The final Spanish trailer for REC 2 is out. And embedded after the break for your enjoyment. (Bloody Disgusting)

There’s some info on the 1985 zombie classic Re-Animator in this long interview with director Stuart Gordon. (Fangoria)

If you’re headed to Universal Studios Hollywood this October, you are in for a serious zombie treat – an elaborate zombie-rich “scare zone” called “The Containment Zone” is set for a 16 night run beginning October 2. (Bloody Disgusting)

If you’re going to the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle this weekend, you might get lucky and get into the Resident Evil 5 PC launch party, with the fictional Tricell Corporation. (Kotaku)

Zombies and malls go together like chips and salsa, so it’s no surprise that the seventeen-minute short film Zombies and Cigarettes, set in a mall and chock-full of undead, looks pretty cool. Trailer after the break, additional footage at the link. Oh, and Spain? Keep up the kick-ass zombie work. (Quiet Earth)

The upcoming zombie apocalypse film Deadlands 2: Trapped is being released on the dead format of HD-DVD. Except now I guess that means the format is undead, which is strangely appropriate. Look for a review soon, I’m looking at the screener sitting on top of my stack of “to watch” material. (
