Zombie walk celebrates Pittsburgh’s horror history

From The Tartan Online:

Zombies face great obstacles when trying to breach a city like Pittsburgh. With its three rivers, Pittsburgh becomes almost zombie-proof — for everyone knows that zombies cannot swim... or so goes the lore of George Romero’s 2005 film Land of the Dead. But as fans of the movies know, we may not be as safe as we think.

The Monroeville Mall, which was the set of Romero’s film Dawn of the Dead, will again be home to a host of undead on October 29.

Mark Menold, who hosts the local horror program The “It’s Alive” Show on WBGN, will lead what he hopes to be a record-breaking number of zombies into the mall — if all goes well, the place will be swarming with them. He is attempting to gather enough zombies together to break a Guinness World Record for most decaying corpses gathered in one place; so if you were planning on a new pair of Pumas to go with your Halloween costume, you may want to bring along your AK-47.

On second thought, leave the arsenal at home. The zombies in the mall this time around will be relatively harmless — just a group of horror fans dressed to kill. Or rather, dressed to eat brains. This will be the second zombie walk to take place in Pittsburgh lately; the last was in the South Side on September 22.
