We've officially crawled our way into October, which means we now have 31 days full of ghosts, goblins and wild things to look forward to. Not all the movies opening this month are of the scary variety, though, and you may even stumble across a potential Oscar candidate or two. But since there's so much content to wade through, we're here to single out five films you definitely must see before November rolls around. Check it:
What's It About: Not since Shaun of the Dead have audiences been having this much fun with a zombie comedy. Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg star in this original zombie flick about a group of misfits who beat, bust and blow their way through a world littered with zombies while traveling to an amusement park where they think they'll be safe.
What's the Buzz: Currently running at fresh rating of 88% over on Rotten Tomatoes, the film comes from a first-time director and features some surprising (and hilarious) cameos. Christy Lemire of the Associated Press says, "Zombieland mostly finds that tricky balance of the laugh-out-loud funny and the make-you-jump scary, of deadpan laughs and intense energy."
