Anchor Bay is releasing The Amazing Adventures Of The Living Corpse on DVD and Blu-Ray this June 18th.

The film premiered at last year’s Comic-Con to much fanfare, and is CG animation zombie fare firmly planted in the realm of horror and fantasy. It’s based on a Dynamite! comic book entitled The Living Corpse Exhumed, by Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson. The film is directed by Justin Paul Ritter.

Little *Ucker premiere & more at La Severed Head fest tonight

  • Fangoria
Filmmaker Justin Paul Ritter tipped Fango off that Little *Ucker (pictured), the stoner-goblin flick he produced for FX-artist-turned-director Michael Muscal, is set to have its world premiere this evening at 10 p.m. at La’s 1st Annual Severed Head Film Festival. The event will also showcase Ritter’s anthology chiller A Gothic Tale, which plays Friday, October 31 at 2 p.m. (see the full schedule below).

“To finally have A Gothic Tale and Little *Ucker completed and ready to show people is really exciting,” says Ritter, who previously helmed the indie shocker Katiebird*Certifiable Crazy Person. “These movies were both made to satisfy particular hardcore viewer bases, and we really hope we can create avenues for those people to learn about the movies and see for themselves.

Katiebird Directed to Animate Living Corpse

Ever-busy genre actor Lee Perkins (Katiebird: Certifiable Crazy Person, Live Evil) jut dropped us a line with some very cool early info on one of his next projects. Perkins is getting ready to transition from the world of physical acting to voice acting for Justin Paul Ritter’s The Living Corpse!

Ritter is the man behind Katiebird, the film that first brought Perkins to our attention, and now he’s branching out by doing The Living Corpse, his first animated feature. The film is based on the comic of the same name, the creation of Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson, and is the story of a somewhat self-aware zombie who takes it up on himself to keep the rest of his undead brethren at bay.

Perkins is doing the voice of Timmons, the Administrator of the East Bend Boarding School, where displaced children find themselves. We’re not sure how
