A Very Special ZRC Review: ‘Zombie Bohemia’

| April 19, 2012

Readers of the blog might be wondering by this point whether there were any Zombie movies at Chicago Fear Fest that we actually liked. It’s true, I admit; the ZRC can be hard to please, and our standards may be a tad exacting. But look no further, for today we’re reviewing ‘Zombie Bohemia’, which truly [...]

ZRC Review: ‘Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies’

| April 19, 2012

The ZRC saw ‘Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies’ last weekend at Chicago Fear Fest, and, well, it’s pretty much just what it says on the tin: this is a movie about perhaps the greatest American president… fighting Zombies. Innocent Zombies. *sigh* Where to begin? Update: See the full review behind the cut. If you need a [...]

ZRC Review: ‘Juan of the Dead’ (Plus Zombie Politics, Communism, and More)

| April 18, 2012

‘Juan of the Dead’ was one of the titles we wanted to evaluate most for the ZRC, and fortunately Chicago Fear Fest just about dropped a screening opportunity in our laps. The film has gotten considerable attention over the last year, both from the international press and from the Zombie Rights Community. Some see the [...]

ZRC Review: “REC 3: Genesis”

| April 18, 2012

Warning: Due to the ending of REC in particular, as well as the tightly related nature of the film series generally, it is impossible to meaningfully discuss ‘REC 3: Genesis’ without spoiling events in the first two films. If you have not seen these movies and still wish to, I strongly suggest you not read [...]

The ZRC at Chicago Fear Fest

| April 17, 2012

Well, we’ve had a day to decompress from the astoundingly Zombie movie packed inaugural Chicago Fear Fest and have a lot to report to you, the loyal Zombie Friendly readers out there. CFF sets a record for the ZRC, actually; we saw seven separate Zombie-related films for the first time at Chicago Fear Fest. The [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign is Back from Chicago Fear Fest

| April 16, 2012

Yes, and we had a very productive and often infuriating time watching almost all of the many Zombie-related films on offer. In total we saw 7 that were directly relevant to the ZRC mission, including ‘REC 3′, ‘Juan of the Dead’, ‘Zombie Bohemia’ and even the outrageous piece of revisionist history called ‘Abraham Lincoln vs. [...]

‘Mmmm Brains’ Shirt

| April 13, 2012

BuyZombie has a blurb up about a new shirt catering to that recent and yet very pervasive idea that Zombies are obsessed with brain-eating. Because BuyZombie is a cut above average in reporting on Zombie stuff they note the actual origin of the myth in their synopsis though (kudos): Are you one of the legion [...]

Zombie ‘Apocalypse’ Simulator, for the Paranoid Max Brooks Fan Out There

| April 13, 2012

I’m not sure I’d even characterize this as a game; more like a virtual ant farm you get to kick over as often as you like. Which is pretty sadistic, really: The game uses Google Maps to overlay swarms of zombie on real-world locations—imagine how eerie it would be to watch the undead descend on [...]

Taiwan’s First Anti-Zombie Movie: “Zombie 108″

| April 13, 2012

The ZRC will be watching ‘Juan of the Dead’ this weekend, but the international market continues to supply us with new Anti-Zombie ugliness: Billed as the very first Taiwanese zombie movie, Zombie 108 (棄城Z-108) has generated lots of buzz among horror aficionados both at home and abroad. … With a more than adequate beginning that [...]

Working on Store Updates, Site Stuff, Please Stand By

| April 10, 2012

So after the convention we planned to put the new Necronomicon shirt up right away, but one thing led to another and we’ve decided to make some changes to the store, tinker with a few things, maybe put in a new payment system since PayPal is being erratic, etc. Even if something’s not in the [...]
