Before discussing zombie movies, let’s try to understand what zombies really are. Are they people who have returned from the dead? Or are they people who have lost control over their bodies due to an external entity that has overtaken their minds, be it a virus or an alien? Are they corpses that are alive? Or are they alive people who are dead? Well, turns out that all of these are descriptions of zombies, and none of them are unjust explanations. That is why we have different kinds of zombie movies at our disposal, and some of the best in the genre are available on Hulu.
6. Zombie Town (2023)
Every once in a while, the heart wants to watch a movie that makes no sense. Directed by Peter Lepeniotis, ‘Zombie Town’ is a horror comedy that offers just that. The town of Carverville turns into a land of the undead when a zombie movie premiere turns the townsfolk into zombies, thanks to the film reel that has cast some kind of spell. Now, it is up to teenagers Amy and Mike to find the filmmaker and rid the town of the curse before time runs out. While horror can be said to be much less than comedy, if you are looking to spend time watching a funny movie that deliberately takes a dig at zombies, this movie will suffice. The cast includes Madi Monroe as Amy, Marlon Kazadi as Mike, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Brenna Coates, Henry Czerny, and Callan Potter. You can stream the movie here.

2. 28 Weeks Later (2007)
More than “zombies,” it is the word “infected” that sounds more horrifying, don’t you think? In this Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directorial, we have yet another attack of the Rage virus that occurs six months after it first hit London in ‘28 Days Later’ (2002), of which this movie is a standalone sequel. The city had been quarantined, and refugees were returning, but the adventure of two kids sets off a chain of events that brings about the outbreak and, by extension, the attack of the “infected.” The stellar cast of the movie includes Jeremy Renner, Robert Carlyle, Imogen Poots, Rose Byrne, Idris Elba, Harold Perrineau, and Catherine McCormack. You can watch the movie here.
