Zombies Bowling for Brains in Chicago

By Zombie Hunter Sam

Bloody Balls

Chicago is always full of people walking around half dead, shouting, and attacking each other. And I’m not just talking about the zombies, this time I’m referring to the Irish.

St Patrick’s day weekend is always a good time in the windy city, and expect it to be particularly interesting March 14th, when hordes of the undead converge on the lanes instead of brains. I’ll be there with some of my crew, but don’t expect me to be one of the zombified — someone has to protect you from the gutterball slinging madness.

WildClaw Theatre Proudly Presents: Zombie Bowling
A Benefit for the Midwest premiere of The Revenants.

The RevenantsA little bit about the The Revenants:

‘Til death do us part? When a global outbreak of horrific violence forces two couples to hide in an abandoned basement, they come face to face with the true meaning of commitment. As wounded spouses take a turn for the worse, husbands and wives must ask of each other: When does love die?
