KICKASS2

Closure. Limited – Zombie Wars – Max Brooks

Set in the same terrifying universe as his million-selling World War Z, Closure, Ltd is among the short stories found within this collection. In it, Max interviews the head of a company dedicated to finding emotional closure for survivors of the zombie war by assassinating their former zombie attackers. Written in his trademark style, these tales are a combination of horror, drama, and socio-political commentary.

After leading his last book World War Z I’m just waiting for his next book, and this short story book picks up where the other one left off. When I started reading it you jump right into it again, he is so obsessed with zombies and its just so good you honestly believe that zombies are real and his books are the only way to fight them and go on as the human race. A very fun and easy read, if you get into it you can finish it in a few days, took me two weeks and I was taking my time. I honestly wish there was more and he takes a very different route with this one, introducing vampires. This time around you get their perspective and how the vampires fared against zombies and how zombies would react to them as well. His talent is getting you to believe the stories that he is writing are real and is happening right now. If you read World War Z then you have to read this as well.

Review: Abraham Lincoln – Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.

Its just one of those movies that is so out there you think they can’t screw up the history of a man who is very famous. Introducing Vampires and Zombies to so many stories isn’t new but Abraham Lincoln was just a fresh twist on the story. It was interesting as it developed, why Abraham introduced the emancipation proclamation and even how he grew from a young man into the man that he is known for as well as being a vampire hunter. The movie doesn’t take the steps that you think it does and then he trains to be a vampire hunter and fights the south. The whole movie is a roller coaster and then ending was just ridiculous, but if you like vampire movies this is a fun one.

The Walking Dead – 2nd Season

The world we knew is gone. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living.

The Second Season started just a bit slower then the first one but just as nerve racking. The show never disappoints honestly and towards the end it just keeps getting better and better as the episodes are released. This season was 13 episodes and as we got closer things got more insane, and now that I want to know whats going to happen next the season ends. And unlike a lot of other shows, they do kill off main characters here and they do change drastically so things start to take a different shape from episode to episode.

I don’t want to ruin this for anyone or mention anything that could spoil it for people. But this season is suspenseful and damn good, I can’t wait for the third season. I can’t blame so many people jumping on the Zombie band wagon, this show just did it right. If you haven’t seen Season 2 then you should, its really worth it.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

Tucker & Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are attacked by a group of preppy college kids.

This is probably one of the funniest horror comedies I have seen in a while, a twisted situation turns into crazy situation. Two hillbillies meet a bunch of college kids, and one of the kids knocks her head and falls into the lake, the hillbillies save her but the college kids think they are kidnapping her and going to cook her alive. Tyler Labine (The Big Fat Guy with the Beard) is one of my favorite comedians and he is one of the hillbillies, and the college kids try to kill them to save their friend, and the hillbillies don’t know what the hell is going on. The movie just keep getting more twisted and hilarious and these hillbillies don’t know what the hell is happening.

Knights of Badassdom – Trailer

This going to be fantastic, a fantasy world gone wrong with the best bunch of comedians thrown into the mix. In Knights of Badassdom, Kwanten plays a young man who needs an escape, so his friends kidnap him, strap some fake armor to his chest, and bring him to a LARPing (Live-Action Role Playing battle. It sounds like a lot of harmless fun. Until they summon a real demon who proceeds to rip out throats with her teeth. It goes from break-up story to buddy comedy to horror action film, and who knows where else it could end up?
