Pride & Prejudice & Zombies comes out this weekend, and, well let’s talk about this for a second.  How does a movie like this get made? I’m pretty sure the conversation had to have gone like this:

Guy 1: Hey, I think we should adapt Pride & Prejudice.

Guy 2: Someone has done that before.

Guy 1: Yeah, but not for a while so it could work.

Guy 2: No, no, no.  I’ve got a better idea. What if… bear with me… we add zombies to it?

Everyone in the room: That sounds like a pretty terrible idea.

Guy 2: Trust me.

Everyone else: Screw it, let’s give it a shot.

And here we are.  Somehow.  Regardless of how ridiculous this movie looks, it gives me a chance to talk about some zombies.  I’m not a huge fan of zombie movies but do really like a few.  Let’s get to the list:

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

Since it’s Halloween week, I figured there was no better time to return to horror movies. I’ve already done Top 10 all time horror movies and top 10 slasher movies, so this time I’m turning my sights on modern horror movies (after 2000).  There are a lot more bad ones than good ones (always remember that The Devil Inside somehow exists) but there are more good ones than you would think.

10. Orphan

– I’m really only including it for the really cool twist at the end.  Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
