Are zombies really that memorable? When you think about it, today’s undead munchers are not exactly an interesting crowd since all they do between meals is wander around in a trance. The pre Romero vegetarians are even worse, as they spend most of their time under the thumb of a zombie master, although on the odd occasion they do rebel against their tyrannical leader.
Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, and apart from a few moderately successful variations, they haven’t progressed beyond the flesh-eating antics of Night of the Living Dead (1968). But on the odd occasion a couple of zombies stand out from the faceless crowd of walking corpses, and what some these ghouls lack in personality, they make up for in other ways.
So here’s a list of ten memorable zombies that stood out for me, as an avid horror movie fan.
“Choke on ’em!” Famously snarled by Joseph Pilato as Captain Rhodes in George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead, that line and the blood-drenched scene in which it’s uttered form one of the most memorable moments from any living dead film. With their latest batch of shirts, Fright Rags is paying homage to the relentless Rhodes, as well as Escape From New York, C.H.U.D. (with a Tmnt twist), and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
The four new shirts from Fright Rags are now available in T-shirt sizes Small – 5x-Large and women’s shirt sizes Small – 2x-Large. The Day of the Dead and Escape From New York shirts are priced at $27 apiece, while the C.H.U.D. and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari shirts can be purchased for $24 each. To learn more, visit:
