zombies

Believe it or not, there hasn't been a numbered "Resident Evil" game released in almost a decade that also feature 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.

Here's a leaked teaser for "Resident Evil: Retribution", the latest chance for Paul W.S. Anderson to play sexy dress up with his wife Milla Jovovich and get paid to do it. Think of it as the world's most expensive foreplay (spoiler alert: I bet it works)

I will make three predictions about this game. 1: Lloyd Kaufman makes a cameo. 2: A poop geyser will somehow be involved. 3: I will play it.

As a craggy asteroid rockets through space two bored police officers sit in their cruiser. One takes a nap. The other clocks the airspeed of a whippoorwill. Suddenly the asteroid is shown on a collision course with Earth. Our cops? Still bored, though one more annoyed with the other. The asteroid screams through the atmosphere, erupting in flame and splitting before impacting in the dirt a mile or two behind them. The smoking asteroid cracks open as we hear a squirmy chattering. Sound familiar? Of course.

I'm going to level with you, there's no way in hell I would ever be able to sit through this movie. That said, I do enjoy adorably sincere press releases.

Directed and produced by Tony Nunes, Zombie Allegiance stars Brandon Louis Aponte (Nun of That), Andre Boudreau (Atomic Brain Invasion), Carlos Brum (Splatter Disco), Sarah Nicklin (Beyond the Dunwich Horror, Nun of That), and Michael Reed (Nun of That) in a riveting and “scarily accurate metaphor* for our politically volatile times...

Wait, you mean to tell me almost the entire cast of "Nun of That" has reunited for this? Aw snap, sign me up! (trailer after the jump)

I’m not going to pretend I know anything about contemporary Japanese splatter or J-splotation films; a term I am assuming is only used outside Japan. I’ve seen “Versus” on one of those late night video store runs back when video stores were actually a thriving business. Ya, whippersnappers. Takashi Miike’s “Audition” is one of my favorite horror films period. I would have to hand in my film geek card if I hadn’t encountered “Battle Royale” at some point or another.

Like many of you, I enjoyed the hell out of AMC's new series "The Walking Dead" last season. I was extremely surprised they managed a gritty, gory tale of the zombie apocalypse that was paired with great acting and characters with personality.

Bantam has announced it will publish the official novelisation of Dead Island, a zombie action game from Techland and Deep Silver. Currently slated for a UK only release on September 8, 2011, in paperback form with a price tag of £6.99 (About $9.50).
