You can wade through an endless cache of movies, music, novels, and comic books and still have a difficult time staying atop the undead legions.

File this one firmly under WTF?!? Every now and again a film will come along that makes us turn our heads and take notice. Sometimes it's because it looks either dramatically bad or good, and other times it gets our attention if only for how friggin' strangely depraved it seems! Enter James Morgart's Won Ton Baby!
