Time for the first of our lil’ Zombie goodies here at the Litterbox as part of our February 2017 “Zombies On The Rampage!!” Festival. This time out? How about a nifty lil’ South Indian Tamil film… complete and uncut and with perfect English subtitles… the full Zombie Apocalypse short film thriller “Uruvan”.
Our synopsis? “Ordinary guy Vikram finds his routine everyday life torn to shreds when the explosion of a chemical plant lands him smack dab in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse. Can one lone man overcome both his fear and his asthma to rise above the chaos and survive the horror? Does he have the will to fight all odds just to see another day?”
Guess we’ll find out… cause Neko’s not gonna spoil the fun till you get the chance to see it yourself. Then we’ll compare notes in the comments, o’ Gentle Visitors… 😉 Enjoy!! 🙂
Psst! This way for more!
***CRAAAAKLE***!!!CRRRIITZZ!!!!***”…enters for Disease Control in cooperation with local Civil Defense Authorities assure us the Emergency is very real. We repeat: This is not a drill and not a hoax. As reported earlier, unbelievable as it may sound, the bodies of the recently dead have indeed begun to reanimate in growing numbers across wide swaths of the tri-state area. These reanimated corpses are confirmed to be a deadly menace with an unexplained hunger for living flesh and should be avoided at all costs. Repeat… avoided at all costs…*** CRAAAAKLE! CRRRIIITZ!!!*** Stay in your homes… avoid contact with any of the infected and wait for further instructions as they are broadcast. Please stand by. This has been an official Emergency Alert anounc….” ***CRAAAAKLE***!!!CRRRIITZZ!!!!***BUUUZZZZ!!! <<<TRANSMISSION LOST>>>
February is upon us, o’ Gentle Visitors and recent events in the US political situation have convinced me that, yes… believe it or not… pigs can fly. Oh yes… if ever there was a sure sign that “The End Of Days” is soon gonna be upon us, then our recent Presidential election was about the most blatant warning that something terrible is getting ready to happen. Economic collapse… societal implosion… terminal chigger infestation, you just name it… it’s gonna happen. And sooner than later… My personal bet? Well this lil’ lady is absolutely certain that pretty darn soon hungry Zombies will be eager to start nibbling on our noggins in search of tasty brains… 😉
And that can only mean one thing…. It’s time for another Zombie Film Festival Extravaganza here at the ol’ Litterbox so we can all celebrate our mutual descent into the imminent Doomsday in style. We’ll have movie reviews, a shared review with our blogging friend Stephen from “Gweilo Ramblings”, a few short films to share, and plenty of Apocalyptic Catgirl Fun while we await the devastation to come.
Hurry!! Sound the siren!! They’re coming!!
So… if we’re gonna do a proper “End of the World As We Know It” festival this month, then it’s a given that I’m gonna have to do a review of the classic 1951 George Pal film, “When Worlds Collide”. (Psssst! It also lets me do a nostalgic “Lil’ Kitten Classic” Review too at the same time… Gotta love those nifty 2-for-1’s!! 😉 ) This granddaddy of cinema Sci-fi doomsday stories has it all… volcanic disruptions, forest fires, earthquakes, massive tsunamis and floods, along with the pre-apocalyptic breakdown of society right before our earth gets gobbled up by a rampaging alien sun. Yep… you really can’t get anymore “Doomsday” than that…
If you’ve been unlucky enough not to have seen this classic, then our synopsis for it goes as follows: “A dying star hurtles through space on an unavoidable collision course with Earth. The last hope of Earth’s citizens lies in the hands of daredevil pilot Dave Randall and brilliant astronomer Doc Hendron, who will supervise the construction and flight of an interplanetary rocketship that will carry a handful of lucky human survivors to start the race anew on a strange new planet.”
Now this one is a real classic. Schlocky and dated and oh, soooo darn melodramatic, it’s still manages to be a big screen cinematic experience that even today still holds up as great entertainment, at least in a certain goofy movie loving Catgirl’s honest opinion. What? You need convincing? Why then just “Read On” and let this wee Catgirl plead her case and perhaps make it one of your favorite “old movies” too! 😉
Psst! This way for more!
