World War Z to film in Glasgow this Summer

Great news for Scottish zombie fans! WWZ is coming to Glasgow.

World War Z scenes to be shot in Glasgow

Key scenes from Brad Pitt's production of World War Z are apparently due to be shot in city centre locations such as Cochrane Street and George Square this August. Time to book that Scottish holiday.

As a veritable uber-fest of zed-heads the production is going to need plenty of enthusiastic locals ready to don shredded clothes, make up and lashing of fake blood and gore.

As the production is likely to involve up to 1200 people Glasgow City Council has estimated that the global zombie epic will bring over £2m to the local economy.

Location manager for World War Z, Michael Harm, said: “The production spent many months looking for the perfect city centre location to play an important part in the film. Glasgow's architecture, wide roads and grid layout proved the ideal setting for director Marc Forster."

Businesses in keys areas where filming will take place have been consulted about the production.

Leader of Glasgow City Council, Councillor Gordon Matheson, said: “Our distinctive Victorian architecture has proved a vital attraction to many location managers over the years, and it is great news that the producers have decided to come to Glasgow. "The decision to use Glasgow as a location for the production was made after production staff met with Glasgow City Council's Film Office. They have reportedly worked together for the past month to secure locations.

Dead Genesis: Trailer

Every once in a while there's something about a movie that makes it stand out from the crowd, and when it is an independent movie about zombies, it tends make an even more startling impression. Dead Genesis is one such picture.

Dead Genesis: Zombies

The first five minutes of the film leaps up, grabs you by the short and curlies and yanks you right into the fray. 'Did they really just do that?'

Dead Genesis: Hunting Party
Dead Genesis: Synopsis
Seven months have passed since the dead took over. Many cities and states have been abandoned and left to die. Several self-sufficient hunting groups have been established to take on the threat in a war aptly referred to as the 'War on Dead'.

Dead Genesis: Jillian Hurst (Emily Alatolo).

Jillian Hurst, a former news writer and amateur documentary maker, has set out to make a pro-war propaganda film to support the W.O.D. She joins up with a pack of renegade hunters known infamously to North America as 'the deadheads'. The moral dynamics and hardships of fighting in a war against the undead are told from the perspectives of the individual members of the group.

Dead Genesis: The Deadheads.

Unlike copycat cash-ins Dead Genesis has something to say. In the true spirit of Romero, Dead Genesis is thought provoking, has some incredible performances from the likes of Emily Alatolo (as Jillian Hurst) and Colin Paradine (as Korvin) as pace and drama that cements the film as something significantly above the average popcorn offering.


Dead Genesis was shot on a Panasonic HVX 200 with a single 32GB P2 card, with a crew of four and and cast that would chip in whenever they needed to make things work. Far from an amateurish affair, the documentary style cinematography are reminiscent of a high budget BBC drama, the Savini inspired effects are amazing and the editing first rate. The sum is far greater than the part and the final product belies the miniscule budget the film was pulled together with.

Directed by Reese Eveneshen, Dead Genesis was clearly made with an intense passion for the genre, unrelenting enthusiasm and incredible talent from everyone involved.

It is a fantastic piece of horror cinema - well worth checking out.

Stone offered Lead in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

Emma Stone has already faced off against hordes of brain-munching undead in Zombieland and it looks like now the actress will even more firmly cement her place as queen of the zed-heads by picking up the lead role in the movie adaptation of the boobs 'n' bonnets 'n' zombies mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Elizabeth Bennet, meet Emma Stone.

The movie, directed by Craig Gillespie and produced by Lionsgate, takes the much -loved classic Jane Austen tale and slaps on a heavy dose Romero-esque action.

Our eternal heroine, Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence is further complicated by an outbreak of a deadly virus that means the dead just won;' stay dead and they have an insatiable appetite for human flesh.

Stone has just finished filming her role as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, which hits cinemas next summer.

