Best of the Dark Side: 13 Deadliest Zombie Links

The zombie craze took me by surprise, so I only added a Zombie subcategory in late 2008. It was terribly fun to research! I was initially surprised at how many high quality, professional style sites sprung up. I didn't even try to keep up with all the regional city "Zombie walks" that were going on, though I probably should have tried harder.

1. Zombies and Toys

This blog's niche focus is on collectible and toy items with a zombie theme. There are also a few posts on zombies in upcoming TV shows and movies.

2. Library of the Living Dead

Forums for fans and writers of zombie fiction.

3. The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse

A professional writer's blog of critiques and commentary on zombie movies, books, and games.

4. Lost Zombies Social Network

This community has a shared goal and vision: to create the world’s first community generated zombie documentary. Members share photos and videos to that end.

5. Zombie Command

A well maintained blog with news, reviews, survival tips and humor.

6. Shoot for the Head

Zombie movie news, zombie flash games, zombie trailers, news about zombie games, and some zombie forums.


This incredibly devoted blogger posts an amazing amount of news every day. Also zombie trailers and some game news.

8. Crawl of the Dead

A central portal for planning, arranging and announcing zombie walks and zombie pub crawls. There's also a forum available.

9. ZombieSlash

A blog about "zombie crossover culture." Zombies used to be a horror genre niche, but they're now showing up in pop culture very frequently. Currently blogging about zombies and dubstep, a new zombie flash game, a funny "Eat, Brains, Love" spoof poster, and info on the "Walking Dead" TV series that's airing soon.

10. Zombies Are Coming

A survival themed blog, with posts on scavenging, being prepared, and zombie scenarios. There are book reviews and there's a post on "Lessons from 'The Colony'" (the Discovery Channel show).

11. Zombie Survival

A Livejournal community for zombie fans. The posts are mostly about movies and TV shows, but there are also some humorous graphics and funny posts too.

12. Tweets of the Dead

A great Twitter stream to read every day if you want to keep up with the latest zombie news.

13. BuyZombie.Com

At first glance, due to the name, I expected this to be just a zombie affiliate site. (Nothing wrong with that, I run a couple affiliate sites too!) But this blog offers zombie movie trailers, game news, book parodies, reviews, and news. I found every one of the posts pretty interesting, so I think I'll be back to visit here often.
