Zombie Love!

I know exactly when my fascination with zombies started. I was nine years old and my mom was as usual over at a neighbors house partying. I was suppose to be asleep but I wasn’t. I was doing what I always did. I had snuck down to the TV set and turned on Creature Features on channel 2.

Creature Features was the greatest TV program ever and I do mean ever. It was hosted by Bob Wilkens when I watched it. It was all about the horror movies. Anything from The Creature From The Black Lagoon (One of my all time favorites) to The Blob. He showed all types of movies, B movies, C movies, “how the heck did this movie ever get made” movies.

My favorite was of course, Night of the Living Dead. I never missed it and luckily it seemed like he showed it fairly regularly. That movie scared the snot out of me the first time I saw it. I can remember waking up in the middle of the night and staring out my bedroom window trying to find the zombies.

I think the first three or four times I saw it were the same. Bone chilling petrified. I of course loved this feeling. The scarier the movie the better. Thus was born my zombie loving ways. Trust me on this, you don’t know loving until you know zombie loving.

I make it a point to see and read as many zombie related items as I can. Over the last few years at Halloween it has become my new tradition to read a zombie horror novel. This last year my brother and I added the movie Shaun of the Dead to this tradition. Now if I could just convince my wife to join in the fun. She thinks I am crazy, no one disagrees.

Here is a list of some of my favorite books and movies. What are you waiting for pick one and feel the love.
