DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004) Sheriff: "Danny, put another round in that woman over there! Look! She's a twitcher!" An injection of mordant wit and a transfusion of black humour ensured that Zack Snyder's remake of the George A Romero horror classic isn't braindead. A cross-section of American society hides inside a Milwaukee shopping mall while zombies threateningly maraud outside. George, Talent O'Port, Dead 2004, Romero, Zombies Director

Official Selection: The Evolution of Zombies - In all my years, there is only one thing that terrifies me more than anything else: Airplane food (am I right, guys. It’s so awful). I’m also a little bit scared of zombies. Zombies have existed in popular culture since 1929 in the book The Magic Island, but did not become prominent in people’s minds until George A. Romero made Night of the Living Dead in 1968. #Zombies #Vlizzards
DAY OF THE DEAD (1985) Dr Logan: "It wants me! It wants food! But it has no stomach, can take no nourishment from what it ingests. It's acting on INSTINCT!" A small handful of surviving humans is holed up in a claustrophobic missile silo, where the military members of the group are at odds with the scientists. Among them is the crazed Dr Logan who is experimenting at trying to 'tame' the zombies and Sarah, a doctor who is attempting to reverse the process of the dead returning to life.
THE EVIL DEAD (1981) Ash: "You b*****ds, why are you torturing me like this? Why?" Sam Raimi and friends created the world's first rock and roll fright film. Plots don't come much simpler - five friends travel to a cabin in the woods where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons - but the controversy it created resulted in the "zombies make mincemeat of teens in the woods" shocker only finally being seen uncut by British horror fans in 2001.
"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith. Couldn't resist & couldn't stop roaring with laughter. 4 stars...highly recommended. via Quirk Books
