A Different Sort of Apocalypse

| August 29, 2011

From a ZRC Twitter pal comes a tale to illustrate how silly the Zombie Apocalypse genre really is, by substituting another unlikely foe of Living humans for the Undead. Dolphins. Yes, dolphins: Still, Terry has been hunted his whole life, and nobody has caught him yet. Using stealth techniques learned from a lifetime of scavenging [...]

Not Sure How to Feel About ‘E-mails of the Dead’

| April 28, 2011

Spoilers follow: This story at The Zombie Feed has been up in my tabs for a bit, and I’m not sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, it purports to be another one of those (fictional) I’m-becoming-a-Zombie-and-not-aware-of-the-obvious-for-some-reason stories that you see from time to time in Zombie-related fiction. ‘Resident Evil’ had a [...]

Hasn’t Seth Grahame-Smith Done Enough?

| March 17, 2011

First of course, Mr. Grahame-Smith got the ball rolling on the entire genre of ‘Mix public domain work with Zombies’, for which literature itself owes him a sound thrashing. Yes, we can lay the lion’s share of the blame for an entire subgenre of lazy, relatively unimaginative Anti-Zombie fiction at his feet, even if, of [...]

Weekly World News Spoofs Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Plans

| January 3, 2011

A hilariously tongue-in-cheek sendup of your various survivalist guides for the mythical ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ was published recently by The Weekly World News, no doubt in an attempt to correct the record and help in the battle against the vicious and of course internally inconsistent and contradictory stereotypes against the Differently Animated: Worried about Zombies coming [...]

Locus Review First in New Anti-Zombie Trilogy

| December 26, 2010

I don’t have a huge amount to add to this review Locus posted of ‘Feed’, the first in a planned trilogy of pseudo-political dramas set in a Zombie post-Apocalypse, but there are a couple points that seem striking: 1) The Political/Media Culture in 2039 is Basically the Same as Today I mean, seriously? The ‘traditional’ [...]

| December 17, 2010

Google has alerted me to the filming of a new and supposedly more socially-conscious Zombie movie being shot now in Georgia: MACON, Ga. — First “The Walking Dead” swarmed Atlanta. Now the zombie apocalypse is infecting Macon. Shooting is underway in Macon for the film “Followed,” a socially concious monster movie in which zombies symbolize [...]

Yet Another Guide to Surviving the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’

| November 11, 2010

Honestly, how many of these are there going to be? As yet the undead have not risen from their graves and stared to devour the living – but there was a time when we said man would never walk on the moon and look what happened there, eh? We must prepare for the inevitable and [...]

World War Z: It’s Official, and We’re On the Case

| July 25, 2010

So you’ve no doubt seen the big news from Comic-Con: the long-rumored World War Z movie is very real, it really does star Brad Pitt, and it is in development. All the ZRC can say for the moment is that we’re appalled. In the annals of Anti-Zombie literature, hatemonger Max Brooks looms large, having done [...]

Zombie Disney Princesses!

| July 1, 2010

see more This is an awesome show of Zombie solidarity, with some undead getting together for a costume theme party. Either that, or fictional characters can rise from the dead without ever having been alive, and they come back as Zombies. Which would be awesome, but might pose some difficulties, especially as regards paperwork, drivers’ [...]
