Platoon of the Dead (REVIEW)

Let there be no doubt: zombies are the subject du jour when it comes to low budget horror. Just as in the uprisings they portray, you can spit in any direction and guarantee you will hit a low budget zombie movie. These movies will range anywhere from your standard Romero knockoff -- three survivors trying to make it through the night -- to those with grand visions in mind and goals of knocking the proverbial head off of the living dead with their new and cutting edge ideas. Such is "Platoon of the Dead" which likely began with grand ideas, but falls far short of its goals.

Evilution (REVIEW)

In today's age when zombies are more embedded in pop culture than perhaps ever, it is only natural that filmmakers are now trying to change up the formula a bit. It's an admirable venture, but often hard to execute. In "Evilution", this change-up comes from alien intelligence being the vector that brings the dead to life. The upshot is that with this alien background comes new ways to try and kill the undead. All of it comes full circle in this shoddy take of what is surprisingly not a Syfy Original feature.

Last of the Living (REVIEW)

Thanks to Danny Boyle and his rage-infested 2002 "zombie" film "28 Days Later," we now have a neverending stream of fetid "undead virus" movies clogging video store shelves all across the globe. And while some of these second-rate knock-offs serve as passable Friday night entertainment, the majority of these endeavors are nothing more than cheap cash-ins designed to sucker naive, watch-anything horror fans out of their hard-earned cash. If you think you've got an original spin on an established idea, that's great. Outstanding. I'm very happy for you, and wish you nothing but the best.

"Colin" Trailer is Fancy on a Budget

As over-saturated as we are with zombie movies at times, there are always new angles to hit on. Zombies are rich with subtext and writers and directors keep finding different facets to highlight. The British nano-budget film "Colin" looks like a great example. The film was the talk of Cannes, has gotten positive reviews in the US and UK, and talks are in progress for US and Japanese distribution. From the press release:

Walk a Zombie Bridge in "Undead Knights" (PSP)

Everyone and their mother is putting out a zombie game these days, and Tecmo is now jumping into the fray with "Undead Knights." Slated for an October release in Japan, it will feature pretty straightforward hack and slash gameplay as well as wacky environmental puzzles that involve using the decaying hordes to cross rivers, topple towers, etc. It's on the PSP so it looks to be about the quality of your average PS2 game, but zombie game completists will find something to love. With a trailer this enthusiastic, how could you not be just a little excited?

Indie Filmmakers Fight Bandwidth Costs

A few months back the horror web was besieged with stories about "Survive The Outbreak", an interactive zombie short film that put you, the viewer, at the controls of the main characters. It was essentially a "choose your own adventure" horror film, that I might add was very impressively designed.

Trailer for French Zombie Film "La Horde"

I'm all for genre-mixing - not everyone's on a hot date or exploring a savage island when the zombies invade. This French "gangsters vs police vs zombies" film called "La Horde" looks like a great example.

"Zombieland" Trailer Is The Shit

The trailer for Woody Harrelson's epic zombie romp "Zombieland" hit the web tonight. Sure it looks a lot like "Shaun of the Dead 2", but I can't lie, I'm totally sold on this hot mess. Leave that feedback in the comments, friends.
