SparkPeople Team Zombie Team Messageboard Halloween Movies No Halloween movie reviews this year? :( Thu, 29 Oct 2015 13:04:51 EST Zombie Cat Custody Battle The so-called "zombie cat" that seemingly came back to life after being buried is now at the center of a custody dispute between his original owner and the Tampa Bay Humane Society, according to the Humane Society. <BR> <BR> The cat, named Bart, made headlines after his owners reportedly found him hit by a car and buried him. Days later his owners reported the cat was found by a neighbor who returned the animal. <BR> <BR> According to the Tampa Bay Humane Center in Tampa, Florida, the cat w...

Who will get eaten next? <BR> <BR> Will Season 6 be titled The Rise of Rick, as his evil Governor wanna-be side takes control? <BR> <BR> Sadly, I probably will not know until next week.

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 18:39:14 EST Fifty Shades of Brains Capitalizing on the success of the Fifty Shades...novels (and movie!) is the parody book Fifty Shades of Brains. <BR> <BR> I just finished reading it & have to say it is a much easier read than the original ! Definitely tongue in cheek, until the tongue rots out anyway lol. Fri, 13 Mar 2015 17:51:16 EST DOGSTARDADDY Our leader is taking a Spark Break, to concentrate on his family. He denies having been bit. Our job is to make sure we keep up the defenses so he has a Team to return to. Tue, 10 Mar 2015 18:49:03 EST Stepping Away I know I haven't been around the board much, and for that I am sorry. Work has been frantic for the past few months, and sucking up every second of my free time. In order to focus a bit more effectively on that (and home) I have been spending far less time on line, including Spark. I think it is best for me to continue that track, and officially step away from Spark for a bit. <BR> We have done some great things with this group, and I know someone will step forward to lead. <BR> I have been ... Thu, 26 Feb 2015 16:34:41 EST what would it take How fit do you think a person would need to be in order to survive something like the walking dead. If there was fitness test, like for the military, what do you think it would consist of. <BR> Miles ran, push ups, pull ups, fence jumping, etc. <BR> Sun, 22 Feb 2015 17:26:53 EST New to the group Hi there, I'm just getting started in training for the zombie apocalypse. I've been talking about it for years and now it's time to make sure I have the stamina for it. <BR> <BR> I have completed 2 missions on the Zombies, Run 3 app. I'm liking the story. It helps keep me distracted from how long I'm on the treadmill. Hoping to survive the app and be in better shape when I'm done :) Tue, 17 Feb 2015 18:43:39 EST Walking Dead 5.9 What Happened And What's Going not even death enough to spare us from Beth's singing ? <BR> <BR> Poor Tyrese, not a good way to go. I didn't think they'd kill off another main character immediately, I thought they'd wait a few episodes. <BR> <BR> Wed, 11 Feb 2015 15:58:19 EST Tales From The Darkside Returns I remember very well the "Tales From The Darkside" series that ran from ’84 -’88. Word had come out that the series has been brought back to life, and that The CW has ordered a pilot episode. No word yet on if the show will officially make it into the fall schedule, but given how well horror has been doing lately, I don't think you need a magic 8 Ball to see that all signs point to yes. <BR> Who else loved the show? Thu, 5 Feb 2015 14:17:24 EST Walking Dead Spinoff Series Details We don't have much yet. A few actor/acress announcments, but nothing much. We did get a nice nugget this week tho. But now know that at least the first few episodes of the new series will be set in Los Angeles. <BR> What do you think? You ready for LA zombies? Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:37:45 EST The Walking Dead Cafe Thanks to the fact that this is a primary location for the Walking Dead TV series, Senoia, Georgia has become a bit of a tourist spot. So, of course, industry is beginning to sprout up around it. "The Woodbury Shoppe" is one spot where you can buy all sorts of WD stuff, and see props and sets from the show. And now we have a place to buy food. "The Walking Dead Cafe" is open for business. If anyone checks it out, be sure to post pictures for us! <BR> <BR> The Waking Dead Café <BR> 48 Main S... Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:33:18 EST Goosebumps Movie Update The new "Goosebumps" movie is well into production. In case you haven't heard, here is the premise: <BR> “In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goose... Thu, 4 Dec 2014 19:47:02 EST Walking Dead 5.8 Coda So did we all see that coming? Was it what you expected? <BR> <BR> I didn't think I would be sad to see her get killed off. But when it happened, and then when she was sobbing on "Talking Dead", I gotta admit, I was sad. <BR> <BR> The rest of the episode was decent, but not quite as big as I was hoping. I think you need a huge final episode when you aren't going to be on the air again for a few months. What did you think? Thu, 4 Dec 2014 19:41:06 EST And I Make 300 Hi! I just joined the team (I used to belong a long time ago under a different username) so I thought that 299 just seemed like a funky number for a team so I thought I would join and round out the number to 300 <em>211</em> Glad to join in on the team! Looking forward to chatting with you other zombie hunters! Mon, 1 Dec 2014 16:06:15 EST Walking Dead 5.6 Consumed Someone wake me up when this episode is over please? <BR> Blah Blah Blah Carol. Blah Blah Blah Daryl. <BR> Dear AMC: You wasted an episode when there are only three left (now two.) <BR> <BR> Am I wrong? Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:33:15 EST Walking Dead 5.5 Self Help I liked this episode. The big showdown with Eugene had to happen. Having read the novels, I had an idea of what the big reveal was. But I am curious: Were you surprised? <BR> What did you think?? Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:30:29 EST Walking Dead 5.4 "Slabtown" First weak episode we've seen this season. The story was fine, but I still don't really care about Beth all that much. Unfortunately, it looks like we have two episodes centered around her. <BR> What did you think? How about Carol showing up at the end, just as Beth was gonna ice that guy? Tue, 4 Nov 2014 16:55:44 EST Beth what is your take on where Beth is? Sun, 2 Nov 2014 10:30:04 EST Movie Review : The Skin I Live In In honor of dressing up as someone - or some thing - else for Halloween I chose The Skin I Live In to review; a psychological thriller/horror movie instead of a traditional horror film (mostly because I still have nightmares from last year's review of the zombie sheep movie, from the sheer awfulness of it). <BR> <BR> Written & directed by Pedro Almodovar and starring Antonio Banderas, the movie starts out innocently enough. A plastic surgeon has just announced his breakthrough in artificial ... Fri, 31 Oct 2014 19:41:59 EST Movie Review: Dawn of the Dead (1978) As I look back at what reviewers at the time said about the original 1978 “Dawn of the Dead”, I’m pretty amazed. Roger Ebert called it “One of the best horror films ever made -- and, as an inescapable result, one of the most horrifying.” Almost every review hailed it as a violent, funny, brilliant, terrifying film. I look back and remember it as the first zombie movie I saw in the theater. It probably damaged me for life. But man, as I recall seeing it as a teenager, it was it a bloody great... Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:20:11 EST Walking Dead 5.3 "Four Walls and a Roof" Alas, poor Bob. We knew that once he started getting more screen time, he was a goner. <BR> I thought the episode was a very good one. I did NOT see Gareth's death coming. <BR> <BR> I'm surprised they have split up the group, at least for a while. And where the heck is Morgan? We saw him in the trailer a while back!! <BR> <BR> What did you think of the episode? Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:31:47 EST The Final (2010) (I just recently saw this movie. It is put down as a horror/thriller. It is Rated R for sadistic violence and torture, language, sexual references, drug and alcohol use - all involving teens so I don't recommend this for younger children to view) <BR> <BR><BR>final&qpvt=the+final&FORM=VDRE#view=de<BR>tail&mid=508D603150F33AEFE4F4508D60315<BR>0F33AEFE4F4 <BR> <BR> THE FINAL: A group of high school outcasts (as they are known by) get revenge on the ... Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:13:38 EST Movie Review - Battle of the Damned "Killer robots, zombies...nice town you got here." - Max Gatling <BR> It's a crossover worthy of the golden age of B movies. Dolph Lundgren takes the lead as soldier-for-hire Max Gatling, sent to retrieve a magnate's daughter. A blockaded city, teeming with ravenous hordes, stands between him and a paycheck. The kicker? A team of deadly robots is dropped into the mix as Max leads a rapidly dwindling band of survivors through the doomed city. <BR> The afflicted citizens are a swift, re... Mon, 27 Oct 2014 22:56:33 EST twd 5.3 Just a quick note. My other half caught onto this. In the church, just after Sasha lays her head on the soon to be zombie Bob, cut back to the pulpit. On the board for the bible verses to be studied: <BR><BR>heck-out-the-killer-biblical-easter-eg<BR>gs-from-last-nights-the-walking-dead.php Mon, 27 Oct 2014 21:53:40 EST Walking Dead 5.2 "Strangers" So... what did you think? <BR> No major characters dead yet, the I think we can all agree Bob is a goner. This is a tricky one to write about. His storyline has sort of merged into Dale's storyline from the books, and I don't want to get too "spoilery". But those who have read the books know that Dale lasted way longer than he did in the TV show, and had a run in with the cannibals. <BR> I though the whole water zombie scene was kinda nuts. Never in a million years should they have gone into ... Mon, 20 Oct 2014 19:12:37 EST New Team Member I just recently about a month ago started watching The Walking Dead. LOVE IT. Got totally addicted. I don't get local channels and don't have cable. I use Hulu (I also like 'Once Upon a Time' and 'Bones'). So I'm a day or two behind every episode. <BR> <BR> Been on Sparkpeople for like 10 years, three different times. <BR> <BR> Is anyone interested in participating/starting/having a Zombiefied Fitness Challenge? I have a few ideas. <BR> Sat, 11 Oct 2014 14:00:05 EST Where would you make your first run to? Today is the first day. Day one of the end of the world. The Zombie Apocalypse. This is the first day you have to make a "supply run". One stop only. Where do you go and why? Sat, 11 Oct 2014 13:48:59 EST Halloween Horror Movie Review Signup Sheet Who is in this year? <BR> Here are the rules: Pick a movie that you love, but that other people might not have seen. Write up a mini review (just a couple of paragraphs will do.) If you can, add a link to a you tube clip at the bottom of the review. A trailer for the movie, or a clip would be great. Share one of your favorites with us, and who knows... your hidden gem may develop a few more followers. This year, I will ask everyone to post their reviews the week of Halloween. So feel free to ... Tue, 7 Oct 2014 16:24:52 EST Walking Dead 5.1 "No Sanctuary" How messed up is my life? I will be away this weekend, and unable to watch the season premier. I was invited to three different premier parties here in Philly, and can go to none of them. I'm recording it, so I can watch when I get back on Thursday. But I suspect I will need to be social media free until I can watch. <BR> So please feel free to begin the discussion without me. Tue, 7 Oct 2014 16:13:05 EST What Do We Think of "Z Nation"? With my massive lack of time, I haven't been able to actually watch the show yet. It is sitting patiently in my Tivo tho, waiting for me to come and get it. <BR> What do you think? Have you watched it yet? Can it compare to Walking Dead? Tue, 7 Oct 2014 16:09:05 EST No movie reviews this year ? Did the zombies finally breach our defenses and eat our fearless leader ? Mon, 6 Oct 2014 07:00:51 EST Zombie Outbreak training My local (back in Michigan) REI store is offering a zombie preparedness training class at the end of the month. Could be that other REI locations might offer the same. The one at this location, in Troy, is already full - not surprised! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>54 </link> Fri, 3 Oct 2014 15:05:30 EST Afterlife: Series 1 I read about this series in a BBC DVD magazine and decided to order it when I saw Amazon had it. It stars Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead's Rick) and Lesley Sharpe. I was very curious about this series. It is an excellent paranormal series. It ran for 2 years. I am really glad I ordered it. The series started in 2005. <BR> <BR> Andrew Lincoln's character (Professor Robert Bridge) tries to debunk the woman's gift of seeing ghosts (Allison Monday) and trying to help the ghosts/families f... Mon, 15 Sep 2014 12:41:55 EST Walking Dead Spinoff News There was talk a while back that there might be a Walking Dead spinoff series in the works.It was made official this week, when AMC placed the order for a pilot. The pilot is scheduled for production in late 2014. No details are being provided about the location and/or casting for the pilot. We only know that it is set in the same world at the same time, but presumably in another location. <BR> What do you think? Do we need two Walking Dead series? Fri, 5 Sep 2014 20:21:06 EST Walkling Dead on Broadcast TV One of the biggest complaints about Walking