You heard the man! Earlier today NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg instructed those who are living in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy to “just stay hunkered in to your home and have a sandwich out of the fridge and sit back and watch television.” Seeing as how you are probably about to watch yet another movie during your Hurricane Sandy free day, we thought we’d offer some film selections that will make today’s rainy, wind-swept citywide freeze seem more manageable by comparison. Hey…at least Sandy’s not a zombie hurricane, right? Right.
Zombies go with anything. Read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies lately? So this horror comedy will be remembered less for its rotting undead than the funny misadventures of a quartet of misfits in post-apocalyptic America. Jesse Eisenberg fills in as the poor man’s Michael Cera, Woody Harrelson does his funny redneck routine, Abigail Breslin is not annoying and Superbad‘s Emma Stone comes into her own as a sexy loner. They pick off the flesh-eaters on the way to the Pacific Palisades theme park like National Lampoon’s Vacation with a thirty-ought-six. There’s also a surprise appearance by … well, that would be telling. Load up on the popcorn and see for yourself.
Extras: Deleted scenes, FX documentary, making of featurette and commentary from cast and crew.
