TEN OF THE GREATEST ZOMBIES OF ALL TIME.....SO FAR


Zombie movies are my favourite thing ever. Out of all the genres in horror, zombie movies appeal to me for various reasons. A lot of it, I guess, is to do with seeing how people cope with their life, as they know it, crashing down around them.

Helplessly watching your friends and family either commit suicide or turn..... wondering when you will be next.
