Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
The mash-up title just about says it all
Film Review  February 5, 2016, by Kimberley Jones
"...In this iteration, the Bennet girls are Shaolin-trained warriors, schooled young to battle the zombie menace. But, as the film puts it, “zombies or no zombies, all women must think of marriage,” and so the story follows the familiar paces of Austen’s 1813 novel, complicated – if not exactly enlivened – by so many undead..."

Zombies for HAAM
Rod Argent’s down with the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians
DAILY Music  September 22, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...The Zombies, known for Sixties hits “Time of the Season,” “She’s Not There,” and “Tell Her No,” return locally after a starring set at Austin Psych Fest in May. The floral pop immortals co-headline the British Invasion concert at the Moody tonight with Animals frontman Eric Burdon..."

Cockneys vs. Zombies
This bloody good zom-com stands out from the crowd of zombies recently invading our screens.
Film Review  August 2, 2013, by Marc Savlov
"...In the first two dueling, ultimately converging plot lines, Hardiker and Treadaway are Terry and Andy, a pair of brothers who hatch a bound-to-be-botched bank job in order to save their grandfather’s retirement home from the wrecking ball. As fate would have it, their scheme goes utterly awry just as the developer’s backhoes unearth a plague of zombies in East London (shades of Hammer’s 1967 classic Quatermass and the Pit)..."

Adapting Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Writer/director Burr Steers mixes bonnets and the undead
DAILY Screens  February 4, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...Dying is easy, as the saying goes, but comedy is hard. So what about jokes about the undead? Writer/director Burr Steers had a simple rule when adapting Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 parody novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies..."

Austin Psych Fest Live (Friday): The Zombies
Baroque-pop UK legends arrive road-tested and hardy
DAILY Music  May 3, 2014, by Scott Schinder
"...In the decades they were absent from the scene following their breakup in 1968, the Zombies retained a powerful mystique. The original UK quintet’s autumnal, baroque-pop masterpiece Odessey and Oracle continued to gain prestige amongst a growing legion of admirers...."

Fun Fun Fun Fest Live Shot: Flatbush Zombies
Alternate Wu-Tang Clan or Beastie Boys?
DAILY Music  November 10, 2013, by Luke Winkie
"...It speaks to hip-hop’s deeply ambiguous commercial moment that Flatbush Zombies, a trio of chittering alt-rap mutants, can convincingly fill a festival slot without a tangible release. The traditional path looks pretty quaint in 2013..."

SXSW Music: Flatbush Zombies, Kevin Gates, Wale
Real, psychotropic, impromptu
DAILY SXSW  March 17, 2016, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...Amidst technical difficulties and a Travis Scott no-show, hip-hop barkers entertained an energetic crowd Wednesday night at the Austin Music Hall. Future singles and trap-rap anthems kept the full house engaged between performances by the Flatbush Zombies, Kevin Gates, and surprise guest Wale...."

Spotlight: The Zombies
Back from the dead
Music Story  March 15, 2013, by Scott Schinder
"..."We haven't really done anything like this before, so it's a bit of a journey into the unknown for us," Zombies frontman Colin Blunstone says of his band's South by Southwest debut...."

DVDanger: Sasquatch and Zombies and Demons, Oh My!
Let the Halloween countdown commence
DAILY Screens  October 3, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...Look, it's easy to kvetch about found footage, but, just like Jeremy Gardner proved with zombies in The Battery, there are still as many ways to do something fresh with the trope as there are directors: From the zany (Frankenstein's Army) to the postmodern (the upcoming Found Footage 3D) to the fourth-wall-warping (Mr Smith). Unfortunately, Willow Creek gets sucked into one of the most tedious conventions of the trope – the locals giving vague warnings about something horrible in the backwoods – and insists on pounding the audience over the head with it for 50 of its 82-minute run time..."

Council: No Zombies Before Midnight
City Council hears budget pleas, aids workers, tenants … & zombies
DAILY News  September 5, 2016, by Michael King
"...• After some fairly comical morning debate on whether costumed Halloween parties – including celebrants dressed as zombies accompanied by the occasional skeleton – constitute disrespect for the dead or innovative outreach for city-owned cemeteries, Council voted to approve a $1.6 million renovation of the Oakwood Cemetery chapel, overdue for repairs and planned for eventual public events...."

