I don’t know how or why it took so long for Uwe Boll to jump on the zombie gravy train, but he’s certainly on it now — here’s a trailer for his newest flick, Zombie Massacre. I don’t want to rock your world, but it might not be a cinematic masterpiece, possibly partially because Boll seems to have a very all-inclusive interpretation of “zombies” (and you can see in the video’s still above). These guys look more like monsters than the undead, and the only make-up and prosthetics they seem to have are located on their heads. Really, it would still be pretty benign except for the lady wielding the samurai sword. DAMMIT, BOLL, YOU’RE MAKING MICHONNE LOOK BAD. NOT COOL, DUDE.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
