    'World War Z': Deja Vu, Plus Brad PItt and Zombies

    Brad Pitt chasing zombies should not be boring to watch, especially if you like Brad Pitt, which I do, and zombies, which I'm perfectly OK with.

    'World War Z' Zombies Reflect Pool of National Anxieties

    Vampires have always represented rather specific sources of fear -- sex, blood (especially post-AIDS) and, of course, the loss of one’s immortal soul.
