I'm starting to run out of movies that I can do this with off the top of my head, so if you've got a request, post it to the comments and if I know enough about the movie, I'll make it happen next week.
Original post for all newcomers, you can find the other two on my profile.
Well Zach, I'm sorry to say but I may have finally snapped. Let me explain and maybe you can talk me down from this metaphorical ledge. All this weirdness that's going on hasn't really filled me with a sense of dread as much as...nostalgia. Yep, Zach, I'm feeling a little nostalgic for a movie that came out in 1985. I'd tell you the director, but you'd know the movie right away, so I'll just tell you it doesn't star any big names, and I'm not sure they went on to do anything else. The movie is heavy on gore, though, and by the end the cast is literally wading through it. It was a sequel to a movie that did very well, but it didn't do as well. Think about it for awhile Zach, we'll talk again soon.......
Well, Zach? Were my hints to generic or could you get it? 1985, well-known director but less famous cast, full of blood and guts and a less successful sequel? Zach, I'm talking about Day of the Dead. Sequel to Dawn of the Dead, and of course Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead was actually my favorite one of the trilogy. George Romero and I apparently have that much in common. The actors did well, but the fact that they weren't well known made it so much easier to sink into the post-zombie world. Something else that added to that was how great the setting was. It was filmed in a mine, if you can you believe it. They didn't use a set or a soundstage, they actually went underground to film! It must've gotten claustrophobic with all the equipment around. Did you know that the blood and entrails at the end are real? Calm down, Zach, I don't mean it was actually a person's entrails, they killed a pig to get them. Sorry if I scared you. Apparently there was at least one animal harmed in the making of that film. The climactic scene at the end was mostly volunteers who got a hat, a copy of the fake newspaper proclaiming the dead walk, and one dollar. The dollar's not so great, but wouldn't it be amazing to own one of those pieces of memorabilia? Imagine how much you could get for them on one of those online auction sites. I don't think I could bring myself to do it, though. What about you, Zach? Could you bring yourself to sell something so cool and memorable?
