Every one loves horror movies. Every one loves zombie movies.
Well, if they don't, they are stupid.
I happen to be a huge Simon Pegg fan, so my little heart went all pitter pat when I saw that not only did a movie combine my love of Simon, but of zombies as well.
The movie that took my heart was, of course:
Shaun Of The Dead
Geeky heavy drinking, doofy friend having, home appliance salesman must save his girlfriend and basically all of the UK from the zombie horde. Where else do you do that except from a booth at the local pub, the Winchester Arms. Naturally, such a hero would never kill his best friend when he becomes infected, so keeping him chained up in the lawn storage shed to play video games with is the greatest idea ever.
Seems perfectly logical to me.
If you haven't seen SOTD yet, you have been living under a gravestone and I feel bad for you. Go watch it for goodness sake!
Now, here is one I will bet 99% of you have never heard of. 99% of you never would except for lil ole me sharing this flick with you. Personally, it showed up on the ad feed on Facebook of all places.
The name of the silent diamond in the rough?
Juan Of The Dead
You heard me right: Juan Of The Dead.
Juan is an out-of-work fisherman who spends most of his time hanging out with his buddy, Lazaro, drinking (duh), chilling on the roof of their apartment building, and having sex with the married chick one floor below. On one particular fishing trip, they accidently snag a zombie, but decide to keep it to themselves. Suddenly, all hell breaks loose on the streets of Cuba as the undead begin to take over. Naturally, the Cuban government blames the zombie takeover as American propaganda, calls the zombies "dissidents" and tells everyone to just live life as normal. Juan and Lazaro know that will never happen. Along with their kids they start a business called "Juan Of The Dead". Their tagline is:
"Juan de los muertos, matamos a sus seres queridos. ¿En qué puedo ayudarle?"
or, for the none Spanish speaking types:
"Juan of the dead, we kill your loved ones. How can I help you?"
Come on, how can you *not* love that?
They spend the rest of the time trying to figure out how to survive and, well, if you want to learn more, watch it. It is good fun, I promise.
There you go. Shaun and Juan, out to save you, me, and all the little pygmies from the zombie hordes.
Ain't life grande?
Peace, Love and (i need a cool tagline too!) Zombies \IiiI
