"When there's no more room in hell, the dead will appear in every horror film and studios will try to cash in on the word zombie whenever they can." Malcolm Johnson :)
I have to say, I'm somewhat tired of zombies and the undead. When you start seeing ELLEN mentioning zombies or they appear on children's t-shirts, it's time to pack it up and put it away. :)
However, there are certain nuggets that I find myself returning to time and time again - usually around midnight...in the dark....curled up in a comfy chair.
If you've missed some of these, check them out at once. If you have a favorite, let me know in the comments section. I won't bite...
The dead downunder. Wacky, Peter Jackson style madness.A unique and fun film.
Shaun of the Dead
The pinnacle of modern horror comedy. Zom-Rom-Com.
REC and REC2
The undead ravage an apartment building in Spain. Shocking.
Return of the Living Dead
Some blissfully awesome undead, gory comedy from the 80s.
Splatter-gross dead from the twisted mind of Peter Jackson.
Nightmare meets madness in this horror romance from Italy.
Robert Rodriguez brings his spin to grindhouse dead. So good.
The battle of the sexes with a UK comedy twist. It's no Shaun, but it's trying hard to be.
Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things
A favorite of THE HORROR SHOW from the 70s. Slow pace. High creep factor.
Asian zombie sword swirl with a dash of WTF?! Good, bloody battles.
Dead Nazis rise from the snow and RUIN a groups mini-vacation. (Norwegian)
Italian classic. 1979 goodness from director Lucio Fulci. Main thing: SHARK VS ZOMBIE!
Dead and Buried
An interesting look at the undead, this film is packed with atmosphere and has a great story.
"The thinking man's zombie film". This takes place in one location and plays like a play. Fantastic.
Step One: Remove brain. Step Two: Enjoy! This wild ride is packed with...everything, really. Great!
A return to the ultra slow moving zombie film, THE DEAD takes place in the vast expanse of the African plains. Suspense and character based, this film rolls along nicely.
