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.

Check it out and let me know what you think! You can pick it up at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else). Enjoy!
