Though the premise of Zombieland is nothing new (a band of plucky survivors joining forces against the undead), this modern zombie movie is a polished take on the genre. The four leads (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin) all do well in their respective roles, but it’s in the wit and humor of the interpersonal relationships that the movie really shines.

Codex Mortis

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
