This Chinese Zombie 108 Movie Looks Amazing!

Usually, zombie movies mean “low budget” flicks with no real value added to them and that gets even worse for foreign zombie movies. However, I just received a trailer for an upcoming Chinese (or Japanese, can’t say for sure) zombie movie title Zombie 108. And it looks hot like hell!

Here’s the synopsis of the upcoming film: “The nuclear disaster that Japan suffered accidentally alters the genes of the influenza virus. A group of young people get infected and haven’t paid any attention to their illness, until a boy surprisingly bites a girl’s throat in a drunken night out. Their friends start screaming at the gushing blood. After the viral event, the government orders to quarantine the sick and evacuate all residents in the vicinity. But those drunk party people are not aware of this message. Meanwhile, the army and the police join hands to form a SWAT team to enter the quarantined zone. Those survivors suddenly become zombies to attack the living. In no time, the whole city is film with such huge bloodshed. People from all walks of life – including gangsters, policemen, SWAT teams and the civilians – are willing to work together to escape, but they have hidden schemes to compete with and they may even kill each other.” (you gotta love the Engrish, too!)

Unfortunately, no extra information was available about Zombie 108 and the movie is not featured on IMDB, but it sure looks like one hell of a project with a pretty big budget too – so if you find let, let me know where so that I can see it too!

Fan-Funded The Silent City Web-Series Will Debut in May

Just recently I found out about The Silent City, an upcoming web series that is going to be released sometime in May / April this year. Although it appears that it’s not completely focused on zombies, but more on storytelling and a post-apocalyptic setting where just one single survivor is left in New York, the upcoming web series also seems to have some zombies in (and more than 1 character) and is completely exciting.

The Silent City raised funds on Kickstarter and is now preparing for launch. It is shortly described as “A new take on the post-apocalyptic road movie, The Silent City explores a world where one wrong turn can mean the extinction of the species.”

What I really liked about this upcoming web series (the first season will have 5 3-minute long episodes) was the explanation the director gave: “We want to show that smart, meaningful, soulful films don’t have to be boring, and that zombie films don’t have to be brainless.” That is very interesting and promising!

And of course, there are not just words to back the upcoming series up! There’s also a teaser trailer for The Silent City available on YouTube and it looks amazing. I am really excited about this project and honestly I can’t wait to see it! Until then, the teaser is all we’ve got:

If you want to keep updated with the latest The Silent City episode, keep an eye on their YouTube channel.

Here Are Some Nice Zombie Valentine’s Day Cards

Valentine’s Day is coming and I guess that us, the zombie fans, can only celebrate it with some zombie themed cards for our loved ones – who are hopefully alive and hot trying to eat our braaaaains.

[quads id=1]

Therefore, inspired by the release of some zombie themed Valentine’s Day cards released by the Walking Dead team (see them below), I searched the internet for some more… and I was surprised to see that there are not that many zombie themed Valentine’s Day Cards. But still enough to keep us going this year.

Check out first the Walking Dead Valentine’s Day zombie cards:

And now a few more (and more awesome!) zombie themed Valentine’s Day cards:

What do you think about these zombie themed Valentine’s Day cards? Would you give something like this to your loved one?

Alternatively, you could use the art and editor from Escape Room Z to create your own zombie cards. I’ve written about this printable escape room game here (check it out – I really loved playing it!), but never really touched on its customizability. Using the editor, and all the cute zombie graphics they give you, you could really make some killer cards! (pun totally intended!)

Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead Looks Like a Pretty Cool Zombie Movie

‘Woo! A zombie movie with Colin Farrel!’ – this is what I first thought when I stumbled upon Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead.

Something was not making sense though and after looking closer at the trailer and the details, I realized that Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead is not actually starring Colin Farrel, but Corey Sevier, a guy that totally looks like the Colin.

The good thing is that this made me look closer and pay a bit more attention to Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead and I realized that it looks a lot better than most of your indie and usually crap zombie movies: despite it’s hilarious and kind of stupid premise – Bin Laden is coming back from the dead as a zombie and he has to be killed… again together with his army of zombie terrorists, Osombie seems like a very solid project with good special effects, intense atmosphere and some really good looking zombies. I am surprised.

