The Guardian informs us The Waking Dead (TV) is going to be awesome. Of course, we already knew that, but maybe its regular readership didn’t. (

Did you dig those Star Wars-as-zombie-film posters a while back? Well, creator Matt Busch has a whole site, Hollywood is Dead, dedicated to zombifying pretty much every movie poster you know and love. (Dread Central)

Holy crap, this zombies on TV thing is exploding! Now NBC is in on it, with a spec script for a “fun buddy cop procedural” TV show with zombies called Zombies Vs. Vampires. Bandwagon jumping, much? (Deadline Hollywood)

The first three episodes of Zombrex Dead Rising Sun, the Dead Rising movie, are available for free download via Xbox Live. If you prefer reading about things ot actually watching them, Kotaku has impressions as well. (Kotaku)

They’re working on a prequel film for the videogame Dead Space. Someone named DJ Caruso is directing. (MTV Movies Blog)

Diplomacy. Zombies. Board games. All these disparate elements come together in the new-ish game Diplomacy of the Dead. In it, you play a leader of a region of the world faced with zombiegeddon. As a die-hard nerd who loves me some board games, I’m intrigued. (Critical Gamers)

The utterly crap film Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things is getting a deluxe 25th anniversary DVD release, coming October 19. (Fangoria)

    I hope Zombies vs. Vampires isn’t based on the movie Vampires vs. Zombies.

    Sure, Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things may not be the greatest movie ever, but I’d be hard pressed to think of a movie that filled me with greater joy when the cast was finally eaten by zombies. I just wish the zombies could have barfed them up and eaten them again, and maybe kicked them a few times for good measure.