Dead has been that folks needed cable TV to see the show. Being on AMC limited their audience. That has now changed. Walking Dead is now in syndication, meaning local TV stations can buy the episodes. <BR> Here in Philly, the show will run on Wednesday night on the local FOX station. If you haven't been able to watch Walking Dead, now may be your chance. Fri, 5 Sep 2014 20:18:03 EST Hi! I'm a new member! My name is Heather. You can say I'm a doomsday believer. I believe in being prepared for anything apocalyptic. I have a bug out bag full of MRE's and other necessary survival stuff. The only thing that I am not prepared for is the physical part. I need to lose about 70 to 80 pounds. I really want to get a house somewhere so I can create an obstacle course in my backyard, but I live in an apartment with my husband right now.. so that won't be happening anytime soon. Thu, 21 Aug 2014 15:46:26 EST Pride and Prejudice and Zombies They have been talking about it for a long time, but "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is finally about to go to production. <BR> "As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring... Mon, 4 Aug 2014 16:38:23 EST New Walking Dead Trailer Just released Walking Dead Season 5 trailer. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> It has some interesting stuff in it, and teeters on the edge of spoilery. I don't think it reveals too much tho. Tell me what you think. Thu, 31 Jul 2014 20:10:13 EST SySf's New Zombie Show An interesting little bit about the new zombie show on SyFy. <BR> <link><BR>ailer-for-syfys-z-nation-arrives/ </link> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 19:14:40 EST The Dead 2 Trailer I still haven't seen the first one, but I heard good things about it. It is one of the first zombie films based in India, where there are LOTS and lots of people in small spaces. <BR> I guess the original did well enough to pay for a sequel. Here is the trailer. Thoughts? <BR> <link> </link> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 16:45:29 EST Evil Dead TV series As SD Comic Con progresses, lots of tidbits of information are leaking out. This week we hear that not only is there a TV series version of Evil Dead in the works, but the man himself, Bruce Campbell will be one of the stars. <BR> What do you think? Groovy? <BR> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 18:08:44 EST Daryl Dixon Love the new team Zombie picture Mon, 14 Jul 2014 09:18:06 EST Don't Be Afraid of No Ghosts! I think I will need to see this. <BR> On September 16th, the original "Ghostbusters" will be returning to theaters. Completely remastered and restored, the 1984 classic will introduce a whole new generation to the phrase "Who you gonna call???" <BR> What do you think? Worth the price of a ticket? Fri, 11 Jul 2014 17:41:03 EST Life After Beth Trailer New "Live After Beth" trailer just hit. I am not a big fan of zom-coms... but this looks funny. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> What do you think? Sun, 29 Jun 2014 21:53:27 EST Walking Dead Video Game I just finished playing this game. Has anyone else played it? Like the tv show, you really feel connected to the characters. Except all my favorite people seem to die. :( Sun, 29 Jun 2014 11:49:30 EST Spark Planner to disappear If you use the SP Planner/Calendar/Journal be aware it disappears on June 10! The message says " The Planner will be removed from SparkPeople on June 10. We recommend moving any Planner items to another calendar." Sat, 31 May 2014 02:06:39 EST In the Flesh Has anyone been watching the BBC Zombie series "In the Flesh"? It has a whole new spin to a zombie series. Mon, 12 May 2014 10:16:52 EST Do You Get Goosebumps? Been following the talk of the new "Goosebumps" movie. I remember reading these books as a kid, and the idea is a pretty good one. Heck, they could have a whole series of movies. Here is the plot: <BR> “Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad w... Thu, 1 May 2014 20:24:48 EST The Strain I gotta tell you, there are some pretty darn creepy bits and pieces being released for Guillermo del Toro's "The Strain" TV series. It doesn't begin until July on FX, but here are a few teaser clips. What do you think? <BR> <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Mon, 28 Apr 2014 18:09:13 EST Max Brooks' Extinction Parade I love what Max Brooks has done with zombies. If you've been around here for long, you know I think WWZ is one of the best zombie novels ever written. Well now he is turning his twisted eye to vampires.. and it looks like it's going to be on TV. <BR> "Extinction Parade" tells the story of the aristocratic vampire race and how their slow and self centered way of life causes them to miss the extinction of man happening in front of them as the zombie plague wipes out the human race. Sounds inte... Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:28:04 EST [REC] 4 I heard these were really good movies, and keep saying I'm going to watch them. The [REC] franchise is actually a foreign film (Spanish). It looks like they are bringing out a fourth one. I think these sort of compare really well to the Resident Evil films in feel, but they mix traditional zombie action with occult themes. <BR> This is the first trailer for the new film. It doesn't really show much, but it brings back at least one character from the first movie. <BR> <link> Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:19:43 EST 10 Year Run for Walking Dead? In an interview this week, Scott M. Gimple (the current show runner of Walking Dead") said that he could see the show going on for another 10 years at least. "I think if it went 10 years, if it went longer than that, it's possible that the cast — considering the amount of deaths on this cast and everything else — after 10, 12 years, it could shift into a whole new cast." <BR> So the show could go on... but it sounds like he's already considering the fact that Rick and the rest of the original... Wed, 23 Apr 2014 18:08:55 EST Wolves vs. Zombies We have lots of movies about zombies, and lots about wolves... but this one is a little different. The name of the film is "Yellowstone Falls". A mother wolf is separated from her mate as the pack flees to safety following the collapse of mankind in zombie plague. She is forced to defend her cubs from the oncoming swarm in a story that sounds a lot like a wolf version of "Walking Dead." But it could be kinda interesting, and would definitely be different. Production has not begun yet, but I w... Wed, 23 Apr 2014 18:00:02 EST SYFY Announces New Zombie Series Syfy announced this week that "Z Nation," a 13-episode zombie series will air this fall. The bad news? It's brought to you by the genius team that created "Sharknado." <BR> Here is what they say: <BR> In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood.

