The Best Zombie Movies I Love to Watch!

Here is a list of zombie films I love to watch.

1. The Return of the Living Dead – The best zombie ever in my opinion. The dialogue is incredible. The characters are mind boggling. The music is amazing. And a naked zombie!  I get dizzy watching it.

2. Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse– I co-wrote this film and it’s funny as fuck!!!! A zombie apocalypse takes place while people are in a haunted attraction. Watch the film here.

3. Night of the Living Dead– 1990 version. – This movie is depressing and real to me. It seems real to me and sad.

4. Planet Terror– It’s action packed and over-the-top. It’s all about the characters in these movies. If your cast sucks then so does your movie. These characters are amazing.

5. Night of the Comet– Ummmm Valley girls fighting zombies. YES!

6. Pet Sematary– One word “CHURCH”. That cat should have gotten and Oscar too.

7. Dawn of the Dead– 2004.- When I saw this I felt dread and the end of the world would not be cool. It looked horrifying.

8. Night of the Living Dead– 1968 – It’s an old cut but it has great moments. The world part is the catatonic blonde girl. She is the worst.

9. Otto; or, Up with Dead People– Gay zombies enough said. Watch it.

10. Zombieland– This was a lot of fun to watch and filmed in Georgia.

11. Warm Bodies– A zombie love story that was cute and fun.

12. 28 Days Later…– This one is great but zombies didn’t run first in this movie. They ran in Return of the Living Dead.

13. The Horde– This movie is nuts and over-the-top. It involves cops, gangsters and zombies.

14. Dance of the Dead– This movie feels like the director loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Return of the Living Dead. So it’s fun. Zombies show up to the prom.

15. ParaNorman– This movie is amazing and fun to watch. Zombies for the whole family bitch!

“Ma” or “The Party of the year” – my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Ma“. Listen maybe you are on the fence about this? or maybe you want to have a good time and see MA!

Okay the movie starts off with a mother and daughter moving to a new town. There the daughter meets the local teens and they all start hanging. One day they want to get lit as fuck but aren’t old enough to buy booze, so they see MA (Octavia Spencer) and ask her if she will buy the booze for them. She does but gets them to come over to her basement to party. It’s a good time and they all become friends until MA gets possessive and controlling and doesn’t want to drink alone. The shit gets crazy and people die! In the end you realize you have never partied until you partied with MA.

WOW! Okay I loved this movie and it really was crazy as fuck. Octavia Spencer is giving it to you in this. She is living her best goddamn life. Dancing, partying and killing. It is one of the most fun movies of the year. You will want to hang out with MA. I love that there are flashbacks to her in High School. Showing what made her angry. Like “Prom Night” etc. It feels like an 80’s horror movie at times for sure. I love when horror reflects what is going in society at that time. The lesson is shit you say and do in the past will come back and haunt you. Like on Facebook/Instagram in the real world today. The teens are fun and memorable, and you will like hanging with them for the length of the film. There are some crazy things they show in this movie and we are there for it. MA come through! You really will be entertained by this movie and want to see a sequel the second you leave the theater. Go so MA for a good time! I am buying this movie when it drops!

The Trailer:

The Facts:

A. Octavia Spencer was great in this film. She had fun with it and lived it! I hope they make MA 2: Spring Break

B. Ma’s theme song is amazing.

D. Juliette Lewis was great in this. I feel like I understand her more now that she is older.

E. Corey Fogelmanis (Mostly Ghostly: One Night in Doom House, PrankMe) was the teen twink in this and he got to make out with MA. Yes to all this fucked up shit!

F. Gregory Tripi composed the score (The Fix) sort of a new composer but I was into it. Take a listen

G. I want this poster. What I really want is a standee of MA to take pics with!

“US” or “Tether My Ass Scared” – my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Us“. This is Jordan Peele‘s second film! Will it be as good as GET OUT? Is he a one hit wonder or whatever?

Okay so this movie starts off with a little girl who gets lost at the LOST BOYS amusement park on the beach. She ends up in a fun house and runs into Doppelganger down there. She gets back with her parents and she is scared for years. Later the little girl grows up to be Lupita Nyong’o and she is married now and has kids. Now they are all headed back to the beach for fun, Lupita hates the beach because she saw that creepy twin of hers there. It’s night-time and now there is a sketchy family attacked them who also looks just like them. Their doppelgänger/twins hate them and want to see them dead. The chase is on and these Tethered evil twins want blood. In the end you must fight your real enemy who happens to be yourself.

