With Halloween tomorrow and horror films seemingly everywhere on television and in theaters, I decided to give away my favorite zombie movie and book this week.
Dead Snow is a Norwegian horror film that mixes Nazi zombies with vacationing medical school students to horrifying and surprising effect.
S.G. Browne's novel Breathers: A Zombie's Lament is an offbeat zombie book, the first-person tale of living as undead (from an otherwise normal young man). In many ways the book does for zombies what does for zombies what Adam Rex's Fat Vampire did for vampires. Diablo Cody will direct the forthcoming film adaptation.
To enter the contest, leave a comment with your favorite monster from books or movies (it doesn't have to be a zombie).
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes (or a $25 Amazon gift certificate if you would prefer):
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight CT Friday evening (November 3rd).