Interested? You can check it out on IMDB here.

Anything Zombie, Under New Management

Hello there, zombie lovers (I know it sounds bad, but I’m also sure you know what I mean). It’s been a short while since the owner of Anything Zombie has changed and I took the blog from Chinaren (the previous owner of the blog, if that’s not clear). Unfortunately, in the process, most of the content here was lost but hopefully that loss will be soon forgotten and replaced with extra, fresh and zombielicious content.

My name is Calin, but for the purposes of this blog I’ve chosen to go for a pen name – an uninspired Zombie Man, that is – and I plan to deliver all the excitement that surrounds the zombie mania as often as possible.

I just had to tweak the blog a little bit – and there’s still a some work to be done, but mainly I can say that everything is working just fine or seems to be working just fine and zombie content will start to find its way here regularly.

As I said in the About page, you should expect to find here anything related to the zombie mania, from personal thoughts to zombie book and movie reviews, news and game spotlighting, plus images that might make you go “Awwww” or give birth to that urge of getting a shotgun and blowing a zombie’s head off.

So thanks for bearing with me and the blog during this ownership change and let’s hope that the future is bright for Anything Zombie!

Zombie Games That'll Thrill


I’ve been quite into a zombie game on my Android device lately, and I was wondering if I should post this here or on my Crentech blog, but here won out in the end.

Anyway, you can play BioFrenzy on most Android devices as a good stress reliever. It’s a side shooter with a vast array of weapons and options, which gives the game a much longer lifespan that it would otherwise have, given its fairly repetitive nature.

There’s the almost obligitory chainsaw, shotgun, flamethrower and much more, up to a Aliens type robot suit which you buy from dropped coins from the re-dead.

Some of the zombies remind me of those in Plants vs Zombies, as they wear a bucket on their head. Perhaps they’re moonlighting.

Anyway, you can see a promo on the video below. I know it says it’s for the iPhone, but ignore that. (Does anyone still use an iPhone? How quaint.) A QR code is below too, ‘cos I’m just that helpful.

Minecraft Undead

I don’t know how it happened, but I’m addicted to Minecraft. If you’ve not played this game, don’t. You won’t have a life for the next… well, I’ll let you know.

The fundamentals are simple. Use the materials you find in the massive massive land to build things.

Hardly exciting eh?

Hardly exciting like Lego to an imaginative ten year old. I can’t damn stop building!

Anyway, what does this have to do with zombies? Simple, as night falls the monsters come out, including zombies.

These bastards aren’t scary to look at, and they’re not that hard to kill, but their moans are sure damned creepy!

Tears of Blood (Free Zombie Novel)

Here you can read the first part of my new ‘Tears of Blood’ novel. I hope you will find it interesting – let me know in the comments below!

Tears of Blood

“Rise! Rise! Rise! I command thee RISE!” Urt waved one hand over the corpse in the prescribed fashion and threw the Redroot powder with the other.

Nothing happened.

“Rise damn you! Rise and do my bidding.”

The corpse failed to do any such thing.

“You will rise!” screamed Urt, losing his temper.

The body twitched and, for a brief moment, the eyes opened. Urt could have sworn a moment of panic passed over the dead mans’ face, but then it was gone, and the body slumped back and remained still. Again.

[quads id=1]


The necromancer’s apprentice punched the stomach of the corpse, which resulted in no change at all. It remained dead, counter to everything that was good and natural. Or at least evil and unnatural, which was the situation here.

“No luck then boss?” a voice said.

“It must have been the Redroot powder,” he replied. “Too old.”

“Yeah, and I’ll sprout a body and do the tango.”

“Shut your face you!” Urt swung round and pointed a finger at the partially rotten head sitting on the table next to him.

“Oh, that’s it. Take it out on your only friend in the world. Like it’s my fault.” The detached noggin rolled its eyes.

