Read about the adventures of the Left 4 Dead crew in the webcomic The Sacrifice, which kicked off with issue one today. (Official Left 4 Dead Blog)

Apparently, Return of the Living Dead hits Blu-ray this week. Wonder if they fixed the issues with the soundtrack that pissed off hardcore fans with the original DVD release? I’m guessing … no. (Bloody Disgusting)

Not only are they making more Resident Evil live-action movies (see yesterday’s news post), they are making a sequel to the CG-animated Resident Evil: Degeneration called Resident Evil: Damnation. (Read my review of Resident Evil: Degeneration.) (Kotaku)

The Trekkie/zombie mashup novel Night of the Living Trekkies and its author Kevin David Anderson get some coverage in what seems to be his local paper. Good for him. (The Press Enterprise)

There’s also a pretty kick-ass Night of the Living Trekkies book trailer that makes me wish it was a movie. It’s embedded below for you. (io9)

There’s a new, slick looking trailer for the “hot chicks who kick zombie ass” series (webseries, I presume) Code Z. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Bitch Slap in the zombie apocalypse and you’re in the right neighborhood. Could be fun! (28 Days Later Analysis)

A plague of demon-zombies, a dude stuck in North Korea and a cheesy heavy metal soundtrack are the key ingredients in the indie flick Fear Eats the Soul. Teaser embedded below. (Quiet Earth)

A zombie film made via the process of a bunch of zombie fans discussing different zombie apocalypse scenarios, then cobbling that into a plot could be good, but the trailer for They Walk (embedded below), which was apparently developed exactly that way, makes it look as if the end result is pretty lackluster and disjointed.

Alice herself (aka Milla Jovovich) speaks about Resident Evil: Afterlife, explaining why it’s the best of the four RE films, how her character has grown and lots more. (Fangoria)

Or, if you find reading tedious, try the Resident Evil: Afterlife behind the scenes video embedded below on for size. (Dread Central)

If you really love Dead Rising 2, you need the High Stakes Edition deluxe edition. It comes with a bunch of stuff, including a fancy poker set, commemorative map, five green dice, some custom sets of cards, exclusive DLC and a chance to win a 6′ tall zombie statue. Man, I wish I had $90 to blow on this thing. Anybody feeling generous? (Capcom Unity)

Seems a second season of AMC’s The Walking Dead is a done deal and it will begin filming in February. Great news! (Fangoria)

You can get Zombie Girl: The Movie on DVD as of November 9. If you’ve forgotten, that’s the documentary that follows pre-teen filmmaker Emily Hagins as she makes her debut zombie feature Pathogen. (Fangoria)

The hyperkinetic “parkour zombie” film Devil’s Playground gets a new one-sheet and a premiere date of October 3 at the UK’s Gorezone Film Festival. (Dread Central)

If you always wanted to stave off attacks by zombies and robots and giant bugs with your plastic guitar controller in a rhythm game, get ready to pee yourself with excitement at the Rock of the Dead trailer embedded below. (Buy Zombie)

Washington, D.C.’s Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival announced the low-budget zombie flick Colin as one of its programmed films this year. The festival kicks off October 21 and you can get more info at the official website. You can also read my thoughts on Colin if you’re interested. (28 Days Later Analysis)

There’s a second trailer for the animated would-be zombie project Year Zero (would-be as in the dude is hping someone will give him the dollars to make it a reality). You can check it out below. (Quiet Earth)

There’s also a trailer for a new webseries called Code Z. There’s a really long-winded, convoluted synopsis at that link, but here’s what you need to know: three chicks, short skirts, zombie ass-whupping. Trailer embedded below. (Buy Zombie)

It’s barely news and it’s barely zombie, but now you know that there’s a spec script floating around Hollywood about an American family’s visit to Taiwan during the time the dead can walk the earth. It’s by Kai Yu Wu, it’s called Fractured Souls and the pitch line is “The Grudge meets The Others.” I guess they’ll be walking around in bodily form, which is what makes it kinda-sorta-almost zombie.

