The ZRC at Nightmare on Chicago Street Part III: Final Thoughts

| October 31, 2011

Just wanted to make one last post about our awesome trip out to ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ both to thank the city of Elgin and the various groups that put on the show for having us, and to show off some fun pictures that didn’t get showcased anywhere else. At one end of the street [...]

The ZRC at ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ Part II

| October 31, 2011

In our last update I talked about the quite frankly spectacular show put on at the ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ event and how difficult our task of spreading Zombie Awareness in such an environment looked upon arrival. I mean, they hit just about every conceivable trope of the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ genre of pernicious fiction to [...]

The ZRC at ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ Part I

| October 31, 2011

So as you may know from previous blog entries and Twitter, the ZRC attended the ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’ event in Elgin, Illinois on Saturday, and we even managed to strike a significant blow for Zombie Rights along the way. More on that in a later post. But before we get into our own ZRC [...]

The ZRC Will Be at ‘Nightmare on Chicago Street’

| October 28, 2011

Remember the apparently No-Zombies-Allowed event being held in Elgin, Illinois this upcoming weekend that we previously mentioned on the blog? Well, clearly the ZRC wanted, nay, needed to do something about this disturbing instance of Zompartheid, and so we called in a couple of favors with our many connections in the horror community (ie, we [...]

Latest ‘Resident Evil’ Movie Injures People Even Before It’s Released

| October 27, 2011

Update: I kind of forgot to post this one, but I believe the subject matter, ie, the horrible new RE movie in the works, is still relevant to The Cause. I hadn’t actually expected the hospitalizations from the new ‘Resident Evil’ movie to crop up until audiences were subjected to it and turned to gouging [...]

New ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Poster Shows Lasting Cultural Impact of Romero Film

| October 27, 2011

It’s not many movies that inspire labors of grisly love like this so many decades after their release: George A. Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead is the kind of movie that continues to lay the chills on hot and heavy decades after its release. The good thing for us? The merch surrounding [...]

An Anti-Zombie Pinup Calendar?

| October 26, 2011

This could have been a positive, image-changing project but I gather that it indulges in a lot of negative stereotyping about Zombies instead: The 2012 Zombie Pinup Calendar has arrived! Gorgeous & Gory exhibits a variety of uniquely seductive images. The styling of each photo is unlike any other, and at the center of each [...]

Even More Zombies Fighting Against Breast Cancer

| October 26, 2011

We do some work here at the ZRC fundraising for breast cancer research via The Lurch for the Cure, as our loyal readers are no doubt aware, so seeing others also bring the Living and Undead together in the same cause is very nice: Be they zombies or ROTC members, nothing rallies the dead and [...]

ZRC at Dark Carnival 2011 Days 2-3

| October 25, 2011

We had a wild and crazy few days in Bloomington, IN for the annual pilgrimage to The Dark Carnival, and have now arrived safely back at ZRC HQ in Madison. Here is the festival that was: Day 2: The ZRC saw all the films we wanted to evaluate, including ‘A Chance in Hell’, ‘Fitness Class [...]

The ZRC Has Arrived at The Dark Carnival 2011

| October 22, 2011

We had a long journey but we’re settled into the hotel and ready for a full weekend of film viewing and agitation. We also got to attend the opening party last night here in Bloomington. Some highlights: Doc Calamari has found a new and even more hideous outfit to parade around in. He describes it [...]