But I'm working (it's been a miserable week) so I might not get to watch for a day or two. <BR> Let the discussion begin without me tho. <BR> Was it an episode worthy of all the build up over the past few weeks? It felt to me like their feet have been kind of dragging for the past few weeks (like the "Where is Sophia" story that went on for ever.) <BR> What did you think?

The most shocking sad upsetting episode of the series. <BR> <BR> Wow. We all saw something coming with her, but.... Wow. Sun, 16 Mar 2014 23:47:55 EST Boy Scouts vs. Zombies We talked about this one a while back. But it looks like they are finally ready to start shooting shortly. <BR> Here is the plot: “The story centers on three high school Boy Scouts who must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town faces a zombie outbreak. Sheridan will play the budding honors student who is handsome and athletic but doesn’t know it yet, still lacking the confidence needed to talk to girls he likes.” <BR> <BR> What do you think? I might rent it from ... Fri, 14 Mar 2014 18:17:49 EST Walking Dead 4.13 Alone I liked this episode. I felt like we took some nice steps forward in the story finally. The stuff in the funeral parlor felt like a great big trap tho. Something wasn't quite right there. Was it a trap? Time will tell. <BR> We have the return of a character Rick has run into before. Nice. <BR> But what IS Terminus? <BR> Next week we are back with Carol and the kids. Should be good. <BR> What did you think of this week? Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:49:50 EST The Walking Dead Board Game We play alot of board games in our house. Clue. Life. Ticket to Ride. Seven Wonders. But I haven't tried the Walking Dead board game yet. Have you? <BR> I was reading this morning that they are working on an expansion pack for the game, that is set around the discovery of, fight to clean out, and struggle to control the Prison. <BR> Sounds like fun to me. Thoughts? Sun, 9 Mar 2014 04:42:52 EST Afflicted I'm not a huge fan of the found footage/hand camera type storytelling. But this one looks kind of interesting. It is released in April. <BR> Here is the story: Two best friends set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted." <BR> Check out this trailer and tell me what you think. <BR> <link> Tue, 4 Mar 2014 18:51:06 EST Walking Dead 4.12 Still An interesting episode. I'm not sure yet if I liked it or not. Lots of character reveal on two of our main characters. Some decent zombie action (at the golf club) and Daryl using a 4 iron to tee off the top of a zombie skull. <BR> I think it was a bit odd and out of character for Beth to suddenly need to get drunk. And I don't know of anyone who takes their first big sip of moonshine without coughing a little bit of it up . (I spent a few years in Roanoke, VA. I know my moonshine.) <BR> Wha... Tue, 4 Mar 2014 18:45:36 EST Hey there!! <em>524</em> my name is Connie and I'm in Charleston, SC. I was looking for a page like this when I came across this one on my friends page. I love The Walking Dead! Most Zombie shows actually! I look forward to chatting with y'all!! Tue, 4 Mar 2014 16:09:29 EST Walking Dead 4.11 "Claimed" I didn't like this one as much as I did last week. The stuff with Abraham was good, but everything with Rick in the house seemed like wasted screen time. Unless.... the dude we saw sitting on the porch comes turns out to be a character later. Time will tell. <BR> <BR> Next week we see Daryl and Beth. <BR> Thoughts? Wed, 26 Feb 2014 17:47:24 EST "The Cel" Starts Shooting We've been talking about it for a while, but shooting for the movie version of Stephen King's "Cell" started this week. The book was released in 2006, but now that zombies are hot, it was only a matter of time. It's got some big names.... John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman, and Owen Teague. (I love anything John Cusack does.) <BR> Here is the story: <BR> “Artist Clayton Riddell had been in Boston negotiating a successful deal to sell his comic book project. His joy at finally ...

Crazy test to see what character you most relate to in TWD. <BR> <BR> I'm Mischone apparently, although my weapon of choice will alway be a gun. <BR> <BR> I laughed at some of the weird questions they asked to make that determination ("Maxwell's Silver Hammer" has always been my favorite Beetles song.) <BR> <BR> Enjoy! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>ing+Dead+Character?result=6R6nOuFcnUn </link> Wed, 26 Feb 2014 05:59:37 EST Fan of Daryl Dixon? Norman Reedus has just signed to star in the new Robert Kirkman produced sci-fi movie, "Air." The movie reportedly tells the story of two custodial workers that take care of a cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout. Are there zombies? Got me. But the story sounds kinda cool. Thu, 20 Feb 2014 17:46:09 EST Walking Dead 4.10 "Inmates" I got to the episode a few days late. But I really liked this one. Liked it way better than last week. <BR> Glad to see Carol back. I wonder if we will ever tie up with Tyreese the reason she was banished. Little blonde girl is REALLY creepy... like serial killer creepy. Hopefully Maggie and Glen get back together soon. <BR> So what did you think? <BR> Thu, 20 Feb 2014 17:38:23 EST Zombie Beavers Two words you don't normally hear together. <BR> <link> </link> Tue, 11 Feb 2014 14:42:23 EST Walking Dead 4.9 "After" It was a very interesting episode. It almost seemed like they were rebooting the series, in a way. For the first time in a long time, I kinda feel like I don't know what is going to happen next. <BR> <BR> I honestly thought for a minute Rick might be a walker. I honestly thought Carl might get his leg bitten. Michonne walking in the middle of the zombie herd made me very nervous. <BR> <BR> It wasn't a "balls to the wall" episode, but I thought it was one of the better ones in a while. <BR> ...

A premier episode of the DC comics iZombie book has been ordered by the CW Network, with the intent to make it into a series. I've not read the book, but it's been around for a few years. It tells the tale of Gwen Dylan, a gravedigger and zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain – both to keep from going all zombie and to keep her own memories intact. As a result, Gwen’s mind is crowded with the dead person’s thoughts. She helps solve the mysteries surrounding their death,...

"Life after Beth" tells the story of a boy/girl breakup that gets kinda weird when the girl dies from a snake bite, then comes back. At first, she seems fine, but as they try to patch their relationship back together, new challenges arise as she starts to want a different kind of cuddle. <BR> It's at Sundance right now, and getting good reviews. It should be getting theatrical... Fri, 24 Jan 2014 17:43:30 EST George A. Romero’s new Zombie Book I posted some stuff about this a while back, but in case you missed it, George A. Romero has a new zombie comic coming out at the end of the month. Are they cashing in on the Walking Dead buzz? Well.. maybe. But it's George Romero... so cut him some slack! <BR> The first issue of "Empire of the Dead" will be available on January 22nd.

Well on Feb. 4th, the collector’s edition of Night Of The Demons will be released on DVD and Blu Ray.

Tue, 17 Dec 2013 17:55:05 EST World War Z Sequel As most of you know, I had very little positive to say about the WWZ movie. They took an amazing book and flushed it down the toilet. <BR> Now comes word that the go-ahead has been given to move on a sequel. I'm sure some clever person will come up with a letter of the alphabet after Z. But anyhow, Juan Antonio Bayona, has been picked to direct. His previous works include "The Orphanage" and "The Impossible" with Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Can't wait.

The Gov. and his band of women folk ditch the camp, steal a gassed up car, and head out of what seems to be the only road. They can't get through because of.. muddy zombies. They return back to the camp... and no one notices? Kinda like how no one notices the mysterious deaths of nearly every able bodied man (except for the dude who happens to have a tank?? Really?...

Some people loved it, some people hated it. I thought it was interesting to see the character of The Governor develop. I am trusting that it will be relevant. <BR> <BR> I think it's interesting to see that he almost has a split personality type thing going on, and that he struggles with keeping it under control. <BR> <BR> What did you think? <BR> Tue, 19 Nov 2013 16:29:31 EST Zombie Runner I'm new to running.

Which is about its only redeeming feature...great landscapes. <BR> <BR> Our story opens with father and son (and dog) herding the sheep while zooming about on 4 wheelers. Dad is training his son Henry, who is clearly the golden haired child (literally). Then we see the older dark h...

I watched it last night. It is entirely in a foreign language, so you must read the English subtitles, but it's a very poignant story. I wondered what connection the man the young girl travels with had to her, and don't want to ruin the story for you, but it is currently on Netflix.

In this house live two kind, thoughtful, sweet old ladies, Martha and Abby Brewster who have developed a very bad habit.

