Online dating has been embraced by the LGBTQ community, with lesbian individuals being twice as likely to search for love online. But there are still hurdles. Getting together with someone you’ve met on a lesbian dating site can be troubling. Once you sign up to lesbiemates platform, you might meet someone who appears compatible in the chat room. But arranging the ideal activity for your first date can seem tricky. Why not think outside the box? Forget dinner dates or generic lesbian bars. Think zombie films. Watching these high octane action movies can be a terrific way to bond! So grab some popcorn and check out our top five.
World War Z
Zombie apocalypse stories, on the large and small screen, tend to focus on the awful aftermath, with plucky bands of survivors struggling to avoid hordes of infected cannibals. This exhilarating movie, directed by Marc Foster, plunges the viewer straight into the horror as it unfolds, with teeming cities being swiftly transformed into hunting grounds for the deadly undead. Gerry (Brad Pitt) is separated from his family and embarks on a nail-biting mission to help discover the antidote that will halt the alarming rate of infections. Of all the horrific scenes, one that will haunt you is the sight of zombies forming human pyramids, like so many bloodthirsty army ants, as they infiltrate defences.
While most movies featuring armies of flesh-eating zombies take place in urban settings eerily familiar to most of us, this gripping story unfolds in the tranquillity of the Australian outback. The main performers are also people we can instantly empathize with. Andy (Martin Freeman) is more familiar from his breakthrough role in the phenomenally successful UK TV mockumentary The Office. Here is forced to use his wits to save his wife Kay (Susie Porter) and their baby as they avoid people turned into monsters by a virus. Andy has a whimsical way of looking at things, but this almost casual attitude is cast in stark relief with the life and death situations they face, leading him to eventually question the whole meaning of life. Deeper than your average undead bloodfest, this is highly recommended.
Zombieland: Double Tap
A sequel to the marvelous post-apocalyptic feature Zombieland, this reunites the cast fizzing with chemistry: Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). Harrelson himself stated he had never wanted to film a sequel as badly as he did after completing the 2009 original. With new characters, including Zoey Deutch as a spectacularly ‘dumb blonde,’ looking ill-equipped to even survive the pre-apocalyptic world, Nevada (Rosario Dawson), as the owner of an Elvis-themed motel, Albuquerque (Luke Wilson), a counterfoil to Tallahassee, and a cameo by Bill Murray as himself, this is gory but tremendous fun from start to finish.
Arnold Schwarzenegger gained his Hollywood A-list status in a series of macho performances in the 80s, including the Conan the Barbarian series, and the Terminator films. Here is flexes his thespian muscles, moving far away from the all-action hero to play a dogged survivor in a zombie-infested world. After he receives a phone call from his distraught daughter that she has been bitten, a race against time begins to reach her before she succumbs to the horrible virus.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Based on a parody novel of Jane Austen’s classic 19th-century romantic novel Pride and Prejudice, this would make a fitting conclusion to your date night, blending horror with laugh-out-loud moments. Although it parodies the original, celebrating its rich language and never resorting to mocking its source material.
