The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Appalachian Undead

 Editors: Jason Sizemore and Eugene Johnson

Premise:
An anthology collection of zombie tales set in the Appalachian Mountains.

My Take:
All the stories in this collection are well written and fairly original in nature, though a couple do seem out of place. The crop of authors are some of the best in horror literature with the likes of Elisabeth Massie, Jonathan maberry, Tim Waggoner, John Everson, Tim Lebbon, Ronald Kelly, John Skipp, Gary A. Braunbeck, and more. Like in all anthologies, some stories are more enjoyable than others. Lots of tales with descriptive narrative on the mountain terrian and the people who inhabit the area and how they deal with zombies. What the readers find in the pages are simply a solid anthology of unique tales.

 Rating: So Good
