Zombies have made their way into a lot of people’s hearts, and brains. The zombie sub-culture has spread as far and wide as an actual zombie pandemic. Where did this “infection” start? Well when you have movies like the Evil Dead franchise, how can you not get infected? Low budget horror films that aren’t trying to make themselves become “the next big movie” inadvertently make names for themselves through their comedy and ability to laugh at themselves. But who doesn’t want to be the next big movie and make millions of dollars?
After the first Evil Dead movie hit theaters in 1981 Michael Jackson came out with Thriller 2 years later, breaking down musical barriers and making the best music video of all time. This was a HUGE moan and shuffle forward for zombie culture, and everywhere people were learning the choreography to the Thriller dance. Since the upwards crawl of the zombie culture, the Guinness Book of World Records has recognized records such as the first mathematical model for surviving a zombie attack and, of course, the largest Thriller dance.
The zombie sub-culture is growing every year and it’s fun to take part in. Zombie walks take place in nearly every major city, are a great social outing, and are relatively harmless. If you have a zombie walk organized near you I recommend you go out and have some fun, drink some beer, and be entertained. Just remember to have some sort of zombie-related makeup or accessory on or you’re bound to get blood on your favorite shirt.
