After the break, check out a sneak peek at the upcoming mid season premiere of The Walking Dead in February. This is going to be a good year, and The Walking Dead is most definitely a reason for that. (Dread Central)

It looks like Asylum, who have brought us amazing straight to video knock offs like Transmorphers and Alien vs. Hunter, are going to give us what we really want and release Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies on DVD right before Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits theaters this year. I think I’ll save $20 and stick with the zombies. Alright, I’ll see both. (Dread Central)

Speaking of games, there’s a new zombie game based on a childhood classic for those of us about 30 or older. The Men Who Wear Many Hats are working to bring us the Organ Trail, where you try to escape the zombie apocalypse (and hopefully typhoid and broken axles) while en route to a safe destination.
