Theories of International Politics and Zombies author Daniel Drezner talks at great length about the top secret plans New York has been working on in preparation for the zombie apocalypse. His book and theories are also mentioned elsewhere today. (Foreign Policy, Wall Street Journal)

The Blood Lodge fundraisers have been entertaining to read about thus far, and the newest one is no exception. They’re holding a zombie battle of the bands February 26 at the Beachcomber bar. (News  Transcript)

I don’t get the latest fad that is “Tiger Mothers” but apparently according to this report they’re the perfect parental unit for the inevitable zombie outbreak. (Wired)

Foreign zombie film The Returned is now in pre-production, so let’s hope that works out well for them. (28 Days Later Analysis)

Well it looks like Woody Harrelson has taken one too many bong hits, because according to a recent interview he’s not very interested in a role in Zombieland 2. Apparently he’s “not a sequel guy”. I’d tell him to grow up, but his first name is Woody. (Bloody Disgusting)

This trailer for the upcoming film The Dead Season (after the break) looks pretty good, and well produced, which is always nice when it’s a zombie movie. There’s no release details yet so hopefully they’ll find distribution at a film festival later this year. (Buy Zombie)

This is quite possibly the greatest video game trailer I’ve ever seen. It’s for a new game called Dead Island, and if the promises of drop in multiplayer co-op and stunning visual effects hold true, it will be the greatest video game I’ll ever play. Check out the trailer after the break. (IGN)

    That Dead Island trailer has had me buzzing all day long. It encapsulates everything I love about the genre. Very emotional.

  2. If they can make a game that lives up to that trailer, it will easily be the very best zombie game of all time. Holy shit.

  3. I just cannot believe the title has not been released. if the game is even a 1/10th as good as the trailer, then Dead Island will rock!