Rise of Nightmares: Welcome to The Nightmare Trailer

Welcome to the Nightmare...


Rise of Nightmares. Sega's 360 Kinect Zombie Slasher.

Check out this trailer for Sega's up and coming hand to hand zombie-fest for Xbox 360 connect.

Clockwork clowns and a zombie horde
Lucky for us, just as we hoped, it's pretty much mostly all about the zombie-slaying. As the trailer reveals the game features a murderous madman, a horde of zombies, clockwork clowns, brain worms and copious buckets of blood.



Rise of Nightmares - Scary?
Still not sure if it'll actually be scary, after all, it's on Kinect, but as the trailer suggests, we think Sega's Rise of Nightmares is certainly aimed at a little more mature audience than Kinectimals.

Kill The Zombies (By Shooting Them In The Head)

In the midst of rumours about a possible return to the Half-Life franchise for Valve, something we would be fully supportive of, here's a little something to remind us of those glory days of flashlights and ammo conservation.


We were thinking about starting a petition.

'Bring back crowbars in first person shooters.' Agreed?

Another World (2011) HD Teaser trailer

With Another World in the final stages of editing things are looking good for zombi-philes in 2011
Another World - theatrical release poster.

Another World is set in a near post apocalyptic future where a biological warfare program goes wrong, and turns most of humanity to mindless, murderous creatures. Just the way we like our experimental genetic research.

Another World - 'Viral' Zombie movie.
The story centres around five characters, all still uninfected, trying to survive constant attacks from the infected. Each character represents a different aspect of human existence, a different world-view, and a different moral standpoint about the world and their place in it.

A Doctor, a professional soldier, a scientist, a young girl and a man with a dubious and immoral past.

They said five characters -  so who's missing?
The film takes place during the character's last six days. As the days progress, they listen to a radio show about the extinction of the dinosaurs which strikes a chord with their own desperate situation.

Another World - Production Still.
As they move and try to stay alive, and as their world views and correlations to the situation are slowly reveled, we explore the essence of evil, the boundaries of moral responsibility, the extinction of humankind, love, grace, euthanasia in this hellish new addition to the genre.

Zombie-philes to 'Attack' Leicester Tomorrow - 18th June 2011

Over 200 people dressed as zombies have confirmed they will shamble on up to the city tomorrow in an impromptu zombie walk.

Over 200 'zombies' are expected to attend. Picture from afp via bbc.co.uk
Following revelations that they were unprepared for a zombie attack. Enthusiasts are planning to "attack" Leicester a week after the city council admitted it was unprepared for such an invasion.

Facebook Zombie Invasion Event
After a "concerned citizen" used a Freedom of Information request to ascertain what the council would do in the wake of an uprising of the undead James Dixon, 26 had the idea a for Saturday's event - organised on Facebook -  which was initially just a way to catch up with a few friends.

An undead horde of an estimed 200 "zombies" is now anticipated to attend Saturday's event.
The Freedom of Information request stated: "Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for."

After-apocalypse party
Mr Dixon commented: "I saw the story trending on Twitter and thought it was really funny that someone had FOI'd that information, and that the council had taken in it a quite a good-humoured way. "I jokingly tweeted that this is our chance to attack, which was quite well received."

Leicester City Council has not commented about how it will cope with the arrival of these walking dead and last week their head of information governance, Lynn Wyeth, said that the original Freedom of Information [FOI] request had made them laugh. "Everybody has their own interests and their own reasons for asking these questions," she said.

Mr Dixon has put some serious thought into organising the event, there is a "strictly zombie" dress code and more than likely an "after-apocalypse" party. "There's a pub that has offered the zombies refuge after our 'attack', so we'll probably do that," he said.

See the full zombie invasion story on the BBC News Leicester website.

Nerf Vortex Range - Improved Zomb-pocalypse Rehearsal!

Nerf has long been the staple of intense, action-heavy zombie live action roleplaying games.

