Due to my former aversion to creature features, I was a little slow in getting around to watching Slither. Even knowing it was a firmly tongue-in-cheek flick, it took me far too long. So I’m a procrastinator–these things happen. Continue Reading →
Well boys and girls, tomorrow is a big day for those of you with a zombie obsession. Tomorrow night, on AMC at 9 p.m., The Walking Dead returns! Now to be honest, I forgot about it until today. I know, I know, if this were the zombie apocalypse I’d be chewed up meat by now. Continue Reading →

Last Sunday was the Halloween edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School featuring our very own Penny and Elle with the lovely Lavender Menace as zombie pin-ups devouring their helpless victim, Sarkany. Being a fan of both zombies and pin-ups, I was looking forward to an evening of sketching and fun.
If I were smart, I would have taken a sexxay and clever teaser pic to accompany this article (my foot in the adorable Betsey Johnson heels I’m wearing at Dr. Sketchy’s tomorrow, decapitated from my jeans and rumpled t-shirt) but you’re going to have to settle for this little guy. He’s waiting for a fresh coat of paint and tomorrow, he’ll be part of the set. If you see him, take a picture and we’ll feature you in an awesome horrorful Q&A! Tomorrow, Penny and Elle appear as zombie pin-ups alongside Cait Cool! Together, they defeat and devour Sarkany! Come for the tits, stay for the intestines! It’s gonna be a ghoulish good time!
With all of this Voodoo on my brain, I felt like revisiting an old favorite of mine, White Zombie. This movie is considered the first ever feature film about zombies. Another fun fact–Voodoo went underground in part because of this film’s misrepresentation of the religion.
White Zombie is about a pair of newlyweds, Madeleine and Neil, vacationing in Haiti. They meet a wealthy plantation owner, Charles Beaumont, who invites them to his home for their marriage ceremony. While on the road, they meet Bela Lugosi, playing Murder Legendre (his name strikes fear in the hearts of many!), and some of his zombies. Murder seems fascinated by the couple and snatches Madeleine’s scarf. He has a deal with Beaumont to turn Madeleine into a zombie so that Beaumont can have her as his. It’s up to her new husband and the missionary, Dr. Bruner, to save her soul. Continue Reading →
