Red Dead Zombies

This morning, Kotaku did an interesting article announcing that an expansion pack for Red Dead Redemption (slated for October 26) will be zombie-themed.  Here’s the trailer: I didn’t pick up Red Dead Redemption because I thought Red Dead Revolver was just sort of “meh.”  However, given this new development, I may grab a copy afterContinue reading “Red Dead Zombies”

Spooky Empire 2010

Here’s a picture of me and fellow Zombie Research Society Advisory Board member Dr. Steven Schlozman at the Spooky Empire horror convention in Orlando over the weekend: As always, Spooky Empire was an incredibly well-run event with many fun symposia, events, and musical concerts.  My favorite part was meeting readers.

They Shoot Zombies, Don’t They?

Last week, I watched the 1969 film They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?.  Electing to do so was not a decision at which I arrived easily. I’d heard Horses was a sad movie directed by Sydney Pollack, which more-or-less sounded promising.  I enjoy sad movies when they’re well done (like The Straight Story and Dancer in the Dark), and IContinue reading “They Shoot Zombies, Don’t They?”
