Zombie movies have always been popular, but just because a director throws a bunch of gory makeup on some extras and tell them to walk around with limps moaning, that doesn’t mean his movie is any good. Here is a list of ten movies that brought something else to the table, in terms of either biting social commentary or a clever, fresh take on an idea that has been resurrected again and again on the silver screen.

Night of the Living Dead: George Romero’s original masterpiece still stands out among the crowd for its insightful take on the Civil Rights Movement.

Dawn of the Dead (2004): Few zombie films capture the absolute hopelessness of the situation as does this remake. In the end, there is no escape.

Shaun of the Dead: It’s a love story disguised as a zombie film and brilliantly pulled off by Simon Pegg who manages to find the humor in zombies without losing their terror.

28 Days Later: The opening sequence of this movie plays out in near silence, making for one of the scariest car alarms in the history of cinema.

Evil Dead 2: Sam Raimi’s masterpiece uses manic tracking shots to disorient the audience and make them forget the lack of big-budget effects.

Night of the Comet: Gag me with a spoon. This film from the 80′s has aged well, even if the mall zombies we encounter have certainly not.

Zombieland: With one of the best cameos in the history of film, this tongue-in-cheek look at survival after a zombie apocalypse pokes fun at the genre while losing little of its horror.

Rec: The Spanish film that was remade into Quarantine in the United States features equal parts gore and artistry, and you’ll never look a spiral staircase in exactly the same way.

Weekend at Bernie’s 2: Sure, the original was the better movie, but this is the one that fits the category, as voodoo is used to reanimate Bernie’s corpse instead of Jonathan Silverman.

Dead Snow: Not only do you get zombies, but in this film from Norway, the zombies are also Nazis. This is one ski vacation that went horribly, horribly wrong.

Who does not love a great plague movie? Whether you are being overrun by zombies, frogs or some new government manufactured contagion, these movies thrill the sci-fi community. Here are the top ten plague movies that everyone must see.
10. Frogs from 1972, starring Sam Elliot showcases some great tragic deaths at the hands of amphibians.
9. The Plague is kids waking up after years and years and years of being comatose. Instead of going back to Tom and Jerry Read the rest of this entry »

Below, I have made a list of the best and top supporting actors in action films. It was a tough choice because both of them proved that they are worthy to be in this list.

1. Health Ledger in The Dark Knight – Ledger had always been known as a good actor in his role in various movies, which include “Brokeback Mountain and Ten Things I Hate About You However, the deceased actor proved that he is worthy to be given Read the rest of this entry »

One of the best series of sci-fi films is Friday the 13. The 80s style comes out in the manner of killings and then modernizes to adapt to the 21st century. Kane Hodder is one of the better known actors who played Jason Voorhees in the series. He played in at least three of the movies and was one of the more menacing actors who played Jason. His stocky build and slow gait made us all think twice about going outside at night.
