Zombies!!! Pictures from Toronto’s Annual Zombie Walk

Every October 23rd, on a hunt for brains and brain-flavoured condiments, the rotting dead shamble their way through downtown Toronto. You would think after eight years of this, the police/shotgun-wielding vigilantes would be better prepared, but droves of about 6,000 zombies nearly devoured those within mauling distance.

Here are the pictures I was able to get before fleeing in terror.

The horde, beginning their onslaught.

A fiend, relishing her latest victim.


The barbershop zombies were great. They sang songs about brains and almost made me forget they were planning on eating me.

I’m assuming the zombie-lamb is from ‘Black Sheep’.

Even zombies have political ideals.

Moments before a close call with death.

Zombism knows no age.

Subway, eat fresh…brains.

Egads! Zombie-Smurfs

Zombie-Nazi from ‘Dead Snow’

These weren’t like any zombies I’d ever seen before, but I decided that arguing would only leave me open to brain-nibbling.

Garbage-zombie was very committed to finding brains wherever he could.

Evil, flannel-wearing, rabbit-zombie still haunts my soul.

The most famous zombie of all even made time to attempt to devour our frontal lobes.
