The cult section of the literary world

Staff Picks: Zombies!

A hole has been left in many people’s Sunday evenings with the recent season finale of The Walking Dead, so we here at Bizarro Central are sharing our favourite zombie-themed media in hopes of satiating your lust for all things undead.

Jeff Burk:

Dead Set – a BBC miniseries about a the zombie apocalypse happening and what happens to people filming a reality TV show.

Crossed – a super violent and sadistic comic series created by Garth Ennis and now a rotating list of writers.


Lollipop Chainsaw – a video game were you play a zombie-killing cheerleader. Written by James Gunn (of Slither, Super, and Troma fame).

Constance Ann Fitzgerald:

Zombie Honeymoon – because I love a tragic love story littered with dead things, a few jokes, and some solid gore.


Fido – zombies = pets!

Dawn of the Dead (2004) –  because really, gore FX just keep getting better! And I loved Sarah Polly.

Zombie Strippers – I really thought it was going to be terrible. It was actually fucking awesome. Plus the world’s deadliest “ping pong ball trick”.

Sam Reeve:

We’re Alive – a zombie podcast the just finished its third season. It follows a group of survivors originally from LA as they fight with some seriously scary zombies (and people). High-quality podcast with good actors and sound effects. Features smart zombies and mutated ones!

Zombies and Shit – my favourite Carlton Mellick III book. “Battle Royale meets Return of the Living Dead in a post-apocalyptic action adventure.”

  2. TV: In the Flesh (BBC America)

    Movie: Colin – Famous for its budget, not perfect but worth a rental at the very least.

    Books: Zombie Apocalypse! & Zombie Apocalypse! Fightback – 2 mosaic novels both created by Stephen Jones the design work in these paperbacks where enough to make me buy the first one! Check out the video based on Neil Gaimen’s Doen Among the Dead Men from the second book.

    Kevin Donihe’s Night of the Assholes is easily my favorite zombie book, despite its monsters not being undead.

    But as for “real” zombies, I’m in love with Dead Alive.
