Zombies Ahoy!

If you’ve been to a horror convention in the last few years you’ve surely noticed that The Walking Dead has almost completely taken over the scene, so much so that the show spawned an entire convention of its own. Now the folks behind that con are setting sail with an official Walking Dead cruise. 

I’m surprised someone hasn’t made a movie about this yet, or a movie with this premise, I should say: Zombies on a cruise ship. Think about it, you’ve got a group of victims trapped on a boat in the middle of the ocean, and then zombies break out and start rampaging. The engines are damaged and the ship adrift. The radio and other communications don’t work. Where would you go? Jump overboard and you drown. There would literally be nowhere to run. You’d just have to lock yourself in a bulkhead or cabin and try to keep the dead from getting in, while you desperately pray some passing ship will arrive in time to help you. There is mucho possibility here.

You may not be able to participate in this scenario in real life—and why would you want to?—but you can experience the next best thing. You can go on a scenic cruise to the Bahamas with PRETEND zombies. The actors who portray pretend zombies, that is, or the humans on the run from and fighting against them. The Walker-Stalker Cruise will feature cast members from the wildly popular THE WALKING DEAD TV series, and it sets sail in January of next year. All aboard!
