Doc of the Dead and other News from the Grave

 Youtube Direktdead, via Twitch

Alexandre O. Philippe („The People vs George Lucas, The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus) finanziert seine neue „Doc of the Dead“ über Kickstarter. Eine „definitive zombie culture documentary […] featuring Simon Pegg and George A. Romero“, noch dazu wollen sie Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, Max Brooks, Robert Kirkman und Tom Savini vor die Kamera holen, außerdem hängen Red Letter Media (das waren die mit den epischen, stundenlangen Videoreviews von den Star Wars-Prequels) da irgendwie mit drin. Definitives Must Watch:

Without a doubt, Zombie Culture has now reached a tipping point. It has literally clawed itself into our braaaaains (!), successfully infiltrated mainstream consciousness, and asserted itself as one of the most important, wildly entertaining, and participatory pop cultural trends of the new century. As a direct result of this unprecedented social explosion, the Zombie Apocalypse seems to be on everybody’s lips these days. Should we categorize it as fiction, dismiss it as far-fetched paranoia, or speculate about it as a plausible scenario..? We, at Exhibit A Pictures, believe there’s never been a better time to release an epic, comprehensive, and contemporary cinematic celebration of Zombie Culture. And a look at our previous films (trailers provided below) will tell you why we’re the right team to tackle this enormous task!

In other Zombie-News: Hier ein so mittelunterhaltsamer Clip von TED Education: Diagnosing a zombie von Tim Verstynen & Bradley Voytek, außerdem wollen sie George A. Romero einen Stern auf dem Hollywood Boulevard per Indiegogo crowdfunden, wogegen andere nicht zu Unrecht argumentieren, eine Statue in der Dawn-Mall in Pittsburg wäre hundertmal besser geeignet, weil der Mann mit Hollywood tatsächlich eher so gar nix am Hut hatte. Hach, Season of the living Dead. Gibt echt Schlimmeres.
