The mod can be found here. As I myself lack the means to play it, I can't comment on its quality, but if anyone's got a review of it they want to kick our way...we'd love to hear it.

It was a night of terror. Blood all over the streets, people walking in front of cars, stopping traffic...I made a child cry. It was a dream come true.
Check out our pictures! I will update with more pictures as they come in!

Much to report today brain eaters! First off, Geoff over at Revenant Magazine just informed us about the Revenant Film Fest Wrap up!
The 2008 Revenant Film Festival came to a close this past Saturday night in Seattle, WA. We had a killer time with everyone and thank you to all that came out and had a great time with us! It was a long night of films and you were the best of crowds!
Our entire line-up was an amazing mix of indie zombie films from around the world. We featured: The short film ‘Zombie Undead’ from Director Rhys Davies in the UK which is the short film version of an already in production feature length film, The short film ‘Bernie Franklin’ from Directors Travis Von Rotz (who also starred in the production) and Brandon Swanson from Seattle - which picked up Best Short Film, The Feature Film ‘Reel Zombies’ from Directors Mike Masters and David J. Francis from Ontario, Canada – which won Best Feature Film, The feature film ‘Colin’ from Marc Price of the UK - which won the Special Jury Prize, The Feature Film ‘Grave Mistake’ from Shawn Darling of New Mexico – which featured some of the best looking zombies I have seen in a LONG time and garnered quite a few laughs from our crowd, and to finish out the night we featured Andy Davis’ ‘2’ from Portland, Maine – which we hailed as “one of the best indie zombie films in recent history.”
All films and trailers were very well received and the awarded selections were voted on by festival attendees.Thank you to everyone that has helped us to spread the word about our event, we greatly appreciate the support over the years and we look forward to showcasing the future of independent zombie films at the next Revenant Film Festival!
We want to thank Geoff and Revenant for hosting such an awesome film festival!!
In other news, our good friend Kyle Sommers just sent us a website he came across called www.myzombiepinup.com

Youtube user Gia Chan did a speed run of the entire game, if you missed it on Sega and Super Nintendo. The playlist is here.
Check out levels 1-8 rightchere:
So I went to the midnight showing of Quarantine last night. I went into this movie expecting something a little less than the original. When it comes to remakes i.e. The Ring, Its almost safe to assume that it wont be as good as the original. Granted, I enjoyed the Ring.
[REC] has to be one of my favorite zombie films of all time - and I must throw Quarantine in there as an equal.
I know that is pretty ballsy to say, but Quarantine - in my opinion - held its own. It did an excellent job of expanding the plot for American audiences - explaining what the virus is, and why it is so dangerous. The new set of characters also works or me, and the actors do a great job at the development of their characters. Usually, in a movie like this, its the acting that takes you out of it, but I personally was not taken out of the movie by bad acting, although Jennifer Carpenter gets pretty intense at the end. You also get to see the man behind the camera frequently - thus connecting the audience with the camera. Its hard to say which one was scarier. Because I have seen [REC] a bunch of times, I knew what to expect, and at which points to hide my face. But there were a few pleasant surprises that took me off guard. All in all, I thought that Quarantine held its own - something I wasn't expecting. If you have seen [REC], you will like this movie, if you have not seen it, you will love it.
Go see Quarantine!

As you may or may not have heard, next years "Treehouse of Horror" episode will be about the Simpson family turning into zombies after eating bad meat at Krusty Burger. And the best part? they are seeming to take homage to "28 days later" and making them fast and full of rage!
Theres nothing scarier than that, am I right?!
