melancholic zombie

This zombie cut a forlorn figure in the vast crowd of the undead. Perhaps, at some basal/subconscious level, the reanimated do experience rudimentary emotion? Unfortunately, meaningful research in this area is desperately lacking as most sensible people shoot or decapitate zombies on sight. 😀

Beach of the Dead V, 22 October 2011. Beach of the Dead is a “zombie walk” that takes place annually in Brighton near to the time of Halloween. Inspired by the classic horror film genre (particularly the George A Romero films), participants garb themselves up as the undead and parade en masse in character from the Victoria Gardens on Grand Parade to the Concorde 2 night club on the seafront.

This year an estimated 4000 people took part in the march.
