A Plague so Pleasant, Living with the Undead

PLAGUE boxart

 

Finally a different kind of Zombie movie that, although low budget, really has a different kind of plot. It’s called A Plague so Pleasant and tells a wild and weird tale of surviving in a different kind of setting than the usual. Nicely acted and directed the movie treats the viewer to all the guts and gore, but adds a twist. The horror thriller is only available on DVD starting today. Read more

The Walking Deceased, a Zombie Invasion

WALKING boxart amazon

 

Mixing comedy with horror the film The Walking Deceased combines the genres in an attempt to attract the younger crowd. Now on DVD the film makes a good attempt, but the low budget, novice direction and amateur acting fails to entertain. The production starts out on the right foot, but they try to spoof too many films without good vision and many amateurs spoil the pot. Read more

Zombieworld, a Grisly Horror Flick

ZOMBIEWORLD boxart

 

Stick with this DVD called Zombieworld as it gets better as it goes along. A perfect feature for the budding make-up and special effects artists and all those who just love to see Zombies splattered and dismembered. At first I thought it was just another rude, crude and silly take off on the undead, but as you get into each of this collection of short films, they compel you to watch more and more. Each of the stories are produced, directed and acted by different filmmaking crews giving their own views about creatures of a world gone nuts. Read more

Warm Bodies, My Date With a Zombie (Film Review)

warmPOSTER

 

A nice job with a Romeo and Juliet theme, Warm Bodies shows what an imaginative writer/director can do with a zombie love story.  The slick little romancer creates fun out of terror and sends a lot of subliminal messages. Perfect for teens to twenties, it’s the perfect modern day date movie with both sexes looking for fun and some creative horror.

The USA has turned its population into zombies following an epidemic, germ warfare or other catastrophe of massive proportions.  Only a small city has survived behind tall walls and armed with a militia that’s ready for about anything.  Squads have been sent to seek food and medicine outside the walls and on this one occasion Julie (Teresa Palmer), the daughter of the militant leader Grigio (John Malkovich), has joined the group of searchers. The undead have been attacking these people and killing them for food, their brains being the best nutrition and they happen on Julie’s squad where a fight breaks out.   Read more
