Five Great Moments in the History of Zombie Cinema
ZOMBI 2 – Zombie fighting Shark!
It astounds me that I don’t see more zombies in watery environments! They don’t breath hence it is perfectly acceptable that they could function below the water’s surface! This scene from Lucio Fulci’s delightful gorefest Zombi 2 still stands out as one of the sub-genre’s most unique moments!
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD – Send more Paramedics!
There are numerous funny scenes with spectacular site gags in Return of the Living Dead, but this relatively simple scene has always stuck with me.
DEAD SNOW – Oh buddy! That has gotta hurt! HUGE SPOILER!!
This is a serious spoiler…but damn it makes me laugh! I recommend you DO NOT watch this clip if you are interested in seeing Dead Snow!
DEAD ALIVE – Lawnmower Scene!
Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive is over-the-top gory insanity! Even among zombie films there are few that provide as much blood and gore! It is all delivered in a very tongue in cheek sorta way. There are a half dozen scenes I could have chosen but the lawnmower scene is a real dazzler.
DAWN OF THE DEAD – Bikers meet their end!
This clip from Dawn of the Dead is filled with gore galore! This is why you never throw a pie in a zombie’s face no matter how funny you think it might be.
