The world has long needed an arthouse zombie flick about a zombie art movement that’s only inspired by past artists and at long last it is coming. It’s to be called Isle of the Dead and there’s a Bryan Adams zombie singalong, so my life is pretty much complete. Details here. (New York Magazine)

As long as we’re on surreal juxtapositions of zombies, the mainstream and the art world, how about a nice, long feature about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies running in an English-language Abu Dhabi newspaper? (The National)

Yesterday’s news post made note of a boycott of Left 4 Dead 2 by angry fans, today here’s an op-ed dismissing the boycotters as a bunch of whiners. (Cinema Blend)

In other gaming news, there’s a preview for PSP zombie-tossing game Undead Knights. (Kotaku)

Have a gander at this synopsis: “The year is…’80s future’. The world is in shambles. A bitter and desolate place. The zombie apocalypse has been devouring the world for nearly 7 years. Now, the powers that be think the suffering should end – so the ultimate weapon is sent to earth. The Zombie Christ.” It’s called The Zombie Christ and it’s a tribute to the experience of watching shitty movies on VHS tapes back in the day. A few more details can be had here and the trailer is embedded after the break. (Quiet Earth)

Have you heard of Edges of Darkness? Me neither! It’s some kind of anthology horror series set against a zombie apocalypse. It’s hit the UK and now it is headed to Japan. There’s a trailer embedded after the break. (Dread Central)

Horror-Movies.ca have a small gallery of stills from Deader Country, another indie zombie movie. This one is about an alien-human hybrid zombie and some kids who find it.  (Horror-Movies.ca)

Another trailer for Doghouse? Really? This one is unrated (and embedded after the break, naturally), but for fuck’s sake, let’s just have the movie already… (yeah, I know, June 12 in UK) (Horror-Movies.ca)

I think I mentioned before that I am over the whole “add zombies to classic lit” mashup subgenre, so pardon my yawn at Romeo and Juliet vs. The Living Dead. Feel free to get excited if you aren’t similarly jaded, I won’t hold it against you. (Zombie Command)

  1. […] just days ago I was talking about a new movie coming out called The Zombie Christ (because it was just the other day) and now here’s another, unconnected movie called Corpus Delecti: The Passion of the Zombie […]
