Deja Vu All Over Again
Like Mario, I'm rewriting the manuscript of my second novel. I don't mind. I can always improve something.
My editor was not keen on an incubus subplot. Incubi are not as much fun as vampires. Okay, incubi are kinda of the loozers of the demon world, but they're not as creepy as zombies, which I think anyone will agree.
Zombies make for slow fiction, but I think they are terrific in movies. Here are some of my top zombie movie pics:Night of the Living Dead
: George Romero's classic film about the rotting dead and the people who get eaten by them.Sean of the Dead
: Slackers, zombies, heartbreak, beer and a great soundtrack.I Walked with a Zombie
: A classic (1943) Gothic tale of a young woman from Canada who is hired to care for the wife of a wealthy plantation owner in the West Indies. Director Jacques Tourneur, who also directed "Cat People," made a beautifully shot and wonderfully creepy film.28 Days Later:
A guy wakes up from a coma and finds that zombies have destroyed the nation. A grim apocalyptic vision of modern society. Scary, smart, and well-made.Army of Darkness:
Hilarious adventures of a drug store clerk who is thrown into a world full of zombies, monsters, violence, and idiots. Bruce Campbell uses a chainsaw with zeal under Sam Raimi's direction. I think they made this movie for about $100 bucks, but the campy effects are part of the fun.
Anyone else have favorite zombie movies or zombified t.v. episodes? No, the last several seasons of "The Simpsons" doesn't count.
