*Another* RE Movie, This Time from Japan: ‘Resident Evil: Damnation’

| September 24, 2012

I think this qualifies as overexposure: Biohazard: Damnation is currently slated for a September 25 release in North America, between the September 14 opening of the live-action film Resident Evil: Retribution and the October launch of the Resident Evil 6 game. In all honesty this trailer does make the CG movie look about a thousand [...]

Resident Evil 6 Already Working on DLC

| September 14, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign has strong opinions about ‘Resident Evil’, as you can see in our educational literature (which will need updating again soon… sigh) One of those opinions, aside from disliking the viciously Anti-Zombie prejudice, of course, is a cynical appreciation of the bewildering number of ways Capcom has found to cash-in on its [...]

Et tu, ‘Is This a Zombie?’

| May 12, 2012

We’ve praised the anime series ‘Is This a Zombie’ (Kore wa Zombie desu ka) here on the ZRC blog extensively. So I feel particularly saddened at what appears to be an authorized commercial tie-in with the upcoming Anti-Zombie spectacle ‘Lollipop Chainsaw’: Warner Bros. released a full costume list on Thursday for its upcoming North American [...]

‘Resident Evil’ Gets a Violent Manga Adaptation

| February 26, 2012

And it’s not the first one either, apparently: This isn’t a Resident Evil first, as RE has already seen manga iterations. This latest one is set in a prestigious Asian institution, located on an isolated island. When there’s a zombie outbreak, Chris Redfield is sent into investigate. How many isolated laboratories in remote locales ARE [...]

‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ Out Soon

| February 4, 2012

I really don’t have a lot to say about ‘Revelations’ at this point; the ZRC doesn’t own a 3DS, which is apparently not as uncommon as Nintendo would like, and the old marketplace of ideas is pretty flooded right now with RE titles, remakes, HD releases and the like. Still, for a summary of the [...]

More Anti-Zombie Prejudice from Japan, Some Hope too for ‘NeverDead’

| January 27, 2012

Anime News Network brings us the latest tidbits on upcoming Anti-Zombie ‘games’ from our trading partners across the Pacific: The Onechanbara games started off in the Simple 2000 series, essentially the PlayStation 2 equivalent of Roger Corman’s trash-cinema studios. And like the rare B-movie that hit it big, Onechanbara rose from its budget-label origins on [...]

‘Resident Evil 6′ Announcement: World War RE?

| January 21, 2012

The long-awaited (dreaded in our circle) sixth entry in the ‘Resident Evil’ series has now been formally announced with a lengthy trailer outlining the, ahem, plot and detailing some of the graphic and tragic violence it will promote against virtual, and later perhaps less-virtual, Zombies: As teased at and GameStop advertising materials, Resident Evil [...]

A Grim Anniversary: 15 Years of Anti-Zombie Videogame Violence

| January 19, 2012

Did you know that it’s been 15 years since Capcom started peddling Anti-Zombie prejudice in the ‘Resident Evil’ game series? Well, it has, and they’re even having a party to, ahem, celebrate: CAPCOM revealed on Tuesday that it will stream its Resident Evil (Biohazard) 15th anniversary party being held in Tokyo on its Ustream channel [...]

More Sparkly Evil from ‘Lollipop Chainsaw’

| January 5, 2012

The ZRC’s position on the nightmarishly boring, intellect-sapping evil known as ‘Sparkly Vampires’ is well known to our readers. However, what about Sparkly Living Supremacism? Well, you’ll get plenty of that, tragically, in the upcoming game ‘Lollipop Chainsaw’, previously covered here and here on the ZRC blog. It’s not pretty: Sparkle Hunting? Giant glowy hearts [...]

‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ Gag Trailer Shows More of the Same, Plus Ridiculously Over the Top Sexism

| September 24, 2011

I was all prepared to rip into this new trailer for ‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ for the usual litany of (perfectly valid) complaints about the rampant Living Supremacism of the RE Series, but I have to admit in all honesty I was distracted by something else: truly rampant to the point-of-anachronism, classic b-movie sexism. Check it [...]
