ZOMBIE MADNESS DAY 24!!

ZOMBIE MADNESS DAY 24!!

We’ve come to the end of Round Two!  We’ve done 46 match ups in 23 days, with the final two match ups happening today! Once we’ve closed Round Two we will take a break for a couple of weeks and resume the Sweet 16 on January 12th!

Yesterday’s matches were no surprise to me. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) won with 85% of the votes to 15% for City Of The Living Dead, while THE WALKING DEAD captured 100% of the votes against Resident Evil: Extinction.

Today’s matches close out the Action/Horror and Comedy brackets for Round Two. We’ll do Action/Horror first and end in the Comedy Bracket with what I think is one of the hardest matches yet.

As I said at the top, the Comedy bracket brings us one of our tougher match ups. Some may say it’s not a toughie, but each film has some die hard fans. So let’s see which one comes out on top!
