31 Days of Horror – Day 15: The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.
You can never be too prepared for when the undead rise.
This book will be your greatest ally.
1. Organize before they rise!
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don’t need reloading.
5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer.
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on.
The living dead + Punks + Humor = One of the greatest zombie movies off all-time. If you haven’t seen this yet your life isn’t complete.
Currently burning through Season 5 of The Walking Dead on Netflix. I wanted to try and ration the season out and make it last until the end of the month but it’s been pretty damn spectacular thus far and I don’t see that happening.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
I Sell the Dead (2008) is writer and director Glenn McQuaid’s throwback love letter to Universal and Hammer gothic-horror films. Starring Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings and Lost fame as Arthur Blake, director/actor Larry Fessenden as Willie Grimes and the always welcome Ron Perlman, I Sell the Dead follows the exploits of a pair of bumbling grave robbers whose profession takes a turn for the weird when the dead stop staying dead. Featuring flickering candle and lantern light, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates and decrepit cemeteries, I Sell the Dead wears its gothic-horror pedigree on its sleeve. Served up with equal parts humor the film has become a favorite around the Jack’s Attic house and is highly recommended.
A zombie disco bouncer? An alien sumo wrestler? An Akido master possessed by Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead?
Jack’s Attic is proud to present our next bootleg resin action figure release: Zombie Disuko Smasher. A three (3) piece mini figure set based on the completely insane and obscure 1987 Famicom game “Zombie Disuko Smasher”.
Find out more when it touches down in our SHOP on May 28, 2014.

I’ve written about Resident Evil: Director’s Cut before and while we here in the United States got shafted in regards to the “uncensored” content we were promised in the re-release of the original Resident Evil, the comic book and magazine advertising held nothing back. Admittedly, I haven’t been reading a lot of comic books lately but I don’t think I’d run into a video game ad nowadays which showed absolutely no game screens and featured a realistic looking human eyeball soaking in a specimen jar.

A great song from an ever better film (The Return of the Living Dead).
