ParaNorman novel released on July 5th

Anyone excited for the upcoming movie, "ParaNorman", (coming out August 17th in the US) should be lining up at the stores this week on July 5th for which the book the movie is based. The book is only a Grade 3 reading level - but hey, don't act like you aren't going to see the movie. I'm also a huge advocate of reading the literature before the seeing the film, and who doesn't enjoy comparing the two, only to gripe or rejoice in the similarities and differences?

George Romero's Book, "The Living Dead: The Beginning" drops this summer

We all know and love him as the grandfather of the zombie genre, and in typical grandfather fashion, George Romero is letting us know he’s still around and we should give him a call. Set to be released on July 1st, 2012, Romero has penned his first solo book: "The Living Dead: The Beginning." If you want to check it out, it's available for preorder with all major book dealers.

The Terror Experiment (REVIEW)

More and more I am finding much to love in the DTV and SyFy Channel type movie circuit. You know the ones I mean (and if you don’t what are you doing reading at this site, amirite? I kid, of course.). If I see a DVD cover with a little icon in one of the corners that says “Man-Eater Series” or something along those lines I am immediately sold. For our particular time and place these films are perhaps the closest thing we can get to the “Gindhouse” of years gone by.

Cosplay: Zombie Leia? Sure, why not

I'm guessing this kind of ruins the whole gold bikini thing...

Shorts: "Project: S.E.R.A.", zombie goodness

It's not often that a video on the internet can get me not only to watch for 10 minutes, but to actually stop all the other distractions I'm engaging in and give it my full intention. This zombified horror short did just that. It doesn't hurt that it stars Julia Voth (Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil video games, Bitch Slap), who is, you might say, not hard on the eyes.

Blood Splatter: A Guide to Cinematic Zombie Violence, Gore and Special Effects

Author Craig Chenery has released a new reference guide to zombie flicks with a special eye on their special effects and gore! With this sub-genre going super nova over the last few years, I'm positive Craig covers at least a few zombie flicks you haven't heard yet!

From the cover blurb:

Horror Gaming: "Resident Evil 6" Brings Series Back to it's Undead Roots

Believe it or not, there hasn't been a numbered "Resident Evil" game released in almost a decade that also feature zombies. At that, the last game that did was the pretty forgettable "Resident Evil 0", so you really have to go back to 1999's "Resident Evil 3: Nemesis" for the last time "Resident Evil" was simultaneously worth playing and featured zombies. Since then, players looking to get their fix of zombie killing have had to turn to ill-advised spinoff games like the Wii lightgun "The Umbrella Chronicles" or clunky, MMO-lite games such as the "Outbreak" series.

Horror Gaming: Minesweeper... with zombies

It has to say something about late twentieth century America that at a certain point, the computer game owned by the most households was a simulation where you practiced picking mines out of a field while trying not to blow yourself up. Granted, it wasn't exactly a graphic representation, but just think about it. Someone once sat by himself in a room and THOUGHT THAT UP. Just saying, it's weird.

Anyway, someone went and added an adorable little girl and zombies that want to eat her, and that's somehow still less disturbing to me. Available now on your various Apple devices.
