Goddamn you Toronto for being so awesome and so far away. The Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness program has been revealed and it includes the new George A. Romero film Survival of the Dead (which is the new, apparently official title) and REC 2. Okay, who wants to fly me to Toronto to cover this? Anyone? (/Film)

And if you want a bunch of stills from the movie, a poster and a press release (including a synopsis!), how about TIFFs page for Survival of the Dead? (TIFF)

In case you forgot, Left 4 Dead 2 in incoming and some more info has been revealed in a new, exclusive preview. In summary: new boss called a Spitter with a ranged, damage-over-time, area-of-effect attack; level-specific “common” infected including “mud men” in the Swamp level; pills and first aid supposedly replaced with adrenaline and ammo packs, which is poorly explained, although adrenaline sounds to make you run faster for a while. There’s more tidbits, but that’s the big stuff. Oh, there are also three clips, one of which is embedded after the break. (GameSpy)

Some intriguing discussion of the role of zombies in fiction, and the books The Way of the Barefoot Zombie (upcoming) and Dawn Over Doomsday by Jasper Bark. (Forbidden Planet International)
