Last Saturday I went and saw the movie “World War Z” with a good friend of mine. I don’t usually go for “horror” type stuff, but this was more of a science-fiction action flick – though it did keep my adrenaline flowing most of the time.
I haven’t read the book that inspired the movie, but I guess that is irrelevant in this case, since (according to the author) it shares only the name, and not much else.
Without giving too much away (I hate spoilers), I give it a thumbs up for overall entertainment value. They did a good job of keeping the story moving, and also avoided a whole lot of gratuitous gore. The zombie makeup was great, and the “swarming” action was morbidly fascinating to watch.
Back in 2010 I wrote a zombie tale of my own, called SURGE. It contains a twist I’ve not seen before in the zombieverse, though I can’t claim to be a true zombiephile, so I may be wrong.
