Mail Order Zombie #193 - Remains, Ultimate Zombie Feast, I Heart Monster Movies, Zombies & Werewolves & Lovecraft OH MY!
Brother D survived his triple-booked weekend and he's here in episode #193 of Mail Order Zombie to talk about it! He attended the world premiere of I Heart Monster Movies (dir. Tyler Benjamin), went Howl Con (the first annual werewolf convention), and watched a handful of short movies at Zompire, the Undead Film Festival. When he wasn't watching movies and hanging out with werewolf enthusiasts, he also reviewed the 2012 zombie movie Remains (dir. Colin Theys) and the Monster Pictures' compilation release Ultimate Zombie Feast. Need-a-Nickname Scott brings the latest and greatest in zombie news with his Zombie Beat, while Jimmy and Eric from Galactic Gaming News has zombie video game news. Throughout this episode, you'll hear the entries from the listeners trying to win the drawing for the book The Cabin in the Woods: The Official Visual Companion, and, of course, Miss Bren will help round out the show in the Feedback Discussion. Other things to listen for in this episode: a list of important werewolf films throughout the history of cinema, a zombie . . . er . . . living impaired running for political office, an Easter Egg, some real talk about RA, and the startling revelation that there might be something out there that makes Brother D feel pretty.

After YEARS of being completely honest with the podosphere at large about his feelings regarding Joss Whedon, Brother D FINALLY watched The Cabin in the Woods (dir. Drew Goddard). Does it change his world? Does it make him a Whedonite? Does Miss Bren join him in watching the movie? You'll have to listen to Episode 192 of Mail Order Zombie to find out. When he wasn't watching The Cabin in the Woods, D interviewed Gwen Callahan, one of the forces behind this year's Zompire vs. The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival (October 12-14). During the interview, you'll find out what movies are playing that weekend and which movie will be turned into a drinking game. We return to Silent Death's Bunker for further thoughts about the television series "Revolution" (and a theory behind why Milla Jovovich won't return Need-a-Nickname Scott's phone calls); Jimmy and Eric from Galactic Gaming News give us the latest in zombie videogame news; we read some emails and listen to a voicemail in the Feedback Discussion; and there's a contest announced SOMEWHERE in this episode . . . but telling you where or when would be spoiling the surprise. While this is a SPOILER-heavy episode, we aren't going to spoil THAT!
