It's saying you should drive at 40mph so when you run over kids they don't get resurrected as zombies, right?
i need to watch some more zombie films. i realised i haven't seen some of the awful unofficial sequels to Fulci's zombie films, and this needs to be corrected.
- Undead (Australian zombie film)
- Versus (Japanese - Yakuza v zombies)
- Happiness of the Katakuris
I was just trying to suggest good yet slightly-obscure zombie films you might like to see :)
happiess of katakuris isnt really a zombie film (except for one song and dance routine)
sorry to shit in your sandwich
it's one of the best zombie films of the last 10 years.
Happiness of the Katakuris isn't strictly a zombie film, no, but it is really good and should be watched by as many people as possible.
the whole alien explanation thing just seemed stupid and nonsensical.
maybe im just a zombie traditionalist
When it comes down to it there's no difference between whether it's aliens or a crashed satellite, it's equally nonsensical.
The alien thing made it a bit 'new age' but the whole film was tongue in cheek and it kind of fit in with the whole of this.
Even if you don't like the explanation, the film still has some of the best set-pieces ever.
admittedly i only saw it once ages ago, but it still seemed like an unfulfilling explanation for quite a good beginning. and yes there are some good effects/set-pieces, i just didnt like it overall
and also, im never wrong :P
it comes nowhere near the masterpiece of zombified tongue-cheekery which is 'Braindead'
at least we agree on that.
I introduced some DiSers to it on Friday night and we had some satisfied customers by the end credits :)
i thought undead was awful but i think i was in a bad mood when i was watching it.
i see your attempt at zombie oneupmanship and raise you a 'i have a signed photo of the little girl from night of the living dead' and a 'they mention my name in the dawn of the dead dvd commentary'
You win on that front.
Versus is completely crazy and non-sensical but it's so much fun.
Please stop shitting on Undead, it's great.
Have you seen the film of House of the Dead? Now that's a film that's so bad it's good :D
I think we could get 10 in a row if we really wanted to screw up our sleeping patterns :)
the zombie night must be done at some point.
'Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things'
I've wanted to see that for ages.
It's pretty 'seminal' though, isn't it, for being one of the only zombie films made shortly after Night of the Living Dead that's any good?
That's a clumsy sentence if ever I saw one.
some of the french templar films are well worth a watch too. but now, i'm off to bed. more zombies another time!
this is why. They are special zombies who draw in blood from their surroundings using their ear, thus constantly gaining in strength....*abandon reply*
Maybe if she looked for cars she wouldn't have been hit....