Greg Nicotero, From Zombies to Snake Vampires
FX guru on 'The Walking Dead' to 'From Dusk Till Dawn'
DAILY Screens  April 28, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...While Nicotero made his reputation as a film FX guy, more recently he's become a household name for his astounding, gruesome and grisly depictions of another form of the undead: The Walking Dead's eponymous zombies. Weird coincidence time..."

Vaguely Purposed Zombies
Maybe astral projection is the best way to survive one of those nutty First Thursday thingies after all …
Features Story  May 30, 2003, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...I'm in Blackmail, too, moving slowly through Gail Chovan's tony emporium of all things dark and beautiful. I'm moving slowly, my preteen daughter limpeted to my side, because it's packed in Blackmail tonight, people milling thickly about, shuffling like vaguely purposed zombies among the bright and elegant displays..."

Baroque-pop UK legends arrive road-tested and hardy
Music Story  May 8, 2014, by Scott Schinder

The Devil's Rejects
A viciously entertaining psycho-road-movie-revenge-‘n’-wreckage-romance.
Film Review  July 22, 2005, by Marc Savlov

The Lords of Salem
With his fifth horror feature, writer/director Rob Zombie proves he's a unique visionary in a repetitive cinematic genre.
Film Review  April 19, 2013, by Marc Savlov

World War Z
This bio-disaster movie with zombies and Brad Pitt is smart and ambitious, even if it doesn't break the mold.
Film Review  June 21, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It’s nail-bitingly tense at times, although these well-executed moments mix with others that are too much of a murky jumble to follow with any precision. (How much of the murk is due to the unnecessary 3-D, which always casts a pall over the screen image, and how much is due to the ineffectual direction of action by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland) is unclear to me from this viewing.) As for the zombies, they are terrifying for the most part, but at times they seem too much like a CGI fiction..."

Warm Bodies
Last time in the director’s chair, Jonathan Levine made the feel-good cancer movie 50/50; now he's back with a clever and heartfelt zombie rom-com.
Film Review  February 1, 2013, by Kimberley Jones
"...“What am I doing with myself? Why can't I connect with people?” These are the sort of questions that turn humans sleepless and despairing. The twist of Warm Bodies is that the same questions keep zombies up at night, too...."

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
You can't keep a bad zombie down.
Film Review  September 17, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Oded Fehr, Thomas Kretschmann, Jared Harris and Mike Epps. Mindless zombies are back in fashion, apparently..."

House of the Dead
Students are stranded on an island of zombies; viewers are stranded by the filmmakers.

Film Review  October 17, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Kurtz. "Look, they’re obviously zombies," notes one perceptive character, "so the sooner we accept that fact, the sooner we can get on with our lives." Amen to that..."

The animation outfit behind Coraline scores another one for the dark side with this endearingly sweet and spooky ode to the supernatural.
Film Review  August 17, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Until, that is, his mad Uncle Prenderghast (Goodman) informs him that only he, Norman, can save his Salem-esque township from a long-dead witch's curse. Zombies, comedy, and a surprisingly touching dork/jock alliance (via Norman's buff older bro Mitch, voiced by Affleck) ensue...."

Undead Alert!
Local author BJ Burrow hosts a reading/zombie rights rally at BookPeople
DAILY Books  January 22, 2010, by Kimberley Jones
"...BookPeople hosts a reading tonight for local author BJ Burrow, whose novel The Changed is about an ordinary guy who becomes a leading agent in the fight for undead rights. You know what that means, right? Zombies at BookPeople!..."

London Falling
Writer James Moran on his FF twofer, 'Cockneys Vs. Zombies' and 'Tower Block'
Screens Story  September 21, 2012, by Richard Whittaker
"...Scriptwriter James Moran has two films at Fantastic Fest – horror comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies and urban thriller Tower Block – running through their ruins..."

Gay Place
Zombies 'R' Us … eventually
Columns  November 4, 2011, by Kate X Messer
"...If this bloody Halloween marathon taught us anything (other than that Austin has too much going on), it's that if the flesh-eating zombies don't get you, not pacing yourself will. There's nothing like an orgy of dangling body parts and blood-spattered everything to remind you that you're getting long in the tooth (and that zombies will eat anything)..."

How do you make killing Nazi zombies this dull?
Film Review  November 9, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...Nazi zombies are not a new idea: The Reich's hideous record of human rights crimes disguised as research has long been processed by pop culture into Frankenstein-esque plots of undead Wehrmacht. Of course producer J.J..."

