The undead haunt iReport

This Halloween, we’ve certainly seen our share of ghost stories, but like a swarm of bloodthirsty ghouls, the phenomenon of zombie walks has also taken over iReport in recent days.

They’re not a new thing --- iReporters have shared videos of zombie walks for years, whether they be at comic book conventions, or a world record, but we’ve seen more than usual lately.

This event wasn't just about looking like death and searching for brains; it had a charitable cause. Each of the participants was donating canned goods for the needy.

iReporters Greg Reese, Carol Rucker and Forest Thomer all covered the same zombie walk in Florence, Kentucky, on Saturday the 23rd. “The event was a success on many levels and exceeded expectations," according to Thomer, noting that they got plenty of canned food as well.

In the midst of this event, Thomer, whose life’s dream is to dance with Ellen DeGeneres, put together the Giant Zombie Ellen DeGeneres Dance, inspired by the dancing she does on her talk show.

There was also a worldwide zombie walk going on that weekend as well, and Mike Roy captured the scene in London, Ontario, as the macabre marchers tried to show that they were the best at staggering, shuffling, and just acting in an altogether creepy manner.

With both Halloween and the debut of AMC’s “Walking Dead” happening this weekend, it appears that people have zombies on the brain (pun intended). Have you come across any zombies in your neck of the woods? Share your iReport with us!

This year Halloween, falls on a Sunday? How will it be celebrated? Church,angels, prays or Devilish goons with gobblins and monsters? Confused, it's like heaven and hell coming together.

I thought that was strange, people dresses up in zombie costumes looked creepy. It actually looked real at first, then again it is Halloween so maybe that there way of celebrating Halloween. Who knows. I thinking of doing a little reasearch on the zo,bie walk. If I find anything good to post you will probably see it. I think Catti is right it did look like hell and heaven coming together.

One of the best things for society might be zombies.  Natural selection no longer works and zombies might balance the equation :)  To all, even the zombies, Happy Halloween.

I did Denver Zombie Crawl this year.  Set up shop before the feast of brains with my makeup and made a small fortune from tips.
