Good sign for Halloween...
When I was Googling "Zombie" I found this pic with an obviously altered message of a traffic road-work sign on the image. Apparently, zombies are big business these days according to all the internet coverage they get.
I have worked with several folks who love watching Zombie films, n think they could make a good one too.
There was actually a job ad for zombies to play part in a "5k Zombie Run" obstacle course on the Cape a few weeks back. Folks actually pay to participate to run thru hordes of Zombies! N the Zombies get paid... Not my idea of fun. But there are many who dig Zombies, n acting the part- to the point of obsession!
I used to always watch scary films for the Halloween holiday.There were all the Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, n then the Halloween series of films. My Dad used to take me to the old Vincent Price "Dr Phibes" films when I was a kid.
Then I used to watch the Twilight Zone and the Outer Limits tv shows. Also I read almost the entire Stephen King collection, plus saw most of the book-based films, like "The Shining". n "Christine."
But probably the most memorable film I've seen in the Horror genre would be the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" re-make with Donald Sutherland in it. Then there was the "Tremor" series. Two makes of "Dune" with worms also. I saw "The Omen" ones too.
This year I don't have any good ones here lined up. I'll be working extra hard for the holiday again, n on the day/night, so won't have much fun. The closest film I have on that theme now would be MIB II on dvd.
Can't believe I didn't get back online to post this earlier in the week. Had it in Drafts a week ago. Unfortunately. stuff came up n I didn't get to any other Halloween creativity fun this year. An Inspection for insurance, n a 6-day work-week, right after being sick a few days- can really eat-up all my time, n de-rail the fun... but I ate a Kit-Kat bar anyways!
Hope you all had a good time. (I'm still picturing cars running away from Zombies.)
