The Walking Dead: Compendium One

So, many have heard about this release. It came out last week, and I finally got around to ordering it! "The Walking Dead" is a great comic, so if you havent heard of it - definitely check it out! The Compendium is the first 48 issues, 1088 pages and 5 lbs of pure zombie mayhem. Ive read that it is a limited release (who knows how many times thats actually true) but I had to pick it up just in case. It retails for $60, but i picked it up from an independent seller on barnes and noble for $40.

Remember to always aim for the head.

$70 + Zombies = HOLLYWOOD

British Director Marc Price hit it big at Cannes Film Festival this year with his Zombie flick, "Colin". What separates it from the rest, is that it takes the zombies perspective, which is something that sounds really compelling. I had seen this movie posted on Revenant a while back, but never took the time to look into it. Now its has taken Hollywood by storm. Great Job Marc!!
I think we will be seeing much more of this very soon.

The Best part about the whole thing? The movie cost $70 to make.
Absolutely Brilliant.

Aww Shit...Zombie Ants.

When the respectable National Geographic uses the word "Zombie", you know your in for a good article. Apparently, in South America, female phorid flies are injecting fire ants with their eggs, using a needle appendage. The larva migrates to the ants head, and eats the brain, eventually controlling it to steer the ant away from the colony - to avoid detection and attack. The larva finally decapitates the ant, and squeezes out of the head.

my reaction to this news: NICE.

Zombie American: Glen's Story

This is a fantastic short film I just discovered on FearNet. I think it is a couple of years old, but it is still pretty great. Check out the Zombie American website, too.

Zombified Audio Fiction

This is a sweet throwback to old-school audio-dramas. Darker Projects has a great variety of horroresque stories brought to you in dramatic format. The Byron Chronicles is the series I stumbled upon recently. It is a story combining many characteristics and archetypes of the horror genre, however it kicks off the series with all of our favorites: SEA MONSTERS! Because that makes sense, you know, for this blog.

It's actually about the walking dead.

But really, now, this is a fantastic take on the ORIGINAL zombie! Also, it is funny because the episode is called "The Taint." I couldn't link directly to the story, but it is at the bottom of THIS PAGE.

Look out, "The Taint" is full of zombies.

Immaturely yours,
