Where’s the Fear?

Is it just me, or is anybody else struggling to get into the Walking Dead spinoff, ‘Fear the Walking Dead’? I watched the first season and thought that it had some potential. I liked the way that it covered the gradual decline of human civilisation, although it was a little too much like we were viewing this global disaster from a goldfish bowl. But still, it was better than the viewer being thrown into the thick of it, without experiencing Continue Reading...

GOODNIGHT GEORGE

This may be a little on the late side, but I have been indisposed with other issues lately. However, I could not go through the rest of my life without having said goodbye to the Godfather of the modern zombie genre. George A. Romero was the pioneer of the flesh-eating ghoul movies. He re-energised a movie monster who, until Night of the Living Dead, was nothing more than a mindless slave, carrying out the biddings of its evil master. Zombies Continue Reading...

Call me Hannibal

JEBUS IS A ZOMBIE

Today we celebrate the most important day in the Christian calendar; the day that Jesus became one of the undead.

The Bible is filled with references to the dead rising, and even its lead character ends Continue Reading...

THE WALKING DEAD BARBARIANISM!

Who remembers my previous rant about the sexual frustrations I was experiencing in regards to Daryl and Carol (up a tree…K-I-S-S-I-N-G) not getting it on when both of them clearly want, neeeed to? Well, you may also remember that I compared the people living in a post-apocalyptic world to the Barbarians who sacked Rome; fighting and fucking on a scale that could only be matched by the average Saturday night at the Trafalgar Inn in Aldershot during the days when it was home to The Parachute Regiment (Airborne!). Well, last Continue Reading...
