In celebration of Halloween I am going to do daily posts that highlight my favorite movies, comics and whatever else I can think of based on the creature I pick. Today’s Halloween monster is the zombie. If glittery Vampires populate pop cultures wet dreams than surely Zombies are in its worst nightmares. After all it is difficult to romanticize a lumbering creature that just wants to eat you and not copulate with you. So without further ado here are my favorite pieces of zombie goodness.
By far my favorite zombie movie is 28 Days Later. The movie has a great cast and some truly terrifying zombies. Although in the movie we find out that sometimes human nature can be worse than zombies when it is pushed to the limits.
As far as Zombie comedies go “Zombieland” is my favorite. The Bill Murray scenes alone make this movie worth seeing. Honorable mention goes to “Shaun of the Dead”.
My favorite piece of music inspired by Zombies is the “Zombie EP” that was put out by The Devil Wears Prada earlier this year. There aren’t enough Zombie concept albums in music. This record is good and heavy. It is the heaviest thing that i’ve ever heard out of these guys. They should write this way more often.
My favorite Zombie board game is “Last Night on Earth” . This game is a regular zombie hootananny!
Finally my favorite Zombie comic book event is Blackest Night. That story line was awesome and it put to shame Marvel’s lame attempts at zombie stories.
What are some of your favorite zombie items/movies/whatever?
