Not sure how we missed this! The Music Box Theatre will be showing the much-anticipated Norwegian Nazi Zombie Extravaganza “Dead Snow” for the next week or so.
The group of friends had all they would need for a successful Easter vacation: cabin, skis, snowmobile, toboggan, copious amounts of beer and a fertile mix of the sexes. Certainly, none of them had anticipated not returning home alive! However, the Nazi-zombie battalion haunting the mountains surrounding the aptly named Oksfjord (Axefjord) had other plans…

Attendees of the San Diego Comic Con may get their hot little hands on this seemingly lame promotional shirt for the new Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles.
However, like many things in the Resident Evil universe, this shirt is more than it seems. It can transform the wearer into an INSTANT ZOMBIE:

BRAVE KNIGHTS, FAIR MAIDENS, BAWDY WENCHES AND HUNGRY CORPSES!
Chicago’s favorite zombie Kitty invites you to travel back to Ye Good Olde Days at the Bristol Renaissance Faire for PLAGUE DAY this August 15th. What is Plague Day? ZOMBIES AT THE FAIRE! Bristol has opened its oaken gates to Chicago/Milwaukee’s zombie citizens, offering a VERY special zombies-only discount, and sectioning off the Cotwolds Commons area exclusively for the undead! There’ll be prizes, contests, raffles, activities and more! Also known as The Glade, the Commons will be appropriately decorated with a medieval (med-evil?) zombie theme to give it that freshly-dug-grave feeling. So come out to the Faire, grab a pint, eat a wench and enjoy the simple undead pleasures of a bygone age!
Although it should go without saying, we want to see period costume zombies – no Armani Zombies!
