Sugar Hill (1974), Wild Zero (1999), Juan of the Dead (2011). Everyone loves zombie films. Ever since Romero brought them to the screen in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead, they have become one of the horror genre’s favorite and most used monster. With this sub-genre flooding the market over the last 2 decades, there are a lot of good films that get buried or forgotten. Because of that, we decided to dig up three titles that we feel need more time in the spotlight. They are all three uniquely different, with more than a little social commentary in there, but all damn entertaining.
So, sit back, take some notes, and then seek these films out! Even a genre as “dead” as zombies, there are still plenty of them to see that you’ll still find damn entertaining and well worth your time.
