If you haven’t seen PONTYPOOL yet, you should give it a watch. The “zombies” in the film are people infected with a virus that exists in language, which makes them violently insane.

Rhonny Reaper of Dollar Bin Horror reviews THE INFECTION, my new novel of apocalyptic horror published by Permuted Press, and says: “From the very first chapter … I was drawn into this story of not just horror, but of sacrifice … This book proves that just because it’s ‘indie’ horror doesn’t mean it couldn’t stand alongside the greats. The book is simply stunning.” Thanks, Rhonny!

And another interesting zombie movie coming out this year …
The zombies were awesome and genuinely scary. The apocalyptic and action scenes were exciting and very well done. But the characters were largely unsympathetic, and some of the storyline was completely corny. THE HORDE: one of those zombie movies you’ll really enjoy watching and then forget about a few hours later.
