Despite the poor first quarter, with arguably Stalled being the only notable release, 2014 is still promising to be a fantastic year for zombie fans.
Along with the many films and shorts we have already covered on this blog (Bombshell Bloodbath, Once Upon a Time in Jerusalem, Death Do Us Apart) and those that we haven’t (The Dead 2, Dead Snow 2, Goal of the Dead and many more) one film threatens to lay the smack down on all of its rivals, and may even bring back the lucho libre vs zombie trend.
That film is ‘Pro wrestlers vs zombies’, featuring a host of, as you guessed it, pro wrestlers both past and present, including Matt Hardy, Kurt Angle, Shane Douglas and more importantly Hacksaw Jim Duggan and the B movie and wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper, this is sure to be heavy hitter.
You won’t be surprised to learn there doesn’t seem to be much of a plot and while it’s likely to only appeal to a select audience, the trailer looks a lot of fun and thankfully not being a WWE movie, it looks pretty bloody too, pretty bloody awesome.
Due out end of this month in the USA we hear, hopefully we can confirm sooner rather than later. In the meantime follow the film on Twitter.

Zombipedia recently heard some fantastic news – there is a kickstarter campaign to get an extended version of the amazing 2012 Spanish short ‘ Fist of Jesus‘, resurrected in the form of “Once upon a time in Jerusalem” and they need your support to make this a reality.
Although we have supported crowd funded films before we are always sceptical but the offerings on this film blew us away with their diversity and value, so not only will you be helping support what looks like a genuine classic but also you will be getting a pretty good return for your cash. Still not convinced check the perks on the kickstarter page and watch the short clip below;
Don’t delay support today and we will have much more on this film very soon.

Fulci, Lenzi, Gordon all these are great directors with noticeable entries in the genre and I think in 2014 we can add Mullen to that list with perhaps our most eagerly anticipated film for a few years.
Channeling the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft through Lucio Fulci it has been a long time since a film has generated so much deserved hype and this Italian style zombie film is paradoxically something fresh yet harkens back to the golden period of Italian (and arguably zombie) cinema.
From the three trailers we have seen, everything screams quality, especially the amazing make up and special fx, we truly were blown away and believe you will be too.
Along with The Dead 2 and Mar Negro, 2014 promises to be the true year for a zombie scene revival and a fantasic one for fans, miles away from the action-orientated, horror lite World War Z or glut of horror-comedys in the wake of Shaun of the Dead’s success (note: this is more the saturation of the market, a fair few- Stag night of the dead, Stalled etc. are worthy entries) but it looks like zombie cinema finally has got its horror back.
Check out the recently released extended Bombshell Bloodbath trailer below and read our interview with director Brett Mullen here:

Stalled, the festival hit UK zomedy is now out on DVD and Blu Ray and fast becoming a hit on home release, flying up the charts already.
It is a film that Alan Jones, one of the organisers of Frightfest called ‘One of the cleverest films I have seen for quite some time’ and Rue Morgue magazine described as ‘Destined to become a future cult classic.’ there really is no excuse to not check this film out.
If you aren’t familiar with the film it is set on Christmas Eve, where WC, a tired janitor on his final shift, wearily enters a ladies restroom to complete his work whilst an office party, to which he is not invited takes place.
Two drunken office girls enter, so WC lays down his tool-box and hides in the centre stall but moments later he is horrified to witness one of the girls is savaged by her rabid pal! If there’s one place you don’t want to be stuck in during a zombie outbreak, it’s a cubicle in the ladies toilets. WC is quite literally STALLED!
To celebrate the release the team behind the film have released a new trailer, so if you haven’t discovered this film already check it out below, then read our feature on the film our interview with writer and lead actor Dan Palmer or even check our review.
Available from all good online retailers including Amazon and most stores including HMV, don’t delay and order Stalled today.

Following in the footsteps of the crazy Japanese before them, the French have proven they are as mad as a box of frogs by combining zombies and sport, in this case, my favourite, football.
Due out sometime later this year, we know very little about this movie but we do know we are excited, and we certainly hope that it is as good as La Horde.
Check out the trailer below and keep your eyes peeled for a English-subbed release.

This old blog post has been doing the rounds on social media so for anyone who may have missed it, according to the Discovery channels blog site in December 2012 “some scientists believe the possibility of a mutated virus could very well attack our brains, and given the density of our population, affected individuals could take out entire cities in very little time.”
