CLIP DESCRIPTION:Drew (Carmen Electra) bungles her way into the hands of death… but not before she shows off her killer bod.

FILM DESCRIPTION:After parodying the blaxploitation films of the 1970s in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka, Keenen Ivory Wayans takes aim at slasher films of the 1980s and 1990s in this raunchy satire, which was produced under the clumsy but inarguably appropriate title Scream If You Know What I Did Last Halloween. As you might expect, a group of teenagers — not-terribly-bright Buffy (Shannon Elizabeth), her best friend Brenda (Regina Hall), stoner Shorty (Marlon Wayans), fey football player Ray (Shawn Wayans), loudmouthed Greg (Lochlyn Munro), sexually overexcited Bobby (Jon Abrahams), and his prim girlfriend Cindy (Anna Faris) — are on the run from a maniacal killer who is looking for revenge after the kids accidentally kill a man following an auto accident. They also find themselves having to contend with intrusive reporter Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri) and eccentric high school principal Squiggly (David L. Lander). Incidentally, the title Scary Movie is something of an inside joke: it was the working title for Scream, the movie that kick-started the mid-’90s slasher film revival.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9, Episode 7 Review: ‘Stradivarius’

Spoilers through Season 9 of ‘The Walking Dead’ follow.

Sunday night’s episode ofThe Walking Deadwas yet another good episode of AMC’s zombie drama. That’s seven episodes in a row that have received my stamp of approval. I’m not sure the show has ever been this competent. Seven good episodes in a row? And only in the season premiere did we see anything like characters acting like idiots for no good reason.

The rest of the season has been surprisingly good, and the two episodes we’ve seen after the time jump have both been really strong, giving me faith thatThe Walking Deadcan survive in a post-Rick, post-Maggie timeline. In fact, I don’t really miss Rick or Maggie at this point. I like Jesus as the apathetic leader of Hilltop. I like the ruling council of Alexandria.

Really, the only thing I don’t like aboutThe Walking Deadright now is Michonne. And while that’s a pretty big problem, it’s something that I hope we’ll see resolved by the midseason finale.

In Stradivarius, we pick back up after last week’s insane cliffhanger. Rosita is stumbling through the forest, bloodied up, no sign of Eugene. Her pursuers are coming. The creepy factor here is through the roof, somethingThe Walking Deadhasn’t pulled off in ages. This is supposed to be a scary show, but it hasn’t been in quite a while. Now we have real terror again, if only for a moment at the beginning of the episode. The rest of the episode builds toward next week.

We have a few different storylines going on in ‘Stradivarius.’ As is the case with the rest of this season, the show’s writers and producers have done a bang-up job weaving all the different characters’ stories together across each episode (for the most part.) In the past,The Walking Deadhas had an annoying habit of either giving us just one or two characters per episode, or telling just one group’s story per episode, leaving major characters like Carol out of the show for five or six episodes at a time.

Not so in Season 9. Each episode covers most of the characters. Sure, we didn’t get Hilltop last week, but we do this week and we see that Jesus has become its reluctant leader, with Tara his lieutenant, pestering him to actually lead when all he really wants to do is have her job. He’s even meeting in secret with Aaron where they spar and try to keep open lines of communication between the two communities.

Jesus and the Hilltop

It appears that after Rick’s death, Michonne blamed Maggie and the bad blood between the two led to the splintering of the various communities. Alexandria has closed itself off to the rest of the world, and Michonne herself won’t even go all the way to Hilltop for fear of running into Maggie. It’s Siddiq who reveals to her that Maggie has left the community with Georgie. Somehow Michonne didn’t know.

In any case, for a minute I thought that perhaps Aaron and Jesus had formed a romantic relationship but that doesn’t appear to be the case (or at least not yet, though it would make sense.) I like both their characters a lot more this season. I was, frankly, enormously critical of both actors over the past couple seasons but I think they were just given bad writing and poor direction to work with. Both are far more likable this season. That applies to almost everyone (except Michonne.)

