After a postponed date night due to a sick kid on Friday, the Hubby and I were sent off Sunday afternoon to enjoy lunch, a movie and some much needed grocery shopping.
"Warm Bodies" was on the docket. Now typically I'm not a fan of the horror genre. Truth be told, I can't handle scary/gory/creepy movies.
It doesn't surprise me that zombies have taken over as the "monster of choice" if you will. The zombie speaks to the hopelessness that we as a whole feel. The vampire, whose throne the zombie usurped, speaks to a hope, a belief in the goodness of the human spirit. A belief that even after the monster claims you, you still remain; a spark or a soul that can never be extinguished. The zombie, on the other hand, is all consuming
As the Hubby and I exited the theater hand in hand, I predicted that this movie would mark the end of the zombie craze. He pointed out the long list of summer, zombie-themed, movies ahead of us but I stand by my prediction. Because if I've learned anything in my almost 40 years on this planet, it's that faith in the human spirit can crush even the most zombie-fied economy.
