Shocking Anti-Zombie Voter Suppression in South Carolina

| January 28, 2012

This story saddened us a lot here at the ZRC, and I struggled with how to respond. It’s not every day that prominent politicians come out and explicitly state their intention to deny an entire community of American citizens their basic rights after all. Yet that is precisely what we’ve seen this week from South [...]

More Anti-Zombie Prejudice from Japan, Some Hope too for ‘NeverDead’

| January 27, 2012

Anime News Network brings us the latest tidbits on upcoming Anti-Zombie ‘games’ from our trading partners across the Pacific: The Onechanbara games started off in the Simple 2000 series, essentially the PlayStation 2 equivalent of Roger Corman’s trash-cinema studios. And like the rare B-movie that hit it big, Onechanbara rose from its budget-label origins on [...]

Something Max Brooks and the ZRC Could Agree On: This Anti-Zombie Weapon is Silly

| January 27, 2012

Gizmodo approvingly writes up a bizarre and almost-hilariously-impractical Anti-Zombie weapon modification, hilarious that is except that some gun-toting survivalist nerd will probably try to use it for real on a poor, innocent Zombie: The zombie fad will soon be as old and tired as steampunk, but ridiculous creations like this electric chainsaw accessory designed to [...]

‘Zombie Apocalypse Store’ in Vegas Shows How Low People Will Stoop for Money

| January 27, 2012

I suppose given the absolute glut of Anti-Zombie merchandise on the market today it was only a matter of time until someone decided to open a brick and mortar emporium dedicated to hating and fearing the Undead, but, wow: If and when the world is taken over by zombies — or another type of menace, [...]

‘Acquired Taste’ Shirt Could’ve Been a Contender

| January 25, 2012

Last week at the Art Director’s day job I was having lunch, and on the way back from the tray return in the cafeteria saw a Zombie-related shirt. Unfortunately I missed my chance to flag down the man wearing it so I could inquire as to its origin, and I went home wondering if I’d [...]

Welsh Anti-Zombie Novel Shows Prejudice Still Rampant in the UK

| January 25, 2012

I wonder if our UK Zombie of the Year would be willing to take a fact-finding mission to Wales? It seems they have a bit of an Anti-Zombie problem there: A HORROR author is achieving success in America with his latest novel – a tale of flesh-eating zombies set in the Gwent town of Usk. [...]

Another BuyZombie Plunge into Etsy Reveals Mixed Bag of Zombie Products

| January 24, 2012

BuyZombie periodically explores deep into the heart of online randomness merchant site in order to explore for Zombie-related purchases, and we always read their findings with interest. It’s good to know what people are peddling related to Zombies! This latest foray is no different. A highlight and a lowlight (is that a word?) follow: [...]

‘Zombie Minesweeper: A Love Story’ ? Well, I’m Offended

| January 24, 2012

As a kid I got into, and then out of, Minesweeper, the perennial computer timewasting game. Before the era of the Angry Birds it was the definitive time-wasting little game, but with a million little games and apps to kill your idle moments on smartphones and portable devices I think it’s fallen to the wayside [...]

Is ‘Undying Love’ a Zombie Friendly Love Story?

| January 23, 2012

There’s a burgeoning subgenre of what you might call Zombie Romance (as opposed to the hyper-violent ‘Rom-Zom-Com’ represented by ‘Shaun of the Dead’). We saw (and loved) ‘Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story’ and ‘Z-Town: The Zombie Musical’ last year, for example, and ‘Warm Bodies’ is well underway. Still, the more the merrier, especially if the [...]

‘Resident Evil 6′ Announcement: World War RE?

| January 21, 2012

The long-awaited (dreaded in our circle) sixth entry in the ‘Resident Evil’ series has now been formally announced with a lengthy trailer outlining the, ahem, plot and detailing some of the graphic and tragic violence it will promote against virtual, and later perhaps less-virtual, Zombies: As teased at and GameStop advertising materials, Resident Evil [...]
