‘Ask a Mortician’ Web-Series Bashes Zombies

| March 18, 2012

ZRC pal Michelle Hartz, author of ‘Brains for the Zombie Soul’ (which you’ll be able to buy at Horrorhound in ONE WEEK), sent us a link to this webseries featuring a mortician answering questions about death, and, here, about Zombies: I have to say, this is a truly unfortunate mishmash of fact and prejudice. Zombies [...]

‘Brains for the Zombie Soul’, the ZRC-Approved New Work From Michelle Hartz

| March 16, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign is particularly proud of the solid working relationships that we have fostered over the years with artists, filmmakers, bloggers, journalists and authors, all in an attempt to promote a more Zombie Friendly and enlightened view of the Undead Community, both here and abroad. One of the most fruitful of these relationships [...]

‘The Dead Mile’, Upcoming Canadian Anti-Zombie Film

| March 15, 2012

We got passed the trailer for ‘The Dead Mile’ a while ago on Twitter and I’ve been remiss in not mentioning it before now, so here, take a look and be suitably outraged: What’s going on here? Well, the film’s About page has some clues. Essentially we’re talking about a Zombie Apocalypse movie whose ‘outbreak’, [...]

‘Vote Zombies’ Shirt Attempts to Marginalize Zombie Participation in Political Process

| March 15, 2012

We at The Zombie Rights Campaign have long believed that Zombies should have, and must demand (peacefully of course) a place at the table when it comes to politics. Showing solidarity with their fellow Undead, Zombie Walks for particular causes, meetings with public officials and vote-seekers, all are appropriate methods for the Differently Animated to [...]

Anti-Zombie Pets? Why Not Adopt a Zombie Pet Today?

| March 14, 2012

The Zombie Research Society has some of their usual fearmongering about the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ up, today concerning the potential utility of dogs and cats in sniffing out (and persecuting) the soon-to-revive-as-Zombies: There‚Äôs little question that the transformation caused by a zombie infection could be easily picked up by any number of common and exotic animals. [...]

The ZRC Will Attend Chicago Fear Fest

| March 13, 2012

All right, all right; you’ve got us, Chicago Fear Fest. Even though you’re arriving right on the heels of our Ohio-excursion to Horrorhound in Columbus, The Zombie Rights Campaign can’t turn down this opportunity. First, you tempted us with a Chicago-premiere of sure-to-be-huge Anti-Zombie film [REC 3] and ‘Cadaver Christmas’, then you sweeten the deal [...]

Chicago Fear Fest Adds ‘Juan of the Dead’ to Lineup

| March 13, 2012

We’ve mentioned ‘Juan of the Dead’ a bit here on the ZRC blog, as it’s been getting regular attention in the press for being a fairly unusual film. Hailing from the more-typically arty and somewhat isolated Cuban film scene, ‘Juan of the Dead’ is instead an attempt to land some of that (tragically) lucrative Anti-Zombie [...]

Updated Literature

| March 13, 2012

We’ve been working behind the scenes here at the ZRC to get ready for Horrorhound, and that brings us to the subject of today’s post: literature. Did you know that the ZRC’s resources page has helpful (and lovingly illustrated) informational pamphlets on a variety of topics? It’s true, we do. And all of said pamphlets [...]

‘Zombie Research Society’ Debuts Cool (But Still Troublesome) Zombie Poster

| March 9, 2012

It’s well-known that we don’t get along with the ‘Zombie Research Society’ here at The Zombie Rights Campaign; their ‘research’ is geared toward hurting the Undead, and they certainly don’t want Zombies to have rights. Which, to be clear, is a bigoted and offensive position to take. Meanies. This poster they’ve commissioned for their Undead-bashing [...]

Michigan State University Offers Explicitly Anti-Zombie Course

| March 9, 2012

Well, while we’re not exactly surprised that an institution of higher learning has decided to officially Anti-Zombie prejudice in the curriculum, The Zombie Rights Campaign is nevertheless saddened by this news: EAST LANSING, Mich. – Forget Advanced Political Theory or even Introduction to Chemistry. The one class that everyone is dying to take this summer [...]
