Zombies Everywhere

I stopped into my local–with “local” being a relative term–Spirit Halloween store this past week. Per usual, the zombie was well represented. My favorite piece was this animatronic zombie that got caught in some electrical cables. Bzzt! Sure, one could argue that the effigy isn’t meant to represent a zombie, just some dude who got electrocuted, but come on. It’s Spirit Halloween. Even if that was the case, the electrocuted dude would surely come BACK as a zombie!

Check out this photo of me with Zombie Spider-Man, taken at Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum in Boulder City, Nevada.

And inside the Museum was lurking Zombie Michael Jackson!

And, if that wasn’t enough zombie goodness, there was a sweet NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD tableau–except that tableaus are generally not supposed to move, and this one is animatronic! Also on display at the Monster Museum were life-sized mannequins of the alien zombie creatures from John Carpenter’s classic THEY LIVE.

Lastly this week, two words that should never go together are “sexy” and “zombie.” That twain should never meet. And yet
