Check out some video of John Russo, one of the makers of the original zombie classic Night of the Living Dead, from Fangoria‘s New York Weekend of Horrors, embedded after the break. If that doesn’t fulfill your Russo jones, hit this link for a thirty-minute video containing another segment with him. (Fangoria)
Seems not everyone is happy about the announced Left 4 Dead 2. Nope, some folks are so pissed they are signing petitions and boycotting it. The complaints range from a lack of promised updates to the original and that it’s too soon, to not liking the new music and sunlight-based levels, among other things. On the one hand, I can see where they feel a little cheated since Valve usually does update stuff constantly for free. On the other hand, as a console guy myself, I’m a little more used to these kind of updates and usually willing to pay for them if I like the game. Also, bitching about the music and daylight-based gameplay? Really? (Kotaku)
What if Dante’s inspiration for the Inferno was a medieval zombie outbreak? That’s the premise behind Kim Paffenroth’s Valley of the Dead, and Zombie Command has an interview about it. (Zombie Command)
Mormons. Zombies. Some would argue that there’s no difference (I kid, I kid… Mormons are fine by me and much more polite when I tell them “no thanks” at my front door than the Jehovah’s Witnesses are). Now there’s a zombie movie called The Book of Zombie coming that looks into what the zombie apocalypse looks like, Mormon-style. It asks the question, how do you kill a Mormon zombie? Trailer after the break, official website here. (Bloody Disgusting)
New York gets Dead Snow in theaters June 19, LA on June 26. The rest of us will have to settle for VOD, but bad news abounds: the VOD presentation will be dubbed. Sucktacular. I guess the VOD crowd doesn’t like reading their Nazi zombie movies. So much more the pity, but at least the DVD release will be subbed. (Fangoria)
A few tidbits of news about a couple different movies in this blog: Bubba’s Chili Parlor (trailer after the break) is available on DVD from Amazon (Mad-Cow tainted meat makes zombies) and a few stills from The Undertakers: Road’s End (official website here) about a couple of small-town flunkies who discover an organization guarding a supernatural secret (hint: zombies). (Bloody Disgusting)
We all know that the Boston PD will tell you if zombies are coming, but what about your town? One enterprising reporter endeavored to find out (hint: New Yorkers, you are fucked). (ComicMix)
