And the summer of Horror…

Zombies, vampires, monsters and many other imaginary creatures are rising up again, like 30 years ago. After a long season of “slasher” films that re-started with “Scream” some time ago, the film industry has decided to put on the road again some super-productions and re-makes of classics, a few new stories that might give us this year nice surprises. What am I talking about? Horror, boys and girls.

The recovered guy in brown tries to talk, he shouts at her and the girl stops without hesitate. She turns around revealing a destroyed face with dark rotten blood dripping from the remaining of what is supposed to be the jaw. There are no lips nor color in her face, just teeth covered in blood and saliva. The face doesn’t have pain, it is full of rage.

Slowly walks the girl in the direction of the gunned officer, who by now shows sadness and pity. The girl accelerates in an attacking action. The gunman aims her head but still doubts whether he shoots at a girl or not…

Pum! A shot destroys the head of the flesh-eating-non-living girl, who falls immobile on the spot, covered in the blood of her own guts and head.

What the fucking shit!!! Continue reading
