28 days after Zombieland, "zombie" is hardly even a noun anymore. It's gone adjective, especially when it comes to costume time: the Coterie at Night's show Maul of the Dead boasts a zombie nun, a zombie Girl Scout, a zombie ballerina, and Cody Wyoming as a zombie punk-rock guitar hero whose riffs will shred your brains before he even has a chance to eat 'em.
Up against such awesomeness, who in their right mind will dress up this weekend as a mere plain-jane, vanilla-yogurt, one-size-fits-all zombie?
For zombie advice, we turned to Ron Megee, the director of Maul of the Dead and a world-class wrangler of the undead.
Megee's Maul of the Dead is a splattery blast. It runs through Halloween night at Crown Center's Off-Center Theatre (Friday and Saturday at 7, 9 and 11 p.m.).
