Sound On Sight Radio #159 – Zombieland


The eating of human flesh is one of the last great taboos in Western society, despite the fact that the world’s hunger issues could be easily be solved by eating everyone who looks like they taste of Popeye’s chicken. Perhaps that’s why zombie films are so popular, as they touch on deep-seated, primal fears. As to why zombie comedies find such success, perhaps it’s because for every person quivering with disgust at the reanimated dead, there are two others with computer folders full of dead baby jokes, hatecore, and photos of car wrecks turned into motivational posters. Tonight, Sound on Sight takes a look at the zombie comedy phenomenon, as we review this week’s number one film, Zombieland, as well as British rom-zom-com Shaun of the Dead, and 1985’s Return of the Living Dead.