Nerf and Zombie Live Action Role Playing; Why?
Well, Nerf blasters are great value, come in bright colours so you won't get yourself into trouble with 'The Man' if someone sees you with one and, they look awesome, taking inspiration from anything from Aliens, Warhammer 40K and Halo and lastly, and possibly most importantly, they allow you to shoot your friends at point blank range in the head. So,allow us zombie LARP gamers to run a zombie simulation without having to resort to goggles and face masks.

Take a Nerf blaster outside or try to hit someone on the other side of a college gymnasium and you quickly realise the range limitations of even a modified blaster. Sniping? A nice idea but not a realistic option.

All that may change with the introduction of the new Vortex range of blasters. Zombie Shop takes a quick look at the most exciting thing to hit the Nerf arsenal since the clip system. The Vortex blaster puts new blaster technology to devastatingly good effect.

The Nerf Vigilon - Judge Dredd's Lawgiver?
New clip-system
The new blaster range does away with the clip-system that is the standard for most current blasters and introduces disc ammo - what looks like little mini Frisbees. Whilst information on the blasters is limited at best, one look at the sneak peek undercover style videos indicates, as the name suggests, the use of a vortex to spin the disc as it fires, in theory increasing stability, accuracy and range without just adding 'power' that would make a blaster hurt, rendering it useless for all sort of legal reasons.

Nerf Proton - Nightfire equivalent?
As always, blaster design is looking top notch with some superb looking introductions to launch the range.


Video indications suggest that accuracy is improved but we're going to have to see for ourselves before we pass comment on that.

Nerf Praxis - Pump action with the new magazine system.
The blaster range comes with the introduction of a striking new colour range, which whilst we're not gonna wax lyrical about, we think will look better than the yellow offerings in the darkened gloom of a zombie infested corridor.

Nerf Nitron - Spec Ops all the way.

Nerf Vortex release date
The release date for the Vortex range is scheduled for 10th October 2011, so we've got a pretty fair wait till these blasters hit the stores. Once they do that we at Zombie Shop will be shooting ourselves in the face just for you, to confirm their Zombie LARP suitability.

Until then, be sure to stock up on Nerf blasters and make sure you're ready for the impending Zombie Apocalypse.

Rise of Nightmares: Live Action Trailer

We've recently seen a little zombie smashing game play footage from Sega's survival horror experience for Kinect Rise of Nightmares. The innovative game plays off the increasing popularity of twisted genius survival horror movies such as Hostel and Saw. But we're most excited about...the zombies.




We wouldn't be surprised if the release of this game results in an increase of spilled drinks and broken ornaments as players flee from their screens in terror in the middle of the night.

Clear a space and don't forget to tell someone where you are!

Zombie Bite Calculator - How Long Will You Last?

Getting bitten by a zombie can prove somewhat problematic.

Not only is there that niggling pain and the loss of blood but there's the issue of contracting whatever mutated pathogenic virus has caused the zombpocalypse and, once you can't hold out any longer, succumbing to the big dark and reanimating with the munchies and a penchant for human flesh.

So how long would you last once you've been bitten? The answer to this once unfathomable question is now within our grasp.


Visit oatmeal.com and find out how long you will last.


theoatmeal.com, the home of crazy comics quizzes and stories, has created this indispensable Zombie Bite Calculator so that not only can you know, on the button when you're gonna cop it, but your friends can safely know how long you'll be of use to them before they have to put one in your brain or send you off into the mix as fast moving bait before you become a threat to them.

So...if you get bitten by a zombie...how long will you last?

ZombieLARP: Evolution

In the calm before the storm in the run up to the next event, scheduled for September 3rd at the Friar's Walk Mall in Reading, here's a teaser of the chaos that ensued last time ZombieLARP held one of their high-octane Live Action Role Playing events.

Zombie LARP: Evolution

From the ZombieLARP website
Zombie LARP is a physical action game which recreates the thrills and atmosphere of classic zombie horror movies. The dead are returning to life and eating the flesh of the living. The only question is: what are you going to do about it?
(By the way, the word "LARP" stands for "Live Action Role-Play".)

