A bunch of new info on Left 4 Dead 2 dropped on GameTrailers TV. Watch it here, or wait until next week, when I will be posting a compendium of everything revealed about the game thus far. (

To commemorate George A. Romero becoming “officially” Canadian (guess that means he is a citizen now? he’s lived there for years) he’ll be meeting the zombie walkers at the annual Toronto zombie walk and introducing  a special outdoor screening of the 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead. Later that night, Survival of the Dead premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness program. All that and universal health care, too? Lucky Canadian bastards. (Fangoria)

Some science types went and did the math on whether a zombie apocalypse could really happen and what the odds of survival are. Read a summary here or go for the full PDF report here. (io9)

If you get excited over movie posters or are salivating at every morsel of Zombieland propaganda, happy days are here: the official one sheet has dropped. (Bloody Disgusting)
