'A Cure for Dead' web series launches!

From director Wes Young, one of the recipients of 2009's Fresh Meat Newcomer Award at last year's Dead Letter Awards, has launched his new web series A Cure for Dead. From the website at http://www.acurefordead.com:

The Series

A Cure for Dead is a new zombie web-series from Wes Young. It’s True Blood meets Zombieland. With this show we are attempting something that has not been tried with the web-series format yet. We want to create a fun, exciting and sexy series that would be like a show seen on HBO or Showtime.

We intend to release two episodes a month with each episode being around five to eight minutes in length.


A ZOMBIE virus has spread across the world. A group of biomedical engineers has been working for the last year and a half to develop a cure that will stop the spread of this vicious disease.

Supplies were low and they became more desperate. Then one day they had it. A successful treatment of the virus led several test subjects to be completely cured.

Not having and abundant supply of resourses at their disposal in their remote lab, they decided to make the long journey to what has now become known as “The District of Nevada”. It’s a heavily fortified city just over the Nevada border. The District of Nevada has a much larger lab that is capable of mass producing the cure they have developed.

Just before the Bio-Engineers leave on the crusade to deliver their cure, one of their test subjects breaks loose in the lab and attacks the four scientists. Their supplies are destroyed and only one vile of the cure remains intact and only one man, Arlin Cann survives this attack.

He now has to take it upon himself to deliver this last vial of the cure and possibly save humanity.

His defense skills are minimal at best. He runs into a Trio of survivalists who pride themselves in their zombie killing skills. Cassie, Emma, and Tread are a rough and tumble team that has survived the beginnings of the zombie apocalypse by sticking together. At first they are reluctant to help Arlin because it goes against their instincts and puts them into excessive danger. But they realize this may be humanities last hope to recover from this vicious plague.

They join him on his long journey to help him deliver and protect the cure from zombies and many others who may want to get their hands on the Cure.

And here's the first episode!

Mail Order Zombie: Episode 159 - Zombie Honeymoon, See the Dead, The Infection

Download Mail Order Zombie #159 here!

Twas the Thursday before HorrorHound Weekend, and all through the . . . um . . . podcast . . . ? Whatever . . . This is Episode 159 of Mail Order Zombie, and this week, Brother D gets back to business and reviews the movies Zombie Honeymoon (dir. David Gebroe) and See the Dead (dir. Robert W. Filion). Need-a-Nickname Scott is on vacation this week, so Brother D also tackles the regular round-up of zombie news in the Zombie Beat, but before Scott took off, he sent in a review of the novel The Infection by Craig DiLouie. Miss Bren helps D tackle nearly a month's worth of emails and voicemails in the Feedback Discussion (the Discussion was kicked off with a call-in report from the recent Monster Mania Con, courtesy of Zombart!).

Rise & Walk to be released in Europe

Wild Wolf Publishing announced the April 2011 European release of Rise & Walk by Gregory Solis (ISBN: 978-1907954047). Rise & Walk is a high octane zombie thriller with forewords from best-selling horror authors, Remy Porter and David Moody; it has already been a huge hit in the US and now, after acquiring the European rights, Wild Wolf Publishing is taking it to the UK and European markets.

From the press release: "The walking dead descend upon a paintball competition in the mountains. Two brave young women join forces with two thrill seekers in a terror filled struggle against the undead. Low on ammunition and supplies, the survivors use anything at hand to fight off the flesh hungry horde. As the party makes their escape they soon realize that there is nowhere to run when the dead Rise and Walk ..."

Rise & Walk (ISBN: 978-1907954047) will be available online and in book shops, as well as through distribution channels and direct from the publisher.

“Fast-paced, bloody, engaging and exciting, Rise and Walk is a blast from beginning to end.” ~ David Moody, author of Autumn
“Zombie fans, you NEED to get this one!” ~ Remy Porter, author of Dead Beat
“Solis definitely has a knack for bringing the dead to life.” ~ TheZombieReview.com

Download Mail Order Zombie #158.5 here!

While the Mail Order Zombie crew recovers from last week's Dead Letter Awards, why don't you sit back and enjoy a chat with Zombie Number One? The movie River of Darkness is hitting DVD shelves at the end of March, and playing against type in the movie is Bill Hinzman, who joined Derek for a discussion about the movie as well as his role in zombiedom. After this interview, we go back in time to 2008 to join Jonathan Maberry, Dennis Tafoya, Edward Pettit and Tony Finan for a panel discussion about our favorite subject. (This panel was conducted when Maberry's Zombie CSU: The Forensics of the Living Dead was hitting shelves, and was recorded by The Matt Hatter.) And remember - we're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Question!
