Human Sacrifice! Dogs and Cats Living Together! Fulci Pimping Windows 7! Mass Hysteria!





I can’t believe it, but I have a nation filled with witnesses now. The new Windows commercial, broadcast during the most recent episode of the "Family Guy", featured a clip of Lucio Fulci's shark vs. zombie attack from his famous spatterific masterpiece Zombie.

Some dude in the commercial narrates that he likes to watch zombie films on his computer, and now through the power of Windows he can also watch them on his television at the same time.

Is the world more awesome, or has the awesome been co-opted and this is just plain wrong?

I feel confused. Will the new Apple commercial feature scenes from The Beyond? A Fulci iPad app? And how far can this go? Will clips from the New York Ripper be used to sell PAM? “The world may never know.

I was pleasantly surprised by this last night, then proceeded to watch Zombie again.
