Zombies Invade Portland
oh and vampires too.
This festival is something I could have only imagined in my dreams, dedicated to all things undead. Its all taking place in Portland, Oregon May 9th-10th it seems. With an uninspired movie like Zombie Strippers coming out, I’m glad the Zompire Film Festival is showcasing some better undead cinema. I only wish I could be there to check out Wasting Away. A unique film which is done from the zombie perspective, who see humans as the infected ones and not themselves. Though I’ll never become a zombie sympathizer, knowing your enemy is key to survival.
Director Matthew Kohnen had this to say, “For too long, Zombies have been the misunderstood Antagonists of Horror Films. Nearly every other classic Monster has gone on to have a film made that takes a moment to look at things from their side. “Interview with a Vampire”, “Young Frankenstein”, even “Teen Wolf”. But never Zombies, no…Remember, Zombies are People, too…”
Here’s an entirely unrelated machinma of zombies and vampires.
Not that it needs to be mentioned but obviously zombies are the greater threat to humankind.
