REVIEW: UNDead in the Water - Tampa Bay

Thanks to the resurgence in mainstream popularity of zombie culture, the apocalypse is a topic we're able to ponder from a sort of "fantasy" slant. After all, the rise of the undead for a human harvest couldn't really become a realistic event... right?

But, what if...

Work with me here. Even if you haven't considered your survival plan in the case of a zombie apocalypse, haven't we all had a moment to wonder where we would go and what we would do if an apocalyptic event were to unfold? Let's face it - we Floridians have emergency plans embedded in our brains thanks to hurricanes anyway, so maybe it's not a huge leap to throw the potential for flesh-eating monsters into the mix - just in case. (Right about now, you are raising an eyebrow at me, but let me profess - I actually took a course through UC Irvine: 'Survival Lessons From The Walking Dead'... it's a thing, people! But I digress...)

It just so happens - in the case of a zombie apocalypse, those lucky folks near Tampa's Channelside District have a pretty nifty escape option... the American Victory Ship!

"The Walking Dead" - Brains Required

From an earlier age than most would approve of, I've been a fan of horror movies. Halloween was always my favorite. There's just something about Michael Myers, am I right? I never really felt much enthusiasm for the zombie genre (yes, it legitimately is a genre of its own). As a kid, I did have a brief love affair with Return of the Living Dead , but I enjoyed it as comedy. Zombies never scared me, and they certainly never challenged me on a cerebral level. Truth be told, I firmly believe they seek to devour brains hoping to add a little intelligence to their "craft". Epic fail, by the way!
