Watch the 7 Reasons Halloween Is Huge in 2009, Part 1 now, and check out part two on Thursday!
In the annals of actors behaving badly and then trying to explain their behavior, this ranks among one of the most hilarious explanations ever. A TMZ photographer who got too close to Harrelson claimed that the actor pushed him in the face and damaged his camera. Harrelson's excuse when questioned by police? "I wrapped a movie called Zombieland, in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character," Harrelson said in a statement. "With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie," he said. (My emphasis.) Actors have all the awesome excuses — imagine trying this one with the cops! Click here to read more.
"Zombies in area — run! Run for cold climates! The end is near!" Pranksters in Austin, TX, hacked into the electronic billboards normally used to warn drivers of construction ahead and replaced the messages with warnings of their imminent demise at the hands of bloodthirsty zombies. The hackers are still at large, or perhaps, being pulled apart limb from limb by Nazi Zombies from Hell! Click here to read more or watch the news clip below.
Some lucky lady has some really good friends — look at the amazing Hello Kitty Zombie cake they got her! It's crawling with candied maggots and surrounded with candied worms. It's hard to see in this picture, but there are even little zombies wandering around the cake cemetery. Ghoulish never looked so cute! Click here to see some more amazing pics.
This freaky-ass girl robot created by the Osaka University robotics department is making me rethink my love of robots. She's based on a 5-year-old (yeah, a 5-year-old zombie, maybe!) and could give that Chucky dude from Child's Play a run for his money. Ack! (Also guys, the horror movie music isn't helping your cause.)
This is an oldie but goodie. This scary lady is doing some version of zombie aerobics or yoga. So, if you'd like to be like her, by all means, watch and follow! Just don't come to get me afterwards, OK? Please?!
Zombies doing pretty much anything makes my day. (Except, of course, coming to get me!) But when they step up their game, step away from all the brains and entrails, and sing a rendition of Kansas's "Dust in the Wind"? I weep a little inside.
What's not to like? You can surf the Internet, check out books for free, stare at other patrons. . .and do a little zombie dance.
