Movie: #Zombies George A Romero – Survival of the Dead

My Take:

  • Filmed entirely in Canada, I therefore blame them.
  • Leave it to the Irish of Delaware to clean things up!
  • Alternate title: Darby O’Gill and the Zombie People or The Hatfields and the O’Flynns
  • “Dead Heads”
  • “There’s not another bitch in this litter.”
  • Zomkabobs on a schtick!
  • Great Catch Zombie
  • Explosive Zombie
  • Still smoking…
  • Ghost Rider Zombie (aka Bic Zombie)
  • Mailman Zombie
  • Spiteful Zombie
  • Zombie Jim
  • Zombie Duel

Not my favorite of all the movies but not as horrible as I thought it would be.  I give it a C+.