The Walking Dead (comic) artist Charlie Adlard talks about playing a zombie in the TV adaptation and more. (Bloody Disgusting)

Or you could check out the second piece of a two-part Walking Dead (TV) set visit and learn why it was shot in Atlanta, how bad the heat sucked, tips on “Easter eggs” for fans of the comic and lots more. (Dread Central)

There’s a short new Resident Evil: Afterlife trailer available, from someplace else (Italy? My language skills aren’t so hot). I can’t get the embed to work properly, so you’ll have to head to that link to see it. (Quiet Earth)

In part two of an interview with The Dead co-director Howard Ford, we learn about the trials of shooting in Africa (cannibals, animal sacrifice and malaria, oh my!), making films as a family affair and why he chose to use slow zombies, among many other topics. (Dread Central)

Catch the buzz on Bob Fingerman’s Pariah, a thinking man’s zombie novel” about an apartment building-cum-fortress in a zombie apocalypse. (Dread Central)

The Edmonton DEDfest will run zombie film goodness from August 19-21, including Re-Animator and REC 2. Edmonton … that’s in Ontario, Canada right? Zombie I know. Geography … not so much. Oh yeah, there’s also some non-zombie horror stuff, too. (Quiet Earth)

Enjoy an interview with the creators of the comedic zombie webseries I Am Not Infected. (Balise)

The author of the Southern Gothic zombie tale The Reapers are Angels writes about the rules he used to write his zombie novel. I wish I had time to read it… (We Book)

Read an interview with The Walking Dead (TV) cinematographer David Boyd about the similarities to Westerns, Firefly (which he also worked on, a great sign!) and other great tidbits. (AMCTV)

Zombie TV is the Next Big Thing, apparently, as SyFy has its own zombie series, called Zeros (Zombie Extermination and Removal Operations), in the works. This one tilts toward comedy. (Dread Central)

The first Resident Evil: Afterlife TV spot is floating around the webs (and TV, of course). You can find it embedded below.

Some footage from Italian TV has leaked for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night and it appears the movie does, indeed, have some zombies. Yay! Also, attractive, young Italian women seem into Dylan Dog, so all you zombie nerds that have a hard time meeting women should think about becoming fans. In any case, check out the footage via the embed below. (Quiet Earth)

The master of zombology Dr. Dale Seslick (of How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse) gets his interview on and talks about zombie pets, zombie misconceptions and the benefits of the zombie apocalypse, among other topics. (Total Sci-Fi Online)

Just caught word of The Night Shift, a horror-adventure-comedy indie film about an undead cemetery watchman, his limbless corpse companion and the zombies and other beasties he has to fight. Sounds fun, and there’s a poster to look at, or you can visit the official The Night Shift website. (Dread Central)

Although the undead have nothing to with the movie, as far as I can tell anyway, you can get some zombies in your Scott Pilgrim vs. the World videogame with a “secret” controller code. There’s a video explaining it embedded below. (Edgar Wright Here)

The haunted house/zombie docu-reality webseries Days of the Living Dead is going the Kickstarter route to fund season two, in case you were looking for a project to donate to. (Buy Zombie)

Undead Diversion: Matt and Wes vs the Zombie Apocalypse

Posted by Cory Casciato On July - 23 - 2010

Happy Friday, all. Today’s undead diversion is the first episode of a promising new webseries called Matt and Wes vs. the Zombie Apocalypse. It’s got hipsters, zombies, a deep and nuanced discussion of what makes a zombie, lots of blood and some great jokes. I’m quite taken with it and can’t wait for the continuation. It also works beautifully as a stand alone zombie skit, so don’t hesitate to hit play even if you aren’t up for the “commitment” of watching a new webseries, or are worried you’ll get into it only to have it die a premature death (with no subsequent undead revival, of course).

Undead Diversion is your Friday afternoon cool link/video/etc. to help you transition to the weekend.

There are some screenshots of Dead Rising 2 to look at if you like looking at things. (The Flick Cast)

The UK has a brand-new zombie queen! She was crowned last night, as a promo for the movie Zombie Women of Satan. There are pictures, some are hot! (Zombie Command)

There was a plants vs. zombies dance-off at E3 to promote (you guessed it!) Plants vs. Zombies. The video is embedded below for your amusement. (Horror Squad)

In “most pointless pursuit ever” news, Plan 9 from Outer Space (review here) is being converted in 3D. Why? (Bloody Disgusting)

Someone’s made a cool, fake-movie poster for a potential Left 4 Dead movie. (Kotaku)

I hadn’t heard of it before, but the zombie apocalypse webseries Dead Wait has just wrapped production on its first six-episode season. (The Plog)

UK zombie fanatics can take part in Zombiefest 2010 from August 13 to 15. It seems to involve camping, zombie apocalypse drills and  movies, games, etc. To participate, sign up at the official website by July 4. (Zombie Command)
