Winner of the Decade: Zombies!

This is an older article that was published just before New Years of last year, but I still find it enjoyable. The author goes through the movies of the past decade, declaring both decade-wide winners and losers. Zombies, of course, got a big gold star (which I liked). From serious zombie horror in “Dawn of the Dead” to not-so serious zombie horror in “Shaun of the Dead” and “Zombieland” to horror that featured pseudo-zombies in “28 Days Later”/”28 Weeks Later,” zombies were the kings of the good horror movies these past 10 years. They even made it to the bookshelves with the widely successful “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” which will have its own adaptation on screen starring Natalie Portman. … Read entire article »

Terminal Gamer’s Ultimate Zombie List

Geoffrey Calver, founder and writer of the video game blog, Terminal Gamer, has put together a list of all the “must see, play, or experience” things about the zombie genre. This isn’t your typical top-ten type list as it spreads across multiple genres, but its heart is in the right place … a zombie’s mouth. On my first read of the list, the only thing going through my head was Night of the Living Dead and seeing in its proper place, I managed to give it a nice and thorough review. It was nice to see oft unmentioned zombie properties such as Doom 3, The Evil Dead, and Dead Rising. Zombie purists might hold a hissy fit seeing 28 Days Later on the list, but personally, I consider … Read entire article »

Let’s face it, when the zombie apocalypse happens, it isn’t going to be pretty. There’s going to be a lot of newbie mistakes out there so I thought I compile a list of the five ones that will get you killed. Not Checking for Bite Marks The zombies have invaded! You and a friend manage to slash your way through scores of rotting bodies to find a formidable shelter. Your friend, looking pale and covered with blood, denies that he has been bitten. “Just a bad bit of cabbage for lunch today,” he responds. Uh-huh. You might as well cut open your own head and give him your brain. Chances are, he got nibbled in the melee. Modesty be damned, it’s time to do a little stripping and searching. … Read entire article »

Goozlepipe’s Top Twenty Six Zombies of All Time

Another day. Another “top ten” list. This one comes from movie review site, Goozlepipe.com that lists its favorite zombies. It’s a fairly uncontroversial list although I would have ranked the cemetery zombie from Night of the Living Dead higher in the rankings. Also I would have just stuck with movies instead of bringing video games into the mix. Still, it’s good read. 26+ Best Zombies of All Time (goolzepipe.com … Read entire article »

Top Five Reasons Why Becoming a Zombie is a GOOD Thing

We’ve seen all the zombie movies. Some poor fool holds out against a horde of flesh eaters when he is stricken by a zombie bite. There’s a lot of wailing as the dude realizes that there isn’t much living left to do. This, of course, is purely half-empty kind of thinking. Just because you die doesn’t mean you’ll have no life. As a zombie, a whole new world opportunity is opened to you. Here’s my top five reasons why becoming a zombie is a GOOD thing. 1) No More Cooking. No More DIshes. Cooking can be a time intensive activity. Once you finish a meal, then you have dishes to do. By the time the dishes are done, the night is … Read entire article »

14 Ways to Kill a Zombie

Moviefill is running an article describing the fourteen “badass” ways of killing a zombie. I was kind of hoping they’d go out on a limb like dropping cars on zombies or preforming rapid depressurization. But, this article runs the standard methods … chainsaws … lawnmowers … supermodels. Each example is accompanied by a particular clip. I’m there are better methods out there. Off the top of my head, Romero’s fire extinguisher comes to mind. 4 Most Badass Ways to Kill a Zombie (moviefill.com … Read entire article »

5 Ways to Accidentally Start a Zombie Apocalypse

Dan Koelsch over at movieviral.com recently wrote an article about the ways to inadvertently start a zombie apocalypse. I think my favorite method is mixing moonshine with toxic waste. I never thought combing the two items would produce zombies, but seeing how it does, I think I’m going to be a little busy tonight. Drinks on this house!
