Am I right? Can I get a hell, yeah? Or whatever, just sit there silently in front of your computer screen, staring deadpan. Okay, so zombies don’t exactly exist in real life (and lets hope I didn’t just jinx us all). But fictional zombies offer us endless entertainment, and I thought I’d grace you with my TOP THREE WAYS TO ZOMBIE UP YOUR LIFE!
1: Harder to Find Than a Zombie Cure… It’s the Prequel to Warm Bodies!
Yes, it exists! I didn’t realise until, by chance, I stumbled upon Isaac Marion’s Website. That’s how secret it is apparently (or maybe I just don’t pay attention to anything). Warm Bodies, for those who aren’t aware, is an awesome zombie book, recently made into a movie, about a zombie who falls in love with a girl. I know a sequel is on its way, but how could I not know about the prequel!!!! The New Hunger is out now, with the paperback coming out later this year.
2: Get Fit as Zombie Hordes Chase You (Fictional Ones, That Is)
Now this is some serious coolness. Zombies, Run! is a fitness App for your smartphone. When you go for a run (or walk) you can use this app to listen to a creepy zombie story unfold through your earphones. You are now part of a zombie apocalypse. Your name? Runner Five. You’ve been tasked with building a zombie safe town, and the further you run the more items you’ll collect to use in the game. You can also get chased by zombie hordes, in which you have literally have to sprint for your life so you don’t get caught. Sometimes you survive, sometimes you don’t, and sometimes you look really freaked out and people wonder what’s wrong with you as you run/walk/scream past. Check out their trailer video:
3: Actually Get Chased by Zombies and Hope You Survive
Run For Your Lives is a 5k run in America that involves actually being chased by ZOMBIES (or people dressed up as zombies), and if they catch you enough, you will (pretend) die. If that’s not scary enough, some of the obstacles include a blood pit, a maze with zombies wandering within, and a smoke house where you have to dodge zombies in the dark… with smoke… and electric shocks. I know what you’re thinking, right? AWESOME. Call me a mind reader, what can I say?
And what’s cooler is that you there is a choice to be either a runner OR a zombie. Check out their video:
Even if you don’t live in America (or don’t like running) you can always watch a whole lot of competitors attempt the run on YouTube. Gosh, it looks like hard work.
Anyway, reader, go forth and enjoy your zombified day.
P.S I am in no way affiliated with any of these things/events.
P.P.S I’m pretty surprised I’ve managed to go a whole post without mentioning the book I wrote, which is zombie related. Oh, what book you ask? Well, it’s called… AAAAH just kidding. I wouldn’t do that. But seriously, check the Books link above if you dare. Mwahahaha.
