Zombie Madness Day 26 – Romero/Of The Dead

Zombie Madness Day 26 – Romero/Of The Dead

Yesterday we kicked off the Sweet Sixteen with a match up from the Series & Sequels bracket. #7 RESIDENT EVIL garnered 80% of the votes and beat #6 28 Weeks Later is a match that ended up not being as close as I thought it would be. Today we go to another heavyweight match up from the Romero/Of The Dead bracket.
