The Future of Fear: Horror Movies In 50 years

Entertainment, Horror Movies

We love horror movies. We also love futurism and overwrought speculation. With transhumanism and the Singularity entering the mainstream–much to the chagrin of its esoteric handlers–we found ourselves trying to imagine what horror movies would be like in 50 years. By then technology will have evolved to near incomprehensible levels and the entertainment industry will […]

World War Z Review: Martial Law, UN Militants and Zombies!

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Zombies

We found ourselves pleasantly surprised–moderately shocked, actually–at the movie theater Friday evening: World War Z wasn’t a complete piece of shit. In fact, for a PG-13 rated Hollywood-commandeered adaptation of a violent zombie novel, it was an above average summer blockbuster and a possible honorable mention on our Best Zombie Movies of All Time list. […]

Movie Review: V/H/S 2 and the Horror Panopticon

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Zombies

We’re in the Golden Age of the found footage genre. In the empire of the panopticon, horror movies thrive off 24/7 street surveillance, surgical cameras, security cameras, microscopic cameras, smartphones, webcams, etc. We live in a hunted, stalked society, consumed and regurgitated like a freshly turned zombie’s black bile. Cameras are everywhere–watching our carefully scripted […]

The 40 Best Zombie Movies Ever Made: Part Two

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists, Zombies

It’s hard to explain why we love zombie movies so much. It’s more than the fear or the gore. It’s more than the camp or the B-movie nostalgia. There’s just something fundamentally exciting, almost poetic, about the idea of the undead chasing down living humans and eating them alive. And more importantly, there’s something both […]

Does the Bible Predict the Zombie Apocalypse?

Entertainment, Zombies

“WHEN THERE’S NO MORE ROOM IN HELL, THE DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH.” That was the tagline from Giorgio Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. It speaks of a battered and bleak vision of humanity. The quote is derived from a Haitian voodoo religion called Santeria. Practitioners of Voodoo have long believed that sorcerers are responsible […]

Mayan Calendar Foresaw Zombie Uprising!

Entertainment, Unexplained, Zombies

Ever since we read that Homeland Security has a real-life zombie uprising prevention department we’ve been thinking hard about the reality of zombies. That is, the concept that some of kind of government or CIA experiment gone wrong could actually infect the general population with a maddening virus. It’s really not as unlikely as you […]
