Movie Review: Night of the Living Deb

This week I’ve got a goody, at least in my opinion. I’m reviewing Night of the Living Deb. Here’s what it’s about: “After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door… into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. … Read more

Movie Review: Freaks of Nature

This week I’m reviewing Freaks of Nature, a mishmash of  zombies, vampires, and aliens. Here’s what it’s about: “In Freaks of Nature, we welcome you to Dillford, where three days ago, everything was peaceful and business as usual: the vampires were at the top of the social order, the zombies were at the bottom, and the humans were getting along in the middle. But this delicate balance was ripped apart when the alien apocalypse arrived … Read more

This week I’m reviewing The Horde (2009) for my monthly zombie movie choice. And in February I’m featuring a woman in my choices for Women in Horror Month. Here’s what the movie is about about: “A posse of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead are the centre point of this gruesome, tight, action packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape. Penned like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise … Read more

Movie Review: Cooties

More zombies this week. During a little holiday downtime I watched Cooties, Here’s what it’s about: “COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who … Read more

Remembering King of the Zombies

It’s been awhile since I reviewed a zombie movie. I got a bit reminiscent when I saw King of the Zombies on TCM channel. I’ve seen this movie a number of times and couldn’t pass up another viewing. Here’s what it’s about: “During World War 2, a small plane off the south coast of America is low on fuel and blown off course by a storm. Guided by a faint radio signal, they crashland on … Read more

TV Review: The Walking Dead Season 7 Premier

This week was the season 7 premier of The Walking Dead, so I thought it fitting to tell you my thoughts. I won’t bother to tell you what the show is about and just jump in this time. YES, THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED. It fell a little short for me. While I watched I was sick to my stomach, a thing that typically happens when I watch one of the more … Read more

It’s silly … Read more

Movie Review: I Survived a Zombie Holocaust

Back on zombies this week with I Survived a Zombie Holocaust. Here’s what it’s about: “A young runner, on a Zombie film set, has the first day from hell when real Zombies overrun the set.” They could have come up with a better title for this one. The current title has nothing to do with the plot. Anyway, I didn’t hate this movie. It’s very slow to start, and the kind of zombie movie you … Read more

Movie Review: Navy Seals vs. Zombies

Try not to fall asleep during this week’s review of Navy Seals vs. Zombies Here’s what it’s about: “A team of highly skilled Navy SEALS find themselves embarking on the battle of their lives when they come face-to-face with the undead.

Movie Review: Mimesis

YAY! A zombie movie review this week. Well, Mimesis is kind of a zombie movie. Here’s what it’s about: “A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.” The ‘classic horror film’ is Night of the Living Dead. What’s hilarious is that the description for the movie is a spoiler. It’s better to go into this movie having not read that … Read more

Movie Review: Kill Zombie (a.k.a Zombibi)

*SQUEAL* I found another zombie movie I loved! Here’s what Kill Zombie is about: “The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. Although much blood is flowing and many limbs chopped off, there is a lot to laugh at in this bizarre horror comedy.” Kill Zombie is a horror comedy movie, so of course it was a perfect choice to watch one afternoon I was feeling particularly low. … Read more

TV Series Review: Fear the Walking Dead (Season 2)

I’m happy to say that Fear the Walking Dead has improved. If you read my review of the first season, you know I thought it totally sucked, but I had high hopes that the show would improve, and it did. Once they got on the boat, they had a lot of time to think about their circumstances, and their reactions to their new world were much better portrayed in season 2, although it did take … Read more
