The Mummy (1932)
Mummy is clearly a living dead. In my books it's not a zombie. Because it dosn't eat its victims. It also too intelligent to be brain eating undead.

Mummy is not a zombie and many movie wacthers know that!

These body snatchers films are also consider to be zombie flicks. There is many of them and not of those got nothing do with undead. Outer space alien taking control of human is not a zombie action. It's kind of breeding same way that most of zombie films, but its not one of them!

The Fog (1980)
John Carpenter's The Fog isn't zombie film. It's more like a ghost strory. Villains are some kind of pirate ghost or something. This movie has a very good atmosphere and it's enjoy to watch. Still there is no zombies!

This one is more difficult to express. I would say that they are more like infected maniacs than zombies. I know the line between them is thin. Still consider that this is not zombie film. So do its director Umberto Lenzi too.

Lucio Fulci is well-known of his zombie films. This is not one of them. It's more like a haunted house type of movie mixed with some pretty sleazy gore and bad acting.

The Evil Dead (1981)
They are not zombies. They are Demons. How hard it's to understand. I think very hard. Many people would say that this is a zombie film. People in this film didn't die. They just kind a turn into demons. You have to be dead before you can turn zombie!

Re-Animator (1985)
In this case I have to say that they are almost zombies. It's hard to tell what they are. But I think they are no zombies. Or the rules have been broken very well. Sure they are living dead and they like to eat you. Resurrected by a medicine isn't zombie in my books.

From Beyond (1986)
Another Stuart Gordon film. After Re-Animator this more far of a zombie films. It's soulmate is those body snatcher flicks. No zombies, but some kind of after life still.

Another Carpenter movie. It's hard to tell what's it about. Think it's more like an exorcist or omen kind of movie than zombie film. There is those street bums, who could be zombies. Still I think they are just a bums on a street.

Pet Sematary (1989)
Pets rising from the dead. Almost worth of zombie rules. I still doesn't count it for a one. Because in my opinion zombies are only human. More or less those pets are almost harmless to a human.

Oh.. well there is that little boy. He sure is some kind of undead. Zombie no. Too intelligent to be one of them.

28 Days Later (2002)
This one realy has a two opinions. Mine is that it's not zombie film. They are more like infected people like in Nightmare City or Rabid. I know that it's only my opinion, but those maniacs are not zombies!

Deals with same problem that 28 Days Later. Even more like it's hard to tell are they zombies or not. Because it's a remake of classic zombie film of George A. Romero. Yet I'm not quite sure, but I must say that they are not zombies.

Zombies are living dead, but there is still some rules to follow. Those rules are more often to be broken. So on this list I tried to solve mystery of zombies and put some sense on the genre differences.

I think that in 28 days later they´re not zombies!
they were never dead actually, they´re just sick
Posted: 7 years, 6 months ago at Mar 22 17:53
You could add I Am Legend to that list

I would have to disagree with Dawn of the Dead because people die right before they turn into zombies, and they do like to eat non-zombie people.
Posted: 7 years, 4 months ago at Apr 29 3:57
Dawn of the Dead Remake is a zombie movie in my opinion. Just because the infection is more selective, doesn't mean they are not zombies. MY rules are: No real cognitive powers, no supernatural powers (other than returning to life), and violent.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at May 25 16:46
I agree that most of these are alien, infected, undead, demons, etc.
But the Dawn of the Dead remake are clearly zombies, even if they're running or not.

Also, Nightmare City sucks.
Zombi 3 AKA Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 got the same kind of radioactive-ghouls, the difference is that it's a really enjoyable movie, while Nightmare City is just crap.
