The 5 Scariest Zombie Films (And The 5 Funniest)

The undead seems to be a go-to theme in horror films; one which has arguably been overdone to the point of becoming a trope. Yet, amongst the clutter of countless zombie films over the decades, several have withstood the decay of time and have proven bone-chillingly scary to this day. Whether invoked by gory visuals, unsettlingly eerie environments, or tense jump scares - zombie movies have continued to provide thrills and chills.

At the same time, the concept of these staggering, brain-eating beings can also be a funny one, which can serve as comedy film fodder. Various movie creators have caught on to this fact, and have cranked out a number of hilarious features that include them.

Godfather of Gore: Five Essential Films of Lucio Fulci

Dominic O’Brien selects his Five Essential Films of Lucio Fulci

Highly regarded the world over by obsessive cult film fans as an often tyrannical filmmaker, as well as the godfather of Italian gore films, Lucio Fulci’s films still hit a nerve with viewers old and new. His nightmarish visuals and dreamlike narrative style still feels fresh and inventive. Granted over the years his work deteriorated – as did his health – which brought an even harsher critical backlash from reviewers and fans alike. Even after his passing back in 1996 he has left a generation of horror fans with some of the most haunting and nightmarish of genre films. Now his work is more revered then ever, so with that in mind I present the top 5 films from Italian maestro Lucio Fulci…

Comic-Con 2019 Interview: Adrienne Barbeau on Her Return to the World of Creepshow

Adrienne Barbeau is one of the great legendary talents that helped shape the landscape of genre cinema throughout the ’80s, and still continues to thrill fans with her onscreen work to this very day. Barbeau, who was part of the cast for George A. Romero’s original Creepshow, is returning to the series and will appear in the brand new series’ very first episode, which airs on Shudder on September 26th.

While at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Daily Dead caught up with Barbeau via the phone and had the chance to speak with her briefly about her return to the world of Creepshow, what we can expect from her episode, how it was Tom Atkins who talked her into taking on the role of Wilma for the original Creepshow in the first place, and more.

Creepshow Returns to Pulpy Roots

David Crow Jul 24, 2019

We chat with The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero and Giancarlo Esposito about bringing Creepshow back for a new generation.

If it wasn’t for Creepshow, Greg Nicotero might’ve been a doctor. That’s at least one way of looking at it, which Nicotero seems more than open to consider when he sits down for a whirlwind of interviews at San Diego Comic-Con. Once medical school bound, and in the footsteps of his father, Nicotero instead had a chance meeting at the age of 15 with George A. Romero, the beloved cult auteur of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead. Granted the latter two hadn’t been made when Nicotero met the filmmaker, but The Crazies had, which Nicotero’s uncle had starred in. And when the young man bumped into Romero at a restaurant, the director happened to

Comic-Con 2019 Interview: Greg Nicotero Discusses Celebrating the Spirit of the Original Creepshow as Well as George A. Romero and Stephen King with New Shudder Series

We’re only about two months away from the debut of the brand new Creepshow anthology series on Shudder, and this writer could not be more excited. A brand new trailer debuted during Comic-Con this weekend, and while in San Diego, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with showrunner and executive producer Greg Nicotero about what we can expect when it debuts on September 26th.

During the roundtable interview, Nicotero discussed how the Creepshow series will continue to celebrate practical effects and the comic book spirit from the original films, and that he’s worked in tons of Easter eggs into each episode that horror fans are going to want to keep their eyes peeled for. Nicotero also gave us some insights into a few of the upcoming stories we’ll see in the Creepshow series, how much fun he had inviting his friends to be a part of the show,

George A. Romero's Non-Zombie Movies, Ranked

A cinema renegade and proud Hollywood outsider despite his influence on the horror genre and popular culture at large, George A. Romero left behind a body of work far stranger and more fascinating than most of his contemporaries. Having created the modern concept of the zombie and ushered in an age of more extreme horror cinema with his seminal Night of The Living Dead, Romero was largely unable to escape the shambling ghouls he first popularized.

Though he'd return to the same well time and time again (releasing six "of the dead" films from 1968-2009), Romero also produced some massively underappreciated and thought-provoking work outside of zombie cinema. From post-modern vampire films to anti-establishment domestic dramas and straightforward thrillers, below are the non-zombie films of George A. Romero, ranked.

Shudder's Creepshow: Trailer Revealed And Premiere Date Announced

“They Won’t Stay Dead!”: The History and Undying Impact of Night Of The Living Dead Trading Cards

If trading cards are the ultimate Night of the Living Dead collectible, I'd also argue that Night of the Living Dead is the ultimate non-sports trading card. And it's because of the autographs. Stay with me...

The non-sports trading card scene was introduced to the subject of horror movies as early as the 1960s, with Nu Cards' Horror Monster Series and Topps' Monster Laffs, followed by You'll Die Laughing and Shocking Laffs in the 1970s.

What these cards had in common is that they depicted numerous early horror and contemporary B-horror movies in a satirical format. It seems that comedy was the only safe way to deliver horror trading cards to kid consumers of the era. Following blowback from the ban on Topps' famous 1962 sci-fi horror set, Mars Attacks, printers weren't taking any more chances.

It wasn't until the 1980s that individual horror flicks got their own dedicated, non-satirical
