Christmas came early for me this week in the form of a road trip to Secaucus, NJ where Walker Stalker Con New York/New Jersey was in full swing at the Meadowlands Exposition Center. All forms of horror, sci-fi and zombie, particularly The Walking Dead, themed wares and vendibles awaited the throng of excited fans who were in attendance all weekend long, shopping, listening in on panels and sharing experiences with some of their favorite horror movie and television stars.I was the proverbial kid in the candy store and may have developed a temporary case of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, but managed to make it through the day without completely losing my mind. Mostly.
Zombie lovers rejoice! Walker Stalker Con in the New York/New Jersey area is only 2 days away and the excitement has been spreading faster than the undead! I personally will be attending on Sunday, December 14th and am especially looking forward to the first panel on Evolution of the Zombie discussed by Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg and a special photo op with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus – which I will be posting as soon as I am able!
The Human Beast
Wolfman, werewolf, lycanthrope, rougarou or Loup Garou; the names all bear upon the human who shape-shifts into a wolf-like beast, either by will or by the light of the full moon. One of the original monsters, the werewolf’s lore has existed since before the medieval period and has endured through the centuries in literary fiction, film and television. Some of the earliest fictional depictions include Bram Stoker’s Dracula in 1897 and Werewolf of London in 1935.
