The modern Zombie was basically born this small black and white film, that is totally public domain due Romero being shafted by the production studio, and accidentally shafting themselves.Well in the last 15/20 years we got a new twist on the Zombies with movies like:…
Seeing as it's Halloween weekend and that the Walking Dead is also premiering we thought it was the perfect time to devote an episode on Zombies. Yes as usual we go over our favourite and not so favourite Zombie films, examine the genres progression, yes slow vs fast Zombies, it isn't NQP without some tangents and not to mention your questions.
Feel free to join the group and listen to our past episodes…
This idea for a blog has been in my mind for a long while so I thought that I might as well write it now. There has always been a question in my mind and that is what makes great villains? Frankly, there are so many aspects that make the list of great film villains who they are so I thought that we should look at some villains who have been listed over the years as being some of the greats and see exactly what makes a great villain so great, evil, despicable, and yet entertaining and…
The UK zombie mini-series Dead Set, which originally aired on Channel 4 back in 2008, will finally see it's American television premiere on IFC starting October 25, at 11 p.m. central time. The week-long event will be concluded with a Halloween marathon beginning at 6:30 p.m. central time.
There's not much of a backstory to how I came to thinking about this. I just started thinking about what really can make a movie. And one thing that came up was an awesome death. Some films try to have an epic passing away, but only so many films have a death that is so memorable that it's an icon for years. But I'm not writing about the best deaths in cinema. These are just my own personal favorites. So don't say I forgot one, but feel free to share your own. And obviously there are huge… Continue
I finally got around to seeing the original Gojira, or Godzilla and I realize why it's become such an amazing pop culture icon. Not just because of the amazing monster, or the revolutionary effects, but because of how it was portrayed. The coolest monster in the worst movie could make it completely useless. But when you put a badass like Godzilla in a movie that heavy, it just works. So, out of my own… Continue
I'll be honest, I didn't see Sahara. In fact, be honest, neither did you...probably. But no matter, because Breck Eisner, director of the new film The Crazies and perhaps the world's best poster boy for nepotism, has stepped up to reveal his chops as a new talent.…
Breck Eisner talks about his re-imagining of George Romero's 1973 film, as well as going to high school with another well known director, Universal monster remake that didn't happen, and what big sci-fi flick he'll possibly work on next.… Continue
I like zombie films. In fact, I love zombie films, in particular I love the classic ‘Dead’ trilogy that came from the awesome mind of the Deadfather, George A. Romero. Hell, I even like 'Land of the Dead'. It’s a fun entry into the series. Sure, it’s not up to the greatness of those first three but it’s enjoyable none the less and it really only missed one trick and that is that it should have had Bob Hoskins in it. Then it would have been an awesome 'Super Mario Bros' reunion. Who wouldn’t… Continue

The plot involves inhabitants of an isolated island off the North American coast who find their relatives rising from the dead to eat their kin. The leaders of the island feud over whether or not to kill their reanimated relatives or preserve them in hopes of finding a… Continue
