31 Pin Days of Halloween- Day 15-Zombies
In the pantheon of horror classics, few stand taller than George Romero’s 1968 directorial debut, Night of the Living Dead. The story of a group of Pennsylvania strangers who find themselves trapped in a farmhouse surrounded by the undead, Romero’s groundbreaking indie never features the word “zombie” (its fiends are referred to as “ghouls”) and yet defined the reanimated creatures for the modern age, transforming them from black-magic Caribbean slaves (as in films such as 1932’s White Zombie and 1943’s I Walked With a Zombie) into rotting corpses with a single-minded hunger for human flesh — a legacy that shows no signs of abating thanks to the likes of Resident Evil, Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days Later and of course The Walking Dead. .
A stark, brutal, and bleak tale of survival that shocked audiences upon its release, Night of the Living Dead imagines chaos and annihilation coming not from invading extraterrestrials or supernatural monsters, but from ourselves. It was a new apocalyptic American nightmare steeped in contemporary anxieties, and that just celebrated its 50th anniversary (the dead rose on Oct. 1, 1968), it remains as potent both in terms of scares and allegorical power as ever.
Shaun of the Dead (2004) - 99 Minutes This review is going to be extremely biased due to the fact that I absolutely love this movie and it’s one of my favorites of all time. This movie has an amazing cast such as Simon Pegg and @friedgold as the main leads of this film. The movie also has an unbeatable story crafted by Simon Pegg and my favorite director of all time @edgarwright who has directed many other movies such as Baby Driver, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. The story has to me the best mixture of horror and comedy I have ever seen and the emotion in this film never feels forced at all and there is never a dull moment, it is always funny and it is extremely well crafted and every time I watch this movie I find something new about it and all the references to other horror movies to me is an extreme plus. This movie is an amazing cinematic masterpiece that I would for everyone to see especially this time of year but it is amazing at any time. Also for a challenge try to spot all of @edgarwright cameos in the movie I found them all on this watch. This movie is amazing and deserves to be watched so many times! @edgarwright@friedgold#shaunofthedead
MOVIE 23: SHAUN OF THE DEAD (2004) - @edgarwright and #SimonPegg are geniuses. Their work together on #Spaced is unparalleled, and their work since this, together and apart, is at the very least commendable (especially #BabyDriver, a masterpiece). As a #horror/#zombie fan, though, this is probably my favorite thing they've done together.
Much like #Scream, this is making fun of the subgenre, but at the same time is a great movie from that subgenre at the same time. Many fun references abound, like Shaun's job at "Foree Electric", and that his boss "Ash" is taking a sick day. He also tries to get a reservation at "Fulci's" Restaurant. There's too many more to list here.
Shaun of the dead - raison 2 : Parce que George Romero, grand ponte du film d'horreur, a adoubé cette parodie qui lui fait beaucoup de références, et qu'il fait partie des 20 films préférés de Quentin Tarantino.
Shaun of the dead - raison 3 : Pour le rythme mené tambour battant entre jeux de mots, clins d'oeil (ou de yeux), sous entendus, et autres références qui appellent quelques revisionnages pour tout capter.
