Zombies and the military go together like chocolate and peanut butter, which makes me favorably inclined toward the upcoming Platoon of the Dead, set for DVD release June 16. If you live in Salem, Oregon, you can catch the world premiere of this micro-budget feature on May 29 at the Northern Lights Theatre Pub. (Fangoria)

The beginning of the end draws nigh, as scientists have discovered a parasitic fly that turns fire ants into zombies. Seriously, you don’t think the army is already trying to weaponize this? (Fort Worth Star Telegram)

Love killing zombies so much you can’t bear to be away from the opportunity even while on the go? Then rejoice at news of the Resident Evil: Degeneration iPhone app! It’s based on the story of the movie it shares a name with (my review of that movie), you shoot zombies in it and it is available now for $7. (Kotaku)

Finally, in tangentially zombie-related news, I am writing about horror movies for Examiner.com. This will include some zombie stuff, obviously, but also non-zombie stuff. So if you were ever reading this blog and saying, “Yes, but what does he think of shark movies? Or slasher flicks?” this is your chance to find out. You can find me by clicking here. And don’t worry, I will always love zombies the best.
