What is it with Halloween day and zombies? After our story earlier today about the science behind a zombie apocalypse, a couple more news stories related to zombie preparedness have come our way.
Just in time for our most hallowed of days and after the rash of zombie-like attacks that started this past summer, the guys behind the AsapSCIENCE YouTube channel released this easy to understand video to explain the possibility of a zombie apocalypse being real.
Starring Ving Rhames, Taryn Manning, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Johnny Pacar Directed by Nick Lyon
I rather enjoy how a zombie fleeing from certain death... uh, re-death... inspires Ving Rhames to declare the zombies are getting smarter in this clip from this Saturday’s Syfy premiere of Zombie Apocalyse, and then seconds later we see a zombie spastically windmilling its arms as it charges forth.
Smaller scale zombie carnage is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network next week as Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone becomes available for download. In the mood for a peek at the festivities? Of course you are!
How's this for a fast turnaround? The Asylum’s Zombie Apocalypse was announced in March, first word of the production came in August, the trailer premiered earlier this month, and now Syfy schedules its premiere Halloween weekend. Talk about a rushed production. They'll sleep when they're dead, I guess.
Ving Rhames, man. He's turning into this generation's Ken Foree in terms of being on tap to kill zombies (though Foree will always be more badass). In any event, the trailer for The Asylum's Zombie Apocalypse is here, and we have every dreaded pixel of it awaiting your consumption.
I recall Ving Rhames saying in an interview around the time of the Dawn of the Dead remake’s release that he wasn’t a fan of horror movies. He must have since discovered an affinity for zombie flicks because Zombie Apocalypse marks his third go-round with the living dead.
Yesterday we brought you the first word about the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse (oh, how we love writing shit like that), and today we have the final details for you along with three bits of artwork. Dig it! From the Press Release
Who isn't looking forward to a good old fashioned zombie apocalypse? Carnage! Free stuff! Hot lead! The only drawback is you need to stay off of their friggin' menu!
You know, normally an announcement like this would have us doing back-flips in fits of joy. There's just one hitch ... we remember Konami's original Zombie Apocalypse all too well. Can the sequel get it right? Read on for the first screenshots and details.
Earlier today Creepy revealed three new reality series that Syfy has planned, and now we have a look at nine films that will be heading our way as part of the network's Saturday Original Movies. Somewhere The Foywonder is sobbing uncontrollably but has no idea why.
If you've upgraded your system to include a Blu-ray player, then this is a pretty good week for you as August 4th will see the release of a few old friends including Blade II, Hannibal Rising, and Mimic. On the newer end of the spectrum, we have sci-fi/horror hybrids Alien Uprising and The Mutant Chronicles along with watch-it-at-your-own-risk fare like Cravings, The Chaos Experiment, Nature's Grave, and the anthology Slices.
Here at Dread Central there's no greater apocalypse we're interested in than a zombie apocalypse. That's why when word of a new indie film of that name surfaced, we found ourselves looking to unearth some goodies for you guys.
The new wave of zombie videogame goodness continues with Zombie Apocalypse, due from Konami in September on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
