Attacked by Zombies!!!

The Universal lot is teeming with the Undead. I should know, I saw two innocent people attacked and eaten at a press junket. A press junket, people!!

We had been invited to witness "Zombie Zchool", a training course where students learn how to walk, talk and twitch like a real, honest to goodness Zombies. The class was being held in front of the old Bates Motel, which, while still an ominous place, is slightly less formidable with Whoville looming just behind it.

When the instructor arrived, he pulled some students out and had them show us what they'd learned so far in class. There was the signature Zombie walk and of course the unmistakable guttural moan. Just as Tiffany, a perky young woman opened her mouth to demonstrate, three real, live zombies burst out of room 3 and ran, or rather, stumbled hurriedly toward us. They grabbed the instructor and a woman from the crowd, ripped off their hair and pulled out their guts. It was pretty gnarly.
