World Zombie Day  -

October 7th, 2011


Great news for the living dead! Tomorrow, October 8th is World Zombie Day. A day for flesh-eating devotees to get together, rub decaying limbs and discuss some gnawing issues.

Things like… skin care, flavoring the homeless and whether or not it’s permissible for a famished zombie to eat a post coital corpse after a necrophiliac has had its way with the body. Short answer? Bon appétit! 

What about werewolves, vampires and mummies, you ask? Phuck ‘em, let ‘em get their own day.

Participants in the 2010 New Jersey Zombie Walk in Asbury Park. It’s currently a Guinness World Record for — you guessed it — the most participants in a zombie walk. Until this year



I like the zombies being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.

George A. Romero, writer/director, Night of the Living Dead

We always thought Freddie Krueger was a blue-collar monster. Dude had only one sweater and it was hideous.


noun.     1. metal walking aid.     2. slang term for a zombie in AMC’s excellent TV series The Walking Dead.     3. Texas ranger.



Before agreeing to direct the music video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” director John Landis insisted that the zombie background dancers work with a choreographer for two weeks, a demand that was unprecedented at the time.


The List

Our Favorite Zombies

The Zombies (band) 1960s English rock band most famous for their hits “She’s Not There,” and “Time of the Season.” By the way, ladies, “it’s the time of the season for loving.”
The Zombie (cocktail) A classic Tiki drink from the 1950s made with pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, brandy, three kinds of rum and… “I can’t feel my face!”
Sheri Moon Zombie (babe) Actress and wife to rocker/film director Rob Zombie. The scariest thing about her?  Rob has yet to put her in a nude scene.
Zombie (song) By the 90s Irish rock band the Cranberries. A little ditty about a few militant Catholics and protestants not sharing the love.
Zombieland (movie) A must-see whether you dig the horror genre or not. Hilarious and action-packed. Pass the Twinkies!

Are we dressing up like zombies tomorrow? Hell no, we have lives, but we may blast some of their tunes and suck down a few of their namesake cocktails.

Oh, we’ll also be watching some college football. Here’s to hoping Alabama sucks like Dracula on Saturday. Go Vols! Cover the spread like the zombie apocalypse in Shaun of the Dead.
