Dawn on the Dead on the iPhone

For those of you with an iPhone and who like to kill thousands of zombies en masse, you might want to check out Universal’s Dawn of the Dead arcade game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I wish I could write something fresh about this game, but honestly, I’ve seen a gazillion of these types of games online for free. Hell, even Dead Frontier tried to create an MMORPG around what looks to be the same game. Here’s a little more information from the blog post: … Read entire article »

Dawn of the Dead 2?

I was just browsing over at ZombieZoneNews.com (great site, btw) when this article grabbed my eye, and rammed it through a long splinter. Maybe that wasn’t the appropriate metaphor, but the site is reporting that Dawn of the Dead 2 is currently in talks. This makes total sense, and to tell you the truth, I’m surprised it has taken this long for these talks to surface. After all, the remake of Dawn of the Dead was the highest grossing zombie film of all time. From the article: … Read entire article »

Dawn of the Dead Coming to the Small Screen?

Here’s an interesting bit of news circulating through the web. Evidently, MTV (remember when they did music?) is in the works of turning Dawn of the Dead in a television series. There’s not much details on the project with exception that it will be combination of fast zombies and slow zombies. Horror website Bloody Disgusting broke the news, but the news has been picked up all over the web, Bloody Disgusting has since pulled it down. If only removing content was that easy. You can check out the announcement here thanks to good old google cache. … Read entire article »

Zombie Bracket – Final Round – Night of the Living Dead vs Dawn of the Dead (2004)

Zombieland put up a spirited defense, but alas, the flesh eaters from Dawn of the Dead ended up overwhelming the new comedy, and tearing it to pieces. That means, Zombieland has placed fourth just behind 28 Days Later. Now it is time to determine who wins it all and who walks away second best. Night of the Living Dead versus Dawn of the Dead (2004) Here is Night of the Living Dead’s synopsis: Chaos descends upon the world as the brains of the recently deceased become inexplicably reanimated, causing the dead to rise and feed on human flesh. Speculation rests on a radiation-covered NASA satellite returning from Venus, but it only remains a speculation. Anyone who dies during the crisis of causes unrelated to brain trauma will return as a flesh-eating … Read entire article »

Dawn of the Living Dead?

Did you notice that Romero’s first film was titled Night of the Living Dead and his followup zombie film was titled Dawn of the Dead. Following logic, the next movie should have been titled Dawn of the Living Dead? Instead, every movie since Night of the Living Dead the moniker “living dead” has been dropped from all Romero films. There’s actually a good reason for this, and his name is John Russo. When George Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, he worked with several collaborators. Each one paid five hundred bucks to finance the film. One such collaborator was John Russo who actually co-wrote the script with Romero. Like all shaky partnerships, Russo and Romero found themselves at odds with one another after the … Read entire article »

Zombie Bracket – Round 3 – Zombieland vs Dawn of the Dead (2004)

I would like to say it was a tough matchup, but Night of the Living Dead came out swinging and earned itself a place in the championship. This next matchup should be an interesting one. Two recent zombie upstarts going head to head. There can be only one victor. The question, who will make it to the championship match. The next question … will it even matter? Here is Zombieland’s synopsis: A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the duo meets up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), … Read entire article »
