In the words of a very metal friend of mine, “HOLY SMOKES!”. Also, if you have just eaten, plan on eating soon, or are eating now, do not watch this trailer. If you do, it’s whatever happens to you isn’t my fault. But if you do watch it, look for our pal Lemmy Kilmister, who plays the part of ‘President Lemmy’ in this incredibly NSFW/NSFL trailer for The Return to the Class of Nuke ‘Em High, Parts I and II. The movie poster is also very metal…
Laugh, puke, or cry all you want, this latest eyeball assault from Troma will premiere at Cannes in May, 2013. All hail President Lemmy!
I’ve been a huge fan of “horror photographer” Joshua Hoffine since this blog started over five years ago. As he says himself in the video above, you might not know his name, but it’s a safe bet that you have seen his photographs. If not, let me help you not sleep tonight…
Right now, Hoffine is working on his most ambitious project to date. A zombie-themed photograph called ‘Last Stand’. The photograph will depict a families last moments before they are overrun by the undead. Hoffine’s photos read like mini-movies, so in true horror addict style, the father in Hoffine’s photo will be played by PHANTASM’s A. Michael Baldwin.
As this project is a huge undertaking, Hoffine has set up a Kickstarter page to help fund the project. The actors and participants are donating their services for free, so all donations will help pay for the materials that Hoffine will need to make this photograph the thing of your upcoming nightmares. As a lover of all things Hoffine and zombies, I’m pitching in. And I hope you can too.
Norwegian zombie commercial will not be seen in Norway. But you can see it here.
Last weekend, Norwegian sporting goods company XXL, aired a zombie themed commercial during a popular prime time Talent show on Senkveld TV2. The commercial, which you can watch above, starts off with the a horde of zombies invading a sparkly suburban setting, terrorizing the milkman, a kid on a scooter, and a chick in a bikini. Then things get real when random athletes appear on the scene, and a brutal showdown involving golf balls, fishing hooks, baseball bats, and any other type of athletic equipment along with their owners, begins.
In a not-so-surprising turn of events after the commercial aired, Norwegians took to their Twitter and Facebook pages to attack the ad for it’s gruesome content.
Cruel advertisement you have!! What the heck is the point in that???? Shame on you and be respectful to remove it immediately!! If at least not like to be a customer of you now!! Fy!! ”
“I would like to give you feedback on a stupid and provocative advertising that goes on television these days. It is completely unacceptable! Hardly intended for children 9 years as my son. “
Shitty translation aside, if your commercial features zombies losing their limbs due to a bad golf swing, it’s probably not a great idea to air it when impressionable Norwegian children are still awake listening to their black metal records. Of course, all this really means is that XXL’s commercial is one of the greatest advertizing achievements by anyone, ever. And it makes me want to play golf. And I hate golf. Sadly, XXL has since pulled the ad, saying that they were caught off guard by the complaints they received. But what do you think? Let’s see how CB.com readers feel about this Norwegian zombie controversy.

If you can think it, somebody has either drawn it, wrote about it, or tattooed it on their skin. And Zombie Johnny Cash tattoo’s, are no exception. Although in some cases as you will see, it’s not always a thing of undead beauty. If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know I love two things, Johnny Cash, and tattoos. So why not bring two things together in the spirit of Halloween?
I’m not usually a fan of the type of tattoo by artist Allen Spurlock (above), but clearly Spurlock and his lucky ink recipient nailed the perfect combination of creepy and Cash.
This cartoon-y Zombie Cash is by Atlanta based tattoo artist Kurt Fagerland. You can see more of Fagerland’s excellent ink via his Tumblr.

Black and White Zombie Cash tattoo. by Bay City Tattoos.
Well, as you can tell, we’ve reached questionable tattoo territory with the black and white Zombie Cash tattoo above. First of all, Johnny’s ciggy-holding hand is floating. After staring at that for a while, I get a bit dizzy looking into his wonky eyes. But mostly it’s Johnny’s GIANT THUMB that’s throwing me off the tattoo trail with this piece (allegedly done at Bay City Tattoos in Texas).
