Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…


ZOMBIELANDSony has released its trailer to Zombieland, a horror comedy starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. Directed by first timer Ruben Fleisher the film mixes laughs with scares and certainly reminds me of Shaun of the Dead. There’s no doubt the horror comedy is one of the toughest tightropes to walk as the “too much comedy in a zombie flick” is never a good thing, at least in my opinion.

While I’m a fan of Shaun of the Dead, I would argue that the 1985 Dan O’Bannon directed Return of the Living Dead is even better. It’s one of my top five all time favorite Zombie movies and a perfect example of how to execute this premise to perfection. As for Zombieland, it looks pretty good and I look forward to seeing it. It always exciting to see a major studio finance a film in this genre as it guarantees that it not only has an ample budget but will be properly marketed. Look for it to hit theaters Oct 9, 2009.  Take a LOOK
