View Full Version : Very, very OT: Frightfest zombie walk

07-10-2007, 01:39 PM
Hi all,

I'm posting this from the movie mailing list I'm on since it seemed like such a cool idea, but not only is it absolutely nothing to do with LightWave, it's also very geographically precise in that it will only apply to any Londoners or people attending the Frightfest horror film festival there this summer. This post is from the list's Jason Pyke:

"Hey all...

So, I've mentioned this to one or two people now, and everyone seems
to think it's a good idea, so it's time to put some plans in motion
and get to work on trying to make the World Record for the biggest
ever gathering of Zombies (currently standing at 894 I believe, for a
gathering at the Monroeville Mall).

On the Monday of FrightFest (27th August), The Zombie Diaries will be
screening at 11am, and to celebrate the screening, I'm currently
trying to organise a huge Zombie Walk which will lead straight into
the screening.

I'm still working on all the details, but the walk will take place
from 9.30am-10.30am, finishing with a mass gathering in Leicester

The idea hopefully, is that most FrightFesters will come to the event
that day in zombie make-up (as elaborate as you like, from full on
latex designs, all the way down to basic white face paint and a spot
or two of blood).

I'm currently approaching all the UK zombie groups too (from
terror4fun.com through to fleshmob.co.uk - check them out for make-up
ideas), and am receiving a lot of positive response, so thought it
was time to make the official announcement on the Frightfest boards
(Paul, Ian and Alan all know and are all behind the idea).

I'll be finalising the details over the coming weeks, but in the
meantime, please feel free to spread the word (through myspace and
any other means necessary), and hopefully together we can make the
World's largest ever gathering of zombies, and bring some added
publicity to both The Zombie Diaries and FrightFest, and with a bit
of luck, even make it onto Channel 4....!"

If you take part, or you spot a zombie do take pics and post them here! :)

When I spot a zombie I don't have the time for taking pics...
