December 16th, 2009–

When I think back over the last decade in regards to horror, it seems like a relatively barren landscape. However, when I sat down to prepare the list, I realized there has been some quite excellent work done in the past ten years. Granted, we have suffered through such irritating trends as the J-horror ghost flicks, the pathetic ‘torture porn’ genre, and the done-to-death supernatural thriller.

I’ve tried to limit the list to proper horror films—i.e. they try at some level to thrill or unnerve you—and have left off comedies like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland. In addition, I’m not a fan of the overly violent exploitative trash like Chaos or the Hostel films, so you won’t find any of those here (including stuff like Inside or Martyrs, which I was unfortunate enough to have seen). Like the last round-up for animation, we will start with five runners-up”, followed by slots 20-11.

ZOMBIELAND

September 23rd,2009–

Wow. Columbia Pictures has really ramped up the marketing on their new horror-comedy Zombieland. There doesn’t seem to be place on the internet where I can’t see that creepy zombie clown staring over at me. In addition, there have been numerous screenings for the movie and it doesn’t even release until Oct 2. This screening is actually the second screening in Baltimore. Check out the details.

On Wednesday September 23rd (tonight!) at 7:30 p.m., Towson Commons will be hosting a sneak screening of Zombieland. It’s a free screening but the only way in is either with a physical ticket or one printed from Facebook. And if you are hankering for some brains–or laughs–and you have a Facebook account, you can get access to a pair of tickets for tonight’s show. Continue reading

Let’s get one thing out of the way up-front: the zombies are starting to lose their luster.

Whether lurching, creeping, shambling, or sprinting, the living dead have more than worn out their welcome. Resuscitated by 28 Days Later, sustained by the Dawn remake and catapulted to stardom by Shaun, the genre has crawled from its grave and now runs amok eating the brains of indiscriminate horror fans everywhere. Fortunately, Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland is about to come along and joyfully hammer the last nail into this cinematic coffin. Continue reading
