31 Days of Halloween

31 Days of Halloween: Day #18… My Top Zombie Flicks

Hello Friends and welcome to Day #18 in my 31 Days of Halloween series!

This is a later start for me today (in posting).  This morning I was under the weather and then I had rental car issues, and just life…ya know it happens.  But I’m here as I don’t want to miss a day but I also want to take time to tend to the needs of my body.  No me…no post, right.

Today I’m sharing my top zombie flicks to watch.  With only a few new entries this list is almost the same as last years, but always good fun every Halloween.

My Take on Zombie Movies 

Zombie movies border on the real-life threat of contagion (of some sort), and the horde of the dead. (Huh…imagine that) From the funny side of these movies, with slow-moving zombies, to track-race zombies, and zombies that talk … there is no way to avoid the apocalypse. (According to the movies below)

There are hundreds of fringe zombie movies bordering on the strange, to the cult-classic and if you like the gore, there’s plenty to go around.  To make it more fun I’ve included the trailers for each movie, and the streaming link. These are fmy fav’s so I’ve watched each one at least once or more like 10 times.

Zombie Quote

Disclaimer … disclaimer

Zombie movies (animated ones being the exeption like Paranorman) are not for young audiences.  There is sex, language, gore, nudity and graphic scenes…and you get it.
