The fully restored and digitally enhanced version of the Lucio Fulci classic film Zombie will be hitting a pretty large group of theaters in the US and Canada October 21 through 22. (Buy Zombie)

While I know that all of you are die hard fans, if you’ve got any friends just getting into The Walking Dead for season two, here’s a nifty field guide to the series first season that explains the backstory. (FEARnet)

It looks like Zack Snyder is working on a new zombie project with the director of the upcoming prequel The Thing. It will be called Army of the Dead and it’s being billed as one of the most vile zombie movies of all time. Looking forward to the news on this one. (io9)

If you’re looking to spice up your Halloween then you should check out these zombie themed pumpkin carving templates to terrify small children in your neighborhood. (Dread Central)

It’s just been confirmed that Johann Urb will play Leon Kennedy in the new Resident Evil movie. I have no idea who he is, and I’ve never seen a movie he’s been in, but I guess he looks like Leon Kennedy. (Kotaku)

October 8 is World Zombie Day so make sure to see if there’s any good zombie happenings in your hometown. (Examiner)

For those that live in The Walking Dead country (I.E. Atlanta, Georgia) the Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse is back for year two boasting a 100,000 square foot zombie playground. (Dread Central)

It looks like Blake Lively has passed on playing the lead role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I mean seriously, why did she pass? Her last movie was Green Lantern. I know I was bashing on her getting the offer, but really? REALLY? (Filmonic)

Fed-Ex recently did a pretty awesome commercial about the zombie apocalypse. You can check it out after the break, and also check out the cool behind the scenes video that goes with it. (Dread Central)

I figured they’d release them slowly, but apparently all of the new The Walking Dead webisodes are online and available to view. Check them out after the break. While you’re at it, check out these photos from episode one of the new season as well. (Dread Central)

You’ve got to check out this 5K zombie obstacle course that may be coming to your city and see if you’ve REALLY got what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse. It’s time to put your money where your feet are.

After the break, check out the latest trailer for season two of The Walking Dead. The reviews are already coming in for episode one for the new season and they’re saying that it’s going to definitely top the last one. (FEARnet)

There’s some updates and a new video (after the break) for the Left 4 Dead fan film that’s slowly taking the world by storm. I hope they get a kickstarter page and make this movie a reality. (…ology)

It looks like Lionsgate has bought the rights to make the official Dead Island movie. It was only a matter of time, and at least a studio with a focus on horror is getting their hands in the kitchen. (Stuff)

DoubleBear productions is looking for some community help to finish their game Dead State. This will be an unpaid to very low paid job, but it might be good for building a resume. Proceed with caution though. (IGN)

The news leaked today that Sega filed a trademark for Yakuza: Dead Souls which is rumored to be the US release of their zombie apocalypse game Yakuza: Of The End. (The Sixth Axis)

Here’s a veritable crap ton of cast photos from the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. You now have desktop backgrounds to last you through the rest of the year. (Buy Zombie)

The much hyped new zombie revenge comic book Key of Z is set to make it’s debut at New York Comic Con and we’ve got some additional info about the series. (Geeks of Doom)

Also on the radar is the new comic book series The Hidden by 90’s indie comic celebrity Richard Sala, who gives an interview about the upcoming title. (SF Weekly)

These new set photos from World War Z show that the transition from filming in Scotland to London is going quite well, or quite bad, depending on how you look at them. (Daily Mail)

It’s been announced that Oded Fehr, who played a sizable role in the second and third Resident Evil movies, will be returning for the Resident Evil: Retribution. It looks like they’re pulling out all the stops for what will presumably be the last in the series. (Bloody Disgusting)

Today’s Groupon (man I hate that name) is for a much discounted entry into the second annual zomBcon later this year in Seattle. It was pretty epic last year so if you’re going back, or even on the fence, this is the deal for you. It’s TODAY ONLY though, so go check it out after reading today’s news. (Buy Zombie)

