Max Brooks anticipation high after zombie movie

Nothing goes better with a zombie movie than pizza, popcorn and candy zombie body parts.

“Shaun of the Dead” was shown in the Multicultural Lounge March 11 in order to heighten undead spirits for the welcoming of zombie aficionado Max Brooks. Brooks hosted the “Oral History of the Zombie War” on campus March 12 in the Tivoli Turnhalle.

The zombie comedy didn’t lure too big of a crowd, only around 20-30 people, but offered plenty of food and candy. CCD students Destine Romero and Derek Hall handed out popcorn to patrons looking for something other than brains to munch on.

Brittany Richardson, UCD Denver, was in charge of pressing “play” and handing out the costume prize. She attended Brooks lecture Wednesday and is finishing up “World War Z.”

“I think [WWZ] will be OK,” Richardson said. “I really don’t have a lot of faith in movies that are made from books.”

The night also featured a zombie costume contest. The winner received a Zombie Survival Package comprised of season one of “The Walking Dead,” “Zombieland,” and a copy of Max Brooks’ “World War Z.” The contest was easy to judge, given that there were only two attendees in undead attire. The winners were Alie Holden, UCD, and Rick Morris from Colorado School of Mines.
