They’re the type of person you’d bump into in the street and all they want to talk about is your brain. A subject and horror genre that has always fascinated me. Most people instantly shy away from the subject of the undead – but the better films and books usually focus on the collapse, or rebuilding, of society. The zombies simple bring about the reason for the author or director to focus the camera back on us; our failings. Usually that is more daunting that the simple undead.

Halloween Special. Jesus. A zombie right?

by Paul Joyce

Following a conversation on Facebook today (Halloween), I thought I’d write a quick article on two of the main things in my life (except coffee), Jesus and zombies. I became a fan of zombie films many years ago, while a Christian only about 4 years back. I know a bit about both but would definitely […]

Zombie Survival: Pre-Outbreak Planning

by Paul Joyce

Week 2 of this zombie survival series focuses on what things you should be doing before an outbreak that can significantly improve your odds of riding out the wave of death. Last week we covered the zombies themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, their resources and the virus (briefly). If you haven’t read it yet I […]

Zombie Survival: Know thy Zombie

by Paul Joyce

So here we our, sitting awaiting our brief zombie education. Ready to absorb a few life-saving nuggets of zombie knowledge. However before we can get into the juicy areas of picking weapons, barricading windows and disappearing down into our private bunkers that I’m sure we’ve all got under construction; we first need to discuss our […]

New Series – Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse

by Paul Joyce

故曰:知彼知己,百戰不殆; 不知彼而知己,一勝一負; 不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆 So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss. If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself. Any […]

What Do Zombies Drink? My New Zombie Cola!

by Paul Joyce

Remember; a hydrated zombie is a happy zombie. Just thought I’d follow a few online tutorials in Blender and ended up with this little beauty. Dead proud of it… dead proud… get it…. oh well. Followed Andrew Price’s tutorial on modelling and lighting this subject, however all modelling and textures are pure, that is, made […]

Checklist: Is the person next to me a zombie?

by Paul Joyce

This is a little tongue-in-cheek prologue article for my new Zombie Survival series starting soon 🙂 Now if Hollywood has taught us anything, its some basic knowledge about surviving those pesky zombies. As Hollywood likes to assume everyone’s dumb they make everything in films really quite obvious, but real life isn’t like that. So how’d […]

The Walking Dead: TS-19 (#1.6)

by Paul Joyce

Great season finale to The Walking Dead. The survivors realise that the mauling hoards of undead are no longer their only source of danger. Hope can be taken as quickly as it was given

The Walking Dead: Wildfire (#1.5)

by Paul Joyce

Wildfire, a brilliant penultimate episode to The Walking Dead. The survivors leave camp to find the CCC but we also find that someone was actually bitten (I had a feeling someone would have). With some people still fired up from the night fighting, Jim’s life is already in the balance without even considering the infection killing him.

The Walking Dead: Vatos (#1.4)

by Paul Joyce

Best action and suspense filled episode yet from The Walking Dead. Rick and the team in Atlanta follow the blood trail of Merle in an attempt to find him before he dies of blood loss. We see that Merle’s as tough as he appears, cauterising his own arm stump to stop the majority of the bleeding.
