2013 Golden Zombey Nominations

As Year 4 of Zombie Movie Night concludes, the undead continue to be all the rage.  We saw a record number of theatrical releases and/or things people may have actually heard of.  Zombies maintaining a stronghold in the pop culture mainstream is definitely being reflected in the nominations for this year’s Golden Zombeys.  Gone are the days of scouring the globe, looking for any country that might have made an obscure zombie film.  We watched so many domestic releases in the past year that we had to change the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ to just plain Foreign, so that the UK could fill in the blank slots.  It’s true that we are not quite the Razzies yet, but if zombies as a thing keeps growing exponentially, it won’t be long before we’re handing out real awards at a horror festival or something.  As it stands now, there are no physical awards, but if you do happen to win one, stumble upon this blog and choose to accept the award, we will gladly send you a certificate or something nice.  My brother loves creating fancy stuff with his computer.

…You may laugh, but my brother and I have both had comments left by actors  in the films we reviewed within the last year.  That is clearly the first step to becoming legit.

As always, the film doesn’t have to be new to get nominated; we just have to have watched it in the last 12 months.  And now without further ado, here are the nominees for the 2013 Golden Zombeys:
