Having enjoyed the zombie video game DEAD ISLAND, I picked up the new release of the makers’ DYING LIGHT, which is a bit more serious and gritty, and with more features to enhance the game experience. Now I just need a decent block of time to give it a good run.

Check some of the game play here:

Crackle.com has produced an original made-for-digital film, DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER, based on the popular game franchise.

The movie looks to play itself firmly tongue-in-cheek, which I think works really well for zombies in a movie format (such as ZOMBIELAND) but not so well in TV (Z NATION). Conversely, I think achieving the right balance needed to do zombies as a serious drama works better in TV (THE WALKING DEAD) but not as well in movies, though there are a few notable exceptions (such as 28 DAYS LATER).

Anyway, it looks like fun. Check out the trailer below. The movie will be available for streaming March 27, 2015.

The Hollywood Reporter recently reported that THE 28 DAYS LATER duology might become a trilogy with another film likely to be titled, 28 MONTHS LATER. Talks are apparently currently underway.

28 DAYS LATER was the movie that got me interested in zombies and inspired me to write zombie fiction. So count me interested.

Mitchell and Webb, a comedy duo in the UK, bring us The Quiz Broadcast in an apocalyptic age. Funny, but filled with dark humor, surprisingly even some sadness.
