Here at Cracked, we're extremely excited for the DVD release of Fido. The more cynical among you have suggested that our excitement stems from an ad campaign currently running on our site advertising the zombie comedy (which the New York Times calls a "tickilishly amusing satire").
To that we say: How dare you imply something so sinister! Not about Cracked, we're used to your vitriol, but about this "strangely wholesome, gently splattery and adorably gory" film. (By the way, that quote was from the Toronto Star and they pretty much hate everything.)
In honor of Fido's hilarious combination of humor and gore, we've collected seven of our finest Halloween Humor articles to get you in the mood for everyone's favorite October Holiday: Fido DVD Release Day on October 23rd.
