On July 24 Deadgirl will come to a handful of theaters in major metropolitan areas, including LA, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Austin and Seattle, forÂ a midnight showing. The movie, about two teenage friends who find a beautiful zombie tied up in the basement of an abandoned mental institution, was well received on the festival circuit. I guess we’ll see if it does as well with general horror audiences. (Bloody Disgusting)
David Wellington (author of future classic Monster Island, reviewed here), Jonathan Maberry (Patient Zero) and Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) will be writing the next iteration of Marvel Zombies. If anything could draw me back to that soap opera, it’s Wellington. (Comic Book Resources)
Got some extra money you want to use to fund a zombie movie? Consider throwing some of it to the makers of The Lawless: Hell on Earth so they can actually make their movie. It’s a movie where zombies have taken over, but people are still the scariest thing around (eh, that’s pretty much every good zombie apocalypse movie). (Quiet Earth)
After the break, see a trailer for Deadlands 2: Trapped (thanks to Horror-Movies.ca for the tip) and the entire short film See the Dead (courtesy of Dread Central) from filmmaker Robert W. Filion.
