4. Dawn of the Dead (2004 film)

5. The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

6. Shaun of the Dead

7. Rec (2007)

With its quick pacing, brutal jump scares, and unpredictable ending, REC does an admirable job of modernizing the shambling ghouls introduced in George A. Romero’s Living Dead series.

Amanda Waltz ( Rotten Tomatoes comments)

Found footage zombie horror at its best, “[REC]” takes an interesting approach at the idea by sending in one camera man and a reporter as they follow a group of firemen called to a scene, only to be quarantined in the apartment building with unexplainable attacks by humans. Much eerier than the American remake titled “Quarantine”, Manuela Velasco, an actual reporter from Spain, plays the lead part much more convincing than her counterpart in the American version, played by Jennifer Carpenter. With a mostly predictable plot structure, the execution of the scares are key and although “[REC]” isn’t perfect and often hits many of the same notes, the overall product is alluring enough to be memorable, especially in an exclamation point ending with some reveals that are left out of the American iteration, including some gut wrenching makeup and prosthetic design. For a found footage foreign horror film, “[REC]” is at the top of the list.

Christopher H ( Super Reviewer on Rotten Tomatoes)

8. Night of the Creeps (1986)

Night of the Creeps is a classic in every sense of the word.

Rotten Tomatoes

9. The Night Eats the World (2018)

The calm, almost sedentary pace of the film and its abundant visual findings justify a production that is not destined to revolutionize post-apocalyptic cinema, but that puts its grain of sand thanks to the great interpretations

10. Juan of the Dead (2011)

11. One Cut of the Dead (2017)