I joined this team a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had time to introduce myself. <BR> <BR> I enjoy all things horror. It's never the gore that gets to me; it's always the psychological elements. I haven't really seen anything that's truly scared me in a long while since most new moves rely on blood and guts. <BR> <BR> I'm also a big fan of sci-fi/fantasy as well (Doctor Who, LOTR, etc).

Good zombie action, but not over the top. The walkers are definitely getting ripe. Lots of good craft beer in that store. Beth's hug lasted just a bit longer than I was comfortable for. I like Hershel's new magic leg. Daryl is a rock star. Harry Potter is a zombie now, and going to bring about a world of hurt next episode. <BR> I'm wondering if they are going to spin Michonne off in some way, and give h...

Give it a watch. <BR> <BR> I would rate it A++. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Wed, 9 Oct 2013 17:53:03 EST Supernatural Anyone watch the new season premiere of Supernatural last night? I thought it was pretty good. Supernatural is one of my favorite shows. The last couple of seasons however I was thinking it was just getting drawn out and kind of boring, but I still watched it every week and still will. Hopefully they can keep it interesting. Wed, 9 Oct 2013 12:22:53 EST Buy A Walkie Talkie I spent the day today in my yearly company ordered safety class. It was actually pretty interesting this year, as they focused alot on terrorism (following all of the "Occupy" stuff from last year.) <BR> The instructors were talking about how every person should invest in a good walkie talkie. One that can reach five miles or so. He argues that in the case of a real disaster (flood, earthquake) the cel towers will probably not be working. And in the case of a man made disaster, local law enf...

One of my favorite shows is The Walking Dead, and I also love pretty much all zombie movies! Wed, 2 Oct 2013 13:25:22 EST I'd be one of the first to go... Yep. If I had to run to save my life (or climb, or squeeze someplace to hide...) I'd be in trouble. The idea of not being able to help my kiddo if I had too, that bugs me too. We (my kiddo and I) went for a walk today and listened to the first episode of the Zombies, Run 5k app. Now he wants to hear more of the story, so we may be trying to do this on weekends (the days are getting too short to walk/run before or after work).

They will be available at AMC.COM and also on youtube. <BR> In the three webisodes (7 to 10 minutes each), the lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul and Karina, speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station, as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound.

The launch date is set or fall 2015. <BR> Current "Walking Dead" showrunners Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert have all signed on. <BR> It will be interesting, because this will be all new, original content.

Thu, 5 Sep 2013 18:17:08 EST Tom Savini's "Death Island" If there is anyone attached to the zombie genre besides George Romero, it has to be Tom Savini. His zombie makeup is legendary, and he now runs a horror makeup school in California. <BR> <BR> Now comes word that he is stepping back into the movie making business with the film "Dead Island". Casting has begun, and photography is expected to start in the next few months.

The title was changed at the last moment, and because of that, the copyright was lost. This immediately put the film into public domain, allowing anyone to make a movie with the same title. <BR> This is relevant because a cast was announced this week for "Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D." The film is being... Fri, 16 Aug 2013 18:26:08 EST Birth of the Living Dead A new, very interesting documentary on George Romero and how he put together the "Night of the Living Dead" film is coming out soon. "Birth of the Living Dead" will examine how the Romero film reflected the post Vietnam turmoil that was rumbling across America at the time. <BR> <BR> It will be released in November, and since the IFC channel is involved in distribution, hopefully we will see it available on cable. <link> </link> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 16:39:53 EST Six Flags Zombie Run In October this year, SIX FLAGS parks will be doing a zombie run event. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> Looks kinda interesting.

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 14:52:29 EST George Romero's Zombie Autopsies I had heard a year or so ago that George Romero had acquired the rights to make a film script out of Steven C. Schlozman’s "The Zombie Autopsies." I read the book a while back, and really enjoyed it. It's a worthy summer read if you still have room for some reading these days. <BR> Anyhow, word was released this week that the screenplay has been completed, and George is shopping it around to movie studios, to see if anyone will...bite. I would love to see George back in the movie making busi... Tue, 13 Aug 2013 16:21:24 EST Dusk Till Dawn TV Series I thought the first "Dusk till Dawn" movie was awesome. Had everything you need in a grindhouse movie. Foul language, monsters, nudity, drinking, Cheech Marin and Harvey Keitel.Now word that they are making it into a TV series. But unlike the poor Zombieland series, the folks from the original film will be doing the new series. Robert Rodriguez will write, produce, and direct the series. They have reportedly just begun shooting. Look for it this October. <BR> Here is the trailer from the mov...

Not zombies.. but not human. <BR> On August 23rd, IFC will be bringing the movie "Devil’s Pass" to theaters and VOD. The trailer looks very Blair Witch-y. Kinda hard to explain.

We also now know that there will be multiple versions. <BR> Ok.. you got your DVD, your Blu Ray, Blu Ray 3D, and your On Demand. The various DVD format releases will each include some level of extras. The more you spend, the more you get. There will also be an "un-rated" version, for those of you who crave an extra 15 seconds of gore, or a two second shot of some zombie girl's boob. <BR> Ugh. I hav... Tue, 6 Aug 2013 19:10:56 EST American Horror Story : Coven I know I need to go back and watch the first two seasons. I've watched most of season one. I just sort of fell off the wagon. <BR> Anyhow, details are starting to trickle out about Season 3 of AHS. Called "Coven", it deals with a migration of Salem witches to the South. Jessica Lange reportedly plays the lead, with lots of actors from the first two seasons appearing. We know that Kathy Bates plays a character named Madame LaLurie, “a Louisiana-born socialite and serial killer who kept slaves... Tue, 6 Aug 2013 19:03:05 EST The Path to Pet Sematary One of my favorite scary movies of all time is Pet Sematary.. It is based on a King book, but with very little gore or blood, is a reeeally creepy movie. <BR> Now comes word that a documentary is being produced about the film. <BR> “Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary" is an independent documentary about the making of Pet Sematary. It includes the origins of the story, the stories of cast and crew (including one of my favorite actors, Fred Gwynne,) memories of the Maine locals who h... Tue, 6 Aug 2013 18:20:08 EST Where Do You Stand on Zombie Babies? Word has it that Walking Dead season 4 will have an episode with a zombie baby. No.. we don't know if it's the baby of Rick/Shane/Lori, tho I'd be reeeally surprised if that's the case. <BR> <BR> Now, we saw a little girl zombie in episode 1, season 1, but other than Sophia (and Penny) we haven't seen many little kids. In the "Dawn of the Dead" remake, we saw a badly done zombie baby. But if WD is going to tackle it, then I suspect at least it'll be done well. <BR> <BR> What do you think t... Thu, 1 Aug 2013 11:57:53 EST Brain Eating Parasite in Lakes This is a serious and real story from my newscast today. I pass it along because it oddly enough makes me think of the types of viruses you often see people meddling with in zombie movies. <BR> A 12 year old girl in Arkansas is fighting for her life after going swimming in a lake, and contracting a rare, but deadly brain-eating parasite. <BR> Kali Hardig is in critical condition with a rare meningitis caused by the microscopic amoeba.

