- I Am Legend. Again, NOT a Zombie novel. Vampires. One of the most dark and depressing books I've ever read. Had they made the movie just like the book, it would have lost money. I see a lot of people singing the praises of this book, and I just don't get it.
- DEAD: The Ugly Beginning by TW Brown: The book was not awful otherwise, but the rape scenarios seemed unending to me and wayyy over the edge of what I'm willing to picture in my mind for entertainment purposes. Much too dark and descriptive. (Rape of young girl. Rape of woman while she's being attacked by zombies) I would have followed the series otherwise, but I couldn't live with the dread of 'when is the next horrible rape scene coming?'. I ditched it and marked this author off my list.
Its characters are realistically self-centered, its apocalypse realistically dealt with more through text messaging and comment threads than through the main stream media, and its ending is different than any horror/zombie/apocalypse story ending I've ever read or heard of....
Currently, zombie films are very popular, and science fiction is climbing back to the pinnacle of success that it held in the latter half of the twentieth century, but the problem that these film types are facing is the need for new ideas....
My frustration with zombie books is that they all seem "cartoonish". The characters are usually cardboard cut-outs that don't change. The story usually falls apart into some crazy, last-stand with somebody with two machine guns in each hand cutting through like 100,000 zombies. The zombies usually inherit some type of supernatural power (mind communication, global awareness, etc). The protagonist is either super human, or makes ridiculous mistakes that plagues "B" horror films. BOOORINNNGG!
Daigle concluded – based on his personal affinity to zombie culture – that there are a similarities to the items one would need in a disaster kit and to those necessary to survive a zombie attack and that this unique connection would be relevant to a zombie crazed society....
Some may consider the so-called edge versus flat parry debate to be a non-issue and merely beating a dead horse. I disagree. Considering the frequency by which the question is still raised and the countless examples of edge-on-edge blocking found within stage combat, as well as the ubiquitous examples provided everywhere from modern saber fencing to sport kendo and even Star Wars light-sabers, the issue is more an undead zombie horse perpetually rising from the grave.
Finally, Christopher Walken has an excuse to be in a musical again, as he plays a pimp who whores out zombies for a fee. On top of that we get Anne Hathaway as the zombie/druggie prostitute who wants to change and Hugh Jackman as the wealthy businessman who wants to take her from her life of pain and rot. Throw in Tim Roth and Gary Oldman as two zombies who run around as comic relief, and Dame Judi Dench as the grand dame of all zombies, and you have a motion picture sensation of a lifetime! Thrills, Chills, And Spills…all YOUR pants!
Plot, plot, plot. Redeeming something or other. Plot, plot, plot. Noxeema and something regarding the current state of race relations in small-town America. Plot, plot, plot. Virgil beats the living Christ out of Stockard Channing. Plot, plot, plot. Everyone in town dresses up in drag, blah, blah blah, then BAM! FUCKING HORNY ZOMBIE COP! BLOOD! STRAWBERRIES!

As with , this series of promotional posters reveals a couple of new rules from Zombieland. Still unlikely to be part of the official canon, but here none-the-less.

Let’s face it, vampires are played out. Sparkles and sexiness vanquished their frightfulness in a way garlic and holy water never could. But the world needs a monster, particularly in tough times, so zombies have spent the last few years shambling in to fill the pop culture void. We play Plants vs. Zombies on our phones, watch The Walking Dead on TV, go on , run , and will almost certainly make World War Z (based on the 2006 book by Max Brooks, released today) one of the highest-grossing films of the summer. According to the Today show, the "" is worth more than $5.74 billion in the U.S. alone.
