The Last Of The Living
Run Time (to Long) 85 minutes
As the rest of humankind succumbs to a virus that turns them into flesh-eating zombies, three pals (Morgan Williams, Robert Faith and Ashleigh Southam) not only survive but thrive -- enjoying the easy pickings of a deserted landscape. All of that changes, however, when they meet a pretty girl. Now, the guys' inner heroes get a chance to emerge in this zombie comedy from New Zealand as they help the lovely young scientist in her race to find a cure.
OK, Zombie comedy's are hit and miss and this was a huge miss. When I saw the preview I got a little excited. 20 minutes into this thing
I had yet to laugh giggle or care really. This is awful the High Tension awful. I can not even tell you how it ends I could not finish it sorry. If you watch it and I'm wrong please let me know.
The last of the living cover art gets 5 bloody brains as for the movie:

The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror By Christopher Moore.
Christmas crept into Pine Cove like a creeping Christmas thing: dragging garland, ribbon, and sleigh bells, oozing eggnog, reeking of pine, and threatening festive doom like a cold sore under the mistletoe.
'Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit. It is the hap-hap-happiest time of the year, after all.
But not everybody is feeling the joy. Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a holiday miracle. No, he's not on his deathbed; no, his dog hasn't run away from home. But Josh is sure that he saw Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven-year-old has only one prayer: Please, Santa, come back from the dead.
But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. (Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle," he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.
