  1. Oh I like that, except that I cannot answer any lol
    1- ummm Robocop????
    2- oh gosh
    3- 1254? AD
    4- no clue, do they have to be zombies?
    5- yes!

    Just wanted to leave a comment : – ) Nice questions if only I had a clue! And good luck to those who have the answers, now Go go go …

  2. LOL! As clueless as I am…it’s fun to try!

    1 – Mad Max
    2 – It was, ironicially, based off I am Legend by Richard Matheson
    3- 3978
    4 – Day of the Dead, Zombieland, Survival of the Dead
    5 – YES!

    That was my best shot at it. Great quiz Alesha!

  3. Alright, here goes nothing:

    1. Mad Max
    2. No idea, haven’t actually seen that movie either
    3. 2054
    4. Land of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Island of the Dead
    5. I didn’t either, but that was actually cool that he was blind the whole time and had it memorized from the Braille version!

    1. Author

      Thanks for stopping by, Keith! You got most of them right 😉 Oh, and I haven’t seen #2 either, but now I must!

  4. 1) Mad Max
    2) I Am Legend (1954)
    3) 3978
    4) Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Land of the Dead
    5) No, I thought it was a great twist.

  5. 1. Mad Max
    2. No idea
    3. Aw.. no idea
    4.Book of Eli, GOsh a zombie movie I watched the other day but can’T remember the name, I am legend
    5, No I didn#t know it was Braille. .

    Wow, Alesha. Cool trivia.
    Ok I just peeked up on the cooments and saw the zombie movie: Zombieland…lol

  6. Judge Dredd? “I am the law.”
    I Am Legend
    2114?
    Zombieland, 28 Days Later, Resident Evil Apocalypse
    No, you weren’t. Not only did I not see it, but it was totally inaccurate. Have you seen a braille Bible before? it takes like six feet of book shelf. You can’t carry around a small book that and have the whole Bible in braille. I was disappointed in that movie. It seemed like it had so much wasted potential.

  7. 1. Mad Max
    2. Based on I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
    3. 3978 AD (1968 version) 5021 (2001 version)
    4. Zombieland, World War Z (coming soon), Dawn of the Dead.
    5. Nope didn’t know that, guess I’ll send it back to Netflix.

    1. Author

      Brian! I’m sorry 🙁 I shouldn’t have assumed that we all have seen Book of Eli. *Kicking myself*

  8. 1. Mad Max
    2. I Am Legend
    3. 3978
    4. Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead. :-p
    5. Yes, i was. There was no freakin’ way he was blind the whole time! He didn’t act blind at all. Rip off! 😉

  9. 1. Mad Max for sure!
    2. I am Legend by Richard Matheson
    3. AD 3978
    4. Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Planet Terror
