I know Nick Derosa didn't dig up a corpse, but the level of detail on this mummified body did make the thought cross my mind.

Ashes to Ashes

I'm appalled that Burned Raven Tales would make this vial of vampire ashes available to the general public.  One drop of blood, just one, and you have a full blown outbreak of vampirism on your hands.

I Did Nazi This Coming...

Over ten years ago I posted a video to YouTube entitled "Nazi Reanimation Propaganda Film".  It was a recut of the faux propaganda film from the 2008 movie "Outpost", one of the better entries in the Nazi Zombie sub-genre of walking dead pictures.  This is what you'll see if you go to see that video today:

Here's the email I received explaining why:

The YouTube Team
The only rationale I can think of is that the video shows a Nazi flag and troops in SS uniforms.  I understand that those are troubling images, but that's all they are.  Images.  I can authoritatively state that reanimated Nazi soldiers from WW II are not about to rise up and establish the Eternal Fourth Reich.  On the other hand, I would pay good money to see a big-budget miniseries based on that exact premise.

From the Mountains of Madness

Jennifer brings us this look at the excellent Elder Thing artifact from artist Nat Wiland.
