Re: Zombies as a McGuffin

Sorry I haven't been on here for some time. I have a life outside of the internet that I enjoy greatly. I would argue that Shaun of the Dead has an inner emotional story. Here it is. Shaun and Liz break up. All is lost for Shaun. What is he to do? The McGuffin or the zombie then enters the plot. The...

Re: Zombies as a McGuffin

Re: Zombies as a McGuffin

Zombies as a McGuffin

Thoughts and feelings anyone? I don't see it happening in many writings. Shaun of the Dead can be one exception but I'm sure there can be some argument to that. Personally, I love it when a film script or book or short story makes zombies into a McGuffin.

With your permission I wrote down some critiques: Chapter 1 -the road, had / Take out the comma.

Re: Several must read SCi-fi based Apocalyptic novels

I second The War of The Worlds. H.G. Wells had his stuff together (except for enjoying Stalin, eugenics, etc.).

I'm sorry for anything I did. I won't post on this forum ever again. I'm not welcome here. I wish this could have ended a better way. Anger is not cool and this is all negative, on both ends. Moderators, if you want delete this thread.
