Dead men (and women) walking

People across the world celebrated the philosophical/literary/supernatural phenomenon of zombies. Widely acclaimed to be the one 'realistic' potential threat from the genre that gave us werewolves and vampires, the concept of zombies has entertained and terrified millions. From Shaun of the Dead to Dead Girl to Dawn of the Dead, from the cult to mainstream, zombies are inescapable.

So in appreciation of this, people from different parts of the world lurched in unison over the weekend in a graphic and painfully detailed march.
