[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

Happy New Year everyone!

We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2011 than to open with another Blu-ray Monday competition and this week we are giving away a copy of the explosive Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Filled with spectacular action sequences and fantastic production design this latest installment of the videogame-based tale sees Alice (Milla Jovovich) battle against a zombie ravaged world, in her quest to rescue survivors of the T-virus outbreak and uncover more secrets about the Umbrella Corporation.

As usual with Blu-ray Monday, you have two chances to win. For your first entry, simply retweet the following post on Twitter: Tweet this

Then for a second entry, leave a comment of this post to the following question:

Horror fans around the world continue to be fascinated with apocalyptic zombie-infested worlds, leading a whole host of directors to tackle the genre in their own unique ways. From golden oldies like George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead to more recent offerings such as Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later and Edgar Wright’s hilarious parody Shaun of the Dead. It seems the undead have been keeping us entertained for years, so if you had to choose your favourite zombie movie, what would it be and why?

    I loved “Zombieland” because it made me laugh, plus Bill Murray was in it. You can’t go wrong if you put Bill Murray in your movie.

    It’s a common answer, but I would have to go with Shaun of the Dead. I love both zombie and comedy movies and it combines both into one fantastic feature.

    My favorite movie has been Resident Evil..the first one. That movie started me off on loving horror movies, zombie ones in particular.

  12. 12 arctic00 January 9, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    I vote for Zombieland because it provides another example of Mark Zuckerberg being unsocial. Strang that the guy, who started the biggest social network, is not very sociable. Plus, the movie has Emma Stone and Woody Harrelson shooting and dicing lots of zombies.

  13. 13 Yvonne P January 9, 2011 at 1:42 pm

    @StarrMagenta

    Its not a movie but the recent series of The Walking Dead was brilliant. My favourite movie though has to be Dead Set – to me it beats all the others hands down.

    (I must stop calling The Walking Dead – Walking The Dead, c’mon zombie, time for your walk!)

    Shaun of the Dead, just a funny flick!!

    Really close call between 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead. I love how English they are. Brilliant.

    Got to support local films right?

    I love all the above mentioned classic zombie movies. My recent favorite zombie movie is Zombieland since they make fun of how stupid zombies are. Surprisingly they are still quick! Can’t wait to see if Bill Murray becomes a zombie in part 2. Thanks @sajak551

  21. 21 Alex Beaven January 8, 2011 at 12:04 am

    I love Dawn Of The Dead & the classic shopping mall scene as the music plays on the tannoy . It shows zombies bumping into one another as they go around doing their everyday lives.Acting like they would if still alive.

  22. 22 Dusty B January 6, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    I have not seen this yet. I think it’s a guy thing because my guys are pretty damn excited about it!

  23. 23 Brad C. January 6, 2011 at 7:52 pm

    The Indie movie “DEAD GIRL” is my favorite.

    As nasty, and vulgar as the content of the movie is it still gives a new perspective of the zombie movie genre. It’s always nice to see new zombie movies that take a chance, and stray away from the norm that most of them go for. The movie even has a satisfying ending with a twist at the very end. Another plus for me was the reversible cover that came with the DVD. I know that’s probably a minute detail, but I thought it was a neat little addition.

    Oh I’ve seen so many zombie movies but if I had to choose it would be the original Resident Evil film, the zombie dogs, the hive etc, very scary and keeps you gripped till the end

    Shaun of the Dead…just well made.

  28. 28 Josh January 6, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I would have to say Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies of all-time!!

    Thanks!

  29. 29 @ccboobooy January 6, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Zack Synder’s Dawn of the Dead. I loved all of Romero’s classics, but this was such a fresh update to the genre.

  30. 30 kelly handlovitch January 6, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    @kellyrella691 I love Zombieland. I love the stpes to survive a zombie apocolypse like “the double tap”. Woody is so funny in this movie. Give the man a twinkie already!

  31. 31 Tomas Becks January 6, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    Shaun of the Dead, definately! I’ve watched it sober, drunk, high, down, with and without sound, alone, with friends, with pets, at afterparties and before going to a party. The film is absolutely brilliant on many levels!

    ‘You got red on you…’

  32. 32 Stuart O'Connor January 6, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    My favourite zombie flick is the original Dawn of the Dead, you can’t beat it. Comedy wise it’s Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland but the ultimate is Dawn of the Dead.

    @punkee_stu

  33. 33 Cort K January 6, 2011 at 9:36 am

    My favorite is the remake of Dawn Of The Dead by Bryan Singer. I just love the opening scene in a suburban neighborhood. I had nightmares of that first scene growing up so when I saw it I was like COOL!

  34. 34 Allyn Pruitt January 5, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Shaun of the Dead is my favorite…have watched it at least 7 times. @allycatstoo

    28 Days Later

    Because not only does it offer us gory Infected action, it’s main focus is on the three survivors and it’s much more of a character-driven piece than any other zombie-like film I’ve ever seen. The handheld cameras literally draw us into their world and show us how gritty and hopeless it is. And also the Infected showcase the rising amount of violence in the UK and how many people fall in line with it without question, whether it be to fit in, or out of fear.

