Best Zombie Movies On Netflix

Zombie films were all but dead upto The Walking Dead was announced in 2010, but like the undead zombies, the emptiness for more brought the famished friends back into the conventional. The popular AMC web series or show was campy and featured the classic, slow-moving monsters, but movies that followed shortly after titles like 28 Days Later and World War Z upped the ante.
The South Korean Halloween film Train to Busan took zombie films to a new peak in 2016. Its popularity, especially during Netflix's ramp-up of Korean programming, has flooded the genre with new amazing energy. Timing, as they talk, is all about, and the format's focus on survival elements certainly felt similar during the past days of the Covid-19 pandemic when a lot of people felt like they were living in a post-apocalyptic world, which was amazing to huge portions of the population, as viewership for names in the field skyrocketed.
Netflix curiously lacks each Train to Busan and World Battle Z in its library, but it's chockfull of another fairy fare. These are the amazing and best zombie films on Netflix.
Army of the Dead
Zack Snyder's monsters cut featuring Dave Bautista in his first crucial leading role hit Netflix around the equal time as the re-released Justice League. And the zombie heist movie reminded fans of the superhero director's debut, 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake, which was one of the most amazing things. Army of the Dead's triumph even earned it a spin-off: Army of Thieves.
Kingdom: Ashin of the North
Spinning off the South Korean zombie movies Kingdom, Ashin of the North is a prequel film that goes deeper into the queer Ashin's backstory. The period movie also explains how the dead in this film become reanimated. We won't impair that for you here, though.
A Korean gamer, checked out from the gossip while featuring with buddies, leaves his game to keep that an outbreak of zombies has taken over his block, and chaos ensues. Thanks to the amazing acting from Yoo Ah-in, the film's comedic-yet-frightening tone glitters through as he and his introverted friends struggle to survive.
Martin Freeman super heros in this zombie survival film focus more on emotional storytelling than horror elements. With small-to-no gore and a baby in tow, Cargo is more about safeguarding humanity than scaring you out of your wits; there is nothing wrong with that.
Through the episodes of vignettes, Ravenous (AKA Les Affamés abroad) tells the movies of the cast of a small, Quebecois rural community during the past days of a zombie outbreak. It won Best Canadian movie at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, magnificent audiences and voters with its brooding, meditative horror sensibility.
Occasionally, you watch a film based on a video game, and you ever thought: "Have they ever even played a video game before?" (Looking at you, Monster Hunter!) Thanks to Doom: Annihilation did its prior work. It may not be an amazing film about Marines who must destroy demon monsters on a strange planet, but Doom: Annihilation answers the simple question, "what if Doom was a movie?"
The zombies in I Am Legend may not be zombies, but their origins' vagueness means they're not zombies. Starring Will Smith in a last-man-on-earth play, I Am Legend centres on a monster that turned 99% of humanity into cannibalistic mutants harmed by sunshine. Setting out to find a healer (since he seems to be the single one who is immune), Smith and his loyal dog venture into the barren city.
Day of the Dead: Bloodline
When a Halloween franchise gets to its 10th film, it's the time to hang up the hat. Movies like Hellraiser: Judgment didn't feel that good for fans of the '80s cult classic over 40 years before, but infrequent exceptions like last year's Halloween Kills (the franchise's 12th movie) still get over $130 million at the box office. Day of the Dead: Bloodline, the third modification of Romero's celebrated Day of the Dead, falls somewhere between those very wide goalposts, but the scary, suspenseful zombie flick is still sure to scare the pants right off of you.
All of Us Are Dead (Series)
Like Battle Royale greets Train to Busan, All of Us Are Dead is the second-most famous South Korean-produced TV movie for Netflix behind Squid Game, drawing in over 361 million watching hours in just its first ten days on the live platform. With a fun monster played and a large cast of young talent, this show, yes, we are bending the rules, is a great new watch.