Zombie LARP uses a large crowd of players as zombies who pursue a small team of humans through darkened hallways. When the humans are all dead - or have made it to safety - we swap the roles around, reset, and start again, so that everyone gets a chance to experience the terror from both sides.

The game is run by referees who herd the zombies and devise goals and challenges for the humans. But the outcome depends on the human players' daring, intelligence and survival skills. We've kept the rules to a minimum so that the game is as immersive as possible. Fighting is done using foam-rubber weapons, guns which fire foam darts, and (in the case of zombies) bare hands. This isn't the type of game which stops to check the rulebook: if you're surrounded by zombies, you have to fight or run for your life.

Zombie LARP: a mix of team sport, roleplaying game, improvised theatre, carnival fun house, tactical combat simulation, recurring nightmare, and historical re-enactment of events that will hopefully never happen. But if they do, you'll be ready.

Rise of Nightmares - Zombie Fight!!!

Punch, kick, it's all in the mind! Or...with your hands and feet in Rise of Nightmares, the Survival Horror melee-fest for Kinect from Sega.
Rise of Nightmares.
Check out this over the shoulder sneak peek from E3.


The Rise of Nightmares Stance
What at first seem slightly awkward controls soon become natural and, before you know it, you're sucked into a nightmare realist that will see you slashing, bashing, kicking and smashing your way through the hordes of beasties that await.

And, it's not just your hands and feet you get to use. Whilst it looks at first to be on rails, a subtle twist of the shoulders and the camera tilts, put one foot in front of the other and you stride forward, put your foot out more, you speed up. Not as refined, but this works more like a first person shooter.


Tooling up
The E3 demo allowed players access to a small sampling of the weapons available including: explosive vials, brass knuckles, tongs and a chainsaw.



We're certainly looking forward to seeing a little more in-depth game play from this truly unique offering. And to finding out if the opponents are pretty much mostly zombies, and seeing as most of the characters look like they've been pilfered from Sega's highly successful House of The Dead series, we're hopeful.

Cowboys & Zombies - UK DVD Release August 1st

Cowboys & Zombies - Refried Braaaiiiins!?
From the Press Release

UK release of COWBOYS & ZOMBIES announced:

2011 is a tough year to be a Cowboy – first facing Aliens in the Universal Pictures summer release, the gunslingers now also have to battle… zombies!

Rene Perez’s zombie western COWBOYS & ZOMBIES is being released on DVD in the UK on 1st August. The film has been described as “like Deadwood… with zombies”.

Set in 1849, it follows a bounty-hunter in the old west’s Jamestown, who gets more than he bargained for when he finds the town over-run by zombies - victims of a virus unleashed by a meteor found in the gold rush.

Cowboys and native Indians unite to fight the undead horde, as guns blaze and mutants growl in this showdown for survival in the weird wild west.

Director Rene Perez said: “We have a gun slinger bounty hunter and an Apache Warrior, and although they are afraid of the zombies, they fight back in a big way. Our story starts with a group of gold miners cracking open an ancient meteor, hoping to find emeralds but all they get were alien spores which mutated them into ravenous zombies. Our zombies/mutants are faster and stronger than humans. They just aren’t as smart”

Left Films is distributing the film in the UK, which is now available for pre-order on Play.com and Amazon UK. It’s being released in the USA July 26th under its original title ‘The Dead and the Damned’.





Credit goes to The Zed Word for picking up on this one.

Resident Evil - Operation Racoon City

Get ready to head back into Racoon City, but this time - you're doing it for 'The Man!'

We heard there might be zombies in it!
Check out this stunning trailer, revealed at E3, of the latest incarnation of the original zombie survival game from E3.


In Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, you play as Umbrella Security Service (USS) operatives or as members of a United States Special Operations task-force.

