Ours has become a zombie-fixated culture. With Hollywood churning out scores of gorefests each year--some laden with socioeconomic metaphor a la Romero and others just an excuse for gratuitous, bare-breasted bloodbaths--it makes perfect sense that dozens of Nashvillians are planning to don their rattiest garb and amble through the streets this Halloween season. In conjunction with World Zombie Day on October 26, several cities across the globe will host what are known as zombie walks, in which dozens of undead denizens wander their city in support of a cause. This year, Nashville zombie impersonators are asked to bring at least one nonperishable food item for donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank--and no, brains don't count.
