Zombie fact of the day

The whole "brains...braaaaaiiinnnns" thing was started thanks to the team behind Return of the Living Dead who decided the zombie would be better if it had an unquenchable desire for human brains. Thanks to the popularity of this film and shows like The Simpsons jumping on with this version it's one of the most popular phrases used in conjunction with zombies in popular culture. However, very few films picked up on it, instead prefering the good old fashioned cannibalism George Romero used in his phenomenal film series.

Weekend bonus...Do you know how many of these Shepard Fairey/Obama-Hope posters there are floating around the net with a zombie and the phrase 'Brains' underneath? Hundreds. Seriously, it's insane.


  1. I just googled those posters after reading this. I can't believe how many there are!

  2. I know! I'm not sure exactly what it is about this poster that speaks so strongly to zombie fans but it is everywhere!