“You are not my friend,” the young necromancer scowled, brushing back a lock of dark hair that had fallen down over his eyes. “You are the first of my army. My undead army of world domination.”

“The head of it I hope.”

“Oh, original.”

“I like to help where I can.”

“Well, you can come with me and help me look for more Redroot.”

“You know it wasn’t the…”

“Shut up.”

“Yes boss.”

Urt stepped back from his latest failed attempt at raising the dead and heaved a deep sigh. If he was honest with himself, it probably wasn’t the root. It was the same thing that stopped him raising anything larger than a frog. The same thing that had prevented him from raising anything worthwhile since…

“Hey, if you’re finished with the body, do you mind passing me over a bit of brain?” Horace, his heady companion, smacked what remained of his lips.

“You ask me that every time, and every time I say no,” he replied, suddenly very weary.

“No harm in trying. I’d shrug my shoulders about now,” Horace commented. “If I had any.”

Urt ignored the zombie head and looked around his small living quarters. It was a depressing place, even for someone who was supposed to live in depressing places. The small chamber barely had room for his work bench, which was pushed up against the wall. Behind him, close enough for him to fall over if he took a step back, was a narrow bunk. A single window looked out over the marshland that served as scenery in this part of the world. It was a tiny space.

“We work with what we have,” he muttered, sitting on his bed, which squeaked and sagged in the middle.

“Don’t get down boss,” said Horace, in an overly cheerful voice. “You’ll get the hang of it one day, and then it’ll be world domination in no time at all. Zombies all over the place, obeying your every whim.”

“I appreciate the sentiment,” Urt sighed. “But I’ll be undead and a lich before that happens at this rate. Maybe old Mangle was wrong about me.”

“No, he might have been mad and deranged, but he knew his stuff. If he said you had power, then you have power. I’m folding my arms and tapping my foot now, for your information,” the head added.

“Maybe he realized he was wrong. Maybe that’s why he disappeared.”

“Come on now. We’ve been over this so many times,” Horace said. “He ran into an angry bear or fell into the swamp or something. There are a million things that could have happened to him. I’m shaking my head sadly about this.”

[quads id=2]

Urt smiled slightly. His only, remaining, human success was prone to describing the actions of the body it didn’t have when feeling under stress. “We all do what we can,” he murmured.

“That’s the spirit boss! Come on, let’s get rid of this useless body and find some Redroot shall we? I’ll give you a hand… Haha! Never gets old that one. I’m holding my sides now.”

“Why does my only speech capable minion think he’s a comedian?” Urt stood up. “Very well, let’s go for a walk.”

“Great. Now, where did I leave my shoes?”


Stalking through the swamp, Horace swinging in a pouch hanging from his hip, calmed Urt down a little. It was good to get out of the shack for a while. A change of scenery, even if the scenery consisted mainly of stinking plant life and fetid pools of water.

The odd misshapen head broke the surface of the murky liquid at intervals, but the gators knew he wasn’t food. Uncomfortable things happened to the creatures that had tried, and the lesson had been learned by the survivors. Even the mosquitoes and bugs kept away from him, he was powerful enough to repulse those at least.

“…boss? Boss! Are you listening to me? What’s the point in having me along if you don’t pay attention?”

Snapping out of his reverie, Urt looked down at the head. “Sorry Horace, I was miles away. What is it?”

“I’m pointing over there,” the zombie said, rolling his eyes. “Redroot. You do still want some I presume?

“Oh, yes. Thanks.” Urt scanned the area and located the ugly brown plants. Sauntering over he squatted down and plucked the toadstool shaped growths out of the ground. They resisted, as if reluctant to come, but a good tug freed them from the earth.

The crop harvested, he stood up and took a deep breath. The methane in the air lifted his spirits. If there was any place more suited to Necromancy, he didn’t know where it was. Actually, he pondered as he started walking once more, that really was true. Most of his young adult life had been spent in this place, under the harsh guidance of mad Mangle, his old master. Mangle had insisted he had power, great power, despite the failed attempts to raise.

