‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ Gag Trailer Shows More of the Same, Plus Ridiculously Over the Top Sexism

| September 24, 2011

I was all prepared to rip into this new trailer for ‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ for the usual litany of (perfectly valid) complaints about the rampant Living Supremacism of the RE Series, but I have to admit in all honesty I was distracted by something else: truly rampant to the point-of-anachronism, classic b-movie sexism. Check it [...]

‘Dead Island’ Release Controversy

| September 22, 2011

We’ve covered the promotion of the odious and seemingly-Living Supremacist game ‘Dead Island’ extensively here on the ZRC blog, but perhaps I should mention something about its recent high profile release, and why I have no intention of buying it for review anytime soon: They released an incomplete and unfinished game, one that is ludicrously [...]

Porn Company Prepares to Ride out Zombie Apocalypse?

| September 22, 2011

This story about prejudice and the negative framing of the so-called ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ (instead of the much preferable term ‘Global Reanimation Block Party’) is more than a little bizarre: “Debbie Does End of Days”? San Fernando Valley porn purveyors Pink Visual may be the only adult film company equipped to release such a title, as [...]

‘World War Z’ Director Admits to Extremely Loose Adaptation of Book at Best

| September 21, 2011

When you hear things like ‘the spirit of the Book’ you should know by now that the final product will bear extremely little similarity to the literary work that you loved (or in our case, hated): Get More: Movie Trailers, Movies Blog You had to guess he’d say things like that. The book doesn’t have [...]

Anti-Zombie Survivalist Exercise App Comes to iPhone, Eventually Android

| September 21, 2011

Exercise is important, and I know I personally am trying to get more. This, however, is no way to induce people to get fit: Indie developer Six to Start and Naomi Alderman are attempting to kick start their new app, aptly titled ZOMBIES, RUN! On the surface, the fitness app can be used to record [...]

Details of Anti-Zombie LARPing in an Abandoned Mall (Of Living Supremacism)

| September 19, 2011

Out of all the things you will read on this blog about those who hold unfortunate Anti-Zombie prejudices.. is definitely the following. But at least it’s occasionally very funny, and even though the ‘Zombies’ are unfortunate stereotypes, they usually prevail over the treacherous and untrustworthy Survivors. Who are playing themselves, kind of. Which says a [...]

‘Warm Bodies’ Casting Continues to Draw Huge Names

| September 19, 2011

Honestly, I couldn’t believe this one at first: John Malkovich is in final negotiations to join the cast of Summit Entertainment’s zombie pic “Warm Bodies.” Jonathan Levine (“50/50″) is writing and directing the film, which will star Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer and Rob Corddry. … Malkovich will play General Grigio, who’s obsessed with the destruction [...]

Geek.Kon and the ZRC: The Whole Story

| September 19, 2011

I’ve hesitated to write this post about our ill-fated attendance at Geek.kon all week, despite interested parties, Zombie Allies and dear friends asking about it in the intervening time, because the ZRC is about positive change, working toward a brighter tomorrow for the Living and Undead alike. We don’t like burning bridges. But, as longtime [...]

Politics and Zombie Rights in ‘Tea Party Zombies Must Die’

| September 17, 2011

You know, as much flack as we get here at the ZRC for wading into politics, you have to concede that sometimes it’s completely necessary: A new video game is giving players a chance to explore a post-apocalyptic Fox News studio and kill off zombies that resemble famous conservatives including Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Newt [...]

New Anti-Zombie Comic Collection “Daybreak”

| September 17, 2011

I’d heard about this at some point in the past but it’s out now and apparently pretty ghastly for the Differently Animated: The comic Daybreak is a field trip through the zombie apocalypse Brian Ralph’s graphic novel Daybreak takes a phenomenological approach to survivalist horror. Like the participant in a pick-a-path novel, the reader is [...]
