NoobMember28 XPJun-28-2013 1:40 AMZombie movies, how would you calssify them? You can get sci-fi zombie movies like resident evil. You can comedy zombie movies like zombieland. I think in general they most are apocalyptic ( is that a gene?) Are they a gene on there own?

ContributorMember839 XPJun-28-2013 10:29 AMI think their main genres would be horror or sci-fi, but obviously there is plenty of sub-genres. but yeah, sci-fi or horror as far as i know

LegendMember9516 XPJun-30-2013 5:31 PMThe Zombie film really is a genre all of its own in all honesty, and though there are sci fi zombie films out there, the genre itself is more of a horror genre than that of sci fi.


2KMember2674 XPJul-02-2013 8:25 AMWell I think they can be classed as sci-fi. After all a zombie outbreak is usually the result of some science (or nature) gone amok in a future world. Or some 'contagion' from Space? I see them as kind of a sci-fi-horror hybrid. I know it's a TV show, but The Walking Dead is the latest & best incarnation (IMHO) of Zombiedom & has totally raised the bar!

NoobMember28 XPJul-02-2013 11:06 PM@I totally agree with you. There always seem some secretive science project gone wrong. The walking dead is awesome. I hear that the are nearly finished film the 4th season, can't wait to see it.