Okay Jordan Peele is giving it to us. You can see he loves horror films from the past, but he is giving his new life. Lupita Nyong’o is amazing in this film as both good and evil characters. So much so you don’t even know who to root for. She really is great in this movie. The whole family is amazing, both versions of them. One family you love because they are fun-loving and real. The other family you love because they are scary and mean as hell. Listen its 2019 and audiences want their horror movies to be smart and witty. This one is both. There is a line that Adelaide Wilson says to her daughter when the shit is about to hit the fan, “Go put your shoes on”. That one line really sums up how smart this movie is. We are so used to seeing dummies in horror movies run around and not think or be prepared (not all horror movies but a lot of them). I really love that line. In the movie “The StrangersLiv Tyler character is bare foot and when shit is going down you see her literally push shoes out-of-the-way. She should be putting shoes on and getting ready to fight. She doesn’t. The Wilson family in “Us” is smart and ready for action.

There are some parts that you will figure out early on, but even then you will think, did I really figure it out. It really keeps you guessing about everyone and even after it is over you will be thinking back about the film and realizing new shit. I bet if you watch this movie 5 more times you will still be learning and seeing secrets. I love the whole idea about being tethered to a bad you, that you want to get rid of. I love that your worst enemy is you. I love that maybe you yourself are the bad person. I love that the government is involved. I love their costumes. It really gives it to you. We can write pages about this movie but stopping reading spoilers and go see the movie and see what your perception of the movie will be. You will be scared and entertained the whole way through.

 

The Trailer:

The Facts:

A. Jordan Peele is popping off! We are excited for more films by him. He really is making scary and smart horror films.

B. Lupita Nyong’o listen she is giving it to you in this movie on all levels. 

C. A detailed article about the film. In case you are lost or something.

D. If you are still feeling lost after the movie here is another link that explains some things. It’s interesting. A lot I missed.

E. A new theory that Michael Myers is tethered.

F. This costume is scary and will look good this Halloween.

G. Mixing this song into score is brilliant and also mocks other horror films for always slowing down rock songs to a creepy version. The score was composed by Michael Abels (Get Out ) and so far 2 great scores.

H. Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) were great in this and fun to watch.

I. What a great poster.

 

“Halloween” 2018 or “The Year of Halloween”- My fuckin review

Here is my review for “Halloween” 2018. Listen I love the Halloween movies. I love the music and the characters and Michael Myers. I was so excited to see this movie and the new swag/merch that has come out this year for the Halloween movies is nuts. It’s a great time to be alive for Halloween. Okay so this movie takes place right after the first Halloween movie back in 1978. The others movies do not exist. It’s 40 years later and Michael has been locked up in Smith’s Grove this whole time. Laurie is a Doomsday Prepper and has been stockpiling weapons etc. She has a Daughter named Karen and Granddaughter named Allyson. They both think Granny is crazy from her ordeal back in the day. Ya know get over it. Now Michael has escaped and he is out looking for blood and Laurie. Laurie is dealing with stress and emotional issues but you can’t shut Laurie Strode down. Michael starts killing everyone and he means business, it’s get gory as fuck. In the end it’s the 40 year reunion of Michael and Laurie. Who will get their asses handed to them this time!

Okay so I felt overwhelmed watching this movie. I have been waiting so long for it to come out and I was like HOLY SHIT! I love the Laurie Strode character on any timeline. You really just feel sad for her and her life this time because Michael fucked her shit up. I even love the dynamic between Laurie and her daughter. You know mothers and daughters don’t get along etc., but Laurie and her granddaughter do. I even love how it’s really about women empowerment. It always has been. In Halloween 1 Laurie was strong and smart. She is stronger and smarter now. She is trying to live with the shit that happened to her, like a lot of women do today. I love the “New” Loomis, because he is not Loomis at all. It reminded me of Dr. Wynn from part 1 and 6. That’s the thing too, there are nods to all the films but in subtle ways that fans would probably know. Mrs. Elrod from part 2 is in there! Yes!

Michael was scary again in this one too. Micheal’s walk was great. He even sells it with the standing around. In 4-8 he really wasn’t scary to me. The mask looked great too and it’s what really sells him. A lot of the masks have looked like shit over the years. I really love that he is walking the suburban streets again and just killing people, but not everyone. I love that he doesn’t kill everyone, that’s the way he was in part 1 and 2. Skip over some people. The score by John Carpenter was incredible, his music is amazing to me and always feels right. It makes a difference in having him compose the score again. Halloween 4 and 5 scores are pretty good, 6 is a lot, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later is too hollywood and uses a big orchestra, Part 8 is terrible. Rob Zombie’s movie scores for his remakes are just noises and sound effects really. So it makes a difference to have Carpenter on it again. They did a great job shooting a lot of the Michael Myers stuff, but I do wish it was more “Halloween” season atmospheric. Even part 4 has a great opening and you feel like it’s Halloween in that movie. Something quiet and dark about it all.

