October = Zombie Love

The Walking Dead was back on Sunday with an awesome new episode…and I also got the 8th installment in the Walking Dead comic book series.


October is a great month for zombies, and I recently watched a few movies that I’d never seen before. Each of these is a unique take on the genre.


Fido –Timmy is delighted with the family's first zombie, whom he names Fido. Fido becomes Timmy's best friend, and runs afoul of prejudice, circumstance, hardware faults in the Zomcon collars, and neighborhood bullies.


Undead – A quaint Australian fishing village is overcome by meteorites that turn its residents into the ravenous undead, leaving a small group of those unharmed to find a way out.


Survival of the Dead – On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state.


Has anyone seen any of these? What did you think…or do you have a favorite that you want to recommend?


  1. I love Fido and could watch it over and over. I especially love the ending where Fido picks up a cigarette, tickles the baby, and smiles at the mom. Priceless.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  2. I've seen snippets of the Walking Dead, but as I'm not into the zombie genre, it's something I stay away from.
