The 26 Best Romantic Comedies of the 21st Century (So Far)

A deceased human being who has partially returned to life due to undeterminable causes. In the s, the zombie onslaught was everywhere: Replacing shuffling, sometimes laughable slow zombies with sprinting lunatics did a lot to revitalise the perception of the undead as legitimate monsters once again. An abundance of zombie-related media has meant that what exactly makes a reanimated cadaver is now more debatable than ever: It just so happens that for every Land of the Dead, we get fifty Volcano Zombies.

With the surely imminent death knell of the modern zombie craze not too far away, I decided to take a look at some of the best zombie movies of the 21st century so far. World War Z is a movie that gets dramatically worse with every watch. At the cinema, I thought it was quite the ridiculous but fun spectacle.

After watching it a few times since, how out of touch it is with its source combined with the troubled production coming through at some points sent it down in my estimations.

Plus, that Pepsi scene was gross. You should kind of get that almost immediately from its name. But Bong of the Living Dead is still a lot of fun. A low-budget zombie movie, what Bong lacks in terms of technical quality, it makes up for it in terms of laughs and unexpected scares. When a group of stoners light one up and start discussing the zombie outbreak, exactly that happens. Here Alone starts off strongly with plenty of intrigue as a lone woman makes a simple living for herself in the woods.

The tension is always bubbling and threatening to boil over in the post-apocalypse, leading to plenty of anticipation for the reveal of the zombies, who are…terrible. The person who appears to rescue him looks exactly like Sam, has the same job, and also claims to be no one else but Sam Bell. The disoriented audience, just like Sam Bell well, both of them , constantly takes guesses as to what is really going on in a lunar facility, and what dark secret the company might hold.

And also — which Sam Bell is the real one? Perhaps none of them…. Rockwell does tremendous acting work as Sam Bell x2. He made it perfectly believable, which is a demonstration of his range and abilities as a true versatile actor.

Obedient to his commands, she unconsciously signs over her life savings to the Thief. A year after this incident, a traumatized Kris meets Jeff Carruth himself , with whom she forges a romantic relationship. Later on she discovers that he had a similar grim experience as her. They develop a telepathic bound, which is somehow all connected to a pig farm run by a mysterious Sampler Andrew Sensenig.

While watching, he makes a shocking discovery, that the actor from that movie looks psychically identical to him. The sepia tone cinematography by Nicolas Bolduc makes Toronto look like a real vestibule of hell. While visually mesmerizing, it is also an absorbing film because of its equivocal story opened to multiple interpretations. This is always a guarantee for the re-watch value.
