World War Z
Just when you thought you were zombie-d out and couldn't handle one more apocalypse film ... think again!
Brad Pitt stars as a man on a mission to find the source of the sudden worldwide zombie outbreak in hopes of finding a cure. Sure, we've seen it all before, but this one grabs hold of you right from the start and doesn't let go. It's the most realistic and therefore frightening zombie movie I've seen. Call it 'Contagion' meets '28 Days Later' with the tone and feel of 'Signs'.
Now, I haven't read the book, and I'm hearing the film is somewhat different and fans of the book may be disappointed in some ways. So be wary of that. But for me, the movie was tremendous. It's gripping and terrifying from start to finish. In fact, my heart is still pounding as I write this. Don't watch the trailer. Don't read about it. Just go see it.
