Today is the final day of Zombie Awareness Month 2011. As the site’s zombie-related content got rather lean towards the end of the month, I thought I’d share a zombie video to give ZAM the send-off it deserves:
I love the way that video ends, don’t you? But don’t worry, I’m not only going to show a video that’s just over 20 seconds and call it a day. Here’s something you can really sink your teeth into, a music video starring Baron Samedi called “Thrill Me”:
The above was included at the end of the video cassette that came with the fourth installment of the Nightmare VHS game series (also known as Atmosfear), wherein a board game is used on conjunction with a prerecorded video. In this series, Baron Samedi is a zombie who acted as a “harbinger” that a player could control during his original appearance and later acted as the host of Nightmare II expansion in 1992. However, he returned to his role as a harbinger soon after and his last appearance was in 2006’s Khufu The Mummy, with DVD having replaced the game’s use of VHS in 2006’s Atmosfear: The Gatekeeper. But, given the series’ strong fanbase online, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Baron makes another appearance in the future. Happy Zombie Awareness Month!
