A zombie outbreak in South Korea means that the passengers on the train are unsafe, and they take evasive measures to fight for survival. Even after following a basic zombie -movie storyline, this one is full of twists and turns that will keep you glued to the screen.
The group, along with a few other survivors, hide in a bunker and look for the antidote as well as fight attacking zombies. The movie borderline qualifies for a horror film, so watch out if you are one with a weak heart.
One that escalates to levels where he decides to leave his city life behind and venture into the wild. Although based on a similar premise, this is a romantic film in which the zombie eats a man’s brain and then goes on to fall in love with his girlfriend.
In Ravenous, the zombie outbreak takes place in a small village in Northern Quebec. The affected people are losing body parts and going against their own family members and anyone else that comes in their way.
Warm Bodies Featuring: Nicholas Holt, Teresa Palmer, John Markovic If you're a Z Nation fan then you'll definitely want to add Black Summer to your list as they're based within the same universe.
Daybreak is a fun post-apocalyptic zombie series that follows a group of teenage survivors as they try and make it out alive while being swarmed by hordes. It has a lot of dark humor and snappy dialogue that should make for a breezy and entertaining watch.
The show follows 13-year-old Jack Sullivan and his friends as they try to survive and fight off zombies and monsters that invade their town. It is a horror series that involves a gory, wild mixture of zombies and steampunk goodness.
The CW's zombie (loosely adapted from a comic book series) is a creative blend of comedy, romance, crime, and horror. The show is based around the life of an Olivia “Liv” Moore, a medical resident turned zombie who binge-eats brains in the morgue to prevent herself from killing innocent people.
Liz finds herself absorbing the personalities and memories of those she eats and decides to use this ability to help solve crimes. The comedy-horror series Santa Clarita Diet proves that you can add humor into the whole “walking dead” thing.
On the surface, the storyline sounds completely unremarkable, but it's the character development that really brings all the viewers to the yard. Rick Grimes is a former sheriff and the de facto leader of a small group of survivors, but it's the inexplicably sexy redneck, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reeds), who steals the show from the very beginning.
Similar to 28 Days Later, Z Nation is an action-packed safe zombie series set in a post-apocalyptic world. Although Murphy mutates into some kind of zombie hybrid, his blood contains antibodies that are humanity's last hope for survival.
Kingdom is a South Korean historical horror and the newest original zombie series to hit Netflix (and it's amazing). Set in Korea’s Medieval Jose on period, this big-budget thriller is an adaptation of the webcomic series The Kingdom of the Gods.
Although they're not the flesh-eating zombies we all know and love, the undead in this show quite literally rise from the grave and understandably freak out everyone in town. Still, this zombie installment proves that Korean cinema continues to kill in all genres.
It's a cult favorite and one of the most successful independent films, made with only a $400,000 budget. Residing in that contemporary genre of “post-horror” (smarter, smaller-budget art house screams), It Comes At Night is less an all out zombie fest and more a meditation of all those things that go bump in the dark, including images of ravenous humans.
Cargo is just an overall solid post-apocalyptic flick, similar in structure to The Road but without being (quite) as bleak. This Indonesian action comedy exists squarely within the What the FM*# Did I Just Watch category.
Set in Quebec, this Canadian horror movie hits mostly all the zombie tropes, but in a way that feels fresh. It's also (possibly) an allegory for Quebec politics, giving it that extra layer of interpretation on top of all the decayed human matter.
“Zombies” are “hungrier” in this British film based on Mike Carey's novel of the same name. Translated to “soul thieves,” this Mexican horror slasher is just good bloody fun, as well as a decent period piece on the Mexican civil war.
So it’s technically a miniseries, but it clocks in just over two hours, so we’re just going to put it here. Okay, this is a weird one and there's a good chance you may find it ridiculous and unwatchable.
(Also, there’s probably some fallacious Second Amendment reverse justification going on here; umm, why else did London stand no chance in 28 Days Later ??) So whatever your immortal fear or apocalypse kink, here are the best zombie movies to stream on Netflix right now.
Some movies like ‘Zombie land’ and ‘Shawn of the Dead’ give us a rather funny approach towards this not-so-funny situation that makes us realize that the world may not be such a bad place even when there are half-dead bloodthirsty humans all around us. Their troubles begin as there is a continent-wide power outage for over a year, and they must learn to survive on just the basics.
This story goes on to prove that humans are no more a part of the natural world and will not be able to survive safely if not for these aids. The cast of the film includes Ellen Page, Evan Rachel Wood, Callum Keith Ronnie, Max Mitchell, and Michael Edmund.
This South Korean zombie film might just be the most relatable movie on quarantine you will see in 2020. What makes this film even more relatable is not just the quarantining protocol, but the extensive use and dependency on social media and technology.
A girl, Daughter (Clara Regard), lives in a bunker and has been brought up by a robot called Mother (Rose Byrne’s voice) who is helping to repopulate the Earth and instilling the appropriate skills and values that a person must have to exist on the planet. The world of Mother and Daughter is disrupted by a Woman (Hillary Swank) who brings some jarring news.
This film spins an unusual angle on ethics, responsibility, parenting, and what it means to be out there in the world. A couple gets stuck in a time loop inside a lab where they get attacked by a bunch of mask raiders at the beginning of each day.
They have to adapt and learn to fight off these raiders and at the same time develop a technology that can act as a power source to save the world from its Judgement Day. In the near future, all of humanity is being infected by a parasitic fungus, which is transmitted through bodily fluids.

