So, I've decided to put this amazon associates thing to good use while putting my vast knowledge of films to good use as well. Well, not really a knowledge of film, but I've seen a lot of them. I'll start with my 5 favorite zombie features! And then by the end of the weekend, have a definitive list of the best horror films of all time!!!
#1. 28 Days Later:
Yes, this was a game changer for the Zombie Genre. No longer did Zombie had to be bumbling idiots (republicans), no, now they could be fast and chase you. This new "Rage" virus had the zombies intensified as they began to rule mother England. Also, to infect others, they did not need a taste of the flesh. No, no no, god no! All they really needed to do is puke this deep red with black specks goo upon your orifices, then you were fucked. Shit out of luck! That's why this is one of the best Zombie films of all time. And it doesn't hurt to have Danny Boyle in the directors chair, either!
#2. Night of the Living Dead:
I have to choose this one. It's almost prescribed by the zombie institute of American Zombie Relations. Romero touched on some pretty heavy topics, all the while scaring the pants off of the audience. I remember seeing this as a child, and it scared the bajeesus out of me for months. Still creepy to no end, and will forever stand for all time.
#3. Dawn of the Dead(Original):
Oh, big effing surprise, I know. Another Romero flick. It's hard to go wrong with Tom Savini, though. Seriously. The man is a genius with blood. Plus, it was a little more light hearted than Night of the Living Dead. Showing the infected as bumbling idiots (Democrats) and allowing those on the run to pretty much do whatever they want inside that mall. Also, a killer soundtrack. You know what? I'll link you to it! Preview some of the tracks. They're brilliant.
4. Planet Terror:
Wait, are these Zombies? Well, they are infected. They do feast on human motherfucking flesh, so I'd say yeah. Technically, they are. Either way, it's pretty brilliant. A throwback to the horror movies of yore. Back when the frighten came from the effects. And Bruce Willis is amazing. But that can be said for anything he's in. Especially Hudson Hawk. Don't deny it! Anyway, this is a great zombified film. I suggest it.
A completely new way and new take for the Zombie Genre. This comedic look at what it would be like in a world filled with Zombies takes you through the life of the guy who would eventually create Facebook. Wait... I'm mixing up my movies. Oh well. This is a fantastic film with everything that is great about the genre. I suggest shelling out the extra cash for the special edition for this one. Gotta love it!
Well, that's my list. Expect a new list within the next few days!
