FEARnet Teams Up with Capcom for Comic-Con Event

We recently reported on a Zombie Rights march at Comic-Con, but sadly, there are some arguably less Zombie Friendly events occurring as well, even tied in with the March:

FEARnet, the leading cable destination for horror, thriller and suspense content, will team with Capcom® and its upcoming Resident Evil® 6 video game and MPI’s Dark Sky Films to celebrate the horror genre at Comic-Con this year, hosting “Con-of-the-Dead,” an evening party saluting both fans and industry insiders, alike. This invitation-only party will fittingly take place Friday, July 13, at San Diego’s gothic-inspired Voyeur nightclub from 6 to 8:30 PM PT.

“Con-of-the-Dead” guests will experience an interactive event complete with playable demo stations featuring Resident Evil 6, a VIP suite decked out by Dark Sky Films, music spun by LA’s DJ Amanda Jones, go-go ghoul dancers, customized refreshments and ‘zombie-fied’ photo booth.

I can’t say we approve of a lot of that. ‘Resident Evil 6′? As if Zombie patrons of the convention won’t see enough Undead bashing.

And I’d wager the ‘zombie-fied’ photo booth is fairly exploitative.

Still, there is some attempt at outreach being made:

FEARnet will team up with the 6th Annual Zombie Walk: San Diego, where 300 participating zombies will win admittance to FEARnet’s “Con-of-the-Dead” party taking place that same evening. The lucky undead winners will be able to enter the event after completing the walk in San Diego’s historic Gaslamp District.

If nothing else, it’s a chance for dialogue.
