Zombie Dramas, Songs and Comics?

Exit Humanity

Exit Humanity is not your run-of-the-mill zombie film. I was surprised that it turned out to be more of a drama than a horror film set shortly after the US Civil War - with the undead added into the conflict.

The film is based on the fictional memoirs of Edward Young, a soldier who has to deal with the horrors of a post-apocalyptic America ten years after the war - losing his family shortly afterwards due to a mysterious disease that reanimates the dead.

He decides to go on a journey to find answers to the terrible plague that has swept across the land and ultimately, to find answers to the doubts he has for himself.

Exit Humanity captured what The Walking Dead (the TV series, not the comics - those are still awesome) failed to do - human conflict set against a world with inhuman foes.

Junk of the Heart (The Kooks)

This is an album from the English band The Kooks, which I first found when I was running along the dark side of YouTube.

The album has fourteen tracks, and most are incredibly catchy - not a surprising quality from British bands.

25 Lives (Tongari/@madaoba)

Lastly, see the work of Tongari entitled 25 Lives. I don't think I've seen anything this simple and awesome since Arnold Arre's After Eden.
