Odds N' Ends

A round up of zombie-related news hitting the web

Easter Sunday was not just for Church or chocolate eggs this year in Somerville, Mass. It was also time for the Zombie Outbreak 2009 parade which crawled from Davis Square to Harvard Square. The Boston Herlad notes that the organizer's Facebook page posted the following notice:“This walk has nothing to do with any kind of anti-Christian sentiments and is not intended to be offensive.” Comments left on the Boston Herald's website, however, seem to suggest not everyone was happy about the parade occurring on Easter.

Writing for the Telegraph, Tim Robey wonders why the undead are suddenly invading mainstream culture. He mentions both the surge in vampire fiction (such as the critically loved Let the Right One In) as well as zombie media: "Viva the undead revolution!"

  • The Silent Night, Zombie Night teaser trailer has been released. It will be interesting to see how this X-Mas zombie flick compares to Gargoyle Entertainment's upcoming 12/24
