"The Walking Dead" Season 2!

For anyone that was worried about "Walking Dead" only lasting 6 episodes - fear not, for I read this today :)

AMC announced today the renewal of "The Walking Dead" for a 13-episode second season. Since debuting Sunday, October 31, "The Walking Dead" has broken ratings records, with the series reaching more Adults 18-49 than any other show in the history of cable television.

Today's announcement also includes Fox International Channels' (FIC) global renewal for a second season, following record-breaking premiere ratings in 120 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. "The Walking Dead" was the highest-rated original series premiere ever to air on FIC simultaneously worldwide.

"The 'Dead' has spread!" said Charlie Collier, President, AMC. "No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as 'The Walking Dead.' This reaffirms viewers' hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back 'The Dead' again, across the globe."

Booya Grandma.

Zombie Filmmakers Combine Forces

Lost Zombies is a zombie themed social network with the goal of creating a community generated zombie documentary. Lost Zombies follows a fictional time line which begins in February 2007 with a Flu epidemic. The flu virus mutates out of control, eventually causing Zombism. The time line leads to the present day where 75% of the world's population is dead or undead.
Users are able to create a profile on the Lost Zombies website and submit videos, audio, pictures and written accounts that reflect some portion of the Lost Zombies time line. The creators of Lost Zombies intend to compile the user submissions into a single, cohesive, mock documentary.
Lost Zombies received the Best Community Web Site Award and the People’s Choice Award at the 2009 SXSW Web Awards held on March 15, 2009.
Lost Zombies was featured as one of the 25 new faces of independent film by FilmMaker Magazine.

How to Survive the Braindead

Many thanks to Camiele White for writing this entry for us :)


I’ve never come across a film that’s actually made me reconsider an entire food group. But after having experienced the mind fuck that is Dead Alive, I’m actually thinking long and hard about eating any dairy product with the consistency of yogurt.

In preparing this blog, I had to actually step away from the project and get my head wrapped around what it was I just experienced. Having seen Dead Alive (a.k.a. Braindead) when I was a kid, I think I had to unbury some tragically traumatising experience because I couldn’t exactly remember what it was that made me never watch it again. Now, after a decade I’ve come to realise that the film is the most repulsive, hideously gory, and hideously ridiculous film I’d ever seen in my entire life.

The true testament of a brilliant film is one that finely balances the grotesque and the hilarious. Peter Jackson, though he certainly matured as a director (winning Oscars and such), definitely showed the signs of a true genius with the clay work and animation involved in the bloody ridiculousness of Dead Alive. It starts with a trip to Skull Island --a fictional native wasteland full of the most unique beasts of the world. We come across an explorer, straight out of Imperialist Europe, guided by his indigenous tracker and lugging a crate holding, no doubt, one of the many weird and wonderful creatures of the island (we find out later that it was a monkey that was raped by a rabid rat --go figure, huh?). Our illustrious adventurer, in an attempt to throw a little White Power muscle on the half-naked natives, runs away when his tactics of intimidation backfire. Whilst running away (and forgetting his guide, no less), he gets bitten by this raped and rabies ridden monkey. Both the guide and the driver exclaim in the voices of over exaggerated cries of disgust and fear, “You’ve got...THE BITE!!!!”

And that’s where our glorious tale of guts, gore, and romance begins.

Our two lovers, Lionel and Paquita, are ensnared into a disgusting journey of a sickness gone horribly awry. In probably the most disturbing sequence of scenes ever strung together in a film, the audience is bombarded with nothing less than live animal consumption, necrophilia, pornos including mysterious scenes with a donkey and a chambermaid, and bursting pus filled boils into yellow cream filled custards. It’s enough to strain any budding relationship --not surprisingly, Lionel finds the stress of keeping the living death of his mother and three other hapless victims in check too much of a burden to add to his self-suppressed feelings for Paquita. But the brave Latina isn’t deterred by her flame’s sudden “disinterest” in her. She’s ever persistent in ringing him up and knocking on his door until she decides enough is enough and barges into his home (now inhabited by over a hundred guests and a perverted, money hungry uncle).

