Deadlines: News roundup 5/18/09

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 18 - 2009


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

A new one-sheet for I Sell the Dead has come out. No new info (although Dread Central is reiterating the August 14 release date, which was denied a while back) but hey, it’s something. (Dread Central)

Come August 25, you can get your bikini-clad zombie-slaying groove on with the Onechanbara: Zombie Bikini Squad movie on DVD. I know it seems like a can’t-miss proposition, but I’ve heard some pretty mixed things about this one. I guess we’ll see. (Nippon Cinema)

As I hear and read more about Pontypool, my interest level and excitement are approaching a level describable only as frantic. The latest goodness is this intriguing interview with the director, Bruce McDonald. (Shock Till You Drop)

Need more reason to get frantic about Pontypool? Well, how about the just-announced sequel, Pontypool Changes? I’m starting to experience my own personal backlash — I mean, at this point, I don’t know if the film can live up to my expectations or not… (Dread Central)

The Left 4 Dead Authoring Tools are now available. That means lucky PC gamers are going to get to fiddle with the awesome zombie-apocalypse trainer Left 4 Dead and make more levels, game variations, etc. Sometime I envy PC gamers. Then I remember I already spend way too much time playing video games. (Left 4 Dead Official Blog)

Finally, if you look to your right you’ll notice a very slight design tweak, and the addition of a poll. Please weigh in on this initial generic poll (what do you think of the site? — a sort of “Hello world!” of polls) and look out for new and exciting poll content to come.
