A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Bookmark the home page or add the RSS feed to your reader for your daily dose of walking dead. Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]

Starz is airing a program called Zombiemania, about the rich history of our favorite undead. Damn, I wish I had Starz, now…  (Trailer embedded after the break!) (Dread Central)

Over at Fangoria, there’s a new column on Zombieland if you haven’t had your fill of Zombieland yet. (Fangoria)

Also, Zombieland won the Audience Award at Sitges, Europe’s largets genre-film event. Good one, Zombieland! (Fangoria)

The final two Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns may have been leaked, if rumors on a Taiwanese website are to be believed. If they turn out to be true, those will be “Hard Rain” (it’s wet there) and “Dead Center” (mall!).  (Kotaku)

And this list of achievements from Left 4 Dead 2 seems to verify those are, indeed, the final two campaigns. It also reveals two new items. You can find the new items in a list after the break, for the very spoiler-sensitive.(

Liberal writer David Sirota explains that the zombie zeitgeist is a side effect of the current political culture. (AlterNet)

There’s a zombie apocalypse map/mode coming to the Champions Online superhero MMORPG and this developer’s chat has a few details about how it works. (ZAM)

New L4D2 items:

  1. Defibrillator (used to revive “dead” teammamtes)
  2. Bile bomb (made from Boomer bile, used to attract the Horde?)
