My husband and I have been catching up on episodes of The Walking Dead
. We are frequent watchers of Zombie movies and other horror movies. In fact, I swear the moment we fell in love
was when we found out we both loved Evil Dead
I never have nightmares after watching scary movies. Well, with the one exception when I was 5
. But now for two nights in a row I have found myself having nightmares.
Not really about Zombies. No, my nightmares have been about lost and/or injured children. Because I'm a mom and if anything is going to scare the crud out of me, it's the thought of something hurting my children.
I have one "rule" when it comes to horror movies/shows/books. Do whatever you want to everyone else but leave the pregnant women, babies and children alone. In fact my husband has felt my wrath several times after convincing me to watch a movie (that he had previously viewed) in which my rule wasn't followed. (I'm also not a fan of "revenge" movies.)
In fact, he convinced me to read the first Walking Dead comic book
and I was pretty mad at him after I finished it. I refused to read any more.
Despite myself, I have been sucked into the show.
Let's just say they keep toying with my emotions and keeping me on the edge of my seat.
Last night was the first night I didn't have the nightmares. Probably because I was up half the night wrestling with an ethical dilemma.
Would it be right/ok to "kill" a Zombie?
Are Zombies people too?
Are Zombies already dead anyway so it doesn't matter if you shoot them?
