Zombie Comedies

Zombie films have been around since movies began, but two-thirds of all zombie movies have been made since 2000. That proliferation has created subgenres, including the zombie comedy. At the top of the list:

Zombieland (2009): Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg star in this road trip comedy set in a land filled with zombies.

Shaun of the Dead (2004): Simon Pegg ("Hot Fuzz") wrote and stars in this zombie romantic comedy (hereafter referred to as zom-rom-com) about a man who wants to turn his life around, win back his girlfriend and reconcile with his mother, all while living in a town where everyone else has turned into zombies.

Army of Darkness (1992): Bruce Campbell stars and Sam Raimi directs this early zombie comedy about a man accidentally sent to the year 1300, who fights the undead as he searches for a way to get back to his future.

Dead Snow (2009): A group of vacationing medical students battle Nazi zombies. Fun!

Slither (2006): Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks star in this B-movie horror homage about an alien plague that turns small-town residents into zombies and all manner of mutant monsters.
