7 Best Zombie Movies on Netflix 2022: The zombie: Devoid of regret or compassion, driven by a single appetite, and nearly hard to extinguish permanently.
Since their debut in films in the 1930s, there have been periods when it seemed as if we’d never see another zombie film.
Then there are eras when you couldn’t stick your arm out at a multiplex without a shambling ghoul chomping on your arm. And, because we’ve been feasting for the past ten years or so, we’re taking a huge bite with our list of the Best Zombie Films You Must See!
Despite being fearful of an impending apocalypse, complete with zombies and all, it isn’t a stretch to say that the west, particularly the Americans, has always been infatuated with zombies.
These brain-eating savage zombie creatures are rather entertaining to watch. Notably, the earliest zombie films appeared around the same time as science fiction and fantasy films.
1. Izla (2021)
‘Izla,’ directed by Barry Gonzalez, is a zombie horror film starring Paolo Contis, Archie Alemania, Beauty Gonzalez, and Isabella Daza, among others. The film revolves around a gang of bloggers who are on a quest to discover a fabled island for their next adventure.
In order to achieve their aim, the young adventurers enlist the services of two brothers to accompany them on their journey, completely unaware of the deadly truths they will uncover.
When they unintentionally discover the island, they are confronted with a series of sinister secrets.
2. Ladronas de Almas (2015)
‘Ladronas de Almas,’ a Spanish-language film directed by Juan Antonio de la Riva, is set in Mexico during the Mexican Civil War.
The plot of the film centers around a group of treasure-hunting insurgents who break into a plantation house where only the owner and his vulnerable daughters live.
Only the daughters, the three Cordero sisters, are not helpless, but ferocious assassins backed up by a swarm of zombies that serve as the first line of defense when people arrive looking for the hidden treasure.
The film avoids becoming too repetitious thanks to an interesting, fast-paced plot.
3. Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018)
‘Day of the Dead: Bloodline,’ an action-horror (comedy) at first, and perhaps one of the worst zombie films ever made, is unique in that it does not refer to the creatures like zombies, instead using the term “rotters” frequently.
The film opens with Zoe, a young medical student who is attending a party when the so-called rotter’s attack.
The rotters don’t bite her, but they have infected and attacked the rest of the population. She quickly discovers that rotters have invaded the entire city and its streets.
She’s been assigned to a refugee camp that shelters both partially infected and entirely sane survivors, and she begins working as a doctor there, treating minor ailments while searching for a cure.
The rotters have returned to the refugee camp five years later to confront her and her deep dark secrets. The film ‘Day of the Dead: Bloodline’ has been panned for being dull and formulaic. At your own risk, watch it!
4. Army of the Dead (2021)
‘Army of the Dead,’ directed by Zack Snyder, is a zombie heist film starring Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, and Ana de la Reguera.
When the undead takes over Las Vegas, the city is surrounded on all sides, and the population evacuates to other states.
When the government chooses to bomb Sin City to kill the undead, wealthy tycoon Bly Tanaka is concerned about the $200 million he has stashed in an impenetrable casino vault.
To get his money back, he hires a mercenary outfit to pull off a seemingly impossible heist just 96 hours before the detonation.
5. ParaNorman (2012)
‘ParaNorman,’ a dark fantasy comedy horror film directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler, is a dark fantasy comedy horror film. Norman Babcock, a young child from Blithe Hollow, is the protagonist of the novel.
The small city was cursed by a witch centuries ago and is now suffering the consequences. Norman, however, has the unique ability to communicate with the dead, something many people are unaware of.
As a result, when his uncle asks him to join in an annual rite to safeguard their city, the protagonist gladly agrees.
Norman has no choice but to figure out the brutal realities of the curse in order to protect his loved ones and the residents of Blithe Hollow if things don’t turn out the way he had hoped.
6. #Alive (2020)
South Koreans are known for producing excellent zombie films with terrifying, fast-moving, and ferocious zombies. ‘#Alive’ is the latest in a long line of excellent undead films from South Korean directors.
‘#Alive’ follows a lone gamer trapped in his apartment with little food, limited water, no weapons, no way out, and a swarm of hungry zombies threatening to burst down his front door.
The gamer is about to give up the battle because he believes his entire family is dead, but his mind is changed when he notices another person – a girl – just across his window in a neighboring building, and a weird, unusual connection develops.
‘#Alive’ is a unique take on the zombie genre, incorporating contemporary themes (such as social networking) as plot devices to help flesh out (pardon the pun) the story.
The gamer’s love with the girl in the flat across the street is so wonderful that you’re pulling for them, hoping they don’t turn into zombie chow.
7. Ravenous (2017)
The zombies in this visually stunning flick aren’t completely brain-dead. In Robin Aubert’s ‘Ravenous,’ the zombies are sophisticated enough to speak with one another.
The movie follows a small group of survivors in a secluded village in upstate Quebec as they attempt to flee the flesh-eating creatures and reach a safe haven in the woods.
‘Ravenous’ is a captivating and subtle French-language drama that will captivate audiences from beginning to end. The picture is mostly silent, relying largely on edgy, terrifying images to create a sense of dread. ‘Ravenous’ feels fresh despite the fact that the storyline and premise aren’t new.
