In honor of Dead Rising 2 coming out, here’s a history of zombies in videogames. It’s not comprehensive, but it’s a decent overview. (GamePro)

In case it slipped your mind, remember that part two of the Left 4 Dead comic The Sacrifice hits today.

The official one-sheet for AMC’s TV adaptation of The Walking Dead has arrived. To no one’s surprise, it’s fucking awesome. (Dread Central)

In a rather inspired idea, MTV had the actors from the latest Resident Evil film tackle the infamously bad lines of dialog from the original game. Hilarity ensues. The video is embedded below for you. (MTV Multiplayer)

How do you promote Resident Evil: Afterlife in Spain? With a big-ass billboard and a street full of fake zombie arms. There’s some video of the action embedded below. (Kotaku)

There’s also a brand-new super short TV promo spot for AMC’s The Walking Dead. You’ll find it embedded below.

Here’s a short feature on Andrew Lincoln and how he got the Walking Dead role of Rick Grimes. (Variety)

There’s a pretty shoddy looking trailer for a mutant biker vs zombie movie called El Brazo Grande vs the Living Dead embedded below. Think Troma, but cheaper looking. The fact that they had no idea how to shoot or edit a trailer makes me leery of the finished product, but maybe it will flip your skirts. (Buy Zombie)

Even worse (maybe) is the new trailer for Big Tits Zombie 3D. Man, does it ever look shitty! Kind of intentionally so, but I think that makes it worse, not better. The traler is non-embeddable, so you’ll have to click away to see it. (Dread Central)

Author Carnell (just the one name, like Madonna) has a near-future post-apocalyptic zombie gladiatorial combat novel coming out called No Flesh Shall Be Spared. (Dread Central)

A trailer had popped up online for a weird looking faux-arty zombie film called The Defiled. It’s got lots of bad makeup, a really cheesy B&W/silver filter and a David Lynch wannabe vibe, plus lots of self-congratulatory accolades and warnings and the longest/stupidest studio credits sequence of all time. You can see it embedded below.  (Quiet Earth)

The Evil Dead-inspired walking dead/banshee film Damned by Dawn is coming to DVD and Blu-ray November 9. (Bloody Disgusting)

That new Italian zombie film Eaters gets more promo material, in the form of a one-sheet and a new image. (Dread Central)

There are three brief TV spots for AMC’s The Walking Dead. Only one is remotely worth sitting through the obnoxious commercials that precedes them; I’ve helpfully embedded that one below. (Dread Central)

There’s a whole load of hi-res shots of Resident Evil: Apocalypse to look at! Don’t forget, it starts Friday. (Bloody Disgusting)

Next February 5, the plan is for Zombie Apocalypse: Redemption (sequel to Zombie Apocalypse, reviewed here) to get its Michigan (and possibly world?) premiere at the Ionia Horror Film Fest in Ionia, Michigan (that links to the home page, where the article currently is, but there’s no permalink, so it may not be up for long). Word is, Fred Williamson is starring, which is news to me! (Phoenix EV)

Chicago gets a zombie fest to benefit wounded soldiers this September 25. Bands, makeup contest and more! (Buy Zombie)

In a dangerous yet fairly awesome publicity stunt, the mad scientists over at Harcos Labs (maker of Zombie Blood energy potion) filled an intersection with folks in zombie makeup, then deliberately ran a red light to get a one-of-a-kind photo from the red-light camera.

If killing zombies with your guitar controller in Rock of the Dead isn’t abstract enough, how about using your drum controller to kill zombies in the upcoming Drumskulls? There’s some video of the game being demoed embedded below for you. (Kotaku)
