Ours has become a zombie-fixated culture. With Hollywood churning out scores of gorefests each year — some laden with socioeconomic metaphor à la Romero, and others just an excuse for gratuitous, bare-breasted bloodbaths — it makes perfect sense that several Nashvillians are planning to don their rattiest garb and amble through the streets this Halloween season. In conjunction with World Zombie Day on Oct. 10 — that’s 10/10/10 for fans of eerily alternating binary — 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 very good cause. (Had the Zombie Walk been scheduled for just 10 days later, it could have been held in conjunction with Rob Zombie’s Oct. 20 concert at Municipal Auditorium. Damn.) Anyway, this is the walk’s third year, and Nashville zombie impersonators are once again asked to bring at least one nonperishable food item for donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank — and no, brains don't count.