While Aaron and Jesus are talking, they see a flare go off nearby and race off to find Rosita leaning against a tree in bad shape. They take her back to Hilltop. The whole time I’m worried that they’re about to be ambushed. I’m actually tense and afraid for these characters again. Remarkably,The Walking Deadis evoking real emotions in me other than annoyance and eye-rolling. That’s a good thing!

Michonne and the newbies

Meanwhile, Michonne, DJ and Siddiq are escorting the newcomers from Alexandria to Hilltop, because Michonne is too stubborn to let them stay in her community but too compassionate to hang them out to dry. She still won’t let them have their weapons (until they need them) and she won’t accompany them the whole way to Hilltop (until she learns about Rosita.)

They go to where Magna, Luke and the others had last had camp and find it completely destroyed. They find their weapons there (which Michonne confiscates) and Luke finds his priceless violin, an original Stradivarius from the 18th century. Later that night, Michonne finds him looking at his violin and assumes it’s a weapon. When he doesn’t drop it she slashes it in half with her sword. It’s an accident, but one based on Michonne being an insufferable jerk now.

Everyone sits around talking after this completely avoidable travesty, and Luke (who I really love as a character) talks about how the humans “defeated” the neandertals. He talks about how just sitting around playing music, sharing stories and art, is such a powerful thing. How it’s so essential to rebuilding society. It’s a great monologue. You can almost see it piercing through Michonne’s icy defenses. Almost.

Later, the group is taken by surprise by the herd of walkers that killed Bernie, the newcomers’ lost companion. It appears to be a real herd, but I wonder if there are Whisperers there. After they make their escape, at one point the group stops. The deaf woman, Connie, notices something in the trees. Everyone stops, watching, listening. They see nothing and move on, but we see the camera looking back from the woods. Someone is out there, and they’re not friendly.

Legolas and Luke Skywalker

In the third major storyline of the evening, Carol (aka Legolas) takes Rey (aka Henry) to see Luke Skywalker (aka Daryl) in his self-imposed exile. Daryl now has a pet dog named Dog, which is awesome.

Carol wants Daryl to come back to Hilltop where he can keep an eye on Henry, though I suspect she also hopes Daryl will take Henry under his wing to some degree. It’s all well and good to train as a blacksmith, but Daryl could teach Henry how to survive. How to fight and how to think in the apocalypse.

At first, Daryl isn’t interested. He enjoys his isolation. It turns out that he started going out to look for Rick after the bridge blew. He never found a body, so he has no reason to believe that Rick is actually dead. The sad thing is, Daryl is right but everyone thinks he’s crazy. After a while, he just stopped going back to town.

This whole sequence was quite good except for when Carol asks if he’s eaten lately and he replies, petulantly, that the dog ate yesterday. I get it—Daryl is bitter. He’s bitter about Rick. I think he’s a little jealous of Carol marrying Ezekiel. But still, you don’t answer that question with that answer, no matter how bitter you are.

That night, Dog is snared in one of Daryl’s traps. Zombies, also snared, are trying to get to the poor creature. Daryl goes to save him and tells Henry to stay back. Henry doesn’t listen (of course) and intervenes in time to save Daryl from a straggler. At first Daryl is angry, but later he thanks Henry and the two talk. Henry doesn’t want Carol to know about the incident, but she was watching—bow at the ready—the entire time (like a good wood elf.)

Henry tells Daryl that he’s Carol’s best friend and that she misses him. Daryl asks if Henry really wants him at Hilltop always watching over his shoulder, and Henry replies “It isn’t just about me.” So Daryl melts and agrees to go back to Hilltop.

They head that way and reach the town before Michonne and her group. Everyone is converging on Hilltop as we approach the midseason finale. Jesus, Aaron and Daryl head out to look for Eugene. Rosita is in sickbay. Michonne and her crew are heading there and surely Michonne and others will go out to help with the search for Eugene.

And the Whisperers are coming. I get the feeling next Sunday’s episode is going to be insane. Some characters are almost certainly going to die. Something very, very bad and frightening is about to happen. I’m not sure who is marked for death just yet, but I think next week is going to be big. Eugene seems to be in the most peril, but he’s got a special kind of luck and never seems to die no matter how useless he is.

