But, as anyone who follows my reviews of “The Walking Dead” are quite aware of, I live and breathe zombies. I recently had the chance to see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies while on vacation with my family. Did the film live up to my expectations? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Less Lee Moore Reviews New Horror Film Jeruzalem

jeruzalem-crowd-shot

Jeruzalem, the first feature from brothers Doran and Yoav Paz, has a tantalizing premise. For one thing, it’s not a found footage movie, at least according to the pair of Israeli filmmakers. They have called Jeruzalem a “POV” film, which is quite accurate and could probably be applied to a few more recent horror films like Open Windows, iLived, and Unfriended.

I love zombies and because I do, I get to meet a lot of talented people who also share this love for the shuffling dead. I first took notice of Rob Sacchetto on Facebook after coming across a portrait of a female zombie that he posted. She was beautiful in all her rot and decay. Rob not only loves zombies, he is the first artist to offer custom zombie portraits since 2006. What would make a talented illustrator want to draw decaying slimy creatures? Why would person want to be drawn as a zombie? The only way to get to the bottom of this phenomenon was to talk to the artist. Read the rest of this entry

When Rick Grimes from the Robert Kirkman‘s comic book series and the AMC television series “The Walking Dead” awoke from his coma, the proverbial dog doo had already hit the fan and, for five seasons, we loyal fans watched as Rick, his family and friends struggled to survive walkers and nasty people. Now, with “Fear the Walking Dead,” we get to see how it began. If our government officials can’t even agree on how to handle a case of Ebola, how will they handle the apocalypse?

Prepping for Fear the Walking Dead

maxresdefault

Someone up in heaven loves me. They know I’m all about zombies, ghosts, and aliens, but mostly zombies. I’ve been writing the weekly recaps of “The Walking Dead” for Biff Bam Pop! for three seasons. I’m a member of the Zombie Squad and, not only wrote articles on how to make your home zombie proof here and here, but I can safely say that I’m Biff Bam Pop’s resident zombie expert. Am I excited about the new companion series, “Fear the Walking Dead,” created and written by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson that is due to premiere on August 23rd? What do you think?
