The first clip from George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead is out. I’m holding off, because I prefer to see the film whole, but don’t let that stop you if you don’t want to wait — it’s embedded after the break. (Dread Central)

More details on Left 4 Dead 2 are here! This time, it’s the “Dark Carnival” campaign, where you’ll find a clown zombie who can call for backup; a new boss, the Jockey, who can ride a player and steer him away from his group; and other stuff, such as a guitar that can be used as a melee weapon. (Eurogamer)

And here’s another take on the same stuff from Left 4 Dead 2 from our friends at Kotaku. (Kotaku)

Speaking of zombie games, how about a game focused on finding and fortifying a location against the zombie hordes? It’s called Fort Zombie (lame name, I know) and it’s a game I have been waiting for for a long, long time. Don’t screw it up, folks. (Worth Playing)

Sick of remakes yet? Well get sicker, because someone is working on a Plan 9 from Outer Space remake. On the bright side, they’d be hard pressed not to improve on the original. (

In Atlanta the September 12? How about going to a zombie symposium? There’s a presentation, a couple of movie showings and a dance. Sounds fun. (
