Zombie Boot Camp

Posted in funny, On the Web, YouTube on July 31, 2009 by leighcifer

This is so full of awesome.

There is an amusement park in Japan called Fuji-Q Highland, which offers a huge horror maze called Saikyō Senritsu Meikyū.  Recently, as part of publicity stunt by the amusement park, there was a staged press conference stating that the park was going to be closed down in order to train the zombies to be more scary.  They even went as far as making videos of the zombie training program!

Thanks to Laura for sending me the article from Pink Tentacle.

I just read on Vault of Horror that Clayton Hill, aka “sweater zombie” passed away at age 78 on Saturday due to complications from pneumonia. Hill’s zombie claim to fame was his role as the white sweater vest wearing brain-eater in the Romero classic Dawn of the Dead.  Hill leaves behind his wife Sharon Ceccatti, who played her own memorable zombie role in DotD as “nurse zombie”.

Clayton and Sharon were often seen at horror conventions together, signing autographs for all of us crazy zombie fans.

Rest in peace, Clayton. Thank you for being a part of zombie pop culture.

“El Ataque de las Tapas Zombies!”

Posted in art, funny, On the Web on July 23, 2009 by leighcifer

I found this neat little story on a food blog called Eat Me Daily.  In May of this year, an in-flight magazine for the airline Vueling published a pictorial called “El Ataque de las Tapas Zombies”, or “Attack of the Tapas Zombies”. Ling has since pulled the magazine because of this cool photo spread, but you can still view the whole thing online here.

tapas, which, after prolonged storage in badly refrigerated displays, have experienced changes in their genetic code and, finding themselves bloodthirsty, have started to rebel against the human race… The authorities have placed the entire city of Madrid under quarantine. Citizens are advised not to leave the house during meal times and to fasten their fridges with insulating tape.

You gotta be careful with food that used to be alive. That shit will kill you! (sorry. I couldn’t resist.)

This is not your Dad’s Superman, Batman or anyone else.

Synopsis:

North of Paris. In order to avenge the murder of one of their own by a group of ruthless gangsters, corrupt cops four go on a rampage in a condemned building serving as the mobster’s hideout. Now trapped, the officers are about to be executed when the unimaginable occurs: hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures invade the building, savagely attacking everyone. Unexpected alliances are made when their lives are threatened by the unthinkable.

Yep.  Gangsters vs. Cops vs. Zombies.
