Nightmare on Chicago Street 2013

| October 30, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign had a great time at Nightmare on Chicago Street in Elgin last Saturday! We were once again very impressed by the extremely creative, extremely hardworking Elgin crew, who create what is unambiguously the biggest, most elaborate Halloween public celebration and Zombie Walk we have ever seen. (Like being in an action [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign Store Update

| October 28, 2013

Hello out there, Zombie Allies! Today we have some exciting (well, to us) news about The Zombie Rights Campaign store. First, though, a technical matter. We have now converted the store to run off of the Square Marketplace, who provide us (and thousands of other small businesses/organizations) with credit card processing more generally. We love [...]

Rifftrax Live: Night of the Living Dead Review

| October 28, 2013

Last Thursday night, the Rifftrax gang (who we have had previous disagreements with, see our Plan 9 From Outer Space review) hosted a screening of the classic, and unfortunately Anti-Zombie film, ‘Night of the Living Dead’. And of course, they made fun of it. (har-har. But it *could* be viewed as a Rifftrax fan mocking [...]

Busy Season for the Zombie Rights Campaign

| October 19, 2013

Zombies Allies: we hope the autumn season finds you well. The leaves are colorful, the air is crisp, and there’s a little holiday coming up, I forget the name. Hallo-something or other. I jest, of course; this is the most Zombie Time of the Year after all! Next weekend the Zombie Rights Campaign will be [...]

Walking Dead Returns This Weekend; ZRC is Already Appalled, Especially By the Media Coverage

| October 12, 2013

Yes, ‘The Walking Dead’ will be back on Sunday, showcasing the latest and ‘greatest’ in Anti-Zombie violence from the frankly disturbing mind of Robert Kirkman. This leads to a lot of breathlessly happy reporting on the season debut, and tragically stereotyped reporting on the Differently Animated. From Discovery News to CNN, it is a media [...]

Bob the Angry Flower Blames the Victim On World War Z

| October 12, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign wasn’t hugely enamored with World War Z. It had many issues, both cinematic and Civil Rights in nature. But it’s hard not to view this Bob the Angry Flower comic as blaming the CG Zombies for the failures of the film. We cannot agree with that. BTAF has had some issues [...]

Your Routine Reminder to Read ‘Skin Horse’

| October 5, 2013

We like webcomic extraordinaire ‘Skin Horse’ around here at the ZRC, for its longstanding and remarkably tolerant depiction of the Undead. However, the newly-unfolding storyline apparently involves an Undead Equality movement, complete with an ‘Undead Rights’ blogger. So naturally, we, or rather, *I* love it even more. I can steal activism ideas! I mean. Bring [...]
