We're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question, so get your answer in before next week's episode! Be heard on the show - call the voicemail at 206-202-2505!
012 04/17/2008 The show runs a bit longer than normal this week due to all of your emails and Zombie Aptitude Test answers, so buckle in and buckle down for Episode 12 of Mail Order Zombie! This week, two more movies receive their due headshots - Raiders of the Damned and The Stink of Flesh. The Zombie Beat includes more lists (Best Horror Comedies, Best 'Eye Poppers', etc.) and other zombie sightings, and a new ZAT question is presented to the masses.
013 04/24/2008 This week's episode is filled to the zombie gills! Two 2007 DVD releases are lined up for reviews this week as we look at Evil and Dawn of the Living Dead. Sandwiched between these reviews is the first ever Mail Order Zombie interview. Andrew Migliore spent some time with us to talk about the upcoming Zompire: The Undead Film Festival. Also we take a bite out of all the feedback we received this past week (we love it!), and Matt's Zombie Aptitude Test question is still open for answers. You can always call into the show at 206-202-2505, or email us at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com.
014 05/01/2008 Paura: Lucio Fulci Remembered Volume 1, Fan of the Dead and Song of the Dead are the three very independent movies being reviewed this week on Mail Order Zombie. Bren' joins as for y'all's Feedback, and in this week's Zombie Aptitude Test, we answer the question: Who would win in a fight - Bub the Zombie or Bud the C.H.U.D.? There are plenty of Zombie Sightings across the podosphere, and the Zombie News is thick with hot undead action. Also this week: the first ever Mail Order Zombie contest! Call the show at 206-202-2505 or email us at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com.
015 05/08/2008 Bren sits down to watch another zombie movie this week - this time around, Shaun of the Dead made its way into the Mail Order Zombie DVD player. After that, Brother D checked out Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker! on his own. The Zombie Beat is a little light this week, but we still check out the news and sightings, and the contest for the Evil DVD and Zombie Chicken mini-comic is still running until next Wednesday, May 14, 2008. Bren' lends her voice to reading your emails, and we respond to your voicemails as well. Check it out!
016 05/15/2008 n/a This past Friday and Saturday night, Brother D spent his evenings at the Third Annual Zompire, The Undead Film Festival. Three feature films and several short movies later, he reports on the zombie offerings and includes words and thoughts from other festival goers as well. We'd never skip the Zombie Beat, and Brother D actually gets excited about something Richard Rubinstein might be putting together. Bren' drops in to go over the week's feedback, and two winners are drawn from the correct submissions to the contest for the Evil DVD and Chicken Zombie mini-comic. What was the correct answer to the question, "What will be so special about Episode 25 of Mail Order Zombie?" Listen to this episode to find out! Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at 206-202-2505.
017 05/22/2008 There are three reviews lined up this week on Mail Order Zombie. The zombie flicks Severed: Forest of the Dead and Feeding the Masses are lined up and waiting for their headshots, and the CD release of the soundtrack from The Dead Next Door is waiting in the wings. Then take a hit from a rather light bit of Zombie Beat this week (remember, you can always submit your own news and announcements!), and, as always, Bren, aka Sister B, drops by to go over the weekly feedback (where Brother D gets a tiny bit of good natured schooling from one of the listeners!). We're still accepting answers to the current Zombie Aptitude Test question as well. Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at 206-202-2505.
018 05/29/2008 Imagine - not one, but two zombie movies with the word ZOMBIE, or some derivation thereof, in the title! In Episode 18 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D reviews Zombie Nation and Zombies Anonymous. A new contest launches this week, and we finally go over the Is-Frankenstein's-Monster-A-Zombie Zombie Aptitude Test question. Bren stops by to go over the show's feedback and calls Brother D shameful. Plus you can hear a spot of zombie news in the Zombie Beat! Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at 206-202-2505.
019 06/05/2008 For Episode 19, Brother D reviews two more zombie movies. From the past is 1993's Ozone, and from the future is Hell's Ground, hitting DVD later this month. The contest for the Zombie Comfort Guide is still going, and there are details for how you can win right here in this episode. Bren drops by for more Feedback, and weighs in herself on the previous Zombie Aptitude Test question. And the current ZAT question? We're still accepting submissions so get your answers in now! Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at 206-202-2505.
020 06/12/2008 Brother D pushes through the movies Zombie Christ and Dorm of the Dead in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie. Between the reviews, the winners of the Zombie Comfort Guide are announced, and then a new contest is started for even more zombie goodness from Mail Order Zombie Central. The answers to the current Zombie Aptitude Test question are reviewed, and Bren' adds her voice to the extra-long Feedback section of the show. We've got a spot of news in the Zombie Beat as well. Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com or call the voicemail line at 206-202-2505.
020.5 06/13/2008 n/a This is a quick correction to the Zombie Aptitude Test answer we went over in Episode 20. Sorry about the mix-up!
021 06/19/2008 Bren furthers her zombie movie education this week as she sits down with Brother D to watch The Serpent and the Rainbow, and then Brother D braves The Rising Dead on his own in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie. We're still accepting contest entries for the Undead Horrors DVD Pack from Tempe Video, as well as collecting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question. As always, Bren also lends her voice to y'all's Feedback, and Brother D gets unexpectedly musical in the middle of a listener's voicemail! Obviously, the show's anchored by the week's zombie news in this week's Zombie Beat. Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com or call the voicemail at 206-202-2505.
022 06/26/2008 Undead executioners and zombie party goers get some attention in Episode 22 of Mail Order Zombie when Brother D reviews Prison of the Dead and Die and Let Live. The winners of the contest for the Undead Horrors 5-DVD Pack from Tempe Video are announced, and the details of a grand-daddy of a new contest are spilled for all to hear. Bren swings by to help go over the current Zombie Aptitude Test question ("Where would you go in the event of a zombie uprising?") and y'all's Feeback, and of course we have a concentrated does of zombie-centric news in this week's Zombie Beat. Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com or leave a voicemail at 206-202-2505.
023 07/03/2008 This week in Episode 23, Brother D takes on the zombie movie Awaken the Dead. Bren joins him as they cuddle up to Will Smith and watch the Fresh Prince take on . . . some kind of zombie/vampire/CG-creatures in I Am Legend. The horror-celebrity-call-in-contest has been extended after an actor from a classic 80s zombie movie leaves Mail Order Zombie a voicemail. All the listener emails, messages and voicemails are reviewed on the show, and the film scores from a recent zombie movie franchise get a little attention this week. We're still accepting Zombie Aptitude Test answers. Also, some slight website changes are discussed, and an announcement about the new-and-official Mail Order Zombie message board drops. Email the show at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com or leave a message at 206-202-2505.
024 07/10/2008 Brother D and Bren rock 2 movie reviews, 1 alternate ending, a handful of ZAT answers, a couple random phone calls and the most Feedback EVER featured in a single episode of Mail Order Zombie this week! Episode 24 features a look at the movies Ghoul School and Ghost Lake, as well as the bonus disc of the I Am Legend 2-disc DVD release. The current Zombie Aptitude Test Question is answered, and even though Brother D postponed some of the current week's Feedback to Episode 26, there's nearly an hour of answering questions from the best listeners in the world in this MOZ installment. We've got a slightly beefier Zombie Beat this week as well.