So apparently after two or three awesome actresses (including Natalie Portman, the film’s producer) passed on the lead role of Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, they’ve sent a call out to up and coming starlet Blake Lively. While I’m not a huge fan of her body of work, at least the movie is (possibly) back on track. (Bloody Disgusting)

I guess Resident Evil: Retribution is going to feature a lot of flashback scenes, because it’s just been confirmed that Michelle Rodriguez will be reprising her role from the original film. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out this nifty behind the scenes video on how the wardrobe for an undead extra in The Walking Dead comes together. (Buy Zombie)

If you’re in Nashville the weekend of October 8 then you have to check out the annual zombie walk which supports the Second Harvest food bank. It’s a fun event for a good cause. (The Oracle)

This is a really cool map that shows the general layout of zombie related media over the internet spread across the world. Definitely a good resource when z-day finally arrives. (The Guardian)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, we’ve got all the details on a new mysterious cast member, a former Rescue Me alum, who’s not a part of the comic book universe. (Daily Blam)

After the break, check out the trailer for Zombie Apocalypse, which is Ving Rhames’ third film entry as a fighter of the undead horde. (28 Days Later Analysis)

Apparently in medieval times it was customary to shove rocks into the mouths of the dead so that they would not return from the grave. Even back then people knew the zombie problem was indeed, a factual problem. Check out this archeological video after the break and see how they did things in the early ‘700s. (Huffington Post)

If you think your kids throwing a party while you’re out of town is bad, imagine your daughter inviting over a hundred and fifty bloodthirsty zombies over to completely destroy your home. That’s what one aspiring film maker did while she was shooting the indie flick The Dying Breed. (The Star)

After the break, check out an all new trailer for the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. (FEARnet)

Here’s some nice little behind the scenes videos which were captured during the filming of R.I.P.D. (Dread Central)

Even though a month isn’t a long time to wait for the new season of The Walking Dead to start, we’re going to be treated to a six issue webseries focusing on the “bicycle girl” from episode one of the show. It starts October 3 and will be directed by new showrunner Greg Nicotero (Movie Viral)

Brad Pitt spoke to the press over the weekend and denied rumors that he saved an extra’s life on the set of World War Z. He’s still pretty awesome though, so don’t worry. (Entertainment Weekly)

Milla Jovovich might as well be credited as the marketing manager on Resident Evil: Retribution. She’s dropped even more hints and facts as to what the new movie will be about. (Dread Central)

Visceral Studios, the satellite company that brought us Dead Space, has closed the doors of it’s Australia based office. Is this a case of hard times or EA Games cutting the cord of a studio it’s no longer found use for? (Kotaku)

Here is the official poster for season two of The Walking Dead. That is one creepy ass farm which I am very, very excited to see. (Dread Central)

Personally I’m not a fan of the 30 releases that television shows and movies get on DVD and Blu-Ray these days. Thankfully, I haven’t bought season one of The Walking Dead yet though and seeing this clip (after the break) of one of the all new featurettes has me thinking about picking up the new “collectors edition” on Blu Ray. (Dread Central)

SFX magazine is doing a full one shot issue with over one hundred pages dedicated to the undead and what it takes to create them for the screen. It’s not a bad investment for you aspiring horror directors out there. (SFX)

Indie developer Six to Start have started up a kickstarter campaign to get their new app ZOMBIES, RUN! off the ground. It combines the boring activity of running (which is the best thing you can do for yourself if you’re not already doing it, or so I’ve heard) with over 30 zombie missions complete with stories and items to collect during your run in a virtual environment on real streets. It’s pretty awesome guys. (IGN)

Director Marc Forster sits down to discuss some of the political themes behind the film adaptation of World War Z. (Total Film)

Here’s your first look at Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Bacon (looking very bad ass, I must say) alongside a really, really nice car in the upcoming film R.I.P.D. (Dread Central)
