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

Blend up psychedelia, sleazy exploitation, sexual deviance and zombies (of course) and you get something like the upcoming Someone’s Knocking on the Door. Quiet Earth has details, intriguing trailer is embedded after the jump (Quiet Earth).

The first stills for the political zombie comedy Zombies of Mass Destruction (which will screen at the Los Angeles Film Festival) have emerged. They look decent, and if you head over to Bloody Disgusting, you can see them. (Bloody Disgusting)

If you’ve somehow avoided playing Resident Evil in any of its myriad formats and want to rectify that in classic PSOne style on your PS3 or PSP, good news: It’s coming as a download. (Kotaku)

Swine flu has once again been linked to the zombie apocalypse, this time by preventing Dead Rising 2 from appearing at E3. See, the Japanese government is warning against international travel thanks to this swine flu business and Capcom is taking that seriously. Wimps. (Kotaku)

Finally, a way to combine crosswords and the obsessive love of zombie shooter Left 4 Deadthe official Left 4 Dead crossword. (Left 4 Dead Official Blog)

Barely news, but there’s a new Pontypool one-sheet out. (Bloody Disgusting)

After the jump, the gloriously fucked up and entirely NSFW trailer for Someone’s Knocking at the Door.
