George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

With the US release of “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead” upon US theatres in a mere two days, Romero plans to go mobile by launching a new application for the iPhone, appropriately named ‘App of the Dead’.

Developed by Additive Interactive, the app will allow the user to import photos of their friends and family and transform them into brain hungry, undead corpses. It allows you to take over the director role and transform your ordinary friends into some pretty fiendish characters.

Features include:

  • Capturing or importing a photo, followed by adding over 20 zombie features, including open wounds, weapons, and a large gallery of deformed eyes and mouth options.
  • A custom engine that allows you to “shoot” your creations and experience the amazing blood-splatter effect.
  • Save your zombie images to your phone, post them to a social networking website or e-mail them to others.

Although there is no release date specified, it’s rumored that the application will appear in the App Store within the next 2-3 weeks. iPhone owners will be eager to get their hands on this application but I’d be careful, I’ve heard it makes your device a bit hungry and may cause unexplained bite marks and loss of humanity.

An Undead Wedding – Review

An Undead Wedding – Review

An Undead Wedding will never win any literary awards. The editing was not always what it should be. At times the content was a little cliché. Despite that, this was one of the best, fun reads I’ve had in a while!

Read what makes An Undead Wedding so great by clicking the red bar below (okay, we know it’s pink).

E’Gad Zombies Premieres at Cannes

13 May

It seems like only yesterday we were talking about a low budget British zombie film taking Cannes by storm but it’s actually been a year and things certainly seem to move in slow circles in the zombie world as history (sort of) repeats itself.

This time Sir Ian McKellen stars in period piece E’Gad Zombies which is currently only 22 minutes long and hoping to secure funding to complete the film.

The film is set in 1700’s England in a town called Upper Trollop where there lived a somewhat dappy poet named William Filthe’.

He was the younger brother of the family and therefore his chances of actually achieving anything in his life were slim to middling at best. Not that this mattered to him of course, for he was in love with the beautiful but slightly terrifying Vanity Banks, and had decided that as soon as she stopped throwing vegetables at him, they should marry.

The reason Vanity threw vegetables at William was because he was poor. She was rich and everybody loved her so why on earth would she marry a poet who spent his time at her window spouting his ludicrous poetry. So she decided to marry Richard Filthe’, William’s affluent elder brother and all round bad egg.

So William, devastated, decides to leave England and live as a monk, turning his back on life and love. On the morning of his departure however, he finds his household deserted and one of his servants, Sandwich, half eaten. Racing through the town to save the woman he loves, he discovers that Upper Trollop has been infected by an illness, turning all it’s inhabitants into crazed creatures and making them all rather…bitey…

If it manages the Sir Ian will fit in the filming around the slightly bigger budget films of The Hobbit. It’s important to remember though that he’s not really a wizard.
