How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse

11 Oct

Zombie Invasion UK

People mocked us for talking about zombies and a possible apocalypse as though it was something that could never happen, but this latest heat map suggests an outbreak is happening in the United Kingdom as we speak!

The new Zombie Invasion site has been designed to help Brits survive the zombie infection this Halloween. Users can zoom in on the zombie heat map to find the feeding frenzies across the country and also plot the best areas to run and hide or escape overseas.

The secret is most definitely out and the zombies are mutating – fast! The heat map is driven by sales data of zombie related outfits and accessories from independent UK fancy dress retailer, highlighting the areas of the UK that have caught the zombie bug in readiness for Halloween.

As well as being able to use the map to plot your escape, Zombie Invasion also gives you four useful tips to survive a possible attack. From good running trainers and a baseball bat to a face mask and a clever zombie disguise, you can avoid becoming part of the offal trail!

Take a look at the zombie invasion in the UK and see if you have enough time to save yourself…


Virgin Trains Advise Not To Go Zombie

20 Aug

Virgin Trains - Don't Go Zombie

To go along with their series of posters like that above Virgin Trains have made a Google Street View game where players can navigate through the streets of London killing zombies along the way.

You can play the game at any location available on street view (try your own address!) and the highest scoring players will be entered into a draw to win first class travel with Virgin Trains.

One of the more entertaining features of the game is that once a player dies, their Facebook profile picture can be zombified and launched into the game. They then have the option to gain support from friends by posting a ‘rescue me’ message on their wall.

Also, later this summer there will be some special guest Zombies including Sir Richard Branson, who you will be able to kill or rescue (depending on your preference!)

To play it you can head on over to Don’t Go Zombie

We do however think that this kid could do with better supervision

During the hour-long event, moderator Eric Moro of will lead panelists in a discussion about their experience shooting the series in Atlanta and the process of bringing Kirkman’s comic book to life on the small screen, among other topics, followed by an exclusive first look at THE WALKING DEAD and a Q&A session with attendees.

THE WALKING DEAD panel will be complemented by a number of on-the-ground activities taking place throughout Comic-Con:

Attendees will have an opportunity to get “zombified” by visiting THE WALKING DEAD booth and putting themselves into a zombie scene from the series via a touch screen; AMC will email the photo to them.

AMC will distribute limited edition “The Walking Dead” series posters from internationally recognized movie poster artist Drew Struzan (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Blade Runner, Hellboy and more).

An autograph session will take place with Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Frank Darabont, Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero and Gale Anne Hurd in the Image Comic Books booth.

AMC will distribute limited edition THE WALKING DEAD series buttons.

AMC will have THE WALKING DEAD walkers around the convention center and booth.

Zombie Walk World Record Set By ZomBcon

5 Jul

Zombie Walk World Record

As we told you last week, ZomBcon’s made a world record attempt for the largest zombie walk on July 3rd.

The Red, White & Dead zombie walk managed an impressive 4,233 zombies, narrowly beating out The Big Chill’s 4,026, set last year in England to take the world record, supervised by the Guiness Book of World Record officials.

However such a small margin means that it’s still very possible to be beaten (the organisers wanted over 8,000 to make sure they could keep a hold of the record) and I’d be surprised if this title doesn’t change hands again very soon.

Still, congratulations to the organisers and we look forward to seeing what the main ZomBcon event holds in October.
