Product Description

From the Back Cover

Fresh brains roasting on an open fire . . .

Outside the temperature's dropping. The snow is falling, blanketing the world in white. Sleigh bells are jingling. Soon it will be that most wondrous time of the year!

That time of flesh-devouring zombie horror!

Yes, Christmas is on its way—and all the little boys and ghouls are dreaming of stockings filled with candied eyes and bleeding body parts. You'd better watch out! Santa Claws is coming to town—and he knows who's been naughty, who's been naughtier . . . and who'll taste best with a nice glass of Chianti!

In celebration of this merry macabre season, we present a peerless compendium of more than two dozen of the most soul-stirring, brain-boiling carols composed specifically for the decomposing. Holiday favorites such as “I Saw Mommy Chewing Santa Claus,” “Deck the Halls with Parts of Wally,” and “We Three Spleens” are guaranteed to lift the spirits of the lumbering, shuffling undead and their temporarily still breathing meals-to-be. So put down your gore-splattered baseball bats and raise your voices in song! And sing loudly—to drown out all the screaming.

3.0 out of 5 stars One for the true zombie enthusiast probably 27 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a collection of 30 Christmas carols rewritten to include lyrics about zombies. That's basically it, which is fine as that's what the blurb on the back cover claims it is. Some are funnier than others, and the links to the original songs are a bit tenuous, but it's not a bad effort. There are also a large number of illustrations of fairly good quality that depict some aspect of each song.

OK, it's not really in the spirit of proper zombie fiction, but it serves its purpose in being a fun gift or novelty item for horror fans. It's not hilarious, but it's not bad, and original as far as I know (and I've seen a lot of books about zombies in my time).

2.0 out of 5 stars Fresh brains roasting on an open fire 25 Aug 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Ah, the humorous novelty of turning classic stories into zombie/vampire/werewolf-laden horrors... and apparently it also applies to time-honored Christmas carols. Michael P. Spradlin obviously had a lot of fun adapting traditional yuletide songs for fans of the undead, but some of them definitely fall short.

Basically Spradlin takes your basic traditional Christmas carols -- "We Three Kings," "The Christmas Song," "Good King Wenceslas," "Here Comes Santa Claus," etc -- and inserts references to zombies, viruses, brains and general undead mayhem. The results are pretty gruesome and wonderfully tasteless.

The results... are mixed. Some of these songs are pretty entertaining ("In the meadow, we can beg for mercy/They've already eaten Parson Brown"), but a lot of them just don't work. When in doubt, Spradlin just inserts random references to brains, body parts and zombie viruses, even if they don't make sense. Example: "Brightly shown (sp) the moon that night/Though the virus cruel" -- so is the virus up in the sky?

And honestly, you can't really sing some of them because the zombiefied lines don't scan with the rest of the song -- "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" is turned into "I'm dream ing of an undead Christmas," and "O tidings of comfort and joy" is turned into "O, eating brains brings us comfort and joy." The extra syllables just mean that they don't work.

"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies: A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols" is a fun little read, as long as you don't demand too much of your spoof songs... or expect to be able to sing them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gleefully macabre festive fun 19 Dec 2009
By CJ
Format:Paperback
I'd never pictured Rudolph eating the brains of the other reindeer, but this is book is a great laugh for can imagine the tunes of the carols put to very different words.

The illustrations are fun and there's some very cheeky new imaginings of Christmas favourites. I laughed quite a bit and I expect the relative I've bought if for will as well.

This is a one trick pony, but it does its trick very well.
