Interview: Dave Campfield and Paul Chomicki (Caesar & Otto’s Deadly Xmas)

It’s been almost a year and a half since I first saw Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas and it finally finds its way to home video on November 19. It’s a fun mix of horror and comedy that pays homage to classic … Continue reading

Top 10 Hottest Sexiest Female Zombies

hottest-zombiefemales

It’s hard to phantom how many zombie films have been released over the years. Add to that the resurrected interest zombie films have played in the 21st century. Take that 1 step further with the trend of “including” hot ladies as strippers-turned-zombies giving the imagery of the undead a bit of a makeover (usually a nasty faced vixen with popping breasts and hot bod combo). Even though these slimy, flesh eating denizens of the un-living … Continue reading

Screaming-in-High-Heels-2011-movie-2
