“It’s not whether he can operate the cutters, it’s that he is trying at all. It’s like he’s remembering a lost skill or trying to attain a new one.” It’s finally happened; zombies are showing signs of adapting to and possibly learning from their environment! If you’re a hardcore zombie fan like me, you’ve seen the shuffling zombies, the balls-out running zombies, hell you’ve even seen zombies herd, but this is the first time I’ve been introduced to zombies that adapt to their surroundings. Not only do Tufo’s zombies attempt the use of tools but they also appear to make group decisions about…well, you’ll just have to read his book yourself. Need more reasons to pick up Zombie Fallout (ZF)? Please read on…

It’s human nature to root for the underdog, especially if he is bad ass marine named Michael Talbot. Given Tufo’s marine experience, readers get the extra benefit of his first hand survival instincts, weapons experience, and fighting techniques interwoven between the pages of his first zombie thriller in the series. Tufo successfully blended his real life marine experience with his account of the end of days.  And since most horror fans like a good story that COULD actually take place, making the story as true to life as possible is imperative.  Given all the rumors surrounding vaccines and CDC trials, people are at risk, every day, to suffer from a far reaching, horrible catastrophe that threatens the human race as a result of scientists attempting to save it. So who better to lead the human race against the zombies then an ex-marine, his brave wife and their sons, who just so happened to be raised to not only know how to respect guns but who also happen to be pretty damn good operators? Together, with their surviving neighbors, they work to protect their ‘gated community’, gather supplies and weapons, and formulate a plan to survive the Zombie Fallout.

Tufo has the gift of making the readers not only clearly envision each character and what makes them tick, but he also makes sure we really care about them as if they were really OUR friends and family. The reader feels a part of the story, grieving the loss of Talbot’s loved ones, chests tightening with the panic of being completely surrounded by zombies. Tufo’s ability to make readers smell the undead, visualize their various stages of decomposition, and instill fear in his new found followers is a gift. I highly recommend this book, and cannot wait to dive head first into the Zombie Fallout series. I dare you to only read one chapter a day; I found it impossible to put this book down!!!

DVD bonus clip from THE WALKING DEAD: Season 2 -- "The Ink Is Alive"

The series Variety called "creepy from the first frame" gets a release on Blu-ray™ and DVD that will make the dead rise! Anchor Bay Entertainment proudly releases the AMC original series THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON on August 28th on Blu-ray and DVD. A truly unique and very limited edition zombie head case created and designed by McFarlane Toys will also be available as Blu-ray™ only. The 4-Disc sets will contain all 13 episodes of the second season and will be loaded with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes and audio commentaries.
THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is the much anticipated next chapter to the acclaimed post zombie apocalypse series. When we last left the "The Walking Dead," the characters were in the midst of a high-intensity struggle to survive, fleeing the CDC as it burst into flames. In Season 2, they are still fighting zombies--and each other-- facing more threats and obstacles than ever before.

Based on the hugely successful and popular comic books written by Robert Kirkman, AMC's "The Walking Dead" captures the ongoing human drama after a zombie apocalypse. The series follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home. However, instead of the zombies, it's the living who still remain that may be the biggest threat. 



Image Entertainment presents the chilling and disturbing LOVELY MOLLY, which is arriving on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital Download on August 28th. Fresh from its critically acclaimed national theatrical engagements, LOVELY MOLLY is from the Executive Producer of the Lord of the Rings and marks the long overdue return to first-person horror from Eduardo Sánchez, the co-director of the revolutionary horror film The Blair Witch Project. 

When newlywed Molly Reynolds (Gretchen Lodge) moves back into her long-abandoned childhood home, she begins to experience unnerving and impossible things. What starts as a simple story about things that go bump in the night escalates into a battle for dominion over Molly's spirit, as she is beset by a cunning, malevolent force bent on wreaking havoc and terror on Molly and her family. Richly exploring the parallels between psychosis, addiction, and demonic possession to chilling effect, LOVELY MOLLY shows us what really happens before the exorcist arrives.



On August 28th, Anchor Bay Entertainment will release on Blu-ray™ and DVD the movie JERSEY SHORE SHARK ATTACK. This genre-busting film, which aired as a Syfy Saturday Original Movie on June 9, follows a crew of Jerseyites who band together against killer sharks that threaten to spoil their summer fun by eating them alive. An entertaining and outrageous action-thriller, JERSEY SHORE SHARK ATTACK features a talented cast including Jeremy Luke, Melissa Molinaro ("Making the Band 3"), Paul Sorvino (GoodFellas, Kill the Irishman), Jack Scalia ("All My Children"), Joey Fatone (N-Sync, "Dancing with the Stars"), Vinny Guadagnino (MTV's "The Jersey Shore"), William Atherton (The Last Samurai, Die Hard) and Tony Sirico ("The Sopranos").

With summer in full swing and a record-breaking Fourth of July crowd soaking up the boardwalk sun, Seaside Heights is the place to be in New Jersey! But when an illegal coastal drilling operation inadvertently unleashes a horde of man-eating albino bull sharks, the city is hurled into a deadly chaos. Can a local Jersey crew band together to fend off the bloodthirsty, ravenous sharks before the whole town is consumed...or will these "Shore" hotties sleep with the fishes?

The movie industry is switching to movies run on digital projectors. 2012 may be the last year the Midway Drive-In will receive 35mm prints of first run films. This conversion is required for all Drive-Ins and theaters if they want to continue to show first run movies. These digital projectors are VERY expensive.  To stay open, the Midway will need to buy a digital projector.

S.A. HORRORFEST's new BLOODY PARCHMENT Short Story Anthology!

With the next Bloody Parchment live fiction reading event again set to kick off the 8th annual South African HORRORFEST-ivities in the last week of October, here's some more good news:
eKhaya, the digital imprint of Random House Struik, is delighted to announce the publication of Bloody Parchment: Hidden Things, Lost and Other Stories. 

Bloody Parchment was created by Flamedrop Productions as part of its Shadow Realm horror web portal to represent the genre in print.  Several years ago it expanded to morph into a physical entity and become the literary component of the annual South African HorrorFest, created by Paul Blom & Sonja Ruppersberg (held in Cape Town, South Africa, since 2005 over Halloween season). 
The Bloody Parchment short story competition was established in 2010. Edited by prolific Cape Town writer and editor Nerine Dorman, this Bloody Parchment collection of the stories from the 2011 short story submissions, include Brett Bruton, Jenny Robson, Mico Pisanti, Lee Mather, Stacey Larner, Toby Bennett, SL Schmitz, Benjamin Knox, Austin Malone and Joan De La Haye. The authors of the collection represent a fine international mix of writers from South Africa, the United States, the United Kingdom, Botswana and Australia.
With the success of films like District 9 and Lauren Beukes’s novel Zoo City, the burgeoning South African genre scene is coming to hungry international attention. eKhaya believes that the Bloody Parchment short story competition is the ideal hothouse to nurture new international genre voices and to encourage cross-pollination between emerging South African and overseas talent, and ultimately develop and encourage indigenous horror stories that appeal to a broad international market.
Bloody Parchment is the sort of cutting-edge book eKhaya is looking to publish in its savvy, electronic format and we look forward to a productive association with the South African HorrorFest.
Bloody Parchment is now available at a recommended retail price of just R70 (around $6). It will be available as a PDF and ePUB from South African online retailers and, and from internationally.

If you'd like a review copy of this second Bloody Parchment anthology, please send us info on your publication.
