I thought this list would be quite hard to make, because there are so many zombie movies. Luckily, 99% of all the zombie movies ever made are terrible, which made it all a lot easier. I'm sure I forget some really good memorable zombie movies, but these are the ones that are my favorites right now.
10. Dead Snow
What a brilliant master piece. It's absolutely ridiculous, but I almost died of laughing. Nazi zombies, who ever came up with it is my hero. I think it took a lot of courage to make this movie.
The first time I saw it, I was watching it with a 'WTF is this?!' look on my face, but I'll have to admit, it's quite brilliant. It's funny, filled with gore and not even slightly scary. Amazing.
I do think not everybody can appreciate this movie, which is kinda logical, but for those who can, I really recommend this movie if you love a ridiculous zombie movie.
Another funny zombie movie is Zombieland. It's not really scary, although at some point a creepy zombie clown shows up. I really like this movie because it has some humor in it. Also, the tips you learn through the movie kinda stick to you and every other zombie movie you watch after it, you immediately say 'Double tap!'. It's really an useful tip you know.
I didn't bother to start watching the TV show, because it seemed boring, so I can't compare those. But I can't imagine that anybody who plays Tallahassee and isn't Woody Harrelson will come out very good.
Anyway, Zombieland is a very funny zombie movie, and for those who haven't seen it yet, it's really recommendable.
8. [Rec] 3: Genesis
Many people will disagree with me, but I thought [Rec]3: Genesis was better than [Rec]2. I thought the story was a lot more fun, although the ending was a bit lame. [Rec]2 really goes on with were [Rec] left of, which was a bit boring after a while. Anyway, I thought this was a really good movie, and if you've read my review you know why. I loved how they switched from hand camera to normal filming, the switch between them was shown very creative I think. Overall, this movie is quite bad ass. Look at that poster, a bride with a chainsaw. How amazing is that?!
This movie is absolutely not scary, but it does have a good story. In this movie the zombies aren't such a threat anymore, because they all have electronic devices on their neck to control their zombie habits. This way, people can use them in their house to do the cleaning or things like that. I liked this movie a lot because it wasn't the typical zombie movie filled with blood were everybody of the main persons get bit except for one or two. It was a really surprising movie in comparison with other zombie movies.
6. 28 Weeks Later
This movie was not as good as 28 Days Later, but still well enough. The story was very different but still amusing. I loved seeing people like Rose Byrne, Robert Carlyle and Jeremy Renner in it. Those are people you wouldn't see in a movie like this anytime soon I think. I heard there will also come a 28 Months Later but that's not sure yet. I hope it will come eventually, I really like Danny Boyle's movies and another movie in this series will be amazing. We can only hope and wait!
5. Dawn of the Dead (original and remake)
It was hard to choose between the old and new Dawn of the Dead. I think they're both really good but I did enjoy the new Dawn of the Dead a bit more. I could put both of them in this list but that would be a bit of a waste of space. So for the original Dawn of the Dead, here is your honorable mentioning! I think the new Dawn of the Dead was one of the first zombie movies I ever saw, I'm not sure but that's the only one I can remember seeing when I was young. I thought it was really good back then and I still like watching it. I think I've seen this movie literally 30 times or something, and while it's not that refreshing anymore, it's still fun to watch.
4. Shaun of the Dead
I absolutely love this movie. I remember watching it after Dawn of the Dead and this movie was so amazing. It's not only because I'm a big fan of the combination of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, it's just everything. The script was amazing, great dialogues, great camerawork, nice music and the humor was also amazing. I think there's not one Edgar Wright movie that I don't like, but this one really tops all of the other ones.

1. Planet Terror
Honorable mentions: Night of the Living Dead, The Walking Dead (it isn't a movie, but I love it so much it has to be mentioned), [Rec]2, Resident Evil, The Crazies
