Qué tal?

Un saludo y una pregunta a los foristas.

Pet Cemetery, un libro de Stephen King llevado al celuloide ¿puede ser considerada una película de zombies?

Aunque básicamente el argumento versa en la resurrección de individuos después de la muerte a través de un "ritual de enterramiento" en terreno sagrado indio, los personajes reanimados vuelven con una personalidad distinta, instintos agresivos/asesinos y comportamiento errático. Perdería puntos por no tener las características caníbales, pero parece ser que se respeta la idea original zombística.

Ustedes que opinan?

Para mí es una peli de zombis, sin duda. Gaze, el bebé, es un pedazo de zombi en chiquitito horrible y peligrosísimo.

Hello Father, nice to see you again! Hi Pete!

Well, actually "Mr. Munster" played the role of the neighbor (a retired old man i guess) who knows the secret of the indian burial site. He told the story to the wrong person and paid for that big mistake. What´s the name for that? Bad Karma? jejejeje Smile And You´re Right! that scene of the slashed ankle rules!

Hey! and what about "Churchill", the angry hissing zombie cat, huh? jeje

Ok, very few but good old school effects (gore, visual, etc.) and of course, a very good story. I saw it about 20 times (no kiddin´) when it was released here in México and I think that still like it. But Hell! sequel sucked B-B-B-Big Time!

Anyway, that´s another flick to the Zombie Collection!

Have a good day both of ya!

Can't help it when talking of Stephen King but to mention Salem's Lot as one of my all time favourites. OK no zombies but they are the undead Very Happy Very Happy

Mexico you say, excellent, a friend visited a few years back and brought me a few of the I believe it's the Day of the Dead or festival of the dead toys/ objects, spooky ornaments Laughing Laughing I have a bride and bridegroom and a little box with a skelton beside the bed of someone. Now that is my type of festival and shopping experience Very Happy

Indeed! Day of the Dead it´s not just a film folks! but a religious celebration that takes place on november the 2nd all around the Mexican territory. I´m living at the northern territories, and as an influence of the U.S. we celebrate Day of the Dead and Halloween, people in the southern states are more religious about this celebration.

This celebration has many ways and traditions, some of the few traditions that share most mexicans are "El pan de Muerto" (a fluffy Big Sugared Bread, yum yum!) el "altar de muertos" (it is not a religious altar, but to honor the family members that passed away with their favorite foods, drinks, music, tobacco, etc.) and "Calaveritas de azúcar" (sugar skulls) these have your name on the forehead, and you can use it as an ornament or you can actually eat it. Well there´s more and more to talk about the mexican DAY OF THE DEAD, but i´ts not my intention to bore you to Death jeje! Smile

But still, it´s nice that you have a little part of this beautiful tradition.

Talking about Salem´s Lot, I think that has been on my "must have" shopping list for too long, I think it´s time to check it out, so, we comment that later on, ok?

Well, that´s all, see you around!

As I thought before, you are from México. Cheers! DF?
I'm from Madrid.
I really love El día de los muertos. Much more than Halloween. I've heard that Halloween comes from an ancient celtic tradition. Since that I'm more interested in Halloween. USA is not one of my favorites countries. I don't know why... Bush, father and son? Reagan? Vietnam? Irak? Afganistan? Korea? Atomic Bombs? "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman"? And so on...
And the worst thing: they stole the secret of Bud beer... Laughing Well I know that it was brought by a chech inmigrant. But I don't care...
Laughing Laughing Laughing
Hey, all it's a joke... isn't it?
Laughing

I look for a good and true recipe to make Pan de muerto.

India, Africa, Middle Eastern countries, indians of North America, Australia, The Falklands, Irak... British have a gorgeous amount of bullshit over their shoulders too, Laughing Laughing Laughing

And what about Spain? America was under spanish control for centuries and many many aborigins were killed. And don't forget spanish inquisition? Laughing Laughing Laughing Actually, spanish inquisition was a birthday party in comparison with french or british ones. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Hello Peter!
Hi Father!

Laughing Laughing Laughing
As many people say: "oh México! So far from God and so Close to the U.S.!"
Laughing Laughing Laughing
Seems like we share the same anti-yanki (gobierno gringo) feeling, so... CHEERS! jejejeje Laughing

Well in fact I´m from Chihuahua, a northern state of this beautiful country, whenever you like we could plan a vacation trip to the finest zombie refugee which is "Barrancas del Cobre" (Copper Canyon) on the very core of the Sierra tarahumara ok? Wink

Peter, I´m gonna find you the finest recipe to bake Pan de Muerto, just give me some time, hopefully some aunty or my Mom have one. Do you prefer a "generic" or a "traditional bake in home" kind of recipe? Smile

well, that´s all for now, See you around guys!

Hi Big!
Thank you very much!
I prefer a true recipe. I think that some ingredients are not going to be easy to found but I will try.
My girlfriend and me really love mexican food. We use to eat fajitas, burritos, nachos and quesadillas. She always wants guacamole for dinner... I'm in charge of the kitchen... Laughing
By the way, guys: do you see my new kitten in zombi.blogia? She is in the last entry: Isolda, the dead reckoning...
Laughing Laughing Laughing
I love her.
:O.:
She's only two months old.
Very Happy

She's gorgeous, is she used like a canary in a mine except she can smell out zombies or if the girlfriend has hidden guacamole under the settee Laughing
