Zombie Stomp

Night of the Living Dead. A cult classic and one of my all time favorite flicks.

For decades the zombie has lived in the shadow of it's more popular horror cousins, Dracula and Frankenstein, but lately he's been creeping to the forefront.

If you haven't been paying attention then the Zombie Walk is probably alien to you but let me tell ya - it's sweeping the nation. From California to Oklahoma to Florida zombie fans are coming out in droves - dressed to kill.

Also known as the zombie march, zombie crawl, zombie mob and zombie shuffle - over 50 cities participated during the World Zombie Day on October 26, 2008. "Zombies" are encouraged to act the part by dragging themselves along slowly and communicating with grunts and groans.

These zombies made the news when, on October 27, 2007, Thrill San Diego & Zombie Walk partnered up to host a world-record-breaking dance to "Thriller" in cooperation with Thrill the World, which included over 80 cities around the world performing the choreography simultaneously.

And why are they doing this? Hell, I don't know. Because they can, I guess. Maybe their just tired of being ignored. After all, zombies are people too.


  1. Funny that you post this today... ZombieWalk:SanDiego just held yet another walk on Valentine's Day! Our next one will be at Comic-Con, if anyone feels like coming to check out the fun for themselves :)

  2. Wonder bar! Honestly I did not know you just had a walk. I must be tuned into the zombies huh? Looks like a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing more zombies coming out of the woodwork in the future ;)
