Rick and The Walking Dead Are Holding It Together…for Now

Two good episodes of The Walking Dead in a row is not an unheard of occurrence, but it is auspicious. “The Bridge” continues last week’s strong narrative start as Rick, Maggie, and the others try to keep everyone united into one community, but a few cracks are beginning to show – and the same can be said of the TV series, too.

The Walking Dead Gets the Fresh Start We’ve Been Waiting For

Were you sort of dreading the season nine premiere of The Walking Dead? I was. The series has had increasing problems since the beginning of the boring, interminable Savior War, and the show’s declining ratings back that up. But I’m surprised—and happy!—to report that the season nine premiere really feels like a new beginning, and damned if it didn’t make me excited for the show all over again…mostly. Read More >>

Short Film A Father’s Day Imagines a Gruesomely Sweet Zombie Family Reunion 

Most zombie tales are set just as the outbreak is happening, as desperate people — often families, as seen in recent films like Cargo and Train to Busan, but going all the way back to Night of the Living Dead — try to protect their loved ones. This short puts a refreshingly different perspective on the familiar. Read More >>

Florida City Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma

No one should ever screw around on a public alert system. But considering it’s been a bad year for warning systems — from the Hawaii false emergency alert accidentally informing the public of an incoming missile that didn’t exist to the National Weather Service’s false tsunami warning to the Department of Justice’s Amber Alert site issues that redirected visitors to porn sites — now is an especially bad time for someone to be screwing around on an alert system.

The Walking Dead Didn’t Earn Its Season Finale in the Slightest

I don’t think I’ve ever watched a more self-satisfied, obnoxious episode of television in my life. But what’s even more obnoxious is that the season eight finale of The Walking Dead was still gratifying to me, too, if only because it looks like it finally got the AMC show back on the right track (...maybe).

Important Announcement: The Walking Dead Was Actually Fine Last Night

No, seriously. I know it may sound impossible after this deeply troubled second-half of season eight, but The Walking Dead pulled off an episode that had no major issues and was pretty compelling because it actually advanced a lot of storylines while also setting up some major stakes for the season finale. See, Walking Dead makers? It’s not that hard! Read More >>

Thorpe Park’s Walking Dead-Themed Year Needs Zombies, Auditions to be Held on Top of a Rollercoaster

Despite the fact I stopped watching The Walking Dead  four years ago, the series trundles on. Proving that nobody actually cares about my opinion when it comes to American TV. It's such a big deal that even Thorpe Park is tying in with the show, with a series of zombie-themed events throughout 2018. Read More >>

Biologist: We’re Completely Unprepared to Handle a Zombie Outbreak

A zombie virus may not be at the top of your list of likely apocalypses, but I think we can all agree that it would suck to get caught unprepared. Unfortunately, we are. As proven by countless movies, TV shows, and novels, society is woefully unready to deal with an infectious, flesh-eating horde. Read More >>

Why is it That Zombies Eat Brains?

Zombies have been a pop culture staple for decades, and in that time the concept of the dead coming back to life somehow to feast on the living has proliferated virtually every form of media that exists. One trait that is seemingly synonymous with zombies is their apparent need to feed on the brains of the living. But why is this idea so intrinsically linked with zombies and where did it come from?

Zombie Chopping Boards are Possibly the Most Student Thing Ever

We're now past the first week of October, which is traditionally right about the time that students realise that they might need more in their kitchen than an endless supply of Super Noodles and beer. If you're on the hunt for a chopping board to do some actual cooking on (or just to lower the tone a little further), these undead chopping boards should just about do it. Read More >>
