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.”
