Animated Ride Through The Evil Dead Movies

This devilishly good cartoon version of the Evil Dead saga is brought to you by Daniel Kanemoto, whose videos play out like a digitally animated tour of the movies, as if you’re watching from the seat of some nightmarish roller coaster.
So strap in and enjoy the ride, but when Ash starts waving his boom stick around you’d better watch out!

So Bath Salts Aren’t To Blame For The Zombie Apocalypse?!?

Zombie Apocalypse: Face-Eating In China 

While I realize that sometimes news stories can get blown out of proportion once the national media gloms onto them, I’m not sure what to think about this latest one.
The newest “zombie” story to come out is from China, where a bus driver reportedly stopped his bus in traffic, blocking a woman’s car. He then got off the bus, climbed up on the hood of the woman’s car, and began beating at her windshield. When she got out of the car in a panic, he jumped on her and began chewing her face. Allegedly, several people tried to pull the man off, to no avail…although someone had the presence of mind to snap pictures as it was happening. Thank goodness for bystanders! Police eventually responded and took the man into custody.

The bus driver is said to have only been under the influence of alcohol during the attack (although why he was drunk and driving a bus is a question I hope is answered soon). The woman, who was only identified in the Chinese news story as Du (her surname), survived the attack but will undergo surgery to repair her nose and mouth.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’ve probably heard about Rudy Eugene, the man who ate 75% of a homeless man’s face in Miami over Memorial Day weekend. A toxicology report was recently made public after Eugene was autopsied, and even though police and the media took the whole “bath salts” story and ran with it, Eugene was found to have no synthetic drugs in his system at all, only marijuana.
That fact, coupled with this latest story, is enough to make me wonder what we’ll see in the coming days and weeks, and whether we’ll ever know exactly what is causing this attacks.


