Zombie Madness Day 23!

Zombie Madness Day 23!

We had a battle of underdogs and a clash of personal favorites yesterday. How did they do? From the Action/Horror bracket, STATE OF EMERGENCY beat Osombie to improbably advance to the third round! In the Comedy bracket, ZOMBIELAND edged Night Of The Comet (with 88% of the votes!).

We’re down to the final 4 match ups of Round Two! We’ll wrap up this round on New Year’s Eve and take a break while I’m away from the desk for a few days. We’ll resume on the 12th with Round Three!

Today’s match ups close out the Romero/Of The Dead and the Series & Sequels brackets. Let’s hit Romero first! This match up features two of the masters of the genre – George Romero and Lucio Fulci!
