If I zombify you first, Lona, I’m dragging you to see a chick flick before doing so (I’ll drag Noel too while I’m at it) – special torture. I’d be a mischievious zombie. Just sayin’.
I feel I hardly deserve this, especially after my very generous zombification (yeah, that word’s a stretch) offer.
I don’t think I’d be taking that into consideration once I’m “zombifareous” (heh, I’m trying to think of more words here, I admit I’m reaching a bit with that one).
But zombification is legit.
I think the correct term is ‘zombiferous’.
Safari spell-check led me astray…
Yep. It’s totally going to stay that way.
I am challenged.
My apologies, young ladies! You’re all the exception of course. I’m just talking in general man-speak I’m afraid, nothin’ personal.
So you mean to say that 28 Days Later is what got you that fear? You didn’t already have it from Omega Man ?
Dude has to watch the same movie over and over and over again….
Twilight Zone did it first. Burgess Meredith.
Yeah Lona, nothing personal about the whole dragging thing, it’s just zombillitis getting the better of me. I’ll accept Uli as an appropriate substitute.
Yeah but that was books.
An even more visual medium, so the film version is weaker by comparison.
How about Umberto Eco’s The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana? What if, somehow, one lost all their memories AND was in an apocalyptic zombie scenario? And the only way of knowing anything about anything is by reading books … and the metropolitan library is filled with “bookworm” (and “wormed”) zombies? Not fun.
EDIT: I’m combining scenarios of course, but the memory thing is from Eco, heh.
I’ve only read Foucault’s Pendulum, but that sounds intriguing.
I’m not offended, Deckard.
i learned how to drive clutch just in case of the zombie Apocalypse, and also how to speak spanish.
Who gives a shit about film when you’re practically living in one?
I mean, after hacking Zeds with a machete you’d probably think film is boring and tame.
I feel like almost everyone here would disagree with that…
I know seriously, after you’ve spent a hard day defending your existence, hacking off a few zombie heads, you want to come home, put your feet up and watch a good flick. I think the only thing that will have changed, I guess is that zombie films wouldn’t be half as entertaining, they would probably need to be filled under educational.
true, true, but I mean after years of escaping/killing zombies, seeing your friends get maimed etc, it’s hard to know if you’d ever get out of “survival mode” enough to sit down and enjoy movies.
Well there will probably be a short stint of renegade filmmakers, making documentaries of the zombies, or using the zombies to fuel their actors emotions. Romero will document his last days.
The Twilight Zone episode Time Enough At Last deals with this very subject. but with books, not films.