Squelching through the bog, Urt wrinkled his forehead. It seemed that as he grew older he grew less able to raise anything. There had been a time, once, when he was very young, he’d performed a great magic. That was when Mangle had found him, or shortly after anyway, when his village has expelled him in fear, so Mangle had explained. He shook his head. It was all such a long time ago, the memories were fuzzy at best.

“Where we going now, boss?” Horace once again piped up, no doubt bored by their wandering.

“What? Oh, er…” Urt stopped and looked around. He’d been walking aimlessly, lost in his thoughts. Not the best idea considering one wrong step and he’d be hair deep in quicksand.

Getting his bearings, he discovered the area he’d wandered into was close to the small trail that led to the only civilization in the area, though to term a village that had named itself Mudrut civilization was pushing the boundaries of the definition.

“Maybe we should go and dig up another corpse,” he said.

“You didn’t bring a shovel,” Horace pointed out.

“There’s usually one lying around,” Urt replied, though in truth a bucket would probably serve just as well. Mudrut’s method of disposing of their dead lacked all ceremony. The villagers seemed to believe that the swamp did the best job of getting rid of bodies, though in fact it was usually Urt that performed that duty.

“May as well go and take a look,” he said, taking a wet step forward. “As we’re in the area.”

“That’s the way to go! Get back on the horse,” Horace encouraged, as the young necromancer squelched his way along the path towards the huddled mass of rude dwellings that made up Mudrut.

As he approached the village he slowed, moving with care. The villagers knew there was a dark wizard in the swamp, but they didn’t know what he looked like. Urt wanted to keep it like that, on the vague suspicion they wouldn’t be enlightened enough to treat him with the fear and respect that he deserved. They were more likely to throw stones.

“There’s the burial area,” whispered Horace, from Urt’s waist. “Can you see if there’s any new business there?”

“Not yet,” Urt replied. He scrambled behind a bush and peered through its slimy leaves, trying to make out if there was the telltale lump that indicated a fresh corpse. They didn’t come along very often, and the most recent had only been a few weeks ago, so he was surprised to see not one, but two low mounds.

“We’re in luck,” he whispered. After a final quick look left and right, he dashed forward in a bent over run.

“Two of them!” said Horace, spotting the graves. “I’m rubbing my hands together in glee!”

“Hush,” Urt said, sticking his head up and looking over at the village. “We should have come back at night.”

“Oh it’s alright. They’re probably getting drunk or whatever the living do these days.”

Ignoring the dead head, Urt rolled the sleeves of his robe up and stuck one hand into the mud and groped about until he touched flesh. With some effort, he managed to pull the body slowly its rest until the wet earth released its grasp with a dull pop. The body slid free like a particularly gruesome delivery.

“It’s a young one,” Horace said. “Practically a baby. What a waste, they’re so tasty fresh.”

“No eating my experiments,” Urt scolded, grimacing at the mud on his arms and reaching back down, into the other grave.

The second one took more effort, and he was covered in mud by the time the cadaver, a girl of maybe five years old, was free of the embrace of the cold ground.

“At least they won’t be hard to carry,” Horace pointed out, as Urt viewed his finds with distaste. How was he to build an army with young child zombies? It wasn’t fair.

“Beggars can’t be choosers,” he muttered. Putting the baby in the sack he carried for herbs, he had to squash it down a bit to make it fit, he slung it over his back and turned his attention to the girl, only to step back in shock. She was looking at him!

“What the hell!” he said. “She’s alive! How can they bury a living person?”

“Dunno,” Horace said. “Does this mean I can taste her though? Just a finger, nothing important.”

“No.” Urt sidled forward and examined the girl, who blinked and slowly sat up. “No eating children, you don’t know where they’ve been.” He directed his attention to the child. “Who are you?”

More coming soon!

Excited for more? In the meantime, why not try a new zombie escape room game? Escape Room Z is a printable escape room game that you’ll absolutely love… you do like zombies, don’t you? I tried it with my friends and can confirm, it’s seriously fun! You can read all about our epic game night here.
