I’ve been meaning to post on this all week but haven’t had a chance. Plus, I can’t get the handy Amazon plugin that I had in the earlier version of WordPress to work.

Anyway, I just saw Dawn of the Dead Saturday night and I have to say that it is a surprisingly great movie! I like movies of the horror genre, but sometimes they can be really boring and predictable. For example, the first Halloween was great, but then all of the others sucked. I hated all of the Jason movies. I thought they were really boring. Nightmare on Elm Street – the first one, was good. Again the rest were boring. Of course, one of my favorite movies of all time is the mother of all horror flicks, Psycho. The remake of Dawn of the Dead was great. It had one ending, which is really unpredictable for a horror film. Usually they end at least five times. This one had one ending and you were left thinking, “hmm, that was a good way to end the movie”. But the really interesting part was the ending credits of the film. You can’t miss them if you watch the film. If you miss them then you miss out on what happens to the group of “survivors.” I thought what the director did with the ending credits was very clever.

If you like horror flicks, I highly recommend this film. It won’t disappoint!