The Norwegian film ‘Cadaver’ is set in a city that is razed to the ground post a nuclear disaster, where misery is the norm. With no food, people are starved, crimes are rampant, and seeing decaying dead bodies on the street is an everyday phenomenon.
The only way to survive in that world is to “stick together.” Leonor (Gite Witt) and Jacob (Thomas Fullest) have an only daughter, Alice (Tuna Olivia Rem man), and are very protective of her. Unexpectedly, a famous theater director, Mathias Interfere (Thorburn Hard), announces an exclusive show, ‘The Hotel,’ with the promise of a good meal.

The world almost comes to an end when the robot is taken by the dictator to be turned into a Fabrication Team, which would help him create an army of war machines. Not having a soul, the Fabrication Machine decides to wipe off all living things on the planet.
The film is a combination of the found footage genre and science fiction; the story begins in 1982 when an alien ship is seen over Johannesburg. As it starts to feel more and more like a jail, an uprising begins, which results in a clash between humans and these extraterrestrial beings.
Starring Academy Award Winner Sandra Bullock, ‘Bird Box’ shows the struggle of a single mother in a post-apocalyptic world where she has to cross a treacherous river with her two kids and the biggest challenge that they face while doing all this is that they have to do all of this with a blindfold on. Well, that’s because it’s very much like the movie, ‘ A Quiet Place ‘, which tells the story of a family stuck in a post-apocalyptic world full of sound-sensitive beasts that get attracted to even the slightest of noise.
But then there are others who actually enjoyed this thriller for its amazing concept and also the parts where too many things were not revealed because they give us an insight into the protagonist’s mind who herself was trying to unravel the surrounding mysteries. ‘Extinction’ revolves around a man who does not ignore his intuition and later uses it to protect his family from an army of extra-terrestrial creatures who are trying to invade Earth.
Micheal Pena does a great job playing the lead but the ending of the movie has a twist that may either disappoint you or make you fall in love with it. ‘IO’ shows a post-apocalyptic world where the Earth has been completely destroyed to an extent where humans cannot live on it anymore.
Almost all humans have abandoned the planet and moved to Jupiter’s moon called IO. But one young girl named Sam is a scientist and believes that the planet can still be saved.
She broadcasts a message on a common frequency to get the attention of the remaining humans and that’s when a man named Micah, who is also on his way to boarding the last spaceship to IO, comes and meets her. While Micah will have to rush his way to the ship, Sam must decide whether she wants to stay or move to IO like other humans.

A very touching zombie apocalypse story of a man who looks for a new home for his newborn daughter after finding out that he may only have a few hours before he gets infected by a spreading pandemic. ‘Blame!’ shows a futuristic world where humans live a life completely integrated with cyber-technology.
But a deadly virus breaks out slowly making all the technology malfunction and steadily starts wiping out the entire population of the world. Some extreme sci-fi concepts go unexplained in the movie, so if you’re new to such films, then make sure that you have access to Google.
The world is threatened by supernatural beings that are invisible to the naked eye and destroy anyone who confronts them. The movie centers around a special-ops team that battles these unknown entities that could be spirits of the war or a government’s arms experiment that went wrong.
Spectral offers some wonderful special effects, a great plot, and some decent acting. ‘The Worthy’ is actually a good appreciable movie considering the fact that it comes from a place where cinema isn’t all that big.
The movie is about how most of the world’s population gets completely wiped clean after water sources are contaminated by deadly viruses. The only few survivors live near a trustable clean water source that later gets infiltrated by some people who don’t hold the best of intentions.
All of it turns into a violent game of survival when the remaining humans fight over the only water body that can keep them alive. And with his first international project, the filmmaker imagines and explores a dystopian world brilliantly.
The unique aspect of the film is that here, the earth has been rendered uninhabitable, and thus all the people who are alive are on a massive train. The story centers around one of the leaders of the poor people encouraging his comrades to rise in revolt against the rich and seize control of the train.
