I’m a sucker for subscription boxes but some are just to general for my taste. I like lots of nerdy stuff, and with the various geek boxes out there, I can get some amazing stuff, but I can also get an action figure for The Flash ( which I don’t care much about just now) and cans of “Unicorn Meat” (no thanks). I have a small house, I travel too much to give unwanted toys and gags away to any friends, and I just don’t want to waste things by getting things I don’t want. What I need is a Zombie Subscription Box.

A day at Wizard World Comic Con Raleigh

blog, Zombie Art, Zombie Things to do By March 18, 2015 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

We were a little ways south in Savannah, Georgia when we heard about the Wizard World Comic Con in Raleigh. Neither of us had been to one, despite living in Portland, Oregon for years, and on the road ,we always manage to miss them or be on the opposite side of the country. I’d been to an Anime Con before, with the featured band’s entourage, and I hoped for something a little bigger, better, and less filled with teens. I was not disappointed.

The Generation of Z: Edinburgh

Zombie Events By July 10, 2014 No Comments

If every city in the world could have a fully interactive Zombie live action theater experience like Generation of Z, I would go to as many as I could. Of course, this might make it less special if they were so common but, I don’t care.. I want to go and often (I should probably just work at one)! Next time we go to the UK we were hoping to see Scotland so this could work out great.

The Generation of Z currently has a Kickstarter campaign that they’ve so far been successful with, and the more money the better the show!

The Generation of Z is a site-specific, immersive, theatrical event set within the maelstrom of a zombie apocalypse. There are no seats, no stage, no niceties and definitely no “fourth wall”. As the audience, you are in the thick of it from the first gunshot to its violent and thrilling finale.

Cape Town Zombie Walk for Animals Needs Help!

Zombie Events By June 27, 2014 No Comments

Each year, thousands of zombies meet at a designated location in the mother city, dressed to … um… die? all in the name of charity. The gorier, the better as the undead meet to begin their walk to raise awareness. Last year, the Lucky Lucy Foundation, an organisation which acts as an   ambassador for animals who are being abused or neglected, was the charity of choice.

They gather in their packs or herds or do zombies travel solo? Whatever it is, that zombie apocalypse we were all secretly preparing for may well be upon us … no need to protect yourself against them, this is one army you can actually join!

The Zombie Walk started out really small as something “fun to do” and has since grown into an annual event where in late October (just in time for Halloween), zombies unite all in the name of a good cause.

Well, it’s almost that time of the year again…

Walking Dead can take some pointers from our enthusiastic Capetonians who pull off the zombie-look quite realistically. Is this why we’re known as the laidback province? Hmm.

The costumes are radical and the make-up exemplary. The moans and grunts emanating from the crowd will have any innocent victim… sorry, bystander, paralysed with fear.

This year the Zombie Walk will begin at Thibault Square at 17H00 and the horde of living dead will march together, according to the Facebook page: Zombie Walk (Cape Town), “demanding brains.” It’s a walk “aimed at raising people’s awareness on social negligence.”

Short Film: Steadfast Stanley – Never Leave Family Behind

Video of the Week By May 19, 2014 No Comments

I hear again and again how many gung-ho survivalists would definitely leave their pets behind if there was a zombie apocalypse (the same people who would kill their neighbours for food) but, I, most definitely would not.

For one, I’d be prepared to include everyone in my family (and pets are family by the way, not property). And two, pet owners agreed to a responsibility when they picked up their critters and they should take it seriously. Always protect the innocent.

That being said, I want to share this awesome short called Steadfast Stanley about a Welsh Corgi left behind in the zombie apocalypse by an inconsiderate adult:

Too Young to Die – True Fear, on an Instinctual Level

Video of the Week By May 12, 2014 No Comments

A new film that’s currently looking for funding on IndieGoGo is going to be both frightening as hell and more visceral than any zombie film out there. How? Basically, no one wants to see the innocent get hurt – well, most of us don’t, and Too Young To Die explores a perspective of a zombie outbreak that most people won’t even attempt, the children’s perspective.

The Setup:

After a train crash, a small village in the North of England is overrun with the living dead. As the authorities are scattered, a group of children are kept hidden in their school, protected by the last few teachers. But when the creatures find a way in, the children find themselves alone and on the run in a city saturated in blood and suffering. Together, they keep each other safe as they look for help and survival, unsure if they are alone in this terror – or if the whole world is now overrun…

Everyone knows Carl Grimes from The Walking Dead, and for those of us who are up to speed with the series, we’ve seen what kinds of things he’s had to deal with, learn and accomplish – No childhood, no peers, only death. Now imagine a group of kids without a skilled team of adult zombie killers to protect them? Would they all die or would they adapt? Does their age play a factor in their ability to tap into survival instincts that adults have long ago lost? I’d like to know! Too Young to Die may be the best way to find out!
