IT'S A DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD WORLD


Unless you're one of them yourself, you'll know that zombies are the monster du jour these days. Vampires are holding their own, but the flesh-eatin', knuckle draggin' reanimated are ruling Monsterville.

Zombies have always been a notable sub-genre of the horror film, mostly because of Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and DAWN OF THE DEAD. Lugosi's WHITE ZOMBIE and Lewton's I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (great title!) were earlier offerings in the cycle.

Today, Zombie Walks, comic books, movies, and other pop culture outlets and venues are catering to the shambling ones. SFX, one of those A4-sized 'zines from across the pond, is releasing their latest special collection issue, ZOMBIES THE ULTIMATE GUIDE. It's a zombie-fest that's quite a sight for sore ... er, dead eyes.
