Something Fun to Tide You Over

| April 23, 2011

The ZRC is going on a long road trip tomorrow to Bloomington, IN, home of The Dark Carnival so we can see an Atomic Age Easter show. ‘Night of the Lepus’, alcohol, degenerates, sounds like a blast. For that reason, the blog will probably be silent tomorrow, so I’m leaving you all with a bit [...]

McPherson College Libary System Hates Zombies, Loves Deus Ex Machina

| April 23, 2011

I’m really stunned at some of the stuff we come across here at the ZRC. For example, McPherson College, an allegedly liberal-arts oriented school, is actually putting out a viciously Living Supremacist comic book to promote the use of its library services: Follow the link to enjoy our finished Zombie Guide to Miller Library! There [...]

‘Shaun of the Dead’ Bloody Glass Shirt Reminds the ZRC of an Old Convention Artifact

| April 23, 2011

BuyZombie brings us news of a ‘Shaun of the Dead’ shirt featuring some rather inflammatory imagery: Shaun Shaun Shaun and your inability to ever really do anything right. Only you would let the zombies get close enough to your beer glasses to dirty them up this way. Even so we know you get things worked [...]

‘Bunny the Zombie Slayer’ Promotes Hatred of the Undead on Easter, the Holiday Meant to Celebrate Undeath

| April 23, 2011

(The hate-filled trailer for the game that seeks to make Zombie-bashing the new Easter celebration activity) It’s no secret, and not hugely relevant for ZRC purposes, that I’m not a religious person. In some ways it might help me to view the Undead in a more evenhanded way, since I don’t approach the subject with [...]

More Zombie Hotels? Not Really; More Lazy Journalism

| April 22, 2011

Here’s another misuse of the Zed word for the list: The glut of hotels built as the Celtic Tiger roared, has created a dangerous combination for Ireland’s tourism secter — too many hotels… many of which would have closed but were bailed out by the Irish banking system. The result… the Zombie Hotel – a [...]

The ZRC Reviews ‘Zombie Hotel’

| April 22, 2011

It took a bit of work and quite a bit of waiting for the Region 2 DVD to get here from the UK in our heightened era of Terror Paranoia (which serves as the backdrop for many an Anti-Zombie story I might add) but the ZRC is now ready to review ‘Zombie Hotel’. (It’s sad [...]

‘Shaun of the Dead’ in 60 Seconds

| April 22, 2011

Mercifully, it omits a lot of the Anti-Zombie violence. Sadly, it doesn’t get rid of all of it, and the Scott Pilgrim-esque presentation trivializes the suffering of the Differently Animated a great deal: For shame on all involved. A sober reexamination of the original, and heinous, alleged comedy ‘Shaun of the Dead’ is what was [...]

‘Saw’ and ‘Insidious’ Co-Creator Leigh Whannell Wants to Make ‘Comedy’ About Abusing Zombie Children

| April 22, 2011

Truly sickening news, but then again this is a guy who makes his money coming up with torture porn: Here’s how Whannell pitched a comedy script he’s recently wrapped: I actually just wrote a comedy about a zombie virus that breaks out in a primary school but only effects people who haven’t been through puberty. [...]

‘Aaah! Zombies!!’ On Cable Tonight

| April 22, 2011

A movie supposedly told from the Zombies’ perspective is going to be on cable tonight: “AAAH! ZOMBIES!!” stars The Vampire Diaries’ Matthew Davis, Betsy Beutler (Scrubs), Michael Terry (Bones) and Julianna Robinson with Tracey Walter (I Spit On Your Grave). Turning the zombie film genre on its head, “AAAH! ZOMBIES!!” is a horror comedy told [...]

‘Zombie Hotel’ (Backstory)

| April 21, 2011

There’s quite a story behind the upcoming ‘Zombie Hotel’ review. Some months ago, the ZRC was tipped off to the existence of ‘Zombie Hotel’ by our resident Cultural Historian Andrew Leal, and I determined that this would make an excellent subject for review. I did some research online and discovered that while the show had [...]
