Dead Island and the upcoming zombie mmo on the Xbox 360 aren’t the only two games in town. Here’s a full preview, detailed and image heavy, for the PC based survival nightmare that is Dead State. (PC Gamer)

For you hippie music loving types who also like undead panic and good food, ZombieStock will take place July 29 through July 31 in Carlton Oregon. (Buy Zombie)

The team that brought us the quirky stop motion Coraline is back at it with their latest film ParaNorman, another stop motion thriller about a young boy who can communicate with the dead and is tasked to save a town from a zombie invasion. (Dread Central)

Here’s a surprisingly detailed news write up of A Plague So Pleasant, a zombie movie currently being filmed in Athens, Georgia. You may remember Georgia as the film state for other great undead works such as The Walking Dead and Zombieland. (Online Athens)

Speaking of detailed write ups, there’s a lot of good history in this article about the remake of Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, and a shocking news update that Danny Elfman (who’s done the music for every one of Burton’s previous works) will score the film. Hey, the dog comes back from the dead. It’s zombie related! Also, I love Frankenweenie and want to see it done like the Nightmare Before Christmas. (Dread Central)
