I just love when it gets close to Halloween and the TV starts playing all these scary movies. This weekend I have been glued to AMC, also known as the American Movie Channel, watching their monthly horror marathon called Fear Fest. Today, there has been a lot of Zombie movies and it will all wrap up with the second episode of the 2nd season of the show, Walking Dead. Awesome show. If you love zombie movies but you’ve never heard of this show, then you are missing out!
It’s basically about a zombie apocalypse where survivors are few and based on a comic series of the same name, although the comic writer has admitted to making changes here and there so his comic fans will stay surprised and interested. I have actually considered reading the comics, but they have been out so long that I am not sure how to get them from the beginning.
I know there are those that are not big fans of horror movies, but I just love them. They are my ultimate guilty pleasure, but one I will freely admit to. And come on, while there is definitely gore and a creep factor involved in zombie movies, there’s some humor too. For instance, in a movie I watched today called, “Flight of the Living Dead”, (as if flying wasn’t scary enough!), an older lady gets turned into a zombie and it’s apparent she has lost her teeth when she attacks one of the non-zombies. “Ah, she’s gumming me to death!,” he screams as he pries her loose. Comedy found in a frightening situation. I just love it!
Now off I go for more zombie fun possibly followed by Vampires….I dvr’d the previously unseen “From Dusk to Dawn” trilogy the other night to watch. Cheers to all my fellow horror movie lovers!
