The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Summer Adventure Program has really stepped up it’s game this year by offering a zombie science camp for kids to learn just how the undead work, and how to survive their inevitable outbreak. (GoDanRiver.com)

The insane 3D zombie puppet musical Rose is back in pre-production, and the creative team has re-launched the Kickstarter campaign to try and drum up that last little bit of funding needed to finish the project. (Dread Central)

Well the first official new cast member for season two of The Walking Dead has been announced. Pruitt Taylor Vince, who was better known for playing the overweight psychic preacher in Constantine, will be filling the shoes of Otis, the foreman on Hershel’s farm from the comics. (Fangoria)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, check out this awesome behind the scenes video (after the break) of the cast and crew and a lovable Steven Yeun gearing up for another great season. (MTV)

And while we’re dishing out behind the scenes videos here’s the first production clip from the much hyped A Little Bit Zombie. (Dread Central)

Philadelphia residents are pretty pissed about losing a fifty million dollar boost to the economy when World War Z took the film overseas to Scotland. (Mother Nature Network)

In other news, the county of Malta (where most of World War Z is being filmed) is super excited to have a fifty million dollar boost to their economy. Funny how that works… (Times of Malta)

Connecticut Light and Power has shut down the electricity powering a local Ramada Inn over unpaid bills and bounced checks. That really sucks for the crew filming the zombie movie Remains, which is now in their own private zombie apocalypse. (The Day)

After the news that the city of Leicester was unprepared for a zombie invasion based off of public inquiry, the public decided to test the city by staging a mock zombie apocalypse. That’s what you call dedication. (Newslite)

The upcoming Annihilation add on for Call of Duty: Black Ops will have another zombie filled, but celebrity cameo defficient map and multiplayer mission. Personally I think this was a last minute addition to capitalize on the previous expansion. (Dread Central)

Robert Kirkman yet again excites the general public with another awesome interview about the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. Will the famed comic book creator wear the latex of the undead? I hope so, but he’s reluctant. (Buy Zombie)

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.

~Johnathon

ParaNorman, the animated zombie movie from the team that brought us Coraline, just added a few more heavy hitters, as well as an award winning composer, to it’s cast. (Bleeding Cool)

Brad Pitt takes zombies very, very seriously. While filming World War Z, he’s put the wife and kids up in an 18th century fortress just in case a few of those zombie extras turn out to be the real deal. Okay, so maybe it’s just because he’s a rich bastard, but it’s still cool. (Showbiz Spy)

Henry Cho, the lead creator behind the upcoming multiplayer iOS game Zombiehood, answers a few questions about what may end up being a pretty cool game if they get the iPhone’s location services involved. (Australian Gamer)

After the break, check out the trailer for Safe Zone, a game which combines two of my favorite things: the zombie apocalypse and The Oregon Trail. Follow the link in the article to check out the game’s kickstarter campaign if you want to donate a few bucks to the development. (Voodoo Extreme – IGN)

Jason Ozubko dropped us a line this week to let us know that his game Zombie Wasteland Goners is currently in production and they’re looking to drum up some excitement. Goners is an online zombie board game that looks to incorporate all of the aspects of the classic Mafia (the community game where the other players are secretly playing against you, but you don’t know who they are or what their goals may be) style game play with classic zombie survival action. Head over to the site to learn more about it.

Every now and then I come across a trailer that just refuels my faith in the zombie genre.

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)
