Who Else Digs A Good Zombedy?

Just watched a fun little Aussie zombie flick and was thinking about how much I love a good zombie movie - more specifically those that contain a nice dose of wit. So I've compiled a list of me fave ten (off the top of my head), in rough order. NB: I wouldn't consider most of these "good" - but nowadays I'm mostly about enjoying the ride when it comes to film. List is artists I'm seeing next week, in vague order of excitedness.
1Damien Rice

"Shaun of the Dead": obvs
2Belle and Sebastian
If You're Feeling Sinister

"Dead Snow 2": Nazi zombies vs Soviet zombies - I mean, what's not to love?? The rare sequel that easily eclipses the original.
3The New Pornographers
Twin Cinema

"Braindead" (Dead Alive): PJ was so much more fun back in the day.
Turn on the Bright Lights

Zombieland: it is what it is.
5Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

"Juan of the Dead": Set in Cuba. Like a (sort of) political, Spanish-speaking Shaun. Loved it.
6Antony and the Johnsons
I Am A Bird Now

"Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead": Hyped (but far from overly) as Mad Max meets the undead - and it did not disappoint. Add in some good old fashioned Aussie humour and know-how, and baby, you've got yourself a movie.
7Sun Kil Moon

"Dead Snow": Nothing really happens in the first half, but the denouement is g(l)orious. And Nazi zombies, amirite?
Our Love

"Fido": Post-post-apocalyptic in a fresh-ish way.
9Mikal Cronin

"Cockneys vs Zombies": Not quite as Robin Hood as I dreamed it would be, but worthy nonetheless.
10Death Cab for Cutie

"Zombeavers": So this is a pretty dam atrocious movie, and unbelievably cringey, but it's one of those ones that you're rooting for everyone to die in, so I got enough enjoyment from it. Plus I just watched it, so it's literally off the top of my head.
