Easter Weekend Special “Resurrection” REPOST: “You Are Who You Eat” – An Incomplete Guide to Zombie Movies

The gut-munching, brain-eating, chunk-blowing best.

The gut-munching, brain-eating, chunk-blowing best.

Shortly after my family bought its first VCR, Mom and Dad bought a bag full of public domain VHS movies from K-Mart. Among the poorly transfered cartoons, and “classic” comedies was Night of the Living Dead. Within days I pulled it from the stack and popped it in. Needless to say, I was never the same. It was the start of something big, and shortly after, I watched Return of the Living Dead at a sleep-over birthday party. That sealed the deal: I was now a zombie fan. Here’s an incomplete list to help you navigate the vast sea of the living dead. Post your favorites in the comments.
