Z is for Zombies

Posted by Dawn Dalton on 9:22 AM

Last year, I attempted the A to Z Blogging Challenge with young adult books starting with the appropriate letter of the alphabet. I was going to follow that same theme, but I knew so many of them would be the same and this year, I've been trying my hand at script writing - with fairly good success. So, I decided to base this year's theme on either movies I loved as a kid - or movies made for kids. Join me on a Hollywood adventure?

I can't believe it's the final day of the A to Z Challenge. As much as I've enjoyed reading everyone's blogs, and challenging my own blogging stamina, I'm exhausted. I started off doing four blogs on the A to Z - and I'm down to three. In case you want to take a look, I blogged here, at the "other me" website and in character as Chase Duffy here.

I suspect there will be a plethora of Zombie posts today - and certainly, all three of mine have some form of zombie connection. But what better movie for "Z" than Zombieland?

Zombieland is just plain good horror comedy fun. You've got zombies, an amusement park...and Woody Harrelson. Hello? Awesomeness.

I love a good scary movie, and one might expect this one to cause a few "jumpy" moments - yes, but overall, Zombieland is just a fun ride.

I'm also intrigued by the Zombieland TV show pilot that's floating around cyberspace right now. Same writers...different cast. If it doesn't try too hard to be The Walking Dead, it might have a chance at survival in a saturated paranormal market. That wasn't a complaint, by the way. I loves that stuff.

How are you finishing off the A to Z Challenge? Are there zombies involved?

No, but there is the ghost of an astrologer past! :-)

I LOVED Zombieland. BUT, we previewed series and made it through 2.5 minutes. Yup. That bad. We're kinda sad about it, but hey, we've still got The Walking Dead, eh?
