Feeling secure in your home is one of the most important aspects of an enjoyable life. You don’t want to worry about vampires, werewolves, ghosts or the boogeyman coming to get you, but yet that’s something that creeps into the back of our mind from time to time. Like when you’re home alone on a stormy night or you hear something go bump in the night? We can try and convince ourselves there are no such things as monsters, but deep down we know that’s not the case.
Resident Evil: Retribution 3D comes out in theaters this week and is quite possibly one of the most overlooked successful film franchises. While hard core gamers are familiar with the series, what the average person may not realize is that original story line for Resident Evil focuses on one of the most famous homes ever featured in a video game: Resident Evil Mansion.
If you prefer blankets to swim trunks and skis to surfboards, then the castle at Winterfell from “Game of Thrones” might have piqued your interest if you were in the market for a cozy home (or hut) a few thousand years ago. The next nominee for “Outstanding Home in a Drama Series” is none other than Winterfell Castle, which is widely considered to be the capital of the North. Winterfell is located between the capital of the Seven Kingdoms (King’s Landing) and the dreaded “Wall” that keeps civilized society separate from Wildlings and very angry frozen zombies.

It’s almost Halloween and if you haven’t already you’ll start seeing more and more Halloween-related stories popping up, but this one caught my attention. You may recall a few months ago I blogged about a zombie proof house that was recently built to protect you against the impending zombie apocalypse. It is a beautiful home but also has the safety and security you need to shield you from the hunger of the undead. Today I discovered that building and shelter maker, Rocket Steel Buildings in Pennsylvania, is taking this concept to a new level by marketing their company as builder of Zombie Proof Buildings.
From The Walking Dead series on AMC to the popular casual game Plants vs. Zombies to the book Pride & Prejudice and Zombies (which is a great read by the way), the centuries old threat of Zombies is making a comeback. And one builder has prepared quite a home to protect those who feel that a zombie takeover may be an impending reality.
