A few iconic Zombie or zombish movies....(according to catt)
Night of the Living Dead
It's a classic. The dynamics of the group and the fear set the standards for zombie movies. The opening scene is still chilling.
Dawn of the Dead
Original and remake. I love both for different reasons. The original scared me and I love that, but the remake...Ving just knocked it out! Malls are forever tainted.
Day of the Dead
When the zombie salutes....epic. And the feel is very depressing and claustrophobic. One thing this film has is the emotional desperation that always works well.
28 Days Later
Not a zombie flick per se but it counts. This was the first realistic account and the city itself is a character.
28 Weeks Later
I love it all, even the unrealistic parts. The ending sequence nailed it but the opening scene is what makes this movie strong. The soundtrack is one I actually downloaded because it made such an impact on me.
Shaun of the Dead
Okay. I do not like comedies. I hate comedy with horror, but this was cheeky and somehow the people say the things I would say to relieve my fears. Well done movie.
World War Z
I am one of the weird people who didn't like the book. I know. I went in to this wanting to hate the movie but while those who liked the book found fault in this, I found fun. I like this a lot for the CGI and over-the-top scenes. And Pitt strangely nailed the main role.
Not a pure Z movie. That said, I disliked the creature that appears and have to ignore that part in this series of the films but I liked all the actors. Mila is awesome. And I loved Michelle Rodriguez in the first movie; she was a fun character.
Zombie offerings from JEA
The Walking Dead. How do you think the season will end?
Most recent recap HERE
I wanted to hate this one as well. Comedy. Woody? Bill Murray? Yuk. And yet, I loved it. Both actors were excellent and the movie is pure entertainment.
A favorite. I love the director and Michael Biehn was a treat. Machine gun leg? Silly? Maybe but I was totally entertained and had fun with this movie. Rose M. was perfect and the rest of the cast was superb.
Odd choice for my top 10. This is a brutal Z movie and there are some tough themes but that's what makes it work. The lead actor evolved and it's just one of those movies that can be forgotten.
The comments are open and I hope a few will leave comments. What are your favorite zombie movies? Who will die (or live) on TWD. Have you read a JEA Z book? How did you like it?
