28. ‘Plague of the Zombies’ (1966)
This horror gem of mid-’60s British cinema is set in the English countryside, where a mysterious ailment is killing off a small village’s populace. It takes a while for the zombies to get their screen time, as the movie progresses at first like a mystery as a newly arrived doctor tries to get a handle on the situation. Once they appear, the living dead here are indeed scary, and the film has once of the best rising-from-the-grave scenes of all time.
