UNDERRATED Zombies: Finally, after wasting time with onscreen villains such as Nazis, terrorists and vampires, Hollywood has returned to a common enemy we can all get behind: the walking dead. Between the 2004 classic "Shaun of the Dead" and the gleefully absurd book "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," it's little wonder the tongue-in-cheek carnage of "Zombieland" is a hit. Who can resist a comedy with braaains? For The Record: The printed version of this item referred to the 2004 film as "Sean of the Dead."
