A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]gmail.com.

Another slice of classic literature gets an injection of zombies. This time, H.G. Wells’s War of the Worlds becomes War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies courtesy of Eric S. Brown. Hm. I think this idea has officially crossed the line from clever to stupid (it is a fine line…). (Fangoria)

If you have been looking at all the zombie video games coming out and saying, “Yes, but I want a kid-friendly, cartoonish zombie game. You know, for kids!” then you are in luck because a cel-shaded zombie game called Zombie Wranglers is on its way! (Destructoid)

Insane bikini-clad zombie-slayer girl video game turned movie Onechanbara is getting a sequel. It’s to be called Chanbara Beauty THE MOVIE vorteX (what?) and you can find pictures and words about the stars here. Hint: they are hot, Asian and scantily clad. (Kotaku)

World’s best print horror mag Fangoria has a piece on zombie master George A. Romero in its upcoming 30th anniversary issue (lots of other stuff too). (Fangoria)