I’m also really curious about these X scars on Michonne and Daryl’s backs. What do they signify? Do other characters have them as well? Perhaps it’s some blood pact, some commitment to finding Rick, or to the original group—though given the apparent bad blood between Maggie and Michonne, I’m not sure about that. I guess we’ll find out soon.1

What do you think about these mysteries and about this episode more broadly? Let me know on Twitter and Facebook, and thanks so much for reading!

Vampires

When my Dad was trying to wise me up to the ways of the world, he told me that the race of vampires were ancient. He said they’d been on Earth before humans, and that when the Ice Age began, they hibernated underground until it was over.

Marceline in her scrapbook.

Vampires, also referred as the Nosferatu, are a near-extinct species in Adventure Time. Their self-proclaimed queen is Marceline.

Their history is not well known. Unlike traditional vampires, it appears vampires in the Adventure Time universe are not limited to surviving exclusively on blood, but are capable of sustaining themselves on “shades of red,” such as the color in strawberries. However, Marceline is the only vampire who has been shown willing to live this way.

Following the aftermath of the Mushroom War, there was a surge of vampires and they began stalking the remaining humans. A young half-demon named Marceline took it upon herself to protect the last of the human race and inevitably hunted the vampire race into near-extinction. However, when she tried to fight the Vampire King himself, she was bitten. Although she eventually managed to slay him, she was turned in the process.[2]

Having grown tired of being a vampire, Marceline allowed her friend Bonnibel Bubblegum to extract Marcelines vampiric essence, in an attempt to make Marceline mortal once again. Unfortunately, this leads to the reemergence of five of Marcelines most powerful vampiric foes: the Fool, the Empress, the Hierophant, the Moon, and the Vampire King himself. The reappearance of these vampires forces Marceline, Bubblegum, Finn, Jake, and Peppermint Butler to stake them one-by-one (although the Vampire King is neutralized through a scientific process that removes the vampiric essence from his body); in the ensuing action, Marceline is once again turned into a vampire, but comes to terms with her immortal fate.

As mentioned by the Empress, the vampire hierarchy system revolves around a hive that consists of lesser vampires referred to as “minions,” under the command of a master vampire, such as the Empress herself and other members of the Vampire King’s court. All the vampires are ruled by the Vampire King until he and most if not all his kind are wiped out by Marceline, who herself was bitten by the king and as the result she herself became the last surviving vampire, claiming the title of “Vampire Queen”.

Marceline feeding.

10 Great Zombie Movies Youve Probably Never Seen Taste …

6. The Cured

The Cured might be the most unique zombie movie on this list. Theres a lot of competition, so it would be unfair to give it this honor so easily. Still, the setup is positively brilliant in a why didnt I think of that sort of way. Basically, this is a movie about ex-zombies who are cured from the virus. Unfortunately, theres a catch associated with that cure they all remember the horrible things they had done as zombies.

Once again, were getting a zombie movie that relies a lot on human nature and the drama that comes with exploring this type of thing. There are some spooky moments here and there, but theres also a decent amount of thought-provoking material that goes beyond the basic zombie setup. At times, the more clever take on the genre doesnt live up to its promise, but its still a rewarding movie watching experience worth of everyones time.

7. Doghouse

There has been a lot of talk about movies that stand out because theyre different. Doghouse isnt necessarily a standard zombie movie due to the setup and overwhelming amount of comedy, but it features all the tropes one would come to expect.

It remains watchable though because its funny, action-packed, and brimming with zombie fan service. Sure, it essentially picks cliches out of a hat, but in doing so, it provides viewers with an entertaining experience thats more fun than intelligent.

In other words, this is a good movie for those who are getting sick of the artsier recommendations. Lets be real, most of the artsy zombie movies are included because they dont fit in with the mainstream. The less daring zombie movies usually get bigger theatrical releases because people want to watch zombies get blown to bits.

Doghouse didnt get the same kind of giant release because its a lower budget movie with no real star power associated with it. Regardless, its an entertaining experience because it provides mindless violence and much needed comedy.

8. The Night Eats the World

To say that The Night Eats the World is a slow-burn may be an understatement. If Doghouse is for people who want some trashy fun, The Night Eats the World is for people who want the exact opposite. It revolves around a man who tries not to lose his sanity in a world where he believes himself to be the only living human.

