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 [...]

ZRC Reviews: Slices of Life

| November 16, 2010

(Slices of Life cast and crew at the World Premiere during the Horror Society Film Festival) Slices of Life is the new anthology series from director Anthony Sumner, comprised of three of his previous short films along with an all-new framing device tying the stories together (which, in the interests of full disclosure, features ZRC [...]

ZRC Reviews: Madworld

| November 14, 2010

This is an oldie, and it came as a surprise here at the ZRC – I had intended to purchase this game specifically to get *away* from Zombie games, or more precisely, Anti-Zombie games, for a bit; that, and the fact that it was cheap, and that it’s a spiritual successor to the massively underrated [...]

ZRC Store Update

| November 13, 2010

I keep forgetting to mention this, but our ZRC wristbands are back in the store, and with a shiny new pricing scheme too! They’re virtually identical to the old model, only now they don’t have our organization written on the reverse side of the band; just good old ‘Zombie Strong’ in glow in the dark [...]

Zombies Giving Back: Car Wash Edition

| November 12, 2010

You know those charity car-washes that get held to raise money for worthy causes? Here’s one staffed by Zombies in Arizona: Metro Car Wash in Tucson, Ariz., celebrated the week leading up to Halloween by transforming its Speedway Car Wash facility into a Zombie Car Wash. The company turned its carwash tunnel into a haunted [...]

Call of Duty Black Ops Bashes Zombies and Attempts to Rehabilitate Nixon

| November 12, 2010

I’d heard of the new Call of Duty game dipping its toes into the sea of Anti-Zombie gaming of late, but this was a surprise to be sure: According to leaked videos posted online, the coming video game release “Call of Duty: Black Ops” features a sequence in which Richard Nixon teams up with John [...]

English Students in Zombie Makeup Turned Away From University Bar

| November 12, 2010

This story out of the UK, via the Daily Mail, is a bit mystifying: Students in fancy dress were turned away from a university bar by bouncers after being told their zombie make-up was racist. Members of the University of Sheffield Physics Society turned up with face paint on for the zombie-themed pub crawl. But [...]

Zombie Ship Not Welcome in Michigan

| November 12, 2010

The city of Muskegon, Michigan has a large floating ship-museum, the LST 393, a vessel from World War II originally used for amphibious landing and deployment of things like tanks (think Normandy). Some local high school kids wanted to convert it to a family friendly Halloween facility, a ‘zombie ship’, and spent a lot of [...]