Marvel Zombies Halloween Coming This October

Every year kids of all ages look forward to Halloween. It's the one time of year where it's socially acceptable to don a costume in public. Adults attend costumed parties and parades, while children dress up in their elaborate guises and go door to door trick or treating for candy. So on Halloween it's not unusual to see people wearing costumes that make them look like ghouls, ghosts, or even super heroes.
What happens though in a world where real ghouls wear costumes every day? Is the spirit of Halloween still alive in a reality where masked zombies regularly munch on the few remaining humans in the world? This October Van Lente and artist Alessandro Vitti will answer those questions and more in the special holiday themed one-shot, “Marvel Zombies Halloween” which he describes in detail below!
The following interview was conducted by CBR Staff Writer Dave Richards
CBR News: Fred, you wrote "Marvel Zombies 3-5," and you also contributed to the "Marvel Zombies Return" miniseries, which means you're the most prolific author for this particular franchise. So did you always mean to do another "Marvel Zombies" project after "Marvel Zombies 5," or was there something about this project in particular that made it especially appealing?
Fred Van Lente: I definitely got a little burnt out there at the end of #5. There are only so many different ways super heroes can eat each other. [Laughs] So I sort of needed to refill the tank.
EXCLUSIVE: Fred Van Lente and Alessandro Vitti celebrate "Marvel Zombies Halloween" this October
Cover art by Francesco Francavilla
What inspired me to come back was that this is very much a holiday special comic. In many ways I'm writing this for my wife who has a scary love of holiday specials. She forces me to watch them with her especially during Halloween, Christmas, and Easter. It doesn't matter if it's animated, live action, or stop motion. We'll watch them all. So this is kind of for her. It's a fun, little, gory, one-shot horror story.
One of the fun elements of the "Marvel Zombies" franchise is that it can literally go almost anywhere and tackle almost any kind of genre. So where are you taking readers in "Marvel Zombies Halloween"?
The franchise is known for being really over the top and focusing on the insane idea of zombie-infected super heroes. And in the past, we've done stories with martians, robots, knights and many of Marvel's monster characters. So for our Halloween one-shot, we're doing more of a "classic" zombie apocalypse story about a woman and her son. The kid has grown up in a zombie apocalypse universe and when Halloween rolls around, he wants to go trick or treating. He's heard about it and read about it, but his mom doesn't think it's a very good idea because they're surrounded by zombies.
So he asks her, "What's the purpose of us staying alive during the zombie apocalypse if we never get to have any fun? What's the point of just surviving?" He then sneaks out on Halloween night and goes Trick or Treating in a Spider-Man costume and events spiral from there. It's a horrific but sweet little tale.
Who is your point of view character for the story? The boy? The mother? Or will you follow the perspective of both characters?
I'm not going to reveal that. They're both equally important though; perhaps to the Marvel Universe, perhaps not. I love "Twilight Zone" style twists, and there's definitely some of that going on here.
So is this essentially a mystery story, where initially readers won't know the exact identities of the main characters or when this story takes place in the established "Marvel Zombies" chronology?
Exactly. If I revealed those things, I would give away the game, but I can reveal that this is going to really focus on Marvel's kid and teen heroes; Avengers Academy, Runaways and even Power Pack. You'll see more gruesome versions of these teams than we're used to seeing. It's sort of what "Lost Boys" did for vampires.
Plus, there's even a surprise appearance at the end of the story by a Marvel character I've always loved, but for various reasons have never been able to include in a story. Their appearance in this is particularly apropos. It's another horror-themed Marvel character that I've never been able to write.
From what you've described, it sounds like a classic EC Comics style horror tale more than the typical Marvel Zombies story.
I imagine that most people reading this know that Ray Bradbury recently passed away. One of my favorite books, which really influenced me as a kid growing up, is one of his lesser known works. It's called "The Halloween Tree." It's this very intense kid's story, obviously set during Halloween. Another one of my favorite books that he did was "Something Wicked This Way Comes." Those stories are both big influences on this one-shot. It's sort of "Marvel Zombies" meets the, for lack of a better phrase, suburban magical realism that Bradbury brought to a lot of his horror stories. And obviously EC ripped him off a couple of times for stories. [Laughs] So I can totally see how you would make that connection.
We've talked about story and characters, so let's wrap things up by talking about your artistic collaborator on the book. Alessandro Vitti is bringing your script to life. What do you feel he brings to this particular story as an artist?
Alessandro and I did a back up series involving teen heroes in "Fear Itself: The Home Front." So I think that's why he was chosen for and this and is such a good fit. Alessandro also brings a great youthful quality to the story, which is important because of the various characters involved.
The exterior of "Marvel Zombies Halloween" will feature some pretty striking imagery as well, as seen in our exclusive first look at Francesco Francavilla's cover.
Francesco did a great job with the cover. I'm thinking there's something to be said about impulse buys in comics. We need more of those, and I'm a sucker for these holiday special comics. People are going to walk into the store during the last week of October and see Francesco's cover, and this thing is just going to jump off the racks at them. They'll get a fun, beautiful-looking comic that hopefully captures the spirit of Halloween. To me, that's the whole purpose of a holiday comic. It's something to get people into the mood of the season.

About The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor
Following in the footsteps of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels and the record-breaking new television show, this debut novel in a trilogy of original Walking Dead books chronicles the back story of the comic book series’ greatest villain, The Governor.
In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial arc in the history of The Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.
So go ahead and grab your free audiobook right now! You better hurry before this offer is gone!

