You know the Halloween season is in full swing when the Zombies start coming out of the woodwork. ZOMBIELAND promises to be the Primo un-dead movie of the year, with Woody Harrelson & Jesse Eisenberg knocking the brains out of more walking dead than Planters has peanuts. What I already like about this movie is the way the art director has handled the look of it…the amusement park, the logo, even Woody’s hat have a distinctive little retro jive to them, which sets us up for what should be an old-time Zombie-bashing flick with plenty of blood and plenty of laughs to go with it.
But wait! There’s more! It just wouldn’t be Halloween without a good old-fashioned Michael Meyers Halloween movie…and Rob Zombie has once again put his spin on the neo-classic with his gritty version of Halloween II, in theaters now. Haven’t seen it yet, but if it’s anything like his other movies, it will no doubt be a gruesome mix of 70’s Texas Chainsaw-style cinematography, 80’s body count and 00’s special effects. If you haven’t seen House of 1000 Corpses, see it. It’s one of the most disturbing (in a good way) movies I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Looking for some old time classic horror films to get you in the haunting mood? Coming up soon in a new post will be a groovin’ list of some best (and worst) B flicks of all time.
