As much as I like well-done horror movies, I have little tolerance for cheesy ones. It probably comes down to what is considered cheesy to any given viewer, though.

 

This is very true. I think I like some of the  cheesy movies just for the sheer comedy of it. I just think some of them are to funny to be really considered horror movies. But as they say "beauty" is in the eye of the beholder...

Re: The Zombie Thread

It's not often we get zombie movies, so I hope (fingers crossed) that any upcoming ones are good and scary. Personally, I'm not one for the cheesy kind. I mean, they are called "Horror" movies.  Plus, I love to be scared out of my witts.

Hollywood eyes $70 zombie movie wowing Cannes

I found this story about  Colin the zombie movie made for $70 to be really interesting.  I think the director Marc Price must be one of the happiest people on the planet right now.  I could only find this trailer on a blog site, it's small so I couldn't see it that well but it looked ok.

Breathers 

 

And this is a novel that I am reading currently. It is different from most zombie novels in that it is neither an apocalyptic tale nor are the zombie mindless. It is a social satire, wherein zombies come back from the dead but are treated as "untouchables" - no rights and no compassion from the living. How long do you think they are going to stand for this treatment? Definitely humorous, but pointedly so. Unless this one really blows it, this will probably be one of the best books that I read this year.

I finished this book last week.  I loved it.  Although, the ending seemed a bit weak.

I liked the way that the story changed elements EVERY time I got comfortable with the story.  I would definately recomend this book to anyone.

Re: The Zombie Thread

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

My favorite zombie novels:

 

Day by Day Armageddon - J. Bourne

DBDA - Beyond Exile - J. Bourne

As the World Dies: A Zombie Trilogy - Rhiannon Frater

World War Z - Max Brooks

Zombie Survival Guide - Max Brooks (hilarious intro to zombology)

Patient Zero - Jonathon Maberry

Zombie CSU - Jonathon Maberry

Dying to Live - Kim Paffenroth

Dying to Live: Life Sentence - Kim Paffenroth

The Rising - Brian Keene

City of the Dead - Brian Keene

Dead Sea - Brian Keene

 

I'm not sure what is driving the surge of zombie writing, but more zombie novels have come out in the past few years than the previous two decades.  I guess writers are business people, too.  The Resident Evil games and movies along with 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, and Zombieland were successful and Presto! we get zombie novels.

 

Cheers (and don't forget to buy more ammo),

Re: The Zombie Thread

Is it ok to post a link to a nook book that I've written about the zombie invasion?
