Kill Time Until “The Suicide King” Airs – Make Yourself All Kinds Of Zombie On The New Walking Dead App!

I usually never do these kinds of things, mainly because I’m not that into seeing what I’d look like if I died horribly. However, AMC really stepped on their game, added tons of options, and Horror Boom heartily endorses it.  There’s a TON of fun options.

Impale yourself with a weapon, for instance (and this is one of the tamer ones)!

Impale yourself with a weapon, for instance (and this is one of the tamer ones)!

Including the examples below, you can change the tint (which you can see is more interesting than it sounds), pick over 20 gross zombie mouths, over 20 types of eye (including the Evil Dead-like look (see below), a ton of props, varying from a sad-looking doll to hold to huge chunks of meat held up to ‘your’ rotten mouth, an arrow in your head, and more. Then you have a bunch of different foregrounds and backgrounds – chain-link fence, bars  (see below), glass with bullets and bloodstains (my personal favorite), and lots more. You don’t have to plaster it up where everyone can see if you don’t want to, just download it (kind of like the “Mad Men-Yourself” game AMC has).

Here’s the link to give it a try yourself...   the official name of the App is “Dead Yourself”!

And find all things officially The Walking Dead (on AMC) on the main page for it, here!

The Man Behind Nina Medieros And Mama- Javier Botet Interview (Shock Till You Drop Exclusive, 2009-[REC] and [REC]2 Spoilers)

On the second [REC 2], I had just a few scratches. I didn’t have a real hammer. When I have a real hammer, no one comes near me.

-Javier Botet, on swinging a hammer around in the dark on a movie set

We’re still having trouble digging up a more recent interview with the man behind the monster mother in “Mama” and the [REC] series, so until then, Shock Till You Drop put up a great one you can check out, written by Ryan Turek.

HOWEVER! If you haven’t seen [REC] and [REC 2], you really, really should see them and then read this. There’s not a ton of spoilers for REC 2, but… oh, just see them, unless you don’t like extremely frightening movies. Either way, just avoid Quarantine  like, pardon the phrasing, the plague. We love Botet’s comments on the U.S. remake and agree 100% with everything he says– the same reasons Quarantine  pissed us off. OK, you get the idea. To read the interview, click on the big red link below…

Exclusive Interview: Rec & Rec 2’s Javier Botet –  Shock Till You Drop.

 

According to the interview, he was offered to reprise his role in the U.S. remake, though it would be “The Thin Infected Man” instead of “La Niña De Medieros”. The timing didn’t work out and the part went to Doug Jones instead. Talented as Jones is, no-one else could be as effective in the role …not even close. We saw Quarantine  in the theater and watched [REC]  at home on TV, in the daytime, and STILL had to open the curtains and turn the lights on halfway through. It’s not just Botet (though the movie would not be as memorable and nightmarish without him, and he’s a great, perfect show-stopper), the entire movie [REC] is fucking terrifying; by the time it roars to the end credits, you’ll probably be hugging your knees.

Enjoy the interview! The below is one of two BTS set photos we like to look at to lighten us up when we start to think about [REC] too close to bedtime…

Heh!

Heh!
