Halloween Takeover: Zombies!


Today is all about ZOMBIES! I don't have a ton of favorites since zombies are actually a pretty big fear of mine but there ARE a few that I love that are worth mentioning!

MOVIES:

Zombieland - Favorite zombie movie ever. Hands down. And not just because Emma Stone - my favorite actress - stars in it. This movie is hilarious and heartfelt and most importantly ... NOT DEPRESSING.

Shaun of the Dead - I'd imagine this one is on everybody's list but it had to be mentioned because I absolutely think it's one of the greatest zombie movies ever made! Simon Pegg and Nick Frost never fail to make me laugh.

Warm Bodies - LOVE this movie and the book (check out my review here) by Isaac Marion is even better! A lot of horror fans kind of shunned this one but there's nothing wrong with a different, uplifting take on the undead, is there? Plus Nicholas Hoult is one sexy zombie.

TELEVISION:

The Walking Dead - I tried watching this show when it first premiered on Halloween night three years ago but it seemed a lot like the opening to the movie 28 Days Later and I was a bit unimpressed. But then, before the premiere of season three, I was bored and turned on one of the marathons AMC runs before a premiere. And I was immediately hooked. It's scary but thrilling and Daryl Dixon and I just want Carl to be eaten and GAH - gives me so many feels!

BOOKS:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - The first zombie novel I ever read. This book is so terrifying and emotional and gut-wrenching and I loved every second of it. And I think the companion novels - The Dead-Tossed Waves and The Dark and Hollow Places are even better!

Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow - In this series, Dru Anderson has to fight all kinds of supernatural stuff but the zombie scenes are my favorite because they're always a bit more intense!

  1. I love the Forest Of Hands And Teeth - that whole trilogy is fantastic. I like how it all came together.

    I agree about not having a ton of favorite zombie movies -- but Shaun Of The Dead is on my list for sure.

    I have to admit that I got nightmares from the new version of Dawn Of The Dead and also had like night terrors for the longest time over 28 Days Later. Scary stuff, yo.

    What a fun Halloween feature!
