Dead walk in Prague
Organisers are hoping to attract a record 1,000 would-be zombies to the annual Prague Zombie Walk – an event celebrating the genre originally founded by American filmmaker George A. Romero. His films The Night of the Living Dead and the 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead – earned popularity by showing the difficulty of survival in apocalyptic scenarios; the genre has since inspired numerous comic and TV series (such as The Walking Dead, or the dark comedy Zombieland). Zombies in Prague, as well as some of their ‘victims’, will walk from Malá strana’s Kampa and over Charles Bridge to the Rudolfinum Concert Hall. The walk is linked with several events including a concert and after party.
