Kick-Ass, condemned in some quarters due to its violence and a ten-year-old girl who curses like a sailor and leaves a trail of dead bodies, is far from the only sci-fi or fantasy film to have created controversy.
We spend quite a bit of time in horror films rooting for people to survive, hoping they'll outsmart the psycho with the knife or outrun the monster or overcome the zombie horde. But sometimes there are those characters that we actively (and happily) root against, those characters so disruptive, so grating, so just plain annoying, that we can't wait to watch them meet their ends.
There will come a time when the dead walk the earth and stroll in front of movie cameras—and when they do, it'll be the makeup artists who'll bring those zombies to life. And who knows? Some of those behind-the-scenes magicians may be discovered on Syfy's Face-Off, the next episode of which puts its contestants through the creating-the-undead ringer.