MADFINGER Games Raises The Bar Once Again With Dead Trigger

MADFINGER Games Raises The Bar Once Again With Dead Trigger
DEAD TRIGGER ($0.99) by MADFINGER Games, a.s. quite literally takes iOS gaming to the next level. Just as with their previous title, Shadowgun, MADFINGER Games blows away the field with incredibly gorgeous visuals and intense gameplay that keeps you glued to your screen all the way through.
Dead Trigger is a first-person zombie shooter similar to the Call of Duty: Zombies series. Like in Call of Duty: Zombies, zombies emerge from various corners and holes in the walls and shamble towards you at varying speeds. If you get too close, it’s likely that you will take a few hits. Lose all of your health and you’re dead.
Dead Trigger differentiates itself from COD: Zombies mainly with its elaborate storyline. You play as one of the few survivors of a zombie outbreak, surviving on his own in a large city. You meet up with a group of survivors, and from there you become somewhat of a guardian.
The main menu in Dead Trigger is a map of the city. From there you can access your inventory, the shop, all of the missions that are currently available, as well as a few other things.
As you may have inferred from above, Dead Trigger features mission-based gameplay. The various missions that you will encounter include retrieving precious cargo, protecting your new friends, and simply surviving to see another day. There are two types of missions available; missions that follow the main storyline, and random side missions.
Similar to that of a role-playing game, a ranking system has been implemented in Dead Trigger to facilitate the unlocking of new weapons and items. Completing missions earns you experience points to level up your character. You can track your ranking, as well as a ton of other stats (like total limbs shot off) in the Safe Haven.
One thing that might get players (or prospective buyers) on edge is the fact that Dead Trigger is a “paymium” title. While Dead Trigger costs $0.99, it still features in-app purchases for in-game currency. From my experiences so far, the IAPs haven’t seemed necessary at all, but it’s hard to tell if that will hold true as you get further into the game.
To clarify on the in-game currency situation, there are two currencies included, cash and “gold fingers.” Cash is earned by killing zombies and completing missions. On the other hand, gold fingers can only be earned by completing Tap Joy offers (signing up for various things) and watching video ads.
The currency implementation is not too bad, and so far I haven’t had any complaints. Dead Trigger also features a rocking shop. There are 14 guns, 14 items, and 13 character upgrades can be purchased using your in-game cash (or occasionally the gold fingers). The merchandise available ranges from Strikers and miniguns, to fully automatic sentry guns.
Controls are pretty standard for a shooter, with a floating stick on the left side for movement, and swiping on the right side for camera view. There are also buttons for shooting, tossing grenades, and reloading. The controls work well enough to avoid most complaints, but it would be nice if alternate set-ups were available.
Dead Trigger is one of the more intense shooters available in the App Store. The story alone should last you for quite a while, and there are also a ton of side missions to keep you busy as well. Don’t shy away because of the IAPs. Seriously, give this game a try and blast the limbs off of the undead.


Death From Above In GibsNGlory Zombie App

Death From Above In GibsNGlory
GibsNGlory by Thunder Game Works icon
GibsNGlory ($0.99) by Thunder Game Works has you flinging zombies at British army soldiers. A huge, brute zombie poses as the launcher. He doesn’t have a name, but for the purpose of this article, we’ll call him “Chuck.”
The soldiers charge from the far right side of the screen.
You’ll need to stop them before they reach Chuck because they’ll start shooting the moment they can. He has some health he can lose, though it will cost you your stars. Ideally you’d complete the level with three stars. Zero health, zero stars.
Select the kind of zombie you’d like to throw from the menu below Chuck. He’ll dig into the ground and pull up a fresh corpse for you. Then you simply tap him and where you would like to fling the zombie. Watch as the zombies splatter into the troops, earning the game its “gibs” title.
Each zombie has different properties, all useful for stopping the soldiers. The hard hat zombie is your bread and butter. It will roll like a cannonball, toppling anyone or anything in its way. It’s especially useful for exploding fuel drums.
What’s interesting about this game is that you don’t have to play to unlock further levels: they’re all unlocked. It would be a good idea to start off from the beginning, but feel free to try the harder levels if you’re feeling bored.
In addition, a game editor exists for the iPad version, meaning you can either make your own levels or play other user-created ones. The game’s store also adds some variety. Cash in your stars to buy different types of zombies and other goodies.
Your game information is saved in Game Center, meaning you can hop on either your iPhone or iPad and keep your progress. All of your purchases are remembered as well.
This is an awesome game that’s sure to appeal to zombie fans, especially those who enjoyed the developer’s other title, Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches.

The Zombies Have Stolen the Online Jackpot

Zombies is a new slot game from NetEnt that has 5 reels and 20 paylines. NetEnt is one of our favourite casino game developers, so we were excited to see their latest gem. Zombies takes place in an empty shopping mall. Fans of horror movies will love the theme. It’s as funny as it is scary.

