Free Zombie Training This Weekend

October 28, 2011

Is the horror genre recession proof? Paranormal Activity 3 is number one at the box office and just grossed $52.6M in its first week. The force of horror is undeniable as it consistently thrives despite never quiet doing well with critics. Why are we so fascinated with ghosts, boogiemen, ghouls, and creeps? Well, if you’ve ever wanted to star in a horror flick, or if you’ve been dying to make like the undead and take over downtown, now’s your chance to get in on some serious zombie action. The Long Beach Zombie Walk will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2011—and they’re marching to break the world record! The current world record stands at a staggering 4,800 zombies in Seattle, WA. In Long Beach this weekend, the gates will open at 2 p.m. where music, vendors, food, and over a hundred make-up artists are eagerly awaiting to turn you into a soulless corpse. The Dead Man’s After Party and haunted house might be worth teetering into as well. But it’s the Zombie Walk at 8 p.m. where you can help make world history.
