#SDCC17: Annual San Diego Zombie to Rise Up as a George Romero Remembrance Vigil

Published

Creepy Zombie

One of the staples of the San Diego Comic-Con has always been the shambling celebration of zombiedom known as Zombie Walk: San Diego. It was retired last year, but with the loss of our friend George A. Romero, this year it’s going to be something much more.

Via the George Romero Remembrance Vigil Facebook Event Page:

Our first SDCC walk, in 2007, was held in honor of George’s appearance at Comic-Con. Quite simply, we owe our existence and continued love of all things zombie to him. We would be remiss if we did not offer his fans a way to come together and show their love and gratitude for the many fantastic films he provided us over the years.

Please join us on Saturday, July 22nd, at 8:00 PM PT for a brief remembrance vigil at Children’s Park, located on the Martin Luther King Promenade (look for the large fountains across from the Marriott Marquis & Marina). We invite you to share your memories and stories of George Romero and how he’s positively influenced your life, as well as join us for a 77-second moment of silence to honor George’s incomparable genius.

LED candles and glow sticks (especially green) are encouraged and welcomed; however, please leave all REAL candles at home. No open flame will be allowed, for safety reasons. Zombie attire is obviously also encouraged, but not required.

As a living dead alumnus and friend to this great, unforgettable man, I will be speaking there at 8:00 PM on George’s behalf as a means to help the group celebrate his memory. If you’re there and want to pay your respects to the master, please come down, join us, and say hello.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.

I’m not one for playing video games but even I will have to check out this new first-person shooter set in the Alien universe currently in the works at FoxNext Games.

This new and untitled game is the first original Alien-inspired game since “Alien: Isolation” and Cold Iron Studios is developing the game after recently being acquired by Fox (and now Disney).

“Cold Iron Studios has amazing design, craftsmanship, and development talent that we are excited to welcome at FoxNext Games as we pursue our goal to build a multi-platform, multi-genre portfolio of great games,” said FoxNext Games president Aaron Loeb. “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”

“We believe in FoxNext’s vision and we are thrilled about the opportunity to explore an amazing and rich universe,” said Cold Iron CEO Craig Zinkievich. “Our background in building online worlds and taking established franchises to the next level in interactive entertainment is a precise fit with our product roadmap ahead.”
