Epiphanies and Zombies

As you probably already know Zombies are the “in thing” these days.  I have no idea when zombies replaced vampires, but somehow they did.  That’s not really very interesting if you’re like me and really don’t care that much for zombies.  Watching one zombie movie after another gets boring after a while, unless it’s comedic, but I recently discovered something interesting while watching these movies:  Boris Karloff was the first to strut his zombie stuff!  If you don’t believe me, watch Frankenstein (1931) again and pay close attention to Karloff’s movements… his hands extended outward as if to balance him as he shifted his weight completely from one leg to the other in those slow methodical steps.  Then re-watch Night of the Living Dead and compare the movements of those zombies with Karloff’s.  Please let me know if you agree or disagree because epiphanies — like so many other things — are in the eye of the beholder.

    I’m so surprised the stupid vampire craze is being replaced by the zombie craze. I never much liked the vampire thing except for the movie remake of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and, later the movie remake of “Interview with a vampire.” You’ve probably heard me say many times that I was never much into the Stephanie Meyer teenage, vegetarian non-threatening vampire thing. Of course the werewolves were pretty cool in the story.

    I can’t really confirm or deny your epiphany since I do not want to re-watch those movies and subject myself to the horror … again. Give me some demons and werewolves at war over humanity anytime and I’m happy. Oh wait … I think that’s “Underworld.”
