Zombies + anything = awesome? I think so! That certainly seems to be the case with the recent novel, soon-to-be movie Paul is Undead, which reimagines what the careers of the Beatles would have been like had they been zombies! FirstShowing has the scoop on the plot:
Written as oral history, the book details how Lennon, a zombie guitarist in Liverpool, kills and reanimates McCartney, then does the same with Harrison and Starr. They deliver hits and bloody mayhem across the world, pursued by England’s greatest zombie hunter, Mick Jagger. They also engage in a battle with Eighth Level Ninja Lord Yoko Ono, and snack on the brains of swooning fans.
Oh man. Mick Jagger as a zombie hunter? Yoko Ono as a ninja? It just sounds too cool to be true! But that’s not all: apparently the book features a scene where zombie John meets Jesus…and Jesus agrees that the Beatles are bigger than him! It takes some serious clout to pull off something like that, and I can’t wait to see how it plays out.
With all the zombie-themed books and movies coming out these days, the undead seem to be infiltrating every corner of the pop culture spectrum! And I, for one, couldn’t be happier.
