The best zombie movies are metaphors for the horrors of the human condition, be it blind consumerism (Romero's Dawn of the Dead) or existential crisis in the face of a Godless universe (Kotcheff's Weekend at Bernie's). They're really more my thing than Jamie's, but I was too lazy to give him the visual references he asked for. Which is a shame, because I would have looked great in a blue shirt with a chainsaw for a hand.
Also, I totally should have titled this strip 28 Days Later...
If you're looking for movie ideas for Wednesday, Robert Berry at retroCRUSH has updated his much quoted/plagiarized list of the 100 Scariest Movie Scenes Of All Time and the shower scene from Psycho is no longer #1. While An Inconvenient Truth and Supersize Me are still inexplicably absent, #78 definitely freaked me out. I used to hide under my covers, absolutely sure that creepy old woman was clinging to the ceiling above my bed.
Happy Halloween, everybody.
