"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."

Honest it's not my fault

I was supposed to post something today to talk about horror, but I'm horribly, horribly late. My only excuse is...


No, not that Zombie.

These zombies:

This is arguably one of the worst trailers in history. It starts out well enough, and then the announcer says, "... and all the weird black magic that the white man seldom sees." First of all, the whole thing sounds racist. Second, the word 'weird' doesn't fit in at all here. Then it goes into a litany of "it's a tale of" this and "it's a tale of" that.

But it 's a fun movie. Because it's a tale of bad actors chewing the Hollywood scenery that's been decorated to look like the Caribbean.