This rushed and somewhat slipshod summary of the events that occur only serves to set up the most gruesomely entertaining massacre ever captured on film. How does one survive an onslaught of the braindead, so engrained with evil and carnal hunger that even their innards have the ability to reach out and feed? By lawnmower, of course! In what can only be described as a stroke of pure, unadulterated genius, Peter Jackson has our fumbling protagonist literally mow down a horde of the hungry undead. For virtually 20 minutes, the audience is led through chunky body parts, chomping teeth, crunching bone, and blood, blood, BLOOD!!! It’s enough to drive one crazy with laughter or cramping from the amount of vomit you’ve tried to keep from bursting from your pores.

Briandead is ultimately about the tortured and often twisted relationship between mother and son. The apex of the film (and my favourite scene) has Lionel finally confront his overbearing mum --who, as a result of a ridiculous mishap, has been transformed into some sort of evil zombie alien bitch that looks like something left in a toilet after burrito night. Without giving any credence to Lionel’s heroic speech on the rooftop, his mother gurgles “No one can love you like your mother!” Her gigantic belly splits open, revealing insides that in an instant reach out and grab Lionel and envelop him (where else?) in her womb. Whilst toying with the now flailing and helpless Paquita, Lionel experiences a literal rebirth as he bursts through big, ugly Momma’s belly (covered in “afterbirth”) to save the love of his life and leave his house, full of horrid memories, to burn to the ground.

Braindead did for horror what the Beatles did for pop music --make it okay to be what it is. Essentially, horror is a genre that brings together the fears of the audience and exploits them into something that’s utterly ridiculous. Peter Jackson, though moving on to such mature material as The Lord of the Rings, should never look back on his earlier work as anything less than the makings of sheer brilliance. His take on the genre was enough to make me repress some pretty graphic imagery. If that’s not making an impact, I don’t know what is.

Article writer by day, renegade poet by night, Camiele White loves any and everything film. She chases only the original (or incredibly funny) and has been known to talk for hours about subjects that most people just don’t care about. Right now, she gets her jabberjaw jollies writing about Halloween costumes. If you want to give her a buzz, she can be reached at

Asylum Press reanimates zombies for new anthology

"We're calling it Zombie Terrors, an Anthology of the Undead," says Publisher/Creator Frank Forte, "it's a collection of horrific and fantastic stories featuring everyone's favorite brain eaters." Szymon Kudranski (SPAWN) brings us The Barber, a tale of the undead and the Mob. In Creature Converts, by Canadian storyboard and comic artist Craig Wilson, a cat lady's feline friends develop a taste for the flesh. In Feast ( written by Royal McGraw (Batman:Battle for the Cowl, Commissioner Gordon), Illustrated by Adauto Silva ) a gangster's taste for a delicacy becomes his end. In Hate by Doug Williams, a zombie must confront what he's become. Billy George brings us The Undead Templars a tale of the blind dead. Allison written by Myself and illustrated by horror master Tim Vigil, colored by Joe Vigil, a lovesick man tries to resurrect his dead lover with horrifying results. Bond follows a lone survivor in a zombie holocaust (by Euro guys Bartosz Sztybor and Macie Wodz). Grmbghraaaaagh! (by Bartosz Sztybor and Pawel Wojiechowicz) is a tale of zombies trying to escape what they are. Dead of Night by Joie Simmons is a great B&W tale. David Paleo brings Rot Clowns, which is rendered in a great old school brush style. Bunker Buster (Illustrated by Steve Mannion) is a tale of Nazi Scientists trying to engineer zombie super-soldiers. Aaron Rintoul brings When we Disappear, a esoteric tale of zombie armageddon where we track two lovers trying to survive. Other tales by Robert S. Rhine (Girls and Corpses) , Nenad Gucunja, JC Wong, myself and others. Also includes a special preview of the upcoming voodoo/zombie series Undead Evil illustrated by Nenad Gucunja.

