Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi: Spec-Fic Friday, Oct. 21st

What if Dr. Seuss wrote The Call of Cthulhu?

If you haven't read I Am Legend yet, please do. In my opinion, the novel has more emotional impact. You really start to feel Neville's despair. I liked the Will Smith movie quite a bit, but I still prefer the book.
Meet the Sci-Fi Author Who Inspired Real Steel and a Dozen Other Films

I haven't seen all the movies on this list, but I agree with Zombieland in the 10 best and Rave to the Grave in the 10 worst.
10 Best & 10 Worst Zombie Movies (Stuart Bedford at Whatculture!)

My own list of the best zombie movies would include:


     28 Days Later

     Army of Darkness (technically, it counts)

     Undead (yes, it's a little cheesy; but when he fights those zombie fish ... best ... scene ... EVER!)

     Return of the Living Dead (1985) One of my top favorites. When the zombie breaks out to the music of "Do you want to party?" What could be better than that? And all those split dogs, barking their little half-heads off? Or how about the zombie who says, "Send more paramedics" like he's ordering take out? Love it!

And, if you CRAVE a few zombie movies to celebrate Halloween, here's one heck of a list:
Zombie movies

I would add to this list, Night Things, by Thomas F. Monteleone.
The Most Terrifying Books of All Time, by paulgoatallen from the B&N Community
