Horror of horrors (and seeing as this is a horror blog I do mean horrors)!! The Rich-Dimick Horror Project had to postpone their 12/15/09 viewing of Scanners due to infection!
Part of the reason Nick and Chris live in U.S. cities so far from each other is so they can have advance warning should the Zombie Apocalypse break out in their prospective regions. Anyone with a lick o' sense will see the logic in this - should an Asian or Central/South America outbreak occur it would quickly migrate to San Diego (where Nick is ever vigil) and if there is ever a European or African outbreak, Chicago, hub of international travel that it is, will most certainly attract oodles of illness (where Chris stands steadfast)!
That being said, I feel compelled to warn everyone that there is a potential outbreak in Chicago! Yes dear readers, as you gaze upon these words The Rich-Dimick Horror Project's very own Chris Dimick is battling off a bitter infection! Little is known at this point as to the infection's origin... but Chris's penchant for eating pigs that solely feed on other pigs makes one wonder if it is the dreaded swi-er, H1N1! (I almost forgot we can't call it swine flu anymore!)
In honor of the harrowing battle Chris is presently engaging in, I have decided to share my
Top 5 Zombie Apocalypse (ZA) Films:
#5. The Omega Man: Charlton Heston teaches us that all one needs to survive the ZA is inept afro'd ghouls, a sassy sista who rules at freeze tag and the ability to be shirtless a much as possible!
#4. Sean of The Dead: If Simon Pegg has shown us anything in this film (besides what NOT to do in a relationship) it's that friendship is forever... even when it begins to stink.
#3. 28 Days Later: Before Danny Boyle went all Bollywood on us, he was making useful films that illustrate how extremist hippies will end civilization as we know it.
#2. Dawn of The Dead (2004): I never tire of watching Zack Snyder's more brawn, less braaaaiinnsss remake - this film solidified that yes, zombies can be fast!
#1. Dawn of The Dead (1978): George A. Romero's masterpiece makes me long for the day the ZA begins! No other film can make you want to live in a dismal, depressing zombie-infested-oh-I-just-had-to-shoot-my-best-friend-in-the-head-world quite like this one... if you haven't seen it, watch it. Now.
Take my advice and add these movies to your Netflix queues before it's too late... because who knows? Chris could be rising from the dead and feasting on his lovely bride as we speak! ZA notwithstanding the RDHP will be back on track next week. Till then: courage.