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 16:13:15 EST Making Money With Zombies It is a few weeks old, but an interesting article about how Hollywood is getting a little gunshy about making zombie movies.

"Dawn of the Dead" was a great sequel, taking place in a shopping mall. The same social commentary that addressed racism in "Night" addressed commercialism in "Dawn". <BR> Now word has come out that the ORIGINAL sequel (not the remake) is being transferred...

According to the description it picks up the story of Danny Torrance, from The Shining, in his middle years. Haunted by his experiences and his father's legacy of alcoholism, violence and madness Danny hasn't been doing well until he finally settles in a small town in New Hampshire, joins AA and gets a job at a nursing home where his "shining" is able to help the patients.

I'm not getting a warm fuzzy feeling about the upcoming season of "Walking Dead." They fired the showrunner, and the way they handled the final episode was a big letdown, I thought. <BR> Now they have announced that season four will be more focused on character building. Here are some excerpts from an interview with Kirkman recently: <BR> <BR> "... a much more character-based story. It’s going to be more focused on who these characters are and what they’re going through. To a ce... Mon, 15 Jul 2013 14:51:35 EST A Re-Remake Of A Romero Classic Because we can't get enough of crappily made Romero movie remakes, we have an article revealing that rights to "Day of The Dead" have been purchased, and there is a script in the works. <BR> Now yes... there already WAS a remake of DOTD a few years ago, but that ain't stopping them.and here is the quote from the article I like the best: <BR> "We want to keep it as close to the Romero version as possible to make sure that his fans are happy.

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 08:01:28 EST Wii ZombieU Fails You don't see many stories where zombies lose a company money. But maybe it wasn't the zombie's fault. <BR> Word has it that ZombiU, one of the most popular launch titles for the system with players, was not profitable. In fact, it lost money for the company. There are no plans for a sequel. <BR> <BR> Was the failure with the game, or the system? Anyone played it?

Thoughts? Tue, 9 Jul 2013 14:31:29 EST R.I.P.D. This one has been on my radar for a bit. It was supposed to have been released a while back, but was bumped to late July. <BR> So think "Men in Black" meets "Ghostbusters". Based on a Dark Horse Entertainment comic, the movie stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges. So long as it doesn't take itself too seriously, it could be great fun. I'm a big Jeff Bridges fan, so it has potential. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Mon, 8 Jul 2013 13:49:29 EST Walker Stalker Convention November 1-3 at the Atlanta Convention Center will be the first "Walker Stalker" Convention. This would be a con devoted entirely to Walking Dead and zombies. <BR> Lots of Walking Dead cast members and production people are already booked. <BR> <BR> If you are in or near Atlanta around that time, it looks like it is definitely worth checking out: <BR> <link> </link> Mon, 8 Jul 2013 13:27:51 EST Odd Commercial - Awesome Zombies Gotta say..the zombies are really well done in this... <BR> <link> </link> Thu, 4 Jul 2013 17:21:39 EST Cockneys vs Zombies The film Cockneys vs Zombies has been acquired for distribution in the states finally. It should hit theatres in August, then cable probably very soon. It's a UK zombie comedy with a surprisingly good cast. <BR> Here is a clip: <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Wed, 3 Jul 2013 17:15:25 EST Walking Dead Season 4 Preview Weekend AMC has announced The Walking Dead Season 4 Preview Weekend, hosted by Kevin Smith.

These are followed by Season 2 on Fri., and Season 3 on both Sat. and Sun. Each day of this four-day event begins at 1PM. Fri, 28 Jun 2013 20:22:40 EST Zombie Race : Area Z It seems like you can't shake a dead limb without hitting a zombie race these days. Area Z is a newly announced “Zombie Apocalypse Event” that will start in New York later this year. Here is pert of the press release: <BR> <BR> “Production company 40-30 Productions announced the launch of Area Z, a thrilling new adventure concept that will outbreak across the nation this summer, in multiple cities including New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta. In Area Z, participants will find themselves in a ... Fri, 28 Jun 2013 18:24:55 EST Anyone Watching "Under The Dome"? I intended to watch the first episode, but never got to it. I think it's available free online tho. <BR> <BR> Anyone been watching the miniseries on CBS? I've liked most of the other King adaptations. Thu, 27 Jun 2013 16:28:50 EST World War Z Sequel What letter comes after Z? <BR> Given the fact that World War Z made $66 million in its first weekend (which was the biggest opening weekend ever for a zombie movie) it should come as no surprise that Paramount is interested making a sequel. <BR> No details yet, of course. <BR> I still haven't seen the movie. Maybe this week. <BR> Tue, 25 Jun 2013 18:07:18 EST Poltergeist Remake Coming I've been hearing rumblings about this for a while, but it was confirmed this week that the "Poltergeist" remake has been given the go-ahead. <BR> I'm not sure how I feel about this. I hate seeing movies remade. I can't believe Hollywood has so few new ideas that they need to just remake old stuff. "Poltergeist" was a good, scary movie for its time. <BR> But the more I read about it, the more it catches my interest. It will be produced by Sam Raimi (“Evil Dead”) from a screenplay by Pulitze... Mon, 24 Jun 2013 18:19:10 EST Zombieland Dies It has been confirmed that will not move ahead with the new Zombieland TV series. The pilot was released along several other original pilots in April, but reaction to the episode was less than positive. So there will be no episodes beyond the first. <BR> It's a shame that a TV series can live or die based on one episode (that was poorly distributed.) That having been said, I wonder how many fans of the film and the genre ever actually got to see it. I know I didn't, tho I wish I ha... Mon, 24 Jun 2013 18:06:50 EST Arnold Schwarzenegger Zombie Movie It has been confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger has been signed to play the role of Maggie’s father in "Maggie" a zombie story that follows a family whose daughter has been infected. Shooting is expected to begin this fall. Chloe Moretz (Hugo, Kick-Ass) is reported to be in talks for the title role. <BR> Here is the story... it sounds really interesting: <BR> <BR> Maggie is a 16-year old girl from a town in middle America who becomes infected by a zombie. It will take six months for Maggi... Mon, 24 Jun 2013 18:01:50 EST Andrew Lincoln Interview Can't wait for your Walking Dead fix? <BR> There was a great interview with Rick himself, Emmy nominee Andrew Lincoln.