  37. 37 KD January 5, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    28 days later because it was a different take on the same old thing… So used to them all being the same or similar, 28 days later seemed to twist it just enough to actually qualify as new material.

  38. 38 Jenny January 5, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Shaun of the Dead! Hilarious!

  39. 39 Michael Sajkowicz January 5, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    Picking a favorite zombie film is a little bit like trying to shoot a fast zombie in the head – you’re aiming at a quickly moving target. Some obvious choices are among the usual suspects – Dawn of the Dead (both 1978 and 2004 versions), NOTLD, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead, Resident Evil… the list goes on.

    In the end, I put my final vote toward Re-Animator, the low-budget cult film that earned both its horror bona fides and its critical acclaim. Its a gory, creepy sensation with a great performance by Jeffrey Combs. A zombie film must-see.

    I love Night of the Living Dead, it’s just the best classic. They just really don’t make movies the way he did.

    @sailorsprincess

  45. 45 Lizzi January 5, 2011 at 5:38 pm

    Zombieland: it was sickening and hilarious at the same time. Loved what they did with the text on screen and the Bill Murray bit cracked us up. Brilliant!

    sorry forgot my twitter name, it is @bloomingfox

  47. 47 Kirsty Fox January 5, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    It is hard for me to choose between Zombieland or Shaun of the Dead, but I think I would have to go for Shaun of the Dead, because it brought a new meaning to zombie films, it showed that they could make you jump and be gruesome but with some wicked humour thrown in!

    Favorite Zombie movie would have to be Re-Animator because it was my first exposure to this amazing genre. Although, it freaked me out a bit I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    I’d still have to go with the Resident Evil movies .. LOVE ‘EM!

    Shaun of the dead. It makes fun of Zombie movies!

  53. 53 ChrisPK January 5, 2011 at 5:41 am

    Hard to pick a favorite, from the more recent entries, “Zombieland” is a definite standout. It felt fresh, packed with great one liners, wonderful cast, ingenious Bill Murray cameo!

    @ DarkPassenger9

  54. 54 Alex January 4, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    I’m also going to go with Shaun of the Dead because it’s such a unique approach to a genre of movies that has already been explored so thoroughly. Thanks! My twitter ID is loook0.

  55. 55 Mel January 4, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    Night of the Living Dead was filmed almost in my backyard, so I have to go with that…. even if I do like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead better. I think zombies go best with a bit of humour, but still have to publicly recognise Mr Romano and the movie that started it all.

    My favorite zombie film is the original George Romero classic, “Night of the Living Dead” (1968). It is my favorite zombie film because it really scared me! when I first saw it on tv for the very first time when I was just 5 years old! (Yeah, my Dad was cool like that). Plus it had a great story, actors and I loved how the film was shot. It was/is the go-to film that helped launch many zombie movies since its debut.

    It has got to be the original Dawn of the Dead – what an absolutely brilliant zombie film! It’s brilliant considering the age of it and what we are used to seeing on our screens these days.

  62. 62 Gayle January 4, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Dawn of the Dead

  63. 63 Lynn Doe January 4, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    I really Enjoyed I Am Legend. Just thought the idea seemed a bit more fresh than the stale Dawn of the Dead films, and all the sequals that were exactly the same.

    Fave zombie movie is Zombieland…. Although it seems made for 3D – I hear a remake is coming in 3D which should be great! 🙂

  66. 66 Rebecca J January 4, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    I would have to say, sorry the obvious, “Night of the living dead!”

    Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later – who else would think of having an infected priest running around trying to eat people?! He filmed some classic shots, loved the petrol station blowing up too!

    Dawn of the Dead is my fav classic zombie movie, following you on twitter @stephmd425

  71. 71 Sxboxer January 4, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Zombie (1979) by Lucio Fulci. Don’t remember too much of the movie itself but the cover of the video haunted me for years.

    It has to be 28 days later, when they start running i still get sweaty palms and start shouting at the TV RUNNN !!! i love it. The sequal is also very good Robert Carlyle makes a terrifying zombie.

  74. 74 Cindy Moore January 4, 2011 at 4:14 pm

  76. 77 Laura Varley January 4, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    My fav, other than the Resi films, is Zombieland. If not purely for “BILL F**KING MURRAY!”

  77. 78 Marvin C. January 4, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    George Romero’s zombie classic Night of the Living Dead was my first experience in the zombie horror genre and was a frightful and pleasant one at that. However my recent favorite would have to be Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later which really reinvented the zombie genre to be modern and much more scarier. I especially like 28 weeks later opening scene, it truly captured the horror that zombies bring to the audience.

  78. 79 buzylizzy January 4, 2011 at 4:06 pm

  79. 80 Beverley January 4, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Shaun of the Dead – so hilariously funny! I couldn’t stop laughing the whole way through and every time I watch it again, I spot something new – and such an unlikely hero!

  80. 81 screengeek January 4, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Shaun of the Dead, just because it’s so idiosyncratically British
