dead rising

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.

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

"Yo these zombies are pimps, son!" Or at least that's what I think the dialogue should be when you see a zombie rocking a sideways baseball cap and walking with a limp. "Zombie Thugz", that should be the title of the new "Dead Rising 2" trailer that you can check out below.

I don't understand one word in the "Dead Rising" trailer, well other than when they say "Dead Rising" but the rest is completely lost on me. What I do know is that the film is based on the much loved video game and it'll be hitting Xbox 360's marketplace sometime in the near future.

Actress Zelda Rubinstein, best known for her role as Tangina in Tobe Hooper's classic "Poltergeist," died of natural causes on Wednesday. She was 76.

Have you longed to feel the rancid breath of a giant ape on your face as he leaps over your head to attack a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex? If so, you're in the luck. Filmmaker Peter Jackson has helped Universal Studios relaunch their "King Kong" theme park ride, which will open its doors this summer. Remember to pack your banana hammock.

The first trailer for Capcom's upcoming live-action adaptation of "Dead Rising" has appeared online. It's cheap, it's ugly, and it's extremely violent. In other words, I'm giddy with excitement.

Anchor Bay recently announced they have acquired the rights to Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo's "After Life," a new horror/thriller starring Christina Ricci, Justin Long, and Liam Neeson. When this thing will see the light of day is still anybody's guess.

Even though zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, I'm a bit more excited about "Dead Rising 2" than the rest. The original was an innovator in the genre when it came out for the 360 years ago, and was a hit despite it's tremendous difficulty.
