Lakewood Memorial (Book) - Chapter Thirteen Is Now Online

Go here to read the 13th chapter from Robert R. Best's great first installment to his zombie trilogy. Here's a little snippet of what you'll see:
Brooke sighed. “Okay. We'll bang on the door and keep them all distracted. You get into the kitchen, get the phone, then get back up here.” 
Dalton nodded and smiled. 
“What're you so happy about?” said Maylee. 
“You guys are doing my idea.” 
“Whoopie-doo,” said Maylee, smirking. “Get in the hole.” 
Dalton stepped over to the hole grinning. 
A woman outside the door groaned, loud and gurgling on some kind of fluid. Blood, Maylee figured. Maybe bile. It sent a cold spasm up Maylee's back.

Resident Evil 6 (Game) - Play As Ada Wong Or A Zombie

The game hits store shelves on 02 October. Read the following press release from Capcom:
Ada Wong will be a playable character with her own individual campaign in Resident Evil 6. A single player experience, Ada’s campaign features unique missions and will provide her perspective on the bioterrorist outbreaks that threaten to wipe out the world’s population. Ada Wong’s campaign becomes available once players have completed the campaigns for Leon, Chris and Jake. 
For those who want to experience the action as a zombie, J’avo or other C-virus mutation then the all new online mode Agent Hunt delivers. As a ‘hunter’ players will be able to infiltrate other players’ sessions with the aim of eliminating the human characters. As a hunter, players will have access to the unique movements and attacks of each of the enemies, including those of the various J’avo transformations. 
So how does Agent Hunt Mode work?
  • Complete the main campaigns for either Leon, Chris or Jake to then unlock the Agent Hunt stages for each of those respective campaigns.  
  • When creating an RE6 gameplay session a player has the option to allow/not allow Agent Hunt. 
  • When a hunter searches for a session to join they will see whether or not other players from around the world want to allow hunters into their game. 
  • The hunter then picks another player’s session to join and jumps into that session.
  • (Please note only certain stages will be available for Agent Hunt sessions.) 
  • The agent side can be either a single human player with an AI partner, or two human players in co-op mode. Up to two separate hunters can join an Agent Hunt session. When a hunter dies they respawn in the same session as a different random enemy from that area. 
  • If the hunter eliminates the agent then they will be taken to a ‘hunt successful’ results screen where they can join another session if they wish. 
  • If the agent is eliminated then their game session will end exactly as if they had been playing a standard game session with CPU enemies. 
  • If the hunter quits the session then the agent’s game continues as normal with all AI enemies.

Juan Of The Dead (2011) - DVD Release Details

The DVD hits store shelves on 14 August. For more details on the film, visit the official website.
When Havana begins to fill up with zombies, two friends hatch a plan to launch a zombie extermination service after their picturesque island is overrun by the living dead in this satirical horror film from director Alejandro Brugués (Personal Belongings). Fast, fun and hilarious, JUAN OF THE DEAD, gives a decidedly latin touch to the zombie genre, along with a winking nod to the zom-com hit, Shaun of the Dead. 
It's the anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, and as the hungry undead make an unwelcomed appearance, best friends Juan (Alexis Días de Villegas) and Lázardo (Jorge Molina) decide to parlay their skills for dispatching zombies into a professional career. "Juan of the dead killed their loved ones" is their slogan, and their mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them ... for a price. As the government attempts to maintain public order by blaming the fracas on Americans who they claim are attempting to topple the current regime, Juan and Lazardo rally the troops, gather their weapons, and prepare to make a killing by ridding Cuba of zombies one shambling, flesh-eating corpse at a time! 
Blending comedy, horror and the walking dead into a smooth, politically acute satire, JUAN OF THE DEAD -- the first to be shot in post-revolution Cuba without the financial support of the Cuban government -- is Presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
Special features include:
  • Behind-the-scenes featurette
  • Deleted scenes
  • Interviews
