‘iZombie 4×10′ Review

Stars: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders | Created by Diane Ruggiero, Rob Thomas

I said that last week’s episode of iZombie was a bit of a structural mess but it was entertaining regardless. This week, however, I can’t say the same as this feels like a filler episode. It seems to drag to the point where it’s uncertain how the show is going to have so many plot threats pay off by the finale which is three weeks away.

In this episode, Liv eats the brain of a renegade cop which means get ready for a few Die Hard puns which is typical iZombie humour. The good thing about the show’s humour is that it is incredibly self-aware and meta but this episode is more style than substance so it makes the bad parts of this episode more apparent.

iZombie Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Yipee Ki Brain, Motherscratcher

Um, okay iZombie Fanatics. Let's get this out of the way. 

iZombie Season 4 Episode 10 was a colossally dull hour. It was as aggravating as it was wearisome, and that is not what I expect when there are only three installments left of the season. 

iZombie's ability to string fans along episode by episode while simultaneously making fans forget that they have a shortened season is a blessing and a curse. Here, it's a curse, because, with so little of the season remaining, I don't know what to expect by the finale. 

The biggest issue is that the concept of this season was ambitious and bold. The possibilities were endless. There were so many directions the series could go into; the show hit a reset button. 

It was highly-anticipated, and maybe the bar was set too high along the way. I don't know. What I do know is that there are

Bluray Review: Disturbing Behavior

After being responsible for this year’s Bluray release of Zombie High, the gang at Scream Factory must have decided to put out a film with a similar plot, a better soundtrack and a much more entertaining ride, 1998’s Disturbing Behavior. While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that shows just how far actors like James Marsden and Katie Holmes have come, while it’s also somewhat of sad look at Nick Stahl, a very good actor who has since fallen on some very hard times.

X-Files regular David Nutter gives viewers the tale of Steve (James Marsden, X-men, The Notebook), a young man who transfers into a school that like most other schools, are sectioned off by varying types of stereotypes. The outcasts led by Holmes and Stahl doing their best Hot Topic regular performances, the stoners, and most interestingly, the

iZombie season 2 episode 10 review: Method Head

Underneath all the meta gags, iZombie laid the foundation for some game-changing developments in its midseason return...

This review contains spoilers.

2.10 Method Head

iZombie is back in the Us with its midseason premiere, and boy did it get meta. Much of the action revolved around a murder on the set of "Zombie High," an in-universe TV series with a plot you can probably guess. The resulting jokes and references resulted in an enjoyable hour of television.

TV shows tend to do a good job when writing about TV shows. After all, its a subject close to home, one writers know well enough to both poke fun at and recreate with enough realistic elements to ground any fantastical or farcical elements. This was the case with Method Head, which took place largely on the set of "Zombie High."

Though the murder wasn't particularly compelling, the investigation was the

Blu-ray Review: Zombie High

  • DailyDead
High schools have seen their share of monsters in the movies, be they werewolves (Teen Wolf, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, Ginger Snaps), vampires (Twilight, My Best Friend is a Vampire), aliens (The Faculty), or just your average, garden-shear variety slasher (Prom Night, Scream, etc.). You might think that the 1987 horror film Zombie High attempts to bring the undead to the high school hallway. You would be wrong. For proof, check out Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray of Zombie High, which isn’t really a zombie movie and is barely even a horror film.

Virginia Madsen plays Andrea, a young woman who transfers to an elite boarding school against the wishes of her jock boyfriend, Barry (James Wilder). Once there, she begins to realize that things aren’t quite as they seem. Her friends (including Sherilyn Fenn, Scott Coffey and a pre-Freaks & Geeks Paul Feig) are transforming from cool, rebellious

iZombie Season 2 Photos: Liv Gets Starstruck, Ravi Delivers Disappointing News

What would you look like if you walked onto the set of your favorite TV show? Probably a lot like Liv does in these photos from iZombie‘s winter premiere. In the pictures below from the episode, which is titled “Method Head,” Liv heads to the set of her number one show, Zombie High, after its main star has been killed, and even though the description for the hour says that she’s “crushed” by the news, it seems that meeting the rest of the cast certainly perks her up. However, what’s most interesting about these photos is that Liv appears to be back

Bluray Review: Zombie High, The Dungeonmaster/Eliminators

The gang at Scream Factory has done an excellent job bringing some of Empire Pictures’ earlier films to the masses with new blurays that for the most part, offer some good transfers and a hefty amount of new supplemental material for fans of those ’80s gems. They’ve also looked into long lost genre films from that era, bringing some of the horror films that time has for one way or another forgotten about. For the most part, it’s a refreshing feeling to rediscover those films and sometimes, like in the case of Zombie High, you kind of wish they would have stayed lost.

If you’re in need of a large dose of ’80s genre craziness, this week sees both the bad: Zombie High And the good: The Dungeonmaster/Eliminators. We took a look at both releases and are here to give you fright fanatics a heads up

First Look Promo For iZombie Mid-Season Premiere

The CW has released the first promo video for the iZombie mid-season premiere, which can be viewed above. While the title of Season Two’s tenth episode has yet to be disclosed, we can extrapolate some details from the video.

It looks as though a fictitious television show called “Zombie High” will serve as the backdrop for this particular episode. Considering that Liv says “Last night I was watching ‘Zombie High’ and now I’m in it,” it stands to reason that she may be investigating the murder of a member of the cast or crew. Whether or not she lands some kind of role on the show remains to be seen. It also looks like we can expect Ravi to continue his vigilant search for those corpses with tainted Utopium on their person.

Since no official synopsis is available as of this time, we can look to two major

Blu-ray Review: Zombie High

Obscure and underrated 80’s horror satire Zombie High comes to Blu-ray. I avoided Zombie High for years as it was clear from the (mostly terrible) reviews at the time that it was not really a “proper” zombie movie at all. No virus. No apocalypse. No flesh-eating. No thanks. And since, circa 1987, horror fans wanted these…

Horror at the Oscars Part III

Tremors? Nightbreed? Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat? 976-evil? Are all on the list this year. And though there were not huge horror wins in sound editing through screenplays, the Technical Awards never cease to bring out the horror veterans. Notably Tim Drnec who contributed to such VHS classics as Alien Seed, Destroyer, and Prison won for his work on “Spydercam 3D volumetric suspended cable camera technologies.” An award also shared with Ben Britten Smith and Matt Davis who both also worked on Constantine.

But among all the winners, the Academy also honored some great loses in 2010. And though they mentioned some of our heroes, Dennis Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Dino de Laurentiis (King Kong), they did not mention Zelda Rubinstein or Corey Haim. But we will in this last section and the others lost to us last year.
