Top 10 Comedy Movies Featuring Zombies

1 2

Every movie enthusiast knows that the productions featuring zombies went practically dead and buried in the 1990s. Back then, the public became so oversaturated with the ideas of the films featuring zombies that they couldn’t be bothered to watch yet another horror movie with these creatures, ever again. Well, that didn’t take long and the living dead took the movie industry by storm once more in recent years.

Also, they became central characters in another type of productions; the comedies. We have to admit that zombies and comedies constitute a pretty interesting combination that hits the spot. Following is a top ten of the comedies featuring zombies that every “zomedy” fan should check out:

 

1. Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Featuring Simon Pegg, Shaun of the dead is the most representative movie of its genre, combining an incredible zombie carnage, a romantic story and the notorious British conversational wit. The story revolves around Shaun, the main character who decides to turn his life around by reconciling with his step father and winning back his ex-girlfriend, all with the help of his chubby friend. While Shaun tries to win back the most important women in his life, he also has to deal with the entire community of his small town who are now zombies.

 

2. FIDO (2007)

The plot of this “zom com” takes place in 1950’s in suburbia America; you know the period of the white fence houses, soldiers coming home from the war and the times when prejudice ruled the land. Isn’t that the perfect time to have a zombie servant? In order to avoid any spoiler, it suffices to say that FIDO is the hilarious and adventurous counterpart of classical movies featuring a boy and his best friend the dog).

 

3. American Zombie (2008)

While the movie could easily create the impression of a faux documentary at first glance, it is actually among the best zomedies ever released. The storyline revolves around the daily lives of a quiet community near Los Angeles. As you probably guessed, the zombie community can talk, act and think just like the people with whom they are trying to co-exist. Oh, do expect the whole eating human issue.

 

4. Creatures from the Pink Lagoon (2006)

Even though some felt offended by what they perceived as an insult to the gay community, the truth is that the story behind Creatures from the Pink Lagoon is actually well written. The plot starts with a group of friends who want to celebrate a birthday party at a secluded cottage. However, due to a “small” incident, their party is interrupted by an outbreak of zombies that come from a nearby restroom, which is frequented by gay people. You can imagine the dialogues and the actions.

 

5. Dead and Breakfast (2004)

As the name of the zomedy suggests, the story takes place at a bed and breakfast where a group of friends heading to a wedding decide to spend the night. However, they accidentally unleash some evil spirits that turn the entire town’s population into zombies. The strong cast and the ongoing musical narrations represent two of the strongest points of the movie.
