The film follows the international phenomenon known as the ‘zombie walk’, and uncovers its origins, from the first ‘official’ zombie walk (with a mere six participants) to walks attracting more than 15,000 undead zealots.
Pineda’s on-the-street interviews offer insight into why people are attracted to these congregations. Highlighted with actors Norman Reedus (THE WALKING DEAD) and Eugene Clark (LAND OF THE DEAD), as well as makeup artist and director Tom Savini (GRINDHOUSE, DJANGO) and screenwriter John A. Russo (HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN), who worked with George A. Romero on the iconic movies NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and THE DAWN OF THE DEAD. (Not to mention our own Thea Munster!)
Ultimately, DEAD MEAT WALKING is a fun and riveting documentary that offers a unique focus on the extraordinary and ghoulish pastime that has devoured the imaginations of zombie fans of all ages.
SHOWTIME: Saturday, May 4th 2013 @ 3:30pm
Tickets & iInformation:
You need to pace yourself zombie. If you devour all of the fresh flesh for yourself, your fellow zombies might just rise up and over power you, leaving you with nothing. Take caution of your surroundings, you might just spot that living bag of flesh hiding behind that tree. Instead of them bashing your brain out, you could be gorging on theirs.
Gemini - Your energy levels are high zombie! You have a full belly, and the horde has been successful in finding a little community of survivors. Working as a team, you destroy their defenses and gorge on fresh flesh for days. Be thankful in this bountiful feeding, but be cautious! There might just be a sniper rifle pointing in your direction.
Cancer - You notice the horde is getting restless around you. Your numbers are thinning as brains become scarcer. Keep on moaning and shambling and you might just stumble upon a car load of survivors. Groan loudly at this find, and share the gorging with a fellow flesh eater, you might just find that they had their eye on you, or did it just fall out?
Leo - You are becoming angry with the current horde you have been shambling with. Don’t rage all over your fellow zombies, stumble off in another direction and trust your instincts when you hear something in that abandoned house over there. Go knock down the door, and you might just find an injured living morsel that doesn’t resist much to you gnawing on his brains.
Virgo - It has been days since you gorged on some flesh. You are starting to lose confidence in your shambling abilities. The living don’t seem as frightened anymore, instead they band together and take out half the horde in one fell swoop. Take a hint from those bags of brains, move as one and overpower them! Enjoy gnawing on the intestines of the chunky survivor, you earned it.
Libra - What’s that over there? Is it a fresh arm ready to be devoured? Shamble with speed before your fellow zombies spot it as well. You found this morsel, you deserve it for yourself. But be careful not to groan with too much delight, yes it may be tasty flesh but no one likes a gloater.
Scorpio - You are embracing your zombie ways. This groaning and shambling seems to suit you, and you seem pretty good at it. Don’t let your pride distract you though; you are headed for a trap set up by 2 survivors. Your arm gets caught, but just press on. Rip it off, shamble with speed and chew the brains out of those living hiding behind that fence nearby.
Sagittarius - Your flesh intake is becoming less and less as the horde grows. You moan loudly, losing speed and eventually you fall behind. Don’t be discouraged though. Without the mass of zombies at your side, you notice a tasty torso that has been barely touched. Go on zombie, gnaw on those organs, but don’t take too long. You need the horde just as much as the horde needs you.
Capricorn - A fellow zombie has been by your side since that last group of survivors you found days ago. You notice your insides get all in a knot when they groan a certain way. That could be because your insides are hanging on the outside. Be thankful for the company anyway and shamble together some more. You might just find gorging in a pair is worth your while.
Aquarius - There is a fence in front of you and your fellow zombies. It is big yes, but not hopeless. Push together, groan loudly and knock that obstacle down. Flesh is ready for the taking, so prepare to gorge like you’ve never gorge before. Go on zombie, eat the face off of that corpse over there, you deserve it.
Pisces - You can’t contain your anger towards your fellow zombies. They’ve lead you nowhere and haven’t found any victims for days. Instead of confronting the horde, moan silently for a while. You’ll have fresh flesh soon, and remember that if you were alone, those survivors would have overpowered you, instead of the horde overpowering them.
Aries - It feels like you have been walking in circles, zombie. Your groans are getting louder as your hunger for brains becomes overpowering. Take the initiative and shamble in another direction. You never know what might be around that corner, a tasty corpse perhaps? Go ahead, give it a gnaw and enjoy those barely chewed brains. You earned this find.
On Sunday April 21st a half dozen or so zombies from the Toronto Zombie Walk attended the dress rehearsal of Night of the Living Dead Live. This is one Zombie’s account of the night…
Drawn by the scent of a familiar feast, I shambled off the beaten path down a side street where I came upon an old theatre called Theatre Passe Muraille. I sensed that inside not only would I be joined with other living dead fiends in search of an easy victim – but I could tell that such a fresh feast was not far away. After wandering inside, I shambled up the stairs and merged into a small hoard of other zombies that were obviously drawn by the same familiar scent I was.
Little did we know it was a trap! A series of warm bodies came out, all identifying themselves as “Chris” and who began to herd us into a cage called the “Moan Zoan”. What was happening? Were we being damned to spend eternity unfed in our new cell?
The house lights went dim and a familiar smell filled the air… Barbara? Is that you?
It was!!! Not only was Barbara there, so was Johnny, Ben and all the old crew! Yes! It all made rotting sense … this is what drew us here. We tried with all the lifeless energy we had to grab them and eat them whenever they drew near our cage, but it turns out they were performing in some sort of production and one-by-one our urges to feast on their warm flesh turned into hysterical laughter and entertainment. Captivated by the clever story and brilliant execution – in the end we zombies simply gave up and set-up permanent shop in the Moan Zoan so we could enjoy the show and possibly feast on audience members that wandered too close to the cage.
We hope to see lots of living out at one of the shows from Friday April 26th to Sunday May 19th, 2013 and that they’ll wander by the Moan Zoan so we can have a snack.