Almost all of the movie takes place in one location, and that location is mostly free of zombies. Theres the occasional zombie break-in, but the movie mostly focuses on how lonely life would be as a survivor during this kind of apocalypse. Some zombie movies want to provide viewers with thrilling action. This one wants to leave people ruminating.

Luckily, it mostly succeeds. Despite the lack of dialogue or action, theres a lot of thought-provoking stuff here. The biggest issue is that the snail-like pacing can be offputting for even the most patient viewers. Just be aware that its worth it to be patient. There are scenes that seem to go on for an eternity, but they almost always lead somewhere. Its a good idea to suck it up and enjoy what the movie has to offer.

9. Life After Beth

While zombie rom-com isnt exactly a common movie genre, it certainly wasnt invented by the folks who brought us Life After Beth. We saw it before with Warm Bodies and we saw it after with Santa Clarita Diet.

Basically, unlike a lot of movies on this list, Life After Beth isnt winning points for originality. Its more original than something like Dawn of the Dead, but the comedic zombie movie has been done before, and its been done better. That being said, this is a movie that has a leg up on the competition just because its really funny.

Its not as smart or romantic as Warm Bodies, but it might offer up more consistent laughs. Aubrey Plaza, like always, brings something special to the table. Even if the movie isnt particularly special, Plazas charismatic presence feels absolutely necessary.

The jokes dont even have to be funny for them to work because theres an actress at the top of her game in front of the camera. A lot of the jokes are funny, but some of them just seem to land because of the actress saying the lines. Obviously, theres more to the movie than just her, but shes perhaps the main draw here.

10. The Plague of the Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies tries to pretend its the quintessential period zombie movie like this little gem doesnt exist. Meet The Plague of the Zombies, a 1966 zombie movie about a literal plague that takes place in the 1800s.

Beyond just having a gorgeous art direction and surprisingly strong performances, this movie is genuinely effective as a zombie movie because its tame in the best possible way. As if readers havent gotten the hint already, the movies on this list are, for the most part, quieter than bid budget counterparts. Thats why theyre underseen, but thats also why theyre special.

Like several previously mentioned movies, this movie is a slow-burn chiller. It can get away with this kind of pacing because of the strong characters and impressive scenery.Sure, the dialogue often feels stale, but thats a small price to pay for a movie that really is better than it has any right to be.

Compared to several other movies from this time period, The Plague of the Zombies has aged like fine wine. Ignore the flaws and have fun with one of the 60s most underappreciated horror movies.

Maggie’s Exit From ‘The Walking Dead’ Is Weird, Much …

Last night on The Walking Dead, the mystery of who is currently running the Hilltop six years into the future was solved. It was not Alicia Clarke, which conspiracy theorists believed, but instead it’s Jesus, who doesn’t want the job and pretty much makes Tara do all the work, which I find hilarious.

It was another good episode, the stuff between Daryl and Carol was particularly great (a haircut! but not enough of one…), though one aspect of the episode bothered me.

That was the revelation that Maggie had already left the Hilltop to go help out other communities with Georgie.

I knew that this was coming, because Lauren Cohan made it clear that Rick’s last episode was actually also her last episode of the season, though probably not forever, given that there seems to be some sort of plan to have her return in the future when Georgie circles back around or her new community needs help or something.

And yet, this was an extremely weird departure for her character, and much weirder than the epic send-off Rick was given on his last episode, which was also hers for a while. Rick too is returning to TWD, but with a movie trilogy, but even if Maggie is returning to the show itself in the future, possibly temporarily, possibly full-time depending on the success of her ABC show, I still think she needed a better temporary send-off than this.

It is…extremely strange to simply have Maggie vanish from the show after not only being there since season 2, but also being a key leader of a community that is supposed to be a central figure in the current storyline. Before this, Maggie was becoming something of an autocrat on the Hilltop, executing Gregory and butting heads with Rick. And in the time since, it’s heavily implied that her and Michonne have had some sort of falling out, even though the last we saw of them, they seemed fine, as Michonne respected Maggie’s decision not to kill Negan, even though she was allowing it, and then presumably they mourned Rick together.

