With the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I think it’s safe to say that zombies are showing up everywhere. Horror, comedy, regency drama, and now a musical biopic of The Beatles. It’s based on a novel by Alan Goldsher called Paul Is Undead and it will chronicle the story of an undead John Lennon as he leaves Liverpool, kills and reanimates a band, and then takes them on tour of terror across Europe and the States. This might sound like a joke but the production team behind it has some credentials after working on Erin Brockovich and Pulp Fiction.
The film will supposedly also feature cameos by Mick Jagger as England’s greatest zombie slayer, Jesus Christ who admits they were bigger than him, and Yoko Ono as an Eighth Level Ninja Lord. I think we can expect her to literally break up the band. Now, if you think that pun is bad, you might want to look away now.
For the rest of you (maybe 3 or 4?), here is a list of five potential Zombie Beatles Hits.
1. “Help! (A Zombie Is Chasing Me)”
2. “All You Need Is Brains”
3. “It Came In Through the Bathroom Window”
4. “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Was Delicious)”
5. “Lucy in a Pie With Almonds”
What do you mean that was terrible? Oh come on now, I thought a couple were pretty clever. OK, OK, I have no shame. But don’t act like you’re not going to make up a few of your own in the comments.
