DAY OF THE WOMAN PRESENTS: THE SEXIEST ZOMBIE WOMEN

It was nearly two and a half years ago when Day of the Woman unveiled the most visited list on this blog.  Now that years have gone by, there has been an outbreak (no pun intended) of zombie films, books, genre obsessions, and adaptations.  When we think of a zombie, the easiest image is that of a rotting male corpse with a jaw missing and skin melting off of the bones.  Female zombies, are of a breed entirely their own.  For some reason or another, regardless of the decrepit stage, female zombies have always managed to withhold even the slightest bit of sex appeal.  Leave it to a woman to find a way to manage to make a brain hungry savage somewhat attractive.  While the first list was simply the "top zombie women", this list is of a bit of a different caliber.  While little Karen Cooper may have been the top female zombie, calling a child "sexy" is just a little too Oingo Boingo for my liking.  These women are the zombies that manage to keep your blood flowing even while they're stumbling after you.  These are the women that can instill both a nightmare, and a gloriously realistic fantasy.  Ladies and Germs, I now submit for your approval, the sexiest zombie women in horror.
BLONDE ZOMBIE from DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)
The infamous blonde ghoul terrorizing the mall in George A. Romero's masterpiece Dawn of the Dead was played by Jeannie Jefferies.  Not only is she credited as being the girl who attacked Roger, but she was also one of Savini's make-up girls on set.  Not too shabby as far as zombie credentials go, eh?
#9 from LAND OF THE DEAD
Albeit the jaw falling completely off of her face, Jennifer Baxter as #9 in Land of the Dead is pretty cute.  Maybe it's her tattered "beach wave" hair, or her always curious expression, or the tomboy feel you get when she's running around with the baseball bat...but she's so cute.  I mean, I guess you'd have to be in order to hang out with the likes of Big Daddy.  I will say this, google her without the zombie makeup.  Goodness Gracious, she's a total babe.

THE WOMEN from THE ZOMBIE WOMEN OF SATAN
The U.K. really caused quite the stir in the loins of horror geeks everywhere with this little indie film.  Let's just say that gore wasn't the only thing gratuitous about this film.  There are so many boobs in this film you'd think you were watching HBO after hours.  The film itself is trying ridiculously too hard to impress, but this list isn't about quality films...it's about sexy zombie women.  I commend this film not only for having half naked women covered in blood, but for also having CURVY women.  Most film producers wouldn't dare have someone naked that isn't a size two, so I commend the filmmakers for showing that zombie or not, curvy women have got it going on.
NAKED ZOMBIE from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Although we never see much of her other than from behind, this woman managed to take a walk on role and turn it into one of the most iconic images from the granddaddy of all things zombie.  This famous booty has plastered itself on VHS and DVD covers, collage posters, and even tattoos of the most diehard fans.  Eat your heart out, Kim Kardashian.
MONA HARRISON from ZOMBIES OF MORA TAU
Before Romero completely changed the zombie film as we know it, the film industry was cranking out zombie films left and right.  Wearing quite possibly the greatest push-up bra in the history of film, the fifty foot woman herself, Allison Hayes, was one of the most classically beautiful zombies to ever grace the screen.  So she isn't falling apart at the seams and isn't trying to eat anyone, so what? She's still a zombie.  A sexy, sexy zombie. 
TAMMY from FIDO
Thanks to the quick acting Zom-Com, Tammy is quite possibly the most composed of all of the zombies in the film Fido.  One of the few that sports an outfit that doesn't resemble that of a garbage man, Tammy is kept less as a servant, and more as a companion.   What she is accompanying is up for debate.  Tammy is played by the angelic Sonja Bennett.

THE LIVING DEAD GIRLZ
If the Pussycat Dolls and George A. Romero had a baby, it would probably resemble something like Amber Steele and The Living Dead Girlz.  These girls aren't just sexy, they're also talented.  With choreographed dance routines set with horrifying backgrounds, The Living Dead Girlz are a horror geek's ultimate fantasy.  If you're ever around San Fransico, CA...try to track them down and catch a performance.
JENNA JAMESON from ZOMBIE STRIPPERS
Seriously? This needs a description?  While Jenna Jameson's best acting contributions to the world were done lying on her back, she managed to get cozy with Robert Englund in genre guilty pleasure Zombie Strippers.  This film was nothing more than a role she was born to play, and horror fanatics around the globe are eternally grateful for it.  
 
