Death Troopers

When an Imperial prison barge, the Purge, suddenly malfunctions, a group of Imperials are forced to board a nearly deserted Star Destroyer close by for spare parts.  But what they bring back is far worse than anything they had previously imagined; a deadly virus that infects and kills most of the occupants of the Purge.  Kale and Trig Longo, alone ever since their father died aboard the prison barge, are some of those survivors, and along with an Imperial medic and other various characters, they are forced to fight for their very lives against an army of the undead in Death Troopers.

Check out how, being an avid horror fan, I felt about the first official Star Wars horror novel after the break!

Zombieland (2009)

Since I’ve mainly been posting movies which some people might consider less “mainstream,” I thought today I would go ahead and post up a horror movie which I’m sure most people have seen (or at least heard of).

Morbid: Chapter 4

The human tramped on his hand, oblivious to the plight of the creature below him. Xeros lie on the ground, ichor spilling out of his guts onto the frozen Earth. His consciousness was fading, more from inactivity than approaching death. It would take some serious trampling before that would come. It was possible he would even be dragged back. Continue reading

ALTA Special Review: Red Harvest by Joe Schreiber
