Sure, I know it's a horror movie and not a mystery or a crime movie, but as a writer, it taught me a lot about how to slowly build tension throughout a story while keeping the action moving and the audience interested. For a B movie with no budget, it was a great bit of storytelling. It has inspired me to try to take a slightly different angle in how I tell my stories.
This movie TOTALLY freaked me out when I was a teenager. For months, I was seeing zombies everywhere. Took me a long, long time to get over it. Good stuff!
I've seen it at least 5 times and it still freaks me out!
Ha! Now I don't feel so bad!
Seriously, that movie was the first and last horror movie I ever watched. I'm such a wimp (though you'd never know it from my books!)
What I like most about Zombies is their lack of inhibitions. I do feel bad for them, though. I could only imagine their medical and dental coverage leaves a lot to be desired. To be dead for such a short time and yet acquiring such chronic gingivitis must be tough. Yuk.
