The George Romero Media Deathmarch continues. Here’s a list of what’s new today:

  • Cinematical does a good interview, covering Westerns, Romero’s other films and lots of stuff that isn’t covered elsewhere.
  • Brightest Young Things does a decent interview with a few new questions.
  • Vanity Fair does a crappy interview. I think the interviewer was drunk and pissed he had to interview Romero.
  • Finally, you will find a video interview for Sci Fi Wire embedded below. It’s okay, but no new ground.

Want to be a zombie in AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead? Take a vacation to Atlanta in mid-June or early July and your dream could come true. (On Location Vacations)

There’s a new redband trailer for the US theatrical release of REC 2. It reveals some new stuff (possibly a bit too much, as most US trailers tend to) and it makes me even more excited for the movie. See it embedded below. (Bloody Disgusting)

An interview with actor Shawn Roberts, who plays villain Albert Wesker in the upcoming Resident Evil: Afterlife, covers the film’s zombies, shooting in 3D and lots more. (FEARnet)

Zombies, vampires, seances, magical doohickeys and Tom Savini are just some of the goodies in the trailer for The Dead Matter embedded below. There’s more info on its release, too. (Dread Central)

Another day, another George Romero interview. This one may be my favorite, as he reveals what he thinks of 3D, the afterlife and what his zombie apocalypse kit consists of, among many other gems. (Philadelphia Magazine)

If you’re looking to hang that Charlie Adlard (Walking Dead artist) Survival of the Dead poster in your home, your dreams have come true and it will only cost you $30. Also, your dreams will glow in the dark, so there’s that. (Ain’t It Cool News)

Robert Kirkman reveals some good stuff about the AMC adaptation of his Walking Dead series, stuff like there’s no gore limit imposed by the network, Jeffrey DeMunn is playing Dale and the show won’t completely follow the plot of the books. (Ain’t It Cool News)

The next videogame from Gearbox Software, developers of the Borderlands videogame (which had a zombie-based expansion), may be a zombie game. They just registered a trademark for videogames and movies called Z-Day, and that sure as heck sounds like a zombie game to me! (1Up)

If you want the special, three-disc (two CDs of music, one DVD of film) version of the upcoming movie The Dead Matter, you will have to venture into a Hot Topic, where it will be exclusively sold. The horror, the horror… Presumably, the regular one-disc edition will be available at other, non-emo retailers. Anyway, the film is about a girl who comes into possession of a relic that allows her to control the dead, which makes her the target of a vampire lord. Sounds suitably ridiculous and it has Tom Savini. (Fangoria)

Probably no surprise to anyone, REC 2 pulled an R rating for American theaters. (Bloody Disgusting)

Learn what it’s like to be a zombie on a George Romero film, from a man who’s been there, done that. And taken pictures! (Dread Central)

There’s a new German zombie/infected movie called Rammbock coming and it looks amazing. The plot concerns a man looking for his ex-girlfriend and a young stranger he teams up with amongst the zombie-fueled chaos. Trailer is embedded below. (Quiet Earth)

If you’re going to be in Toronto on May 27, you can catch a screening of an uncut 35mm print of Lucio Fulci’s City of the Living Dead, complete with a pre-show leccture on its importance by Fangoria editor-in-chief Chris Alexander. (Fangoria)

Producer Don Carmody talks about the making of Resident Evil: Afterlife. (FEARnet)

If you like board games (and personally, I love them) then Inevitable, a board game about an insane supercomputer, a dystopic future and zombies, might be something you’re interested in. (io9)
