If you're going to have a swimming pool full of blood, there've gotta be a few rules, ya know?
Over in the U.K. (which basically explains everything about this story right off) some weird chaps will be celebrating the release of the latest Resident Evil video game by taking a dip in a pool of blood-colored water.
And attendants won't just be seeing red when this all goes down, either; human torso floats, intestine-shaped lane markers, zombie lifeguards and a "freshly killed human corpse" diving board will also be prepared for the day, and participants can retrieve some vials of anti-virus serum from the bottom and then dry off with blood-spattered towels. Talk about some killer theme commitment. Get More »
It's somewhat only appropriate that there are a lot — a lot — of zombie movies, as there are usually a lot of zombies (they tend to travel in hordes, ya know). For better and worse, the overcrowded (or is it overrun?) genre probably has at least ten times as many absurd installments as it does classics like "Night of the Living Dead" and "Dawn of the Dead."
And why not, really? Zombie movies are fun and cheap to make and they make themselves right at home in any scenario, whether it be in the 'hood or on a plane or in Nazi Germany or the halls of a high school.
Peruse our collection of some of the greatest examples of cinematic zombie foolishness. And keep in mind that this is probably only the beginning.
Sports fans, and football fans in general, enjoy using war metaphors to describe the action. But this year, the Super Bowl is going to take things to new heights thanks to the release of the first television teaser for Brad Pitt's upcoming zombie epic "World War Z."

You think zombies are disgusting, frightening nightmare-fodder. Sure, but did you know they can also be super sexy?
What's that? You don't believe us? Well, fine then. Watch Nicholas Hoult smolder in "Warm Bodies," in theaters tomorrow ... or just flip through this gallery and see for yourself.
You may best know Dave Franco as "James Franco's little brother," but it's time to move beyond that. Though Franco shares his sib's chiseled features and surname, Dave's out to make a name for himself. Between a hilarious turn as a cool kid-turned-con in "21 Jump Street" and his most recent role as a gun-toting tough guy in the post-zombie apocalypse rom-com "Warm Bodies," in theaters this weekend, there's a new Franco on the block, in a big way.
"It's all been going somewhat smoothly, so don't f*ck it up," Franco told NextMovie during a recent interview to promote his new zombie rom-com. Beyond that helpful advice, Franco also spoke to us about his zombie survival strategy, playing drunk and the status of the "21 Jump Street" sequel. Get More »
Sometimes that unapproving stare is more powerful than any bite to the brain.
We've got nothing but respect for "Warm Bodies" if only because it attempts to tell a love story featuring a damn zombie. That's quite the ambitious undertaking, as zombies are hard to love with their constant lumbering about and stinking up the place and trying to eat you and all that. Not our idea of romance, at least not during waking hours. (...) Get More »
"I'm lonely, I'm lost," Nicholas Hoult, as an angsty, undead young adult, laments. Then: "I'm literally lost. I've never been to this part of the airport before."
That's the tone of "Warm Bodies," the Jonathan Levine-directed zombie dramedy starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, slated for a Feb. 1 release, the first four minutes of which has hit the web courtesy of Fandango. Get More »
Zombies! They're the most terrifying undead creatures around (and definitely the grossest), because they won't talk to you, they barely resemble their human selves, and you sure can't reason with them. All they want to do is catch you and eat your braaaaaains.
Prep for Halloween with our gif wall (via Rich Juzwiak) of zombies doing what they do best: coming to get you. They may be dead, but dude, those suckers can move. Get More »

With the glut of walking dead we've seen on the silver screen in the past few years, it might seem like we've reached a saturation point with zombie outbreaks in the movies.
Lionsgate's hoping that's not true, however, as Deadline is reporting they've acquired the rights to recent video game release "Dead Island," a tale of a tropical resort overrun with reanimated corpses hungry for human flesh. Get More »
