Examining The Dead: All-Star Zombie Apocalypse Survival Team

It’s back to the regular Examining The Dead format this month. Here are the show notes so you can follow along while listening to Episode 15. Hosts Crazy Train and Seeth welcome the debuting Clint from The Geekdig Podcast to talk all things horror in TV, movies, and video gaming.


Gun Media, the publisher of the Friday The 13th video game, have officially announced a free Single Player Story Mode DLC expansion. This means you can play the game without any multiplyer necessary. What kind of scenario could it be?? And who woulld you play as, Jason or a Counselor?

Netflix has announced an August 25th premiere date for their original horror project Death Note.

In other video game news, rumors persist that Valve may be working on a Left 4 Dead 3 game with an updated version of the classic No Mercy Map. While there have been no official statements, that hasn’t stopped the rumors from picking up steam. (See what we did there?). What could a third Left For Dead game bring to the table?

Also in TV news, Train gives a preview of the second season of Preacher. Not only has the setting changed from Texas to New Orleans, but we’re getting a lot of character development with Jesse, Tulip, and The Saind Of Killers

Back in the video game world, the classic horror game Splatterhouse has been released for Nintendo Switch as part of a multigame bundle.

Finally, Train, Clint and Seth talk The Dark Tower movie, which will be in theaters by the time you hear this.


First up, Clint and Train give a long form review of The Friday The 13th Game, and air their grievances about the server issues in the opening weeks of play. Thankfully, IllFonic and Gun Media were very proactive when trying to fix the connection issues for players.

As far as the game goes, it’s an awesome game when it’s working. Train and Clint share stories about fun moments in the game. And how there are cool subtle elements to it, like the inability to communicate with other players unless you are in close proximity within the game. And of course there’s the kills.

The other entry in The Gruesome Twosome is horror talk coming out of San Diego Comic Con.


Into The Crystal Ball has a fun “geek out” discussion where Train, Clint, and Seth help assemble an All Star Zombie Apocalypse Survival Team, starring characters from movies, TV, and video games alike.

There were two main qualifiactions for team selection. The characters had to be directly part of a zombie related title, so no Terminator or Batman. And of course, the character had to have actual experience fighting zombies. Aslo, only one character from each title. So no Rick Grimes AND Daryl Dixon.

This is the type of fun geek-centric talk podcasting was seemingly made for.
