"Unnnnnnnhhhhh…. Uuuuhhhhhh! Brrrrraiiiiiiiinnssssss…"
Yeah, that's what you’d LIKE to hear, isn't it? Well too bad! This week Ally, our understudy of the undead, is exhuming the zombie genre as we talk Train to Busan (2016) and The Girl With All The Gifts (2016). We'll find out where all the bodies are buried in the history of zombie lore, from its Afro-Haitian origins, to its dark fusion with Romero's ghouls, to its chaotic re-imagining for a hilarious/horrifying present.
We'll also sink our chompers into more practical concerns, such as tube-cream manufacturing, our classic "girl-in-a-box" problem, and whether one dead deer will spell the end of humanity.
