Zombie Madness Day 36 – Romero/Of The Dead

Zombie Madness Day 36 – Romero/Of The Dead

We’ve had a couple of tough match ups this week, and yesterday’s seemed to cause the most angst amongst you good folks. I apologize for any undue stress, but you all rose to the occasion and picked a winner in yesterday’s match up. It was close all day, with one movie leading all morning, the other one tying it up by evening time, and the winner owning the last couple of hours of voting.

The winner of the match up, the champion of the Comedy bracket, and Final Four combatant is ZOMBIELAND! The voting was all tied up at 6 PM, but the final votes almost all tilted to Zombieland, which wound up with 61% of the votes and is the first Final Four member that was not ranked #1 in its bracket.

That leaves just one more fight left to go this week, and it comes to us from the Romero/Of The Dead bracket. Last week we had a huge upset with 1985’s Day Of The Dead beating the one that started it all, 1968’s Night Of The Living Dead. This means that this bracket will not be sending the #1 seed to the Final Four either. Today’s match up:

#2 DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) vs #5 DAY OF THE DEAD (1985)

Yes, the second and third in the series, both the Romero originals, square off for the last spot in the Final Four!
