I like to put on familiar films in the background while I work. I'll put them on on my computer which has the added advantage of preventing me from compulsively checking email. Yesterday it was The Plague of the Zombies by Hammer Films. Great, great movie, a very early zombie film but it's more more spooky Gothic horror rather then the blood splattered newer zombie films. I prefer the older style. Wikipedia describes it like this:
Sir James Forbes and his daughter, Sylvia, travel to a Cornish village at the request of his former pupil, Dr. Peter Thompson . He needs help solving a spate of mysterious deaths, and Peter's wife, Alice is soon the next victim. The trail leads to Squire Hamilton , who has returned from a trip to Haiti armed with voodoo.
Anyway I just discovered that friend and super talented writers John Reppion and Leah Moore has penned a prequel of sorts to The Plague of the Zombies. The art is by Dave Hitchcock and I think it looks great.
