The world is ending and we’re all moments away from being in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. OK, not really. But you might think that was the case if you watched the trailer for The Girl with All the Gifts, a new movie based on the 2014 novel by M.R. Carey. While the film came out in England last September, it was just released in the U.S. and is in theaters now. And after watching this trailer, we were definitely ready for this zombie tale to scare our pants off: The Girl with All the Gifts tells the story of a world ravaged by a fungus that turns people into “hungries,” or, mindless flesh-eating zombies. But a few hybrid…

AMC’s The Walking Dead: Who Should Make it Out Alive?

in Fiction by

Warning – Major Spoilers for Season 6 of The Walking Dead Watching The Walking Dead is always a stressful experience.

He probably almost had his arm chewed off just to get it, not to mention that those food runs they’re constantly making are dangerous and produce nothing but boring processed foods. They probably should have just been making jerky all along. I’m not sure how they spent their time pre-zombie apocalypse, but if they were smart, they could get ahead of the game by churning out sweet and salty, perfectly-preserved meats. Now that AMC’s spin-off, Fear the…

WIN: The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse

in Non-Fiction by

Let’s face it: the zombie apocalypse (or “zpoc”, as it’s often referred to by survivalists) isn’t going to be easy. Whether you’re “bugging out” (abandoning your home to forage for food and shelter) or “bugging in” (fortifying a place to hide until the whole thing blows over), pretty much all of your time is going to be spent either hiding from or fighting off walkers, all of whom are trying to make you their next meal. But what are you going to eat? You’re still going to need food yourself, and getting it is going to be far more difficult than simply running down to the neighborhood 7-11. “In fact,” writes author Lauren Wilson, “if you ever see your local…
