This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be,and had a very good buildup, and story plot.

“The Stepfather” mostly focused on David Harris who is a serial killer that preys on divorced women and their families.He apparently looks for families that he can be apart of,without them finding out about his secret of being a serial murderer,but somehow the secret seems to always reveal itself ,and he has to kill the family to clear his trail.

Columbia Pictures released their new comedy / horror movie, “Zombieland” this weekend, which stars : Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin. I just got done watching it,and it was pretty funny for the most part.

Woody Harrelson was hilarious as Tallahasse who was the ultra tough zombie killing slugger. Jesse Eisenberg did a good job making up the other half of the comedic duo,as Columbus who is the sort of the awkward nerd type guy. Bill Murray also had funny cameo appearance in the film.

“Zombieland” focused around Columbus and Tallahasse and their little journey in a world that is now totally made up of zombies. Columbus starts out, alone and gives us his rule list of how to survive in “Zombieland.”

After losing his car in a zombie attack, Columbus meets up with Tallahasse,which started off as an intense stare-down,as noone can be trusted in “Zombieland.” Read more »
