When Leslie Nielsen passed away over the weekend, most obituaries (rightly) emphasized his work with the Police Squad and Airplane! films. But he was also really good at being terrified of zombies, as evinced by his performance in the 1982 horror film Creepshow (which was directed by George Romero and includes a cameo by Tom Savini!!!).
Here’s a salient clip of Nielsen reacting awesomely to zombies:
Creepshow also features a criminally-underappreciated cake-seeking zombie, who is probably one of my favorite zombies ever:
As I hope is clear, my point, here, is that you should totally watch Creepshow tonight because it’s awesome.