Halloween II
Rob Zombie's sequel to his 2007 remake of the original Halloween features Michael Myers coming back to town to wrap up some family business.
Film Review  September 4, 2009, by Marc Savlov

An L.A. apartment building is quarantined in this new horror film, and a news crew's videotape may be the only proof of the strange goings-on.
Film Review  October 17, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...Certainly Quarantine, which takes the kaiju eiga (monster) verité of Cloverfield and repurposes it in the service of baser, gooshier thrills, has more startles per sequence than you'd expect given that it's been unceremoniously dumped into an abysmal thriller market with precious little fanfare. With all the film's running around in the dark shot from POV angles, it does come off as 28 Weeks Later meets David Cronenberg's Rabid or, alternately, an un-fun-house mirror image of Night of the Living Dead with the zombies barricaded inside with you..."

Zombie Strippers
The filmmakers score an A+ for the title of this tongue-in-cheek horror film that stars porn star Jenna Jameson and horror fixture Robert Englund, even though its best special effects come courtesy of breast implants.
Film Review  April 18, 2008, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The filmmakers score an A+ for the title, a pop-culture mash-up guaranteed to tantalize and evoke a knowing laugh. It’s reflective of the movie’s tongue-in-cheek tone, which takes neither zombies nor strippers too seriously but exploits their commercial possibilities to the max..."

Doom is not so much a film as a marketing tie-in, albeit one with some exceptional production values.
Film Review  October 21, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Let’s just cut to the chase straight off, okay? If you play the video game Doom – that’s the one that popularlized this whole "first-person shooter" thing way back in the mid Nineties – then chances are you’re going to want to see this film. It’s a generally accurate representation of the gaming scenario, and a chief component of the film’s final reel is an actual cinematic doppelganger of home play: The audience views the onscreen action via the first-person viewpoint for four uninterrupted minutes as Marine badass Reaper (Urban) blows all manner of creepy zombies and hybrid slug-lamprey beasties to hell..."

Shaun of the Dead
This "romantic comedy … with zombies" has a note-perfect mix of humor, horror, love, and death.
Film Review  September 24, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kate Ashfield, Dylan Moran, Lucy Davis, Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton. You don’t have to be a fan of the zombie epics of George Romero (Night of the Living Dead) to enjoy this supremely engaging and jaw-droppingly (literally) hilarious "romantic comedy … with zombies," but it couldn’t hurt..."

Never Die Alone
Every known hip-hop gangster cliché comes to the fore in this film starring DMX and David Arquette.

Film Review  March 26, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...When it’s not busy seeming like every other hip-hop parable ever made, Dickerson’s film is wallowing in the kind of "bitches and ho’s" misogyny that – even when it’s coming from a nasty character like King David – makes you wonder about the filmmaker’s own feelings on the subject. If Never Die Alone had even a smidgeon of comic relief (or even, say, a bunch of zombies) to offset some of its relentlessly downbeat brutality, it might have been at best tolerable..."

Gorehounds watching this low-budget Japanese splatterfest will think they’ve died (in a, no doubt, spectacularly bloody way) and gone to heaven, so breathtaking are the movie’s nonstop violence and hemorrhaging...
Film Review  July 11, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Gorehounds watching this low-budget Japanese splatterfest will think they’ve died (in a, no doubt, spectacularly bloody way) and gone to heaven, so breathtaking are the movie’s nonstop violence and hemorrhaging bodies. There is very little plot or dialogue involved in this yakuza zombie movie, but, honestly, shouldn’t the idea of yakuza zombies be enough to tantalize the senses? During the movie’s prologue we are told that there are 666 portals that connect Earth to the other side..."

House of 1000 Corpses
It’s like I told my mom: Just because you have the stars of Burnt Offerings, Spider Baby, and Bonnie and Clyde in your horror show doesn’t mean anybody’s going to...

Film Review  April 18, 2003, by Marc Savlov

Disturbing Behavior
John Hughes meets Ira Levin at Carrie's high school. Dopey, histrionic fun from The X-Files alum David Nutter and Scott Rosenberg, writer of a real horror film -- last year's...
Film Review  July 24, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Leave it to an Atom Egoyan regular to be at the crux of small-town America's mental health problems: Greenwood (The Sweet Hereafter, Exotica) is on board as school shrink Dr. Caldicott, whose radical experiments in teen-behavior modification have resulted in this cadre of hot-wired, kill-happy zombies who go in for such buoyant after-school specials as murder, rape, and grocery-store defenestrations..."

