Dead Set Miniseries

Dead Set is a British miniseries based around a zombie attack during the reality show "Big Brother".
At first I was skeptical about the premise, but after watching the first episode, I am a believer.
It is amazing. There are 5 episodes, and every episode is great!

All episodes can be found on Youtube. Most episodes are split into parts.

Here is episode 1: part 1 of 5
Part 2/5
Part 3/5
Part 4/5
Part 5/5

UPDATE - youtube took these off recently! I will try to get these somewhere somehow, so dont worry!

If you liked 28 days later...youll love this!!!!

World War Z Director

So I saw James Bond: Quantum of Solace yesterday, and it was awesome. What is even better, is that the Director of Bond; Marc Foster, is directing the up and coming World War Z adaptation.
Brad Pitts Production company - Plan B is head of the film, which gives me lots of hope. Because Brad Pitt knows his shit.

World War Z: Movie Details

Max Brooks World War Z is a book im sure most of you know. If you dont, you need to go buy that book right now. It is an excellent piece of zombie work - which is why it is becoming a movie :)
from what I hear so far, this movie will not let us down.
The movie follows a journalist, named Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt?). He travels all around the world conducting interviews with survivors of the zombie outbreak. It feels like this could be a documentary-style film, but from what ive gathered it will be much more than that.
"Aint It Cool News" reported that they have seen the script written by J. Michael Straczynski, and had this to say:

"I love this script. Love every dark, somber, upsetting page of it. This is a horror epic, a serious, sober-minded adult picture waiting to be made, and it's one of the best pieces of screenwriting craft I've encountered in a while."

Although Straczynski's resume doesnt impress me with his long list of babylon 5, and Jake and the Fatman credits - It maybe an impossible feat to ruin such an awesome concept such as World War Z, but it remains to be seen.

This movie is schedualed to be released in 2010

New Zombie Haikus - updated

keishoku shukun sent in these zombie haikus - pretty clever!

Feet raking slowly
Lifeless hands reaching outward
Empty eyes searching

All the time on Earth
Nothing to lose. No boundaries.
Forever hungry

Lifeless shells rotting
Something keeps them moving on
Nothing else matters

Great gnashing of teeth
Tearing. Eating. Never full.
Damnation on Earth

No self worth at all
No identity to bind
They are prisoners

If you got a zombie haiku, send it in, and well post it!

stay hungry out there::.
