Want to see Quarantine 2 for free before it hits DVD? Well Fangoria is making that happen, but you’re gonna have to jump through a few hoops and send them an e-mail. (Fangoria)

Neal Wilkinson, one of the minds behind Fancy Dress Outfitters, sent us an e-mail to let us know that they’ve got a nice zombie survival toolkit infographic to promote their upcoming zombie costumes. It’s not really news, but it looks cool and if you asked them nicely they might sell you a print for your wall.

Helen Grace with Left Films also dropped us a line and a link to the trailer for UK fright flick Cowboys and Zombies (or The Dead and the Damned as it will be called in the US) and to let us know it will be out on DVD late July or early August, depending on which side of the pond you live on. Check out the trailer after the break.

OMG NEWS! It’s been a huge news weekend and with the E3 show going on there’s a lot to cover, so I’m going to split things up into a few groups at times. Also all videos, as always, are after the break, just so I don’t have to keep typing it.

There was a ton of good news that came out of the E3 show just these last couple of days.

The Walking Dead has also been tearing up the internet as season two moves into production.

There wasn’t a shortage of movie news this weekend either.

And to wrap things up with a little humor, that awesome CDC article about zombie preparedness (which we reported day one, because Cory is just that awesome) has become so popular that it actually crashed the CDC blog last week. (Your Daily News Fix)

Based off of this news report, it seems like this season of The Walking Dead will be filmed primarily in Georgia just as it was last year. (The Citizen)