Email us at MailOrderZombie@gmail.com or call us at 206-202-2505!
025 07/17/2008 This is it - the Night of the Living Dead Spectacular! Episode 25 of Mail Order Zombie is crammed full of reviews, discussions and special guest stars (a total of 21 guests make an appearance this week!). There have been several versions of the classic film since its original 1968 release, and Brother D tackles Tom Savini's Night of the Living Dead 1990 remake (with Desmond Reddick from Dread Media), John Russo's 30th Anniversary Edition and Night of the Living Dead 3D (with Brother D's brother Kevin) before finally sitting down with Bren to talk about the original movie. There is no Zombie Aptitude Test or Zombie Beat this week, but there is a new contest in which you might win a copy of TLA Releasing's Hell's Ground! This is a longer-than-normal episode, so settle down and strap in!
026 07/24/2008 n/a Brother D and Bren pull out all the unanswered Feedback from the past several weeks, and catch up on all our emails and voicemails. Unfortunately, the movie Outpost didn't show up at Mail Order Zombie Central as expected, so there's no movie review this week, but Brother D does review the score for an upcoming zombie film. The Zombie Aptitude Test is back with a new question, and there are two contests running right now, so listeners have an opportunity to win a handful of DVDs including the movie Hell's Ground, courtesy of TLA Releasing. The Zombie Beat makes its triumphant return with several interesting Zombie Sightings, as well as brief talk about Uncle Romero's potential next project!
027 07/31/2008 After the Episode 25 Extravaganza and catching our breath with Episode 26, we're getting back to basics with Episode 27 of Mail Order Zombie. The Headshot Reviews are back as Brother D watches Living Dead Lock Up and Outpost. Even though we're getting back to what passes for normal around MOZ Central, we're still going to bring in something new - Bren's Semi-Regular-Book-A-Palooza-Apocalyptic-Fiction-A-Go-Go (we really need a name for this segment!) makes its debut as she talks about David Moody's Autumn. We also have the small matter of finding out who won the Name-The-Mystery-Movie-Trailer Contest and get to awarding two winners with a copy of Hell's Ground courtesy of TLA Releasing. We've got a bit of Feedback to go over, and the current Zombie Aptitude Test question still needs your answers. There's also a bit of news in this week's Zombie Beat.
028 08/07/2008 The Living Dead Lock Up saga continues as Brother D reviews Living Dead Lock Up 2: March of the Dead in Episode 28 of Mail Order Zombie; the movie Dead Creatures will also get its headshots this week. The headshot count this week is low, but the number of news items in this week's Zombie Beat is high with zombie movie, game and theatre news. Bren stops by to take a bite out of the Listener Feedback, and we go over the current Zombie Aptitude Test answers before going over the next ZAT question (which was submitted by one of the listeners!). Also, Dave from the Cheap and Dirty Podcast has his own theory as to how the original Night of the Living Dead became the well-known and -loved classic that it is. (This week's show is a little lighter than normal, but next week we'll be back up to 100-minutes-or-so - I promise!)
029 08/14/2008 Y'all know the routine - this week in Episode 29 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D sits down with two more movies to review. The Zombie Chronicles takes it Headshots, and the Living Dead Lock Up saga comes to a close with Living Dead Lock Up 3: Siege of the Dead. In addition to reviewing Living Dead Lock Up 3, Brother D is also going to look back at the entire trilogy and offer a few thoughts on the viewing experience of these three no-budgeters. Bren pops in to go over everyone's Feedback where we hear from a special friend of the show who may or may not have had his hometown overrun with zombies. We're still taking answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question, but we start the show out with a solid dose of news in this week's Zombie Beat.
030 08/21/2008 The movies Return in Red and Cadaverella step up to get the Mail Order Zombie treatment in Episode 30 of Mail Order Zombie. Brother D delivers the movies' headshots, and then fires off a (friendly) shot of his own at a fellow podcaster over . . . running zombies. Another podcaster drunk dialed the show, and Bren and D address this voicemail, as well as all the other listener emails and voicemails that have made their way to Mail Order Zombie Central this past week. Also, a recent Mail Order Zombie contest winner sends in his thoughts on the movie he received as a prize for having a horror movie alum call into the show.
031 08/28/2008 We care about the children. That's not to say we want you to let your children listen to Episode 31 of Mail Order Zombie (Bren's got a potty mouth sometimes!), but we do want to help you decide if When Good Ghouls Go Bad is appropriate for your children. Additionally, Brother D wants to help you decide if Sabbath (part of the Mortuary of Madness 50 Movie Pack from Mill Creek Entertainment) is appropriate for your DVD player. You can also expect all the regular Mail Order Zombie features (The Zombie Beat, Listener Feedback and the Zombie Aptitude Test) this week as well. (And make sure you stick around for at the end of the show to hear what certain wiseacres/friends of the show went and did, thinking they were funny . . . grumble, grumble . . . !)
032 09/04/2008 American Zombie gets its headshots this week in Episode 32 of Mail Order Zombie. Bone Sickness was originally scheduled to appear this week as well, but unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances have forced us to push back this movie's review at least another week. Because we've had some Real Life Bumps, Bren and Brother D spend more time on Feedback this week more than anything else after the American Zombie review. Also, listeners will have a chance to win a DVD in another Mail Order Zombie contest!
033 09/11/2008 Two more movies, and a horror score gets a little Mail Order Zombie love this week in Episode 33 of Mail Order Zombie. Bone Sickness (originally scheduled to appear on Episode 32) finally gets its headshots, and Gangs of the Dead stands by it to take its hits as well. One of these movies almost made Brother D sick, and the other one gets a few mini-reviews from members of the Mail Order Zombie family. Brother D points his ears at Cliff Bradley's score from the film Undead, and in the second half of the episode, Bren stops by to discuss everyone's Feedback. There are two contests running right now, and the current Zombie Aptitude Test question is still open!
034 09/18/2008 Bren's Book-a-Review-Em-A-Pocalyptica-A-Palooza-A-Bang-Bang returns to Mail Order Zombie in Episode 34 this week when she reviews J. L. Bourne's Day By Day Armageddon, and we've got two movies lined up for their Headshots this week: Brother D examines 2003's Exhumed and the upcoming release Necroville. The winner of the American Zombie DVD contest is announced, and Bren jumps in for another Feedback Discussion. The answers to the current Zombie Aptitude Test question are finally revealed, and a new ZAT question is posed to the Mail Order Zombie Family as well.
035 09/25/2008 Episode 35 of Mail Order Zombie brings the goods with a review of Zombies! Zombies! Zombies!, but Brother D doesn't let this movie's headshots stop him. He cracks open the new book Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide by Glenn Kay, and he tracks down Geoff Bough from Revenant: The Premiere Zombie Magazine to talk about the 2008 Revenant Film Festival. (Thanks to Geoff for the interview!) A few Zombie Aptitude Test answers from the previous ZAT question slipped through the cracks last week, so Brother D goes over these, and Bren joins us for the weekly Feedback Discussion (and manages to sneak in a new contest right in the middle of everyone's emails and voicemails!).
036 10/02/2008 One DVD (The Vanguard), one CD (The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates) and one table top game (Humans!) get a little attention in Episode 36 of Mail Order Zombie (thanks to Lord Dward from Plan 9 From Cyberspace!). Not only do you get to hear these reviews, you also get to hear every ringtone Bren has on her cell phone as she proves just how popular she is when she's interrupted several times while reading y'all's Feedback this week. In addition to the Name-That-Zombie-Movie contest that launched last week, a new contest kicks off for a copy of one of the items reviewed this week, and we're still taking answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question.
037 10/09/2008 We didn't intend for Episode 37 to be so Feedback-heavy when we started, but we have so much great discussion-fodder, Bren and Brother D just couldn't help themselves. Before the Feedback Avalanche hits, though, Brother D sneaks in a review of Night of the Living Dorks, and a few members of the Mail Order Zombie Family members also sent in their thoughts of the movie as well. The contest for The Vanguard is still running, and we scour the interweb for zombie news and sightings in this week's Zombie Beat. And because it's his show and he said so, Brother D is extending the Zombie Aptitude Test question one more week, so you still have time to get your ZAT answers in. (Special thanks to Scott and Tracey from the Disney,Indiana Podcast for the Harry Manfredini audio!)
038 10/16/2008 n/a Brother D is doing his best to not become a zombie himself, so while he's fighting off the crud that has taken residence inside his nasal cavity and throat, Miss Bren steps up and runs the show! Both Brother D and Miss Bren were guests at the 2008 Revenant Film Festival, so you will hear a little bit from Brother D as he covers that event (with a special guest appearance by another Northwest podcaster!), and Miss Bren takes this opportunity to clear through the backlog of emails and voicemails here at MOZ Central. She also announces the winner of The Vanguard DVD contest, and announces the next Mail Order Zombie contest starting with this week's episode. The current Zombie Aptitude Test answers are revealed and a new ZAT question is posed to the Mail Order Zombie family. (And thanks to Corey Graham of The Midnight Podcast for sending in a recording that does nothing but further the Is-He-Or-Isn't-He? discussion!)
039 10/23/2008 Miss Bren rocked it last week, didn't she? She kept the show going and microphone warm, and now Brother D is back, firing on almost all cylinders and rocking Episode 39 of Mail Order Zombie. The review content is high this week: Miss Bren and Brother D review Episodes 2 and 3 of Zombie Hunters: City of the Dead, Dave from the Cheap and Dirty Podcast reviews the comic Dead Space, the movies Zombie Wars and Dance of the Dead get the Mail Order Zombie treatment, and four listeners submit reviews of their own as well! Answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test are still being collected, as are entries for the contest to win your own copy of the book Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide by Glenn Kay. Check it out!
039.5 10/24/2008 n/a The current Zombie Aptitude Test question was dropped from the mix in Episode 39, so Brother D puts it out there since the answers are due next week. Also, Amy from the Night of the Living Podcast is concerned for Brother D's soul. Despite her concern, he digs deep to find something special to review for Episode 40, the Halloween Episode. What's in store for Episode 40? Listen to find out . . .
040 10/30/2008 Another week, another episode of Mail Order Zombie! This week, Brother D pushes the limits and explores all new depths in zombie cinema when he reviews House of the Dead, House of the Dead 2: No Guts, No Glory and the Director's Cut of House of the Dead, the Funny version . . . all at once. To try to keep his sanity, he also (inspired by the award-nominated Outside the Cinema podcast) presents his Top 5 List of Best Zombie Movies to Play at Your Halloween Party (and then Bill from Outside the Cinema decides to drop by with a list of his own!), and if that's not enough to help keep Brother D straight, one of the MOZ Family helped out by calling in a quick review of a kinda-sorta zombie movie released by Full Moon a few years ago. Maybe that wasn't enough to keep Brother D level-headed because he does make a phone call this week (NOT to Netflix!) that may get him in trouble down the line! Miss Bren drops by for the weekly Feedback Discussion, and the answers to the current ZAT question are gone over before a new question is posed to the family. Also, we're still running that contest to give away one of three copies of the book Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide by Glenn Kay - listen to the episode to learn how you can win!
041 11/06/2008 In this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D tries to wash the taste of House of the Dead out of his mouth with two more DVD reviews. The DVD releases of Zombie Strippers and Hoodoo for Voodoo are reviewed this week, and Brother D and Miss Bren venture away from the TV screen for some theatrical kinda-sorta zombie action when they finally watch Quarantine and share their thoughts with the Mail Order Zombie family (pay attention - Brother D and Miss Bren disagree on a key point about Quarantine!). We finally announce some contest winners - three listeners will walk away from this episode of Mail Order Zombie with their own copies of Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide by Glenn Kay. Even though we had to record this week's Feedback Discussion earlier than normal, we have plenty of material to get through, and we've got all the other features and fun you've come to expect from Mail Order Zombie. Let's do it!
042 11/13/2008 A Mail Order Zombie first! A zombie moviemaker swings by for an interview when co-writer/co-director of The Zombie Diaries Michael Bartlett swings by for a chat with Brother D. We also discover that country music is truly evil when we review the movie Trailer Park of Terror and watch Trace Adkins play the devil! Our Feedback Discussion runs a bit longer than normal this week because we had so many birthday wishes from the Mail Order Zombie family to Miss Bren! Thanks for sending those along! The submitted answers to the current Zombie Aptitude Test questions are reviewed, and a new ZAT question is posed to the Family this week, and we have the week's zombie news in the Zombie Beat.
043 11/20/2008 Brother D uses the words "bunny rabbit" way too much this week in Episode 43 of Mail Order Zombie. A bunny rabbit makes its way through one of the three movies he reviews - The Forever Dead, Storm of the Dead and Dead Country. Two members of the Mail Order Zombie family contribute reviews of their own, bringing the review total to four-and-a-half (!) this week. In the middle of all these reviews, Brother D talks about how to get the most amount of movies for the least amount of money, and we launch a new contest in this episode! We have four copies of a 5-Headshot-rated movie to give away! Miss Bren also swings by for the weekly Feedback Discussion, and we're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question. Can you handle the bunny rabbit? Can you handle the zombies? Can you handle Episode 43?
044 11/27/2008 Two more movies and a video game get some attention this week in Episode 44 of Mail Order Zombie. Many, many moons ago, a member of the Mail Order Zombie Family asked Brother D about a movie he found in the discount bin at his local Wal-Mart. The movie? 2004's Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill. And this week, Brother D finally reviews it. And more recently, another MOZ Family member asked about the movie Rome Against Rome, so Brother D reviews this movie this week as well. A new contributor joins the family to review the videogame Left 4 Dead, and Miss Bren does her best to keep a straight face when she gets a series of strange phone calls while reading emails in this week's Feedback Discussion.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

045 12/04/2008 This week on Mail Order Zombie, the movie Day X steps up for its MOZ treatment, and instead of a second movie review, we review a comic. Miss Bren just read Volume 1 of The Walking Dead trade paperbacks, so she sits down with Brother D to talk about it (as well as sneaking in a few words about what she's read of Volume 2 so far!). The contest for The Zombie Diaries has come to an end, and the winners are announced, and because we like giving things away (and we have very generous members of the Mail Order Zombie Family who have hooked us up with such great swag!), we'll slip in the launch of a new contest this week, too! We go over the week's emails and voicemails in the weekly Feedback Discussion and add another country to the MOZ World Domination plans when we hear from a new listener in a country we've not heard from before. We also learn why Brother D has started carrying a screwdriver with him everywhere he goes.
045.5 12/05/2008 n/a We can't let a week go by without the weekly Zombie Beat!
046 12/11/2008 There are Headshots a'plenty in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie. Brother D takes a good and hard (and sometimes mean) look at the movies Zombiez, Catholic Ghoulgirls and Zombie Apocalypse before diving into this week's Feedback Discussion with Miss Bren. We'll also sneak in a few diary entries into the mix - Zombie Farmer submitted a few days' worth of journaling detailing how she would handle living in a zombie reality.

We're still taking accepting entries for the first four trades of The Walking Dead (plus t-shirt!) until December 15th.

Special thanks to everyone who called in to wish Brother D a happy birthday this week. At the time of Episode 46's recording, we'd received email greetings, a Disneyland recording from Need-a-Nickname Scott (from The Disney,Indiana Podcast), forum posts, Tweets, voicemails, an E-card and even a special message from one of the lead actors from an Uncle Romero classic!
047 12/18/2008 We lost track of how many headshots we gave out this week on Mail Order Zombie! Brother D reviews John Saxon's only turn in the director's chair when he takes a look at Zombie Death House, and then Miss Bren fires off some headshots of her own when she joins Brother D for a discussion of Dead Set. Mail Order Zombie Family members Jay and Mathew also send in reviews of their own (taking a look at Resident Evil: Degeneration and Waxwork II: Lost in Time respectively). But it's not just movie reviews this week - Billy Garberina, actor-director of the 4-Headshot-rated Necroville spends some time with Mail Order Zombie this week to talk about movie-making, why no-budgetters might be drawn to zombies and how you can't always trust the IMDB. The winners for the trade paperbacks of The Walking Dead are announced as well.
048 12/24/2008 n/a Happy Holidays, everyone! In Episode 48 of Mail Order Zombie, after Brother D hits the weekly zombie news and sightings in the Zombie Beat, he and Miss Bren catch up on Feedback that's been building up at MOZ Central over the past few weeks. In the midst of this Feedback Discussion special, Brother D announces a new contest for the Mail Order Zombie Family.