Is it perfect? No, but how do they make it perfect? I have no idea. Did the English Podcast people get on my nerves? Yes. I do miss that Laurie is his sister. I loved that. It scared me in Halloween 2. I also wish it was longer. More Showdown and more Teen dialogue, but I get why it couldn’t be longer. I also wish it had more nods to the other Halloween movies, but loved what they showed. Even the Jamie Lloyd nod at the end was great.

It was made for fans of the Halloween series for sure. It may not be what everyone wanted but it gave me what I needed and I hope they make another one. I have learned with horror sequels when someone watches one of these movies when they are young that’s the one they liked and think is scary. When people get older, obviously they are not scared like they were when they were watching it at 15 years old or whatever. The world is a real scary place now. So it’s hard to submit to horror movies as an adult. Scary is relative and always will be. One persons nightmares is another persons action adventure or whatever. When you see anything with young/fresh eyes it’s new and scary. When I watch horror movies now I try to think, would this scare me if I was in it. It does and I loved it. It’s great to see theses characters again also in something new. It feels like friends of yours that you get to see again. Also Michael Myers is like Dracula now and timeless. We will always see him in different movies in the future like Dracula. The fun thing is that you have 11 Halloween films to choose from to watch and love whichever one you want to. Even the worst one is still pretty good. I think the new one is scary and moody and depressing.  Anyway so go see this movie and love it or hate it. You will still be entertained by it. It’s Michael Myers and Laurie Strode! She is a 59-year-old woman who is the lead in the number horror movie right now. That’s amazing!

“The Nun” or “Hell to the Nun” my fucking review

Here is my review for “he Nun“. Okay so this is a spin off from “The Conjuring 2“. Which I loved. The nun was creepy and fun in that movie etc. This new film starts off with scenes from ”The Conjuring 2‘ then it goes back in time to the 1950’s. It takes place in a Nun Castle where the evil nun lives. I’m not sure why she is there. The evil nun is killing other nuns and now this boring Priest, a not nun (she is not a nun yet), and a hot dude from Canada all head to the nun castle to see what’s up. The hot Canadian is there for a “Love Interest” for the Not Nun. Which is weird. Are they going to bang or something. Wtf. She is a nun. Anyway they realize there is an evil nun doing crazy shit and decide to stay. All 3 characters are boring and poorly equipped to deal with this demon nun. They run around for an hour and the nun is coming out of the goddamn walls to get them. In the end we find out the hot dude is really French Canadian, the priest is not good at his job, and the not nun becomes a full nun and does a trick she learned from Jada Pinkett Smith from “Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight” (a fun movie watch it) to kill the evil nun. Well not kill because she is in the Conjuring 2 in the future.

Okay so this movie is just dumb. I love The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2. They both have an interesting story, and it’s based on reality. The Nun is made up. Annabelle 1 and 2 are made up. You can tell because they are dumb movies. The Nun has a basic horror storyline, ya know investigate an evil thing somewhere, stay cuz you dumb, then fight it and good wins. They only thing unique about it is that they are all wearing nun outfits. The cast is literally made up of 3 people and all 3 people are boring and forgettable. It takes place in 1950 but it feels like 1850. It’s weird. The dialogue is generic and weak. The score is silly. Did I hate the movie? No, but it’s like who cares though. Even in the ending there is a hell mouth to close, and that was 7 years of Buffy. The blood of Jesus trick they use in it is from Demon Knight. Maybe they love those movies, but we have seen those tricks ya know. I really didn’t expect much. I thought it would be like Annabelle. Bad, and it was. Director James Wan directed The Conjuring and Conjuring 2 and he didn’t direct this movie and you can tell. He really is a good director and this movie feels like a quick gimmick. You may say will this movie is different or it’s this or that. Well they keep harping on how these films being spin offs from the Conjuring universe, but they don’t feel like it. You set up the universe now don’t blame me when I tell you it doesn’t fit in the world you created. Sorry I will have nun of that shit. Anyway I guess watch it on Netflix and roll your eyes etc.

The Trailer:

The Facts:

A. Taissa Farmiga was boring in this movie. Maybe she is boring in everything and I never paid attention enough.

B. Bonnie Aarons played the Nun in this movie and The Conjuring 2. Good for her though.

C. Directed by Corin Hardy (The HallowThe Prodigy: Warrior’s Dance).

His best work is this music video.

D. Jonas Bloquet (Elle) plays the French Canadian. The nun didn’t bang him. 

E. She hungry.

F. The music was composed by Abel Korzeniowski (Penny Dreadful) it was boring. Joseph Bishara composed The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Insidious and those scores are great and scary. Scores really do make the horror movie. If your score is weak so is your movie. 

Here is sample:

G. We made a Nun movie earlier this year. Check it out. It Makes more sense.

H. This poster is creepy.
