Zombies at the Science Museum

Zombies: the word alone is enough to get the pulse racing, but what makes them so terrifying? On a dark winter’s night at the Science Museum, we’ll explore the murky but fascinating world of consciousness and uncover the inner workings of the zombie psyche. From mind-altering drugs to the innate impulses we all feel, prepare to walk the line between human and zombie in surprising and theatrical ways. Bring your brain – and guard it carefully. There’ll also be prizes for the best-dressed zombies, so get creating your costumes!

Includes a lecture about zombies on film by Alex Fitch – time TBC – will be covering some of the same ground as the article on zombies after Romero from Electric Sheep: The End

Doors open 18.45, Wednesday 30th January 2013, Free (over 18s only)

Science Museum, Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2DD