049 01/01/2009 While this episode might run a bit shorter than normal, we're still bringing you straight-to-DVD zombie movie reviews in what might very well be the first horror podcast of 2009 - Episode 49 of Mail Order Zombie. In this week's episode, Brother D reviews two more zombie movies: Hollywood Mortuary and Pulse 3. Before Miss Bren joins him for the weekly Feedback Discussion, she first sits down with Brother D to talk about Mail Order Zombie's 2008 achievements and 2009 goals. And courtesy of POPCinema, Mail Order Zombie is giving away 5 copies of the 4-Headshot-rated movie Necroville; details on how you can win one of these copies are in this episode.
050 01/08/2009 Brother D and Miss Bren are struggling through sore throats and congestion this week, but before they become zombies themselves, they drop a few more reviews in Episode 50 of Mail Order Zombie. Brother D braves the movies Rise of the Dead and Grave Mistake, and Miss Bren's Post Script (da-da-dum!) returns when she reviews the book Plague Year by Jeff Carlson. MOZ Family Member Zombie Farmer submits a few more entries from her diary describing her experience in a world in which the zombie apocalypse has already happened, and in the middle of all this, the winners of the Necroville DVD contest are announced. And you know what's back? The Zombie Aptitude Test, y'all! Solid.
051 01/15/2009 This episode of Mail Order Zombie goes to Europe when Brother D reviews the movies Demonic and Choking Hazard, and here's a word of warning - Miss Bren totally crashes the Choking Hazard review, and when she does, she and Brother D both spoil pretty much everything about Choking Hazard, so consider yourself warned! This week also marks the debut of a new segment from MOZ Family Member O'Day. Called O'Day's MOZ Survival Tips, this segment makes Mail Order Zombie no longer just entertaining, but it's educational now, too! The current Zombie Aptitude Test, or ZAT, is still open, and, as always, the backhalf of the show is devoted to this week's Feedback Discussion (and, yes, Spot - Brother D will take you to Zombie Town).
052 01/22/2009 It's the end of Year One here at Mail Order Zombie, and we're going to do what we always do - we've got zombie movies to review. This week, Brother D tries to review the zombie movies Flesh Freaks and Johnny Sunshine Maximum Violence. We've got a healthy dose of Feedback Discussion this week as well; Miss Bren joins Brother D to go over the weekly emails and voicemails. Also, the director of Grave Mistake, Shawn Darling, drops by to talk about making his own zombie movie, casting a a grocery store, and what magical things are coming up next for him. Because this is our 52nd week, though, we had to do something special this week, so your two co-hosts announce the official nominations for the 2008 Mail Order Zombie Dead Letter Awards. (The show does run a bit long this week due to the extra content. Next week, we'll be back down to around 1:45 . . . sorry!)
053 01/29/2009 This is the mark of the second year of Mail Order Zombie, and we're doing what we've done for the past 52 weeks - we're reviewing straight-to-DVD zombie movies. This week, Brother D throws some headshots at the movies Super Hell and Swamp Zombies. Between the two movie reviews, he'll take a critical look . . . er . . . listen to the John Harrison soundtrack from the Uncle Romero zombie film Day of the Dead. Later in the show, Miss Bren sits down behind the microphone to join Brother D for the weekly Feedback Discussion. And remember, this is the last week to submit your answer to the current Zombie Aptitude Test question!
054 02/05/2009 To celebrate Uncle Romero's birthday earlier this week, Mail Order Zombie brings another week of straight-to-DVD zombie movie reviews! Brother D reviews the movies Zombie Cheerleading Camp and Ritual, dispensing the Headshot reviews with glee! Mail Order Zombie Family Member Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, called in a review of 2008's Day of the Dead, and January's ZAT, or Zombie Aptitude Test, questions are revealed when Miss Bren drops by the show. During the backhalf of Episode 54, Miss Bren swings by again to help Brother D go over the week's Feedback Discussion.
055 02/12/2009 It's Civil War week here at Mail Order Zombie. Brother D reviews two Civil War movies when he casts his ever-critical eye on Grey Knight and Curse of the Cannibal Confederates. Miss Bren does double-duty this week - she not only helps with the week's Feedback Discussion, but she also stops by to discuss five Civil War-themed zombie short stories as well. We're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test. This episode did run a bit longer than we planned, so thanks for hanging in there with us!
056 02/19/2009 Mail Order Zombie goes Old West (sort of) and overseas with two more movie reviews this week - Brother D reviews the recently-released Dead Noon, and then Miss Bren joins him for a discussion of the South Korean movie The Guardpost. Because MOZ Central is gearing up for the 1st Annual Dead Letter Awards next week, instead of Brother D reviewing another straight-to-DVD zombie movie on his own like he normally would, some members of the Mail Order Zombie family have contributed material for this week's show. O'Day submits the second installment in his series of survival tips, and everyone's favorite living impaired family member Wayne Kotke conducts a phone interview with Timothy Mather, director of No. My Other Possessed Zombie Girlfriend. Busy for the awards show or not, Miss Bren and Brother D still have time to go over the voicemails and emails from the previous week for this episode's Feedback Discussion as well.
057 02/26/2009 n/a This is it! With the help of a few friends, Miss Bren and Brother D present the 1st Annual Mail Order Zombie Dead Letter Awards! The pre-show runs just over 30 minutes, and then Mail Order Zombie announces the best in zombie movies and media from 2008. Special awards are also presented, and three bands appear on the MOZ stage for this special occasion. Ten lucky voters/members of the Mail Order Zombie family also receive prizes in the form of the Dead Letter Awards Swag Bag!
058 03/05/2009 Mail Order Zombie is back in business after last week's Dead Letter Awards! Brother D dives into a review of the 2007 straight-to-DVD zombie movie Zombie Town directed by Damon Lemay before kicking off the month-long series March of the Zombi(e) with a critical look at the 1979 Fulci Film Zombi 2. The Hammer film The Plague of the Zombies makes its first official appearance on Mail Order Zombie, but not for a Headshot review, and Brother D is eager to talk about a very specific element of this movie. Mail Order Zombie Family Member Dr. J launches his own series on the show this week, and since it's a new month, a new Zombie Aptitude Test, or ZAT, question is posed to the listeners. This week's Feedback Discussion is super-sized, and Miss Bren joins Brother D to go over a number of emails and voicemails; in addition to the regulars, some new listeners and emailers join the party.
059 03/12/2009 March of the Zombi(e) continues this week when Brother D casts his ever-critical eye at 1988's Zombi 3, directed by Lucio Fulci and Bruno Mattei. Also, Otto; Or, Up With Dead People shambles up for its headshots this week, and Miss Bren drops by to help go over everyone's Zombie Aptitude Test answers from last month. She also comes back for the back half of the show for this week's Feedback Discussion to help Brother D talk about the one or two things that make him squirm the most. Due to circumstance beyond Mail Order Zombie's control, there is no Zombie Beat this week, but the show is still filled with all kinds of zombie goodness, so check it out!
060 03/19/2009 March of the Zombi(e) continues as Brother D reviews Zombie 4: After Death, directed by Clyde Anderson, aka Claudio Fragasso; but not before he reviews the new release Sick and the Dead, directed by Jordy Dickens and Brockton McKinney. This episode of Mail Order Zombie reviews more than just movies this week - Joe R. Lansdale's novella Dead in the West gets some attention, and an MOZ Family Member calls in a review of a kinda-sorta zombie short story as well. And as always, Miss Bren joins the show for the weekly Feedback Discussion.
061 03/26/2009 Another week, another episode of Mail Order Zombie. Episode 61 marks the end of March of the Zombi(e), which means Brother D will wrap up the franchise with a review of Zombie 5: Killing Birds, directed by Claudio Lattanzi and Joe D'Amato. Another MOZ Family Member - Jay Emmitt from the Obscure 80s Show - launches a new segment this week, and Brother D takes a moment to start talking about some changes coming for all things Mail Order Zombie. Miss Bren joins the show for the weekly Feedback Discussion, and watches as Brother D continues to squirm over eye trauma. (And special thanks to Miss Bren who handled most of the post-production for the Feedback segment!)
062 04/02/2009 After some dramatic-traumatic travel experiences, Miss Bren and Brother D made it back from HorrorHound Weekend, and are ready to talk all about it! It was an amazing experience, despite the travel trouble getting to and from the event, and since their attending HorrorHound Weekend would not have happened without the support of the listeners and the MOZ Family, they want to share! Additionally, two more movies are reviewed this week - Graveyard Alive and Dark New World get their Headshots this episode. Also, we hear back from some of the 2008 Dead Letter Award Winners, and April's Zombie Aptitude Test question is announced.
063 04/09/2009 Episode 063 of Mail Order Zombie is a bit longer than normal as Miss Bren and Brother D make it a point to get through the backlog of emails and voicemails in this week's Feedback Discussion, but Brother D can't let a week go by without two more movie reviews - the Ed Brisson short movie Graveyard and Doomed, directed by Michael Su, receive their headshots this week. The Zombie Beat returns to the show with Mail Order Zombie's top zombie news stories for the week, and last month's Zombie Aptitude Test question's answers are gone over in front of the class. The next installment of O'Day's Survival Tips gives us all even more information regarding how we might survive in the case of a real zombie apocalypse . . . or any other emergency, and stay tuned to the end of the show to hear a few more thoughts from the MOZ Family regarding the March 2009 HorrorHound Weekend, including thoughts from Slug!
064 04/16/2009 Miss Bren's Post Script is back in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie, and Brother D joins her as they look at two different zombie novels - Miss Bren reviews The Rising: Selected Scenes from the End of the World by Brian Keene, and Brother D reviews Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth-Grahame-Smith. As for this week's movie reviews, Brother D fires a few more Headshots when he looks at the movies Livelihood, directed by Ryan Graham, and Black Swarm, directed by David Winning (It goes without saying that Miss Bren will not be watching Black Swarm any time soon!) A decision is made regarding whether or not the Headshot rating scale should be changed, and answers are still being collected for this month's Zombie Aptitude Test.
065 04/23/2009 n/a Circumstances have led to this week's show being shorter than normal. As I've mentioned in a previous episode, my stepfather recently passed away, and his memorial is taking place in Cheyenne, WY, later this week. As Miss Bren and I will be flying from the Pacific Northwest to Colorado, and then drive from Colorado to Wyoming, and then driving/flying back again a few days later, we've not been able to produce a regular episode of Mail Order Zombie this week. Reviews of Beneath the Surface and Die-ner (Get It?) will appear next week, as will a review of the score to the upcoming zombie movie Deadlands 2: Trapped. Thanks for your support, and thanks for listening!
066 04/30/2009 Now THIS is Episode 66 of the podcast devoted to straight-to-DVD zombie movies and a little bit more - Mail Order Zombie. This week, Brother D reviews two movies - Beneath the Surface, directed by Blake Reigle, and Die-Ner (Get It?), directed by Patrick Horvath - and Miss Bren reviews the post-apocalyptic novel On the Beach by Nevil Shute. Also, Dr. J makes Brother D's skin crawl with a new installment of Med of the Dead, and the Gary Ugarek and Brian Wright score from the upcoming zombie movie Deadlands 2: Trapped gets a good listen when Brother D reviews it (before reviewing the movie Deadlands 2: Trapped next week in Episode 067).
067 05/07/2009 Episode 67 of Mail Order Zombie is packed and stacked with over 3 hours of zombie goodness! Brother D reviews the mockumentary The Zombeatles: All You Need is Brains, as well as the upcoming zombie feature Deadlands 2: Trapped. Gary Ugarek, the writer/director of Deadlands 2: Trapped also joins Brother D for an information-filled interview in which he discusses his zombie extra experiences on the set of two big budget zombie movies, his reasoning behind directing two independent zombie movies of his own, his thoughts on film music in zombie movies, and if you stick around to the end of the show, he'll even talk about . . . food(?). In Miss Bren's Post Script, she sits down with Brother D to talk about the Margaret Atwood post-apocalyptic/dystopian future novels The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake. Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, launches his new series, the ABCs of Zombies, and the answers from the April Zombie Aptitude are reviewed before the new monthly ZAT question is introduced for May. All this, plus a smattering of Feedback makes this episode of Mail Order Zombie one of the most content-heavy to date, so strap in and make sure you pack a lunch!
068 05/14/2009 It's Zombie Girl week here at Mail Order Zombie as Brother D and Miss Bren are reviewing the movies Pathogen, directed by Emily Hagins (this is the only zombie movie to be directed by a twelve-year-old girl); and Zombie Girl: The Movie, directed by Justin Johnson, Aaron Marshall and Erik Mauck (the documentary following the production of Pathogen). Brother D is also reviewing the Christopher Thomas score from Zombie Girl: The Movie. In Miss Bren's Post Script, Jake's Wake, written by John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow, gets a little attention, and Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, drops a few more ABCs of Zombies. We're still taking answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test as well. The backhalf of the show is devoted to the weekly Feedback Discussion, so you'll want to check that out for this week's emails and voicemails, as well as a slip of the tongue that has given Brother D a few interesting ideas for a t-shirt design (or not!)

