The 25 Most Ridiculous Movies With “of The Dead” In The Title
Many of the most-pirated movies aren’t available for legitimate online purchase
“Instead, Judy led me to another picture show in the middle of town, where she was meeting her school pals for a viewing of a giant-ant movie called ‘Them.’ It was my first horror film, and I had no idea of the sucker punches that awaited, including protracted scenes of young boys like me trapped in the sewers of Los Angeles, screaming and crying as they ducked the clacking arachnid mandibles.” Wooley isn’t afraid to admit that he screamed and cried at this 1954 experience. A lot. “Enough to force (my cousin) to haul my bony posterior out of the audience and into the lobby several times during the course of the picture. She got even by explaining to me later that those ants actually lived in caves around our rural home, and they did her bidding. If I gave her the slightest trouble, she told me, I’d be ant chow. I’ve loved horror movies ever since, probably because the ants never got me.” P.C. Cast ‘Jaws’ P.C. Cast is the best-selling author of multiple book series and perhaps best known for her “House of Night” vampire novels set in an alternate-reality version of Tulsa (Cast resides in the far-less-colorful Tulsa, where she co-writes the books with her daughter, Kristin). The latest book in the series, “Revealed,” has just been released. “When I was 15, my brother and I went to see ‘Jaws,’ and the theater was packed, and the only two seats left were in the middle of the front row. This movie scared the bejeezus out of me, up close and personal,” Cast said. “The shark looked real (to me in 1975), and I had not seen the ocean yet, but every pond, lake or swimming pool I got into for decades yes, decades, as embarrassing as that is terrified me. Especially if I was treading water …
16) Nudist Colony of the Dead After the evil Judge Rhinehole shuts down the Sunny Buttocks Nudist Colony, the nudists vow revenge and make a suicide pact in this 1991 flick. Years later, a religious retreat is built over the camp, and of course, the nudists return as zombies to kill the people who condemned them and sing big musical numbers. 17) Juan of the Dead Easily the best film on this list, Juan is a funny and interesting Cuban take on the zombie craze. The normally lazy Juan is transformed by the zombie apocalypse, as he becomes a zombie exterminator he even has a catchphrase: “Juan of the Dead: we kill your loved ones. How can we help you today?” If youve ever wanted to see a movie where people are completely unfazed by the living dead, Juan is your film. 18) Hsien of the Dead Dont care for Shaun, Dave, Dale, or Juan? Then you might like Hsien, although I sincerely doubt it. Called Singapores first zombie movie, Hsien is a mix of Shaun of the Dead and the movies of Stephen Chow, just without any money whatsoever. 19) Lust of the Dead This Japanese film which has several sequels is also called Rape Zombie. Because the zombies rape people, you see. Its about a group of busty girls who band together to fight the horny horde, but you already knew that, didnt you?
Scary story authorities share which movies scared them the most
And many highly-pirated movies have not been available for rental or download. Piracydata.org was created by two tech policy researchers at the Mercatus Center, a libertarian think tank, and by Matt Sherman, a software engineer based in New York. The team’s leader, Jerry Brito, says he got the idea for the site after a hearing in which major content holders criticized Google for failing to do enough to combat piracy. That criticism came despite the fact that Google has taken a number of steps to prevent illegal sharing of copyrighted works. A year ago, Google began automatically demoting search results that are the target of numerous takedown requests by copyright holders. Yet despite that proactive approach, searches for Hollywood blockbusters frequently turn up links to pirate websites. “The MPAA is complaining that Google leads people to infringing links,” Brito argues. “But what’s the alternative?” The movies that are available on file-sharing sites, he says, are “very rarely available for legal acquisition.” Unsurprisingly, MPAA spokesperson Kate Bedingfield disagrees. “Today there are more ways than ever to watch movies and TV shows legally online, and more are constantly being added,” she said in an e-mailed statement. “If a particular film isn’t available for stream or purchase at a given moment, however, it does not justify stealing it from the creators and makers who worked hard to make it.” Brito insists he’s not trying to excuse piracy. But, he argues, “I don’t understand how the industry is making a big show about Google not taking voluntary measures to help with piracy.” Hollywood, he says, could “change its business model to take their own voluntary measures to deal with piracy,” by making movies more readily available through legal online channels.