AMC's "The Walking Dead" shows immense promise

Hello all - I just got back from a wedding in North Carolia, and Ive been itching to post this....
If you havent heard by now, AMC is currently producing a TV series adaptation of "The Walking Dead", The graphic novel we all know and love.
At first I was skeptical, because the comic is so good. AMC didnt seem like a cable channel that would do the story justice. But then I saw a production still, and everything changed. I couldnt be more happy. I just hope everything else comes out as flawless as this picture

The Walking Dead premieres in October.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Hard Cover

So today is a good day. My Hard Cover copy of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" arrived today, and it is classier than I expected (It has a fabric bookmark!). At first I waited to purchase this book, because I had a stack of zombie books queued up to read. Now the stack has dwindled, and the release of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" on March 2nd persuaded me to finally pick it up. Although most of you probably have already read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", so I assume no one is anxious for a review. Plus I have a few novels that have been sent to me, that I must read first.

Also -

Left 4 Dead 2 is coming to the Mac in April! This is exciting news for people that swear by Macs and PS3's ( me.)

The Illustrations in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Deluxe Edition are AMAZING

Dear iPhone. Stop tempting me.

MMMOOOOAAR zombie apps for the iPhone, and im sure there are dozens more to come.
Zombie Cannon Carnage.

Freeverse website reads:

No one has ever claimed that Zombies are very smart. They are however, very busy. In ZCC! three of these morons crash landed on our lovely little planet. With no other options, a fierce need to feed and a couple of spare circus parts they quickly build a cannon in a brilliant attempt to fire themselves back into space. This plan will never work, but at the very least they can save some hapless and unfortunate humans along the way and then eat their brains.

Using your Zombie Cannon fire Pee-Pee Boy and his cohorts up into the night sky. Use your Jet Pack to rocket through the city avoiding air conditioners, balconies, crane hooks and the pesky Police Helicopter. Fly too high and the military will unleash their F15 armed with Air-to-Zombie missiles. Hit pinball bumpers to up your bonus multiplier, hit multiple objects to crank up your combo bonus and try to find all eleven Signature Impacts for maximum points. If that somehow isn’t enough carnage, you can buy the power to call in Air Strikes on yourself, a chainsaw to wield, TNT crates, Radioactive Barrels and more at the Upgrade-O-Matic vending machine with the points that you have earned along the way.

This game came out on Tuesday, so if if you got an iPhone, you can pick this up now!

Jack Larson: Confessions of a Zombie Hero

So a few months back, I went to visit a friend of mine in L.A.
I had previously seen the documentary "Confessions of a SuperHero" which delves into the lives of Hollywood Blvd. Street people. I recommend you all check the movie out.
Anyways, I went in search of the main character of the movie (superman), and sure enough - there he was! after talking to him for a while, I had my friend take a picture of me with Superman, gave him a $5 and we were on our way.

Jack Larson was gracious enough to paint me a portrait of the picture I sent him of me and Superman - So I thought I would share it with the world.

This painting now sits at my desk at work, reminding me everyday why we run this blog.

Thanks for the AWESOME painting JL!

Turn into a Zombie...on canvas.

Jack Larson has created dozens and dozens of zombie artwork. A good amount of it is custom zombie portraits, so if you want to be "turned" check out his blog and ebay auction site!

On JL's blog, the Dominos thin crust pizza that resembles a zombie face is hilarious. Only a true zombie fan would find such a thing.

We are Undead.

Sorry for the brief Hiatus friends. Talk about hitting the ground running in 2010!
So Happy New Year to all. Whats going on in the zombie world these days?

Ill start with some very sad news. Many of you may of heard that Author Z.A. Recht passed away in December. This saddens me very much. I really enjoy the MorningStar saga, and was looking froward for him to complete the final book. "Plauge of The Dead" and "Thunder and Ashes" are that much more special to me. He certainly will be missed.

On behalf of all of us here. We Salute you Mr. Recht.


On a brighter note, J.L. Bourne is done writing and editing the 2nd installment of "Day by Day Armageddon". It is currently going through the layout and illustration process, so the book is right around the corner! something to be excited about in these sad zombie novel times. :)

Hope everyone is having a good 2010 so far.
