Zombie Bits

THE DEAD DON'T DIE... IN THE ZONE

Hop on over to FearZone. The first installment of our monthly column features a retro-review of Deathdream (1974) (AKA The Night Walk and Dead of Night), Bob Clark's follow-up to Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things.

The poster art looks a little familiar, doesn't it?

"THAT'LL FIX YA, YOU FRIGGIN MONSTERS!"

I just watched Zombi 3, the Fulci film mostly directed by Bruno Mattei. It somehow manages to be both monumentally awful and relentlessly entertaining. There's very little Fulci on display, but in a film that pays homage to (read: liberally rips off) Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, The Evil Dead, Return of the Living Dead, The Birds, and Vanishing Point, there's also very little opportunity for boredom.

The nonsensical zombie action is pretty much non-stop, and by the time I got to the refrigerator scene, I knew I'd discovered something special.

THE WALKING DEAD

Julia should be around shortly with a review of the most recent issues of The Walking Dead. After what seems like a few years of little to no forward motion, the series is picking up steam.

NORWEGIAN NAZI ZOMBIES

Check this out.

I guess they just got Evil Dead 2 in Norway. With any luck, this will actually be fun.

Zombie 3 sounds like a treat... Will be keeping my out for it now for sure.

Today I'm planning to puck up "Night of the Living Dead 3D!" I'm sure it's gonna be cheesy as hell... but also very amusing.

Oh, man. NIGHT 3D? Don't say I didn't warn you. :)
