Zombie Blogfest!

Posted on

Today is Halloween and I’m participating in the Zombie Blogfest hosted by Kelly Hashway and Beth Fred.

Here’s how it works:
Post about your favorite zombie movie, zombie book, zombie TV series, or share some cool zombie pics. As long as it’s zombies, you’re good.

What’s in it for you?

How about a FREE story. Plus, US residents can also be entered for a chance to win some zombie limb candy and a signed copy of Touch of Death. (Sorry but international mailing is expensive and mailing candy internationally isn’t always allowed.)

Everyone will get a copy of Kelly Hashway’s FREE short story prequel to the Touch of Death series, Curse of Death.

In fact, go grab it now by clicking here.
And if you want a chance to win a signed copy of Touch of Death and some zombie candy to satisfy your after Halloween sugar craving, simply fill out the rafflecopter form below.
Okie dokie. Well, when it comes to all things zombies my favorite movie is 28 Days Later.
28-DAYS-LATER

 

For anybody who hasn’t seen it here’s the logline: Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.

And a brief recap of the beginning (courtesy of Wikepedia):

Cameras in the opening scenes show footage of extremely violent riots taking place in central London. A chimpanzee is then shown surrounded by the cameras and chained to a table. Shortly afterwards, British animal liberation activists break into a laboratory in Cambridge. While trying to free some chimpanzees being used for medical research, they are interrupted by a scientist (David Schneider). Despite his desperate warnings that the chimps are infected with a virus dubbed “Rage”, which he claims is highly contagious and only takes one bite to spread, the activists ignore him and open the cages anyway and release the chimpanzees. A chimp attacks an activist and immediately infects her, and she in turn infects the other members of the group, including the chief scientist when he attempts to kill her.

28 days later, a bicycle courier named Jim (Cillian Murphy) awakens from a coma in St Thomas’ Hospital in London. He finds the hospital deserted and seemingly empty. He ventures out to discover the city completely deserted with signs of catastrophe everywhere. Jim then wanders into a seemingly abandoned church, only to alert a small group of Rage-Infected people who were hiding there. As he tries to approach a priest who he then realises has also been Infected, the “Infected” spot him and try to attack him, giving chase.

 

Dude. The beginning of this movie FREAKED ME OUT. I couldn’t breathe. If it’s on TNT or something I’ll even watch the edited version. The film was successful both commercially and critically and there’s a sequel (I haven’t seen it) called 28 Weeks Later.

So if you haven’t seen the movie, watch it this Halloween and see Cillian Murphy and Naomie Harris kick some major Zombie butt.

What about others? Any fave Zombie flicks? And don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win some zombie limb candy and a signed copy of Touch of Death!

  1. I tried watching 28 Days Later once, but for some reason I couldn’t get into it. I will definitely give it another try though. My brother has both movies, so I’ll just have to borrow them sometime. 😉
