Book Review: Mort

Mort. That’s the name of the hero in this book, also called Mort. Not a very impressive sounding name, is it? Well neither is the guy himself. Out of breath after a light jog due to years of sitting on a stool in his comic book shop, Mort isn’t the type of main character who… Read more »

Book Review: The Hole

The Hole by Aaron Ross Powell is wonderfully weaved genre blend that takes you on a few detours that most standard apocalypse books don’t even touch. Powell is a first-time published author, and I must admit I am always wary of reading books by literary rookies. While Grammar and spelling errors don’t phase me –… Read more »

Movie Review: Day of the Dead (2008)

Remakes always take some liberties with the original (otherwise why bother?), whether that be some tweaks to the plot, adding or removing characters, changing the setting, etc. Generally these changes are fairly superficial, but even when they’re major you can always get a sense of the original. Well, almost always. 2008’s remake of Day of… Read more »

Just check out YouTube and you’ll find loads of short zombies films, some of them quite good. That… Read more »

“This is how the world ends: not with a bang, not with a whimper, but a SLAUGHTER. This is the story of the soldiers who fought to save it” Take well armed unit of the US Military, a zombie outbreak, and throw them together in the middle of a crowded city capable of producing unlimited hoards, and you have… Read more »

Brick Review: Citizen Brick Zombie Heads

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. No place is this truer than when it comes to zombie heads for your LEGO® minifigures. People who build zombie creations have always faced a pretty important shortcoming: the lack of good heads for your horde of the walking dead. In recent years we’ve gotten a… Read more »

Movie Review: La Horde

Full disclosure: La Horde is a French film with subtitles (there’s probably a dub available, but that’s lame). That might be a hangup for some of you, but you should really give it a shot anyway because it’s a pretty damn good zombie flick and there’s something to be said for broadening your horizons. Remember:… Read more »
