NYC Zombie Crawl in Times Square Documentary

April 27, 2010 by  
Filed under NEWS

Last October we got hired by Sony Pictures to create a NYC Zombie Crawl event for the NYC Premiere of ‘Zombieland’ with Woody Harrelson. We did a huge crawl through the middle of Times Square and was one of our biggest events to date…we had over 600 Zombies! Zombie lover and filmmaker John Morgan was on hand to document the madness and made a 15 minute documentary on the whole event, check it out below!

Also, our good friend Nate “Igor” Smith from DrivenByBoredom.com was on hand and got some killer shots of the action, you can check out his full report and gallery here!

“I am not sure if you have ever seen well over 600 zombies running down Broadway a 8PM on a Thursday, but I can tell you this… the police hadn’t. There is a police station in the middle of Times Square and there were cops everywhere. They had no idea how to handle this. They would arrive on the scene, pull out their batons, and then sort of put them back, looking confused. The mob almost got out of hand when zombies started attacking cars and knocking over chairs and tables, but after several cop cars with sirens blazing started escorting the zombies down Broadway, things calmed down a bit. That did not stop a limo driver from punching a zombie or stopping a 16 Wheeler from crashing into a Lexus outside the movie theater. How does he explain a zombie attack to his insurance company?”
