‘Honest Trailers – World War Z’


‘Honest Trailers – World War Z’

It’s a really funny video, and like most of the ones they do, it pretty much nails the film’s greatest weaknesses: It’s nothing like the book, it’s full of unlikely coincidences, Brad Pitt’s Jerry is [...]

World War Z? Wait and See.

Does that mean it’s going to be a bad [...]

But I saw something unusual on Facebook a few nights ago: an editor decrying the amount of zombie novels in his slush pile.
