iCNN: Zombies Invade New York City

Caryn La Greca writes and snaps about the zombie invasion last Saturday on iCNN:

Brains, blood and gore were seen in Manhattan as Zombies invaded New York City at the 2012 Zombiecon Apocalypto Ultimo. The animated corpses joined each other at the Iguana to begin their invasion throughout the streets of NYC where no-one was safe from the walking dead. There was no where to run, no where to hide. A bloody teddy hung from the mouth of a once beautiful young woman as she and the other zombies shuffled their way underground to attack the New York Subway lines. I am glad I made it home alive despite having zombie blood on my hands.

The Walking Dead Escape in Philadelphia, PA

Fright freaks in PA have something cool to look forward to this year right before Halloween – the Walking Dead Escape. Scheduled for 10/27 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, this is a costumed and horror themed obstacle course challenge where humans are invited to test their survival skills in intense zombie-outbreak conditions. You can register as a human or a zombie, or even a team. It looks like a lot of fun, though it’s not free – $80 and up to participate. Anyone from NYC going? Send us some photos!
