Hi Arto Karhunen,

Currently, IMDb does not have a search function for lists. This is a very popular request that many other users and I would like to see implemented.

The work around is a Google search with a search term of the form:
site:imdb.com/list keyword

For instance, if you would like to find lists related to zombie enter this into the search box. 
site:imdb.com/list zombie
This will produce the following search:
https://www.google.com/#q=site:imdb.com%2Flist+zombie

However, there are limitations to this approach. A robust list search in IMDb would be better.

For that matter, ask your friends and family who use IMDb to read that thread and click the like button if they would like to see a list search implemented in IMDb.

As another way to inform users about the opportunity to
support the request, I have added a note to my IMDb Profile.
My note is shown in full on the Boards Profile page at:
http://www.imdb.com/user/ur13322175/boards/

The same note can also be seen on the main page of the profile
after clicking the "See more" link to reveal it.

I may also include this "signature" in my future posts on the IMDb boards:

Great idea. I've added a shorter version to my profile page.

Let's not forget we can also publicize an idea posted on IMDb's Get Satisfaction site via social media.

For instance this is a tweet of the thread.
