I've been thinking about Wild Zero a lot lately.  One thing that most people will probably miss is the following:

When Hanako and Toshi's station wagon pulls up to the gas station, there's a shot where you can see the license plate.  Where Japanese license plates have the prefecture name at the top, this one says "outer space."

That rules.

The Sci-fi will air two new zombie movies on October 15.

Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis
Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave

The rumors were true they did make more sequels.

Day of the Dead remake is coming out in 2007.  It will not be connected to the remake of Dawn of the Dead.  Ving Rhames will supposely be in this film only as a different character.

I'm excited that the remade Trilogy will be compele, but I'm a little skeptical about this film since Nick Cannon is in it.  He screws up every film he's been in.

Also this September: Night of the Living Dead 3-D.  A remake of NOTLD but in 3-D.  I'm interested in this.

I've seen the trailers for following zombie movies and they are sequels.

Day of the Dead remake-  It looks interesting.  Ving Rhames is back, but as a different character.

Resident Evil: Extinction- Looks good, though I'm a little skeptical about Ashanti being in this.  But I was wrong about Mike Epps being in Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and that film turned out okay.

28 Weeks Later- This is sequel I was waiting for.  I'm a little disappointed that Cillian Murphy and Naomie Harris aren't coming back.  Maybe they're trying to be like the original Living Dead Trilogy.  Have a new cast for every movie.

Anybody heard of this new Diary of the Dead coming out? Apparently it's set on the same night as the original Night of the Living Dead... GENTLEMEN, START YOUR CAMEOS

Although, The Diary of The Dead is a pretty dorky name.... they should have kept up the naming theme and called it The Evening of The Dead or The Breakfast of the Dead or something else stupid.   confused

28 weeks later is coming out soonish...

28 weeks after the first one, England has been completely cleared out, and they are starting to let people back in, but whoops! There's still one zombie there!

Hmm, I watched about 10 seconds of 28 days later to see Christopher Ecclestone before freaking out. i dont like zombie's at all.

My first zombie movie scared the shit out of me. Shaun of the Dead, whilst being very funny, gave me nightmares for two consecutive nights.

Although the outtake with Bill Nighy making that stupid sound made me piss myself. One in my Maths GCSE a while back. Nearly gotmyself into trouble for that.

They're not zombies, damnit! How many times do I have to explain this to people? If they can bleed to death, that means they're alive, and that means they're not zombies.

They may not be zombies, but they are zombie-ish.  They are mindless, futureless, killing creatures, but instead of desiring flesh or brains they desire blood.

That doesn't matter. A zombie is a dead person who for one reason or another is up walking around. That's it.

There can be all sorts of zombies, be they raised by a necromancer, caused by a chemical of a virus, or just be there for no explained reason.

They may have similarities to Romero zombies, but they are not dead. That means that they are not zombies.

Alright, fine don't call them zombies.  I never did, I just called them infected people who act like zombies. 

Ex: People told James Cameron back in 1984 that his first Terminator wasn't a sci-fi movie.

But regardless, people wanna say 28 Days Laters is a "zombie" movie then just let them.  I consider it a horror thrill ride with zombie-like terror.

I have a plan in the event of a zombie attack. I know where I'll hole up, how I'll make sure I have food and water for a few months, how I'll defend myself against the undead hordes, how I'll advertise my presence to other survivors, and how I will see off looters.

Since I live in England, my plan doesn't even involve guns. Of course, potential unfriendlies in the area will almost certainly provide me with a source of firearms and ammunition provided that I can take them out before they get to me. Which I also have contingency plans for.

I got really bored one day, y'see.

I bought the zombie survival guide. I don't even need a plan, it's all there in the book.

Of course, I plan anyway.

Zombies are a great metaphor for post-apocalyptic/SHTF scenario planning.  They're not an accurate rendition of said eventualities, but let's face it: if a survivalist is going to fantisize about killing people, he or she might as well imagine them as undead people...or robots.