Producer Masachika Kawata said “We wanted to take the Resident Evil franchise in a new direction. It’s going to have a unique style of gameplay you haven’t seen in the series thus far. We have flipped the script on the playable characters, so this time you won’t be playing as the nice hero character trying to survive because now - you are the bad guy,”

Quarantine 2: Terminal

Fangoria got a first look at the poster for the crazy-making virus movie sequel - QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL.


The virus takes to the sky in QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL, the sequel that hits theaters next Friday, June 17th, from Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Head here to check out Fangoria's exclusive first peek at the poster!

Written and directed by John Pogue, QUARANTINE 2 picks up the same night as the horrors of the previous movie, as the rabies-like disease infects an airliner that has taken off from LAX. Instructed to land the plane at the nearest airport, the crew soon find themselves and their passengers trapped and falling victim to the sickness and the bloodthirsty rage it causes.

Please fasten your safety belts.

Dead Island Release Date - 9th September

Dead Island gets European release on September 9th

Imagery we have come to know so well.

Deep Silver has confirmed that zombie outing Dead Island will be released in Europe on September 9th.

It will arrive slightly earlier on September 6th in North America.

The game features a lot of melee combat.
The publisher has also announced a special pre-order edition of the game. The Special Edition will include the Bloodbath Arena DLC, which offers four new single and multiplayer challenges tasking players with surviving waves of zombie attacks.

Those who don't pre-order the game will have the option of buying the DLC.
Holiday booked for September?

Trailer: Humans Vs Zombies

Students on summer break are exposed to a deadly virus, a neuroinvasive organism that is spread rapidly through direct human contact. The infected are enslaved by the invading “swarm” intelligence and driven by an insatiable appetite to consume human flesh. Returning home, the students spread the infection to their fellow classmates and other unsuspecting townspeople. One by one, more students fall victim to the plague, triggering an epidemic that spawns a horde of ravenous zombies.

Humans Vs Zombies - not a Nerf blaster in sight!


The zombie horde grows and spreads quickly. Amidst the chaos a campus security guard, obsessed with conspiracy theories, leads a group of students to safety as they and a small band of uninfected townspeople set out to find other human survivors in an attempt to discover the source of the “zombie” virus and save the world.


Humas Vs Zombies stars: Madison Burge, Melissa CarnellBrian T. Jaynes, Frederic Doss, Chip Joslin, Jonah Priour, Jesse Ferraro, Rheagan Wallace, Christine Quinn, and is directed by Brian T. Jaynes.

Zombies Invade Norwich Conneticut as Cameras roll for 'Remains'

John Shishmanian / Norwich Bulletin.com
Monday was the first day of shooting by Synthetic Cinema International of its zombie film, “Remains.”

Several dozen onlookers crowded sidewalks as set designers and technicians prepped the area for filming.

Would-be zombies from Norwich, Plainfield and New London, among others, came to town for Monday’s shooting of the film.

The movie is set in Reno, Nev., where a blackjack dealer and a dancer find themselves the lone survivors of a bizarre accident that has reduced most of the world’s population to zombies.

“We’ll use some movie tricks to make Norwich look just like Reno,” Gernhard said during a March visit to the city to scout locations.

Andrew Gernhard, founder of Synthetic Cinema International, said “Remains” is a low-budget film and a joint production between Synthetic Cinema International and the Chiller Network. The movie will have a theatrical release before going to cable.

Gernhard, also the producer for the film, is a native of Norwich, and said earlier this year he was looking forward to be able to do business in the city.

The film company will be filming in the downtown area through June 25.

The Crewdson Shoot

Seattle has seens it's fair share of zombies, what with the walks and ZomBcon. But last night Zombies invaded again, this time at the Luna Park Cafe, as first year students from the commercial photography class at Seattle Central Community College took over the Cafe on Sunday night, and stayed on until the small hours this morning all for the sake of just one photograph.

Production still from the shoot.