(And remember, Brother D will be attending the Zompire Film Festival May 15-17 here in Portland, OR, where he's most excited about seeing Day of the Dead on the big screen! Check out that film festival at Zompire.com.)
069 05/21/2009 What better way to celebrate Episode 69 of Mail Order Zombie than to review the movies Erotic Nights of the Living Dead and Orgy of the Dead? That not enough for you? Miss Bren's Post Script tackles the naughty bits (and the non-naughty-bits) of the vampire/zombie novel Roses of Blood on Barbwire Vines. We don't spend the entire episode in the gutter; Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, shares another installment of the ABC's of Zombies, and there's a sneak preview (courtesy of Third Coast Zed) of some of the answers we've received so far for May's Zombie Aptitude Test. And did somebody say, "pickles?"
070 05/28/2009 Where can you go every May to watch zombie (and vampire) movies? Zompire: The Undead Film Festival. Where can you go to hear about the festival if you missed the event? Mail Order Zombie. In Episode 70 of MOZ, Brother D covers the event, reviewing some of the zombie movies shown (The Revenant and Morgue Story: Blood, Blowfish & Comics and a number of zombie short movies), interviewing filmmaker Kerry Prior, festival director Andrew Migliore and game designer Scott Glancy, and hanging with Mail Order Zombie Family Member O'Day. Additionally, Zombie Hunter Tony calls in a report from a local Zombie Prom. Zombie events aside, we can't let a week go by without a DVD or book review; Brother D reviews Zombiegeddon, directed by Chris Watson; and in Miss Bren's Post Script, David Wellington's Monster Island gets a little critical attention. You've got until next week to submit your answers to the current Zombie Aptitude Test which was inspired by the mockumentary The Zombeatles: All You Need is Brains, so get singing, y'all! The backhalf of the episode is set aside for the weekly Feedback Discussion, where not only do we talk about zombie movies and answer listener emails and voicemails, but Brother D questions . . . Canadian gangs? And Miss Bren finally puts her foot down; Brother D's zombie books have no place in the bathroom.
071 06/05/2009 Episode 71 of Mail Order Zombie is filled with pudding! And zombie movies! And a book! And undead karaoke? In this week's episode, Brother D reviews the zombie movie DVDs Dead Summer, directed by Eddie Benevich (courtesy of SRS Cinema), and the upcoming Destined to be Ingested, directed by Sofian Khan. And how often do you get to watch a straight-to-DVD zombie movie on the big screen? Brother D did just that at the World Premiere of John Bowker's Platoon of the Dead. He also interviewed the director as well as producer Joe Sherlock. In Miss Bren's Post Script, Miss Bren reviews the short novel Deadlands by Scott A. Johnson. Throughout the entire episode, the Zombie Aptitude Test submissions are reviewed (ah, THAT'S where the undead karaoke came from!), and a new ZAT question is laid out before the class (this ZAT question was suggested by MOZ Family Member Harold Jennett, whose work you can check out at http://www.mimescomic.com/). And if you listen closely, you might hear about a contest somewhere in the episode . . .Special thanks to everyone who submitted a ZAT answer last month. Y'all know who you are . . . Scott, Tracey, Steve, Julie, Gord, Patrick, Slug, Wayne, Terror Haute Kent, Jay and Third Coast Zed . . . !
072 06/11/2009 Episode 72 of Mail Order Zombie is another super-sized episode of straight-to-DVD-zombie-movie-goodness . . . and a little bit more. Brother D takes a look two zombie movies this week: Melvin, from director Henry Weintraub; and RetarDEAD, from the team of Rick Popko and Dan West, are reviewed. In the middle of the movie reviews, Brother D sits in with Miss Bren during the Post Script to talk about the post-apocalyptic novel Swan Song by Robert McCammon. Dr. J presents the next installment of his Med of the Dead series, and Zombie Hunter Tony submits another Zombie Squad report, this time covering an game store event that was crashed by zombies. Also, Miss Bren and Brother D attended the 2009 Crypticon Horror Convention in Seattle, WA, this past weekend, so in this episode, you'll get to drop in on the Phantasm panel, as well as hear from folks like Ken Foree, Adrienne King and Reggie Bannister. He didn't get a chance to do so last week, so Brother D met with Platoon of the Dead special make-up effects artist Rob Merickel at Crypticon, and this interview makes its way into this week's episode as well. You'll hear all this, plus the Zombie Aptitude Test, the Feedback Discussion, another contest and two birthday greetings in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie.
073 06/18/2009 There are two zombie movies floating around right now that have zombie movies fans waiting and wondering, and Mail Order Zombie has them both right here this week in Episode 73. Brother D reviews Dead Snow, directed by Tommy Wirkola, and he and Miss Bren sit down to watch Pontypool, directed by Bruce McDonald. Brother D crashes Miss Bren's Post Script with a book review of his own when he reviews the book Zombie Holocaust: How the Living Dead Devoured Pop Culture, written by David Flint and released by Plexus Publishing Limited, and two Mail Order Zombie Family members have contributions this week: Chris Toohey reviews Scott Sigler's audio story Passenger, and Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, gives us another installment in his ABCs of Zombies series. Two contests have winners announced this week, and we're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test. The Feedback Discussion is filled with old friends, new MOZ Family Members and funny words.
074 06/25/2009 Brother D fought the internet while Miss Bren fought a wasp to bring you Episode 74 of Mail Order Zombie, the show devoted to zombie movies . . . and a little bit more! Events outside of Mail Order Zombie Central's control threatened to keep you from getting your MOZ fix, but a little help from the Mail Order Zombie Family helped to make this show one you can't miss! O'Day returns with the first installment in a series of MOZ Survival Tips instructing us on personal combat and the undead. Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, brings two new installments of The ABCs of Zombies (and he's thrilled to be able to talk about a movie Brother D once called "not-a-zombie-movie"). And Jay Emmitt and Need-a-Nickname Scott step up to handle the news chores in this week's Zombie Beat. Of course, there are reviews this week as well - Brother D looks at the ultra independent movies Doomed to Consume, directed by Jason Stephenson, and Fast Zombies With Guns, directed by Bennie Woodell; and Miss Bren takes a break from her zombies to dive into the post-apocalyptic world of Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road in Miss Bren's Post Script. We're still taking answers for the June Zombie Aptitude Test; we need to know what you'd do if the zombie apocalypse was Return of the Living Dead-flavored, so call or write us to take part in this ZAT question. Remember Brother D mentioning the upcoming Summer Knights event this August? In this week's episode, a few more details are spilled for the Family. As always, the Feedback Discussion holds down the backhalf of the show.
Episode 75 Update 06/28/2009 n/a Special Announcement and a Programming Change for Mail Order Zombie: Episode 075.
Episode 75 Round Table 07/05/2009 n/a There's been a request to make the first MOZ Roundtable available by itself, so here it is!
Episode 75 Without Round Table 07/06/2009 (There's also been a request to release Episode 075 without the Roundtable attached, and since we aim to please . . . Here it is!)



Episode 75 of Mail Order Zombie is our most bedazzled yet! To celebrate Independence Day in the US, Brother D reviews the movie Uncle Sam, directed by William Lustig, and he's only reviewing one movie this week so that there's room for the jam-packed Feedback Discussion and the Zombie Aptitude Test answers from last month's ZAT question. This episode runs a bit longer than normal, and that's because in addition to the hefty Feedback, we've got a first here at Mail Order Zombie - we've got the First MOZ Roundtable featuring Brother D and a handful of regular Mail Order Zombie contributors. (Truth be told, there were some audio issues with the recording, so the Roundtable has been moved to the end of the episode. There's some great discussion and content here, but Skype and the other powers that be seemed to be interested in contribution their own hissy two cents worth as well, so please be patient with the audio quality!) The episode starts with a mini-tribute to Michael Jackson's Thriller music video, and this runs about 15 minutes, and then the show is off and running!

076 07/09/2009 It's finally happened! Mail Order Zombie tackles an Asian zombie movie! Versus, directed by Ryûhei Kitamura, gets more than the review treatment - both Brother D and Miss Bren watched the film and discuss it at length in this episode. And because Brother D couldn't get enough samurai sword action, he also reviews Ninjas vs. Zombies from writer/director Justin Timpane. This month's Zombie Aptitude Test question, the weekly Feedback Discussion and a chunk of zombie news in the Zombie Beat round out this episode. Hang on!
077 07/16/2009 Episode 77 marks a milestone for us here at Mail Order Zombie - can you guess what it is before Brother D fails to keep anyone in suspense and mentions what the milestone is less than one minute into this week's show? Speaking of suspense, Miss Bren and Brother D sat down to watch [REC] from directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, and then Brother D reviewed the Blaine Cade and Jason Horton directed upcoming zombie apocalypse movie Edges of Darkness. One of these two movies made Brother D jump. You'll have to listen to the reviews to find out which one. O'Day is back with Part Two of his Undead Combat series in MOZ's Survival Tips, and this time around, he goes over the use of firearms in a world overrun by the undead. After Need-a-Nickname Scott joins Jay Emmitt for this week's Zombie Beat, he poses a question to the MOZ Family; Brother D has a question of his own; and of course, there's the Zombie Aptitude Test question as well! The show runs a bit long this week because Miss Bren and Brother D tried to squeeze in as many emails and voicemails as possible in this week's Feedback Discussion, and Wayne Kotke does it again - we'll just leave it at that.
078 07/23/2009 Where else are you going to go to hear about a zombie opera? No where but Episode 78 of Mail Order Zombie. Brother D and Miss Bren attended Maelstrom: The Zombie Opera last weekend, and they bring you a review of the production as well as interviews with the cast and crew. (Mail Order Zombie would like to thank Reed Reimer, Ben Larson, Nico Izambard, Viktor Maddok, Damien Brooksbank, Claire Craig-Sheets, Anna Viemester, Jeremy Griffin, Bryan Coover and the staff of the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center for hosting us and giving us a moment of their time.) Maelstrom: The Zombie Opera runs through July 25th, 2009. Also this week, in Miss Bren's Post Script, she reviews the short zombie novel Dead Earth: The Green Dawn by Mark Justice and David T. Wilbanks. Movie-wise, Brother D reviews the Joseph D. Smith zombie movie Zombie Campout from 2003. Answers for the July Zombie Aptitude Test are still due, and in the Feedback Discussion, the movies [REC] and Quarantine get a little more discussion . . . among other things.
079 07/30/2009 It's Zombie Movie Veterans' Week here at Mail Order Zombie Central! Larry Purtell, veteran zombie movie actor (Zombie Campout, Die-Ner (Get It?), Dozers, Zombie Ed), drops by for an interview with Brother D and answers the question: "How does one go from acting in church plays to wrangling zombies?" (Mr. Purtell was very generous with his time, and has sent Mail Order Zombie several photos from his time working on Zombie Campout as well as at the Silo X Haunted Attraction, and throughout the week, these pics will turn up on MailOrderZombie.com.) Another zombie movie veteran - Trent Haaga - also gets a little love this week when Brother D reviews 2002's Dead & Rotting (he appears in front of the camera in this one!) and the upcoming release Deadgirl (he wrote this one!). Miss Bren hits the backhalf of the show for a massive Feedback Discussion in which the [REC] vs. Quarantine conversation continues, we talk about Swan Song a bit more, and there's news about Phantasm II.

