Zombieworld – The Reviews Are In!

Published

Zombieworld

On February 24th, Dread Central and Ruthless Pictures brought the collaborative effort Zombieworld to both DVD and VOD, and the response has thus far been overwhelmingly positive. There’s truly a little something for everyone in our whacky anthology, and we love to hear what you guys and gals think about it.

Indeed, we’ve been paying close attention to all the reviews, and we wanted to show our thanks for the support by putting together a link list of all the ones we’ve spotted in our travels across the weird wide web. And no, we don’t care if you hated the film and shouted it from the rooftops; we’re still happy you took the time to check it out and write about it.

We can, of course, come back and edit this post at any time, so if you don’t see your review link below, please do let us know so we can add your thoughts to the mix. We don’t want anyone left in the cold out there in Zombieworld, so don’t be afraid to speak up and e-mail your review over to us.

Without further ado, let’s see what you guys have to say about our little undead baby, which was truly made by fans for fans!

Synopsis:
Zombieworld is a collection of short films focusing on survivors across the world as they struggle to overcome horrifying circumstances when a pandemic brings forth a zombie apocalypse. The collection of blood and guts is brought to life by a group of new and up-and-coming directors from around the world. From Ireland, Canada, Australia, Europe, and all over the U.S., the bone-chilling news reports tell the same gruesome tale: Walking corpses terrorize and devour the living. Only a few desperate humans find the courage to stand and fight for their last chance at survival. But the hordes of undead keep coming, and there’s only one thing on the menu – us.

AfterShock Comics Announces First Anthology Collection Titled Shock

Published

on

AfterShock Comics continues to push boundaries by presenting Shock, its very first anthology collection featuring a slew of today’s top writers and artists. It arrives in March of next year, and we have a look at the cover plus a few interior pages for you along with quotes from several of the creators.

Presented in the “European Album” format (same as the recent Animosity: the Rise hardcover for LCSD), this handsome hardcover features the creative talents of Bill Willingham, Marguerite Bennett, Mike Carey, Jim Starlin, Michael Zulli, Charles Vess, Michael Gaydos, Andy Clarke, Andrew Robinson, Sarah Delaine, Phil Hester, Paul Jenkins, Neil Gaiman, Dalibor Talajic, Travis Moore, Brian Azzarello, Francesco Francavilla, Cullen Bunn, Marc Guggenheim, Frank Tieri, Brian Stelfreeze, and more.  The cover art is by John Cassaday.

Shock hails from Joe Pruett, the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated editor of the classic Negative Burn anthology series.

CREATOR QUOTES:

CULLEN BUNN: My story, “Blooderflies,” is a horror/dark fantasy yarn that tells a complete story in just 8 pages, but it should keep readers thinking about the setting and “what happens next” for some time to come. To me, that’s part of what makes AfterShock’s catalog so thrilling. These stories, short or long, really fire the imagination. I couldn’t be happier to be included alongside these amazing creators.

MARC GUGGENHEIM: “Metroclash” is an idea that’s been burning a hole in my notebook for years: What if cities could fight like people? It’s the kind of huge, visually-driven idea that could only be done in comics. My story centers on a clash between New York City and Chicago, and I couldn’t be more excited about getting this crazy, bombastic concept out into the world.

MIKE CAREY: My story in the anthology is an autobiographical piece about growing up in Liverpool in the middle of the last century, a time that in some ways feels as distant as the late Jurassic. I’m trying to make sense of the disconnect between the world I knew as a kid and the world I live in now. It’s also a story about the way memories work and the way we constantly try to build a coherent narrative out of the incoherent facts of our lives. I’ve slipped biographical details into stories before, but I’ve never written a fully autobiographical story. I’m excited to see how it comes out, not least because Szymon Kudranski is doing the art, and I can’t wait to see how my life looks in his gorgeous black and white palette.

FRANK TIERI: My story is called “Little Red Hood,” and you can think of it as basically “Little Red Riding Hood” as if it was a Quentin Tarantino movie. The familiar fairy tale is instead set up as a big drug deal gone horribly wrong. So in our case, Red is a drug courier delivering a package to the biggest drug dealer in town– that of course being Grandma– and then rival drug dealer “The Wolf” arrives, and everything hits the fan. It’s over-the-top, ultra-violent, and very much not the beloved Brothers Grimm yarn we all grew up with. So yeah, this ain’t a beddy bye story you’ll be reading to your kids anytime soon. Or at least it sure as hell shouldn’t be!

MARGUERITE BENNETT: AfterShock has given me the most creative freedom I’ve had in my entire career–I’m always delighted to submit these twisted pitches and hear back that this is the one place those strangest stories can find a home. For my own part, my story is a family revenge drama set in a Border town in the 1970s–a ghastly little tale about the gifts that give and the gifts that take. I’m thrilled to be a part of such a splendid anthology.

PHIL HESTER: I feel privileged to work with one of my all-time comics heroes in Jim Starlin. Our short story “Berserker” is a prime example of Jim’s unique ability to marry very personal narratives with cosmic action and timeless imponderables. I hope I can do it justice.

Here’s Episode One of Dan Yadin’s Stop-Motion Animated Comedy I Want to Kill

Published

on

Brooklyn-based writer/director/filmmaker Dan Yadin’s new dark and twisted animated comedy “i want to kill” has premiered and you can watch the utter madness below.

The episode stars comedians James Adomian (@midnight, Children’s Hospital, Comedy Bang! Bang!), Amber Nelson (Guy Code, Netflix’s ‘Characters’) and Clark Jones (HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Brooklyn’s 50 Funniest People).

“i want to kill” is made from cardboard sets and low-rent stop motion and it is pretty damn strange if you ask me. But if that’s your thing then I think you’ll enjoy the animated series.

Check it out below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think!

Synopsis:

Astronaut Robert Holeman is fed up with Suburbia, after years of desires going unrealized and confronting his privilege, boredom, and mortality he’s been nudged into a sort of suicidal/genocidal nihilism stoked by a steady diet of drugs. The violent fantasies, anger, and fear don’t belong to just Robert, but also to his neglected girlfriend and son. “i want to kill” is about catharsis and release. Anger unchecked leads to emptiness, but boy is it funny.

Go Christmas Caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Published

on

Given that I personally have gone Christmas caroling with various lunatics hopped up on eggnog, what the hell… why not go Christmas caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer? Dig on this latest clip!

Look for the flick starring Colin Farrell (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, In Bruges, 2009) and co-starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress, The Hours, 2003) to hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on January 23rd. Yorgos Lanthimos directs.

Special features include “An Impossible Conundrum” featurette, and the package will be priced at $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Synopsis:
Dr. Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of Steven’s idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen he has covertly taken under his wing.

As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.
