zombies

by Terrance Mc Arthur


Angel is a zombie. You won’t see her moaning for brains, as long as she’s adequately supplied with freeze-dried brain chips and the fresh stuff she can grab at her morgue-assistant job, and she is the point-of-view character of Diana Rowland’s White Trash Zombie Unchained. She’s foul-mouthed, a former druggie, and recently reassembled after falling apart when the parasite that gives her zombie abilities was damaged by chemical abuse.

It is that time of year when ghosts, goblins, ghouls, vampires, and yes, even zombies begin showing up everywhere you look. The spooky Halloween decorations and candy have been popping up in stores since the end of summer. With Halloween just around the corner, many people are wondering what sort of safe and creepy fun can be found for the whole family to enjoy.

Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And gave her mother forty whacks,
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.

What if Lizzie did kill her father and stepmother…but it was self-defense…because they attacked her…because they were ZOMBIES?

Although he may only be 40 years old, 16 years as a police detective in Ostend, Belgium, have taken a toll on both Rafael Styx’s body and his life. Arthritis cripples his bones and fills every movement with pain, and on the Job he is known for accepting bribes and being unnecessarily brutal. Styx’s wife simmers unnoticed with anger due to his affairs and neglect, while his teenaged son rarely utters a few words that aren’t filled with hostility. Styx barely manages to tolerate his rookie partner, whose fashion sense and adherence to rules represents everything Styx loathes in the new generation of detectives.

I used to be terrified of zombies. If anything zombie-related came on to the screen I couldn’t look. But then I was on YouTube and saw that someone was playing a game called The Walking Dead. I was curious, so I clicked and I’ve been hooked ever since. I realized zombies weren’t scary. There was no reason to be scared of them, ‘cause a zombie apocalypse would never happen. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with zombie-related things and The Walking Dead game is at the top of my list.

With Halloween coming up fast this season, there’s no time like the present to celebrate one of the most-loved movie monsters in history: the zombie. Zombies have been around for almost a century in classic horror films, but only in recent years have they become a popular trend on TV shows and movies like The Walking Dead and World War Z. If you’re looking to revisit the classics this year, here are five zombie films that will creep you out in the best way.

What better way to celebrate Halloween than to interview the Valley’s queen of horror, The Homicidal Homemaker Kaci Hansen from Visalia! We chatted with her about her new TV show and more! Kaci is also the founder of the Central Valley Horror Club.

Three days before October’s Blood Moon lights up the night, zombies will be taking over Fresno’s Woodward Park for an entire day (Saturday, October 24, from 11 a.m.-8 p.m.) of good old-fashioned bloody mayhem. A portion of the proceeds from Candles & Wine Productions’ Zombie Survival Crawl will benefit SmileTrain, an organization dedicated to helping children with cleft lip and palate.

I love Halloween! I’m betting many of you do as well, so I compiled a list of several of the Halloween related events happening in the Valley this month. There are events for small children, all the way up to adults. I know I didn’t get anywhere near everything, but there’s a lot here to choose from!

It’s a little early for Halloween articles, but it’s never too early for Zombies. Recently I learned about an animated feature called The Grid: Zombie Outlet Maul, and we took a moment to chat with Linda Andersson, its writer/director/producer/voice actor and more.

I used to be terrified of zombies. I would avoid zombie movies and games at all cost. But then I played The Walking Dead video game and my mind was changed. I suddenly knew that zombie stuff, especially anything in The Walking Dead franchise, was amazing.

What’s a pretty Latina supposed to do when her skin turns gray and breaks open in gooey sores that don’t heal (I mean, she’s had breakouts before, but this is FIERCE!)? She can’t eat her favorite foods, and she has a wandering eye (Like, of course, she likes guys, but—REALLY—one eye keeps going off in other directions!)
