Afterlife Zombies

Will We Ever See Real Zombies?

While many of us will unlikely ever see a real zombie in our regular lives, we can continue to enjoy them in our favorite shows and movies like The Walking Dead and Dawn of the Dead. However, the possibility to see real zombies might be around the corner during the Afterlife.

Anything is Possible During the Afterlife

Nobody knows what the Afterlife is like, leaving our imaginations to create a new world. Like our imagination, anything is possible in this world. We could all be in a galaxy far far away with lightsabers, or facing hordes of the undead.

The new novel Battle for the Afterlife Saga, Blue Courage

by CJ Davis explores these possibilites. In his book, which I have read an advanced copy of, there are zombies called Lost Souls. They are every bit as terrifying as the zombies in today’s pop culture.

The basic principle around the flesh eating ghouls, is that they are people in the Afterlife, that lost their motivation to grow their souls. Overtime people that do not pursue personal growth through hobbies, interests, work and other passions eventually become Lost Souls. Eternity is a long time, after all. Boredom can drive a person insane!

His book is very good, and I highly recommend it. It’s filled with characters I cared about, and also had plenty of action and adventure.

CJ Davis’s novel is coming out in the fall 2013.

Battle for the Afterlife Saga, Blue Courage - Book Cover

900 Miles, a new zombie book written by S. Johnathan Davis, is now available on Amazon.  I’ve read an early draft of this novel, and can attest that it’s pretty amazing!  I can’t wait to read the final!

I would check it out on Amazon by clicking here

This video production company, EventStreams, pulled together a pretty awesome zombie spoof about producing videos in a post-apocalyptic world!  Got to love the humor of it.  Very funny, definitely worth a watch….Enjoy!

I finally broke down, and picked up More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead.  As the definitive documentary for the Return of the Living Dead franchise, I was eagerly awaiting its’ arrival.  Because I was one of a handful of people who bought it on their website by a certain date, they actually sent me a small poster tucked in the sleeve – which I thought was kind of cool.

The DVD documentary itself was around 2 hours (i think 120 min on the dot)….. However, there is actually another 2 full hours of bonus materials (which I’ll get into shortly).

The feature documentary focuses soley on Return of the Living Dead (part 1).  As a huge fan of the original move, it was really cool to see the full cast come back and talk about how they got involved, and their experiences during the shooting of the film.  The documentary also goes into the relationship and lawsuit that came out of Night of the Living Dead and George Romero.

One of the nice surprises of the DVD was “Skuz” narrating it.  For those who don’t know, the character Skuz, played by Brian Peck, was the only person who was involved in some way, shape or form in each movie in the series.  His narration was fun, and it’s clear that he really loved his experiences with the franchise.

For those who love Return of the Living Dead, you’re sure to love the documentary.  I tried to get one of my friends to watch it with me, who had never seen Return of the Living Dead, and he told me that it was kind of boring for him.

The special features have all kinds of stuff, including mini-documetaries for the sequels to the movies. The one about Return of the Living Dead 2 was especially interesting, revealing that many of the returning cast members were just doing so that they could work together again (instead of being fully behind the movie, script or director).

All in all, I loved the DVD.  I would highly recommend for the ROTLD fan!

Probably NSFW. The world may be running out of Zombie ideas

Looks like a new independant zombie book is in the works. There are a ton of these floating around. However, I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first 3 chapters of this one – which S. Johnathan Davis, the author, sent to me direct.

It starts out in NY just as the zombie apocalypse begins. The main Character, John, is and his new-found buddy Kyle have to escape the city to make it down 900 miles to Atlanta to get to Johns wife. I get the feeling that it’s going to be a long journey. There are elements from all sorts of zombie stories embedded. The way Davis described it to me, he’s writing the zombie story for the zombie genre “fan boy” – ie, the story that he would want to read.

Davis will be posting updates on the site. Evidently, he’s still writing it.

There is something about it that stands out. The writing style is narrative, and so far the story is really good. I would recommend heading over to www.zombiebook.net to sign up for the alerts for when it’s ready and published on the site for free.

