What Do We Want? Brains! | Film | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

What Do We Want? Brains!

When do we want them? Brains!

On the coattails of the release of what could be the biggest budget Hollywood-saturated zombie flick of all time (who better than a scruffy Brad Pitt to solve the world's infectious crisis?), and the unbridled success of AMC's zombie-centric drama-filled "The Walking Dead," here are a few lighter love letters to zombies, each equally filled with skull-smashing, flesh-biting fun! You'll laugh! You'll vomit! And you'll leave starving for brains!

Cabin in the Woods

Joss Whedon's B-terror masterpiece isn't just a film about zombies; it has just about every evil tacky villain and terrible creature covered, "everything you've ever dreaded was under your bed but told yourself couldn't be by the light of day" (a quote from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, another Whedon classic). Meet the Buckners, a family of torture obsessed hillbilly zombies that refuse to die, mostly because they've already died!

Dead Snow

What's more terrifying than a zombie? A Nazi zombie. Duh! As in all B-horror flicks, some drunken teenagers (in this case they're Swedish) make their way into the woods on a backpacking adventure, which immediately goes horribly, brain munchingly wrong. The gore in this comedy/puke-fest is especially stomach-turning, (ever seen anyone use their intestines as rope?) and especially vibrant because all of the flesh eating takes place in the pristine, white Scandinavian snow. Did I mention these zombies are frozen Nazis?
