George A. Romero, director of the legendary Night of the Living Dead, the equally legendary Dawn of the Dead, the not legendary but still good Day of the Dead, and countless other zombie entertainment, is trying something different. Very different. So different it's a movie where zombies race cars to entertain rich people.

Video: It Stains the Sands Red is a zombie movie that seems to borrow a bit from It Follows — it's about a woman who can't shake the plodding pursuit of the undead new man in her life. But it's also set in the Nevada desert, lending a flashy danger to that region not seen since Nomi Malone hitchhiked into Vegas in Showgirls.
Last year, we blasted zombies to bits in a Wild West themed outbreak.
This time around, it's the modern day, and the government's desperate attempt to contain the rapidly spreading ZTX virus means the Ministry for Disease Control will be setting up quarantine zones in both Melbourne and Sydney.
Here's when Zedtown: State Of Emergency will run, and when you can buy tickets...
The world of The Walking Dead is full of dangers. There are zombies, of course, who desperately want to eat your flesh. There are bad humans like the Saviors and the Wolves, who kill the living with even more relish than the undead. But there's only one thing that, if you ever chance to see it, you need to start running and never stop: Rockmelons.
After two full weeks of narrative progression, I suppose The Walking Dead couldn't help itself. Huffing and puffing, it stopped its lumbering but steady jog to take five; catch its breath; and show us what's happening with Negan, his new captive Eugene and the rest of the Saviors' compound. Turns out what's hell for Rick and the others may be paradise for Eugene and his mullet.
I know, it's a bold proclamation, especially after the non-events of the first half of season seven. But the mid-season premiere, "Rock on the Road", contained pretty much everything those episodes lacked — the whole group (mostly) being together; significant forward progress in the story; and a ridiculous, hyperviolent zombie massacre — and I suspect things are only going to get better from here.
The Girl With All The Gifts is a critically acclaimed 2014 novel, turned into a celebrated movie, which hits Australian theatres some time this year. It tells a new type of zombie story, about kids, compassion, disease and acceptance. Author M.R. Carey has written a sequel, and we are very excited to bring you the first except from it.
Back in 1998, Capcom hired George A. Romero to direct a Japanese commercial for Resident Evil 2. The results were so impressive that Sony wanted to hire the zombie-movie pioneer to direct a big-screen adaptation of the hit video game. A logical pairing, yeah? Well, it didn't quite work out that way.
If you've been as bored watching The Walking Dead twiddle its decomposing thumbs this season as I've been, then the mid-season finale was probably equally satisfying to you. It was a pretty low-key episode — with a few violent exceptions — but one that finally got Rick out of his funk and put Alexandria and the other groups on the path to war with Negan and the Saviors.
If you're invested in a TV series, it can be tough watching the protagonist making a decision you know to be dumb. If three protagonists all make a dumb decision — the same dumb decision — it can be agonising. The latest episode of The Walking Dead features three of our "heroes" all enacting doomed, stupid plans. And despite it being yet another needlessly 90-minute episode, only one of them even got close enough to actually fail.
