Can’t get enough zombies

Filed under: Movies — Bob @ 9:50 pm

Seems to be the time of the year to watch zombie movies. The other evening we rented 28 Weeks Later, the sequel to the brilliant 28 Days Later. Although the sequel isn’t as good as the original, it was still a well-made horror flick. We particularly enjoyed the views of the empty city of London, and of course the story was well written and decently acted. There were plenty of frightening scenes and great zombie attacks.

Tonight we watched the Dawn of the Dead remake from 2004 on the Space Channel. Not a particularly great film but it had some original things as well as all the traits of a classic “B” horror film. I don’t think the acting was very good and the photography was average at best, but setting the film inside a shopping mall was brilliant. If you haven’t seen it you really should.

Any other zombie movie recommendations?

  1. While I don’t really go for zombie movies I really would recommend “Shawn of the Dead”… not such a gruesome horror, quite humorous. Ok, I guess it’s a comedy horror.

    There’s a trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfDUv3ZjH2k

  2. Channel 4 (in the UK) has just had a short series by zombie fan Charlie Brooker. It was called “Dead Set” with the zombie striking the country and hitting the set for a “Big Brother” program.

    You might be able to access it via 4oD (4 on Demand) but I’m not sure if it’s available online world wide. http://www.e4.com/deadset/
