Former Guns N Roses guitarist Slash has started Slasher Films in an effort to be more like Rob Zombie, I guess. One of the first movies in his bullpen is The Other Kingdom which will feature zombie goodness and what I can only hope will be an awesome soundtrack, if Axl Rose doesn’t sue. (Belfast Telegraph)

If you love zombies and have a kid, then these ZOMBIEZOO toys might be right up your alley. Check out the trailer after the break. (Dread Central)

After the break I’ve got a little video that does a good job of explaining the rising phenomenon that is Humans vs Zombies.

I don’t know what to make of this video. It’s some kind of active reality game that uses motion control to put you standing outside of a holding tank full of zombies, locked into some kind of staring contest. I’m assuming it’s a tech demo of some kind, but it looks very cool and I’d love to see a practical application. (Randommization)

Well it looks like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just went back into development hell. Mike White has reportedly stepped off the project due to previous obligations with HBO. I honestly can’t say I’m sad to hear the news as I felt that Mike White wasn’t right to direct the film, but I’m sad that the movie is once again on hiatus. (Deadline)

I stumbled upon this weird little trailer (after the break) for The Zombie Farm, which looks like a cross between horror, mad science, and government conspiracy. You be the judge. (Buy Zombie)

I’ve got some game play footage for Dead Space on the iPhone, and it honestly looks very well done. I’ll probably pick this up at some point. (Kotaku)
