While not a zombie aficionado, I want to hug DeadVida and Dread Sockett for creating RIGOR MORTIS. In the Introduction, the editors lament the watering down of zombies due to widespread appeal. It’s true. When browsing Borders, I saw at least five zombiecentered zombiecentered craft books, including Zombie Felties. (I’m sorry, but they’re ADORABLE!!)
In this issue, you will find a passionate discussion of the evolution of monsters in movies (although the 1950’s alien-inspired monsters are not included, probably because they’re a subgenre onto themselves), a thorough description of Nazi zombies, and articulate, in-depth reviews of zombie books and movies. I particularly enjoyed the top ten list of sexiest monsters (damn right, the Bride of Frankenstein was hot). Highly recommended.
