The latest buzz on the internet has been a wide-spread panic of the imminent zombie apocalypse. Though the panic is completely uncalled for, it never hurts to be ready. Here are five great movies to prepare you for slaying zombies — in style.
A fun, comic-book take on a classic scenario, this movie is both action-packed and hilarious. It even gives you tips on how to best stay alive during a zombie attack. (And features the ever-lovely Emma Stone — bonus!)
2. Resident Evil
As the first zombie movie I ever saw (or remember seeing), Resident Evil will always hold a special place in my heart. The premise is based off a popular video game series, and the plot reflects that — in a good way. Plus, Milla Jovovich manages to kick butt in a skimpy red dress and leather boots, and looks fabulous, even after fighting zombies to the death.
3. Shaun of the Dead
This British comedy manages to mix the adventure of a zombie movie in with dry English wit perfectly. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and pee your pants in fright. And, really, there is nothing funnier than watching Simon Pegg outrun the living dead.
4. 28 Days Later
Not your typical zombie movie, 28 Days Later gives a fresh take on an old story. With a great plot and never-ending suspense and action, this movie is a definite addition to any zombie movie collection.
5. Dawn of the Dead
The undisputed best movie of the classic Romero trilogy, Dawn of the Dead takes the lead as the best zombie movie ever made. Terrifying, suspenseful, intriguing — nothing will better prepare you and your friends for the looming apocalypse than this.