The assignment given to the class was to create a single photograph in the style of art photographer Gregory Crewdson whose often surreal photograophs are elaborately staged depictions of American homes and neighborhoods.

His work, which can sell for over $100,000 per image, involves a large crew, and complex elements that are intricately staged and lit.

To emulate his style the class chose the cafe and the concept of a zombies attack in this year's attempt at 'The Crewdson Shoot', that all first year students undertake.

The survivors are holed up in a cafe and the zombies are trying to break in the front door.

Looks like a Class A 50's Z-Movie to us and we can't wait to see the results.

See the full story at West the Seattle Herald.

'RAMMBOCK' DVD

Sadly, most foreign language films don't tend to get the broad coverage we'd prefer in our now predominantly Showcase Theatre Nation, particularly foregin language horror. So, it's pretty exciting when little gems such as this get their DVD release.

Things don't look good.

RAMMBOCK was a german 2010 film from director Marvin Kren. The story follows Schnook (Michael Fuith) who heads to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment block to make amends and instead gets trapped inside by a 28 DAYS LATER-style viral outbreak. Cue running and screaming and some insanely tense set-pieces.

Sehr erschreckend

With comparisons to [REC] and The Horde abound and this stunning trailer Zombie Shop gives RAMMBOCK two thumbs up - well worth picking up if you missed it, after all, it doesn;t have 'zombie' or 'of the dead' in the title.



Sehr Gut und Fantastisch!

Join us on February 4th 2012 as we will give the father of the Zombie Genre GEORGE ROMERO, the birthday present he deserves!
On that Saturday at exactly 3:00 pm Central Time (US) we will attempt a world record number of people simultaneously watching Romero’s ground-breaking film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968).

How can YOU participate in giving “The King of the Zombie Genre” the largest display of gratitude from the fans that ap...
preciate his work so much?

*Anyone who owns a copy of the original Night of the Living Dead can watch it in whatever medium they prefer, DVD, VHS etc.



*If you don’t own a copy of the 1968 film, it is not a problem. Because it is under Public Domain, so it can be found at the link below in FULL-LENGTH, HIGH QUALITY and in ANY FORMAT!

We have contacted Guinness World Records, and upon confirmation of our record claim we will have everything we will need to give Romero THE BIGGEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!

With YOUR help we can get to 1,000,000 people ALL watching the film that started it all, made by the man we have grown to adore!


'They're coming to watch you Barbera.'

Anti-Zombie Fortress - Don't forget the noseplugs?

Stuck for ideas on where you might hole up when the Z-pocalypse goes down? Local Church or Shopping Mall just not cutting it?

The Daily What would appear to have found a solution.

Fukuoka Fortress - saviour or blatant horde magnet?
This abandoned coal mine shaft is in Fukuoka, Japan — so quite a way to travel once the Zulus come a chompin'.

We all know Zombies flock to survivors regardless of how safe they think they are, call it animal magnetist, preternatural senses or just plan bad luck. That being the case, we recoomend keeping the gates to the actual mine shaft firmly closed, otherwise Mr Zebedee is gonna be pouring down that hole like the sands of time.




Not sure I would want to spend the rest of my days at the top of a funnel of funk once the writhing little rotters start piling up - Oust just ain't gonna cut it.

At least there's some swings and slides nearby if you're stuck for things to do come the end of the world.

What is it with Zombie Games?

Who'd have thunk it? Mr Romero makes a cute little indie move about changing stereotypes, adds a little undead action and 40 years or so later we're all spending far too much time using up bandwidth on free Internet games.

Well worth checking out.

Zombies seem to be the perfect excuse for a free game. The formula is simple:

Zombies + weapons + smashing, bashing and blasting = Zombie Game!!

Dead Island Cover Art Revealed

The jury is out on the cover art for Techland's First Person Zombie-Thwacker due out later this year.

Not up to the rest of the marketing?

At least we know what we're looking for when we go shopping eh!
