Dark Carnival Memories, 2007-2015

| September 24, 2015

The Zombie Rights Campaign has been attending the Dark Carnival (and, for the last couple of years, Diabolique International) Film Festival since before there was a Zombie Rights Campaign as such. Founded in 2007, Dark Carnival/Diabolique has been bringing horror movies of all varieties, including many Zombie films, to southern Indiana for 8 glorious, messy [...]

Fear the Walking Dead: The Dinner

| August 30, 2015

One week ago saw the premiere of the second Kirkman Zombiephobic media-extravaganza, ‘Fear the Walking Dead’, and the ZRC is still sorting through how to respond in the aftermath. Also, our computing infrastructure had a part blow out on Monday, so we had to get that nailed down. I think it died of grief. But [...]

Zombies and Karaoke in Chicago

| June 28, 2015

The ZRC has had many adventures in Chicago, and attended several of their annual Zombie Walks. We often cite the city as an example of how integration of the Undead and the Living is possible, even in a society as inundated with negative imagery and stereotyping of the Differently Animated as our own. Last weekend [...]

ZRC Calendar Announcement: The Last Dark Carnival/Diabolique Film Festival

| June 6, 2015

They say all good things come to an end, but it’s always sad when the really good ones do. The Diabolique International Film Festival, formerly The Dark Carnival Film Festival, has been a big part of the ZRC’s existence since the very beginning, always bringing us the latest and greatest in Undead Cinema to review [...]

Undead Advocacy, Zombie Friendly Attorney at Law

| June 6, 2015

It’s been a very busy spring for your ZRC advocates, but we have important announcements to make. First, one of the longest-running and most distracting ZRC-related projects has finally been completed, and we are ready to share it with you all. This, more than anything else, is what has kept the blog so quiet and [...]

ZRC Spring Update

| March 26, 2015

Hey loyal ZRC readers, just making a brief update here about goings on at ZRC Centrale. As previously discussed on the blog, things have been a bit on hiatus here for your premiere Zombie Activism organization as your ZRC President pursues his law degree. Good news on that front: I am almost done. I anticipate [...]

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Exo Zombies Brings Super-Powered Zombie Scaremongering?

| February 12, 2015

Zombies can be superheroes too. This much seems obvious to the ZRC as a matter of fairness, but also as a matter of, say, comic book history. Recently, Marvel Zombies turned that a bit on its head and tragically took the position that if a superhero becomes a Zombie they will (with few exceptions) also [...]

Don’t Use the Zed Word: Zombie Ladybug Babysitter Edition

| February 12, 2015

We hate to sound like a broken record here at the ZRC, and new science is always fun, but the Zombie Community does not benefit from labeling every scary behavior in the animal kingdom as ‘zombie’, or even zombie-like. Latest example in a long chain: The green-eyed wasp Dinocampus coccinellae turns ladybugs into zombie babysitters. [...]

ZRC Review: Necromangocon

| February 12, 2015

B. Nektar is at it again! They really seem to like the Zombie themed beverages. In this case, ‘Necromangocon‘ is a honey wine/mead, with a bit of black pepper and mango added. The actual beverage is refreshing and unassuming. Perhaps a bit too unassuming; the pepper and mango don’t come across so strongly, and the [...]

Site Fixed! No Thanks to Me

| January 20, 2015

Welcome to 2015, Loyal Zombie Allies! The Zombie Rights Campaign will be back in force this year to try and advance the cause of Undead Equality. A big first thing to check off our to-do list was to resolve the odd loading issues with this very blog. It was very mysterious! Eventually though, the art [...]