(Brother D and Miss Bren also appeared on Dead Lantern's World Famous Splattercast this week in Episode 141 to discuss the Mad Max franchise. Brother D also joined Desmond Reddick to discuss the film scores of Clive Barker in Episode 100 of Dread Media.)
080 08/06/2009 Episode 80 kicks off with Summer Knights, Mail Order Zombie's month-long look at Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead films (along with Dread Media); Brother D tries a bit of Spanish when reviewing the first film in the franchise, Tombs of the Blind Dead from 1971. He'll also review the 1980 Bruno Mattei film Hell of the Living Dead. After the Introduction and the news in the Zombie Beat (special thanks to Need-a-Nickname Scott and Jay Emmitt for their hard work this week!), Brother D and Miss Bren are joined by Aaron from Zed Word: The Zombie Blog for a lengthy discussion of the upcoming Steven Rumbelow adaptation of the David Moody novel Autumn. A new Zombie Aptitude Test question is also announced, and this time, a contest is worked into the ZAT - score!
081 08/13/2009 Recorded in the Pacific Northwest and available for download around the world, Episode 81 of Mail Order Zombie is filled with zombies, undead Templar knights, guest appearances and . . . food? This is the second week of Summer Knights, which means Brother D is reviewing the second film in Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead series, Return of the Evil Dead (along with Desmond Reddick at Dread Media at http://www.dreadmedia.net). Illwy Productions' Of the Living Dead is also reviewed this week. The answers from July's Zombie Aptitude Test question are finally shared with the Mail Order Zombie Family, and remember, this month's ZAT question has an opportunity to earn you extra credit with a contest! Zombie Hunter Tony's new segment Staying Fed in the Land of the Dead makes its debut this week, and Corey Graham from the Midnight Podcast joins Brother D for the first part of a two-part mini-roundtable in which they answer questions from the MOZ Family and listeners of the Midnight Podcast. Miss Bren and Brother D end the episode with another healthy round of Feedback Discussion.
082 08/20/2009 Week 82 of Mail Order Zombie brings you Week Three of Summer Knights, the crossover event between Mail Order Zombie and Dread Media during which each of Amando de Ossorio's Blind Dead films are reviewed on both shows. This week, Brother D reviews the third film of the series, The Ghost Galleon. Also, Brother D takes a look at the upcoming anthology horror movie Grave Mistakes, coming soon from direct Chris LaMartina. The current Zombie Aptitude Test has a contest attached to it, and the winner will receive a Mail Order Zombie prize pack. You want more reviews? How about a review of the videogame Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, courtesy of Saint Nasty? And how about this? The Post Script is back; Miss Bren reviews the book The Estuary by Derek Gunn. Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan, hits the MOZ Family with another installment of his ABCs of Zombies, and the Feedback Discussion takes up the backhalf of the show (and during the discussion, Miss Bren learns something about her buzzing nemeses!). And before all this, we get a report from the Zombie Walk from Gen Con 2009! (And check out Need-a-Nickname Scott and Tracey at the Zombie Walk here - http://tinyurl.com/naov4n . . . !)
083 08/27/2009 It all comes down to this - the final week in the Summer Knights event! In Episode 83 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D reviews the fourth Blind Dead film, Night of the Seagulls. In Episode 104 of Dread Media, Desmond Reddick also reviewed the film, and together, Brother D and Des discuss the franchise as a whole. Part 1 of this discussion takes place in MOZ #83, and Part 2 will take place in Dread Media #105 (you are listening to Dread Media at http://www.dreadmedia.net/, aren't you?). Also this week, Mark E. Poole's Dead Moon Rising gets the Headshot Review treatment when Brother D reviews a movie that was donated to the show by a generous member of the Mail Order Zombie Family (you can donate movies to the show, too, by visiting http://tinyurl.com/mozwish/!). Answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test are still being collected (and remember - there is a contest attached to the ZAT this week, and you could win a Mail Order Zombie prize pack!). Emails and voicemails from the MOZ Family bring Miss Bren to the table for the Feedback Discussion (and one voicemail left by long-time-listener-first-time-caller Zombart made its way into this week's select zombie news in the Zombie Beat!).
084 09/03/2009 The Post Script breaks format this week - instead of a book review, Miss Bren interviews Rhiannon Frater, author of the As the World Dies trilogy in this week's show. Brother D brings in two more movie reviews when he casts his Headshot-delivering critical eyes at Clint Keller's Road to Oblivion and the "animagic" special Mad Monster Party. Dr. J is back with a new installment of Med of the Dead, and because it's a new month, there's a new question-of-the-month with the Zombie Aptitude Test. The Feedback Discussion holds down the backhalf of the show (where Wayne Kotke has a special brief message for Brother D), and the Zombie Beat brings in the beginning of the show with the week's selected zombie news courtesy of MOZ Cub Reporter Need-a-Nickname Scott and a special guest.
085 09/10/2009 We've gathered movie reviews, interviews and zombie news for Episode 85 of Mail Order Zombie, the only zombie and horror movie podcast based out of the Pacific Northwest! Tempe Entertainment's The Brass Ring, directed by William Schotten, and Zombie Abomination: The Italian Zombie Movie Part 1, directed by Thomas Berdinski, are lined up for their Headshot reviews. Brother D interviews Revenant Magazine's Geoff Bough, and Miss Bren chats with Eric S. Brown, author of Season of Rot and World War of the Dead. We're still accepting answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test, or ZAT (and last month's ZAT answers will be reviewed next week in Episode 86). We had some very interesting questions posed, and Bren and D spend some time going over everyone's emails and voicemails in the Feedback Discussion in the backhalf of the episode. And pay special attention to the Beat this week - there's a contest or two nestled amongst the week's select zombie news!
086 09/17/2009 Episode 86 of Mail Order Zombie has not one, not two, but THREE zombie movie reviews! Brother D reviews Eat Me! from director Katie Carman and O.C. Babes and the Slasher of Zombietown from director Creep Creepersin, and Aaron from the Zedword Zombie Blog brings us a near-exclusive review of Survival of the Dead! Also, Trent Haaga, a writer/producer/actor whose movies have appeared on Mail Order Zombie six times since our launch, swings by for an interview in which he talks about his start with Troma, his time at Full Moon, writing Feeding the Masses and Deadgirl, as well as his experiences attending an Eastern European zombie walk. The answers from last month's Zombie Aptitude Test are reviewed (and remember, we're still accepting answers for this month's ZAT as well!), and Miss Bren joins Brother D during the backhalf of the show for this week's Feedback Discussion. Brother D rocks the Zombie Beat this week, but not without his MOZ news team Need-a-Nickname Scott and his wife Tracey picking out the best of this week's select zombie news.
087 09/24/2009 Something that hasn't happened in a long time here at Mail Order Zombie happens in this week's episode - you'll have to listen to the four movie reviews to find out what it is! In order, Miss Bren and Brother D review the Jeff Heimbuch movie The Ties That Bind, a short zombie movie based on a Brian Keene short story. Upcoming MOZ webmaster Chris Toohey brings us the first installment of his Couch of the Dead, in which he presents an informal review of the David Decoteau movie Ring of Darkness. Brother D flies solo to review Blood of the Beast, a Georg Koszulinski-directed movie from 2003 featuring clones, zombies and the fall-out of World War III. The big review this week is a review of the movie Zombieland; Brother D and Miss Bren were joined by Zombie Hunter Tony and Headshot Heather for this review and discussion of the upcoming theatrical release. (And if you count the call-in from the Don't Look in the Podcast crew from Horror Realm in which they talk about the movie Zone of the Dead, that gives us a FIFTH review this week!) We still need your answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test, and in the Feedback Discussion, not only is listener feedback highlighted, but the winners to two contests are announced! Of course, no episode would be complete without the week's select zombie news in the Zombie Beat.
087.5 09/25/2009 Blame the zombies or blame Cthulhu. Whatever the reason, Brother D swapped two voice mails sent in to MOZ Central from the Don't Look in the Podcast crew, and played the wrong one yesterday. Remember in Episode 087 when Brother D and Miss Bren refer to a review of Zone of the Dead? Yeah, THIS is the ACTUAL review! Enjoy the review (and a small Zombie Beat update!)
088 10/01/2009 Brother D and Miss Bren spent last Saturday at the 3rd Annual Revenant Film Festival, and they took the MOZ Family with them. Okay, not really. But they DID take their microphone, so you'll be able to hear their opening and introduction (and play along with the audience to see if you would have done compared to the Revenant crowd!), and reviews of the movies they watched - ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction, The Hell Patrol, Plague, Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated and Yesterday. Last month's Zombie Aptitude Test answers will be reviewed, and a new ZAT question will be posed to the Mail Order Zombie Family. The Feedback Discussion wraps up the show, and Need-a-Nickname Scott, who really should be in bed, heads up this week's zombie news in the Zombie Beat. (And not only should you stick around through the end of Yesterday for an after-end-credits surprise, but if you listen through the end of this episode, you'll hear Miss Bren's reaction to non-bee pest!)
089 10/08/2009 Phantasm Month begins in earnest this week in Episode 89 of Mail Order Zombie! Brother D cracks open his Phantasm box/sphere set to review the first film in the franchise. (Richard from Witchita called in his thoughts on the film, too!) Also in the review queue is the soon-to-be-released (October 27th, 2009) zombie movie Dead Air, directed by Corbin Bernsen and starring Bill Moseley and Patricia Tallman. Writer Glenn Kay - winner of the 2008 Dead Letter Award for Best Zombie Book, Non-fiction for his book Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide - swings by to talk zombie movies, compiling his "ultimate" guide and watching Survival of the Dead and [REC] 2. MOZ Family Member Aaron (from The Zed Word: Zombie Blog) also recently saw [REC] 2, and calls in with his thoughts as well.
090 10/15/2009 Phantasm Month continues here on Mail Order Zombie as Brother D reviews the second film in the franchise, Phantasm II. Also, Paul Solet's feature length debut film Grace also takes it Headshots this week when Miss Bren joins Brother D for a review and brief discussion. Episode 90 of Mail Order Zombie also features two survival segments - O'Day is back with a new segment called S.O.S., and Zombie Hunter Tony brings a new installment of Fed in the Land of the Dead. The Feedback Discussion anchors the backhalf of the show, and of course, the show opens with the week's select zombie news in the Zombie Beat. (Will Zombie Beat Cub Reporter Need-a-Nickname Scott return to Mail Order Zombie?) All this, and a Zombie Somba . . . ?
091 10/22/2009 Phantasm Month continues here on Mail Order Zombie when Brother D takes a critical look at Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead. Not only is reality reshaped by the Phantasm films, but the podosphere itself is threatened with not one, but two podcast crossovers. Slug from the Slugcast interviewed Ron Magee and Mitch Brian, the director and writer of Maul of the Dead, the new play from The Coterie Theater. And in one of the strangest podcast crossovers, Brother D reviews the novel Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead for Mail Order Zombie and the IndyCast. We're still taking answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test question, and Need-a-Nickname Scott brings the week's select zombie news in the Zombie Beat. Miss Bren joins Brother D for the Feedback Discussion near the end of the show. (The scheduled review of Evilution has been pushed back a week and will appear in Episode 092.)
092 10/29/2009 Need-a-Nickname Scott calls the antagonist of these movies the Soulsucker of the Universe! It's the end of Phantasm Month here at Mail Order Zombie, and we close out the franchise with a solid like at Phantasm IV: Oblivion, and then Scott joins Brother D for a discussion of the entire franchise (Phantasm Month was the first time Scott had watched these movies). Zombieland gets a little more attention when Chris Toohey, the man behing the upcoming Mail Order Zombie website relaunch, calls in his quick thoughts on the film; and Mathew from Shelbytownship, MI, reports in with another installment of his ABCs of Zombies, this one devoted to Zombieland. Evilution hits DVD on November 17th later this year, and Brother D preps the MOZ Family by reviewing it and giving it a Headshot rating. We've got a contest, we still have this month's Zombie Aptitude Test, or ZAT, question, and we've got Miss Bren joining the show for the week's Feedback Discussion.
092.5 11/04/2009 Phantasm Month would not have happened here on Mail Order Zombie if it wasn't for MOZ Family Member Richard from Witchita. He just called in his thoughts on Phantasm IV: Oblivion and the franchise overall, and while he has a somewhat different opinion than Brother D and Need-a-Nickname Scott, we still wanted to share his thoughts with the family. Enjoy!
093 11/05/2009 Two movies, one book, one iPhone game - this is Episode 93 of Mail Order Zombie, and Brother D and company have Headshots, ratings and discussions for the MOZ Family this week. The movies? 2007's War of the Dead and Night of the Creeps. The iPhone game? Zombieland, reviewed by Need-a-Nickname Scott. The book? Zombies for Zombies: Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead by David P. Murphy, reviewed by Miss Bren and Wayne Kotke. There is a new Zombie Aptitude Test question introduced at the beginning of this week's show (last month's ZAT answers will be reviewed in next week's show), and in the Feedback Discussion, Miss Bren reveals a dark and terrible secret about her and . . . Chinese Food?
093.5 11/07/2009 n/a Miss Bren and Wayne Kotke spoke for more than the 25-ish minutes it took to review Zombies for Zombies, and the topics ranged from Disney princess to "Sex and the City." We thought the MOZ Family might get a kick out of hearing a bit of this conversation, and Brother D needed to apologize for a couple of things anyway, so here's a special Mail Order Zombie for y'all!
094 11/12/2009 It's Miss Bren's birthday, and we're celebrating with another episode of Mail Order Zombie! The movies Doghouse (2009, directed by Jake West) and The Mad (2007, directed by John Kalangis) step into Brother D's sights for their Headshot reviews. (Special thanks to the MOZ Family Member that sent The Mad to Mail Order Zombie Central for us to review!) October's Zombie Aptitude Test answers are reviewed this week, and this month's ZAT question is presented to the Family. Winners are announced for two contests - someone will win Miss Bren's review copy of David P. Murphy's Zombies for Zombies: Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead, and someone else will win another weekend pass to HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati. The Feedback Discussion kicks off with nearly 20 minutes of birthday greetings for Miss Bren, but she doesn't get too choked up to finish out the show by going over everyone's voicemails and emails.
095 11/19/2009 Brother D is about to take to the air for HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati November 20-22, but he couldn't leave the MOZ Family hangin' without another episode of Mail Order Zombie! In Episode 95, Brother D takes a good, hard look at the 1987 zombie movie The Video Dead written and directed by Robert Shaw. Chris MacGibbon is such a huge fan of The Video Dead, he's trying to get MGM's attention and wants to see the movie receive a proper DVD release, so he's begun an Internet campaign to raise awareness about the 80s movie. He swings by the show this week to talk about the movie and the movement. Also, we don't know if you heard, but Left 4 Dead 2 came out this week, and Miss Bren joins Brother D for a review of the video game. In the Feedback Discussion, Miss Bren talks Brother D into giving a Headshot rating to a short zombie movie that's NOT been released to DVD . . . after we go over a few belated birthday wishes from the MOZ Family.

