Film Review: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
The addition of martial arts, sword wielding, gun fighting, and zombies to a Regency-era classic tale of manners and marriage turns a new film adaptation of Pride And Prejudice, Jane Austen's beloved novel, into a different kind of bodice ripper (har har).

5 Zombie Questions: Mike Carey
Mike Carey has had a prolific career in comics writing for the big publishers for long runs on some of their most successful and most critically acclaimed titles.

In Pictures: The 2013 Cape Town Zombie Walk, Part 2
A mysterious forcefield ("rules") prevented the zombies of the 2013 Cape Town Zombie Walk from continuing their adventure into, or past, the South African Museum so the mangled group mingled before U-turning to follow the path back through the city to the starting point.

What does an average zombie horde look like? What would you encounter if random members of the public suddenly amassed outside your house, looking for braaaaiiinnns? We asked for your best ZombieBooth shots and here's what we received. Combined, the collection is slightly frightening. Therefore, don't forget: when confronted, aim for the head.

Night Of The Living Dead: Reanimated
The zombie apocalypse is just as scary when it is presented in a mixed-media format, as is the case for Mike Schneider's tasty, undead brainchild, a reconceptualisation of George A Romero's landmark film from 1968.

Retro Review: Night Of The Living Dead (1968)
The zombie apocalypse will be televised as the dead rise and begin to feast on the living in Night Of The Living Dead, a classic zombie horror movie that shocked audiences when it was first released and, decades later, continues to resonate with contemporary audiences and have a heavy influence on pop culture.

Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Robots
The ninja-infested high seas are no place for a pirate. Well, I mean, they are, it's just not pleasant. Then, on land, zombies. Plus, the robot scourge! Or, maybe, what's a poor ninja to do? You just can't catch a break. Pirates and zombies. We'll need robots! Also, what about those zombies? Shame. Mmmmmmmm. Braaaaaaaains. The robots? Silent killers. Like the ninjas. It's cyclical.

Home Away, edited by Louis Greenberg
It's an impressive undertaking: coordinate 24 writers to write 24 stories, each inspired by a different hour of the day and a different city of the world, and use these tales to "reflect on the nature of home", with no restriction on genre, fact, or fiction. The result? Whatever you choose to make of it.

MEOW
This animated music short is too good to save for Halloween (although, in our minds, every day is Halloween at brainwavez.org) so I thought I'd post about it to start 2010 with some fun - may it be a reminder that the horrors of 2009 are now in the past and may it be a sign that 2010 will be filled with zombies and kittens! (Preferably at a safe distance if the two are one and the same.)

Satisfy your inner zombie's craving for B-R-A-I-N-S, find the ghoul of your dreams, and take your revenge on society at large in an ode to gleefully over-the-top carnage and bad taste. Our anti hero feasts on brains, has a real problem with authority, and turns everyone he meets into a zombie - and if that isn't bad enough, he (shock! horror!) even smokes....

brainwavez.org Zombie Shorts Festival - The B Roll
What do you end up with once you're picked the best? A lot of weird stuff. Here's a selection of zombie shorts that didn't make it into our recent film festival. In these, "horror" really stands for "horrorble" (including that joke) but if you're open to it there's still lots of fun to be had watching this crazy selection. Once again, you need to be an adult to access these videos.

brainwavez.org Zombie Shorts Festival: Selections From Rockstar Games Social Club TV
What better way to kick off our Halloween festivities this year than with zombies? We lumbered around the Rockstar Games Social Club TV web site to find the undead lurking in sometimes surprising places and, therefore, we compiled a film festival, as one does when confronted with horror! Watch in order, or pick and choose - either way, we hope you enjoy it! (Although there are no brains in this showcase it's still not suitable for minors. If you fall into this category, we recommend a few years of growth and, in the meantime, "A Tale Of Terror: The Boise Zombie Walk".)

A Tale Of Terror: The Boise Zombie Walk
Halloween comes but once a year but zombies are forever (unless you hack them to bits, which is recommended). Celebrate the quest for braaaaainnnnsssss with brainwavez.org's recent shuffle through Boise, Idaho, the potato capital of the world (not including Ireland...and possibly some other places).
