on quiet and zombies.

i have a new appreciation for zombie movies.
earlier tonight, we lingered outside the theater after “the crazies” ended — my sister, her boyfriend, his roommates, her guy best friend who had driven up from philly just hours before without a rearview mirror. it was the first time i’d ever officially hung out with them all at once and it was nice. one of the roommates had eagerly gotten the whole group together, the smile never leaving his face. his love for zombies was contagious.
we spoke about his absolute favorites — dawn of the dead, zombieland, 28 days, 28 weeks later, and on…
me: what do you love the most about zombie movies ?
him: you really want to know ? okay. there are beautiful scenes in there. i love the landscape, the quiet. the lull before the chaos. that’s what i love the most.