I spent the week in the desert, scouting possible safe locations. It's amazing how much of a natural barrier to zombies the wilderness can be. Anyhow, connecting from the back of a horse proved a bit more challenging than I'd anticipated. <BR> <BR> I promise I'll catch everyone up on the zombie news as soon as I re-hydrate.

Thu, 6 Jun 2013 12:05:29 EST Prince of Darkness Lots of old movies, hidden away for years, are popping up these days for the first time on DVD/Blu Ray. One of my favorites is John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness." <BR> Lots of people these days don't give John Carpenter the credit he deserves. "Halloween" was an amazing movie for its time, and really set the stage for hundreds of copycat films. Now "Prince of Darkness" was a true step into the horror genre. After all, we're talking about releasing Satan himself into the world. We don't hav... Tue, 4 Jun 2013 14:07:22 EST Great Podcast We here at the Dogstar Compound love Neil deGrasse Tyson. He is a very very smart man. He's kinda a youngish, black, funny Carl Sagan. I watch his youtube video podcasts, and listen to his audio pieces on iTunes. This week, part one of two on zombies. <BR> "There’s no escaping the Zombie Apocalypse when Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews Max Brooks, the world’s leading “authority” on these nonexistent killers.

Sun, 2 Jun 2013 11:12:18 EST World War Z Movie Coming Soon The new "World War Z" movie comes out on June 21st. <BR> Anyone who has been following my writings about this film knows that I am crushingly disappointed that they appears to have turned an amazing book into a piece of overstimulating junk. <BR> That having been said, clips are beginning to dribble out, and I will post them. <BR> Here is one released this week. For the record <BR> 1) No major part of the book takes place in Philadelphia <BR> 2) No part of the film whatsoever was shot in P...

Wed, 29 May 2013 12:11:23 EST Evil Dead on DVD We've talked about the Evil Dead reboot here a bunch, so I wanted to pass along that Sony has announced that Evil Dead will be released to Blu-ray and DVD on July 16th. <BR> <BR> Interestingly enough tho, I don't see any mention of an "uncut" version. I know they were required to edit the film down to get it rated R. Wonder if there will be a second release later in the year. Tue, 28 May 2013 16:29:02 EST You Can Be In The Human Centipede 3 This has nothing to do with zombies. And I have zero interest in watching any of these movies.

Thu, 23 May 2013 18:26:11 EST Con Yet another reason to hate bridal showers: having to go to one this past weekend made me miss Motor City Comic Con. <BR> <BR> In attendance? Stan Lee, Edward James Olmos (I know there have to be some other BSG fans on this team), Cary Elwes, and, oh, just some guy named Norman Reedus. <BR> (Who apparently stayed past closing time to give everyone in his line a chance to meet him: <link><BR>-one-who-got-into-motor-cuty-comic-con<BR>-on-saturday/ </link> )... Tue, 21 May 2013 23:16:41 EST Fast Zombies vs. Slow Zombies I was reading an interesting article today, discussing the speed in "Steps Per Second" of old zombies compared to new zombies. Yea... I read some weird... stuff. Anyhoo...The measure of speed, SPS, was compared in older classic zombie films against newer films, and the difference is pretty amazing. <BR> <BR> If you set your baseline at one step per second, you are at Romero's Night of the Living Dead (original.) In that category, you have Shawn of the Dead and the World War Z book, which wi... Tue, 21 May 2013 20:14:41 EST The Incredible Melting Man You kids with your roller skates and your rap music may have never heard of this one, but it is a classic in the DSD movie vault, and I am psyched. It was announced this week that "The Incredible Melting Man" will be released to Blu-ray on July 30th. An awesomely gory movie for its time (1977) funny in a b-movie way, but with lots of intensity. I'm sure it will hit the Redbox machine, and Netflix quickly. Here is the plot : <BR> <BR> Steve West is the sole survivor of a space mission to Satu... Tue, 21 May 2013 18:21:00 EST Plants vs. Zombies Adventures If you're anything like me (and for your sake, I hope you're not) you love Popcap's Plants vs. Zombies game. <BR> <BR> Well, even tho we are still a few months away from Plants vs. Zombies 2, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures was released today on Facebook. I haven't had a chance yet today to check it out, but it looks like there are a bunch of new zombies, and their direction can vary, adding a real twist to the game. I'll be checking it out tonight. <BR> <BR> If you are a PvZ fan, let me kno... Mon, 20 May 2013 18:26:49 EST Resident Evil Revelations I haven't really played the Resident Evil games. Nothing against them. I respect the franchise. I just don't really do zombie shoot'em ups. <BR> But the newest release comes out this week. There is a trailer <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> Who has played the games? Thoughts? Mon, 20 May 2013 18:21:43 EST Zombie Western Not much info yet, but an interesting tidbit just popped onto the DSD zombie radar. Production will begin in July for a new "zombie western" to be shot in Australia called "Bullets For The Dead" Here is the thing tho... it has a confirmed $2M budget. <BR> So whatever it is, it could be kinda cool. <BR> I don't think I've ever seen a zombie western. How about you? Mon, 20 May 2013 18:15:32 EST John Carpenter's "Body Bags" This ranks pretty high on the DSD Cool Scale. <BR> In the 1990's horror icon John Carpenter was working on a series for Showtime. It never got picked up, but they have taken the parts that were shot, and cobbled together an anthology type movie (like Creepshow.) <BR> The movie features three main segments, directed by John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper, who also appear in the movie, along with Wes Craven and Sam Raimi (all horror legends.) <BR> Stars include Robert Carradine, David Naughton, Stac... Tue, 14 May 2013 12:27:15 EST Zombies Invade India A trailer has just crossed for "The Dead 2: India." It is, clearly, a sequel to "The Dead", which got really good reviews. It's worth checking out. Good old fashioned slow zombies.. and it's set in India, which I've never seen before. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Tue, 14 May 2013 12:20:54 EST Dracula Series I liked "The Tudors." I know Jonathan Rhys Meyers is one of those "troubled" actors with various substance abuse issues, but he was sooo good in that. So when I heard he was picked as the lead for NBC's new "Dracula" series, I was willing to give it a shot. Their first trailer was released this week, and I gotta say it looks pretty good.

Sat, 11 May 2013 18:50:46 EST Zombie Run Atlanta There is a Zombie Run in Atlanta on June 8. It just so happens that I will be just across the border in SC that weekend and I've always (well for 2 years anyway) wanted to do a zombie run and my training plan is only 3-4 miles that weekend. <BR> <BR> So....anyone interested? Fri, 10 May 2013 06:09:52 EST Believe It doesn't have zombies, but it looks interesting. NBC has just picked up a new JJ Abrams series for the fall, called "Believe". It sounds a bit like "Heroes." Here is the plot: <BR> <BR> Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, even predict the future… Since she was two years old, Bo has had gifts she could neither fully understand, nor control.

