Then from 7-9pm at 5 Pointz there will be a mini movie filmed, and all zombies are encouraged to participate. Contact Thomas Art of Zombies Worldwide if you’d like to join in the fun. Watch out for the fire breathers (thanks, Fire Angels).

While you’re at 5 Pointz, enjoy a black light gallery designed for the event at the loading dock. There will also be a digital mapping projection on the building from the loading dock.

The after party starts at midnight and takes place at The Shannon Pot. $3 drink specials are again in place for the zombies, which can get more zombified (AKA sloshed). Partying goes til 4am.
