The setting is Louisville, Kentucky. The movie follows a couple of workers in a medical supply warehouse who unwittingly unleash a zombie apocalypse on the unsuspecting town. And of course, punk rockers are involved–because it’s the 80s.
The movie that started the zombies-craving-brains trope delivers on scares, great special effects, and laughs.

My All Time Favorite
Cabin in the Woods (2012) [Trailer]
Rotten Tomatoes: 91%
This is the best horror movie of this century. Period. You’ll laugh. You’ll scream. You’ll have the best time. Honestly, the less you know about this going in, the better. It’s a movie that EVERYONE needs to see–even if you don’t enjoy horror movies. It’s a must.
What a weird saying ”make your skin crawl” is. It’s like when people say they want to be a fly on the wall. Like wut?
