This looks pretty cool. 17 days to go.
There isn’t much Vampire media that I spend time on as it’s mostly all been done before and wasn’t that great anyway; post Stoker and Twins of Evils of cause…. Let the right one in…. Trouble Every Day…. Near Dark… but thats about it really yes? But True Blood is scorching and original, fresh and exciting. This just gets better every year. Here’s to series 6!!
…. was Vamp good? Watched it so long ago, seems like a dream… Grace Jones as a Vampire?!:)
Really though… is there any other great Vampire films, books or TV?
New offering from BBC Three… Zombie tale of teens in the UK. Will this be fresh? Original? Entertaining? Time will tell.

Well look at this… another Zombie short, this time from Brisbane and Maleny Australia, written, directed and produced by Joshua Long. They are after support to make a feature so give it a look and lets get the social virus airborne.
Bruce must survive an airborne virus turning everyone into maniacs and an army militia hell bent on genocide. His only friend is his AXE… Then the dead start to rise.
Must be something in the water today. First i get a look at 2 Hours, the independent Zombie Short but next up, Death Springs: a beautifully illustrated online graphic comic which explores the WildWest vs Zombie scenario. Check it out and give it some support.
Brady Sullivan is the writer and co-creator of Death Springs. ‘It’s an homage to a great cover to an old Western ongoing called “Cowboy Action” published by Atlas Comics (yep, a little company that got re-named Marvel Comics) with a zombie twist. Hmm…maybe I should have just named this comic “Cowboy Zombie Action.’
Death Springs is an absolutely free webcomic, updated with a new page every Thursday.
