Zombies Done to Death? That’s the way I like it.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get sick of zombies, vampires, witches, and werewolves. To me, they’re like writing about love or doing a comedy. It’s good, clean (well, not really clean) fun. There is only one thing that will make me switch off a movie or close a book and that’s a pissweak storyline. So if you’re over zombies, stop now, turn around, and take a kick in the pants, but keep in mind you’ll be missing out on some cool stuff.
Dead Assets by Don Miskel
DEAD ASSETS is a horror by Don Miskel, and it’s not the first time this author has captured my attention. I read one of his collaborative, short stories in an anthology a while back. Is this a book of short stories?
Yes … wait, no!
It isn’t really. Not if you look closely. Dead Assets is a collection of recounts from people experiencing the beginning of a zombie apocolypse, cleverly woven together with news stories, and common threads. What makes it interesting are the variety of perspectives, my favourite being Part Three: Soliliqy, from the perspective of a doctor turning zombie. Yep. Cool.
You’ll likely have your own favourite amongst these treasures. This type of book works perfectly for a mamma on the go, like me, who can only read in short spurts at a time.
What I love most about Dead Assests is the grit. Miskel is not afraid to share the gory details of blood and entrails. Much like my next happy, fun-time, zombie suggestion…
Holy, good lord, thigh-slapping laugh-out loud, wrongness!
Wyrmwood, Road of the Dead
This movie is hilarious. It’s gross, gritty, disturbing, and so full of swearing it makes Chopper Reid sound like Mike Brady (rest both their souls). So if you’re all right with gore, guns, and mayhem, if you think Australians are hilarious (check all four) then give this awesome Indie film a chance. You won’t be sorry!
Barry is a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. His sister, Brooke, is kidnapped by a sinister team of gas-mask wearing soldiers & experimented on by a psychotic doctor. While Brooke plans her escape Barry goes out on the road to find her & teams up with Benny, a fellow survivor – together they must arm themselves and prepare to battle their way through hordes of flesh-eating monsters in a harsh Australian bushland.

Get your freakin’ zombie on!
