Latest Zombieland Articles
On a quiet night at home with my parents, flicking through the channels, I landed on the 2009 film gem: Zombieland. Putting aside my weird obsession with Woody Harrelson, as I watched the film for the sixth or seventh time, I was struck by the picture it painted of our nation’s post-zombie apocalypse identity: a landscape bereft of life, ravaged by the undead, survived only by four lucky humans.
