To celebrate the release of the Blu-ray of Kevin Conner's horror comedy classic Motel Hell, Arrow Video have released a new online trailer showcasing what the deluxe edition has to offer.
Here's the official word from Arrow Video:
As with previous critically acclaimed releases, including George A. Romero’s “Knightriders”, Mario Bava’s “Baron Blood” and Lucio Fulci’s “Zombie Flesh Eaters”, Motel Hell has been given the “Arrow treatment”. In addition to the beautiful high-def restoration, this deluxe Blu-ray & DVD dual format edition will come complete with a wealth of special features and bonus material, including director’s audio commentary and filmed interviews with cast members, three brand new and exclusive featurettes, original trailers and promotional material, and a collectors booklet featuring new writing on the film by renowned critic Kim Newman alongside extracts from Motel Hell the comic book.
And here is the official synopsis:

Zombie Squash represents the sort of simple perfection that marks a damn fine portable game: an easy-to-digest concept, accessible controls, and bite-sized levels that are perfect for anything from a bus ride to a bowel movement. Players are cast as Peter Stompingtail, a lethal lepus who must defend his garden from the titular zombie squash with his own violent vegetables, an arsenal ranging from carrots to zucchini launched from a crossbow and replenished by his bunny brethren.
While at initial glance Zombie Squash may seem like a lot of other titles on the App Store, even bearing more than a passing resemblance to PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies, it has a few interesting wrinkles to separate it from the crowd. The soundtrack, composed by Roy Z, is some properly headbanging metal that definitely adds a pretty substantial level of auditory mayhem to the proceedings, and even the theme song is both goofy and oh-so-catchy. »

For the past seven years, Rob Sacchetto has made a living by hand painting people as the living dead. To date, he has zombified over 2700 people from around the world, including George Romero, Tom Savini, Max Brooks and Greg Nicotero. We previously featured Rob on our Indie Spotlight and wanted to run a separate Q&A feature to find out more about his life as a zombie artist:
For our readers who are unfamiliar with Zombie Daily, can you tell us a little bit about the work you do?
Rob Sacchetto: I was drawing Zombies as early as grade 4 or 5 among other things, and have consistently drawn them since then. They were never a fad to me. I didn’t just start drawing Zombies recently because they’ve become more in vogue. I’ve always drawn monsters, dinosaurs, robots, and sci-fi/horror stuff all of my life.

In 2012,the deceased have risen from their graves with only one instinct-to feed on the living. Academics speculate on the scientific cause of the phenomena and theologians point to the Armageddon foretold in the Book of Revelation. But as the cities are over run and civilization crumbles, four generations of one family take refuge from the undead army in an isolated farmhouse in West Wales.
Based on the 1968 zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection is not a direct remake of George Romero’s original, instead it takes inspiration from the original movie, often playing with the audiences expectations and subverting the events that you would expect, given the trend of “remakes”, to take place.
Very much an amateur production, and »

Roy Z is a badass musician and producer who is known for his killer work with Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and Judas Priest. We recently chatted with Roy about his work on the Zombie Squash game starring George A. Romero, his current music projects and much more.
Amanda Dyar: Tell us, what have you been up to nowadays?
Roy Z: I've been mixing, writing, recording and developing artist, working with new young artists, teaching, you name it. I'm currently mixing, what I would call an international group, because they're all from different countries, called One Machine. I'm mixing their debut now. My good buddy, Steve Smythe is in the band, who, when I first met him, was in Testament in 2003 when we toured together with Halford. I've also been working and developing a group called Art of Shock. I'm doing their Ep now and they're going »

Ok, folks. It’s official. The zombie thing has gone on way too long. Time to stomp them back into the ground and move on.
Truth be told, and with all due respect to George Romero and Robert Kirkman, I was never much of a zombie fan. There’s not a lot you can do with the buggers, and even by stretching the rules and applying our contemporary wussification of the monster legends… there’s still not that much you can do with them.
There have been zombie stories that I’ve enjoyed, particularly Stan Lee and Bill Everett’s classic “Zombie!” from Menace #5, July 1953. Twenty years later this inspired something of a revival with Marvel’s black-and-white magazine Tales of the Zombie. Or, in other words, it took two decades and the combined talents of Roy Thomas, Steve Gerber, John Buscema and Tom Palmer to finally come up with a worthy sequel. »

Scream Factory's lineup of Summer 2013 titles just keeps getting more awesome as the weeks go by. This morning on their Facebook page, they unveiled the supreme cover art for their forthcoming Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of George A. Romero's 1985 classic Day of the Dead: Conceived by artist Nathan Thomas Milliner, the cover is one of the wildest interpretations of the zombie classic, naturally with the gun-wielding "Bub" leading the pack. More details on the disc's release date and features will be revealed this summer. In related news: last week we announced the pending arrival of Scream Factory's double-disc debut of rare slashers X-Ray and Schizoid, but for a more in-depth look at X-Ray (released on VHS in the Us as Hospital Massacre), be sure to check out Tyler Doupe's “Be Kind, Rewind” feature here. »

