The Very Air Itself Is Against Me (Sometimes)

| November 28, 2010

At The Dark Carnival, I recorded a short testimonial from our esteemed Zombie of the Year Award 2010 winner, Baron Mardi, and intended to upload it to the site. Then I got a bad trip hangover from the ride back, and in our big Halloween Romero-a-Thon (heavily documented in the Twitter feed) it slipped my [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign and Dark Carnival 2010

| November 23, 2010

Well the trip to The Dark Carnival was tons of fun and went off without a hitch, right up until the day after we get back and I fall terribly ill while trying to get the media uploaded and some posts written about the trip. Sorry about that. We have returned from our triumphantly successful [...]

The ZRC Has Returned from The Dark Carnival Film Festival

| November 22, 2010

We are back from our trip to the premiere independent horror film festival in the country, The Dark Carnival Film Festival, and are digging out from the trip. I have a couple gigs of photos and video to process (yes, gigs), and then reviews to write for a few things, topics to discuss, and some [...]

The ZRC Hits the Road

| November 18, 2010

We’ll be driving, err, pretty much all day to be at The Dark Carnival Film Festival for the whole weekend. I’ll check in when we get to the hotel, so hopefully the Zombie Rights related emergencies will be at a minimum today.

ZRC Reviews: Helpless

| November 17, 2010

Full disclosure: Helpless is a novel written by Friend of the ZRC Michelle Hartz, who often helpfully supplies us with tips and leads on potential Zombie stories. With that out of the way… When the Zombie Rights Campaign has business in Southern Illinois or Indiana, we often take a relatively Westerly route, heading down 1-39 [...]

| July 22, 2010

Today at The Zombie Rights Campaign we are privileged to review and discuss what may be the most important film to ever critically examine the plight of the Differently Animated in American Culture: Atomic Age Cinema TV 2: Atomic Boogaloo. A great deal more below the cut.

Undead Boy Makes Good

| June 19, 2010

Well, ok. ‘Good’ is always a flexible term with the Baron. Nevertheless, look which gang of miscreants, who are very friendly with the Undead, has moved to the high-tech world of net celebrity? That’s right, the old gang from Atomic Age Cinema, including noted Bloomingtonian Undead Baron Mardi, will be hosting 100 Years of Monster [...]

ZRC Went to Horrorhound

| April 7, 2010

I keep forgetting, amidst all the behind the scenes stuff, to update the blog. I am deeply shamed. We went to Horrorhound a week and a half ago, and man was it a lot of fun in the name of Zombie Rights. This year we didn’t have a booth, unfortunately, but we made up for [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign at The Dark Carnival 2009!

| October 9, 2009

First, please accept the ZRC’s sincerest apologies on the lateness of these updates. A lot of work piled up here in Madison while we were away, and sadly, some of it had to be dealt with before we could supply you with the Zombie content you crave. Absolutely ENORMOUS and wonderful post behind this cut:
