Zombie Apocalypse & The Horde [Dec. 19th, 2010|11:05 pm]

[music |The Kinks - Lazy Sunday]

Ive added two more zombie films to my collection. Brief reviews are posted below for anyone crazy enough to be interested.

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE:

There are two basic types of zombie films, the really good well made ones and the absolute stinkers. Zombie Apocalpse breaks the mould by not quite managing to be either. For an independent production its clearly quite well put together but even though it manages to lift itself head and shoulders above the stinkers it rarely threatens to actually become any good. Its surprising that the film can be so consistently average yet is even more unsatisfying on some levels than films which truly suck. At least with the really bad films you can point at them and laugh at how dreadful they are. This is not a dreadful film (by zombie standards!) but its so mediocre it feels like it is.

THE HORDE:

This is a French Zombie film and manages to carve a little space for itself as it distinguishes itself from the pack. The film-makers have tried for something a little different by setting the first part of the film in a cops and robbers type genre - until hell (more or less literally) breaks loose. A disparate alliance of cops and gangsters are forced together to try to fight their way out of a block of high-rise flats just as the neighbourhood has gone zombie. I think the film that it is most similar to is REC, but while it isnt quite that good it manages to remain very much its own beast and is worth a look.

Hi.
I'm Kate Webber.
The Year is 2039.
God, I'm a nervous wreck. I don't even know what I'm doing here.
For some reason, posting all this seems like it might be a good idea.

Clicking on that little play arrow above will let you listen in on a pre-recorded entry.
I plan on doing one a day, for as long as I can.

 With the recent discovery of some weird ass gene that reanimates corpses, I guess we're all just trying to prepare. Other bloggers are posting and making their own records of escape routes, should the worst come about. The East coast seems safe for now.
Please, try to survive.
Good luck.

Monster Planet [Jul. 26th, 2010|12:04 am]

[music |The Enemy - We Live And Die In These Towns]

This week I have been mostly reading: Monster Planet by David Wellington

This is the third book in a promising but slightly underwhelming trilogy. WHile the original take on the zombie apocalypse should be welcomed the further the story moved away from the zombies (and towards undead wizards and such like) the less enjoyable I found it. By the end of the trilogy this could have been any fantasy novel, anywhere, the zombie component relegated to a backdrop.
The third book held together slightly better than the second but like the Matrix trilogy were both poor compared to the first installment. The one thing the third book did have which I thoroughly enjoyed and think could look fantastic on the big screen was an epic final battle with zombies, sprinting ghouls, mummies, undead wizards and a werewolf (among others). That was a bit of a giggle, but not enough to save the book or the trilogy.

This week I have been mostly reading: It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Zombies: A Book Of Zombie Christmas Carols by Christopher Moore.

I picked this up just before xmas (along with Zombie Scrooge) but have only just got around to reading it. Its really good fun and contains gems like "Rudolph the zombie reindeer" and "I saw mummy chewing Santa Claus!"

Not all the versions are funny but there is an impressive array and plenty of giggles to be had.

I have taken Great Expectations and modified it slightly.  It is now Pip and the Zombies.  I'm quite pleased with it and if you are interested, a preview can be found at www.pipandthezombies.com.  I'm working on Book 2: Philip Pirrip, Zombie Slayer.

This week I have been mostly reading: Breathers by S.G. Browne

Its a fun yarn told from a zombie perspective and is set in a world where zombies have only recently started re-animating. The zombies here are:

a) conscious, relatively articulate beings
b) stripped of any rights of citizenship and are generally persecuted by the public (and)
c) havent discovered the delights of eating human flesh... yet!

Plague Of The Dead [Feb. 4th, 2010|12:06 am]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[music |Boss Hogg - Itchy & Scratchy]

This week I have been mostly reading: The Morningstar Strain: Plague Of The Dead by Z.A.Recht. Its a very entertaining read. It has very a credible scenario for the outbreak of a zombie virus, where and how an outbreak could start and spread and a very plausible account of how the authorities would completely mishandle the affair. Combine this with the other required elements of a zombie story i.e. believable characters you actually give a toss about trying to survive the zombie peril and you actually have a good read.
I have another of the Morningstar strain books which I plan to read soon but it is sad to note that Recht passed away recently so there wont be too much more of this stuff.
