  • The Forest of Hands and Teeth (and the rest of the books) by Carrie Ryan: The ULTIMATE zombie books, IMO. This is what got me hooked.
  • Rot & Ruin, and soon to be released Dust & Decay, by Jonathan Maberry: I loved Rot & Ruin, too. I think it’s more of a boy book than the Ryan books, so that’s something to consider.
  • World War Z by Max Brooks: A different kind of Zombie book — kind of a fictional documentary with interviews. Very interesting.
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin: Loved this one. A very long book that just sucked me in and wouldn’t let go.

Movies and TV Shows

Recommended by Kari @ A Good Addiction:

  • Resident Evil: Badass chick that blows zombies up.
  • Shaun of the Dead: For when you like your zombies with a side of humor.
  • Dawn of the Dead: Because if zombies really can move fast, the zombie apocalypse is not going to be good.

Recommended by Jen @ A Book and a Latte:

  • I Am Legend: This movie freaked me out… I had a hard time watching the end and had to close my eyes and cover my ears. No joke!

Recommended by April @ Good Books and Good Wine:

  • 28 Days Later: Oh my goodness legit scary times ahead.
  • Shaun of the Dead: When you are done being scared and want to laugh, I recommend this clever satire/homage of the zombie genre

Recommended by Jessica @ I Read to Relax:

  • Shaun of the Dead: A cult classic with a bumbling hero.
  • The Walking Dead: A fantastic TV show about the survivors of a zombie apocalypse.
  • The Resident Evil Series: Movies based on a video game with a heroine who wakes up in a scientific facility after a viral outbreak that creates zombies.
  • Zombieland: A funny movie about survivors on a roadtrip in a zombie-infested world.

Recommended by Annette @ Annette’s Book Spot:

  • Dawn of the Dead: An absolute classic — must see movie. The original, please.
  • The Hills Have Eyes: OK. Maybe not a strictly zombie movie, but close enough. And very cheesy — it’s a good one, if you haven’t seen it.  Once again, the original, please.


Recommended by Annette @ Annette’s Book Spot:

  • Thriller by Michael Jackson: I don’t usually recommend music, but this one came to mind immediately.

  • Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion is amazing, I absolutely loved it.

    I’m a bit of a zombie fiend so you can imagine how please I am that they’re all the rage.
    Speaking of Rage… lots of love for 28 Days and, of course, Shaun of the Dead.

    Love this post, going to add a few of the books to my TBR list!

  • I’ve heard great things about Warm Bodies — and I’ve got it reserved at my library! =)

    High five to Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, and The Walking Dead! Cannot WAIT for next season!

  • The Walking Dead Rocks! Can’t wait til they make a movie or series out of Jeffrey Thomas Crooms’ zombie scifi novel The United States Of Armageddon Special Edition. Mosquitoes and corrupt politicians and zombies…oh my!