What happened to all that? Who knows? Maggie is just gone. Obviously the “best” thing would be for her to just…not leave, but if it did have to happen, just writing her out of the story during a time jump seems bizarre. I know that we got the hint about her potentially joining up with Georgie in previous episodes, but it feels like we needed to see her actually make that decision, to leave with Georgie and take Herschel with her. To explain why she was doing it and what her plans and goals were. To just…have her gone after seven years on the show feels weird, even if she does show up again some time next season. I’m not saying that we needed some grand finale episode like we had with Rick, but something besides just…a total void where Maggie should be. Again, I like the new Jesus/Tara stuff, but it was just weird to have Maggie vanish like she’s Heath or something.

Now, we may eventually get some flashbacks to points in time over the past six years we missed, and it’s possible Maggie could appear in those. Both Daryl and Michonne have shown off X-shaped scars that they clearly received during some sort of calamity no one is talking about, and I do wonder if Maggie was involved in whatever happened back then that made Michonne A) dislike her and separate from Hilltop contact B) not trust newcomers. But that’s a bunch of theorizing for another day. I guess the point is maybe we do someday see the exact moment Maggie left, if we do end up getting flashbacks.

The Walking Dead has done nearly everything right this season, including extremely difficult stuff like Rick’s send-off. And yet I can’t pretend like Maggie flying the coop in the night didn’t feel very weird, and I wish it had been handled a bit differently. I guess my consolation is knowing that she’s definitely not gone for good, but still, the way this was handled was very odd, and I didn’t especially care for it.

The Walking Dead (Video Game)

For the other video games in The Walking Dead universe, see Video Game.Cover Gallery

The Walking Dead, also known as The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series and The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series, is an episodic video game series that takes place within Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic series’ universe.

The video game series was developed and published by Telltale Games, associated with Skybound Entertainment.

Telltale debuted the series with the release of Episode 1 of Season 1 at the beginning in spring of 2012.[1] The first episode of the adventure game debuted on April 24, 2012, for PC, Mac, and the PlayStation Network, on April 27, for Xbox Live Arcade, and on July 26th, for the iOS.

Due to the late release of the game for iOS, episode 2 became available for download on August 29th. The entire first season, (along with the “400 Days” DLC), was released on August 20, 2013, for the PlayStation Vita.

Season 1 along with the 400 Days DLC later saw a release on Nintendo Switch on August 28, 2018.

Kirkman has said that, unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, it focuses more on characterization, character development, and emotion than action.

It is also the first game from Telltale to use the PlayStation Move. It is a point-and-click horror adventure, focusing on problem-solving rather than combat.[1]

Season 2 was confirmed to be planned by Telltale Games in July 2012. Later on, they pushed the release date towards Autumn 2013. The first episode of Season 2 was released on December 17th for PC/Mac via Steam and on PlayStation Network. It was released for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network Europe and iOS on December 18th. It was released for PlayStation Vita on April 22nd in North America and on April 23rd in Europe.

The ‘Game of the Year’ disc edition for Season 1 was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 14, 2014. A retail disc version of Season 2 was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 21, 2014 in North America and on October 31, 2014 in Europe.

Season 3 was confirmed on July 26, 2014 during Skybound’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. The first and second episodes were released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on December 20, 2016. [2][3]

On June 15, 2015 during E3, Telltale Games announced a new mini-series titled The Walking Dead: Michonne, which follows Michonne’s story during the events in the Comic Series. It was released as a stand-alone series on February 23, 2016. Telltale has announced that further information regarding Season 3 will be released following the completion of this series.

