Thursday Movie Picks: Zombie Movies

This is my first time participating in Wandering Through The Shelve's weekly series. The idea is to talk about three films that fit into the weekly theme. This week is zombie movies, so here are my favorites.

1) Dawn of the Dead (2004)

It's rare that a horror remake is better than the original, but I think this one absolutely is. It found a good balance of humor, gore, and just being generally interesting. 

2) Zombieland

I love the cast in this one. Plus, when I first saw this in theaters, it was one that served alcohol during the show, and that just enhanced the whole experience. 

3) Shaun of the Dead

I have yet to meet someone that doesn't like this film. This is a parody done right.

  5. Haven't seen the original Dawn of the Dead though so can't compare but I do like the remake. I'd like to watch the original someday. Great picks with the rest as well...some of the best the genre has to offer.

    1. I think both the original Dawn and Night of the Living Dead are pretty terrible. They didn't age well. Thanks for hosting!

  8. Dawn of the Dead was one of the better remakes I've seen, also one of the most frightening endings. Zombieland was so-so for me but Harrelson really made it worth seeing

  9. Those movies are definitely full of blood, gore and entertainment. Others might find them gruesome, but their plots will really keep you from turning your monitor off. Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading about more interesting movies in your future posts. Have a great day, Brittani! :)
