Obviously we’re going to start off the day with the Walking Dead news from the weekend, of which there was a lot. Also the podcast will be returning very soon where we’ll recap the previous episode of the show and discuss other things zombie.

Hornady Manufacturing has just released it’s line of “Zombie Max” ammunition which is guaranteed to be the most effective firearm round for dispatching of the undead horde. (Pete Thomas Outdoors)

Undead Labs has released some new info about their upcoming zombie MMO and it looks like it’s going to be pretty epic. If the rumor mill is true then when you die in the game, you’re dead, for good, until you return as a zombie. (MMO Crunch)

I guess the best way to start off the news is with a truckload of Walking Dead updates

A SWAT team in Budapest recently raided the World War Z set to confiscate a cache of REAL, FUNCTIONAL weapons that were brought in under the assumption they were movie props. This is just another hurdle for a movie that is reportedly over budget and past deadline. (Examiner)

An accident on the set of Resident Evil: Retribution has caused injuries to sixteen zombie extras but thankfully no one was killed. (Dread Central)

David Morse has just signed on to play a prisoner (who doesn’t seem to be a character in the book) in the upcoming epic World War Z. Personally I’m stoked, because he’s one of my favorite character actors. (Cinema Blend)

It looks like Resident Evil: Retribution will be using the Las Plagas parasite storyline from the last two games in the upcoming film. Zombies (who are actually infected people who are still very functional) will ride motorcycles and shoot guns. I can live with that. (All About Bikes Magazine)

It’s been confirmed that Yakuza: Dead Souls (originally called Yakuza: Of The End in Japan) will receive a US release in March 2012. It looks like a good game that mixes Grand Theft Auto and zombies. (FEARnet)

Netflix just finalized a deal with AMC to bring The Walking Dead (along with other good shows from AMC and Sundance) to their streaming service and it SHOULD KICK IN THIS WEEKEND! Future seasons will also be available before the new season starts. (The Wrap)

After a slight delay, Resident Evil: Revelations is expected to hit the markets February 7. If you’re into the collectibles, Gamestop has a pre-order bonus of a pretty slick looking cover for your 3DS. (FEARnet)

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)

If you follow Milla Jovovich on twitter, you’ve probably already seen the videos she posted of table reads from Resident Evil: Retribution and a clip of her firing some guns. If not, check them out. (Dread Central)

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)

So it looks like AMC is giving the green light to the Talking Dead, a talkshow style series that will air after each episode of The Walking Dead where media nerd God Chris Hardwick will interview cast and crew about the series and recap the show. (Deadline)

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)

On the heels of their amazingly popular article earlier this year, the CDC has declared October to be Zombie Preparedness Month, and plan to release a lot more undead awareness onto the world that will tie in to real life emergency guidelines. (The Fort Scott Tribune)
