Shaun of the Dead - Where Zombies Come From

In this edition, find out where the horror pop culture sensation zombies first started fascinating audiences. Plus, watch a video essay showing how The Blair Witch Project inadvertently predicted the future of YouTube culture, and throw it back to 1994 with a look back at the silliest moments from the big screen adaptation of the video game Street Fighter from 1994.

night of the living dead part ii

Night of the Living Dead remains an immortal horror classic, but what came next diverges into very different paths. The original film hailed from director George Romero, with a script credited to Romero and John A. Russo. After Night, however, Romero and Russo went their separate ways, with Romero crafting his Dead trilogy, and Russo striking out to make his Return of the Living Dead series. This caused a rift, with Romero taking Russo to court. But at one point, a direct sequel to Night of the Living Dead was penned. Now, 50 years after the original’s release, that sequel – Night of the Living Dead Part II – might rise from the grave.

Best Movies Streaming March 2018

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

The year ticks on. February comes to a close, and March begins. I can think of no better way to kick-off a brand new month than a list of great movies to stream right now (but that may be because I have a limited imagination, who knows). As always, I’ve scoured the far corners of the streaming world to bring you back these entertaining riches.

In this latest edition of Now Stream This, we have a surprisingly funny history lesson from Steven Spielberg, a horror classic that invented an entirely new genre, a Martin Scorsese crime epic, a ’70s mystery movie starring Gene Hackman, a phenomenal new miniseries from Hulu, Steven Soderbergh’s return from retirement, a ’90s thriller, and more!

These are the best movies streaming right now (and a little TV as well). Let’s get streaming.

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

night of the living dead

(Welcome to The Final Girl, a regular feature from someone who has steered clear of horror and is ready to finally embrace the genre that goes bump in the night. Next on the list: George Romero’s zombie classic Night of the Living Dead.)

This may come as a shock, but I kind of love zombie movies. I know this whole series is based on the fact that I wouldn’t touch a horror movie with a 30-inch pole, but I would gladly double-tap on any zombie movie.

There’s something about how zombie movies magnify emotions and present a warped reflection of the human condition — all beneath the pretense of blood and guts, of course — that draws me in. It’s a simple B-movie premise, but zombies speak to larger ideas that I find utterly fascinating.

I can trace back my interest to its lame, nerdy beginnings. It began, as all passions do, with a college seminar. I had attended a seminar by one of my film studies professors, who introduced the theory that movie zombies were a manifestation of the deeper societal fears that plagued America at specific moments in time. It’s by no means an original idea, but it blew my mind open. And it opened me up to the slow, reluctant acceptance of horror movies.

So it’s time to go back to where it all began. It’s time to finally explore George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.

Sometimes these remakes even surpass the original films. It’s rare, but it happens, and when it does, that’s worth celebrating. Let’s look at the best horror remakes of all time.
