Download Mail Order Zombie #166 here!

Yes, it IS possible to have a post-apocalypse without zombies, and this is the first monthly episode of MOZ's Post-Apocalyptic Summer. Brother D reviews the movie Steel Dawn (dir. Lance Hool) and he's joined by Miss Bren to talk about the movies The War Game (dir. Peter Watkins) and Panic in Year Zero! (dir. Ray Milland). We have a question for the PAQ, or Post-Apocalyptic Quiz, post-apocalyptic news, post-apocalyptic movie trailers . . . and the Feedback Discussion (and even the briefest of mentions of post-apocalyptic porn).

'Phase 7' coming to AMC Theatres

The Argentine apocalyptic horror film Phase 7 will hit theaters on July 13th for a special engagement! PHASE 7 premiered at SXSW and will now join the “Night Terrors” film series where The Collective, AMC Theatres and Bloody-Disgusting.com have teamed up to distribute the best new horror and thriller titles from the festival and international markets to AMC theatres across America.

In Phase 7, Coco (Daniel Hendler, Lost Embrace) has just moved to a new apartment with his wife Pipi (Jazmin Stuart, The Paranoids), who’s seven months pregnant. At first, they don’t seem to notice the growing chaos around them, but when authorities quarantine their building after a deadly pandemic breaks out, Coco joins forces with his off-kilter, but well-prepared and stocked next-door neighbor Horacio to defend his refrigerator and keep Pipi safe. Meanwhile, outside the building, Buenos Aires—and the world as the apartment denizens know it, is disappearing. The world is ending; got ammo? Phase 7 is written and directed by Nicol├ís Goldbart, produced by Sebastian Aloi and executive produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity)

Brother D and Miss Bren help out their friends over at Disney, Indiana with a review of the videogame Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. (Hey, there are zombies in it . . . technically!)

From the shownotes of Disney, Indiana #76:

In today’s episode, Tracey and Scott reach the end of their Disney pirate adventure by looking at the 2011 release Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. They discuss how the film came together, who came back and who didn’t, and share their thoughts on the film.

They also spend a little more time in Belle’s Books and review The Art of On Stranger Tides from 2001 and the book the film was loosely based upon, 1987’s On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers.

After a stop into Disney, Indiana’s music store – Silly Symphony Shoppe – our hosts talk about the music of Pirates of the Caribbean and share some of their favorite songs.

Our Hosts then get help from some town residents who share their thoughts on the new Pirates of the Caribbean Lego Video game. Scott and Tracey wrap up the episode by welcoming a new resident to town.

Welcome to Disney, Indiana.
