From AFI: horror ah ah...begins with zombie movie etiquette

HORROR: HA-HA By JON KORN, FPS Kodak Connect/Associate Programmer for AFI Online dailies Before the film begins... I'd like to get something off my chest regarding zombie movie behavior etiquette: If you happen to be one of a handful of survivors on the run from relentless zombie attacks AND you happen to get bitten during an unfortunate zombie skirmish. Do everyone a favor -- just admit it. Yes, it's awkward and yes, they will have to shoot you in the head (have to kill the brain, after ...

Girls On The Run by SHANNON DUNN for AFI oline Dailies When Dorothy admitted to Toto they weren't in Kansas anymore, she knew quite certainly she was in for a bumpy ride. It may be almost 70 years since audiences embraced the Wizard of Oz and that young girl on the run, but little has changed on the cinematic scene when it comes to women - young and old - who face and embrace turmoil to find an inner strength they didn't know they had. From female screenwriters who tell a real-life tale through...