TRASH from RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
And on the third day, God said "Let There Be Linnea Quigley".  Am I going to get crap for not saving her for last? Yes. Do I care? no.  Linnea Quigley's performance as Trash in ROTLD is quite possibly the zombie female performance to end all zombie female performances.  She was mouthy, scary, sexy, and horror fans couldn't get enough of her.  She could very well be responsible for setting an entire generation of horror geeks through puberty, and I don't think there's a single person out there who would complain about it.  She was the first, she's one of the best, and she's easily the inspiration for most of (if not the entire) sexy zombie movement.
JULIE WALKER from RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD III
 Trash may have been the original sexy zombie, but Melinda Clarke's portrayal of Julie Walker in ROTLD3 is easily the Holy Grail.  A combination of sex, undead, metal, and prowess, Julie Walker is easily the end all be all of all things sexy zombie.  She's easily the only redeeming quality about the film, and her sex appeal has made quite the splash in the libidos of horror fans the world over. 





Can't get enough undead women?  Apparently the zombies in the new video game Dead Island are pretty sexy and they've composed a list of the seven sexiest zombies from the game over HERE.

I have to strongly dosagree with the idea that Julie Walker was the only good thing about ROTLD3, sure she was breathtaking and totally perfect but the rest of the movie was superb as well, not only do i think it was easily the best of entire ROTLD series, i also think its one of the most ludicrously under-rated horror movies of all-time.

Well I must me gay or weird or something because I've seen Walker on a number of "Hottest Horror" something or other lists, but I never found her to be all that great. I mean sure, she isn't ugly but I guess she just isn't my cup of tea. Also, Allison Hayes is a great addition to this list. Zombies of Mora Tau is such an under rated film. - Cory

Hey, SLAUGHTER FILM, the fact that you`re unable to appreciate the truly astonishing magnificence of Julie Walker in ROTLD3 does indeed bring your sexual orientation into serious question.

I say Naked Zombie from NOTLD was #1 for me... firstly, because it's the '60s, and secondly, I mean, come on, check out the butt.

Love, love, love me some Melinda Clarke in ROTLD3! Indeed an underrated flick.

LOVE it!!! Great job on your pics.

I would have picked the goth chic zombie from Zombie Strippers tho instead mainly because of her FACE DANCE!! ha ha ha ha

And I love that you included Tammy from Fido!! Priceless!

I just can't say that the Night of the Living Dead naked zombie chick belongs on this list. I watched that movie at the height of puberty. A gap in the couch turned me on. But I still have nightmares about that chick. Not sexy.

I have always like flirting (but not diving too deep into) the idea of the undead and sex. It is truly a confusing path.

If you want to attempt to drag your mind into this realm (which is sort of love and death, life and death, birth and death, sex and death) watch Cemetery Man (aka Dellamorte Dellamore). It wrestles very well with these ideas.

Scorcese said that this movie was one of the best made in 1994.

We have a zombie blog you should check out. it's about survivors during a zombie apocalypse that use the internet to connect, get information, and post stories about the take over and the resistance.

deadendzombies.blogspot.com

If you read blog and have some good short stories you think are inline with the plot you can email them to thedeadendblog@gmail.com.

AWESOME PAGE!!!!

Zombies Games said...

awesome pics, love this blog! very ZOMBIE-ish

Kevin Bond said...

The zombie woman in Cemetery Man should definitely be on here. She never has a name in the film; in the credits she's referred to only as "She."

There are a couple pictures of her here: http://www.helpzombies.com/cemetery-man.html

Otherwise, great article, there are zombie movies mentioned here that I've never even heard of!

Totally agree with Jenna Jameson. In fact, I believe she looks far better zombied out than she does a human.
