Good zombie movies that I've missed in the last 3 years...

Post by the_klenzer » Tue Oct 30, 2012 11:59 pm

Well, ever since I had my first kid 3 years ago, my watching of zombie movies has basically slid to zero. Fortunately, I've clawed back a few free hours a week to start catching up. Can you guys give me some of the best... ok, wait, wait... maybe "best" is too strong a word... how about... can you give me the least crappy zombie movies you've seen in the last 3-4 years? If there's any outstanding ones, love to know about them. I'll even take apocalyptic type stuff.

I need to get my zombie back on. :)

Thanks!

"Shaun Of The Dead" - the MOST accurate documentary on surviving the zombie apocalypse ever made!

Great movie plus my wife started getting into zombie / apocalypse movies after watching Shaun Of The Dead.

28 Days Later & 28 Weeks Later are also good.

The Crazies and Dead Snow are two recent zombie films that often sail under people's radar. There's always the latest Resident Evil movie although that's a completely different flavor. Whatever this one is called, I think it's Resident Evil Part XXIV, Stay Dead Already! Technically speaking, The Cabin in The Woods is a zombie movie and is quite good.

Book of Eli is worth watching if you are indeed willing to branch out to the post apocalyptic theme.

You guys know Shaun Of The Dead is almost 10 years old, right? ;)

Walking Dead has been my only real zombie fix, I'm 100% up on that.

Getting cabin in the woods and dead snow tonight.

"The Dead" set in Africa pretty good.
"Remains" kinda interesting take, enjoyable
"Stakeland" technically vampires but more along the lines of a zombie flick, suprisingly good.

For the PAW related thing:

Carriers

I am tempted to try the movie "Deadheads", ZPAW from the POV of ... Zombies.

That was great.

La Horde (French with English subtitles) is probably the best, recent zombie movie I've seen in years.

Phase 7 (Argentinian, Spanish with English subtitles) was fucking wonderful. It's not a true zombie movie, it's about a couple trapped in their apartment building during a deadly flu outbreak.

The Signal (American) was decent. It's more of a "rage virus" type movie than a traditional zombie movie.

Aaah! Zombies!! (American) was cute. Might be a good one to watch with the missus.

I'm still a fan of the remade Dawn of the Dead, something is entertaining about people using a mall as a BOL.

My favorite is definitely Zombieland though, it was the staple movie that we watched while we were deployed to Afghanistan.
Amanda (my wife): "Gunner do you know what zombies are?"
Gunner (my 4 year old): "Bad guys."
Me: "And what do we do when we see zombies?"
Gunner: "Kill them?"
Me: "That's right, we kill them...again."

Watched Cabin in the Woods, very fun and Whedon-ey.

Have Phase 7 on right now while typing. Pretty good!

Stakeland is tomorrow night.

Zombieland and Land of the Dead would be my two picks for recent years. I haven't seen all of the others mentioned though. Shaun of the Dead was of course great but not new.

Juan of the Dead was one -I- watched in recent years which I loved, but I don't know how old the actual movie is.

Agreed, Juan, Shaun, and Zombieland are awesome.

Ok I must suck at paying attention, because I don't have a kid and I don't recognize half of these. See of Netflix actually has any of them though...

Great little flick

REC 2 is pretty darn good. It's not a true "zombie" movie - more of a demonic-possession-that-turns-folks-zombie-like movie. Head shots are required, so it kinda keeps with the theme. If you can deal with subtitles, it's worth watching.
