Zombie puppy

28 dogs later...

This is how it all starts, folks. We’re talking about an adorable puppy that rose from the dead and then BAM! Zombie apocalypse. Seriously, the rise of the decidedly less adorable dead can’t be far behind. And you can bet they won’t be satisfied with a little cuddle and some kibble.

Last supper

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel full.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
The problem with the end of the world is not all the volcanoes spewing lava and the plagues of locusts, frogs and (wild guess, here) wildebeests. Sure, the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse and 76 Trombones and probably Nic Cage as Ghost Rider are bad, but you know what’s worse?

Rogue River / The Collapsed

All washed up, all fall down.


Horror

Rod Lott
Two new direct-to-DVD horror thrillers begin with much promise, but fizzle before they’re able to provide any sizzle.

Hell

The future’s so bleak, I gotta wear shades.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Cinema’s current master of disaster, Roland Emmerich (2012), produced but did not write or direct Hell, a post- apocalyptic film smaller in scope than what the man is used to, yet better crafted.

Apocalypse soon?


CFN

Gazette staff
We at CFN have always figured that one reason Sen. Jim Inhofe enjoys such strong voter support is that a hefty chunk of the electorate shares his views that manmade climate change is rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish.

The Day

‘Day’ for naught.


Thriller

Rod Lott
So many Republicans took the news of President Obama’s re-election to such an illogical extreme, they took to Facebook and Twitter to warn the apocalypse was nigh, and you’d better grab all the guns you can. It’s almost as if they want societal collapse to happen. If they view The Day, however, they may rethink their stance, because the movie makes post-apocalyptic life look deathly boring.

Doomsday Book

The end of the world is two-thirds terrific.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Not based on Connie Willis' seminal sci-fi novel of the same name, Doomsday Book is preoccupied not with time travel, but the world's end. Telling three separate stories, the Korean film comes from acclaimed directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel). As with all anthologies, results vary; ultimately, this one ends up as two-thirds great.