Thu, 9 May 2013 18:18:06 EST "In The Flesh" Update I mentioned it a while ago when it first popped up, but here is an update on BBC's new zombie mini-series "In The Flesh." <BR> Here is the official plot: <BR> "In The Flesh explores a post-zombie-uprising - from the zombie’s perspective. The series follows 18-year-old Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry, Anna Karenina, Quartet), a PDS sufferer who, now treated with the medication Neurolax, is deemed ready to return to his parents’ home in the small village of Roarton.

Not zombies this time... aliens. It is the finale of the trilogy that began with "Shaun of the Dead" and next "Hot Fuzz". Both of those movies were hits in the Dogstar Mansion. I'm sure we will be in line to see this. Wed, 8 May 2013 18:09:51 EST RIP Ray Harryhausen A man who's vision and talent set the bar for every monster movie you've ever seen.

In case you don't know, Glen Mazzara is the recently fired showrunner for The Walking Dead. Both the book and the movie version of "The Shining" are pretty darn creepy (and VERY different, if you've never compared the two.) Funny that Stephen King has wrapped up writing The Shining sequel 'Doctor Sleep'. Guess they think it... Thu, 11 Apr 2013 18:27:34 EST The Zompocalypse Is Coming Try saying that fast three times. No really. Try it. I'll wait. <BR> <BR> On May 4th, over 1,000 cities the world over will be participating in a Global Zombie Walk. The Zompocalypse is upon us.

It tells the back story of the Walking Dead character we have come to hate. <BR> <link><BR>ad:_Rise_of_the_Governor </link> <BR> <BR> It doesn't quite gel with some of the things we've seen in the TV show, especially in one very serious way regarding Penny. But it's an interesting version of the short story behind the Governor. <BR> I don't thi... Wed, 10 Apr 2013 18:27:25 EST Walking Dead Lunch Box I'm not sure if a kid carrying a Walking Dead lunchbox would get beaten up. Maybe the other kids would be afraid of him. But there are some cool new Walking Dead products out. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> Which would YOU buy?

Tue, 9 Apr 2013 09:30:06 EST They Are Coming To Get Me The official race course of "The Walking Dead", is coming to a city near me. The Walking Dead: Escape is coming to Philly. Yes, it is the "real" obstacle course, filled with Kirkman and Nicotero zombies. You have Rick's hospital, The Prison, and The Governor's Gladiators sections. You need to crawl, climb, and fight your way through. <BR> But .......... I don't know. Doing a course like this inside a building sounds.. well. a little unsafe. I need to think about this one a little bit more, <B... Mon, 8 Apr 2013 21:29:47 EST How did you spend your Sunday evening.. How did you spend the first of too-many Sunday evenings without TWD? <BR> <BR> We watched the evening news (TWD airs at 6:00 pm here) then tuned in to watch Vikings on the History Channel 'live' instead of recording it and watching it later. <BR> C~ Mon, 8 Apr 2013 14:58:52 EST Scariest Game Ever?

Sadly, this was not one of them. There were a few small high points. Carl telling his father to get out of his face. A very intense first 5 minutes of the Gov. beating the hell out of Milton. The surprise Rick's group had waiting for the attackers at the prison. <BR> But the bad was so much more... bad. Almost every... Mon, 1 Apr 2013 18:25:22 EST Hit "Like" if you agree....

A new chapter in Walking Dead unfolds. I'd say this season has been better, on the whole, than last season. <BR> Who lives and who dies will dictate the direction when they pick back up in October. Who do you most want to survive? Mon, 25 Mar 2013 22:32:23 EST Zombie Poop I wanted to leave you with a topic to chat about while I am away for the week. <BR> <BR> Do zombies poop? Think about it. Discuss. Mon, 25 Mar 2013 22:28:26 EST DSD is AFK I will be away the bulk of the week scouting future safe houses in a very rural part of Maryland. I suspect net access will be spotty, so I may be out of contact for a bit. Hopefully I will be back in time to watch the last Walking Dead of the season, and first Game of Thrones. Be good, and watch out for biters. <BR> Mon, 25 Mar 2013 22:26:13 EST Walking Dead 315 : This Sorrowful Life Here is the trailer: <BR> <link><BR>s/sneak-peek-episode-315-the-walking-d<BR>ead-this-sorrowful-life </link> <BR> <BR> I'm sure the episode has to be better than last week.

He convinces Sabrina to hatch a spell to bring back the pooch, but when Hotdog bites Jughead, he soon craves flesh. <BR> <BR> This sounds so twisted it might be good! Better keep it away from the kids tho.

Don't walk by, give it a try!! <BR> <BR> With just three episodes left in Walking Dead this season and the battle of the prison on the horizon, it's time for DSD's "Walking Dead Dead Pool." <BR> <BR> Who will be the next major character to die? How many people will be pushing up daisies between now and the end of the season? <BR> <BR> I think there will be lots of death in the final episode. My guess is both Maggie and Beth, plus Hershell.

OK, so I am sooooo happy to find a place where I can talk about zombies and The Walking Dead and crazy questions that I come up with without being looked at like I need a straight jacket!!! And I am glad to see other women who are into this also......for whatever reason at work I seem to be the only woman that likes zombies and it is a real buzzkill at times when they are talking about some Real housewives of some city thing and I go hey, did ya see the Talking Dead last night???! <BR> <B...

I haven't decided if I like it yet or not. <BR> <BR> Rapper Saint Warhead will be releasing his new album Zombie Kisses as a free digital download later this month. Zombie Kisses is a 6-track "zombie apocalypse" themed hip hop EP. The first cut, "Blue Collar Monsters", has a music video, and includes zombie strippers (who are not naked, making the clip safe for work, but the setting a bit pointless.) <BR> <BR> The music video for the LP can be found on the You Tub... Thu, 7 Mar 2013 12:25:26 EST Daylight Savings Time.....

Check those batteries and have one location for spare batteries so you are not digging ... Thu, 7 Mar 2013 06:36:43 EST Face Off Evil Dead Not sure if anyone watches Face Off on Syfy but I guess this week's challenge is going to be inspired by the upcoming Evil Dead movie. Should be pretty interesting to see what the contestants come up with. Thu, 7 Mar 2013 03:04:42 EST State of Decay Not sure if there are any gamers here but I just read in my Xbox 360 magazine that a new zombie survival game is currently being worked on called State of Decay. It's supposedly an open ended game where you can follow the story or go off on you own to create your own method of survival. To me it kinda sounds like Skyrim........but with zombies!!!!! It'll be released on Xbox 360 and PC according to their website, no release date yet. I think I'll definitely check it out. <BR> <BR> Wed, 6 Mar 2013 19:48:44 EST
