Love Zombie films. Make it good though, don't just rely on the fact that you have flesh-consuming monsters on the loose, even though that's awesome.

Personally for me, I can't think of an appropriate title until after I film it or as I film it.

"27 days later"

Snipes aside, you'll find it a lot easier to think up a name yourself (which surely is more satisfying?) once you've written a script, which I imagine you haven't, otherwise you'd have a name already.

Name the production Blue Harvest until you can think up a proper name. You're not really "getting" film-making if you're thinking up a name before you've done anything else.

Which ever name you do pick for your movie keep in mind that titles for movies should be SIMPLE, compare the 2 movie titles "Rush Hour" and "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace". Long titles just don't sound as cool as shorter ones, to me anyways.

And 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' was truncated to 'Four Weddings' for the US market - the rule of thumb for the US market at least (and useful generally) is 4 words at most.

Just come up with a tongue in cheek B-movie style title (most of the suggestions have been of that caliber anyhow) and then get on with making it. You can always change it later anyhow.

also, They say the title in alot of films. So you could just take a part of one of your characters lines and turn that into the title. Just an idea in case you don't want to go with any of the names already given.

Well I didn't mean it in bad way at the time I wrote that, But after reading it yeah it could be taken badly. I do agree with Corby idea, I have seen some movies that used a line as their title. As for another title name, here's one,
The last Plague
It might work because it is a plague of some sorts.
