When they do zombie versions of stuff like this it peaks my curiosity, admittedly. BUT, I'm a huuuuuge chicken. Horror movies freak me out too bad, to the point that I will have nightmares for weeks. Or longer. The telephone scene in the beginning of Scream? to thisday, if the phone rings after dark and I'm home alone, my heart starts to race a little & the hairs all stand up. Some things I can watch without incident (Hellraiser, etc), but if it's Zombies, Werewolves or anything to do with the devil, it's like the holy grail of bad ideas for me to see it. Even Shaun of the Dead messed with me a little. And the Werewolf in Monster Squad, too. So sad. LOL

Anyone else watch it or read the book?
Added it to my list, going to watch 'The last survivors' tonight, looks B rated, but somewhat like 'Mad Max'.
Wow! I remember seeing this as a kid. I want to say it was in school or something, or it may have been aired on TV. I remember liking it a lot, thanks for bringing it up, I almost completely forgot about it. One of my favorite movies from the 60s ( I think it was 1961 but not sure), is It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. It is looooong and as silly as can be. Stellar cast. But, the best part is it's a bittersweet memory for me. Watching it with my Dad, who laughed like Muttley the cartoon dog if you got him going really good. I miss that man. He was my best friend.

I understand a sequel is in the works, and as a Marvel character I believe Deadpool is also in a couple others this year.
I saw Ryan Reynolds on Graham Norton promoting this. I'm not much on super heroes a whole lot. Just a few. So, not sure whether I want to see it, yet. I swear Isaw a news report that it broke box office records. That got me thinking maybe....
