Richmond Zombie Walk Posters are here! Kind of.

Richmond Zombie Walk poster collection 2010-2013

If you’ve been dragging yourself around with us longer than 4 years, you may remember that we used to hold a poster design contest every year. The winner’s art would become that year’s official promotional image . We’ve had great ones over the years, but at the start of the contest in 2010 an early submission from Abigail Larson caught our attention and we’ve been great admirers ever since.

Abigail has been generous enough to create one for us every year since she won the contest in 2010. You could say she’s our Grand Champion. We’re proud to feature her work on almost everything we do and because of numerous inquiries we began offering them at each event. The response was tremendous. It became immediately obvious that Richmond also loves Abigail’s work.

This year all of the posters from 2010 to 2013 will be available again. If you’re brave enough to come to the official event this year on Saturday, October 26th, you can pick them up at the pre-walk meet up spot at The Landing in Byrd Park’s Boat Lake starting at 1p (Additional event details). You can get them separately ($5 each) or all of them in a 4-pack ($15). Like our $5 participant donations, all of the profits from the posters will go to the American Cancer Society. Each poster is printed in full color on an 11″ x 17″ textured heavyweight stock which is suitable for framing.

Aaaaand if you don’t appear to be a threat to her, Abigail will be attending and will autograph posters before the walk.

Posters are only available on the day of the event and are not available online (yet), but if we have leftovers we’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, tell the world you’re feasting on brains with the Richmond undead at our 9th Anuual Richmond Zombie Walk Facebook Event Page and keep up with the latest/last-second details by following us on Twitter @rvazombiewalk.

You can also keep up with Abigail Larson at AbigailLarson.com.

See you at the main event!

Board up the windows, don’t go anywhere without a weapon and be silent.. Nah! GET UP AND SCREAM! The Walking Dead marathon all week! At least 5 episodes a night every night this week until the Season 4 Premiere episode, “30 Days Without an Incident” on Sunday, October 13 at 9/8c.

You’ll get to relive every tense moment in Season 1. My favorite.. But seriously? 5 every night? October really is the best month of the year.

Richmond Zombie Walk on Facebook!

Richmond Zombie Walk on Facebook!

It could be argued that everyone on Facebook are zombies, but let’s not get into that. We’ve been lurking there for quite some time and unless you’re… A.) all mush in the head, B.) trapped under something heavy without a WiFi connection, or C.) just not from around here (RVA), then you may have not noticed that a couple of us are still aware enough between large helpings of coma-inducing brains to log into a few social networks.

For the uninitiated go and join the Richmond Zombie Walk Facebook group, where the RVA dead come to mumble and groan about local undead things. If you’re looking for an “official” word from your Richmond zombie overlords, just “like” us on our official Richmond Zombie Walk Facebook page. There you’ll get the feed on all things Richmond Zombie Walk. Hold up, you’re going to the main event, right? This is what we’re all about! Let the world know that you are attending the greatest annual Halloween event in Richmond at the event page for our 9th Annual Richmond Zombie Walk. AAAAND if that wasn’t enough, we sometimes get a few words out in the form of tweets every now and then. You can follow us on Twitter at @RVAZombieWalk.

Or you could just come here to RichmondZombieWalk.com – the hub of our online zombie existence. You’re always welcome and we hope that you enjoy your stay.  If you could remove your hats and lean forward you can pay your bill right now… *CHOMP

Things that make you go “Eeeew”.

HUUUNGRY! HUNGRY JACK!

HUUUNGRY! HUNGRY JACK!

Lately Hollywood has been cranking out some truly sad horror films that aren’t even worthy enough to make any fan’s horror-boners twitch even a little. Well, the Evil Dead remake was good and Warm Bodies was stupid, but it somehow passed with it’s cuteness. Anyways, forget that Romeo and Juliet rip off!

Where’s the blood and guts!? When I go to a horror flick, the seats are returned to its upright and locked position and my mind goes on auto-pilot. Basking in the weird, shocking, crimson splatter of shredded flesh and fatal bite wounds (if I’m lucky). I’ll admit that I am no blood scholar, but I did run into this list of great films on BuzzFeed  that will definitely fill your quota psychopaths and supernatural disembodiment. They give you the tour, in chronological order, of films from the obvious favorite Texas Chainsaw Massacre to that bizarre Italian flick previously condemned as a snuff film, Cannibal Holocaust. It’s a  great variety of gross-out subgenres that I need to add to my “to-do” list.

So for those of you with the stomach, get on over to BuzzFeed and explore its 25 Great Gory Horror Films.
