Night of the ____a(u/w)n of the Dead...

Last night was cool. lostshady & markusmisery came over and we did a Shaun of the Dead & Dawn of the Dead double feature.

Ah, there was much wholesome zombie fun at ye olde Spooky Old Haus.

It was great getting to sit around geeking about horror movies (and movies and TV shows in general). That plus the fact that Shaun of the Dead was fucking awesome (first time any of us had seen it) and Dawn of the Dead (yes, the remake) made a hell of a lot more sense with all the footage they added (e.g. we now know how they got into the mall in the first place).

I had a great time and we discussed possibly doing some combination of Buffy/Angel nights and/or cheesy/not-so-cheesy movie nights (with a heavy dose of monster/horror movies).

It's something I've been thinking about dong for a while, so I'm seriously considering this.

As a random survey, are there any local folks who read this who'd be up for doing that once a week or once a couple of weeks (ish)?


Oh, BTW Shaun of the Dead

It's a great riff on the whole zombie thing and it really rewards those of us with an unhealthy fondness for zombie movies. It's a simple enough plot. Loser guy and his even bigger loser of a best friend try to save loser guy's mom and ex-girlfriend from the hordes of the undead that are running (well shambling) rampant in London. Hilarity ensues.

I highly recommend it. It's brilliant.
heh. i'm not such a huge zombie fan, but it sounds like it'd be worth digging up anyhow. i'll keep an eye out for it.
