Zombie Apocalypse Simulations Create Hateful Live Entertainment

| March 30, 2012

It’s a sad statement that much of the populace today lives in constant fear of a ‘Zombie Apocalypse’. You almost can’t blame them; the media feeds our society a constant diet of Anti-Zombie terror and prejudice, from ‘The Walking Dead’ to ‘World War Z’ to an entire gamut of videogames, novels, comics and more. Still, [...]

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 [...]

Anti-Zombie Boot Camp in the UK Starts Soon

| February 27, 2012

Well, we’ve seen Anti-Zombie camps for kids and such here in the US, but what if you’re an adult who wants to learn how to brutalize the innocent, unsuspecting Undead population with military precision? Or what passes for it in a few hours of training? And what if you live in the UK, and want [...]

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. [...]

‘Woody Allen Jesus’ Song Censored from ITV; Was It Because It Said Jesus Was a Zombie?

| December 23, 2011

Musician and comedian Tim Minchin recently ran into a bit of censorship over a not-terribly-edgy comedy song about Jesus he composed for a Pre-Christmas special on British tv network ITV: So I got to writing. Being Christmas, I thought it would be fun to do a song about Jesus, but being TV, I knew it [...]

The ZRC Zombie of the Year for 2011

| December 17, 2011

I trust you’re all aware of the proud list of nominees we selected for the shortlist for this, the ZRC’s award honoring the very best and noblest efforts by a Zombie to improve the public image of the Zombie Community and advance the cause of Zombie Rights. If not then I do humbly suggest you [...]

[REC]3 Says Zombies Not Welcome at Weddings

| December 14, 2011

Spain’s recent revival of cinematic Anti-Zombie prejudice exposes a lengthier history of Zombie-bashing; surely we’re not the only ones who recall ‘Tombs of the Blind Dead’? Still, as odious as the ‘mock the handicapped Zombies’ Blind Dead films were, they lacked the slick, HD-ready production values* of [REC] and its sequel. Truly, and tragically, fear [...]

Zombie of the Year 2011 Nominations

| December 10, 2011

It has been a momentous year for Zombie Rights. The ZRC has done outreach galore, dipped our toes into political controversy, led a Zombie Rights rally in Illinois and even participated in the world’s first (to our knowledge) Zombie Rights Debate in Victoria, Texas. But this post isn’t about us. Standing up for the rights [...]

“Z-Rated: Zombie-proof your own home” for the Bigoted, Anti-Zombie Gated Community of Tomorrow

| December 6, 2011

One of our trusted UK informants obtained an interview with two of the apparent leading lights of the Living Supremacist Architecture movement, and the results are a chilling look into the attempted harnessing of consumer culture to prejudice and oppression: So our solution to the idea of a zombie apocalypse is not a ‘one-off’ mobile [...]
