"Dear editor, have you ever watched “The Walking Dead”? If you have, you should know the popularity of zombie culture now. From zombie cons to zombie walks, zombie proms, and zombie weddings, versatile zombie-related activities and business are rising from our morbid fascination with walkers. As “The Walking Dead” thrives, so do zombie survival camps. My son recently joined that camp in Canada, and we recorded the whole process to memorize. My wife suggests that we should burn it a DVD as the birthday gift for my son. Actually, we tried many free applications that claimed to be the best Blu-ray burner, but the results came out were far from satisfactory. Therefore, we are now searching for a good Blu-ray burner. Would you please recommend one for us? Thanks a lot."

Part 3: 10 Best Zombie Themed Movies

In recent years, zombie movies have returned to the big screen since AMC’s The Walking Dead and Brad Pitt’s World War Z. Since then, multiple zombie themed movies have poped out and received quite big bundle of fans. If you want to keep yourself up at night by some zombie movies, check the below creepy-crawly zombie movies.

#1. DANCE OF THE DEAD (2008)

This movie is dumber than Harry and Lloyd rolling around in nuclear waste talking about creationism. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as Dance of the Dead doesn’t make the mistake of taking itself seriously for even a second. A light-hearted effort centred around a zombie outbreak during a high school prom and you can fill in the blanks about what happens next.

#2. ‘Night of the Living Dead’ (Remake, 1990)

This is the first remake of the classic, directed by gore effects maestro Tom Savini (probably best known as playing the role of Sex Machine in "From Dusk Till Dawn"). While this film stays true to the original script through much of the film, it does not stand up to the original. But given that the original is one of the all-time greats, this remake is still a solid zombie film when judged on it’s own merits. The changes in character and plot along the way lead to an entertaining twist in the ending. Plus, you get to see Tony Todd killing zombies in his pre-"Candyman" days.

#3. ‘Plague of the Zombies’ (1966)

This horror gem of mid-’60s British cinema is set in the English countryside, where a mysterious ailment is killing off a small village’s populace. It takes a while for the zombies to get their screen time, as the movie progresses at first like a mystery as a newly arrived doctor tries to get a handle on the situation. Once they appear, the living dead here are indeed scary, and the film has once of the best rising-from-the-grave scenes of all time. 

#4. ‘Shaun of the Dead’ (2004)

They say you always kill the thing you love. And those mad Brits, actor-writer Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright, kill their love for zombie flicks with laughs. It’s the best way to do it. When Shaun (Pegg) and his drinking mate (a priceless Nick Frost) find their North London streets invaded by zombies, there’s no recourse but to pretend they’re also undead. There’s never been a zombie movie as ferociously funny as Shaun of the Dead. In the spirit of George Romero, this movie knows that zombies shrieking "We’re coming to get you!" is still an irresistible invitation.

#5. DEAD SNOW (2009)

Continuing the trend of smart, exciting foreign zombie moves comes Dead Snow, or Død Snø in its native Norwegian. When you combine Nazis, zombies and a dash of comedy for good measure, you will only ever been onto a winner and that’s exactly the case here. Dead Snow is smartly shot, fantastically paced and doesn’t fall into the same old tropes that hamper so many similar films.

#6. ‘Land of the Dead’ (2005)

Continuing the trend of smart, exciting foreign zombie moves comes Dead Snow, or Død Snø in its native Norwegian. When you combine Nazis, zombies and a dash of comedy for good measure, you will only ever been onto a winner and that’s exactly the case here. Dead Snow is smartly shot, fantastically paced and doesn’t fall into the same old tropes that hamper so many similar films.

#7. ‘Zombieland’ (2009)

This film really translates the unabashed glee that comes from battling hordes of zombies in a video game. Taking its cues from games like Dead Rising and books like Max Brooks’ "Zombie Survival Guide," "Zombieland" is all about finding new and ridiculous ways to take down the living dead. Woody Harrelson plays the video-game-character-like role, while Jesse Eisenberg does his best Michael Cera impersonation. Although the actual theme park setting arrives a little late in the movie, it serves as a perfect playground for zombie battles. The movie also has one of the best cameos in recent memory.

#8. ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (2004)

Here’s a surprise. A big, glossy remake from director Zack Snyder that pays tribute to the spirit of George Romero’s zombiefest and then takes off at its own bloody speed. Snyder also sets the film — his first — in a shopping mall (Milwaukee, this time, not Pittsburgh), but his living dead are no staggering slowpokes. They race around like sprinters. Whatever the film lacks in originality (plenty), it makes up for in zesty humor and nonstop gut-ripping. And make sure to watch the epilogue.

#9. ‘World War Z’ (2013)

Now, if you’ve read the Max Brooks-penned novel of the same name you likely recognized nothing — nothing — about the movie. Despite a completely different plot, characters, and zombies that couldn’t be less recognizable, the movie does a great job of capturing the global impact of a fast-spreading zombie pandemic. The sheer massive scale of action scenes are unmatched in zombie movie history.

#10. ‘Deadgirl’ (2008)

By far the most disturbing zombie film on the list, "Deadgirl" is a completely different and original take on the zombie movie. Where some films try to get across the point that it’s not the zombies who are the monsters, but humans themselves, no movie really pulls it off like this one. The film delves into the deranged psyches of bored suburban teenage boys, and exposes the different levels of depraved morals among them. This is not a film to watch on date night.