It seems like there was a series of bad news stories coming out about The Walking Dead Season 2 a while back. Between Frank Darabont dropping out (or rather being fired), and the challenges we were all hearing about related to budget, etc. – it seemed like this season was plagued with difficulties.

However, I’m starting to see some cool news released. First, the Showrunner, Glen Mazzara, has given some hints to the general public about what the season will be about (you can see the full interview here).

Mazzara had this to say:

“In the graphic novel the story that takes place on Hershel’s farm is really only a few issues,” said Mazzara. “We’ve been able to mine that for many episodes, and we’re very excited about the depth to which we’re able to push the characters, the different dynamics that we’re able to explore. Our approach to our group of survivors when they reach Hershel’s farm is that they are a plague unto themselves. Nothing goes right for Hershel once Rick and his band show up. They make the zombie apocalypse look like kids in a candy story. What’s interesting is that if this was a show solely about Hershel, Rick and his band would really be the antagonists. And that’s been really surprising because every action that Rick and his band take is completely logical, but you’ll certainly sympathize with Hershel.”

My commentary on this is that Hershel’s farm was the platform by which many of the characters were introduced into the story.  It was kind of a pitstop along the road, as the group moved onto bigger and better things.  However, in season one of WD they really didn’t follow the plot too closely, and made a point to expand on certain plot point – which turned out great.  I’m really kind of excited to see where they take this – versus already knowing.

Another piece of info that is discussed during the interview is “the Governor.  When asked about his favorite part of the story that he’s looking forward to, Mazzara simply says:

“I am dying to meet the Governor.”

For those who don’t know, the Governor (without giving any spoilers away) turns out to be a huge character in the story and a game changer for the direction of the novel.

Third piece of good news is that the opening episode, set for October 16th, is going to be a full 90 Min. episode!   Which is always an awesome way to kick off a season.

world war z movie

World War Z, the epic Zombie novel by writer Max Brooks, has been having some financing problems.  Evidently Paramount Pictures has been a little risk adverse noting that they have been looking for business partners to help fund the now 125m + budget of the film.

According to Deadline, coming to the rescue is Larry Ellison (the Leader of Oracle) to help co-finance the project.  Nothing is final at this point, but evidently, the talks are “hot and heavy” with production beginning in June.  Ellison also helped to finance some other projects including Iron Man 2.  Ellison is known for a bit of grand-standing (which is clear based on the SAP TomorrowNow/Oracle trial late last year – which I won’t waste anymore type space on).  If he funds the project, I’ll make a bet with anyone that we’ll see him in a cameo of the movie (just like in Iron Man 2 – where he plays himself).

No doubt this pushes off the rumored 2012 delivery date of the film.

With star power including Brad Pitt and director Marc Forester, my feel is that we’ll see a great Zombie Movie get made….It’s just a matter of when and who steps to the table to help finally finance it.

Yes, you read it correctly, we at ZombieChatter.com have decided to give our visitors one more reason to waste their day thinking about zombies…..  We’ve added a Zombie Flash Arcade Game section to the site.  These games are free to play, and bring you all the best Zombie Games on the web.  We will cycle through games every once-in-a-while – keeping the best ones and letting the un-popular ones “die” off, and then adding new ones in their place.

Starting off this months premeir game section are the following games:

  • Impale: Play this puzzle game by throwing zombie bodies at a series of spikes and traps, completing each challenging level.

  • Blood Run: While the graphics are nothing special, I challenge you to not become addicted to this little game where the point is to turn as many of the living into zombies as possible…
  • Army of Darkness:  Nothing to do with the movie…however, this little game is like 1942 with zombies.  You’re a helicopter pilot flying above an “amy of darkness” trying to kill as many zombies and monsters as possible.  Has over 25 levels of zombie killing fun!

Play them all, and be sure to leave some feedback in the comments section of each game page.  If you love it, we’ll keep it….if you don’t we’ll replace them with better ones.

I suppose its better than getting eaten alive by a hoard.
