The story reported yesterday about Rob Zombie’s lawyers trying to shut down musician/artist Eric Weiss for using the name Zombie! has been happily resolved — Weiss contacted me to let me know Rob Zombie himself called and they worked it out. Rob Zombie, you’re okay by me!

The Zombieland trailer is available from Apple — but no embeds, damn it. The comedy is about two guys (one scared of everything, the other scared of nothing — crazy!) dealing with the zombie apocalypse. (Apple via Shock til You Drop)

A couple of golden-age classic horror flicks coming to DVD October 6. The four-movie set includes The Walking Dead (a great, original zombie/gangster flick I watched a while ago for the Zombie Movie Marathon Month) and Zombies on Broadway (not heard good things, but who knows?) plus two non-zombie flicks Frankenstein-1970 and You’ll Find Out. The set is priced at $26.98. (DVDActive)

Adam Sessler of G4TV weighs in on the Left 4 Dead 2 boycott. It’s video, and I’ve helpfully embedded it after the break. (G4TV via Dread Central)