(Please accept our apologies for pushing back our review of Black Demons. This movie will be reviewed next week in Episode 96.)
096 11/26/2009 n/a To those of you celebrating Thanksgiving today, Mail Order Zombie wishes you a happy and safe Thanksgiving. If you're not celebrating the holiday, Happy Thursday! In Episode 96 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D recounts his experiences at HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati (and he almost didn't come home!). While at the convention, Brother D met old and new friends, and collected several short interviews with filmmakers like Ray Basham, Cameron Scott and Corbin Bernsen, plus the Q&A session after the Night of the Creeps screening. He also picked up a number of movies that he'll be reviewing in upcoming episodes of MOZ. We're still taking answers for this month's Zombie Aptitude Test, and Need-a-Nickname Scott serves up yet another healthy dose of zombie news in the Zombie Beat, and of course Miss Bren swings by the end of the show to go over the weekly Feedback Discussion.
097 12/03/2009 This is Mail Order Zombie's Thanksgiving Leftovers episode! Brother D reviews two poultry-themed zombie movies this week - Zombeak, written and directed by Sam Drog, and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead from director Lloyd Kaufman who swings by the show for an interview in which he talks about Poultrygeist as well as the "giant conspiracy of devil-worshiping international media conglomerates." (And for the record, I HAVE read Mr. Kaufman's books! I may not enjoy all his movies, but I certainly respect the man and his fight for artistic independence . . .) The new Zombie Aptitude Test question is revealed to the MOZ Family (November's ZAT answers will be reviewed next week), and Miss Bren rounds out the show when she joins the Feedback Discussion.
098 12/10/2009 After weeks of pushing it back, Umberto Lenzi's Black Demons (aka Demoni 3) FINALLY gets its proper review here on Mail Order Zombie in Episode 98. Joining Black Demons is the 1961 Barry Mahon film The Dead One, aka Blood of the Zombie. Brother D dishes out the Headshot reviews, and also goes over the answers from last month's Zombie Aptitute Test (don't forget this month's ZAT!). Two contests - one MOZ-specific and one from one of our friends - are announced, and Miss Bren and Brother D hears from the MOZ Family in the Feedback Discussion
099 12/17/2009 Another episode of Mail Order Zombie brought to you by the Letter D - Brother D reviews Demon Resurrection, written and directed by William Hopkins (2009); and Dead Men Walking, written by Mike Watt and directed by Peter Mervis. We're taking answers for December's Zombie Aptitude Test, and the Create-the-Next-MOZ-Promo Contest is in full swing. We've got news with Need-a-Nickname Scott, and the shows ends with a healthy, if explicit, dose of Feedback Discussion with Miss Bren.
100 12/24/2009 After 100 weeks in a row, Brother D and Miss Bren celebrate by presenting Mail Order Zombie #100, the Dawn of the Dead special! Brother D has seen both George A. Romero's original Dawn of the Dead and the Zach Snyder-directed remake more than once, but Miss Bren . . . ? She'd not seen either of them prior to watching them for this episode. What will happen when a zombie-movie-watching-veteran and a relative newcomer sit down for a discussion about one of the benchmarks of zombie cinema? Who will walk away alive? Who will walk away with divorce papers? Who will call in? We'll give you the answer to that last question; Mail Order Zombie received congratulatory phone calls, holiday wishes and thoughts on Dawn of the Dead from the MOZ Family and fellow podcasters, and you'll get to hear all this in MOZ #100. Brother D will also turn his critical ears toward the scores from both films, and in a special Post Script, he'll discuss the 1979 Dawn of the Dead novelization (written by George A. Romero and Susanna Sparrow). Where else are you going to hear discussion about Dawn of the Dead, taking over a shopping mall, Star Wars action figures, Stephen King, Darkman, Frank Lloyd Wright, The Evil Dead, Quarantine, Peter David, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and multiple personality disorder? Right here! (The Zombie Beat and the Feedback Discussion will be back next week.)
101 12/31/2009 100 episodes down, and we're a long way from being finished! This is Episode 101 of Mail Order Zombie, and this week, Brother D takes aim at two more zombie movies - 1981's Dead & Buried, directed by Gary Sherman, co-written by Dan O'Bannon; and 2009's Hillbilly Bob Zombie, written and directed by Ray Basham. The answers to this month's holiday-themed Zombie Aptitude Test are reviewed, and Miss Bren joins Brother D to dip into the emails and voicemails that have found their way to MOZ Central in this week's Feedback Discussion. (The Create-the-New-MOZ-Promo has been extended through January - listen to this episode for details on how you can win!)

106 02/04/2010 Let's throw another two (movie reviews) on the fire in Episode 106 of Mail Order Zombie. Eat Me: A Zombie Musical from writer/director Brian Wimer is . . . experienced this week, and because the Portland Grindhouse Film Festival brought in a 35mm print of Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror Brother D and Zombie Hunter Tony couldn't miss an opportunity to see this movie on the big screen. This past Tuesday, the 5-Headshots-out-of-5-rated movie Zombieland was released to Blu-ray and DVD, and since they've already reviewed the movie itself back in Episode 87, Brother D and Miss Bren focus on the release's special features when they talk about the movie this week. Last month's Zombie Aptitude Test answers are revealed, and a new ZAT question is posed to the Family; one contest winner is announced, and a new contest is announced; emails and voicemails; fun, fun, fun!
107 02/11/2010 You know how a zombie must be after gorged itself on a family of four at the Zombie Jamboree Picnic? Full? Stuffed? Almost bloated?

Dr. J brings a new installment of Med of the Dead. O'Day brings his thoughts on the "Urban Survival" episode of Man vs. Wild.

The Family gets all this, plus updates on THREE contests, and even Skeptical Zack sneaks in a review of the book Kings of the Dead by Tony Faville in the Feedback Discussion!

110 03/04/2010 We've just about recovered from last week's Dead Letter Awards, and it's a good thing, because we're diving into Round Two of March of the Zombi(e) here at MOZ. This year, Brother D will take a look at some other zombie movies that have had the distinction of being called Zombie, Zombi or some numbered Zombie or Zombi sequel. To kick off March of the Zombi(e) 2010, Brother D reviews Jorge Grau's The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, aka Zombi 3 (and a number of other titles as well!). Also, he'll review Riffle Pictures' Motor Home From Hell, directed by Ross Payton. This week also includes the first part of a two-part interview with director Brad Sykes (The Zombie Chronicles, Plaguers) and a recording from a recent Max Brooks event in Salem, OR. Miss Bren helps out with the returning Feedback Discussion this week (and it's full of stars), a new ZAT question is posed to the MOZ listeners, and of course, Need-a-Nickname Scott has the news in this week's Zombie Beat.
111 03/11/2010 March of the Zombi(e) continues with a look at José Luis Merino's Zombie 3: Return of the Living Dead, aka The Hanging Woman. Brother D tackles this movie review, and MOZ Family member Richard from Wichita phones in his review of The Crazies (2010) from director Breck Eisner. Need-a-Nickname Scott appears on the show multiple times this week - not only is he heading up this week's Zombie Beat, but he also joins Brother D in reviewing last month's ZAT answers. All this, plus a recording from the first public reading and book signing of Tony Faville's Kings of the Dead!
111.5 03/18/2010 n/a In this special episode of Mail Order Zombie, Brad Sykes returns to the show for the second part of the interview that began in Episode 110. Plaguers was reviewed back in Episode 104, and in Episode 111.5 of MOZ, Sykes talks about his experiences getting the movie off the ground, production of Plaguers and the movie's reception.
112 03/18/2010 March of the Zombi(e) continues with a look at Zombie 6: Monster Hunter, aka Horrible (as well as at least another half-dozen titles!) And then to change things up, Brother D gets musical when he reviews Bill Arnold's Night of the Musical Dead. Need-a-Nickname Scott and Miss Bren and hanging out for the Zombie Beat and the Feedback Discussion respectively, and remember, we're still taking answers for the current Zombie Aptitude Test!
113 03/25/2010 Brother D and Miss Bren are about to take to the skies and head to HorrorHound Weekend Indianapolis 2010, but they're not leaving you without your recommended daily weekly dose of Mail Order Zombie! In Episode 113, Brother D reviews the just-released-in-the-UK/soon-to-be-released-domestically Survival of the Dead. The Romero-love continues when Ghastly Guy writes in about the Dawn of the Dead boardgame, and Headshot Heather and Zombie Hunter Tony join Brother D and Miss Bren for a runthrough of the game itself (provided courtesy of Bald Zombie). Finally, Richard from Wichita calls in his thoughts of Romero's original film The Crazies and then compares it to the remake (which he reviewed on the show previously). In addition to this Romero coverage, this episode of MOZ brings you survival tips in the form of another installment of Zombie Hunter Tony's Staying Fed in the Land of the Dead, and some knowledge in the form of the ABCs of Zombies courtesy of Mathew from Shelbytownship, Michigan.
114 03/31/2010 While Brother D and Miss Bren are away, the mice will play. . . or at least one BIG mouse in the form of Need-A-Nickname Scott who puts his own twist on the podcast.

Once his shenanigans are complete, we'll go live (via digital tape) to Miss Bren and Brother D discussing the films in the Resident Evil franchise.

