The Dead Can’t Dance in Wichita

22 May

deadposter The Dead Cant Dance in Wichita30 – 40 extras were out pretending to be zombies (NB: don’t do that outside Zombie Command HQ) in Wichita a few days ago for the upcoming zombie film – The Dead Can’t Dance.

The film focuses on a group of 3 Native Americans who are immune to the virus that’s turning everyone else into zombies.

Dax Wildhorse knew this wasn’t going to be a good day.But it should have been. This was the day that he was driving his nephew, Eddie — who he has raised — off to college. Along with his brother — Eddie’s estranged father, Ray — the three of them stop at a gas station to replenish more than their gas tank.And that’s when it happens. With a gust of wind, everyone around them suddenly drops dead. But they are somehow immune to what’s killing everyone. Is it because of their Native American blood? Is it because their people were here in the beginning and this is now the end?But they don’t have time to ask questions. Stranded in the country, young Eddie becomes terribly ill. And that’s not the worst of their problems. As they take refuge in a remote school, the men encounter some weird people — really, really weird. Almost zombie-like, even. And that’s not cool.

As these modern-day warriors try to fight off the newly undead, they must put aside their differences to survive. Because, as Dax said: No, this wasn’t a good day at all. But will there be another?

Potential actors were given the task of doing a zombie characterization exercise which is basically acting like a zombie. They we’re looking for the “traditional zombie” variety, i.e., slow and dumb (think “Shaun of the Dead” and “Night of the Living Dead”).

Boston Police Vigilant for Zombie Bites

21 May

Racoon City officers could do a lot worse than look towards Boston Police’s innovative use of Twitter to inform the public of potential zombie related hazards.

Yesterday morning the Boston Police reported

Hmm, sounds suspicious and is definitely something you should look out for when the zombies do come. Twitter user willcady thought the same thing.

Luckily it wasn’t the first wave of the Zombocalypse and Boston Police were quick to reply with

Two comforts can be taken from this. 1) You still have time to prepare and 2) Boston City police know what to look for in a zombie bite!

I wonder if London Met have the same level of awareness? :s
