Pranks and Halloween go hand in hand. Movie studios, especially, love pulling them at this time of year to promote an upcoming horror flick. The telekinesis stunt aimed at unsuspecting coffee patrons to promote the Carrie remake a couple years back is one of my favorites. This latest one, ranks right up there.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, which hits theaters this Friday, has a scene where the lead characters end up at a zombie strip club. Obviously, that’s what you do during a zombie attack 😉

Wisely, Paramount Pictures headed to Las Vegas to target poor unsuspecting horny dudes at a peeler bar. These boys found out the hard way that not all lap dances lead to happy endings. The reactions on their faces when a zombie ambushes them are hilarious. Check out all the hilarity below.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Synopsis

Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Debuts First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

This isn’t your parent’s Pride and Prejudice. This bad-ass retelling of the Jane Austen classic is definitely tailored for the zombie-loving generation of today.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is the latest entry in the growing mashup film genre, following in the footsteps of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. This one, though, looks to be the most ridiculous, but in a fun escapism sort of way. I can’t wait to see it.

The upcoming 2016 film is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s bestselling 2009 parody novel which combines Austen’s beloved classic with zombie fiction. The character’s tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes has now a new challenge to contend with- an army of undead zombies.

The film stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies attacks theaters on February 5, 2016. Check out the trailer below. If this becomes a huge hit, I fully expect A Tale of Two Cities and Zombies, Great Expectations and Zombies, etc.. to come shortly thereafter.

Are you or someone you know constantly distracted by technology…constantly distracted by what people post on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook? As you know, all of these such social networks are available as apps on all smartphones so quite often you can see people walk around like a “zombie” as they stare into their iPhone and become oblivious to the world around them.

From the comedy duo that brought us the “Instagram Me Baby” music video and the epic online validation movie trailer, Likes), the hilarious Ryan Steele and Amy Goodmurphy introduce “Zombie.”

The awful thing is that I totally see Tyrell and I as Ryan and Amy in this video – not to the same extreme, but definitely some similarities – LOL. Enjoy the hilarious video below and put your phone away more often!

The first four minutes of an upcoming movie called Warm Bodies has been released and it’s definitely worth checking out! The film stars Nicholas Hoult, whom we first got to know in About A Boy, and later in A Single Man. He’s also the star of Jack The Giant Slayer and will also be reprising his role as Hank McCoy / Beast in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

In Warm Bodies, Hoult stars as R, a zombie who becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims. Their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. The first four minutes sets the scene for the film and gives you a good feel for what to expect. I wasn’t expecting to like it, but I was pleasantly surprised.

In addition to Hoult, the film also stars Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco and Cory Hardrict. Check out the first four minutes of the film below!

The first trailer for a new zombie thriller called World War Z starring Brad Pitt has just been releases and it looks awesome! It’s based on a 2006 post-apocalyptic horror novel of the same name by author Max Brooks. The film is directed by Marc Forster.

In the film, Brad Pitt plays Gerry Lane, a worker at the United Nations, as he searches the globe for information that can stop the zombie outbreak that is bringing down nations. In the trailer, we see the madness that ensues when everyone first encounters the outbreak. Gerry Lane and his family are in a car in the middle of downtown when chaos breaks out. It looks as though this could be one of the big blockbusters of next summer – especially considering that Pitt (who is looking good) is the leading man.

The film doesn’t hit theaters untile June 21, 2013. In the meantime, check out the exciting first trailer below!

Could A Zombie Apocalypse Ever Happen?

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

Last night, I celebrated Halloween by watching Chernobyl Diaries, which is now definitely in the Top 10 of the scariest movies I’ve ever scene. In the movie, there are zombie-like humans and animals that terrorize a group of stranded adventure-seeking tourists when they visit the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. Of course, these mutated humans aren’t your typical virus zombies, but they were still scary as hell.

ASAP Science uploaded a video a couple days ago that dealt with the question of scientifically speaking, could a zombie apocalypse ever happen? If it’s zombies coming back from the dead…not very likely. But if it’s a virus that induces the zombie-like qualities of rage and the incessant need to eat human flesh… hypothetically, yes.

Find out why this is scientifically possible by watching the ASAP Science video below. It’s quite interesting and certainly a scary thought.

The Zombie Syndrome

In: Dan, Random Reads, The Arts

Okay. Ali and I took in one of the most unique shows slash performance arts projects hitting the streets of Vancouver. The ‘show’ is titled The Zombie Syndrome, and I’m honestly struggling with how to even classify this piece of work. The show itself takes place on the streets of Vancouver, and includes constant movement from all of the participants and audience members!

I received a phone call and voice message the day before the show letting me know exactly where Ali and I needed to meet, aptly dubbed ‘the secret rendezvous point’. We were joined by seven other people, and were quickly swept up into a world of science and the need for all of us to save the world from an apparent zombie invasion. Man, I love me some zombies! And Vancouver was the perfect backdrop for this unique play of sorts.

I’ve been forbidden to tell you anymore about the play, other than it is completely interactive from an audience perspective, requiring several people to use their phones and help uncover the mystery and steps of the story. It’s a brilliant concept, and wonderfully crafted by The Virtual Stage. I honestly want to spill my guts about this experience, but you really have to see it for yourself!
