Zombie update from: UK

I'm sitting in my bunker while hordes of zombies are roaming the wastelands of what previously has been known as Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Electricity is almost out for the night. We have to be very careful with the supplies, you know? Even the tunnels which have been built in the last 25 years post zombie apocalypse are not safe to use in search of food, clothes and ammunition, because to get to your destination you have to go through zombie rats and zombie slugs, and when you get there you still have to venture outside. Not everyone comes back. Nuff said.

Anyway, I've got 30 mins and the ancient laptop I found has a funny post about movie characters the author would have wanted with her in zombie apocalypse. Ha-bloody-ha. It's so ridiculous I just have to share it with you!

1. Cherry in Grindhouse: Planet Terror

Author: She is super cool tough chick, our Rose McGowan! Even without her leg she is lethal.

Me: Yeah, and what happens when she runs out of bullets and can't run away? Zombie om-nom-nom.

2. Shaun from Shaun of The Dead

A: If that guy could survive his bunch of moronic friends in zombie apocalypse, I want him on my team!

Me: Ditto. The worst team of almost survivors I've ever seen. It's a miracle, Shaun stayed alive. On the other hand, he might have been just lucky. Still I would want his luck.

3. Alice from Resident Evil

A: She is mean, lean, killing machine with super powers and immunity to the virus. What else do you want?

Me: Can't argue with that. If she was real, getting in and out of the tunnels would have been a hell of a lot easier.

4. River from Serenity

A: This girl is amazing! Not only she is super fast, she moves like a dream. She'll chop any zombie into little pieces in no time.

Me: She is a valuable asset, but a bit unpredictable. What if her super abilities won't switch on on time? Oh well, at least she can run.

5. Ash from Evil Dead

A: You have to admit, this guy has a lot of experience, - zombies, witches, demons, different worlds. You name it he's done it. I would want him on my team.

Me: Oh yeah, no arguing with that. And that chainsaw would be very useful too! Although he does have terrible luck with his girlfriends :)

After Hessius Mann was convicted of his wife's murder, suppressed evidence came to light and the verdict was overturned-too bad he was already executed. But thanks to the miracles of modern science Hessius was brought back to life. Sort of.

Now that he's joined the ranks of Fort Hammer's pulse-challenged population, Hessius attempts to make a "living" as a private investigator. But when a missing persons case leads to a few zombies cut to pieces, Hessius starts thinking that someone's giving him the run-around-and it's not like he's in any condition to make a quick getaway...

=== September Zombies schedule ===


  1. I'd want Shaun and Ash on my team as well!

  2. With Shaun's luck and Alice's abilities I think we could survive, and Shaun's always good comic relief. I would love to have Ash on my team as well but I'd be afraid his bad luck would cancel out Shaun's.

  3. Oh yes - we love our Resident Evil games & movie :D

    I don't care who's on my team, as long as there's at least ONE member slower, fatter and older than me ... which could serve to buy me the precious 3 seconds I'd need to die of a heart attack in lieu of being munched to death! ;P

  4. Very nice I've been meaning to watch that planet terror movie again for awhile now!

  5. Yeah, I would have to go with Ash from that list. He kicked ass through two Evil Dead films and the 3rd one, Army of Darkness. Plus, a little wacky sense of humor doesn't hurt either.

    I have to say it...sorry...Bruce Campbell rules!!!