The symbols of Zombies are a bloody chainsaw, a gas mask, a bloody brain (nice graphics!), a bloody ripped out eye-ball and a club and hammer (bloody as can be, of course). Match 3 scatter symbols anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ve won 5 free spins. For each zombie shot during free spins, a coin amount is awarded based on the bet level of the round which activated the free spins. During free spins, bet line wins are multiplied after each spin. The first spin has a multiplier of x1, second is x2, third is x3, fourth is x4 and the fifth receives a x10 multiplier.

There’s a bloody red symbol which is the wild of Zombies. The wild can appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 and can substitute all symbols except for the scatter. Zombies even has a stacked wild, which can only appear on the third reel. It can appear as a single symbol, a stacked wild of 2, or a stacked wild of 3. The stacked wild does not appear during free spins.

And that’s not all! Zombies has a Random Wild Feature which can appear after any spin which has not activated free spins or the stacked wild feature. In the Random Wild Feature, up to 6 symbols from the round which activated the Random Wild can be changed into wild symbols.
We enjoyed playing Zombies. While it doesn’t have the bonus games that we enjoyed in Scarface, the free spins and wilds were just as cool. This new slot is as immersive and fun to play as any from the NetEnt catalog.

Zombies: Why Are We So Obsessed?

One of the worst movies ever made -- and not of the "good bad" type, such as Evil Dead 2, that masterpiece of B-picture campiness -- has proven to be a prescient meditation on one of the great conflicts of contemporary society. I mean, of course, Vince D'Amato's 2004 flick,Vampires vs. Zombies. Though actually quite light on warfare between the undead and heavy on lesbian sex, this movie points to our current obsession with blood-suckers and flesh-eaters as well as our need to establish which creature is ascendant in the zeitgeist. 

The popularity of pallidly lovelorn vampires, who also seem, in spite of their world-weariness, to work out, is epidemic. The recent premiere of True Blood's fifth season seduced 6.3 million viewers. Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries, the book series on which the show is based, has sold over 8 million copies, and its most recent title, Deadlocked, reached number two on the New York Times bestseller list just a few weeks ago. Stephanie Meyer's Twilight trilogy has been even more successful, selling about 120 million copies and spawning four films to date, which themselves have grossed over two billion dollars.
Although about as sexy as road kill, zombies are threatening to usurp the vampire. AMC's The Walking Dead has grown even more popular than True Blood, with its season two premiere reaching 7.3 million viewers and the finale, 9 million. The zombie films Resident Evil: Afterlife, released in 2010, andZombieland, from 2009, have each grossed over 100 million dollars. So great has been the enthusiasm for shuffling, groaning, glassy-eyed corpses that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) cheekily called their 2011 disaster readiness document "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse." But after three separate cannibalistic murders occurred within days of one another and millions entered "zombie apocalypse" into their search engines, the CDC quickly turned earnest, stating that there was no evidence of such an Armageddon

The internet remains abuzz over the undead. Maybe our obsession with zombies is a reflection of our fear of a pandemic virus that will transform us into flesh-starved corpses. Or perhaps we are afraid of a global financial collapse that would result in cannibalistic hordes haunting burned-out cities. Or possibly portents of nuclear terrorism scare us into nightmares of ubiquitous death. The vampire's vogue might likewise reflect societal concerns, with True Blood exploring the fight for gay rights and Twilight brooding over gender politics. 

But zombies and vampires enthrall audiences for trans-historical reasons as well. They elicit enduring human desires -- for sexual arousal (think shirtless Bayou vampires), or for control over death (Milla Jovovich whacking zombies); they fill our craving for violent spectacle, present long before even the Roman Coliseum; and they are simply scary, and we like to be scared, as the thrill of the roller coaster ride daily demonstrates. 

