Do you like zombies? Do you like The Beatles? Good news! The Beatles are zombies! See the new book Paul is Dead: The British Zombie Invasion! Hells yeah!

'The Man with the Iron Fists'! Directed, score(d), written, and starring RZA! Kung-fu! That's the most crazy awesome chain of things since the above chain of crazy awesome things!

Kristen Wiig is optioning Clown Girl, a book about a lady clown who's tempted into the life of clown-fetishist prostitution.

I'd have more, probably, but The Playlist has up and disappeared (making all prior links to them invalid, as it were). I may have missed something--I have heard rumblings of them being railed for their music-related name--but would anyone know where the fuck they went? Because, seriously, I can't live off Empire. I can't do it.

Here's various new movie stills.

It's amazing to me that no matter how many zombified incarnations of various stories and events occur, I just can't get sick of it. They always amuse me. Thanks for the news. :)

I was excited to find out that David O. Russell will be adpating Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. A match made in heaven I'd say.

For now, I will see anything Kristen Wiig does. Until I get sick of her for doing the same schtick over and over.

The thought of people having a sexual fetish related to clowns makes me want to hurl myself out of the nearest window.
