World War Z: Film Production-Pocalypse

| June 15, 2012

I know we’ve been skeptical about the upcoming ‘World War Z’ film, but this article makes it sound like the real Apocalypse has been behind the cameras: It now seems that everything was upside-down on “World War Z.” “A nightmare from top to bottom,” describes one source with ties to the production, which appears to [...]

On ‘Doomsday Shelters’ and Zombies

| June 11, 2012

Well, our brief agreement with the Zombie Research Society has to come to a crashing end with their endorsement, once again, of a siege mentality when it comes to dealing with the inevitable emergence of the Undead as a large-scale demographic phenomenon. A literal siege mentality, actually: Now, after a slew of gory news reports [...]

Irresponsible Internet Fearmongers Exploit Gruesome Tragedy to Promote Anti-Zombiism

| May 30, 2012

We’ve gotten a lot of tips about a recent Miami case involving a man whose face was, err, chewed off by his assailant. The assailant then resisted police even to the point of requiring several gunshots to finally subdue: According to police sources, a road ranger saw a naked man chewing on another man’s face [...]

Zombies Need Coffee Too

| May 29, 2012

Do the Undead need caffeine? If they’re anything like most Living people (and of course, they are at heart, we all know that), the answer should be obvious. Even more so when courageous Zombie Rights campaigners like our Zombie of the Year for 2012 have to fight through the courts for the right of Zombies [...]

This is What Passes for Good Press? Shame on the NYT

| May 8, 2012

In a writeup about a new ‘Walking Dead’ videogame, the NYT talks about putting ‘guilt’ back in killing Zombies. Sadly, tragically, that might pass for good Zombie press, at least from the mainstream media: But what zombies! Taking an ax to the reanimated corpse of a character’s brother in the streets of Macon, or deciding [...]

Prague and Zombies

| May 7, 2012

We have another case here, I’m afraid, of the Anti-Zombie media putting a real negative spin on a fun Zombie event: PRAGUE, Czech Republic (CBS) — Prague’s historic city centre was taken over by hundreds of the walking dead in the annual festival the Zombie Walk on Saturday. It’s the fifth year for the event [...]

More ‘Zombie’ Fungus Stories

| May 5, 2012

Sigh. The mainstream press really won’t let up with this ‘call anything we don’t like or find creepy a Zombie’ routine. Case in point, the ‘Zombie ant’ saga continues as researchers find that the previous, allegedly ‘Zombie’ making fungus is itself parasitized by another fungus: For the first time, researchers have discovered how an ant [...]

Again with Bashing Zombies to do Disaster Preparedness?!

| April 27, 2012

When will the Disaster-Preparedness-Industrial-Complex realize it isn’t cool to defame Zombies to promote being ready for disasters? SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – What would happen if there was an outbreak of smallpox, flu or anthrax? The response would be the same even if zombies attacked. More than two dozen students at the University of Rhode Island [...]

Another ‘Real Zombie Outbreak’ Story

| April 2, 2012

It really is sad on a number of levels that the Zombie Community is constantly besmirched by comparisons to various ailments and disorders affecting Living people by those sad individuals, especially online, who are always looking for the imminent downfall of civilization from Undead uprising: A weird disease spreading in Africa has health officials baffled—and [...]

Bizarre Column Compares Zombies to Rats, Implies They Will Chew Through Your Power Cords

| April 1, 2012

I really don’t know what to make of some of the stuff we see in our email inboxes at the ZRC sometimes: Or, and this is most likely, there will be a zombie apocalypse and the zombies will chew through all the charger cords to all our electronic devices (these will clearly not be brain-sucking [...]
