Deadlines: News roundup 5/6/09

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 6 - 2009


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

If you miss the 8-bit days of yore, check out Toxic Sonic Zombie Massacre, a retro-styled zombie-killing in-browser side-scrolling game reminiscent of Double Dragon, only, you know, with zombies. (Twitter @Zombie_Skool)

Enjoy this lovely slide show documenting what happens when zombies do Dallas, as 125 or so walking dead do a zombie, uh, walk for the Texas Frightmare weekend. (Dallas Observer)

If a banshee raised the dead, would those be zombies?  The story page for Damned by Dawn says “malevolent spirits” but they look corporeal enough in the trailer (embedded after the jump), and it’s a slooow news day so I guess we’ll see. (

Another is-it-or-isn’t-it slice of zombie fare is Doghouse, coming to the U.K. on June 12 (and hopefully elsewhere later). This one has a village full of women afflicted with something that turns them into flesh-eating, monstrous freaks. Kind of like 28 Days Later on an estrogen OD, with more claws and teeth. You can judge for yourself if those are she-zombies when you watch the trailer (embedded after the jump). (Quiet Earth)
