We have compiled a list of disaster films with zombies for you here. We introduce you to 7 films in which the undead create an apocalyptic end-time atmosphere.
Whether walkers, undead or walkers – zombies appear in many series and films with different names and characteristics.
Most of the time they are hungry, mindless murder machines, hunting down the few surviving people and making the world unsafe as a current threat, often in hordes.
We have put together a few disaster films for you in which the characters have to prove themselves in a world where zombies lurk around every corner.
The 2009 horror-comedy follows a group of survivors in search of a zombie-free theme park called Pacific Playland. They encounter all sorts of obstacles and have to adhere to certain “rules of survival”.
This is what the IMDb ratings say: On IMDb, the series has 7.6 out of 10 stars from 606,993 user ratings.
Zombieland scores above all with its pitch-black humor and satirical implementation of the genre. The “rules of survival” in Zombieland include sufficient cardio and loosening up exercises when it comes to escaping or fighting the zombies.
Fun fact: The dog that Woody Harrelson plays with in a flashback scene belongs to actress Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) (via IMDb).
2. World War Z
In World War Z, a zombie epidemic breaks out seemingly out of nowhere. In the middle of the action are former UN employee Gerry Lane and his family, who have to watch as the city is overrun by a horde of undead. To protect his loved ones, Lane must return to his job and find the cause of the disaster.
This is what the IMDb ratings say: On IMDb, the film has 7.0 out of 10 stars from 702,152 user ratings.
World War Z impresses above all with a good portion of action. The zombie hordes race quickly through the area, leading to spectacular chases and exciting moments.
This also begins immediately with the outbreak of the epidemic, where the situation escalates in a flash and you, as a spectator, are immediately thrown into the action.
Fun fact: The ending of World War Z was reshot again and cost a whopping $25 million.