A new and updated version of the series titled The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, was released on December 5, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both in retail and digital releases, with PC/Mac, iOS, and Android releases coming in 2018 as well as on additional platforms in the future. The collection contains the first three seasons, including the 400 Days DLC and the three-part The Walking Dead: Michonne mini-series; all nineteen episodes are fully upgraded with visual enhancements.[4]

Season 4 was confirmed on July 2017 during San Diego Comic-Con 2017. This season is to be the conclusion of Clementine’s story. The first episode was released on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on August 14, 2018. Season 4 will also be the final game that Telltale will release, as the company announced studio closure in September 2018 following a massive layoff of its staff and the cancellation of most of their in-development titles. It was initially believed that after the second episode released, it was going to be the final episode released, and that the third and fourth episodes were cancelled, thus leaving Season 4 unfinished. However, on September 24, 2018, Telltale released a statement on social media saying “Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion”. While this got fans excited, most spoke that Telltale should seek ways into paying the developers of the game severance. On October 6, 2018, it was announced that Skybound Games, the gaming division of Skybound Entertainment, will be finishing the final two episodes of Season 4.

32 Best Zombie Movies of the 21st Century | Cultured Vultures

Zombie: A deceased human being who has partially returned to life due to undeterminable causes.

I dont know about you, but I have had about enough of our undead friends to last me a lifetime. Dont get me wrong, I am a huge fan of zombie movies. Its just that because of overexposure and a constant tweaking to the mythos to keep it fresh, I have become a little jaded. They dont make them like Romero used to, before he went all independent and deeply disappointing.

In the 1980s, the zombie onslaught was everywhere: on our televisions, adverts and music videos, which led to an eventual lack of interest from the public and a whole lot of meh. Once there were dancing zombies in Michael Jacksons Thriller, being scared by them ever again seemed liked a hard task.

Zombies almost completely disappeared from our media until 2004 when the both excellent Shaun of the Dead and Dawn of the Dead were released, with the latter doing a lot to introduce fast zombies to a new modern audience. Replacing shuffling, sometimes laughable slow zombies with sprinting lunatics did a lot to revitalise the perception of the undead as legitimate monsters once again.

However, fastforward ten years and the perception of zombies feels like its shifting again. An abundance of zombie-related media has meant that what exactly makes a reanimated cadaver is now more debatable than ever: some of them can talk, use tools, retain some of their humanity, not to mention their rules regarding what they can and cannot eat. Some of them arent even dead to begin with. Its a creative free-for-all.

Thats not to say that there hasnt been some truly innovative and original ways of showing brain-eating and marrow gnawing on our screens lately. It just so happens that for every Land of the Dead, we get fifty Volcano Zombies. With the surely imminent death knell of the modern zombie craze not too far away, I decided to take a look at some of the best zombie movies of the 21st century so far.

I was in two minds whether or not two include Warm Bodies on this list of the best zombie movies, purely because its so Disney-fied. Compared to other undead offerings, its incredibly tame and marketed towards a teenage audience its like a better version of Twilight but with zombies. Still, it has some great moments and Nicholas Hoults zombie friend is a standout. If youre looking for something to watch with a squeamish partner, Warm Bodies is a safe pick.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

World War Z is a movie that gets dramatically worse with every watch. At the cinema, I thought it was quite the ridiculous but fun spectacle. After watching it a few times since, how out of touch it is with its source combined with the troubled production coming through at some points sent it down in my estimations. Plus, that Pepsi scene was gross. Watch it once when youre drunk, maybe, and pray to God that Fincher steps in for the sequel.

Yeah, its dumb. You should kind of get that almost immediately from its name. But Bong of the Living Dead is still a lot of fun. A low-budget zombie movie, what Bong lacks in terms of technical quality, it makes up for it in terms of laughs and unexpected scares. When a group of stoners light one up and start discussing the zombie outbreak, exactly that happens. Dont go into it expecting the second coming of Romero and you will have a lot of fun.

WATCH: DVD | Rent

Here Alone starts off strongly with plenty of intrigue as a lone woman makes a simple living for herself in the woods. The tension is always bubbling and threatening to boil over in the post-apocalypse, leading to plenty of anticipation for the reveal of the zombies, who areterrible. As soon as their weak designs appear on-screen for the first time, the whole thing bottoms out. Its all downhill from that, featuring some terrible plot advancement and some very ropey sequences, but if you could bottle the first half an hour of Here Alone, you might have a small zombie movie gem on your hands.

