On the upcoming Friday October 10th, Sitges will be invaded by hundreds of zombies. The International Film Festival of Catalonia, (from October 2nd to the 12th), in its most underground section, Brigadoon, has organized the Eastpak Zombie Walk, along with the Spooky Entertainment cultural association and sponsored by Eastpak, Calle 13, Pepsi and Planeta D'Agostini Comics.
This march of the living dead will begin at 19:00 at the Miramar Building in Sitges, with the starting gun fired by director George A. Romero, who will be attending the Festival to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his emblematic movie Night of the Living Dead. The route will follow the main streets through the center of Sitges and will end on the Paseo de la Ribera esplanade with a free concert (21:00) by the groups Motorzombis, Dulcamara, Eyaculación Post Mortem, Secret Army, Brioles and Los Tiki Phantoms.
The quick guide to the Eastpak Zombie Walk Sitges 2008 is as follows: 1. First of all, remember you are not alive, so your appearance needs to reflect it. 2. Keep in mind all of a zombie's good manners: grunts, groans, whines, even howling (if you're a werewolf zombie) are essential. "Good zombies don't break windows". 3. Don't forget to soak your body in blood: in your mouth, on your neck... and if it's someone else's blood, much better. 4. Walk like a real zombie, dragging your legs and begging for brains. 5. Follow our guides and don't stray off, the big feast comes at the end of the walk. 6. At 19:00 George A. Romero will fire the starting gun. Stand behind him and don't touch him. 7. If you don't come zombiefied go straight to the Brigadoon zone (Miramar Building) and our expert makeup artists will turn you into a genuine zombie starting at 12:00 noon. 8. Once the walk reaches the beach, the party will continue at the best zombie concert from the land of the living dead.
