Romero’s Birthday Approaches

| January 16, 2012

The Zombie Community obviously has a lot of legitimate grievances with George A. Romero; his highly influential and patently offensive series of Anti-Zombie ‘of the Dead’ films contribute a lot of the ugly prejudices still seen in our society today. Yet he did also make ‘Creepshow’, one of the better Zombie movies, featuring, as it [...]

Big Box Stores and the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’?

| December 14, 2011

It’s amazing how far some people will go to create imaginary scenarios in which the Undead are the bad guys. Even when, typically, it’s the Living in those same scenarios, who, by any reasonable standard are causing the trouble. Case in point: the people who get trampled or hurt every holiday season jostling for scarce [...]

New ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Poster Shows Lasting Cultural Impact of Romero Film

| October 27, 2011

It’s not many movies that inspire labors of grisly love like this so many decades after their release: George A. Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead is the kind of movie that continues to lay the chills on hot and heavy decades after its release. The good thing for us? The merch surrounding [...]

My Alma Mater’s Student Paper is Apparently a Hotbed of Prejudice

| July 17, 2011

I have fond memories of my four years at Indiana University. Well, four years in school for me, then living on campus for a while with the art director, but you get the idea. Indiana University has a fairly prominent student paper, the Indiana Daily Student. As the title suggests, it is written and published [...]

‘Romero’s Diner’ Shirt Pushes Brain-Eating Fallacy Even in Absence of Brain-Eating

| June 18, 2011

The brain-eating myth about Zombies is very hard to combat, though we try here at The Zombie Rights Campaign. Simply put, the overwhelming majority of Zombies, whether in real life or in the biased media loosely based upon real life, are not fixated upon eating brain tissue. And as mentioned many times before on this [...]

Forbes the Latest Website to Push Column About Zombies Written By Someone Who Knows Next to Nothing About Zombies

| May 9, 2011

Uggh. Sometimes I get to have a spirited debate with a talented, witty and informed, if still hatefully bigoted, Anti-Zombie writer/creator. Other times I read a column about Zombies that is so rife with factual errors and stupefyingly bad logic that I want to break open the tequila. Again. That was the case today with [...]

BuyZombie, Brain Lollipops, Think Geek and a Challenge

| May 4, 2011

Sometimes we get a bit of gentle ribbing from the various ZRC Friends in the Horror news biz, since we have such a singular mission and focus, and so I had a bit of advance warning about this slightly… satirical take on a new Think Geek Anti-Zombie product coming out: And now a tasty little [...]

New ‘Call of the Dead’ Poster Puts George Romero at Forefront of Anti-Zombie Videogame – Literally

| April 29, 2011

We’ve been awash in ‘Call of the Dead’ info recently, and today is no exception, as a poster for the upcoming game has come the ZRC’s way and we think it’s important to share in order to fully explain the significance. At the same time however, we respect other peoples’ intellectual property, so here, have [...]

More ‘Call of Duty’ Video Explains How This is All George Romero’s Fault

| April 28, 2011

Some additional video and information has come out about the upcoming Anti-Zombie expansion for ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ and, surprise surprise, it’s all George Romero’s fault somehow: So the story in-game seems to be that Mr. Romero was shooting another one of his Anti-Zombie films and somehow awoke, and clearly angered, the Differently Animated, [...]

Yet More from Dr. Schlozman and the ZRC Take on Apocalyptic Fiction

| April 17, 2011

Honestly, this guy gets around. We’ve talked about him before here on the ZRC blog, here and here. Recently he penned a short blog post that went up on, about his theory as to the allure of ‘End of the World’ fiction. It’s worth a read for a remarkably candid glimpse into what’s wrong [...]
