The zombies are back! And they’re after your money. The organisers of the Beach of the Dead zombie walk are holding a fundraising film screening in just under a fortnight.

The organiser Kate Amer said: “This fundraising event is vital to Beach of the Dead’s future.
“This event will allow us to go hard and gruesome on a comeback for Beach of the Dead 2015.
“All funds raised with go directly to the event, allowing me to go to the powers that be with a plan of action for our return for 2015.”
The Beach of the Dead website says: “On a stormy October evening, Beach of the Dead was created.
“Organiser Kate was fed up with the lack of Halloween events around in 2007 and craved a macabre atmosphere.
“With a love of horror and any excuse to cover herself head-to-toe in blood, Beach of the Dead was born.
“Beach of the Dead puts the ‘fun’ in ‘funeral’, the ‘laughter’ in ‘slaughter’ and invites the whole family to get involved.
“Beach of the Dead takes zombie walks to a new level.
“Brighton zombie parade attracts thousands of participants and likeminded onlookers from across the globe.
“In 2012, Beach of the Dead broke the UK Guinness Book of Records largest zombie walk with 6,000 attendees.
“However, with the good, the bad must follow. Beach of the Dead did not take place 2013 or 2014
due to lack of funding and time pressure.
“The parade is entirely funded by our organiser, therefore the parade was taken back to the butchers block to dissect, manipulate and create a monster which shall return in 2015.
“In the meantime Brighton will not miss out. Beach of the Dead is organising fundraisers and smaller-scale events to help raise funds to bring back the dead.”