Feedback will return next week in Episode 115 - if Brother D is released.
115 04/08/2010 n/a Brother D and Miss Bren have spent the past two weekends away from MOZ Central, and in Episode 115, they're joined by Need-a-Nickname Scott and his wife Tracey to talk about part of the reason they were away - HorrorHound Weekend Indianapolis 2010. While at the convention, Brother D interviewed director Terence Muncy about his movie Hell Walks the Earth and in another interview, director Thomas Berdinski tries to convince Brother D to give The Italian Zombie Movie Part 2 a fair shake! (Due to the conventions taking their toll on Brother D's and Miss Bren's health and sanity, there is - sadly - no Feedback Discussion this week.) Also this week is the new monthly Zombie Aptitude Test question!
115.5 04/08/2010 n/a This is the Day of the Dead panel from HorrorHound Weekend Indianapolis 2010!
116 04/15/2010 It's Tax Day here in the US, and Brother D pushes through the tail end of a headcold to give you a break from all your number-crunching and calculator-abuse with Episode 116 of Mail Order Zombie. In this week's episode, Brother D reviews the movie Dead at the Box Office and MOZ Family Member Richard from Witchita calls in his thoughts on the premiere screening of the movie The Dead Can't Dance. Emails and voicemails have been piling up, and Miss Bren and Brother D do their best to knock some of them out (and if you haven't heard your email/voicemail this week, chances are we'll get to it next week or the week after that!)
116.5 04/19/2010 n/a Here they are (finally!) - the answers from the March 2010 Zombie Aptitude Test question!
117 04/22/2010 Zombie Westerns and Vegan Zombies populate Episode 117 of Mail Order Zombie, the premiere zombie and horror movie podcast of the Pacific Northwest with listeners around the world. This week, Brother D hosts a Devil's Crossing roundtable discussion with actors Michael Sharpe, Patrick Keenan, Jeff Madzai and Sam Matheny; and then reviews the 2010 movie Attack of the Vegan Zombies!, written and directed by Jim Townsend. Only one thing could make this episode better? Miss Bren joining Brother D for the weekly Feedback Discussion.
118 04/29/2010 Brother D pulled himself away from Left 4 Dead 2's "The Passing" long enough to review the Italian short The Zombie Connection, written and directed by Marco Magni; and back in March, Brother D sat down with author Robert Freese, and here you'll hear the interview that took place. (Robert Freese will be appearing at Con-tamination 2010!) Finally, because the undead have been getting a little frisky lately, O'Day returns with a new installment of O'Day's MOZ Survival Tips. The Mail Order Zombie Family will get a reminder of the contest that's been running on MOZ since the near-beginning, and at the near-end of this episode, Miss Bren joins Brother D for the weekly Feedback Discussion.
118.5 04/29/2010 n/a Brother D was a panelist at Norwescon 33, and this is a recording from the panel "Another Zombie Panel" moderated by Ciandi Patry; The Reverend En Fuego was the other panelist.
119 05/06/2010 Ken Foree flexes his acting chops in the Milan Konjevic & Milan Todorovic-directed zombie film Apocalypse of the Dead (aka Zone of the Dead) . . . and Brother D AND Miss Bren review him, and the rest of the film, in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie. Last month's Zombie Aptitude Test answers are reviewed, and new ZAT question (courtest of an MOZ Family Member) is presented to the class. We've got all this, plus the Zombie Beat and the Feedback Discussion in this week's episode . . .
120 05/13/2010 In this action-packed (action-packed?) episode of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D casts his critical eye (critical eye?) at the Jim O’Rear written- and directed-zombie movie Scream Farm. Dr. J teaches the MOZ Family a valuable lesson in a new installment of Dr. J’s Med of the Dead (special thanks to KK from Family Movie Night for her assistance this time around!). Emails and voicemails anchor the show, and Miss Bren drops in to keep Brother D and Dr. J in line (in line?).
120.5 05/13/2010 n/a Brother D was a panelist at Norwescon 33, and this is a recording from the panel "It's the End of the World as We Know It" moderated by Robert Grey; Anthony van Winkle was the other panelist.
121 05/20/2010 This week, Mail Order Zombie takes on The Dead Pit . . . no, not the long-running internet radio show, but the 1989 Brett Leonard-directed zombie movie which was released to DVD by Code Red in 2008. Also on the show this week is John Harrison, a man who's worn several hats in the filmmaking community - director, composer, AD, writer, etc., etc. With Need-a-Nickname Scott still on vacation, two other members of the MOZ Family are stepping in to help with the new sin the Zombie Beat this week, but that doesn't mean we don't hear from Scott this week; he makes an appearance in this week's Feedback Discussion (and supposedly Miss Bren has some 'splainin' to do . . . ).
122 05/27/2010 Do you know how hard it is to type show notes with a thumb Spica wrist brace? It's not easy! When Brother D isn't whining about his thumb hurting, he reviews the 2010 movie The Dead Walk from writer/director Michael Clinkenbeard courtesy of RoadKill Cinema Productions. Eric Morgret, Head of Programming for Crypticon Seattle, stops by for a chat about the upcoming convention, and if you pay close enough attention, you'll get to hear about Mail Order Zombie's planned presence at Crypticon as well! Okay, you don't have to pay THAT much attention - Miss Bren and Brother D talk about it in this week's Feedback Discussion!
123 06/02/2010 Brother D setting himself on fire, flying heads, zombies on public access television, spontaneous beat-boxing, an old issue of Heavy Metal magazine, ESP, lawyers, dinosaur diets, Saw, Lost, the Zombie Aptitude Test, another dig at Zombieland, Resident Evil 4, Molotov cocktails, info dumps, evil sap, inappropriately confusing The Book of Zombie with something else and Run-D.M.C. - this is Episode 123 of Mail Order Zombie. To be more specific, Brother D interviews Patrick Devaney about his television show Zombie Hunters: City of the Dead, and he reviews Thomas Berdinski's Zombie Atrocity: The Italian Zombie Movie Part 2. Last month's ZAT answers are discussed before a new ZAT question is presented to the MOZ Family, Miss Bren hits up the Feedback Discussion while Need-a-Nickname Scott heads up the news with the Zombie Beat.

RIP Dennis Hopper.
124 06/09/2010 Brother D shows that he has flavor . . . sort of . . . when he reviews Mutant Vampire Zombies from the 'Hood! from director Thunder Levin. While this movie was released without a rating, it certainly WOULD have earned an R-rating, so consider yourself warned when you listen to this movie's review. (Of course, Miss Bren's freestyling sometimes would earn an R-rating, too!) In the Zombie Beat, Need-a-Nickname Scott brings us some news about The Walking Dead, and we CAN'T WAIT to see this series realized after hearing the clip of Frank Darabont talking about the production that Scott dug up!
125 06/17/2010 We celebrate the 125th episode of Mail Order Zombie with Night of the Comet! Brother D reviews the classic 80s film, and he's joined by several members of the Mail Order Zombie Family when they call in their thoughts on the film as well! An installment of the ABCs of Zombies focuses on the movie, and Catherine Mary Stewart stops by Mail Order Zombie Central for an interview! Daddy might have gotten them uzis, but Brother D brings you the Night of the Comet goodness this week! This episode runs heavy during the Feedback Discussion with Brother D and Miss Bren, and more than once, some bonus beats are dropped.
126 06/24/2010 Brother D and Miss Bren spent a weekend in Seattle, and all you get is Mail Order Zombie Episode 126! To give you a taste of Crypticon Seattle 2010, you'll get a quick visit with Ernie Hudson; an interview with the writer of the comic The Adventures of Doctor Zombie Mackenzie Meredith; another interview with Alan Gandy, the creator of the graphic novel Voyeur Dead; a review of J. T. Seaton's George's Intervention, which was the movie Brother D presented to the crowd at the con. Miss Bren and Brother D turned on their recorder at the con (thanks for joining the show Pat!), and then sat down behind their mics at MOZ Central to dive into the week's Feedback Discussion.
126.5 06/25/2010 n/a Brother D was a panelist at Crypticon Seattle 2010, and this is a recording from the ​ARRGH! Brains! panel, featuring Eric Pope, Mark Henry, Mark Rahner, S.G. Browne and Brother D
127 07/01/2010 Three reviews, two interviews and we lost track of how many emails & voicemails we received this week! In Episode 127 of MOZ, ​Brother D reviews 2005's Shock-O-Rama , a kinda-sorta anthology movie from director Brett Piper. Scott Cole (13 Visions) returns with a new installment of Dead Air in which he reviews The Peoria Plague, a 1970s zombie radio drama - you need to hear this review! Also, MOZ Family Members Kim and Julie join the fun this week with a review of the audio drama We're Alive. Brother D caught up with writer Steven L. Frank and artist Ben Glendenning at Crypticon Seattle 2010 where he spoke with them about their comic Zombies vs. Cheerleaders, which Brother D and Miss Bren discuss (don't forget the contest!) before diving into this week's Feedback Discussion.
128 07/08/2010 It's been requested, so in this week's episode of Mail Order Zombie, Cemetery Man, aka Dellamorte Dellamore, gets its Headshot(s) review. And consider yourselves warned - there are some spoilers here (of course, the movie is over fifteen years old, so the statute of limitations on Spoiler Warnings may have expired!). Last month's Zombie Aptitude Test questions are reviewed, and we'e already started receiving answers for this month's ZAT (Undead Karaoke, baby!). Also, we got to talk with author Timothy W. Long (The Zombie Wilson Diaries and The Apocalypse and Satan's Glory Hole). Add a little Miss Bren and Need-a-Nickname Scott, and a Crypticon Seattle recording in which we talk about obscure zombie movies (and a brief meandering about Labyrinth in which Brother D mentions Jennifer Connelly and Miss Bren DOESN'T immediately slug him), and you've got Episode 128 of MOZ.
129 07/15/2010 With apologies to those looking forward to the scheduled review of Redneck Carnage, we apologize. The review of this movie has been pushed back a week; instead, Brother D and Miss Bren discuss End Transmission from co-directors Jason Impey and Kemal Yildirum. Dr. J is back with a new installment of Dr. J's Med of the Dead (in which he assures us K. K. is doing well!), and Need-a-Nickname Scott and Tracey? They spent last weekend at the first Famous Monsters Convention, and in this first of two installments of their convention report, they break down some of the panels they attended, they interview actor Sal Lizard, talk about artist Sam Flegal and point us all in the direction of The Zombie Rights Campaign.
130 07/22/2010 While some are having a grand ol' time at Comic-Con, y'all have a great time with Episode 130 of Mail Order Zombie! This week, Need-a-Nickname Scott and Tracey wrap up their coverage of the recent Famous Monsters Convention, and thanks to their hard work, you'll get to sit in on the Dawn of the Dead panel from the con. Plus, they interview the filmmakers behind the upcoming The Amateur Monster Movie. In non-con content, Brother D reviews the movie Redneck Carnage from director Johnno Zee and the novel Bijou of the Dead from Robert Freese.

Also this week, Brother D takes a look at the 2009-/2010 Australian movie The Outback (also known as Dreamtime's Over or Prey). This is the final week for the Undead Karaoke Zombie Aptitude Test, or ZAT; the deadline is August 2, 2010. We'll announce the winner of the Sal Lizard signed photo and the DVD of Hillbilly Bob Zombie, which is how we start the Feedback Discussion with Miss Bren.

Episode 132 of MOZ is an international episode - in addition to reviewing Bio Zombie, Brother D reviews the US short zombie movie The Duty of Living from director Brandon Hunt, he throws a French word out in the podcast at some random point, and even opens the show with a call to another country all together. Miss Bren's on deck for the Feedback Discussion and Need-a-Nickname Scott's ready with this week's news in the Zombie Beat. And, HEY! It's Undead Karaoke!

