ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Living Dead (2020)

The Living Dead is one of those blends that probably sounded really cool when it was pitched. We are going to take a group of thieves, have them attempt a heist in an Undead infested estate, and see if they can survive.

This isn’t your standard Zombie Movie. It is quirky and at times hard to follow exactly what the writers were going for.

Trust me when I say you can bypass this movie, and thank me for taking a bullet for you in the process. I’m giving The Living Dead an 18/100. It is slow, not a great blend of two genres, and the story and characters overall aren’t well done.

Shadow in the Cloud (2021)

Today was the last day of holiday for me and I wanted to get drunk and watch a movie, and generally be lazy all day. The alcohol was easy, the movie was a bit harder to find. After a few months of quarantine, there isn’t a whole lot of unwatched media out there, know what I mean?

So I was really excited when I saw this new movie, Shadow in the Cloud. Chloë Grace Moretz plays Maude Garrett, a woman trying to escape her past, any way she can. This ends up with Maude on a WW2 bomber, which just so happens to be the target of both Japanese fighters, and a gremlin.

The acting was top notch, Chloë Grace Moretz is an A Lister after all, but the overall story was fairly standard. This felt a lot like a really well done episode of the Twilight Zone. There was plenty of action, just not a whole lot of plot, but even so, it was really well done, so why a 66/100?

The main reason is the price. I paid $25 bucks for this, and that was just too much. At $10 bucks this would have been an 80/100 based on value for the buck. Even so, this is still Worth Your Time, even if its only by a single point. My honest feedback is to wait a few weeks until the price drops a bit though.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Dawn of the Dead (1978)

I was a little kid the first time I watched Dawn of the Dead. My older brother thought it would “toughen me up” as he puts it. Yes, he’s got that old school way of thinking when it comes to kids.

Back when I couldn’t really appreciate how well done Dawn of the Dead was, I was too busy trying not to scream. It really is the archetype of zombie movies, and everyone who works on zombie related media should be forced to watch this. Literally, forced to watch this. Hold their eyes open until they memorize the pattern.

The zombie apocalypse starts and rages through humanity. The group struggles to survive, and are smart about how they go about trying to live just a little bit longer.

Dawn of the Dead earned itself a 100/100 on so many levels. If you haven’t watched it recently, put it on your short list, you won’t regret it.

My one bit of advice is to just watch the old cut. I watched the old, some new, and some modified to make them 3D. In my opinion the gold old standard definition cut holds up the best. This movie isn’t about gimmicks or CGI, and the old school cut shows off the movie the best as far as I am concerned.

Zombie Movies – Ravenous (2017)

Ravenous takes place in small town Quebec, so the original movie is in French with English subtitles, but don’t let that keep you away. Ravenous has great character development and great action scenes, which isn’t always true of some zombie films.

The first half hour has some great scenes. One of them involves a the main characters fleeing through the woods as a horde runs after them through the trees, it was well shot and gave me the creeps.

I actually really liked the fact that they don’t try to explain the why its happening, the movie instead concentrates on what surviving takes, and how simple choices can mean life or death.

The ending is a bit strange, but came full circle, which I liked. Overall I’m giving Ravenous a 68/100. The movie is well worth watching if your a zombiephile.

Things to like about Ravenous:

  • Good character development.
  • Well done action and violence.
  • One of the most bad ass fighters is a woman.
  • Well acted and well written.

Zombie Movies – The Night Eats The World (2018)

The Night Eats The World gets off to a good start. A man goes to his ex girlfriends to pick up things she accidentally took when she moved out. When he gets to her new apartment there is a massive party going on, and instead of just giving him his things, she gets pulled into the revelry and he ends up falling asleep at the far end of a sprawling apartment.

When he wakes up he finds the apartment has been trashed, and the walls are covered in blood. He’s lucky though. The undead followed others out of the apartment and he was able to lock the door before any made it back inside.

The good start ends about there.

After he manages to secure his girlfriends apartment he works on clearing the other apartments.

The undead themselves are creepy and violent. There just isn’t enough of them. The movie is very much about the survivor’s ability to cope with being alone.

The Night Eats The World had huge potential but it fell a little short. With a little more action and a slightly different ending this could have been a great movie instead of just a good one.

At a 67/100 I’m going to say save it for a rainy day.

Bird Box (2018)

My brother turned us on to the Bird Box yesterday and my son, his girlfriend, my wife, my brother, and myself ended up spread out over my living room, hissing at whomever dared to open their mouth and distract everyone else from the movie.

Sandra Bullock plays a pregnant woman who is forced to survive as madness grips the world. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout, but still falls prey to some of the classic horror movie tropes. Be forewarned, if you keep reading, there are spoilers below.

I know that the group of survivors doesn’t really understand what is going on, but they know whatever it is, can kill you. So what do they do when they want to test Greg’s theory about using the security cameras? They tie him to a chair and leave him there.

What do they do with the car keys? They apparently left them where anyone could grab them.

What did they do when they let a newcomer into the group? They leave him along to work whatever mischief he wants.

Are they huge issues? Not really, the story moves fast and is edgy enough that you don’t notice, at least not until later. It is just one of those things that bothers me about survival movies. Don’t be stupid when people are dying all around you.

Is this a classic zombie movie? No. But whatever is possessing the people does cause them to turn violent and deadly. So this is a “zombie” movie of the possession type, very similar to Ghosts of Mars.

Do you ever get to see the monsters? Just through a madman’s drawings. Anyone who goes outside without a blindfolded gets taken over. It is a basic premise, but creates a massive amount of anxiety and suspense.

So what are the monsters possessing people? One of the frustrating things is that you never find out. Charlie goes on a rant very early in the movie, and it is pretty much the only time they address what is going on. The monsters appear as swirling bits of wind. The birds seem to be sensitive to their presence and give some early warning when they are close. Without much to go on I have to go with the little bit that Charlie gave us. It is the end of the world, and demons are cleansing the world. The things doing the possession were demons, and those who were truly bad in life were taken over completely.

It might sound corny, but it was really well done and the fact that they don’t spend a lot of time trying to explain it was actually good for the plot, if frustrating for those of us still digesting the movie a day later.

Overall, it was a good movie and kept us all on the edge of our seats and scores a solid 69/100. If you haven’t watched Bird Box yet, it is well worth watching.
