Land of the Dead

Time to break out the record collectionZombieland” may not be very good, but its release does open the door to one of my favorite pastimes: Writing about zombie movies.

Over at MSN (and with apologies to Max Brooks), this week’s movie gallery considers what cinema has taught us about surviving the zombie apocalypse … and once you’re prepped, hop back to the NOW site for a quick scroll through the movies from which “Zombieland” harvested all its best ideas. (I can’t believe I forgot “Night of the Comet”.)

And further along the zombie trail, Sony’s long-awaited DVD of Fred Dekker’s “Night of the Creeps” arrived yesterday. Halloween brings out the best in everyone, don’t it?
