  • 5 Great Rom-Zom-Coms (That Aren’t Shaun Of The Dead)

    Read More

    Shaun Of The Dead was released a whopping twelve years ago, this year, and in its wake there have been many, lesser pretenders to the throne – hell, the flick coined its own sub-genre, the lovingly-titled rom-zom-com (shouldn’t it be zom-rom-com…?). It’s easy to see most of these post-Shaun offerings as cynical, instantly-forgettable money-grabs. And, even with twelve years of practice, it’s unlikely a film will come out that captures […]

10 Cloverfield Lane

We now have  a Super Bowl TV spot from 10 Cloverfield Lane to share with you. Like the original trailer, it doesn’t reveal a whole lot. We still don’t know if the film that J.J.

Five Unconventional Zombie Movies That Worked

Stalled film poster

Zombie movies have become kind of passé over the last ten years or so, thanks in large part to the popularity of shows like The Walking Dead, which aim to give the genre a kick up the ass by doing…absolutely nothing new with it. An endless stream of retreads hasn’t helped matters either–particularly when it comes to high-larious mash-ups such as Cockneys Vs. Zombies that always seem funnier on paper than […]
