Zombie (1979). I definitely regret not seeing this movie sooner. It’s an instant classic. This movie is about a women(Anna) who teams up with an investigative reporter(Peter) to look for her father after his boat shows up in a harbor in New York City with a zombie on board, but no sign of her father. Anna and Peter team up with a free spirited adventures (sometimes semi nude while scuba diving )couple to find the island her father was last known to be on. When they find the island they soon find trouble. Dun Dun Dun du Dun, the remote island is plagued with zombie!
What I love about this zombie movie is the shark eating the zombie while the zombie is fighting the shark. I feel that scene deserves a movie all to its self. – Zombie vs. Shark!! Also, the ending to this movie is what makes it a classic. It was one of the earliest zombie movies ,I’ve seen, to make you feel like everything was going to be ok and that the main characters would survive. Only to ripe that sense of relief out from under you last minute as it screen shots to New York being over ran by zombies. This last minute plot twist became an over used clicha in zombie movies for decades to come. However, at the time it was for the most part fresh and cutting edge.
This movie is a time capsule all in its self. The Farrah Fawcett hair, the James bond type cast male. The socially acceptable slapping of women to stop them from being hysterical. Side note: Has that ever really worked on anyone? I just can’t see how anyone slapping me in my face would cause me to calm down.
Zombie (1979) is a must see if your really into zombie. I hate to sound like one of those kids from reading Rainbow, recommending a book, but, “check out this movie you won’t regret it”.
I think I just found a new christmas eve tradition! A Cadaver Christmas is the new Christmas classic for those who rather die then see another Hallmark movie. A Cadaver Christmas is about a lone janitor named Dale working the night shift at a college on christmas when he comes across zombies wondering the halls. Dale the underdog turns into a one man killing machine after his attempt to get help fails. Along the way Dale makes some friends and loses some friends in his war on zombies. This is a pretty low budget film. I read somewhere that the budget for this movie was 10,000 dollars. I can’t confirm this, but if its true, I give this movie 5 stars for creating such a classic on such a small budget. This movie showcases no nudity or sex scenes, which in my book makes it family friendly, so long as you don’t mind your family watching zombies being impaled with desks or having their heads blown off. This movie has a grainy overlay which along with the color schematics gives it a vintage feel. This is a great light hearted, comical zombie film that won’t leave you feeling depressed on the holidays.
This is a true story. When I was about eleven or twelve my parents went to go watch my sister play in a softball tournament. I was home alone just the way I like it. We kind of lived out in the boonies in a little community called Dixie Union. It was late afternoon, I was watching Children of the Corn 2 The Finale Sacrifice and baking cookies. For those of you who don’t know Children of the Corn is about a bunch of evil kids who grew up in a religious cult like town. They ended up killing all the adults and start worshiping the corn, kind of like an idol. So I’m watching the movie and it starts getting smokey in the living home. Damn, I had forgotten about the cookies, they were burnt! Smoke was everywhere! I took them out of the oven and opened up the doors and windows to let the smoke out. Then I reluctantly returned to my movie. I was very bummed about my cookies, but it was kind of cool, the smoke it the house was like a misty fog, it kind of set the mood for the movie. A good ways into the movie one of those evil kids brings a vodo doll to church and he starts digging into the doll’s nose with a knife and when he does this another man in church starts bleeding profusely. So i’m at home alone watching this scene about an evil kid with a vodo doll when something catches my eye. I looked up from the rocking chair in the living room and through the smoke I see a little skinny girl with long brown hair. She looked about five years old. She was just standing there behind the kitchen table holding my cat in her arms, petting it. I had never seen this child before in my life and here i am watching a movie about evil killer kids. I just sat there. I didn’t move. When the little girl looked up and saw me she dropped the cat and ran. I just sat there. I turned off the movie to listen so she couldn’t sneak up and kill me.Then like a lot of people who feel like they are about to die I got conveniently religious. I didn’t pray out loud ,I was too scared. I just started acknowledging God and Jesus in hopes that If I died I wouldn’t burn in hell if this little girl did kill me. After about 10min of dead stillness and not seeing anything i began to question my sanity , was there even a girl there in the first place but I wasn’t going to take any chances. I decided to make a run for it and I darted out the door to outside. I’ve seen enough scary movies so I knew better then to go looking around the house, that’s how people get killed!! So I ran outside and I just stood outside next to the dirt road until my parents got home. When my parents got home and I told them what happened they didn’t know what to think. I was left without answers until the next day when I saw the little girl playing in the dirt road. It turns out she was one of my neighbor’s grandkids from out of town. The girl was playing with my cat when the cat ran inside because I had left the door open to let all the smoke out, from burning cookies. She just followed the cat right into the house without even thinking. But because I was watching Children of the Corn and I have an overactive imagination I really thought she was going to kill me.lol Sometimes timing is everything. Next time i’ll tell you about the time i had mistaken mistletoe for a killer hobo.
