The zombie zeitgeist is in full swing, and NPR has offered its thoughts. Next comes the zombie backlash. You heard it here first. (NPR)

So, supposedly a “leaked” copy of the latest Deadgirl trailer is floating around. Bloody Disgusting has it, they swear it could come down any minute. I don’t know, “leak” is more and more often a euphemism for “viral” meaning the studio thinks you’ll be more excited about it if you think you are doing something naughty. In any case, it’s embedded after the break, and may disappear soon. Possibly. (Bloody Disgusting)

Megan Fox is starring in Jennifer’s Body, and it has been rated R for blood, gore and sexuality (but apparently no nudity). It’s a possibly-zombie movie about a girl killed as part of a Satanic ritual, only to come back possessed by a demon and hungering for human flesh. Why have I decided to lean toward zombie finally (it’s been pinging my radar for a few days now)? Can you say “slow news day”? (Bloody Disgusting)
