Call them “cult classics.” “Guilty pleasures.” “Comfort movies.” We all have a mental rolodex of flicks that may not be terribly popular but, for one reason or another, they resonate in a very special way. Maybe you saw it at the right moment. Maybe you just see gold where everyone else sees feces. Whatever the case, these are the special favorites that you keep stashed away for sick days. Here are some of ours.
This week’s guest blog editor, “Halloween II” director Rob Zombie, shared his own Sick Day Stash pick with us, as you’ll see in the video below. For the record, no one was trying to embarrass you, Rob. Please don’t send Sid Haig and Bill Moseley after me. I’m not sure my frail heart could take the scare. With that out of the way, I would expect nothing less than “Dawn of the Dead” — the George Romero one, of course — from a horror geek like Zombie. Hit play to hear him defend it.
