The best of Zombies/Vampires in film & T.V.

It's Halloween weekend 2016! In celebration, Wildfire Reviews is doing the best zombie and vampire television and movies of all time.

Here at Wildfire Reviews, we love horror and all things Halloween. Now we'd like to display to you what we believe as the best zombie & vampire works in both television and films ever made. 

1) Night of the Living Dead (Original) A+
The original black and white Night of the Living dead is still enjoyable to watch today, making it the best this genre has to offer.
2) Let the Right One In (Both Films) A+
These modern vampire films are compelete masterpieces. They help redefine the genre and are truly scary and beautiful to watch.

3) Nosferatu A+
This classic film offers the best of what vampires have to offer on the big screen.

4) Buffy the Vampire Slayer A+
With wit, charm and personality, Buffy the Vampire Slayer isn't just the best vampire show of all time, but one of the best shows ever on modern day television.

5) 28 Days Later A+
28 Days later helped redefine the zombie genre when it was released. It was one of the scariest zombie films of all time, introducing the world to fast running dead creatures.

6) Shaun of the Dead A+
Funny, scary and emotional-Shaun of the Living Dead was something entirely different when it first came out. It helped boost the careers of then unknown actors Simon Pegg & Nick frost.

7) Dracula (Black and White) A
The original Dracula was a sight to see, and actually, the black and white version can be more scarier at times then the colored one.

8) Izombie A
Izombie offers a fresh new look at zombies never seen before on film and telivision, and the acting is incredible making this one of the best zombie shows on current T.V.

9) The Walking Dead A-
Even though it might be one of the most popular T.V. shows ever, The Walking Dead isn't necessarily the best zombie show ever. It is still a great addition to the genre.

10) 28 Weeks Later A-
The terryfing sequel to 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later is a pure example of how horror sequels should be done.

11) Bram Stoker's Dracula A-
Bram Stoker's Dracula is frightening, and above all epic, creating one of the most beloved versions of the iconic monster.

12) True Blood A-
Although it faltered in it's last few seasons, the beginning of HBO's True Blood was magnificent, capturing fans of the genre to a whole new level.

13) Shadow of the Vampire B+
With a spellbinding good performance by William Dafoe, (who actually ate a bat IRL for the part) The Shadow of the Vampire is one of the best indie films this genre has to offer.

14) Angel B
It may not be as great as Buffy, but the spin off did make it's own imprint on the genre when it was released, with many cross over episodes to Buffy.

15) Moonlight B
Moonlight may have only lasted one season, but this vampire show was great when it was on air.

16) Blade II B
Offering the best of the Blade series, the second film took the character to a whole new level.

17) Zombieland B+
Historically funny, Zombieland is it's own gem, offering an unusual breathe of fresh air to the zombie films.

18) Planet Terror B-
An indie film in every sense of the word, Tarantino offers his unusual take on the franchise.

19) Dawn of the Dead (Original) B-
A classic in it's own right,s Dawn of the Dead help people be aware of shopping malls and the incoming zombie apocalypse.

20) Being Human (UK) B-
It may not be the best vampire show ever, but Being Human did have it's moments when it aired on the British channels a few years ago, helping spawn an American spin off.
