'The Walking Dead' Brought to Life by Universal Studios (video)

Are you ready for the zombie apocalypse...? 
I hope so, because Universal Studios is bringing The Walking Dead experience to life this coming Halloween... check out the video introduction below: 


That's right... this coming October, fans of the Emmy Award winning series The Walking Dead can get off their couches and walk within the world of zombies as they make their way through an elaborately themed maze at both the Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. Watch the video introduction and some comments from USH Creative Director, John Murdy below....
"Ever since The Walking Dead first premiered on AMC back on Halloween night in 2010, we've been huge fans of this television show," Murdy explained. " It had everything that we look for when it comes to Halloween Horror Nights. Great environments and iconic characters. Which is why we then reached to Greg Nicotero, the co-executive producer of The Walking Dead, to see if he'd be interested in working with us to reimagine this hit AMC series as a maze." "We're providing Universal with the exact same molds and make-up pieces that we used on the show. So when you encounter Bicycle Girl and the Well Walker as you go through The Walking Dead maze, they're going to look exactly as they did on the television show," Nicotero continued. "Our goal here is to give fans of the show as authentic an experience as we possibly can." "To my way of thinking, there's no better place to begin our story in this Walking Dead maze," Murdy stated. "We put you right in Rick's shoes. Imagine being in a coma and then waking up and realizing there are all these walking dead. And they're now trying to get you."
