Zombies Of The Caribbean

10 Apr

Zombie pirates are the order of the day with this fantastic Left 4 Dead 2 mod of The Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland.

While being stuck in Disneyland when the zombie outbreak begins would be a nightmare, if there’s one thing we chose not to learn from in Zombieland it’s that visiting abandoned theme park is a bad idea. So bring on more zombie amusement rides!

While it’s not particularly packed as full as a usual L4D2 level with zombies and lacks a decent crescendo event, if you want to download the mod you can do so here.

Opstandelsen – Trailer – English Subs

7 Apr

We wrote about Opstandelsen back in January and at that point we didn’t know what it meant or what it was about.

Thanks to this updated English subtitled version (posted on zombie Jesus day no less) and their Facebook page, we now know that it does indeed mean Resurrection and the film is due in May as well as… well, just what Opstandelsen means and that the film is due in May really.

The trailer and name seems to imply there will be significant religious overtones and while many other zombie films have touched upon the matter of religion in a zombocalypse none that I can think of focus solely on the subject.

There doesn’t seem to be an official page so become a fan on Facebook to be kept up to date.

The Walking Dead – TV Show – Update

The Walking Dead – TV Show – Update

Variety reports that Teachers actor Andrew Lincoln has secured the part of Rick Grimes in the forthcoming AMC TV adaptation of The Walking Dead.

Personally we don’t see it but, having caught the odd episode of Teachers, Lincoln’s casting doesn’t have us overly worried. A bit of stubble and a wig (his hair is stupid curly) and he could make a good Rick.

Jon Bernthal has also been cast as Rick’s partner on the force, Shane.

AMC has currently only commissioned 6 episodes to premiere in October for AMC’s Fearfest, but it’s fairly common practise with many new properties only getting a short half season before going on to further full length seasons.

In case you’re still worried that you’ll not see enough of The Walking Dead on the small screen it’s worth noting that all episodes were commissioned without the need for a pilot based on the strength of Frank Darabont’s initial script. It’s not yet known how much of the story will be told in this first arc.

With the pilot set to shoot in June we’ll bring you more information as we get it.
