31 Days of Horror: Xombie: Dead on Arrival

Day two pick for the 31 Days of Horror challenge--Xombie: Dead on Arrival. A zombie plague has wiped out most of the human race. Zoe, a human girl, washes up on shore looking for her family unsure of how she got there. She wanders into a graveyard where she is rescued by Dirge, a sentient zombie (called xombie), who makes it his mission to take her to the nearest human colony.

This movie was broken up into many smaller "chapters" (around 3 minutes or so) that make up the whole movie. Even though it was close to an hour long, the way it was split up made it feel much quicker. I'm not sure if this was featured somewhere on a site or something in episodes, but I'm thinking it probably was.

Interesting concept for a series, though. I'm sure there probably are books about zombies who have retained their consciousness, but I haven't read any of them. I read there was a comic based on this now, and I will definitely be on the look out for it.

Also, this one gets points for using E.S. Posthumus' Pompeii in one of the fight scenes! I love that song!


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.

I don't think this quite captures the complexity of bullying and suicide, and some of the issues that Hannah started facing toward the end of the novel really seemed to detract even more from the feelings she was going through by having ...