WATCH: DVD | Rent

Is The Rezort a good movie? Not particularly. Does it do anything different to what weve seen a hundred times already? Well, its Jurassic Park with zombies. When you boil down its premise to just that succinct little tagline, its clear that this isnt a movie you should take too seriously. Sure, it looks cheap at the worst of times and some of the acting veers into melodrama, but as a zombie movie, its effective escapism that might take you by surprise.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

A popularly conflicting movie, Henry Hobsons Maggie is a fascinating look into the deterioration of a young girls humanity as she gradually becomes one of the undead. Her father, played spectacularly by Arnold Schwarzenegger, does everything in his power to keep her safe and away from the inevitable. Not one for action fans, Maggie is instead an introspective look at love and what it means to be human.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

This movie could have been so much better if it had stuck closer to the games it was based upon, that would have been a start. Despite dispatching of most of its cast in the feeblest way possible instead of making them undead chow, Resident Evil has a few good moments of zombie action. Shame the rest of its is such a bizarre hodge-podge of nu-metal music videos and slow-motion, then.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

Just before the found footage subgenre reached its peak, the late, great George A. Romero released his spin on things with Diary of the Dead, which, somehow took place in the same timeframe as Night of the Living Dead. Featuring plenty of memorable moments (Amish farmer, anyone? but a lack of consistent quality, Diary of the Dead is certainly watchable but nowhere near the top of Romeros zombie filmography.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

One of the zombie movies that is dumber than Harry and Lloyd rolling around in nuclear waste talking about creationism. Thats not necessarily a bad thing as Dance of the Dead doesnt make the mistake of taking itself seriously for even a second. A light-hearted effort centred around a zombie outbreak during a high school prom and you can fill in the blanks about what happens next.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

The Ford brothers 2010 African adventure is a movie that I staved off watching for the longest time. Its been polarisingly received by zombie movie fans, who might not have appreciated its slower tempo and more hesitant approach to a world filled with the undead. If you can deal with not having action sequences every five minutes, The Dead takes a leaf out of the Romero guidebook and it works wonders for it. The sequel aint so hot, though.

WATCH: BR | DVD | Rent

George A. Romeros long-awaited return to his classic zombie series might not rank as his best, but it still has a strong political undercurrent which sets it apart from similar fare. Americas War on Terror is a big inspiration for events here and contributes towards a smarter, more accessible effort than 1985s Day of the Dead that still ends up as an arguably inferior but great watch nonetheless.

Vampire Facts – Top 10 Facts about Vampires | Facts.net

Fast FactsEssential FactsInteresting Facts

Vampire facts tell us that although the first proper mentions of them in literature date to the 18th century, the first true Vampires actually date back to the ancient Babylonians and the year 4000 BC. They were called ekimmu and were believed to be a vengeful or evil spirit who had, upon death, not been buried properly, and thus escaped to torment and suck the life out of people who were still living.

So much so, that people actually took to digging up the bodies of dead people to kill them again, making sure they could not come back to haunt them. This actually led, in some countries, to laws and statutes being passed to prevent people bringing up bodies and causing them any more harm. However, in some places there were mass beheadings and hangings of people who were presumed or suspected to be Vampires.

Vampire Facts show that one of the most notable film Vampires was FW Murnaus epic silent film Nosferatu, made in 1922, though the first real film depiction was in the 1912 movie The Secrets of House Number 5. Still to this day, the most memorable portrayal of Dracula was by the actor Bela Lugosi, and this, for many, is the defining characterization and the most recognizable image of him.

Most notably feeding on the flesh of the living. It was therefore not uncommon for suspected female vampires to be buried with a rock or brick in their mouth to prevent them from coming back to life and eating the flesh of the dead. It was commonly believed during the time of the plague in the 17th century that Vampires would do this, so during this time the practice became even more common.

Well, that is if you do believe they exist, of course. Garlic is rich in a compound called Allicin, which is a known and proven antibiotic, known to repel many different types of germs and viruses. Vampire facts indicate that in folklore, people believed garlic would protect them from Vampire attack. Brides would carry it under their wedding dresses to keep them safe, and sailors believed it would protect them from shipwreck and Vampire attack when they were sailing.

The first notable mention of the word Vampire came in the 18th century in a book called Travels of Three English Gentlemen, though to this day, nobody knows who authored the book. However, the term dates back much further than that, possibly to the 17th century Slavic countries, and is believed to be roughly translated from an ancient word meaning witch.

