|"More brains!" - zombie, Return of the Living Dead|
As much as I'd like to claim something like Return of the Living Dead as my favorite, I simply cannot.Though it was full of running zombies (that even talked! haha!) and was reminiscent of the the 1980's, I had to pick something that made me stomp my feet in the theater to help the people on the screen run faster - away from the horde of zombies. And though this horde isn't technically a zombie horde, it carries the same kind of elements as one.
I'm talking about the 28 Days/Weeks movies.
Can I choose between the two? I can't. They both bring different but powerful elements to the screen.
And Cillian Murphy was beautiful in it, I must say!
Jeremy Renner stole my heart in this one. I can't wait to see him as Hawkeye in The Avengers next Spring!

And in both movies, you are given a second enemy. Those you entrust to protect you.
I've already blogged on zombies earlier this month (Dawn of the Dead remake), so I'll make this short and sweet. I like fast moving zombies. The "zombies" in the 28 movies are speedy, but they don't feed on flesh. They just want to rip you apart. Rage - true to its name, once exposed, you are infected and the symptoms appear within seconds, so one must act quickly to eliminate the new "zombie".
For the record, I would not be upset if their was a 28 Months Later.