It's a Sunday surprise! In Episode 132.5 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D interviews Lyle Perez-Tinics about the upcoming zombie anthology The Undead That Saved Christmas. Also, we have another panel from Crypticon Seattle 2010; Brother D moderates a panel called Remaking Romero, and he was joined by Mark Rahner, S. G. Browne and Chris Martens. In this episode, we also reveal the name of the next movie in MOZ's month-long look at Asian zombie movies, and we have a very special voicemail from Deadfinger.
133 08/12/10 Week Two of Mail Order Zombie's look at Asian zombie movies brings Brother D face-to-face with 2001's Stacy from Naoyuki Tomomatsu. Also receiving its long-awaited review is 2010's The Book of Zombie from director's Paul Cranefield, Scott Kragelung and Erik Van Sant. With more Undead Karaoke, a Feedback Discussion with Miss Bren and Need-a-Nickname Scott's near-patented journalistic stylings with the Zombie Beat, what more want out of Episode 133 of MOZ?
134 08/19/10 Week Three of Month of the Rising Dead places Brother D in front of 地獄甲子園, aka Hell Stadium, aka Battlefield Baseball from director Yudai Yamaguchi. Before stepping onto the baseball diamond, though, he'll first watch and review Edward Douglas' The Dead Matter (Edward Douglas stopped by Mail Order Zombie in Episode 131 for an interview). There's more Undead Karaoke, more zombie news from Need-a-Nickname Scott and more Miss Bren in this week's Feedback Discussion. 楽しみの時間
135 08/25/10 Episode 135 of Mail Order Zombie is BONUS-SIZED! For the final week of The Far East Feast, Brother D reviews the 2005 movie 東京ゾンビ, also known as Tokyo Zombie from director Sakichi Sato, and he’s not doing it alone. In addition to spilling the latest zombie news, Need-a-Nickname Scott joins him for a discussion of this film. Brother D will also take a look at the recent release Zombie Women of Satan from directors Steve O’Brien and Warren Speed. ZomBart attended the recent Monster Mania convention last weekend, and calls in with a running commentary on the event, and Steve and Gord from the BoneBat Show stop by to talk about their upcoming event, the BoneBat Comedy of Horrors Film Fest. Miss Bren – who’s still allowed on the show despite her encouraging people to sing the Bananapants song(!) – joins Brother D for the Feedback Discussion, which fortunately includes more than just the Bananapants songs. It has the more UNDEAD KARAOKE!
136 09/02/10 Brother D, Miss Bren, Need-a-Nickname Scott and Tracey are getting ready to head to the BoneBat Comedy of Horrors Film Fest (http://bonehand.com/bonebatff.html/) and PAX 2010 (http://www.paxsite.com/paxprime/index.php/), but before they hit the road, Episode 136 of Mail Order Zombie needs to hit the podwaves. In this week's show, Brother D interviews two filmmakers: John Johnson (Shadowhunters, Skeleton Key, Plan 9) from Darkstone Entertainment (http://www.darkstone-ent.com/index.html/) and Ryan Thompson (Zombie Apocalypse, Zombie Apocalypse: Redemption) from Phantasmal Pictures (http://www.phantasmalpictures.com/). He also finds time to review the SRS Cinema release of Lights, Camera and Dead from director Tim Reaper. Even though Scott and Tracey are technically on vacation this week, they still take the time to rock out this week's Zombie Beat, and Miss Bren takes a break from packing to respond to some of your emails and voicemails in this week's Feedback Discussion.
137 09/09/10 Brother D and Miss Bren have said repeatedly that one of their favorite things to come from producing Mail Order Zombie is the Mail Order Zombie Family, and Episode 137 features contributions from several members of the MOZ Family. ZomBart calls in from the 2010 Dragon*Con (and he's planning on covering Monster-Mania in mid-September, so if any other mOZ Family Members are attending that con, post about it in the message boards and see if you can meet up!). The crew from the ThirtyNothings provide this week's movie review when they take on Peter Jackson's 1992 film Dead Alive. On a non-zombie movie note, Family Member Silent Death calls in a review of The Last Exorcism. Regular contributor and Voice of the Family Need-a-Nickname Scott is still live at the bunker here at MOZ Central, and his wife Tracey hasn't gotten sick of the zombie lovin' lifestyle yet, so they join Brother D and Miss Bren in talking about their experience at The BoneBat Comedy of Horrors Film Festival and PAX 2010. And this week's Zombie Beat is prefaced by a musical contribution from Bald Zombie!
138 09/16/10 Brother D and Miss Bren play games this week . . . with Need-a-Nickname Scott, Tracey, Zombie Hunter Tony and Headshot Heather. At PAX, Brother D interviewed Scott Hill from Flying Frog Productions about their games Last Night on Earth, A Touch of Evil and their upcoming releases, and after the interview, you'll get a review of Last Night on Earth after the group played it. Also, Brother D reviews Tim Hellman's Revenge of the Dead, and while neither of your hosts were able to see Resident Evil: Afterlife, several members of the MOZ Family did and some of them called in their own reviews of the fourth installment of this movie franchise.
139 09/23/10 Episode 139 of Mail Order Zombie brings two more Brother D-penned reviews - Haynze Whitmore's Wade and Corey Logsdon's Zombie Epidemic - and a report on another con that Brother D didn't attend - Monster-Mania (thanks Zombart!). Regular suspects Miss Bren and Need-a-Nickname Scott are in attendance as well!
140 09/30/10 The final day of September brings you just another episode of Mail Order Zombie . . . just another episode PACKED with interviews, reviews and Feedback! Brother D reviews the 2010 LA Beats Entertainment release Zombies Unleashed, and while he was watching that DVD, MOZ Cub Reporter Need-a-Nickname Scott was partying it up at Franklin, Indiana's B-Movie Celebration last weekend, where he interviewed Bo Buckley, the writer of the new zombie movie Death of the Dead. When Scott got home from the celebration, he and his wife Tracey reviewed the book Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin D. Anderson and Sam Stall (and if you listen to the review real close, you'll hear about a contest in which you can win your own copy of the book!). In the meantime, Brother D inteviewed director Justin Timpane, the man behind Ninjas Vs. Zombies and the upcoming Ninjas Vs. Vampires. Also, at one of the many festivals ZomBart has attended recently, he spoke with the forces behind the website 888WuzDead. Of course, Miss Bren rounds out the show when she settles in behind the mic for the Feedback Discussion at the end of the show. (And when the show's over, you can hear an episode of Plan D's Countdown to Halloween.)
141 10/07/10 One-hundred forty-one episodes and still going strong! In Episode 141 of Mail Order Zombie, Brother D, Miss Bren and Need-a-Nickname Scott are joined by two members of the MOZ Family this week. While Brother D reviews Nightmare Alley, Silent Death reviews a movie that Brother D may not have gotten to while Zombart brings us an interview with the Ghouligans. Additionally, last month's Zombie Aptitude Test answers are reviewed and a new ZAT question is posed to the MOZ Family.
142 10/14/10 You hear that? It's Episode 142 of Mail Order Zombie, and in this episode, the MOZ Family brings the best episode of Mail Order Zombie you'll hear all week. Kim & Julie from Warp'd Space and 19 Nocturne Boulevard respectively review the zombie audio drama One Eighteen: Migration (http://oneeighteenmigration.blogspot.com/). Brother D reviews the 1968 Ted V. Mikels film The Astro-Zombies, and Need-a-Nickname Scott reviews the J. L. Bourne book Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile. Zombart spent last weekend at Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend (http://spookyempire.com/), and has coverage from this event as well.
143 10/21/10 After 143 episodes and 250 movie reviews, Brother D is drawing a blank for a clever show description for Episode 143 of Mail Order Zombie . . . or maybe watching The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Died and Became Mixed-Up Zombies did him in . . . even if Need-a-Nickname Scott held his hand while reviewing the Ray Dennis Steckler cult classic. Also, D reviews the book Night of the Living Dead: Behind the Scenes of the Most Terrifying Zombie Movie Ever. Richard from Wichita lets the MOZ Family know about two zombie-ish events happening in his neck of the woods, and Miss Bren has recovered from her root canal to knock out a chunk of voicemails and emails in this week's Feedback Discussion. Umami.
144 10/27/10 Three more days to Halloween . . . Halloween . . . Halloween . . . and three more movie reviews on Mail Order Zombie. This week, Brother D casts his eye back at some movies he's already reviewed on the show. Colin, Zombie Girl: The Movie and Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated all now have proper home releases to DVD, and D takes another look at these movies to see if the DVD's presentation and special features change Mail Order Zombie's initial reviews. Also, the winner of the Night of the Living Trekkies book is announced, this month's Zombie Aptitude Test is reviewed while a new ZAT is presented to the MOZ Family, and Miss Bren makes it through another round of Feedback!
145 11/04/10 Begrüßen Sie zu Woche eine des Aufstieges des toten Reichs auf Bestellungs- per Postzombie. (I'm going to assume Yahoo! Babel Fish got that right!) This is Episode 145 of Mail Order Zombie, and to kick off Nazi Zombie Movie Month here on MOZ, Brother D reviews the 1981 film Oasis of the Zombies. Two videogames get some attention this week as well - when Brother D wasn't watching zombie movies, he was dispatching zombies Old West style in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, and Zombie Farmer was rocking out with them in Rock of the Dead. This past Sunday marked the premiere of The Walking Dead, and when she wasn't recording the Feedback Discussion with Brother D, Miss Bren was watching zombies on TV and reviewing Episode 1 with him. All this, plus the news with Birthday Boy Need-a-Nickname Scott's Zombie Beat!
146 11/11/10 Another week of November, another Nazi zombie movie covered on Episode 146 of Mail Order Zombie. Brother D continues his look at this sub-sub-genre of zombie films when he reviews 1977's Shock Waves from director Ken Wiederhorn. He also takes a look at Nicholas Aubrey's recent release Zombie Town: The Movie. Zombart catches up with horror hostess Ms. Monster, and Miss Bren joins the show not just for the Feedback Discussion, but to also discuss Episode 2 of AMC's The Walking Dead.
147 11/18/10 How do you say the words kilts, lesbian, armageddon, bad acting, good lyrics, nachos, inappropriate use of water fowl anatomy, television, divorce, and, um, Nazi in German? In podcasting language, all these words MIGHT be pronounced "Mail Order Zombie Episode 147." In this week's episode, Brother D reviews the movies Cupcake: A Zombie Lesbian Musical from director Rebecca Thomson and Armageddon of the Dead from director Damon Crump. For Rise of the Dead Reich, he takes a look at the 1943 film Revenge of the Zombies from director Steve Sekely. The third episode of The Walking Dead aired here in the states last Sunday, so Miss Bren joins Brother D for another spoiler-free discussion of the television show (it's getting tougher and tougher to stay spoiler-free!), and Need-a-Nickname Scott has the news in the Zombie Beat. This week's Feedback Discussion runs a bit on the long-side this week, so consider yourself warned, but, hey, you watch bad zombie after bad zombie movie with Brother D, right? You can probably handle some extra emails and voicemails from the Mail Order Zombie family!
147.5 11/25/10
    n/a
Brother D and Miss Bren throw off the chains of remaining Spoiler-free and talk about The Walking Dead with no restraint! Along the way, Miss Bren gets distracted by snow and Brother D gets dangerously close to adding the suffix -ocalypse to too many words.
148 11/25/10 Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for listening to Mail Order Zombie Episode 148, the final week of Rise of the Dead Reich, the Nazi Zombie Movie Month! This week, Brother D casts his gaze into the murky waters of 1981's Zombie Lake (dir. Jean Rollin). On a non-Nazi-zombie-related note, he also spends some quality time with a single zombie in the movie Make-Out With Violence (dir. The Deagol Brothers). When he isn't presenting the weekly zombie news in the Zombie Beat, Need-a-Nickname Scott reviews the novel Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion by Alan Goldsher, and of course, Miss Bren helps keep the show on track when she joins Brother D for the Feedback Discussion. This is the final week for November's Zombie Aptitude Test, and as a BONUS at the end of the episode, we present the very first episode of Mail Order Zombie Family Theatre with the story "Zack Bites Back."
149 12/02/10 This is the last episode of Mail Order Zombie before Miss Bren gets Day of the Dead'ed in our special 150th episode next week! Episode 149 features reviews of the movies The Mental Dead (2003, dir. Adam Deyoe) and Lynch Mob (2010, dir. Byron Erwin). Last month's Zombie Aptitude Test questions are reviewed before a new ZAT is aimed at the MOZ Family, and near the beginning of the Feedback Discussion, Miss Bren and Brother D talk a bit (more) about The Walking Dead, and Need-a-Nickname Scott takes a break from Movin' Like Berney to bring the week's select zombie news in the Zombie Beat.
150 12/09/10 The classic Romero film Day of the Dead is the topic dejour of Episode 150 of Mail Order Zombie (as is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs)! Miss Bren finally sat down to watch the third film in the ...Dead franchise (it's the fourth ...Dead film she's watched, fifth if you count Shaun..., but that's not really a Romero film so nevermind!), and she joins Brother D to discuss the movie. Brother D resurrects the review he produced of the film's soundtrack album (from way back in Episode 53), and Need-a-Nickname Scott - when he's not dishing the news in the Zombie Beat - takes a look at the original screenplay for the film. A few friends of the show and Mail Order Zombie Family Members also call in their thoughts on the film. And because Brother D both called Miss Bren's bluff and had his own bluff called, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs also gets the Mail Order Zombie treatment (and the Family Movie Night podcast helped out with that!). After the Feedback Discussion (was that . . . Honeydew . . . ?), we'll flash black to this past summer's Famous Monsters of Filmland Convention for the Day of the Dead panel (featuring Mark Tierno, Terry Alexander, Gary Klar, Joe Pilato, Michael Gornick; moderated by Billy Graham) courtesy of Need-a-Nickname Scott and his wife Tracey.
151 12/16/10 This is the last "regular" episode of Mail Order Zombie of 2010, and Brother D tackles the holiday season by reviewing two Christmas-themed zombie movies - Silent Night, Zombie Night (dir. Sean Cain) and Santa Claus Versus the Zombies (dir. Gary Bonilla). To not get too ho-ho-ho'ed out, Brother D turns to Need-a-Nickname Scott, who joins him for a review of Death of the Dead (dir. Gary King), and then rocks a solo review of Stag Night of the Dead (dir. Neil Jones). Four zombie movie reviews in one episode? It's a Christmas miracle. And you know who else is a miracle? Miss Bren. She braves the backlog of Feedback in this week's Feedback Discussion. Another miracle? Brother D and Miss Bren manage to make it through the Feedback Discussion without COMPLETELY derailing the show.
