After a whole long period of hearing nothing, details on the Nazi zombie epic The 4th Reich are emerging. It’s about a last-ditch attempt to create unkillable super soldiers, which is officially the least original premise ever for a Nazi zombie movie. Better news is Tom Savini is already cast, and his scenery chewing is always fun. Get a more detailed synopsis and some more cast info here. (Dread Central)

The recently released  and brilliantly/moronically titled top-down shooting zombie game I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1es!!!1 is just … wow. Trailer after the break. Kick-ass theme song, dude. And it only costs a dollar on Xbox Live Arcade’s Indie Games section. (Kotaku)

Speaking of top-down zombie shooters, PlayStation 3 folks have one coming called Dead Nation. There’s a trailer on that one after the break, too. (Zombie Command)

Sick of zombie games yet? How about a zombie tycoon game, where you play the part of a mad scientist using the undead to take over the world. Naturally, it’s called Zombie Tycoon. Duh. It’s headed for the PSP minis platform. (Zombie Command)

A disturbed teen claiming to be a zombie stabbed three siblings in the Bronx. Dude, you are taking all of the fun out of zombies. (1010 Wins)

How about another production diary for upcoming zombie flick The Gatekeeper? (Fangoria)

New release date for Resident Evil: Afterlife, the upcoming fourth installment of the Resident Evil franchise: August 27, 2010. See you this time next year, Milla! (

In other Resident Evil news, yet another preview of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles for Wii. This one reveals the camera is less shaky. So. Fascinating. (Kotaku)

The avian-flu zombie movie Virus Undead is being retitled The Beast Within and released November 3. Haven’t heard anything good about this one — one person told me it was the most boring movie he’d ever seen. I’ll try to lay hands on a copy and tell you before November 3 rolls around. (Dread Central)