That being said, Shaun of the Dead was bloody brilliant.  I can't wait for the non-zombie flick, Hot Fuzz, to come out stateside.

I am going to hide out on my mini roof outside my room, closing the window on the way out. I have some chocolate left over from my bday, so ill survive on that whilst I watch zombies eating people in my garden.

Im taking the duvet. If it happens at night or otherwise.

Im also going to close the curtains so zombies that could potentially be in my house dont see me, and im taking my mp3 player, so I can block out my noise.

And then...

I shall probably end up shitting myself.

I'll be in no need of a gun. Blunt trauma to the head should effectively destroy enough of the brain to de-animate a zombie. I'll have my golf club.

I'll also be holing up far from civilisation, near to an old but still working well, and near to a forest which I can use as fuel should I need to light a fire. I'll have a nearby monument to the Napoleonic wars to shelter inside at night, and to climb so as to be safe from attack. A ladder will be necessary, since I plan to destroy the stairs with a home-made explosive, but that should be easy enough to sort out.

There are sheep on the moors which will make an excellent source of meat when the villages below finally run out of supplies and my raids become fruitless.

I'll have, of course, a large supply of knives. Kitchen knives, bowie knives, machetes, table knives. Anything pointy. I'll raid houses, shops, churches, anywhere that looks like it will have more than one knife inside. Hell, I'll raid any building on the off chance that I can augment my knife collection with what I find.

I'll begin to take abandoned off-road vehicles so that I can get up and down the fellside more easily. I'll use them until they run too low on fuel to be of further use, and I'll leave them all over the hill top. If I fill them with dead wood, then when I need to, I can set them ablaze and light up the area.

Should any survivors happen by, I will evaluate the stuation. If they look like I can take 'em easily, I will kill them and loot the corpses. Perhaps I'll be in need of the meat. If I think they've got a chance of taking me down, 'll attempt to join up with them, maybe wait 'till they're asleep before slitting their throats.

When I feel that my position is no longer possible to maintain, I shall collect what fuel I've managed to scrounge, and the toughest vehicle still running. I'll head for the coast, and try to find a ship - better yet, a sub. I'll go as far as I can across the ocaen before hunger, fuel, the weather, or other circumstances prove to be my doom. It's a grim and bitter scenario, but better than the alternative.

If you are going to go all melee on zombies, bring a couple of old clothes you don't want to wash.

Just because it is a zombie apocalypse doesn't mean you can walk around with three week old zombie brains all over your favourite shirt. Especially if you have some old ones you want to throw out or give away to charity.

If it comes to that, I think I'll be done with clothing for good before that point. Boots, I might need. Pants? Shirts? Fuck that! Well. Maybe if it gets cold.

Part of the attraction of a total societal breakdown is that I could get away with wandering around naked - nobody would be around to care that I hadn't been bothered to put on clothes that morning.

I'd go with leather, or something else moderately bite-proof. And I will, of course use guns. Why bother getting myself all tired out? Of course, I will also carry a crowbar for bashing and prying.

Shotgun with silencer (if that's possible) is the way to go for me. Dont want any zombie trying to work out where I am.

In fact, I might just go downtown (under cover of darkness, smash a couple windows, take all teh CD's/DVD's etc Ive evern wanted, then sneak back to my room, barricade the door, and watch to take my mind off things.

..then starve to death.

Well, I'll get some food while im downtown.

That wouldn't work so well with me.  Non-zombies might see my pasty skin, bloated abdomen, and lumbering gait and immediately assume I was undead.

Shaun Of The Dead had it's scary moments.


I'm a little skeptical about 28 Weeks Later... It seems like Americans will just screw up the whole movie, I don't know how but they'll find a way.

You're scared of mice and spiders, but oh-so-much greater is your fear that one day the two species will cross-breed to form an all-powerful race of mice-spiders who will immobilize human beings in giant webs in order to steal cheese.