A Dolmen is an ancient stone monument which has been found placed over the graves of many suspected Vampires, particularly in areas in and around Northern Europe. Archaeologists believed they were installed over the graves to stop the evil spirits rising from the body once the Vampire was dead. These monuments looked like stone tables and were often incredibly heavy.

Well, allegedly anyway! It is believed that Prince Charles is distantly related to Count Dracula otherwise known as Vlad of Walachia (and you might even be more familiar with his other name Vlad the Impaler), an evil 15th century ruler known for his brutal treatment of people, often skinning them alive. His own name means Son of Dracula and he was murdered in 1476, though his tomb has been located and since found to be totally empty. To this day, nobody knows where his mortal remains lie. The Prince has also admitted this himself too, jokingly confessing that he thinks he might have a stake in Romania. Genealogists of note have admitted he might well be right, too.

Vampire facts suggest that it was commonly believed the only way to rid yourself of a suspected vampire attack was to actually eat or drink the remains of a Vampire. This was done in one of two ways: by turning the ashes of a Vampire into a hot drink to imbibe, or to bake the blood of a dead Vampire into a loaf of bread and eat it. This might not catch on at Subway, though.

and believe it or not, it once again gives another link to the British Royal Family. A little-known condition called Porphyria (said to not only have affected King George III, but also latterly Princess Margaret) is something that many people who are believed to have been Vampires have suffered from. The illness causes excessive hair growth, intense sensitivity to sunlight and, in some patients, teeth may end up stained a reddish brown color.

Vampires have been said to have been in existence since ancient Babylonian times, though they were known as ekimmu rather than the name were commonly familiar with. The first mention of them in literature came in the 18th century, and the first film featuring a prominent Vampire character was released in 1912. The British Royal Family have Vampire connections. It is still believed the best way to protect yourself from a Vampire attack is to eat garlic.

Vampires The Official John Carpenter

Even now, on the eve of the 21st century, vampires rise from loamy graves in search of human prey. The blood they crave is the nectar of immortality, their thirst insatiable as needy fangs tear through the flesh of innocents. It is the rare man who would take up arms against them. Jack Crow (James Woods) is such a man. A skilled and cunning vampire slayer, he is the last crusader in a long-waged war, the leader of a contingent of mercenaries known as Team Crow.

Outside an abandoned farmhouse in rural New Mexico, Crow and partner Tony Montoya (Daniel Baldwin) survey the situation before moving in. Team Crow is on assignment for the Vatican to destroy a nest of vampires suspected to be inside. As they enter the darkness, the silence is broken by the high-pitched shrieks of a female vampire. The slayers flash their weapons in response. Wooden stakes and gleaming pikes pierce her body until she is dragged screaming into the light. More vampires appear, their struggles heroic, but not enough to endure. One by one, each is overpowered, reduced to ashes in the sun.

When all is quiet once again, Team Crow retreats to lick their wounds and celebrate a victory short-lived. They have neglected to kill the master of the nest, unleashing the savage fury of the infamous Valek, the first vampire in recorded history, the greatest master of all.

At the nearby Sungod Motel, the screams and shrieks heard now are the sounds of partying hookers, the finest prostitutes money can buy. They tantalize the macho warriors with swaying hips and breasts while the men drink in their luscious bodies. The night grows wild with wanton abandon until interrupted by the arrival of an uninvited guest, the legendary Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith).

Shock explodes across the room. The dark-robed stranger sinks his teeth into the flesh of Katrina (Sheryl Lee), a particularly beautiful prostitute, then turns his wrath on Team Crow. The massacre is quick and brutal. Only Crow and Montoya are left to bury their dead. They take Katrina hostage as a weapon against Valek, his bite initiating her psychic link to him as master. They will hunt him through her senses, see him through her eyes.

Valek now nears the end of a centuries-long search for the elusive Berziers Cross, the implement of ritual that can give him and all vampires succeeding him omnipotent power to walk in the daylight. His years of darkness have only left him more determined as has his battle with Crow. It is in their final confrontation that the fates will be decided.
