Deadlines: News roundup 5/5/09

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 5 - 2009


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

The Wii is getting a rail-shooter version of the space-zombie shooter Dead Space called Dead Space Extraction. I haven’t played the original, despite mostly positive buzz, so I don’t know if I should be excited or not. (Dread Central)

Speaking of positive buzz and Dead Space, word is that the first game sold 1.4 million copies across all platforms. Not too shabby for  a new IP released during a serious recession, eh? (Gamespot)

If you can’t make it to the May 18 screening of the Corbin Bernsen directed, Bill Moseley starring, bio-terror zombie opus Dead Air, you can still catch it on June 6 at the New York Fangoria Weekend of Horror. Or just wait for it to come to your local theater/Blockbuster. Whatever. (Dread Central)

The festival hit Deadgirl, about two dudes that find a zombie hottie chained up in the basement of an old mental hospital and what happens when one decides to get his freak on with her, is coming to DVD September 14 via Dark Sky Films. (Fangoria)

There’s a new trailer for Rec 2 out. You don’t have to speak Spanish to get this but you will have to click off site (no embeds, sorry).

    I am not much of a gamer, even if the games are about zombies and mayhem.
    I have been trying to find a copy of Rec for you, but so far, no luck. I am not giving up though, I may know a couple other places to look.
    I am looking forward to Rec 2. I liked the 1st one much better than Quarantine.

  2. Dead Space is an incredible, creepy game. I just wish EA had done their homework a little better and not gone with a title I’d been using since 2004 for a PnP sci-fi horror RPG in development. I’m rather annoyed/frustrated/angry(?) about that.

    @Biddie: Did you watch that trailer? There isn’t much to it, but it looks good nonetheless.

    @ Raven: Suckage on getting your name ganked. And you know if you ever go ahead with your name they’ll try to sue you into oblivion.

  4. Yeah, I suspect so. (Also, 2000, not 04…I love writing when distracted. Bleh.)
