Today’s Groupon (man I hate that name) is for a much discounted entry into the second annual zomBcon later this year in Seattle. It was pretty epic last year so if you’re going back, or even on the fence, this is the deal for you. It’s TODAY ONLY though, so go check it out after reading today’s news. (Buy Zombie)
So apparently after two or three awesome actresses (including Natalie Portman, the film’s producer) passed on the lead role of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, they’ve sent a call out to up and coming starlet Blake Lively. While I’m not a huge fan of her body of work, at least the movie is (possibly) back on track. (Bloody Disgusting)

After the break, check out this nifty behind the scenes video on how the wardrobe for an undead extra in The Walking Dead comes together. (Buy Zombie)
If you’re in Nashville the weekend of October 8 then you have to check out the annual zombie walk which supports the Second Harvest food bank. It’s a fun event for a good cause. (The Oracle)
