Live bloggin' Quarantine:
(It's a more manly way to divert my eyes from the screen, rather than putting my hands over my face during scary scenes.)
Things about zombie flicks that scare me:
1. The animal-like growl that comes from zombies just before they attack.
2. The sound of flesh being torn from the neck of the person being eaten.
3. Thick, rabies-like foam that drips from the mouths of the undead.
4. Kids that turn into zombies.
What takes those who are not yet infected so long to figure out what's going on? In real life, if I see a 60 year old woman bite into the neck of a person like it's a rib-eye, I'm screaming:...
"Zoooommmbie!!" ...and running like hell.
Twenty minutes into the movie, and Mrs. Film Geek has already passed judgment: "It's no 28 Days!" she says. I think the hand-held camera effect reminds me of Cloverfield.
Dude, uhhh.....that federal agent just drilled into that zombie's brain with a power-tool. That's worse than the foamy mouth thing.
Zombies make me scream like a girl.
Note to self: If I ever stumble across a kid standing in a dark corner, staring blankly at me with blood and foam dripping from her mouth, DO NOT try to pick her up and carry her to safety. THE KID IS A ZOMBIE!
Biological warfare and doomsday cults are good for nothin' but zombies!
