That may seem like an odd thing to say right now. A revival of the zombie film? For most people following horror, the zombie film hasn’t gone away. Cable television and the various streaming services are loaded with them; some old, some brand new. It wasn’t even that long ago that Brad Pitt was running around with zombies on the big screen screwing up a perfectly good book’s premise and talk of a follow-up film has been getting thrown around for a while now. As such, it may seem odd to some to say that we’re seeing a revival of the zombie movie. But the fact is, we are.

Have you seen the news from the last week? Have you seen this bit of news? It appears that archeologists have determined that the Giza Pyramid’s mystery chamber may hold Pharaoh’s “meteorite throne” and have determined that they really want to get in there and take a look. See, this is why scientists and archeologists and other professionals should be required to watch a steady diet of horror films. If they did, they would understand what this could mean.

What could this mean, you ask? For one thing, it could mean radioactive mummies. Do you know what radioactive mummies are? They’re just the Egyptian version of radioactive zombies. Do you know what you get with radioactive zombies? You get Nightmare City and being locked into a cycle of terror, carnage, death, and unresolved endings brought about by bad writing and a horrible gimmick twist that should have gotten everyone involved smacked until the stupid came out of them.

Thursday hit as one of those rare beast days where my regularly scheduled Needless Things piece dropped at the same time as one of my Gruesome Magazine pieces. Interestingly, they both have roots in Japan. One looks at a classic kaiju film version of an iconic American monster while the other looks at the modern Japanese take on the ravenous undead.

George Romero had a few less than great comments about The Walking Dead and World War Z (film, not book) in a recent interview. Go read the whole interview later. I linked it in the piece and much of the rest of the interview is rather interesting.
