I just finished watching Land of the Dead, a zombie movie by George Romero. If you don't know who George Romero is, basically he started the entire zombie theme with his first movie, Night of the Living Dead.

While I'm not going to spoil the ending of Land of the Dead, it was a bit easy to tell how the ending was going to turn out. It seems like every zombie movie ends with the same last scene. I started thinking about this and wonder just how to make a new zombie film without the stereotypical heros and zombies. It would be more interesting to follow further on the story of Dawn of the Dead. Instead of worring about the zombies the people started to have problems just dealing with the fact they might be the only people alive. Very intersting and reasons why it's still my favorite zombie themed horror movie. :)

BTW the remake of Dawn of the Dead dealt slighty with the same subject as the first movie but not as in much detail.
