  • Shawn of the Dead
    By far the best zombie movie out there!

  • Zombieland
    I thought it was going to scare but it cracked me up instead! It's one I could watch over and over. Woody Harrelson as a gun slinging zombie hunter, yum! What's there not to like?
  • The Original
    The original zombie movie is still the best, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I can still remember seeing it for the first time while babysitting for a neighbor while they went to a halloween party. They got home around 1:30 and being 14 at the time I ran all the way home in the dark afraid they were coming for me. I've been in love with zombie movies ever since.
  • Favorite Zombie
    Shawn of the Dead was a perfect mixture of horror, gore, and comedy.
  • Al Davis
    He went for years before they found a way to finally kill him.
  • Dawn of the Dead 2004 movie
    This remake is bloody (and bloody scary), stylish, smart, audacious and edgy, darkly pessimistic yet inflected with touches of deliciously sick humor.
  • Zombieland
    It just doesn't get old.
  • 28 Days Later
    Modern twist on the "Zombie". Incredibly well done, intense, and graphic----three musts for a successful zombie flick!!
    Shopping and Zombies, it just doesn't get any better than that!
  • Zombieland
    Great cast and funny, yet bloody like a zombie movie should be...and lots of Twinkies. Excellent addition to the zombie genre and my favorite!
  • World War Z
    If you havent read Max Brooks novel, go get it. I was hooked after the first two pages. World War Z is the compilation of short stories from survivors of the zombie pandemic. Lou i am telling you, you will not be dissapointed.
  • Dawn of the Dead
    I love Shawn of the Dead, but the best will always be Dawn of the Dead and its social commentary. I also agree with the comment about World War Z - good stuff.
  • Zombieland
    I really like Shaun of the Dead as well, but Zombieland just barely comes out on top for me. I really like the pacing of the movie and chemistry between Eisenberg and Harrelson. The 'rules' that popped up on screen were funny (I love the Double-tap rule) and spot on. Great movie.
  • Thriller!
    Can a video count as a very short movie? I vote for Michael Jackson's Thriller!
  • Walking Dead
    This is a great series on AMC. Creepy and gruesome for a television series...
  • zombie
  • Zombies
    Gotta love Lucio Fulci's Zombies with the zombie vs shark scene.
  • Dawn of the Dead
    I like the 2004 remake of this movie as well.
  • in it to win it
    movie; 28 days later
    book; world war Z
  • Resident Evil
    Resident Evil
  • Shawn of the Dead
    Always best if you can learn to laugh at your Zombie problem. The Zombie attack while Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" plays on the jukebox is one of the all time great Zombie scenes ever.
  • Shawn of the Dead
    My son got me to watch it one day and I enjoyed it. I like when they combine funny and scary.
  • Zombie book
    Night of the Living Trekkies!! Laugh out loud funny!
  • Zombie
    Night of the Living Dead
  • Zombie
    I'm loving the Walking Dead TV series. It's great!
  • World War Z
    There are so many fun movies, & I love The Walking Dead on AMC, but my absolute fave zombie book is World War Z by Max Brooks. Scary, sad, tense, funny, & very human.
  • Deadgirl
    This is a really fine film that I saw that I did not realize was a Zombie movie when I started watching hooked me right away...a lot of zombie movies advance the premise that the humans, as opposed to the zombies, are the real evil force..this movie really pushes that theme to the limit. Very well done.
  • Ahhh Zombies!
    A very funny movie told through the eyes of the Zombies. The Zombies think everyone else is affected but when the camera angle changes you see them as zombies. They think they are talking to each other but all you hear is Ahhh Very funny ( wait for the zombie kiss)
  • Zombies
    The classic Dawn of the Dead.
  • EERIE!
    Zombieland(full length) Thriller (MJ) Video short
  • Zombie Movie
    Dawn of the Dead
  • Zombies
    I've just recently gotten on the Zombie band-wagon with the urging of my husband. I made it through all of The Walking Dead graphic novels in a week, so now I'm up-to-date. Guess they are my favorite, since I haven't really read anything else.
  • fave
  • fav zombie book so far
    I hope it's not too late to enter this contest! My favorite zombie book so far (since I have not yet read Lou and Ed's) is a novel called The Reapers Are the Angels, written by Alden Bell, published by Holt Paperbacks in 2010.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
