Romero Week Starts NOW!

Photobucket

Thanks to the incredibly generous and amazing folks over at Fright Rags (the greatest horror shirt company in the world), Romero Week kicks off with a serious bang today. For the first of several giveaways that will be held throughout the week, Fright Rags has donated one of my personal favorite shirts of theirs - their Night of the Living Dead Artist Series tee. Only 200 of these babies exist in the entire world - how's that for kicking things off with a bang! Believe me, this is a sign of things to come this week!

Photobucket

This shirt was only made available through their website for a very limited period of time and has been gone off the site for quite some time now. In fact, this here giveaway is currently the only way you can get your hands on it if you missed out during its initial run. The shirt up for grabs is a men's size medium and all you have to do to throw your name into the running is leave a comment below with your name, e-mail address, and your personal (and honest!) answer to the following question :

If your loved one turned into a zombie, ala NOTLD's trowel wielding Karen Cooper, what would you do?

This giveaway, as well as all giveaways being held during Romero Week, will run throughout the entire week - all entries must be received by this Sunday, May 30th, at 11:59pm. Contest is open to everyone. Good luck and stay tuned for several more giveaways and lots more Romero fun this week!

I would kill the loved one. Once they become a zombie, their life as we knew it is now over. And I couldn't bear to let them roam the Earth living with that type of un-lifestyle.

Two words: Deadgirl. Rowwwr.

(Probably not what I'd actually do, but it was the first response, so I typed it.)

I'd like to say I'd shoot them, but I'd probably wimp out and lock them in a room like the basement at the beginning of "Dawn of the Dead."

Just like my feelings on euthanasia, I'd be sad to have to do it, but I'd have no problem putting them out of their misery.

When in doubt, consult Max Brooks. It'll save your life.

No matter how much i loved them, i'd know that they are truly dead, there is no coming back, so i'd do what i'd have to do, whether that be using a gun, baseball bat, chainsaw, or whatever else i could find.

Kerry Harrison said...

I would keep them on a chain leash in the shed, so I can play playstation with them.
They will be my Ed, and I will have to bear through their undead farts. It will literially be a silent AND DEADLY fart. Rofl.

I'd drive him/her to the mall to go shopping for survivor brains.

I mean there dead already...killing em twice is a little overkill

Sweet schwag, John!

I would have to agree with Columbus (Zombieland) on this one and put two in the head. Sorry guys, but I'd hope that you'd do the same for me.

Robin said...

I would cry, scream a bit, then shoot them in the head. Then probably scream a bit more.

It really depends on the type of zombie if they were genuinely dead NOTLD style flat out bisect the head with axe or shovel and bury (decapitation leaves you with a head rolling around trying to bite off your toes, and burning requires fuel which i would guess will be infinitely valuable to trade and scarce to find.). if they could get better remove teeth and fingers, tie up (or hand and foot cuff if available) and keep locked away. but recovery scenario incredibly unlikely.

Wes said...

I'd shoot them without thinking twice. I think it's probably what they want if they turn into a zombie...

Griffin McLain, Glmclain@gmail.com:

What would I do? I would keep it locked in a deep, deep pit. Then I would build a fort and capture virgins, and sacrifice them to the zombie pit.

I have too much time on my hands to think about this.

Answer: Caulk them mouth shut and ducttape oven-mits over their hands so they can't bite or scratch. From there, it depends on what role they previously served in my life.

Amber said...

Well, since we've actually had this talk, I'd kill 'em -- but as for the method, it would depend on what was handy. Hopefully it would be an interesting kill, though, as they'd appreciate that watching from wherever they were,

Schwarz Bruder said...

Honestly, I wouldn't do anything, I'd probably let her kill me...don't think I would be able to kill her.

Morphine said...

If my loved one turned into a zombie I think I would kill them, I've read enough zombie books/seen enough movies to know that it's just a smarter long term move.

Flexei said...

I don't think I'd have the heart to re-kill my zombified loved one and would probably prefer something like a setting them free in the countryside type of thing.

The only thing you can do is shoot'm in the head.

Valorie said...

I hate to say it, but if I loved him I would have to put him out of his misery.

Unless he wasn't a monster zombie and more a comedy movie zombie where we could get into all sorts of crazy hijinks together.

m0rdum said...

My brother told me,"If I'm ever on life support don't pull the plug, and if I become a zombie don't shoot me in the head!" Still, I can't believe he'd wanna walk around like that. He'd be dead, he'd be all messed up. I'll keep the machines juiced, but I'd definitely blow away zombie-bro!

Marry her. After all she'd still be there when you're old and decrepit, cause your body doesn't matter, she really likes you for your BRAINS!

Jenna Wood said...

I'd realize they're already dead and destroy them at any means necessary.

Too Many Zombies said...

Mostly, I'd just try to stay at least six feet away from them at all times. It's a rule I'd apply to all undead, not just loved ones.

I hate to do it, but I would have to put them out of their misery. It wouldn't technically be killing them, since they are already dead.

Well I would optimistically keep my loved one securely locked up with hopes of one day being able to have a cure.

First, Fright Rags is awesome! Seriously great images and customer service. But I digress... if a loved one turned into a zombie? "Off with their head!" Seriously, I've seen and read enough to know better.

Justin said...

I'd throw my loved one in a cage, then contact every media outlet I could find. Then I'd go on tour with it and make a killing as people line up for their chance to see an actual real life zombie. What can I say- times are tough.

To kill a zombified loved one, you must first ask yourself if you could cope with the trauma of slaughtering them. Personally, it would haunt me for the rest of my life, but in the end if I truly loved them, I would have to finish them off. Eliminating them is a matter I have considered before. To begin with, I would find the first thing I could use as a weapon, be it a blunt object or a sharp tool. I would prefer to have a gun because of how quick and easy it would be, but unfortunately I do not own one. However, I do own a hammer, hatchet, and baseball bat. In my opinion the bat is the superior of the three and I would try my hardest to finish them off quickly. Soon after I’d burn them and scatter their ashes.

That question has been the end of many people in many movies. Personally i would shoot to kill. love is love but death is death, its the only honorable thing to do. unless they have already stated they want to see how the other side lives.....

Ed said...

Forgot to answer the question the first time...;-P

I would definitely be in a situation and try to get away from them before having to kill them...If that doesn't work then I hope there's someone else around to do the killing...I don't think I could do it..

pixie13 said...

I'd put them down. Practical survival first & grief later. And I'd hope that if I became one of the shambling undead, the people who care about me would put me down, too.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Oh gosh, I don't know what I would do. I'd probably run away and let someone in authority deal with it. Now if they were trying to kill me? I'd have to use defense.

Gary D Macabre said...

hmm let me think a mome.. first i waste the trowel wielding little bitch then make the loved one comfortable. Anyone know if the zombie plague is transferable through "bodily fluids" while the victim is still alive? In a few days when she passes away I skag her corpse too.

Halloweenman666 said...

I'd kill the family member. They are dead the second they are bitten, no longer themselves. -Jason- halloweenman666@gmail.com

haddonfieldpi said...

unfortunately as we all know once bitten that is the end so having spent the moments proceeding with them upon changing, yeah i would end it for them without question.
