Director: Jonathan Levine | Runtime: 97 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: romance, quirky comedies, Nicholas Hoult & Teresa Palmer

Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer star as star-crossed lovers in the rom-zom-com Warm Bodies.

3. Zombieland (2009)

Zombieland (2009)
Zombieland was originally conceived as a TV show.

Director: Ruben Fleischer | Runtime: 87 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: road movies, silly humor, ensemble casts

Zombieland is a pivotal movie within the larger canon of zombie cinema. Coming out in 2009 at a time when zombie movies and shows were at a saturation point, Zombieland found great success and a lasting legacy thanks to its charismatic cast and lighthearted tone.

4. Cargo (2017)

Cargo (2017)
Cargo is based on the 2013 short film of the same name.

Director: Ben Howling, Yolanda Ramke | Runtime: 104 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: Australian movies, heartbreaking stories, movies with messages

Cargo is about a father, Andy (Martin Freeman), and his baby daughter in an apocalypse caused by an infection that appears different than what you might expect from a typical zombie movie. Andy is desperate to protect his daughter, but he knows that his time is running out.

5. #Alive (2020)

#Alive (2020)
#Alive was co-written by Matt Naylor and Cho Il-hyung, based on Naylor’s original script for the American film Alone (2020).

Director: Cho Il-hyung | Runtime: 98 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: survival horror, South Korean movies, isolation films

#Alive is about a young man trapped inside an apartment during a zombie apocalypse. The film does a fantastic job of depicted the overbearing loneliness and hopelessness of his situation before finally giving him something to live for.

6. Doom (2005)

Doom (2005)
Doom isn’t just about zombies, it’s really more about mutated monsters, but there are a number of scenes containing the reanimated dead that definitely are inspired by zombie films.

Director: Andrzej Bartkowiak | Runtime: 104 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: science fiction, action, video game movies

As far as movies based on video games go, Doom isn’t bad. If you want to see Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson shoot monsters, then Doom is absolutely for you. There’s also a memorably campy first-person action scene meant to emulate the video games the movie was inspired by, so, it has that going for it as well.

7. Ravenous (2017)

Ravenous (2017)
The original French title for Ravenous is Les Affamés, which translates to The Hungry or The Starving.

Director: Robin Aubert | Runtime: 103 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: Canadian horror, unique zombies, social commentary

Ravenous uses the well-tread tropes of the zombie-apocalypse genre as a starting point, then it adds in unique twists to the format to give the movie a life of its own. The film is about a group of people in rural Quebec doing their best to survive as zombies with odd behaviors close in on them.

8. Valley of the Dead (2020)

Valley of the Dead (2020)
Valley of the Dead is set in 1938 during the Spanish Civil War.

Director: Alberto de Toro, Javier Ruiz Caldera | Runtime: 102 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: Spanish films, war movies

Nazi zombies are kind of a cliche, but Valley of the Dead makes them entertaining. The story involves a group of wartime enemies who must work together to survive a Nazi plot to raise the dead.

9. Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2017)

Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2017)
Despite some superficial similarities to George Romero’s Day of the Dead (1985) with its setting and characters, Day of the Dead: Bloodline doesn’t have much in common with the original.

Director: Hèctor Hernández Vicens | Runtime: 90 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: very loose remakes, schlock

Day of the Dead: Bloodline succeeds best in its gore and with the look of its zombies. The rest of the movie isn’t great, but it can be entertaining for those us who enjoy not-great movies.

10. Army of the Dead (2021)

Army of the Dead (2021)
The spinoff prequel Army of Thieves (2021) is also streaming on Netflix.

Director: Zack Snyder | Runtime: 148 minutes

For viewers who enjoy: heist films, team building, Zack Snyder

Army of the Dead delivers exactly what it promises with over-the-top action, rag-tag group dynamics, and an impossible heist made possible by outlandish twists and turns. The movie might be polarizing in certain parts of the internet, but it’s great fun if you give it chance.

11. Kingdom: Ashin of the North (2021)