New Legend of Shaolin
If you were one of the 100 or so audience members turned away during the Riverside's initial run of this movie, the latest action film from fight film superstar Jet...
Film Review  September 23, 1994, by Joey O'Bryan
"...In between nifty fight sequences, Li finds time to become romantically entangled with a young thief, and serve as a bodyguard to a local bigwig. New Legend of Shaolin offers nothing new and generally suffers from poor plot construction, but it's hard to deny the appeal of a film this loony: Kung fu zombies, deadly needlepoint skills, and a spear with more gadgets than the last two James Bond movies put together are sure to keep audiences entertained and bewildered..."

Fantastic Fest Review: The Girl With All the Gifts
A post-apocalyptic world that really grows on (or in) you
DAILY Screens  September 26, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...No horror writer could imagine a fate as ghastly as that suffered by ants at the mercies of Ophiocordyceps unilateralis. That's a fungus that grows in their brains, turning them into what even researchers call zombies...."

DVDanger: Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things
Star Alan Ormsby on the counterculture zombie classic
DAILY Screens  February 26, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...It's hard to remember a time when zombies weren't ubiquitous. But in 1972, when Alan Ormsby starred in Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, it was all fresh meat..."

"...South by Southwest continues stocking up for next month’s convergence. Today’s new batch of 147 acts, featuring the return of 2015 buzz band Børns, downer folk favorite Sun Kil Moon, PCP-laced rappers Flatbush Zombies, and first wave German krautrockers Faust, brings the Music conference total to 1,559 – about three-quarters of its full firepower...."

Fantastic Fest Round Two
DAILY Screens  August 12, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Fantastic Fest has announced its second round of films, and boy, are zombies back in style. Not that they ever went out of style: just twenty minutes ago we were walking our fourpaws down Sixth Street and relishing the balmy aftergoo of our recent thundershowers when -- we kid you not -- a real, live (or not) zombie shambled past us...."

Zombie Heaven
Two former Zombies, back from the dead
Music Story  February 20, 2004, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Of the innumerable scriptures that compose the rock & roll bible, Zombie Heaven is one of the most prophetic and divine. British invasion goth pop that left its minor-key mark on all subsequent waves of progressive, psychedelic, and UK mope, with "She's Not There," "Tell Her No," and "Time of the Season," the Zombies also plagued the U.S., a multigenerational swath spanning Elvis to The Simpsons...."

Arrested Development?
Young-at-heart Austin is home to a booming Young Adult literature scene
Books Story  December 24, 2010, by Melanie Haupt
"...Hell, forget about the Greasers and Socs or learning how to navigate the uniquely terrifying world of sanitary napkins that you read about when you were a kid. These days, teen lit is all about vampires, zombies, angels, and unicorns, but it's also about hate crimes, homosexuality, rape, and dystopian nightmares...."

TV Eye: Anarchy in the UK
A British import brings the horror
Screens Column  October 22, 2010, by Belinda Acosta
"...Back in the day, zombies were creepy flesh-eaters that attacked their human prey with the speed of a drippy faucet. Contemporary audiences are much less patient..."

The Film Prof's Drunk, and the Kids Are Not All Right
Zombie auteur George Romero delivers another state of the union
Screens Story  February 29, 2008, by Spencer Parsons
"...Perhaps it's prankishly appropriate in the time of viral video "2 Girls 1 Cup" that what we actually get for our ticket to Diary of the Dead is not exactly a new Romero flick but rather The Death of Death, a polemical, media-obsessed student video from inside Romero's bloody, funny B-movie universe – tacky horror repurposed as documentary of the apocalypse when zombies attack. That the director himself turns up – in an emergency broadcast as a military officer presenting zombie attack footage altered for some nefarious purpose we'll never know – only adds to the film's pleasurably disconcerting unreliability..."

TV Eye: 'If Only' TV
What if Sarah Palin met The Walking Dead?
Screens Column  November 19, 2010, by Belinda Acosta
"...Meanwhile, zombie series The Walking Dead is another hit for AMC, also drawing 6-million-plus viewers (mostly men, according to The Hollywood Reporter online). Zombies are scary..."

Zombies are inherently boring
Books Review  April 21, 2006, by Rick Klaw

All Over Creation: Nativity
A new musical by the 'Urinetown' team is born on the 40 Acres, and the chorus line craves bra-a-ains
Arts Column  December 13, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...'Tis the season when much attention is given to what is born – the Son of Heaven, on Earth as man; the sun in heaven, returning with spring – but I didn't expect this year's births to include singing and dancing zombies...."
