Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) Dir. Don Coscarelli

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) possesses one of the oddest concepts for a film you’ve ever heard. Not just the horror genre, but cinema as a whole. Describing the film to the uninitiated will make you sound crazy. It sounds like a pitch idea culled from a group of middle school aged boys on the tail end of a macaroni & cheese and chocolate milk bender. IMDb describes it as follows: “Elvis and JFK, both alive and in nursing homes, fight for the souls of their fellow residents as they battle an ancient Egyptian Mummy.”

During the late Eighties and early to mid Nineties there were a rash of coming of age/children adventure films. Some of the more famous ones include The Sandlot, Stand By Me, The Goonies, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and even a remake of The Little Rascals. There is one that always seems to get over looked however, and that is the 1987 film The Monster Squad.

28 Days Later (2002) Dir. Danny Boyle

To borrow a phrase from the hipster community, I've been watching zombie movies since before they were cool. Before you correct me, I know this isn't a true “zombie” movie. George A. Romero gets the credit in my book for the modern zombie movie and therefore I follow his rules when discussing the undead: slow-moving, mindless creatures driven by the primal need to feed. I GOT IT, nerds.
