Finally say "28 Days Later."

Hmm. Not bad. About as good as a zombie movie gets, I suppose. Not that scary, although the fast, rasping zombies were rather more alarming than shambling "Braaaaaiins..." types. Although, as with many horror movies, I found myself saying, over and over, "Stupid, stupid people." "I know there are zombies in dark rooms, and I know this place is chock full 'o bodies, but I'm going to go poking around alone, with only a baseball bat, because I'm bored!"

If I am ever in a zombie movie, I anticipate dying off-screen in the inital wave of carnage, because I will be busy thinking about painting wombats and will thus answer the door with a paintbrush in my teeth, and my dying thought will probably be "Hey, these don't look like Jehovah's Witnesses." Thus I will never get a chance to demonstrate my amazing intellect by not poking around in dark cellars, staying with the group, sitting quietly when people who know more about it than I do tell me not to turn on any lights, and never, NEVER, going back for the cat (I love the cat dearly, but I'd have let the alien eat it) etc, but I assure you, it would've been inspiring.

No blooper reel, though. Guess it just wasn't that kind of flick.

A big thanks to everyone who suggest t-shirt and sketch ideas! I'll be working on those--expect the auctions to start up near the end of the week. Y'all rock.

My fiance and I just saw Dawn of the Dead this past Sunday (we saw 28 Days Later on our second date), and it also has fast-moving, feral zombies, which I quite prefer over the slowly ambling, clumsy ones, which have never seemed particularly threatening to me (if I can out run them or easily knock them over with a well-placed swat with a 2x4, I'm not that worried).

I definitely liked 28 Days Later, but I have to say that Dawn of the Dead had me twitching in my seat, which I almost *never* do at horror movies (either because I'm desensitized because of having watched so much of the horror genre in my time, or because I'm just that sick, I dunno), so if you get a chance, I'd definitely recommend seeing it (you'll still have to put up with people doing stupid stuff, as in all horror movies, but I think they were on the whole a little smarter in Dawn of the Dead than in most. The constant bickering was a little annoying, though. And there's a girl that goes after a dog she gets attached to, but she's just a teenager and her whole family died when the carnage started, so I guess it's understandable why she'd make what is obvious to those of us on the outside as a bad choice).
