Anything that eats flesh is undeniably disturbing as a quick waltz through any Party Store makes clear: grotesque "humans" trying to rip your limbs off tops spooky ghosts every time out! Any one of these will do for your Halloween weekend viewing once the kids have gone to bed...

 

5.) "Re-Animator" (1985) - This film deftly mixes very black humor with a more-than-usual-amount of gory blood spillage, featuring the old mad Doctor schtick revolving around a green liquid that brings dead tissue back to life. Spoiler alert: while it's an above-average take on science gone horribly wrong (again), you may not be ready for the oral sex scene with a severed head. Score!

4.) "The Evil Dead" (1981) - Spectacularly gory, guaranteed to make you wince. Good looking college kids? Check. Cabin in the woods? Check. Demons unknowingly released? Check. Fans of dismemberment will delight in this one...

3.) "Dawn Of The Dead" (1978) - Legend has it that the special effects guy was inspired by what he witnessed during his time in Vietnam as a war journalist. Extra points for using a shopping mall as a place to hunker down during the zombie apocalypse, only to discover your survival time is running out. Not for the claustrophobic.

2.) "28 Days Later" (2002) - If you've had any bad Covid-19 dreams, then stay the hell away from this one. You've got your deserted city of London and a raging infection that's capable of turning regular non-infected humans into maniacs. Even a moron can read between the lines...

1.) "Night Of The Living Dead" (1968) - Personally, I think everything is more terrifying in black-and-white, and this classic pretty much laid down the rules for every zombie flick that's come in its wake. Toss in some themes that touch on racism, greed and paranoia, and you've the got the Grand Prize Winner right here.
