The prominence of zombies seems to have expanded since George A. Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” introduced them to the horror cinema genre, much like the amount of walker blood in a typical “The Walking Dead” episode. And luckily for those who enjoy watching zombie movies on Amazon Prime Video, the service includes enough free entrails included within your Prime membership.
We’re here now to help you distinguish between the walking dead and the living dead-end, since not all zombie movies are made equal, as is the case with all categories. Amazon Prime Video provides a ton of amazing movies to select from, if you’re in the mood for existential musings, a little zombie humor, or just a load of brains flying everywhere.
“Seoul Station,” the third animated film from director Yeon Sang-ho, is apparently a prologue to his 2016 global smash “Train to Busan.” It differs significantly from the zombie movie, but it’s still a good watch. Hye-Sun, a sex worker at “Seoul Station,” escapes her difficulties only to learn that her partner wants to drag her again into her previous way of life. Just as a zombie apocalypse hits the namesake train station among the homeless population, her father is looking for her. Yeon uses the zombie narrative as a vehicle to examine how Korean culture views women, “social outcasts,” as well as the military, which lends the film more depth.

In the 2011 film Exit Humanity, Mark Gibson plays Edward Young, who is still in shock over the deaths of his spouse and child during the American Civil War. When a violent zombie apocalypse rolls out, Young swears he will get revenge on those who harmed him in order to avenge the deaths of his family.
It’s a zombie film whole and through, but it also deals with trauma and loss, making it a special zombie film to enjoy.
Due to tainted cafeteria food, a mystery illness strikes an elementary school, turning the students into bloodthirsty monsters. For the sake of survival and escape from the school, a group of instructors band together.
With Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings), Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Rainn Wilson (The Office), and Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as its leading actors, Cooties is a fun horror-comedy that also features an odd love triangle. This is a fantastic movie to see right away if zombie lovers enjoy the film Dead Rising.
A 2015 American horror movie called Savageland tackles both the found-footage and zombie subgenres. Given how it handles the original plot and the animals creating chaos on a small hamlet near the US-Mexico border, Savageland is definitely an undervalued found footage film.
Every resident of the little town is discovered dead after a massacre, with the exception of a photojournalist who is charged with their all-inclusive murder. The sheriff’s office and the local media recognize there is a serious problem with this issue after the perpetrator’s film is processed. The way the found-footage aspect renders the zombie monsters more terrifying and the plot more engaging is really what makes Savageland so distinctive.
The Night Eats The World
Nothing compares to unexpectedly interrupting a party and discovering that you are alone in a terrifying zombie-infested world. Sam, a singer, stops to retrieve his recordings from his ex-girlfriend but discovers she is hosting a few pals instead. Sam gets accidentally struck on the face by a partygoer, knocked out, and when he wakes up, his ex is a zombie and the flat is covered in blood. The turbo-zombies favored in “The Night Eats the World ” are worse than “28 Days Later” in that they don’t make any noise. Sam gradually begins to lose his mind due to his isolation, but is he the only survivor? And if he isn’t, how will he locate them if he’s scared to leave the safety of it?

They quickly learn that zombies are running amok. They argue as they drive together to his parents’ house.

The tranquil Iowan hamlet of Ogden Marsh, where The Crazies is based, has a history of odd accidents and severe diseases. After a series of murders begin to occur apparently at random, David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant), the sheriff, thinks there is something far worse going on.
As a result of a plane crash, a toxin was released into the water supply. As a result, the town was overrun by violent psychopaths, and Sheriff Dutton struggled to save his family and friends.
Director Julius Avery reimagined the zombie subgenre in 2018 and set the new horror film Overlord on the eve of D-Day. A plane carrying several men with the intention of destroying a radio transmitter in the land of their opponent is shot down before the operation can be completed, including Private Ed Boyce (Jovan Adedo). Boyce, one of the few survivors, must work to stay alive while determining his next course of action.
Boyce discovers something that is darker than they could ever anticipate, along with a small group of other survivors. Nazis experimented horribly on their troops, and as a result, they are undoubtedly no longer human. In order to stop the impending outbreak in Overlord, Boyce and the remainder of his team muck up their plans so that they can finish their purpose of creating an army of mutant and unstoppable troops. Without a question, Overlord is among the best horror films of 2018 that zombie enthusiasts may have neglected. It is also creative and terrifying.
Night Of The Living Dead
Barbra and her brother Johnny are accosted by a bizarre, massive figure while visiting a graveyard. Barbra winds up at a farm where others are sheltering after Johnny is slain. One of the members, the brave Ben, uses his ingenuity to keep the gang safe for a short time. As the residence is surrounded by ghouls that are undead and hungry for blood, tensions quickly rise. The sense of dread in this low-budget horror film is suffocating and unyielding, which is one of the main reasons it has persisted as a staple of the genre. It also has fascinating undertones about the Vietnam War as well as racial relations in the United States.
