Grab Bag Friday: zombies

Every Friday My 5 Monkey's and I are having a GRAB BAG GIVEAWAY as part of the
Month of Treats festivities.

PRIZE
A bag of Halloween candy treats and a $5 Amazon Gift Card

It's Zombie week!
What are your favorite zombie movies?

Here are a few of mine.....



Shaun of the Dead -
Everyone really needs to see this movie. It's hysterically funny and the zombies are actually quite scary.



Fido - Timmy Robinson's best friend in the whole wide world is a six-foot tall rotting zombie named Fido. But when FIDO eats the next-door neighbor, Mom and Dad hit the roof, and Timmy has to go to the ends of the earth to keep Fido a part of the family. A boy-and-his-dog movie for grown ups, "FIDO" will rip your heart out. 

I love this movie. Not as well known as other zombie movies but it's clever, funny and bittersweet.


28 Days Later - Technically not a zombie movie but I don't care, it's zombie-ish enough for me. This movie creeps me the F out. and I don't scare easily. And.....Cillian Murphy!!

  1. I was going to say a machete, but that means I'd have to be real close to a zombie for a kill...so I'm going to go with some kind of automatic gun LOL!

  3. I'd probably want to have some kind of gun in the event of zombie apocalypse. I don't want to get close to them or have to be particularly skilled.

    I haven't got to see Fido yet, but really want to. Good movie list there :D

    Answer to Question: I'd want one of those vaporizing *ray* guns like the kind used in Star Trek ;D

  5. I loved the remake a few years ago of Night of the Living Dead. I would want some sort of massive gun, so that I could shoot them from far away. If it was som kind of rocket/missile shooter that would be great to kill many at once.

  6. I think I would have to go for a machete, its light and apparently really sharp. I couldn't go for a gun or a crossbow because bullets and arrows run out, and I dunno how good my aim is!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. I'd definitely want a flame-thrower, rocket launcher, or something to that effect. I absolutely LOVED Shaun of the Dead!

  8. I'd probably take a weapon of mass destruction like Eric MF Northman. He'd be my greatest chance at survival. :P

    Happy Friday, K!

  9. It's hard to choose a favorite zombie movie. I remember watching Quarantine alone and it scared the crap out of me, but I really do enjoy the funny zombie movies, like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead. The zombie movie I've watched most is probably 2004's Dawn of the Dead.

  10. I would bring a sword. Practical. And sexy!

  11. Shaun of the Dead has been a long-running fav of mine. And I totally think 28 Days Later counts as a zombie film, though it's a very different angle. i love Cillian!

    Have you seen Rodriguez' "Planet Terror"? It's super campy and trashy, but something about its wackiness worked for me. Be warned--it is disgusting.

    I'd bring a shoulder-mounted grenade launcher. I've always wanted one of those.

  12. Favorite zombie movie- Resident Evil! I would totally bring a crossbow, it is quiet and had reusable ammo!

  16. I think the only zombie movies I've seen are the Resident Evil series. I tend to like them more in books than in movies.

  21. I love zombie movies!! My top ones are Shaun of the Dead, 28 days later and Dawn of the dead. I'm watching Resident Evil on tv right now. 2 thumbs up!! I'd take along a really big knife, because if I had a gun I'd eventually run out of ammo. Thanks!!

  22. I'd have to go with a machete, because if you choose a gun, you have to come up with bullets when you are out - but with a machete, you don't have to worry about that!
