Halloween is around the corner, the Horde is back! Here is another edition of Albany’s very own Zombie Walk. The highlight of the Zombie Film Feast 3 took place at the Armory last Saturday, October 23rd, and gathered a dense crowd of Undead on a slow march to The Linda. The whole weekend featured many returning events, such as the Brain Eating contest, the Thriller Dance Off, the Senior Prom and the screening of Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead and Pontypool (a personal fav).

Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend any of it this year, and I had only 10 minutes to take some photos. Fortunately, this bloody mess was happening a block from my house. By the way, this is probably NSFW.

Hello. How you doin’?

Zombie Walk 2010 - Albany, NY - 10, Oct - 06.jpg

You *need* a Zombie Squad at a Zombie Walk. You know what you *don’t* need at a Zombie Walk? A fake gun that will get you in trouble with the local police.

Kudos, you actually spooked me. And my camera too, which was completely unable to focus on your… huh… face.

If you need to ask, yes, he actually ate his brother Mario.

Where was our proud, local Roller Derby team? (yes, Sin, I’m asking you). The Hellions of Troy were there :)

I don’t think she has your lucky number.

Congrats to the participant, I enjoy taking pictures of this walk every year, it’s good fun though I wish the rules were a bit more flexible. Like actually scaring unwilling participants :)

    HA! way to call me out, frenchy!

    more than a handful of our girls were supporting domestic violence awareness downtown with ‘the hunt for purple october’ hosted by the ASAP dasies. one of the AASRD teams even won! — check the tu blog tomorrow for more. :)

    i, myself, was on my death bed… so i stayed in all weekend. sad i had to miss all of the fun.

    great photos of the zombie walk though! maybe next year we’ll be asked to host! :D

    Haha, way to use the “domestic violence” card :) now I look like a tool despite the fact that I spent Saturday night saving blind kittens with diabetes from grizzly bears with chainsaws.

  3. sin says:

    i can’t help the fact that i have a mind for public relations. ;) hope those kittens all survived… poor things.

  4. sin says:

    btw, what i meant by tomorrow was actually thursday. :)

    so much for those PR skills.
