Toronto Zombie Walk 2007


Toronto Zombie Walk 2007 057
Originally uploaded by FluffyEvil
The zombie walk was huge this year - with over 1000 zombies. A lot of the zombies turned out for the The Toronto After Dark film premiere of AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION. That was a lot of fun because they would cheer every time someone was eaten. Funny stuff.

Check back here in the next day or two for reviews of that and many other After Dark films, as well as a review of Control a film by Anton Corjbin. I think I just might be getting movied out - who knew viewing movies would be so tiring.
