Free Zombie Movie Triple Header


Night of the Living Dead (B&W, 1968) approx. 1 hr. 39 min. - We start this bitch off with the King of Zombie Movies. The original classic directed by George A Romero that redefined the term "zombie" and provided a design for how they would be depicted in the following years to come. This is the one that started it all...

Severed (Color, 2005) approx 1 hr. 35 min. - Next up, we have a B-movie with an environmental message. A group of tree hugging hippies spike one of the trees so construction workers can't cut them down. When a construction worker tries, the chainsaw bounces back and cuts into him. The sap from the tree mixes with his blood and he becomes a zombie!!!! Moral of the story? Don't trust hippies. Save a tree, cut down a hippie instead. (For best results, apply chainsaw) Not as bad as people say, this was one of my favorite zombie movies to come out after Dawn of the Dead remake.

The Rage (Color, 2007) approx 1 hr. 25 min. - Last but not least, we have a prime example of why CGI fuckin PISSES ME OFF!!!!!!! I am an avid supporter of actual physical and tangible special effects. This movie started off with so much promise, some of the best blood and gore effects I've seen in any zombie movie in a long time. Then the garbage CGI zombie vultures are so laughably bad that it completely reverses any awesomeness built up by the opening zombie scenes. Still worth a look for the good parts.

  1. Resident Evil 3D was pretty decent, it helped going into the movie with low expectations. It was better than the 3rd one but probably not as good as the first 2 or the second one for you. You'll like this one more than the first one for sure. But for some reason it just didn't satisfy my zombie fix. There was actually very few zombie zombie scenes, mostly mutated creatures from the modern day RE games. You should check it out when you get the time.

  2. Hmm, from everything you just described to me... it sounds more like a rental than something I would pay to see in theaters. Not enough zombie scenes, doesn't beat the second installment, didn't mention anything about titties.... was the 3D worth paying ticket price to see?

  3. I would sneak in with my own pair. There were things I liked and there were things I didn't like. I guess that's not saying much, but the slow motion scenes were overly done even for a 3D film, it would look even worst when watching it in 2D. Oh and I think if you've played the last 2 RE games, you may enjoy this movie more. Robert loved it, but that's Robert.