There are more complicated reasons, though, for our fixations on fictionalized monsters, especially when we contend with real horrors. A Canadian porn actor posts a video of himself online in which he kills his lover with an icepick and then eats the dead flesh. A man in Miami, crazed on bath salts, devours the face of a homeless person before police shoot him dead. Another man, this time in Maryland, murders his roommate and consumes his brains. These events, unspeakably horrific, threaten our cherished notions of a meaningful, morally structured universe. How to make sense of them?
Fit them into a well-known narrative pattern. Say: these killings are zombie attacks. 
We know that this isn't true, but the idea calms our cognitive panic. The phony ghouls defend against the actual ones. The murderers suddenly appear slightly comical (zombies, with their goofy expressions and screwy motor skills, are quite funny) and their crimes vaguely meaningful (examples of gory matinee mayhem).
Make-believe fiends serve our psyches in other ways. Sometimes in the face of crisis, we mobilize, struggle to manage; other times, we lack gumption, give up, fall into the perverse pleasure of relinquishing agency -- our ability to make a choice and take responsibility for it. The world's going to hell, yes, and there's nothing to be done about it, but it's not my fault.
When we cast off the burdens of freedom, we find kinship in the monstrous, for what does it mean to be a monster, really, but to be possessed by an uncontrollable force? Zombies are driven by an urge to cannibalize. Vampires can't check their lust for blood. Werewolves, trolls, goblins, demons and imps, sinister robots and good old fashioned ghosts: all are essentially addicts unburdened of guilt. We can imagine the strange satisfaction of an existence devoid of accountability -- the joy of casting off neurotic humanity and turning untroubled machine.
To go beyond moral choosing -- this is inhuman, inhumane. It is also beyond the human, transcendent. This is another weird attraction of the monster. The creature breaks boundaries that constrain us and becomes a gruesome geographer of lands expansive and unknown. Monsters overcome the termini of death (zombies); time (vampires); space (ghosts) and stable identity (werewolves, other shape-shifters). In these ways, they become sublime, invitations to push beyond the limits locking us into this one, finite life. They are also sacred, if we recall that sacer, the word's root, means "accursed" as well as "holy." Monsters awaken the Cain within us all -- sinister, pernicious, immoral, to be sure, but also strong enough to challenge God himself and secure His saving mark.
The monster is a maniacal mirror that reflects what is best in us and worst. We require it to tell us who we are and what we can do. And its revelation of our secret and not-so-secret societal fears is only the spooky surface. There are deeper, darker apocalypses in its Gothic chambers. The deepest, perhaps most diabolical disclosure is this: The most essential battle, the one that keeps us loving and alive, is between the demons as integral to us as our hearts and the angels who require these imps to define their opposing generosities.


'Walking Dead' Gets Its Own Zombie-Filled Magazine This Fall

If print media is dead, then The Walking Dead is making it zombified.

Published by Titan Magazines and Image Comics' Skybound imprint, The Walking Dead: The Official Magazine launches as a quarterly publication beginning Oct. 23 on newsstands — the same month as the popular AMC TV show returns for its third season.

The 100-page magazine will offer content and news from both the TV show and the ongoing Image comic created by Robert Kirkman, including interviews; on-set features; conversations with cast members such as Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies; behind-the-scenes zombie articles; and more.

In addition, Walking Dead comic artist Charlie Adlard is illustrating an alternate zombie cover for the magazine's first issue that will only be available in comic shops. Bookstores, newsstands and subscribers will get the cover featuring Lincoln as Rick Grimes.

"This magazine will be your one-stop destination for all the news pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games and whatever else exists in the ever-expandingWalking Dead universe," Kirkman says.

The Walking Dead magazine will also be active on social media with Twitter and Facebook. And Titan — which also publishes Star Wars InsiderStar Trek MagazineSupernatural Magazine and the British comic-book publication CLiNT— is offering a special pre-order subscription with a 20% discount on its website.

Fans of the show and comic don't have to wait until October for more info about the undead franchise, though.

Next month, Kirkman is turning San Diego Comic-Con into a Walking Dead paradise with a "Walking Dead Escape" zombie obstacle course at Petco Park and the debut of Walking Dead issue 100. And AMC has a Walking Dead weekend planned for July 7-8 with a marathon of episodes and a sneak peek at the new season.
