Editing is an extremely important process. Regardless of how good you are at something, your first pass will always benefit from some additional thought and refinement. Editing becomes especially important when most of the creative process is handled by one or two people. Often times, low budget films fail because so much of the creative process is handled by a select few individuals, and they become far too attached to the end product to let anything go, or can’t step back and realize what does and doesn’t need refined and tweaked.

I have no idea what a Pontypool is, but it made me angry.

In a world gone mad, there are two men, nay heroes, who have decided to face the zombie apocalypse with zest, heroism, cowardice and one-liners. Join them as they navigate through a zombie world in, “You’ve Got Dead On You”.

Good comedies are hard to find nowadays. Good comedies about zombies are even harder to find. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered "You've Got Dead On You" and listening to it has earned me more than a few strange looks when I giggle to myself in the office.

I’m pretty burned out on zombies. And that’s coming from a guy with a “Dawn of the Dead” poster in his living room that’s attempted to talk women up at a bar about their zombie apocalypse survival plans (Pro Tip: if a girl actually has a plan in mind, they’re a keeper).

I've been a gamer almost all my life. I had an Atari 2600 joystick in my hand from the time I learn to sit up, and I've burned through every gaming platform since. Yes, dear internet - my name is Erin, and I'm a nerd.

And like all nerds, I've dreamed that skills I've acquired blasting baddies, head-shotting noobs, and dominating pixels would some day be humanity's only hope for survival...and then I wake up and go back to filling out TPS reports like the corporate monkey I am.

Carriers plays a neat trick – it's a zombie film without zombies.

Horror films need a set of rules. Given all the insane, supernatural things that occur in them, the viewers need to know what can and can’t happen in the film’s universe so that they can properly react to what they are viewing. For example, we know that in “Evil Dead II” the dead are raised by the incantation of a passage from an ancient text and that the only way they can be stopped is for another passage from the book to be read aloud.

Remember all the joy and fun you had as a kid playing "Oregon Trail"? Or if you're not old I should probably ask if you even remember Oregon Trail at all. If you don't then don't bother looking it up, because the good people at The Men Who Wear Many Hats have made it better. Kids, I present to you "Organ Trail". A revamped version of the Apple classic that features what every game needs, zombies. Load up your station wagon, gather supplies and head off on a cross country adventure. The best part? It's free to play online!

OHNOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY!!! It's almost time for Halloween!!!!!!

So if you're looking to kill some time, and for some reason HAVEN'T played the original Dead Rising - now's the time. Dead Rising 2 was just released, and Amazon slashed the price of the original to $10!!! And I bet if you looked, you could probably find it even cheaper used. Unfortunately, I think the original was only available on the XBOX360.
