Zombies in media
The following is a list of zombie feature films which are popular or with a relatively high budget. Zombies are fictional creatures usually portrayed as reanimated corpses or virally infected human beings. They are commonly enacted as cannibalistic in nature. While zombie films generally fall into the horror genre, some cross over into other genres, such as comedy, science fiction, thriller, or romance. Distinct sub-genres have evolved, such as the "zombie comedy" or the "zombie apocalypse". Zombies are distinct from ghosts, ghouls, mummies, or vampires, so this list does not include films devoted to these types of undead.
Victor Halperin's White Zombie was released in 1932 and is often cited to be the first zombie film.
