*TEARS HAIR OUT*

Okay, I owe comments, feedback, I have a garden picspam coming, and I need to get my walk in before I put it off for the day, but I just read a review in the paper for 28 Days Later's sequel in which they refer to the biters/ragers/evil as zombies, and listen to me:

THEY ARE NOT ZOMBIES.

I loved that movie (Cillian peen in the beginning, what? Oh, and the movie was very frightening and awesome looking and you know, RAGE VIRUS) but ZOMBIES are the dead that have come BACK, REANIMATED. The evil in those movies AREN'T DEAD YET. (Maybe they are in the sequel, but they WERE NOT in the original.)

This random rant brought to you by Head Desk, Inc. "Have you pounded your head today?"

That was my big probelm with 28 days Later. They made it seem like it was going to be a zombie movie, they promoted it like a blasted zombie movie and I was all *squee* because zombie movies are my favorite type of horror movie.

Then I watched it was all WTF? Where's the zombies???

I felt cheated.

Actually, I still feel cheated.

But... there is a horrifyingly bad-looking zombie movie coming out that might make up for it.

What's better than Snakes on Motherf*cking Plane? Zombies on a Plane! Seriously. Trailer for Flight of the Living Dead. It was originally called Plane Dead. hahaha *snort*

Plus Fido looks good.

I think Shaun of the Dead was the best zombie movie in the past few years, hands down. (Which reminds me that I've got to sneak out soon and see Hot Fuzz...)

I LOVE the title Plane Dead, hahaha! Oooh, I don't know about Fido, so thanks for the head's up! \o/

I think zombies all over the world should unite and complain. They have an image to uphold.

I think where people get confused is the Zombie-ish attributes, like speed and intelligence-- wait, no.

28 Days Later scares the poopy out of me, as do zombies, but 28 Days Later is a disease flick. The creators think of it as a disease flick, and some suit at the production company decided people would, "get" zombies.

I am truely concerned about this sequel... none of the same actors, writers, or directors. That smells like trouble to me.

Man, that movie scared the CRAP out of me. (And honestly, when the "military" showed up, that's when it REALLY got scary for me.)

I'm hearing really good things about the sequel, to be honest. Hmmm. I'm waiting to hear from more trusted sources before I plunk down my nine bucks.

Zombies? But... I mean... They aren't... Zombies??

My anti-sequel flag is flapping in the breeze. I don't know, mayhap I'll wait til it's showing at the discount theatre.

So they were Reavers? asks the woman who is too scared of scary movies to ever watch any.

Really? Oh, I looooove to be terrified! So, here's the summary:

In an animal testing facility, some chimps (being rescued by some PeTa types) break out and infect people with a "rage" virus. It takes 20 seconds to activate, if a person gets even a single drop of infected blood on them. (In a cut, wound, eye, mucus membrane) and the person wants meat. As in: human flesh. So, they're not zombies, but they're no longer functioning humans, either.

Cillian Murphy wakes up in the hospital after a coma and no one's there. Those shots of Britain are AMAZING. Except... he's not alone, BUM BUM BUM!!

It's TERRIFYING.

Yeah, that already sounds like a movie not for me. Good, but not for me. If it was on, I'd probably watch it because of those shots of Britain and then regret it. :)

Okay, I don't usually go in for Scary Movies, but JESUSFUCK 28 DAYS LATER WAS AWESOME. And I've heard 28 Weeks Later is getting some awesome reviews. *CANNOT. WAIT. FOR DAY OFF.*

Also yes. chuh. They're not zombies. This ain't Thriller.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
