7 Best Zombie Movies on Amazon Prime Right Now – World cinema has addressed the concept of zombie invasions, with films such as ‘White Zombie (1932)’ and ‘I Walked With a Zombie (1943)’ being two good examples.

The zombie apocalypse is a multifaceted genre that provokes fear, terror, revulsion, shock, suspense, and horror all at once. With that said, here’s a selection of great zombie movies on Amazon Prime that you can watch right now!
