“Nut up or shut up.”
If a zombie apocalypse ever did happen, you have a feeling that it would be something like this. Professional geek, Jesse Eisenberg, is one of the few human beings alive and is trying to get across the country, where he hopes his family may still be alive.
However, when he teams up with a group of misfits, the plan changes a little. Can he survive the walking dead and get the girl all at the same time? You’ll have to watch to find out.
It’s a brilliant and refreshing film – plus, it comes with its own Bill Murray cameo, so what’s not to love?
Here are a few other movies like Zombieland.
“Do you ever think that modern life is not for you?”
What Zombieland was in the USA, Shaun of the Dead was in the UK.
Simon Pegg took the formula which had worked so well in Spaced and applied it to the big screen as he played a 30 something shop assistance who finds his life turned upside down when his girlfriend leaves him and the dead start coming back to eat the living.
His response? Grab his ex, hole up in the pub and attempt to sort everything out with a nice pint of beer. Can’t say fairer than that.
“He’s still dead, but he’s getting warmer…”
Ever thought it was time to have a zombie movie from the zombie’s point of view? The makers of this movie did.
In Warm Bodies, they ask the question – are zombies all that bad? Surely, all they need is to find the right woman and it’ll be okay.
In this film, we have an unlikely romance which has the potential to save the day and make everything good once again.
Sound good? Make sure to also have a look at these other movies similar to ‘Warm Bodies’.
“They’re partying like there’s no tomorrow, and they might be right.”
One of the great things about Zombieland is the brief cameo from Bill Murray playing himself. Indeed, there’s something compelling about seeing movie stars play themselves on screen, especially when they go into ultra-caricature mode.
This is what happens in This is the End, as a bunch of Hollywood actors find a party interrupted by the end of the world. Seth Rogan stars in this quirky, but always entertaining movie.
If this sounds like fun, make sure to also check out these other entertaining movies like ‘This Is the End’.
“Fugitive, celebrity, slacker, joker, alien.”
Again, we have Simon Pegg and Seth Rogan teaming up to spoof another staple movie – the alien conspiracy movie. Anyone who made it through the ever so serious X Files will know that if there’s anything that needs to be taken a little less seriously, it’s this genre. Thankfully, that’s what Simon Pegg and Co. do best.
So, what are some other great movies if you like Zombieland? Well, part of this film’s genius was its ability to help us see something familiar from another perspective. Here are a few bonus movies which help us do just that.
They may not cover the same sci-fi ground, but they hit all the same places.
“Evil just messed with the wrong hillbillies…”
We all know the formula: a bunch of pretty, nubile teens go into the woods, and encounter psychotic hill billies bent on their destruction.
This time, we see what happens if the reverse was true as two hillbillies trying to get away from it all for the weekend encounter a group of college students. Misunderstandings fly around like bullets – as do some bullets – and a few people inadvertently get killed. Pretty soon, Tucker and Dale find themselves desperately trying to flee the wrath of some psychotic teenagers.
“You’ll never know when you’re going to get axed…”
This British movie made little impact at the time and has been swiftly forgotten, but it’s funny, charming and has a couple of truly memorable moments.
Here, we see a group of white collar workers out for a team building exercise in Eastern Europe. Sure enough, they run into some murderous woodsmen bent on their destruction.
So, here’s our selection of the best spoof movies. There are plenty of others around, but they can be so difficult to get right. These are the movies which we think did it best, but you’re always entitled to another opinion.
