For everyone that’s been hating this season of The Walking Dead (we know who you are, and we don’t like you) you should know that the season finale finished with almost seven million viewers, and has maintained a six million viewer average throughout the season, blowing away cable drama records. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

“You got your steampunk in my zombie movie!” is a cry that will be shouted across the globe when Cherie Priest’s novel Boneshaker is brought to the big screen courtesy of Cross Creek Productions. (Film School Rejects)

After the break, check out episode one of the new webseries Resident Evil: First Hour which is a prequel miniseries detailing the events that led up to the Raccoon City incident that took place during Resident Evil. It looks good so far. (FEARnet)

It looks like the latest ruling by a judge in the Jenna Jameson no-show case where she bailed on a screening of Zombie Strippers to attend a private party shows that the theater owner may just have a case against her. The rumor mill is stating that Jameson’s attorneys may advise her to settle. (Chicago Tribune)

We got an e-mail from the team behind Zombie Wasteland Goners and it looks like the game is now available as an alpha build. So go download it and give it a shot. Let us know what you think and we might join you online.

After the break, check out the latest trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and get ready to return to Umbrella circa 1998. (FEARnet)

You should also check out Robert Kirkman talking about The Walking Dead on The View and in an MTV interview after the break as well. Note: The clip from The View is actually the entire episode… You’ve been warned. (Shockya)

If there was ever a kickstarter campaign to fund in an effort to save humanity in the zombie apocalypse, it’s the kickstarter campaign to fund the Global Village Construction Set which contains everything you need to rebuild civilization without turning over power to those that hoarded books before the attacks. (Earth Techling)

Popular zombie manga Rain For the Dead is headed to the big screen. It’s actually a cool premise. In a world overrun with the dead, the only safe time to be outside is during a rainstorm, when your human scent is masked to those that would prefer to eat you. (Comic Book Movie)

Techland, the development team behind the amazingly popular game Dead Island, has filed a trademark for the name Dead World. I think we all know what that means. (PlayStation Universe)

After the break, check out the teaser trailer for the claymation epic ParaNorman which is brought to us by the very talented team behind Coraline. (Fused Film)

Bar owner and indie film maker Bryan Goff hope to be finished with his zombie movie Bloody Border sometime in January. I’m assuming the 2:00 AM drunk crowd will be used as both zombie and victim extras. (The Republic)

It’s been confirmed that director Craig Gillespie has walked away from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The rumor mill is pointing to budget issues and a lack of funding to make a proper film. (Deadline)

Greetings undeadheads! Sorry for the news delay. I was busy attending the GMX con in Nashville, TN this past weekend and my body is still desperately trying to catch up on sleep. Now that it’s closed the gap, I’m here to bring you some GOOD NEWS!

Based off of stellar numbers so far, AMC has already decided to renew The Walking Dead for a third season. WOOOOO! (Hollywood Reporter)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, check out this interview with Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) and a sneak peek at this weeks upcoming episode. (Dread Central)

If you’re looking for the ultimate iOS app for the zombie apocalypse then look no further than the Zombie Tools app from Guns and Gardens. It’s got GPS plugins for weather, a motion detector, and all kinds of other cool features for just .99 cents. As an iPhone user I’m definitely picking this one up. (App Advice)

Daniel Lee White, a Rhode Island native, talks about his debut feature Cost of the Living: A Zom Rom Com in this interview. (The Day)

Financial insiders estimate that the zombie media machine is responsible for roughly 5 billion dollars of our economy. So are you ready to take the zombie apocalypse seriously yet Wall Street? My shares in shotguns and canned beans aren’t going to inflate themselves… (24/7 Wall Street)

Indie zombie movie in development The Ocean Black now has a kickstarter fund to try and raise some production capital. We showed a clip from it a while back, but I’ve added it again (after the break) if you want to check it out and donate. (Quiet Earth)

The latest behind the scenes video from the apparently talented camera woman Milla Jovovich shows off Leon and Luther, new starts to Resident Evil: Retribution. Check it out after the break. (Dread Central)

Sorry for the delay with the news this week kiddies. I’ve been working hard preparing for the Geek Media Expo in Nashville, TN this weekend. If you’re going to be in the area you should definitely check it out and come say hello. I’ll be at the Trouble Ticket/FRUIT! Comic booth with my wife and we’ll be selling art, comic books, sketch cards, and doing commissions.

But enough of that! On with the news!

Our own Cory Casciato recently did an interview with Brian Peck, who played the loveable mohawked punker Scuz in the classic film Return of the Living Dead. They discuss the fan love for the series, conventions, and the recently released documentary More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead. (A.V. Club)

Check out amateur publicist and zombie killer Milla Jovovich filming a pretty epic car crash stunt for Resident Evil: Retribution from her phone and really selling how awesome it is by swearing in German (Kotaku)

You can also check out (after the break) six minutes of footage from Re-Kill, a found footage zombie apocalypse flick that shows a lot of promise. (Dread Central)

Swords of the Dead, a novel that’s supposedly on it’s way to becoming the next big ninja/zombie motion picture of all time, has posted the first three chapters for you to check out and hopefully enjoy. (Buy Zombie)

The CDC is following up their zombie post earlier this year (which apparently really boosted the blog’s net worth) with a free to read online comic called Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic. I’m a fan, but let’s hope they’re still focusing on, you know, stopping disease outbreaks… (Comic Book Resources)

It looks like the smash hit Zombieland will be returning to it’s intended origins and will (hopefully) be picked up as a television series next year. I’m looking forward to actually seeing the “zombie kill of the week.” (Ace Showbiz)

Project Zomboid, a pretty slick zombie apocalypse survival game using the Minecraft “start playing in the alpha release” method of fundraising had a major setback this week when the developers studio was broken into and computers containing the most recent version of the game code were stolen. Personally, this sounds like a cover-up for some big government conspiracy. (Shack News)

George A. Romero might want nothing to do with The Walking Dead, but apparently he wants everything to do with The Zombie Autopsies, a science based zombie novel which he’s currently working to bring to the silver screen. (Zombie Research Society)

Zombie in a Penguin Suit is a short film that’s taken the internet by storm this week. It’s pretty awesome, and you can check it out after the break and also read a nice interview with the writer and director Chris Russell. (Fast Company)

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)
