Almost Human (1977) AKA Shockwaves

From previous posts you have no doubt stumbled upon my quest to discover the best Nazi-Zombie movie of all time. After having done some study on the topic, critics have suggested that Shockwaves (not sure why it is also called Almost Human…) is up there as one of the most popular/famous, cult-classic Zombie-Nazi films of…

Apocalyptic Comics by RobotHugs

I recently started riffling through the archives of  http://www.robot-hugs.com which is a web comic primarily featuring work on the topics of LGBT, Relationships and Depression/Anxiety issues and cats – worth a read if those things interest you. However, among these comics I also found an interesting little selection of apocalyptic works, which I saved and…

Apocalyptic Party Games!

Here at Ablogalypse we know the importance of spending quality time with your family and loved ones, especially at Christmas. Which is why, on the eve of Christmas, I sit alone in my room, thinking of things to write on a blog about the end of all things. But why must the two be separate?…

Gene Wolfe: The Fifth Head of Cerberus

-Review by Paul Ewbank-   Much like its enigmatic title, The Fifth Head of Cerberus, acclaimed writer Gene Wolfe’s second novel and widely considered one of his best, is a real puzzle.

Well you can’t get much more dystopian sounding than a film called…

GallowWalkers (2012)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- GallowWalkers is a zombie horror/ Wild West crossover film starring Wesley Snipes released straight to DVD in 2012. Based on that information alone I should’ve been able to guess how terrible it was going to be. I think our reasons for watching it were that the trailer made it look pretty…

Zombie Lake (1981)

When a review I was reading claimed that Dead Snow (2009) was only the 3rd best Zombie Nazi film of all time I decided it was high time I watched the supposed top two. Now, as a massive fan of Dead Snow, I had high hopes for Zombie Lake, with it being placed at Number…

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies (2009)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Haven’t reviewed a game in quite a while. I realise that in trying to do reviews of post-apocalyptic and dystopian games I’m at quite a disadvantage by not owning either a PS3 or Xbox 360. All the big titles like Gears of War or Fallout or Half Life are utterly unknown…
