Dark Carnival Memories, 2007-2015

| September 24, 2015

The Zombie Rights Campaign has been attending the Dark Carnival (and, for the last couple of years, Diabolique International) Film Festival since before there was a Zombie Rights Campaign as such. Founded in 2007, Dark Carnival/Diabolique has been bringing horror movies of all varieties, including many Zombie films, to southern Indiana for 8 glorious, messy [...]

Nightmare on Chicago Street 2013

| October 30, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign had a great time at Nightmare on Chicago Street in Elgin last Saturday! We were once again very impressed by the extremely creative, extremely hardworking Elgin crew, who create what is unambiguously the biggest, most elaborate Halloween public celebration and Zombie Walk we have ever seen. (Like being in an action [...]

Reminder: Zombies Doing Good, Avon Zombie Walk Edition

| August 18, 2013

Just putting a post up reminding our Indiana readers that there will be a fine Zombie walk in Avon this October benefiting a good cause and arranged by an inspiring young Zombie Ally: The Avon Zombie Walk (AVZ) is a first year event which is being coordinated by eleven year old Jon Barker of Avon, [...]

Avon Zombie Walk: Zombies Doing Good, Halloween Adjacent

| May 25, 2013

The Zombie Rights Campaign knows how hard it can be to find a good social outing for a mixed Living/Undead crowd around Halloween. There tend to be a lot of… overly enthusiastic fans of the latest Anti-Zombie media around that time of year, and misunderstandings often result. It can be awkward. So we keep an [...]

Zombies Doing Good: Zombie Day

| April 16, 2013

The ZRC is always delighted to see Zombies and the Living brought together in a good cause, and so we were very pleased to hear about ‘Zombie Day’ this Saturday, April 20th in the Chicago area. I will now shamelessly post the details from their Facebook page to benefit those who have not joined the [...]

‘ZombieLab’ Explores the Science, Social Status and Legal Rights of the Differently Animated

| January 28, 2013

We have often lamented the brusque treatment the Differently Animated receive from today’s scientists and scholars here at the ZRC Blog. It seems like Zombies exist only to be exploited by the ivory tower, only discussed in terms of eradication and control, not reason and understanding. Much as the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ is used to promote [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign at Horrorhound

| September 10, 2012

That was a brisk weekend of outreach for the ZRC! Special thanks to ZRC pal Michelle Hartz, author of ‘Brains for the Zombie Soul‘, for capably operating our booth on Friday while I was otherwise detained learning about contracts and such. Zombies need contracts too, right? Horrorhound was of course inundated with Zombie-related media, and [...]

FEARnet Teams Up with Capcom for Comic-Con Event

| June 26, 2012

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 [...]

A Zombie Rights March at Comic-Con

| June 26, 2012

We’re delighted to hear about, and promote, a Zombie Rights march at Comic Con, to show the Robert Kirkmans and Max Brookses of the world what the Undead of the world really want: their civil rights. Are you ready to #ZOMBIFYSDCC?! We are! Zombies have been exploited in entertainment and media for too long! The [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign at the Zombie March Chicago (2012)

| June 17, 2012

We, your humble staffers from The Zombie Rights Campaign, embarked on a bold adventure yesterday into the very heart of Chicago to witness a stirring outing and show of solidarity amongst the Chicago-area Undead community and their allies. You know, by going to the Chicago Zombie March. It was a great event, and I have [...]
