Posted by Johnathon Brock On June - 17 - 2011


Greetings, undead masses! Johnathon reporting in to unveil the latest episode of the Inevitable Zombie Podcast

Now there are several different ways to get the Inevitable Zombie Podcast.

Episode 007 – Zombie Movie Marathon Month: Part 2

Hosts – Cory Casciato and Johnathon Brock

Run Time: 1 Hour 5 Minutes 42 Seconds

Show Notes

Week 2(and a half-ish) of Zombie Movie Marathon Month is complete, and we’re starting to feel the pull of the undead in our daily lives.

So come listen in to our reviews on the movies we’ve watched so far, and make sure to weigh in with any questions or comments for next weeks show.

One final note… This podcast isn’t too graphic, but it is labeled Not Safe For Work. We drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion and talk about some of the more graphic images of shows like The Walking Dead, as well as numerous other grotesque scenes from all forms of zombie media. Just a heads up for those of you listening at your work cubes—wear headphones.

Alright, that’s it, go listen to it and let us know what you think in the comments. Tell us what you’d like to see from us on future shows, make fun of my impressions, or ask some questions for next week’s show.



ZMM 4.0: Zombie Movie Marathon 4.0

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 19 - 2011

Zombie Movie Marathon 4
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since last year’s Zombie Movie Marathon month, but here we are, with June just days away. Due to a lack of time I had considered skipping the marathon this year, until I realized, that’s just crazy talk. So, as it has been the past three years, June will be a month of undead action: 30 days, 30 movies, countless undead. Let the rejoicing commence.

This year, my Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse co-pilot Johnathon Brock will be joining me. We’ll be watching the same movie, on the same days, sometime even at the same time (maybe). Instead of last year’s daily updates (definitely no time for that), we’ll be doing a once-a-week podcast wrap up of that week’s zombie films. We may also live blog or live tweet some of them, if there’s interest and we can work out the logistics.

We’re also forgoing the themes of the last two years, apart from a general theme of “Johnathon catches up on the classics,” since he’s somehow missed seeing a number of all-time greats (such as the original Dawn of the Dead—for shame, Johnathon, for shame). This will mean a lot of repeats from past years and other, non-marathon viewing times for me, but I’m down with that. A lot of these are, after all, classics, totally worth seeing again. And I’ll also be catching up on some recent stuff that I missed out on (such as Resident Evil: Afterlife—for shame, Cory, for shame). And we’ll be filling in the cracks with stuff that’s available on Netflix Instant Watch, stuff from my voluminous catalog, and stuff recommended by you, our faithful readers. After the break, you can find the list of this year’s movies, both those that we’ve settled on and those still in the “maybe” pile. And please, leave us a comment about what else we should watch this year.

Review: Quarantined

Posted by Johnathon Brock On May - 13 - 2011

Quarantined is a complicated book—it’s definitely not for your average Marvel fanboy who enjoys flipping through the pages. It played out in my head like a classic Romero film with a touch of Danny Boyle thrown in and I had to stop after the first thirty pages to get a feel for what was happening in front of me. There’s a lot of depth to the characters here and often I found myself stopping to yell at them aloud for their decisions throughout the course of the book.

The story centers around a viral outbreak in a small town. A lot of people turn away at that idea because it’s been used so much in the past. Personally I’m a fan of the setting because it’s one of those glorious scenarios that can play out in so many different directions. I mean, you put zombies on a plane or a Greyhound bus and your options are pretty limited, but a small town often opens up into a much larger stage in which its characters can play their part.

Best of TIZA … so far

Posted by Cory Casciato On September - 1 - 2010

Kind of hard to believe, but the site’s been around for just a touch more than eighteen months now. In that time, I’ve amassed more than 600 posts and almost a thousand comments on said posts (thanks for the feedback!), all of which means, if you’re new, or don’t visit the site on a regular basis, you might have missed some cool stuff. And the last thing I would want is for you to miss some cool stuff, especially if it was cool stuff I wrote, so I’ve gone back and compiled a list of the top ten posts on the site since its humble beginnings in February 2009. Without further ado, here are those posts…

Poll: Stuff you like!

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 25 - 2010

Original photo by Clark Mackey

It’s time for poll results. Actually, it’s well past time, because the two open polls have been running for quite a while now — one since last November! Sorry about that — I get busy. Freelance writing isn’t really a terribly lucrative profession — in order to keep the bills paid, I have to work a lot. Anyway, enough about my poor, suffering existence. Let’s talk about zombies! More to the point, let’s talk about what you fine people like best about the zombies and are looking forward to in the zombie realm.

Fashion Zombie: Zombie dreams T

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 26 - 2010

The moment I saw this shirt, I knew it was this week’s Fashion Zombie pick. It’s titled “Every Night I Have the Same Dream” and I love zombie dreams. Plus, it’s a comic, on a shirt! How can you go wrong?

It’s yet another Threadless design, but I assure you, I am not unduly favoring them. They just have a fuckload of awesome shirts. This one is $20, a bit over my preferred price range but I may have to make an exception for reasons of undue awesomeness. There’s more to the story, too — you can see the back of the design below, plus an image of the shirt on a model.

I’m attempting to assemble an all zombie-themed wardrobe. Fashion Zombie is my weekly post detailing the coolest zombie-themed clothes and accessories I can find. Check back every Monday for another look at the hottest zombie apparel.

Review: Doghouse

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 14 - 2010

In director Jake West’s Doghouse, we follow a bunch of loutish men to a tiny, out-of-the-way village, where they hope to carouse and help one of them, Vince, get over his fresh, new divorce. From this not-terribly-zombie-sounding premise, things quickly progress into familiar (for readers of this site, anyway) territory: violent, bloody mayhem explodes within moments of pulling into the town, as they discover that for some reason all the women there have gone insane and are murdering and feeding on the men. Cue Hall and Oates “Man Eater”!

Shaun of the Dead: A love letter

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 7 - 2010

Today’s feature is a guest post from Camiele White, of I neither endorse nor take credit for anything she says here, although I agree that Shaun of the Dead is fucking awesome.

I’ve always been a fan of legitimate zombie flicks. Though I’m a sucker for the classic Romero, I can’t help but get excited when I see a preview for a film with the mindless, brain-hungry undead as the unyielding antagonist. However, as of late, there hasn’t been much in the way of this classic horror genre that has excited me enough to pay $9 and sit in the middle row of a crowded cinema.

And then there was Shaun of the Dead.

ZMMM Dailies: 6/30/2010 – Cemetery Man

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 1 - 2010

Thirty days, thirty movies: done. It all ended last night with Cemetery Man. If you aren’t familiar with the movie, the quickest summary I can give is its Italian title Dellamorte Dellamore, which translates to Death Love. It is a movie about death and love, with lots of zombies. It’s also beautiful (visually and otherwise), funny and damn strange.

I really want to do an in-depth review/critique/analysis of this film in the near future, so I will keep my remarks here brief. First off, if you haven’t seen this movie, put it at the top of your must-see list. Even if you don’t love it (and I think most of you will) it is an important film, both within the zombiesphere and within the larger context of “important” films. Hell, even if you think it is dumb as fuck (and it’s possible, though wrong, to interpret it that way) there is a whole lot of the gorgeous Anna Falchi nude in it (I’ll put a non-revealing nude picture of her below, for those who are curious), and arguably it’s not even gratuitous nudity since it ties closely into the plot.
