Zombie (1979) (Amazon Prime)Movie Review

                  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”.

A Cadaver Christmas (Amazon Prime) Movie Review


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.


The Mad (Amazon Prime) Movie review

The Mad (Amazon Prime) Movie Review

First of all let me start by saying ,yes, that is Billy Zane from the movie Titanic. Now that we got that out of the way; I liked this movie. It’s a movie about a father and teenage daughter who come to realize that what they have in life is better then being eaten alive.

When a dysfunctional  family goes on vacation the people around them start turning  into zombies after eating burgers made with meat from a local farm.  A Father and daughter team up and presumably save the world by investigating the source of the meat and putting an end to it. I give this movie a thumps up. Its far from original or rememberable but its a solid, light hearted, comical zombie movie about father and daughter bonding. If Hallmark ever decided to be a little edgey and make a zombie movie, this is what it would look like. Also it was good to see Billy Zane again, it’s been awhile.

Here Alone (It’s on Netflix) Movie Review


Here Alone is a Drama about a young family that flee to the woods during the beginning of a zombie virus outbreak. Of course everyone doesn’t make it. A women now all alone fending for herself  comes across a young girl and her guardian and life once again changes. It was a really good movie and i applauded them for successfully making a Zombie Drama. This is a great movie even if your not really into zombie movies.

The Girl with all the Gifts- Movie review


The Girl with all the Gifts is a solid  zombie movie. It could have been great but it fell short. It wasn’t bad acting per-say but it was like the actors didn’t know their characters and the emotional chemistry between the characters was off. With A list Actors like Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton I was expecting it to be great and it wasn’t. The plot was great, which was part of the problem, the plot and story line were greater then the movie itself. I think this would have been better as a mini series. It would have given the actors more time to develop their characters and it would have allowed for more details to pull the story together. Also I feel like it was poorly edited. But over all it was good. Im just overly critical of big budget Zombie Movies. Watch it and Judge for yourself.
