The Stiff: Chapter 3: Page 114

It was a busy weekend — I helped a friend move, saw another two friends I hadn’t seen in years (we all live in Seattle, but it’s never worked out schedule-wise before), and managed to ship about half of the 540 “Map of Zombies” posters I have lined up in the queue. Alas, I wasn’t able to get them all out on Saturday, and now the post office rates have gone up! Sigh….

I still have a ton of poster-tube taping and addressing to do, and since I was in the neighborhood of Scarecrow Video, I couldn’t resist renting some more zombie movies to watch while I’m taping like some kind of “American Zombie” stockroom zombie slave. My big double feature for today is “The Child”, aka “Zombie Child” (1977), and “Wake Wood”, a recent British feature that sounds kind of like “Pet Sematary.” I had wanted to also rent the obscure Spanish film “Rest in Pieces” (1987) but unfortunately it’s never been released on DVD; even Scarecrow Video only had a VHS copy. It sounds super-weird, although sadly also not very good, according to Glenn Kay’s indispensable “Zombie Movies” book which I’ve been taking as my Gospel. And “Life After Beth” still hasn’t been released, and “The Last Days on Mars” is stuck in the limbo between its brief theatrical run and some kind of DVD/streaming. Oh well, they can’t stay in Limbo forever…

NEXT UPDATE: Wednesday!