I’m just going to say it: George Romero’s Day Of The Dead is by Far my favorite of the original dead trilogy of his. Sure Night Of The Living Dead is awesome, and we all know that its sequel, Dawn Of The Dead is the bee’s knees. With all of that being said, it was Day Of The Dead that for odd reason, always seemed to resonate with me. Maybe it’s the complete downer vibe that runs throughout the whole film, maybe it’s my love for Joe Pilato’s performance as Captain Rhodes..or c’mon, let’s be honest here: it has what the first two dead films lacked: Bub!!
Well, thanks to the folks at the ever-reliable Scream Factory, the official key art for their Day Of The Dead Bluray coming out this year has now found its way online and into the minds of us Romero fans. »
Overnight, Scream Factory revealed the Blu-ray art for its forthcoming collector's edition of Day of the Dead. Says Sf: "Artist Nathan Thomas Milliner strikes again! Check out his latest Ott design that will grace our upcoming Collector's Edition release of George Romero's classic Day Of The Dead! More specific details on the release (exact street date, extras) will be revealed this Summer so keep checking back!" Head inside for the art! What do you think?

Nick Lyon, who previously directed the Ving Rhames starring Zombie Apocalypse, returns the the land of the living dead with Rise of the Zombies, another Syfy channel original movie that tells the story of a group of survivors holed up in Alcatraz, well away from the zombie plague. However when their island refuge is overrun by the undead they take the risk of heading back to the mainland to find a scientist who is rumored to have found a cure for the disease.
From the very opening of Rise of the Zombies you know that this film is going to be different. First off there is a solid explanation for the existence of the undead – in this case a virus has »

Douglas Schulze’s Mimesis was a film that caught me off guard. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d like it, and was pleasantly shocked when not only did I Really enjoy it (review), but also spent a lot of time thinking about it after it was over. It’s a good look at how far some “fans” will go in order to get closer to a real life horror film. Judging from how well received the film has been with horror fans, this news should bring smiles across plenty of faces.

In a day and age where zombie movies are a dime a dozen, filmmakers have to do something in order to stand out from the crowd. It's not enough to just show the walking dead running or lumbering toward victims and then eating them. There's only so many times you can be shocked by a flesh-eater getting plugged in the head with a rifle. George Romero, Danny Broiled, and countless other directors have already given us those moments hundreds of times over. Unfortunately, State of Emergency is another in a long line of films that brings nothing new to the table at all.
A chemical plant explodes outside a small town. The residents soon show signs of contamination and become ravenous animals with an appetite for flesh. The government closes off the town, leaving any survivors in the area to fend for themselves. Four people holed up in a warehouse »

Zombie Squash is now available for free on iOS devices and stars the legendary George A. Romero as Dr. B.E. Vil, an evil scientist with plans to take over the world with some rowdy undead veggies!
We recently chatted with the game’s creator, Attila Juhasz, about bringing this undead project to life. Read on to learn more.
Amanda Dyar: Tell us a little about yourself and Acw Games/Attila's Creative Works LLC.
Attila Juhasz: I'm creatively obsessed. (chuckles) I love to create and am most happy when I write, design, program, produce or compose. Having a jack-of-all-trades personality lead me to start Acw Games, a division of Attila's Creative Works LLC, which I formed in 2005. All my passions culminate in the creation of a game.

Typically, horror fans go crazy for fright flicks with a body count totaling in the double digits, or higher. Case in point, Dawn of the Dead has a reported death toll of 175; Army of Darkness has an estimated 107 total kills (both statistics from moviebodycounts.com); and both films are tried and true fan favorites for their liberal use of violence as well as countless other reasons. We enthusiastically commend George Romero and Sam Raimi for offering up a staggering body counts in these and many of their other films. We frequently pay tribute to horror films and horror killers that rack up above average kill counts, but it’s rare that we make a point to recognize characters that made a major impact on us without incurring a massive death toll. With that said, we have elected to take the opportunity to spotlight some killers and their corresponding films that »

Night of the Living Dead Resurrection claims to be A Brand New Take on the Horror Classic clearly telegraphing that this is based on the 1968 masterpiece Night of the Living Dead directed by the legendary George A. Romero. That may be true this may be based on the film that also lends its name but if thats true then Zombieland Zombie Lake Zombies Zombies Zombies and Resident Evil are also based on Night of the Living Dead because they all have zombies in them too. The presence of zombies is the only thing this film has in common with Romeros classic. »
Today saw the release of the Graveyard of Empires trade paperback, collecting the popular zombie mini-series from Mark Sable and Paul Azaceta. We recently had a chance to talk with the two of them, and learned about the research that went into the story, the reaction the book received from the military community, and the possibility of a Graveyard of Empires movie:
About Graveyard of Empires: “Afghanistan. U.S. Marines face a never-ending onslaught of Taliban. But even hell can get worse. The dead are coming back to life in The Graveyard of Empires, and only together can both sides of the today’s conflict survive tomorrow’s undead assault. Writer Mark Sable (Unthinkable, Two-Face Year One) reunites with his Grounded co-creator, Paul Azaceta (Amazing Spider-Man) to tell this critically claimed, controversial tale of terror. Featuring an all-new story created by Paul Azaceta in his comics writing debut!”
