I apologize for the lateness of this missive – I realize I am hopelessly behind the times. But there’s a very real possibility that we have entered a new golden age of horror comedies. (The previous one being 1985 – 1992, a period that gave us “Re-animator,” “Return of the Living Dead,” “Bad Taste,” “Evil Dead II,” “Bride of Re-animator,” and “Dead Alive,” and if you count it, “Gremlins 2” – what heady times those were!)
This latest era naturally began with “Shaun of the Dead,” and may well have ended there, if it weren’t for these two potential gems:
This trailer is for a movie called “Fido,” which can best be described as “Pleasantville” meets “Lassie” but with zombies. That was probably the actual pitch. This is a funny trailer and the early reviews have ranged from highly enthusiastic to generally pleasant.
But the true genius is here:
It’s called “Black Sheep.” And you know what, I’m not going to give it away; just go watch it. For a certain type of dorky individual, this might be the funniest trailer of all time.
