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

The young-adult, post-post-apocalyptic zombie novel The Forest of Hands and Teeth, about a girl who must face some scary truths, has been optioned for a film. Considering the buzz on the novel (which I will be reviewing soon!), this is pretty exciting news. (Publishers Weekly)

Alternative Cinema is having a sale, and one of the titles is a zombie movie called Feeding the Masses. The rest is mostly exploitation and sleaze stuff. (Cinesploitation)

On May 19, an illustrated history of the zombie in pop culture called Zombie Holocaust will be released. (Fangoria)

There’s an exclusive interview with the makers of Invasion of the Not Quite Dead, an indie zombie flick that seeks to raise its funding via the Internet, at Fangoria. (Fangoria)

Can’t get enough on upcoming zombie flicks Pontypool and Dead Snow? Bloody Disgusting has an image gallery of each for you. (Bloody Disgusting)
