Here’s the final part of our epidemic, pandemic, outbreak and end of society as we know it today line up with our final six players. A lot of zombies feature in these films, and whilst that may well be considered purely ‘sci-fi horror’ and far fetched – no one saw our current plight on the horizon either and that may have been considered not possible as well to some, obviously not the conspiracy theorists but hey, you know – so sure – flesh eating, brain consuming zombies – ha ha – never gonna happen …. right?
Mind you reality’s a bit scarier…
Which of these 6 have you seen, which ones would you have included in your line up?
