Every Day the Dead are Shufflin' Shufflin'  
I wonder how much of my disinterest in the zombie trend and its associated media and phenomena stems from having substantially more contact with dead things than most modern urbanites and suburbanites?

You want a lasting visceral reaction, spend some time working with a sea lion carcass so foul and decayed that seagulls won't eat it anymore.

That'll take some of the charm out of dressing up like a rotting corpse for a flash mob.

The whole Zombie Apocalypse thing doesn't appeal to me either, and I've found that the movies all tend to be basically the same thing. I enjoyed 28 Days Later and Zombieland, but most of the others just don't do it for me.

Hmm. Both good, though I'll admit a strong preference for Shaun of The Dead over Zombieland.

...even if I did visit the amusement park Zombieland was filmed at just because it was filmed there. n.n;

It's funny, as I still am interested in seeing Pontypool, but from the clips I've heard on the radio I don't even know if those shamblers make an actual appearance... but are more a vehicle to drive plot.

I don't think I've ever really liked a zombie movie because I like zombies. Of course, the only zombie movie I can truly say that I've watched is The Serpent and the Rainbow. So maybe I'm not a good judge of the whole thing.

Maybe it's more the fear of undead than the idea of sticky, rotting, dead.

Speaking of which, why doesn't anyone ever smell zombies coming a mile away?
