Another great show stuffed full of zombie death and destruction. Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 Blu-ray and DVD were released this week, and Strangeland sent in his review and rant for your enjoyment. Brian . . . from elsewhere talks about Return of the Living Dead Part 3 (1993), and Misfitboy continues talking about Romero-related zombie films with his review of Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006). I talk about the fairly new release, Carriers (2009), and then continue my discussion of Lucio Fulci’s zombie movies by talking about City of the Living Dead (1980). CarnageCake also sent in a great audio review for City. And Brian in Colorado takes care of this week’s beer review — one you’ll never forget.

In a tribute to Z.A. Recht, I replay the interview I held with him at Horror Realm this year.

Things get crazy this week, as they tend to do this close to the holidays. First of all, I’ll tell you why Nick Tallo is a sad old man who treats his fans like shit. Then we’ll be hearing a lot of fun thoughts from CarnageCake, and beer reviews from Alan and Brian in Colorado. Misfitboy continues his Romero reviews with Day of the Dead (1985), and I review Mulberry Street (2006), I’ll See You in My Dreams (2003), and Plague (2009).
