My Favorite Scenes: Zombieland – Opening Credits

Guys, guys, guys! Hi. I hope you guys are good and I welcome you back to “My Favorite Scenes”, the thing where I share my favorite scenes from movies and tv. And this time we are sharing something that can technically tie in to “The Month of Spooks” even though that wasn’t the original intention. In fact, it kind of did that on accident. A happy accident mind you, but an accident none the less. Still, for this edition of “My Favorite Scenes” we are talking about the very openign credits or opening titles if you’re one of those people of, to the movie “Zombieland”. For those of you who don’t know, “Zombieland” is a 2009 horror-comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson as two survivors in a zombie apocalypse. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend that you do it because it works both as a suspenseful zombie movie and a hilarious comedy. Anyway, opening credits. These are some of the coolest openign credits I have ever seen. First off, the shots of total chaos are gorgeously shot with some very well handled slow motion. Secondly, they are really funny showing the chaos that the zombies create. And third, the sequence is set to “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica, a song (and band) that I absolutely love. So yeah, these openign credits are kind of perfect in my opinion.

One thought on “My Favorite Scenes: Zombieland – Opening Credits

  1. Absolutely agree – this was one of the first gory films I saw at the cinema, and I was absolutely captivated by the opening, not even remotely shocked. People rave about the Bill Murray cameo but I reckon the opening titles are spot on.
