I’m not a fan of horror movies. Let me get that out of the way. Dawn of the Dead. Friday the 13th. Halloween. Saw. Nope, none of those do it for me.
I’m just not a fan at all of the slasher or torture type flicks. Suspense I can do, but horror, no. Which is funny because Stephen King and Dean R. Koontz are two of my favorite authors.
Anyways, for years, my friends tried to get me to read The Walking Dead comic book saying how amazing it is. I stayed clear because, I really couldn’t care less about zombies.
And then I read World War Z by Max Brooks and I was hooked. This one book was so well written and creative, that I suddenly became a mega zombie fan. I devoured the Walking Dead comic books. Got hooked on the TV show, along with Allie. Love films like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland. Good stuff!
I still don’t like slasher flicks, but zombies are A-OK in my book now! And that brings me to latest Netflix show that Allie and I are completely obsessed with: I Zombie!
More suspense than straight up horror/gore, it’s pretty much like a fun CSI type show where one of the main characters just happens to be a really cute blonde, who… uh… happens to be a zombie. But she’s one of them nice zombies!
See, Liv is one of the pasty undead but as long as she’s regularly eating a brain, she’s completely normal and can fake her way through society. So she does a really smart thing and gets a job at the morgue, a veritable brain buffet!
Even cooler than keeping her wits thanks to the brains, Liv gains memories of these victims through various “flashes,” all of which can help her solve crimes.
It’s a totally ridiculous premise for sure. But it works. It’s fun, campy, kooky, a bit bloody and all-around zombirific.
As a “normal” zombie, Liv is pretty disgusted eating brains. So she has to whip up some really unique recipes and douse it all with loads of hot sauce. (It’s the only way she’ll even be able to taste anything.)
So it got me thinking. If I were in her shoes and forced to eat brains to stay almost human, how would I do it? What would I eat? And that’s when I came up with some of the Best Brain Food I could think of. In fact, I pulled together the ultimate I, Zombie Menu!

I really enjoy this show!! I wonder how the “Chili Cheese Brain Fries” are any good? 🙂
I think they should do a full on cook book, every week her new meal ideas are fantastic!
And for movies, have you seen the Resident Evil series?
28 days later?
I am also a Zombie fanatic, Z Nation is also pretty good, it brings something new to the table!
I 1000% agree! It cracks me up what she cooks. And I’ve only seen a handful of episodes so far!
I actually haven’t seen any of those other shows as I’m not a huge zombie fan. I do like Walking Dead but not so sure about the others. World War Z was a fabulous book and a boring, lame movie. I have heard good things about Z Nation.
I love Walking Dead and would be voted by everyone I know to be “least likely to like zombie shows.” I hadn’t heard of this one but have Netflix – need to find it especially when Walking Dead goes on hiatus.
Sounds like you’re like me, Michelle! I never liked ’em until Walking Dead. This one’s definitely got some nastiness in it, but it’s a real quirky, fun show too.
This is awesome, I’m a longtime huge zombie fan. I just recently discovered iZombie and marathoned it. I’m glad your enjoying all things zombie now too! Have a safe and fun Halloween !
Thanks, Raine! Appreciate the comment! Have a super spooky and candy-filled Halloween!
