Zombie Movie Review: Train to Busan

Last call for 2016 summer flicks! All aboard! Today I’m here to make a review of a Korean movie any passer-by of this website should check out: Train to Busan. I mean we all love great zombie stuff, don’t we? I have to be honest, it’s a film I didn’t see coming. A friend of… Read more »

Zombie Book Review: Dead Frozen

One of the things I really like about the zombie genre is how versatile it is. Naturally, most zombie stories are going to start with horror at their base, although exceptions certainly exist. That said, writers build on the foundation of horror in all sorts of interesting ways. Over the years, I’d read zombie war… Read more »

Salt and Sanctuary Review

I’m a huge fan of From Software’s Dark Souls games (I would include Bloodborne and Demon’s Souls as well). They’re notoriously difficult, but once you get the hang of the combat things start to click.

Zombie Book Review: Plagued Book Two

I really enjoyed the first Plagued novel, The Midamerican Zombie Half-Breed Experiment. It was interesting because it changed things up from what I was used to quite a bit, from the ways the zombies work to the types of characters we dealt with. It was fresh and interesting, and established a fascinating world that was… Read more »

Game Review: State of Decay – Lifeline

The open world zombie survival game State of Decay was one of my favorites when it was released on PC. Since then, the developer has released two downloadable content add-ons, Breakdown, and the recently released Lifeline. Each of these has built on the main game, but Lifeline takes this a step further by giving us… Read more »
