Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore) are realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of the USA’s Santa Clarita, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change into a zombie, sending both their lives as estate agents down a road of death and destruction … but in a good way. Yes, […]
We certainly get the inside joke about wanting to skewer something as raucous and ridiculous as lambasting nonsensical and numbing grade B horror flicks that are worthy of such scrutiny. After all, the temptation is just too much to resist in not exposing such throwaway thrills of intentional insipidness, correct? Plus, incorporating a mixture of […]
Max Brooks is an American writer and the son of comedy director Mel Brooks and Hollywood actress Anne Bancroft. His best known books are ‘The Zombie Survival Guide’ and ‘World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War’, the latter of which was loosely adapted into a Hollywood blockbuster featuring Brad Pitt in 2013. […]
‘The Walking Deceased’ is a wildly uneven zombie film parody. It takes a lot of pot shots at other familiar films, zombie and otherwise, but it soon loses steam and by the final act neither the jokes nor the plot of the film are working. Freshman Scott Dow directs a script from freshman screenwriter Tim […]
Here’s a new TV series called Z Nation that looks a lot like Walking Dead but with a slightly more defined plot arc – get the walking cure to the lab where they can stop the Z virus. What with the Walking Dead spinoff TV series, are we getting a little too ‘deaded’ here?
And here’s the last trailer for the fourth season of The Walking Dead before the series hits UK TV – but only on Fox for you cabled up types. Oh well, there’s always the box set.

Tiredly patched together from countless space adventures and walking dead ditties that have graced our sights previously, ‘The Last Days On Mars’ feels rather contrived and cockeyed in its low-budgeted lunacy. […]
An intelligent Zombie Apocalypse film, starring Brad Pitt no less. Boy, I sure did not see that one coming. This is a film that asks some absorbing questions and its answers are more intriguing than the questions. A big expensive film, costing $200M, it also is the best zombie film I have ever seen – not […]
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare takes the little app that could from a silly game for your phone to a full 3-D shooter fragfest as the battle of the back garden gets ugly. Watch the trailer and marvel at the idea of evil plants versus wicked zombies. Who is going to lose, we hear you […]
Bad relationships. I’m sure we’ve all had them and managed to get though to the other side. But in ‘Married With Zombies’, author Jesse Petersen takes it to a new level. Our lead characters, Sarah and David, are on the cusp of a breakdown. They rarely communicate and when they do, it’s to argue. Their […]
