A long time ago in a land far, far away, a bunch of college guys created a goofy video about a group of friends playing Dungeons and Dragons.  It would be called The Gamers.

Fast forward to 2008, Dead Gentlemen Productions (Demon Hunters, Wranglers of Death, JourneyQuest) put out another video about the fun loving gamers called The Gamers: Dorkness Rising.  And now, in 2012, together with Zombie Orpheus Entertainment, the Dead Gentlemen Productions are ready to create a third installment into The Gamers franchise called Hands of Fate.

It’s on Kickstarter.  Buy a package and support this viral, goofy, parody of table top gamers!

Go on, do it! I am!

I just caught the trailer for the new 3 Musketeers movie and I’m hoping that the rest of the movie is just as good as that trailer.

From the 2 minutes I caught airships, sword fights, a smoking hot assassin chick (Milla Jovovich), and cool costumes.  Lets hope that this lives up to expectations! I think I’ll be hitting 3 Musketeers in the theaters in a few weeks to check it out!

Who doesn’t love zombies? Especially when you have a zombie in a penguin suit!

This little gem of a zombie film started out as an idea for a Halloween costume, but ended up as a viral seven minute clip about the escapades of a zombie from the time he woke up after being bitten to the point where he’s killed by humans.  The genius behind Zombie in a Penguin Suit is Chris Russell, a relatively young director and writer who also worked on a web series called Blood Light.

What does this gamer girl think of the film? Brilliance! The song, Mara’s Lullaby (by Marc Mellits and performed by Real Quiet) completely set the tone for ZIAPS.  This composition really tugged at my heartstrings in the beginning, I’ve got to say it’s pretty rare that I ever feel sorry for a zombie.  I much rather see them taken out with a flame thrower or chain saw.  But when you watch that zombie come back to life, sit up and look down at the other zombie, it’s almost sad.

What I also found intriguing is how the calm and relaxing score didn’t incite the normal “yea, get them” reaction when I see people killing zombies in a movie.  It’s almost a zen zombie flick, if there’s such a thing.

I won’t ruin the end so you can watch it yourself if you haven’t already.  I’ve got to say, I’ve yet to find someone I’ve shared it with that doesn’t like it!

Here’s Zombie in a Penguin Suit for your viewing pleasure:
