Medium ‘Night of the Living Dead – Bite Me’ Episode airs Friday, 900pm

SciFiWire has it, sounds awesome. We love the show, our previous posts on Medium here.

…Medium is planning one of the more amusing Halloween episodes we’ve come across, a TV mash-up with Night of the Living Dead. The episode is (also amusingly) called “Bite Me” and runs Friday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m.

“We literally insert Allison into the 1968 George Romero movie Night of the Living Dead,” said Medium creator and executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. Of course, there’s also a mystery to be solved in her waking world, involving a missing funeral director.

'Bite Me' airs Fri., Oct. 30th at 900pm on CBS

Caron said the idea of putting a character from one of his series into an old movie has been kicking around for 20 years. “Actually I was going to do it on Moonlighting years ago. We were going to do it with an AIP movie. I think it was Godzilla vs. Mothra.” (Now, that’s an episode we would have watched!)…

…”Craig and I thought it sounded like a fun idea, but we had to find the right film,” said Doherty. “We did a search for public-domain films and realized that Night of the Living Dead was public domain. It was really amazing and perfect. Craig and I are huge zombie movie fans. … We also thought it was perfect for a Halloween episode.”

To provide some sense of jeopardy for the dream, the writers decided to do something they haven’t done before on Medium, where Allison begins to suffer real physical damage from her adventures into the world of black and white. “You have to be as worried about Allison as you would be if this were her waking life. So a zombie bite in the dream will follow her out into her waking life.”….

Update: Interview with the ‘real’ Allison DuBois after the break:

Georges are colliding, hopefully with spectacular results!!! Courtesy of Fidgit:

(…)It’s a tie-in to the horror-themed Star Wars novel Death Troopers, which will be published in mid-October ….And in case you’re wondering just what the deal is with Death Troopers, it’s about a prison barge that finds a derelict Star Destroyer full of zombies. No joke.

ABOUT THIS BOOK

When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

And death is only the beginning.

The Purge’s half-dozen survivors–two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

What would a marriage between George Romero and Jane Austen produce? ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

Well, a really new spin on a much redone classic. I mean every other meme has been done on P & P after all…The review is sadly a pan, but hey still a great gag gift, I would pay to see the film :0)

pridezombies-thumb-300x425-15965SciFiWire Book Review:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Quirk Books, $12.95), (MiM here-  available on Amazon for $7.12), credited to Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith, presents the plot and much of the text from from the classic novel, with the addition of ambulatory rotting corpses in search of living people to devour. The alteration leaves the original surprisingly intact, altering some of the referents and dialogue and adding violent encounters to present a landscape under siege from the living dead.

…Elizabeth, the toughest and fairest of them all, can be followed both taking an intense dislike to Mr. Darcy and tossing a lit flame into a gathering of oil-soaked zombies, while muttering dialogue that serves as hybrid between Romero-movie one-liners and feminine sass. “Let them burn,” she snarls. “Let them have a taste of eternity.”…
