Alan Ford in Cockneys vs. Zombies

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Widge, I know Day 4 is supposed to be something with ‘Vs.’ in the title, but…Cockneys vs. Zombies? Really?”

Really. Exhibit A: that’s Alan Ford with a machine gun in the picture there. If you’re thinking you recognize him, yes, he was in Lock, Stock and played the hardass antagonist in Snatch.

Previous bits of monsters and other things fighting each other include (but are not limited to) Dracula vs. Frankenstein, Frankenstein Conquers the World, Ninjas vs. Zombies, Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, and then lastly, King Kong vs. Godzilla.
