Okay guys, I have heard some debate on whether or not this flick is considered a zombie movie.
The Throwback Thursday Zombie Flick Pick is…
So in Haitian folklore, a zombie was said to be a person who was enslaved and basically trained to do whatever their “master” wanted them to. They weren’t necessarily dead people, but people who just didn’t think for themselves anymore.
Which is basically how the zombies are portrayed in this movie…sort of. The people of this small town are infected by a virus, turning them into cold-blooded killers. They are no longer thinking in the right state of mind.
This 2010 movie was a remake of the 1973 film of the same name. And of course, a George Romero classic.
I enjoyed the film quite a bit. The concept was interesting and something different in terms of zombieism. Not to mention, it’s subtle comedy was refreshing and actor Timothy Olyphant is one of my faves.
Would you consider this a zombie flick pick?
