Dead Rising 2: Case West?

| November 30, 2010

Capcom is just determined to get on the ZRC’s bad side lately. I mean, it’s not bad enough that three separate Zombie slaughtering characters from Resident Evil are going to be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, or that they may be about to announce a new Resident Evil game; they’ve got to do more harm [...]

Leslie Nielsen, Star of Creepshow, Many Other Films, RIP

| November 29, 2010

(There are some spoilers for Creepshow in this piece but, hey, there’s a statute of limitations on this stuff, as Penny Arcade said. Please be advised) Yesterday was a sad day for film-lovers and Zombie Rights enthusiasts alike, as one of the great American comedic actors, Leslie Nielsen, died at 84 years of age. For [...]

Last Batch of Dark Carnival Photos

| November 29, 2010

Kind of forgot about these, oops. Some good stuff in here too. First, you can see the whole set of new DC photos here as a subset of our flickr page. These shots show some of our work papering the legal advertising spaces on Kirkwood in Bloomington with our flyers and literature: Would you trust [...]

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 [...]

Hours of the Zombie Hating Day

| November 28, 2010

I got this one from our frequent correspondent Michelle Hartz a while ago and sort of got sidetracked commenting upon it in the post Dark Carnival coma thing. (I also have some more video I need to upload, oops) Basically what we have here is a graphic demonstrating the ignorance many people have about the [...]

Thankstaking Day News Roundup

| November 25, 2010

As mentioned on the blog, we here at the ZRC spent the Thankstaking Day holiday relaxing and forcing ourselves to slog through Romero ‘classic’ films. Due to technical issues with Dawn of the Dead, we only got through Night and Dawn, missing the trifecta with Day. Not bad for refreshing the old memory though, plus [...]

6 (Stereo)types of Zombies Found in The Walking Dead

| November 24, 2010

Somehow, though I forget how at the moment, I learned of this Holy Taco article on the 6 ‘Types’, or as I indicated above, Stereotypes, of Zombies that have been found in The Walking Dead tv show to date (apparently). I know, I know, it’s the biggest Zombie media product to hit America in years, [...]

ZRC Reviews: Zombie Boyfriend Music Video

| November 23, 2010

Via the Horror Society the ZRC has learned about a new, award winning indie song about Zombies: The winners of the 2010 Davey Awards have been announced by the International Academy of the Visual Arts. “Zombie Boyfriend,” a music video produced by Brooklyn Girl Productions and directed by Jenine Mayring for indie artist Emii, won [...]

io9 Misinforms About the History of Zombies in America

| November 23, 2010

It’s truly tragic that this article detailing the ‘history’ of Zombies in America is a cut above the average; sad, in that such a shallow and defamatory, not to mention dubiously ahistorical piece is still so much better than most. What the io9 piece gets right, and almost everybody else misses, is that the history [...]

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 [...]
