EW's Horror Quintessentials: The 5 best zombie movies

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we’ll post our top picks from one specific group—say, vampire movies or slasher flicks—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re ready to talk zombies.

Most zombie movies start the same way: A mysterious virus spreads, causing the dead to come back to life as flesh-eating monsters. From there, the same questions often arise: Will the zombies be able to run? Can they be killed with blunt-force trauma to the head? Where will small group of survivors hide until the cavalry arrives? Add in a handful of disturbing images of zombies eating intestines, and you’ve got a classic undead story. READ FULL STORY

George Romero's son crowdsourcing 'Night of the Living Dead' prequel

We know what happened after the events depicted in George Romero’s classic 1968 zombie movie, Night of the Living Dead, thanks to the director’s string of sequels, including 1978′s Dawn of the Dead and 1985′s Day of the Dead. But what happened before Barbra and Johnny made that doomed cemetery visit?

It is a question Romero’s son, Cameron, hopes to answer in a Night of the Living Dead prequel called Origins, an Indiegogo campaign for which was launched today. The younger Romero is hoping to raise $150,000 for a film which, according to the official synopsis, will detail how a brilliant scientist “strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.”

Matt Smith joins cast of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'

Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has nabbed a role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel. Smith will play wealthy wife-seeker Mr. Collins opposite Lily James, who stars as Liz Bennett.

The horror-comedy— based on Grahame-Smith’s zombie-infiltrated version of the Jane Austen classic and directed by Burr Steers (17 Again)— also features Douglas Booth, Sam Riley, Jack Huston and Bella Heathcote. The film has had a rocky journey to the big screen, originally to be directed by David O. Russell—who ended up co-writing the screenplay— and cycling through a slew of directors before securing Steers, who also co-wrote the screenplay.

Smith recently finished filming a Terminator movie, and stars in Ryan Gosling’s Lost River, coming out early next year. The movie, a collaboration between Cross Creek Pictures, Darko Entertainment, and Handsomecharlie Films, is set for a 2015 release date. [The Hollywood Reporter]

'Freakin' disgusting!': How they created the zombies for horror film 'The Battery'

The-Battery

Creating movie zombies is dirty, and possibly vomit-inducing, work. That’s the main takeaway from the exclusive slightly NSFW clip you can see below, which details how the folks responsible for the terrific microbudget horror film, The Battery, made their undead.

Scream Factory to release acclaimed zombie film 'The Battery' on Blu-ray and DVD

The-Battery.jpg

My favorite horror film of 2013 which almost no one saw? That would have to be The Battery, a micro-budgeted tale of two bickering ex-baseball players trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. Written and directed by the magnificently bearded Jeremy Gardner – who also stars alongside Adam Cronheim — the result is a reminder that you don’t need a whole lot of money to make an atmospheric and character-rich undead flick. In fact, all you really you need is $6,000 and a baseball bat (okay, and a ball and a glove).

Marvel's Phase Three: 'Doctor Strange,' 'Iron Man 4,' 'Hulk,' 'Inhumans' or 'Runaways' on horizon? -- EXCLUSIVE

Big things happen in threes.

With Iron Man 3 heading into its third weekend, now is the perfect time to look ahead to what Marvel Studios may be planning for its own third act — the evolving multi-movie slate known as Phase Three.

Phase One for the comic book studio was the series of films that culminated in last year’s The Avengers. Phase Two begins with Iron Man 3, and will build to Avengers 2 in 2015, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy in between.

The question that still hasn’t been resolved, even internally at the studio… What comes next?

'Warm Bodies' trailer 2: The lighter side of a zombie apocalypse

Yes, Warm Bodies was produced by Summit Entertainment — but that doesn’t mean this paranormal romance, an adaptation of Isaac Marion’s novel, is just a Twilight mad lib that trades vampires for zombies. Warm Bodies is a horror comedy, with an accent on the comedy — think Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland, two films to which it seems to owe a debt of gratitude.

The flick stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as R, a reanimated teen who’s slowly shuffling through unlife until he meets Julie (I Am Number Four‘s Teresa Palmer), a blond hottie who also happens to be an accomplished zombie fighter. Sparks fly, and soon R begins to feel reanimated. Could love be the cure for zombification?

Check out the movie’s second trailer — featuring a truly excellent sight gag involving an evolution poster — below. Warm Bodies debuts in theaters February, making it a godsend for quirky guys and girls who are looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day date.

'Warm Bodies' poster: Are sexy zombies the new sexy vampires? -- EXCLUSIVE

The Twilight saga ends with the release of Breaking Dawn — Part 2 this Friday, but that doesn’t mean Summit Entertainment is getting out of the paranormal teen romance game. Like Twilight, their upcoming film Warm Bodies is adapted from a YA novel about a supernatural boy who falls for a normal human girl. The twist: The pair lives in a postapocalyptic wasteland, and oh yeah, he happens to be a zombie. Here’s an exclusive look at the movie’s new one-sheet:
