Zombies are inherently funny. Sure they eat brains and trigger global pandemics, but they lurch around more slowly than a legless dog, they're constantly bumping into things and the distant stare they all affect is more amusing than alarming. Straight-laced zombie horror flicks from the old school, before the walking dead learned how to run, continue to mystify me. Are these people really so stupid that they'll let themselves be caught that something my 10-years-dead hamster could outrun?
Zombie comedy, much better formula. Granted, the dead humans walking in Ruben Fleischer's "Zombieland" are the better, stronger, faster variety featured in more modern takes on the genre. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing how stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg ("Adventureland"), Emma Stone ("Superbad") and Abigail Breslin ("Little Miss Sunshine") deal with the hordes as they make their way across the country. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I strongly recommend checking out the new trailer that popped up on Apple today.
