Top 10 Coolest Zombies In Film

Even though vampires seem to be the latest “monster” craze in pop culture today, we can’t forget about the always popular flesh-eating zombies. Zombie movies are a guilty pleasure for many film buffs because they’re both horrifying and hilarious at the same time. You can’t help but chuckle when you first see a horde of zombies awkwardly dragging themselves through the streets and moaning like they ate too much Mexican food.

George Romero used zombies to make social and political statements back in the 70s and 80s while films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead gave audiences a chance to laugh at the absurdity of the walking dead. There are literally thousands of zombie films that feature some very cool and unforgettable zombies. Here’s my picks for the top 10 coolest zombies in film.
