Zombies are one of the defining characters in horror, alongside vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein monsters. In the post-The Walking Dead world, writers and filmmakers have tried with various levels of success to create something new and original from a sub genre that can often produce B-level dreck. My favorite film of 2016 was South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan. Just when I thought I had seen it all from zombies, I watched The Girl With All the Gifts, just released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The film is written by Mike (M.R.) Carey who also penned the novel in 2014.

  |  

The BBC have release a couple of clips in advance of the reappearance of Doctor Who for the second part of Series 7.

Of the trailer, fans can expect to see their first glimpse of the new reimagined Ice Warriors from the classic series as they come back to face Matt Smith‘s incarnation of the Doctor, as well as some more tantalizing teasing about the mysteries surrounding new companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman).

‘Doctor Who’ Returns This Spring, But What Happens After Series 7 Ends?
  |  

It took me a little while to write this, because I was so electrified at the news that I was bouncing around the room in excitement. I think the fans call that a “squee moment.” But here it is, Whovians: The BBC has announced that Series 7 of Doctor Who will resume on TV screens on Easter weekend, beginning Saturday, March 30, 2013.

The second portion of Series 7 will pick up where The Snowmen Christmas Special left off, in which the Doctor (Matt Smith>) begins his quest to find Clara Oswin Oswald (>Jenna-Louise Coleman>) and unravel the answers behind this different and enigmatic companion. Who is she? Is she a Dalek Person Thingy? Is she split up across space and time? Is she secretly a villain of the Doctor to take revenge upon him for the fans due to the Sixth Doctor’s fashion sense? At this moment, I honestly couldn’t even begin to guess – showrunner Steven Moffat has me "Moffucked" over this one!
