Zombieland would become Another Day in the Life of Woody Harrelson.

28 Days Later would become England Under Thatcher.

Plan 9 From Outer Space would become just slightly less bad.

Shaun of the Dead would become Spaced.

Land of the Dead would become W.

The Good, the Bad and the Zombies-Clint Eastwood shoots and kills a bunch of desperadoes. They come back to life and eat his brain.

Re: Stories that don't need zombies?

You know what movies could use zombies? Any one of those cheesy "vampires vs werewolves" movies. Underworld? Could use zombies. Twilite? Could DEFINITELY use zombies. True Blood? Zombies (though the way the series is going they could introduce zombies without skipping a beat).

Saw Twilight Friday night. It already has a bunch of zombies in it. They're called "the cast" .

If they really wanted to make an interesting zombie movie, they should film Philip Nutman's novel Wet Work.

All the wannabe-fantasy movies, you know, the ones with the bad costumes and worse plots could use some zombies. Dungeons and dragons or the Eragon-crap!

Very few stories need zombies, but almost every story could be improved by the addition of zombies.

"Stories that don't need zombies" is one of the best thread titles I've ever seen around here.

American Pie doesn't need zombies. I'd hate to see what a ZILF looks like.

I don't know. American Pie - 28 Days Later could be a winner.

On the other hand, Animal House with zombies probably wouldn't have been any different. So, no need for zombies there.

Re: Stories that don't need zombies?

Having a zombie in 'A Weekend At Bernie's' would have completely destroyed the premise.

Wasn't Bernie technically a zombie for brief periods in Weekend At Bernie's 2?
