Post-apocalyptic class struggle + zombie evolution = (b)Land of the Dead

Welcome zed-fans!

In the 30th episode of Reanimated, the gang reviews a disappointing George Romero's Land of the Dead from 2005. While the movie brings the star power (Leguizamo, Hopper), it fails to impress with the story. The usual assortment of zombie news rounds out the show this week, such as:

News

1. Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies! Time to put that zombie in a sleeper hold, because that totally works on them.

3. I'm really sorry about this one. It's Zomboobies, you guys.

4. This ad for the Canadian Film Festival was pretty much the best thing to happen to the internet in a while.

5. Eek! Those adorable Mustelidae are actually zombie otters!

6. Israel's supposed first zombie film is influenced by the movie World War Z? Really?

Episode 6: [REC] (2007) and Quarantine (2008)

After a month (!) of absence due to traveling, summer weddings and general busy-ness, we're back working on the podcast. We checked out two films simultaneously this episode - [REC] (2007) and Quarantine (2008). Stuart barely held on through this recording thanks to some advanced Solanum virus he contracted on those flying petri dishes called commercial aircraft.

We also covered some of the usual crazy Zed-News out there, including:

Zombie Burger - an Iowan eatery that presents its cuisine a la zombie. Check out a recent(ish) NPR piece and their Facebook page

IGN.com put up this video of Seth Rogen playing the opening scenes of an upcoming PS3 game, "The Last of Us" It's an entertaining viewing. Unrelated tidbit: developers had to revamp the face of game character Ellie after she turned out looking too much like Ellen Page.

Comicon came and went and left us with this AWESOME trailer for The Walking Dead Season 4. 

Japan created a live action amusement experience called Resident Evil The Real. It looks bananas

And finally: feral zombie cat herds attack French people. yikes!
