Goal Of The Dead Trailer Unleashes Zombies On A French Soccer Match

fb share tweet share


You can say a lot of negative shit about the never-ending river of zombie-related fiction that’s coming out, but at least the logical conclusion to this overload has been an abundance of off-kilter undead material. In the last few months, we’ve seen zombie beavers, plenty of Nazi zombies, and seemingly healthy people mysteriously returning from their supposed graves. But we’re not that used to French zombie soccer players, so it’s good that we’ll possibly soon be able to bone up on them in Goal of the Dead, which released its first trailer soon after picking up multiple international distribution deals. Everybody loves soccer, right? (Not me.)

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Inmates

fb share tweet share

Last week’s mid-season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead focused on a limited number of zombie apocalypse survivors. We saw what became of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), and Michonne (Danai Gurira), but the episode left you hanging when it came to everyone else. Personally, I thought this was a good move, as it allowed time to really dig into those three. This week’s offering, “Inmates,” catches us up with the rest of the gang. What have they been up to? Read on to find out, but beware, for there be spoilers.

The Walking DeadThe structure of “Inmates” is simple. Each segment of the show checks in with a different splinter of the leftovers of the group in the wake of the disaster at the prison. When you come back from a commercial break, you get the chance to hang out with someone else. You get why they play it like this, to bring everyone up to speed, but at the same time that you get to see how everyone is doing, you don’t get to spend much time with any of them.

Zombies Plus Beavers Equals This Zombeavers Trailer

fb share tweet share

Because your Saturday afternoon isn’t nearly ridiculous enough right now, we give you the new trailer for the upcoming horror film Zombeavers. Yes, you read that name right. And if you’re wondering if this movie has anything to do with beavers that are also zombies, then you are correct again, because that is exactly what is going on here.

With a name like Zombeavers, you know right away that this isn’t going to be your average, straight up scary movie, but this official trailer looks a little less tongue in cheek that you might expect. Somehow that seriousness makes it even funnier, and also helps you overlook the abundance of double-entendre beaver jokes. Then again, if you actually sit down to watch this movie—which make no mistake we will as soon as we have the opportunity—you’re probably into that sort of blue language and sense of humor.

The Walking Dead Escape Obstacle Course May Soon Attack A City Near You

fb share tweet share

the walking dead escapeThere are undoubtedly going to be people out there who will be devastated when The Walking Dead‘s fourth season comes to a close on March 30. If those people happen to live in one of a handful of U.S. cities, they won’t have to wait long to get right back into the zombie-dodging action, as the massive “Walking Dead Escape” obstacle course event is going on a nationwide tour starting in April. Who said exercise had to be boring and completely free of blood and gore?

The project, which is put on by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint, was conceived for the 2012 Comic-Con and turned San Diego’s Petco Park into a post-apocalyptic nightmare. Last year, the Escape was set up in three different cities, and now it’s headed to at least eight different cities, which will comprise the first leg of the tour, as sponsored by monster-truck rally Monster X Tour.

The CW Orders iZOMBIE Pilot From Veronica Mars Creator Rob Thomas

fb share tweet share

izombieIf creators could get royalties from other people who follow in their footsteps, The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman would be in the running for the richest man in the galaxy. Not only did his landmark comic series usher in a new wave of indie horror comics, but its transfer to the small screen for A&E has turned “the zombie” into one of the most ubiquitous characters in fiction. One of the latest examples of this phe-zom-enon (a term I’m going to copyright) is Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas’ take on the popular DC/Vertigo comic iZOMBIE, which ended its run last August. News of the adaptation came out a few months ago, and now the CW is confirming that Thomas’ vision is obviously top quality, as they’ve confirmed a pilot order.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean the network will want a full season, but the CW has been snatching up all kinds of genre properties that they can stick a beautiful cast into, which I think is a contract thing. And while iZOMBIE will no doubt feature loads of corpses, its central characters could easily be portrayed by good-looking youths who aren’t afraid to act a little wild.

Nazi Zombies Traded For Russians In Outpost III: Rise Of The Spetsnaz

fb share tweet share


While humanity currently uses calendars and clocks to mark the passing of time, I foresee a future when historians will refer to past eras in the context of how many Nazi zombie movies had come out by that point. The most prominent franchises (dis)embodying this tactic are Tommy Wirkola’s horror/comedy Dead Snow and its sequel, as well as the Outpost series, with director Steve Barker at the helm of the first and second films. And now Kieran Parker is taking things to their logical extremes in Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz, in which the always heinous Nazis are replaced with Russian military zombies. And now you guys can all enjoy the theatrical trailer seen above, as well as a bunch of stills that XLrator Media put out there.
