Looks like we’ll be getting an animated adaptation of Gil’s All Fright Diner, a story that pits a vampire and werewolf duo against zombies in an apocalyptic battle. DreamWorks is running the show, Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris are set to write, adapting a novel from A. Lee Martinez, and Barry Sonnenfeld is slated to direct. Could be fun, could be retarded. We’ll see. (Bloody Disgusting)

More details emerge about Dead Space 2 in a video interview, which I embedded for you after the break. (Game Informer)

Ireland returns to the zombie well with Portrait of a Zombie, a microbudget film about a Dublin family caught up in the zombie apocalypse — and what happens when one of them turn but they insist on keeping him in the family. There’s a teaser trailer after the break and it looks pretty damn good. (Quiet Earth)

Even Gawker is pondering the question of why we love zombies. The real answer, which they overlook, is that zombies are awesome. (Gawker)

In case of zombies, you could do worse than these “in case of zombies” emergency kits. (A World on Fire)

A few details, including screenshots, from “Desperate Escape,” the next batch of Resident Evil 5 DLC. In summary, Jill Valentine and Josh Stone make a desperate escape from a Tricell facility. (Kotaku)

The Mormon/zombie micro The Book of Zombie is delayed into 2010, and they really need help from an AfterEffects wizard who would like to donate his/her time. (A World on Fire)

I think it’s old news but it’s cropped up a few places recently so I am willing to reiterate — the excellent Pontypool will be available for DVD purchase come January 26, 2010 (there’s images of the cover art at the link, if you want to see what you will be spending your money on. You can already rent it from Blockbuster, by the way, so there’s no need to wait to see it. (Dread Central)
