i heart zombies

True story.

I love Zombies.

What oh what to do with me, I know.

It’s not that I love love them, of course not, they want to eat my brains and flesh.

That would be bad.

I love the movies.

Here’s the thing. I am not a “horror” person. I don’t mind being afraid, I mean the only reason I don’t ride roller-coasters anymore isn’t because I don’t want to be scared out of my wits but because I end up in bed for three days recovering. That’s not fun.

I don’t like the falling rides though. Those aren’t rides. Being hauled by your armpits up a gazillion feet and then dropped is not a ride. That’s suicide disguised as fun. I want no part of that.

But the AH! And OH! As you intake your breath because OHMYGOSHWHATISTHATTHING? Now that’s fun!

Yesterday I discovered that The Walking Dead, Season 2 was finally on Netflix. I proceeded (after watching Bones, of course) to spend the rest of my day watching Zombies. Or rather, the survivors battling the Zombies along with all the drama that comes from a society crumbling to bits in chaos.

Oh wait.

Yes, I also listened to the debate (lack of TV but I do have a car radio, lol). Oh. Boy. I am looking forward to more debates. That was interesting and enlightening. Did it sway me? Yeah, a little. It really depends on what your biggest issues are and since I don’t want to get into a political debate here I’ll let it go for now… Talk about it later because right now I want to talk about Zombies!

So the Zombies of The Walking Dead got that way from some illness? It’s a little unclear because they keep unraveling the “How it happened” over time. One thing is certain; if you are bitten you are “infected” and will “turn.” The new thing you become is dead but alive and craving brains.

Recently I read Pride & Prejudice & Zombies; which I thought was going to be horrible, but it turned out to be hilarious. Elizabeth Bennet is a Ninja warrior and she SLAMS Mr. Darcy’s head into the fireplace mantle. I actually can’t wait to see the movie version.

I also love Zombieland. I hear they might make another one and that would ROCK! Jesse Eisenberg (I want to call him Zuckerberg! LOL) has a list of rules. They are hilarious and the movie is fun and pretty well done… considering the Zombies.

I’m still interested in seeing Shaun of the Dead but not so much Night of the Living Dead, or its remake,  although I did like the version they did of it on Medium.

I have no idea how I got this way.

I don’t know when it started. I think it was Season 1 of The Walking Dead. It was so well done that I kind of became a Zombie aficionado.  That’s when I started looking into other movies and saw Zombieland.

Now it’s kind of a fetish.

Season 3 starts October 14th. But I won't get to watch it for another year.

  1. I am a fan. LOVED Zombieland. Shaun of the Dead is in my opinion #2just behind Zombielad but I loved it as well. I'm not a huge fan of Night of the Living Dead but I believe it is the humor. I want my zombies with a dose of laughter. I want to be a little tongue and cheek.
