Zombies Ate My Neighbors

Here’s some good news that I spotted on my reader this morning (thanks to Geektyrant.com and NerdBastards.com for posting about this). It looks like the classic 90s video game Zombies Ate My Neighbors is in development for a movie. From what I’ve read, so far it has a writer (John Darko), and they’re looking for financiers. Hey, I got ten bucks to chip in! Oh wait… no I don’t…

Okay, I know that most movies based on video games suck, but I can’t help feel a little excited about this. Zombies Ate My Neighbors is my all time favorite video game, and I always felt it never got the attention it deserved. Fuck Mario and Sonic, I’d rather spend my Saturday with Zeke and Julie. Especially Julie… hot sexy 16-bit digital butt running around the screen, while shooting aliens and zombies with a squirt gun… yeah, I really am that lonely and pathetic…

Anyhow, what I always liked most about ZAMN was its retro sci-fi/ horror vibe, with a cartoon style. What I’m really hoping comes out of this is an updated version of the game that will keep those same elements. As far as the movie… well, if it’s better than Street Fighter I’m good (I’m not going to set the bar of my expectations too high).

If you’ve never played the game, you should be publicly flogged here’s a video I found on Youtube that will give you a quick look (This is the SNES version… sounds different than the one I’m use to). Enjoy and let us know what you think.
