Teaser Trailer for A.D. – Animated Zombie Movie

Saturday, February 6, 2010

Stumbled on this yesterday at BoingBoing.    I’m not sure if I’ve ever actually seen an animated/cg zombie movie.   There was the Resident Evil CG movie I guess, but I wasn’t too impressed with it really.  To me, it seems like this movie will have a better feel and style to it.   I’d even settle for Valve making a full movie out of the Left4Dead intro scene.   Check it out:

I love the style this movie looks like it would have.  They just need to find a studio!   You can read all the details in the original interview here[zombieinfo.com]

Possible Zombie Outbreak in New Orleans?

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Zombie Strippers

Anyone see this in the news?     This guy in New Orleans comes up to a guy in his yard gardening, and starts yelling in Spanish.    He ends up biting the guy’s arm and eating the flesh in front of him while the neighbor dresses the bite wound.

It sounds like he did this all pretty calmly before wandering to a parking lot a few blocks down, and he was even treated for a finger injury at the hospital earlier in the day.

Sound like the beginning of a zombie outbreak to anyone?    It’s most likely not anything to worry about, but hey.   Always be prepared, right?     Start stocking up!

Here’s the full story:

A Metairie resident is recovering after a stranger bit a chunk of flesh out of his arm, and swallowed it, Saturday afternoon.

Joseph Lancellotti, 67, told authorities he did not know the suspect, later identified as Mario Vargas, 48, or why he was attacked in his front yard.

Lancellotti was gardening at his home in the 4400 block of Kawanee Avenue about 2 p.m. when he noticed a man walking toward his house, shouting angrily, the report said. Lancellotti said he couldn’t understand the man because he was yelling in Spanish. But when the man got within two feet, he slugged Lancellotti in the head, the report said.

Lancellotti said he tried to defend himself with a garden rake. As the men struggled over the rake, the stranger bent over and bit Lancellotti on his right forearm, the report said. Lancellotti’s flesh ripped away as he fell to the ground. The man then got on top of Lancellotti and began choking him, the report said.

It was then that neighbor Chantal Lorio, a podiatrist and director of the Wound Center at East Jefferson General Hospital, came out to check on Lancellotti. Lorio said Monday that she first thought Lancellotti was having a heart attack and the other man was trying to help him.

The stranger was still gripping Lancellotti as Lorio noticed her neighbor was lying in a pool of blood. She didn’t learn what happened until she began dressing the wound — with the stranger still clutching her neighbor’s shirt.

“He said, ‘He bit my arm, chewed the flesh and swallowed it in front of me,’ ” Lorio recalled. She said the bite measured almost 3 by 1 1/2 inches, and was less than 1/4-inch deep.

The pair tried to calm the stranger, who never made any attempt to run away. He eventually let go of Lancellotti and walked two blocks to a parking lot, where he hovered near an empty police car, the report said. The suspect was still standing there when deputies arrived and took him into custody.

Vargas, of 724 Camp St., New Orleans, was booked with second-degree battery. He was being held Monday at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna in lieu of $25,000 bail.

Lancellotti’s wife, Bonnie, 60, said Monday that her husband was recovering from the bite, physically and mentally. She said his sense of safety in his neighborhood has been shaken.

With all the bacteria involved, Lorio said a bite from a human is worse than an animal bite.

Bonnie Lancellotti also has concerns about the suspect, who apparently had been treated at East Jefferson General Hospital earlier in the day for a finger injury. Vargas was released 45 minutes before the attack, according to the incident report.

Bonnie Lancellotti wondered whether hospital staff noticed anything amiss while treating Vargas. “This person’s clearly lost his sense,” she said. “I mean, what else can you say, eating people’s skin?”

Keith Darcey, spokesman for the hospital, said, “We cannot comment on any individual patient because of privacy laws. But as a matter of general hospital policy, the emergency department has behavioral health nurses available to help diagnose patients who might require mental health assistance.”

We can’t be having a zombie outbreak already.   We don’t even have ZIRP online yet =[

George Romero’s Resident Evil Movie Script

Tuesday, January 8, 2008

george_romeroGeorge Romero, the guy behind most of the great Zombie movies, originally wrote a script for the movie portrayal of Resident Evil.

Night of the Living Dead

Dawn of the Dead

Day of the Dead

Land of the Dead

Originally, Romero was set to write the theatrical version of Resident Evil, but there were conflicts of interest with the director.


…JILL, heavily ARMED, in UNIFORM, wearing a beret that has an insignia… S.T.A.R.S. She rushes down the front path and jumps into A HUMMER with THREE OTHER TROOPERS on board. The vehicle pulls instantly away…

…leaving Chris, looking through the window, puzzled, angry, and very much wounded.

I was browsing through ZombieReportingCenter dot com and came across this article which led me to the script.  I remembered hearing from a friend that Romero was supposed to write or direct Resident Evil but I never read the script or knew anyone who had.

George Romero’s version of the movie starts out completely different.   It starts with some mishaps in a lab being watched through a video screen, then cuts to Chris Redfield feeding some eagles.  After seeing something that freaks him out Chris goes back to Jill Valentines apartment and gets in bed with her.  They talk about how alone they are and then eventually Jill wakes up before Chris because she gets a call from S.T.A.R.S and has to leave.

Oh, and there was something to do with a guy and horses somewhere in that sequence..


non-roads and stops fifty yards from...

...A PAIR OF IRON GATES, each wrought with the letter "A".
Beyond, the shifting fog offers momentary glimpses of...
A MANSION.  Huge.  Like Xandau.  THE TROOPERS, amazed,
climb out and approach the gates.
It looks like they're still going to the Mansion!

A deep, animal SNARL comes from the woods.  The troopers
raise their weapons as they peer into the underbrush.  The
fog keeps sunlight from penetrating.  The forest is a maze
of dark shadows. Leaves flutter.  Limbs SNAP.  Then...

DARK SHAPES can be seen moving, circling.  A half-dozen
of them.  Maybe more.  Jill whips out a transmitter and
quickly types an access code.
It didn't take long for the suspense to start building up.
After this scene it goes to some more recognizable characters like Wesker and Barry Burton.Chris gets out of bed, Helicopters land outside on the street of Raccoon City and attempt to evacuate everybody.

Chris beats up some guards, saves a sheriff and goes to his. . farm? I guess the guy with the horses was running Chris’s farm for him.  The old guy’s laying on the ground dying next to three of the horses that are also dead.

Barry looks worried. His instincts are asking... "We might
need... 'help'".  Against what? We only see this in his eyes,
he says nothing as...

...Wesker leads the team through the woods, unaware of...

...CHRIS, following behind, crouching around trees and
bushes, not a trained commando, but comfortable with the
land, a natural warrior using ancestral instincts.

Chris makes his way through the woods and follows the S.T.A.R.S team members that just landed.  This is only about page 16 of the script, but so far it seems like it would have made a pretty decent movie.

Go over to the Movie Script Place and read the rest of the script.  I might finish reading it all and review it some point in the future but for right now I’ll leave that up to you guys.
