Quebec, Canada, some inhabitants attack other people, hungry for human flesh. A few survivors gather and go deep into the forest to escape them. Firstly this is a french language zombie movie, so get ready for subs. It is a much quieter and slower zombie movie with lots of tension build-up. Very different to the classic baseball and splat type action than most go for. It does work but may be a case of what you are looking for in a zombie movie.

After a zombie apocalypse spreads from a London prison, the UK is brought to its knees. The spread of the virus is temporarily contained but, without a cure, it’s only a matter of time before it breaks its boundaries. The movie has some good action but as a whole is nothing new, poorly executed and just not the greatest zombie flick I have seen. There are plenty more better zombie movies worth watching on Netflix before this one.

Tells the tale of slacker, Nipis who becomes a reluctant hero when a zombie outbreak robs him of the only life he knows. Another bit of a flop, if it pops up on your Netflix when looking for a zombie movie then again you could probably skip. It is also worth noting it is a comedy movie but probably the worst zombie comedy on this list. Not scary, not much of a horror.

11. The Cured

In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. One of the few zombie movies where its the rebirth of civilisation rather than the apocalypse. Other movies like this are “In The Flesh” and “Warm Bodies” where we see the end of the end. It is a good film as a stand alone drama however it is probably not what most are looking for when looking for a zombie flick. usually zombie fans are looking for an action packed apocalyptic story which this is not.

12. Peelers

A small town strip club owner must defend her bar, her strippers and her life when violent infected patrons show up on the final closing night and all hell breaks loose. Another crazy comedy spoof for our list, best way to describe this movie is a naff version of “From Dusk Til Dawn” but still fun and enjoyable in some ways. Expect lots of cheesy comedy ridiculous kill scenes and blood. Maybe its a little under rated as many spoofs are, as long as you know what to expect it can be a fun film.

A television reporter and her cameraman are trapped inside a building quarantined by the CDC, after the outbreak of a mysterious virus which turns humans into bloodthirsty killers. Not many zombie movies are suspenseful and jump scary which makes this a little more unique. It is less like a zombie movie but more of a jump scare like grave encounters, being locked in a building in the dark surrounded by horror. A little under-rated due to the original being worth a watch but not if you are solely looking for a zombie apocalypse film.

14. Rise of The Zombie

The lowest rated zombie movie on Netflix and way to odd. Basically a man slowly turns into a zombie, not much else to say. Reviews are terrible everywhere. Also worth noting this is a Hindi movie.

15. Kingdom (Honorable Mention )

This is not a movie but I have recently finished watching this entire series and I am waiting for the next season. I had to include it as I think any horror and zombie fan would appreciate this and is widely available on Netflix worldwide. This is Koreans answer to The Walking Dead, an epic zombie apocalypse series.

The show is set in the imperial age (roughly) so it is not a case of guns but swords spears and the occasional cannon and musket. An outbreak of some form of disease where the infected come out only at night to terrorise and destroy. As the hoard makes its way through one Korean village at a time (whilst swelling in numbers) and officials do their best to try and contain it. With many more twists, turns and challenges this series is very entertaining and easy to binge on.  The Zombies (or whatever you wish to call them) are one of the most chilling in any zombie horror in the way they run and then flop down and hide themselves during the day.
