Zomblogalypse

June 10, 2010

I’m going to fill something of a blog gap with a (well-deserved) plug. I could have merely forwarded links to this on popular social networking sites or via the old-school method of e-mail but things have been quiet around here lately and I need to get my arse in gear.


A little over one year ago a recently acquired friend of mine here in Korea informed me that she was involved in a film project with some of her friends from university back home (home being York in the UK). The project was Zomblogalypse , an ongoing zom-com* web series fashioned in the finest traditions of guerrilla filmmaking. Thanks in no small part to the dedication of its creators; the series appears to becoming increasingly successful with a third season currently underway and an expanding cult of fans. It may sound biased for me to lavish praise on this series, given that I’m personally acquainted with one of the major players, but I don’t give a shit. Zomblogalypse has plenty of moments of pitch-perfect fanboy comedy and an abundance of gruesome charm. It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to take a cheese grater to your own face and stumble around afterwards in the hope that you get discovered to play a zombie in one of the episodes. They have a new character that’s a partial homage to Tank Girl, fer chrissakes! That’s automatically cool as fuck.

Here is the trailer covering seasons 1 & 2 –

(*That’s “zombie comedy” for the uninitiated.)

  1. This is really cool! I love the humor so far.

    re: A zombie stealing their car

    “I can’t believe this isn’t the first time this has happened!”

    You’ve just nabbed them another viewer.


  2. I love the way you can watch the whole thing snowballing from some idea that a few folk threw together in a flat to something that all their friends and the wider community begin to get involved in.

    The season 1 finale (and much of the second season), being a love letter to York, is also something of a joy to behold.
