“I’m obsessed with zombies. I like watching zombie movies and I read zombie books.”~ Kevin Bacon
When I heard about this story I was totally shocked and then on the other side of things I could do nothing but nod.
If it is true then it is terrible and tragic. But since I heard about it by word of mouth then I do not know whether or not I am going to believe that it is.
As we come closer and closer to Halloween, everyone who celebrates are getting excited. And some of us are the kind of friend that will exploit the fears of other friends.
Such is the case that I heard most recently.
A group of friends were wanting to go visit a haunted house. But one of the friends had a really nasty fear. They didn’t like being scared and all of that. They didn’t watch horror films and they didn’t participate much in Halloween. The problem was that they just scare too easily.
Well the rest of the group were minus one, and they just didn’t feel right about it. They wanted to include their fear struck friend in their hijinks some how.
Rather than spending their money for admission to their favored haunted house, they decided to use the money to dress up with costumes and make-up and go scare their fearful friend at his home.
The group was described to go to the nines. They even learned how to be a zombie after hiring an instructor. So the group finally got ready with their scary outfits and had a few zombie actors tag along with them to go scare their friend.
Their friend was asleep when they arrived. When he heard all of the noises, he went into a panic. He reached under the bed and pulled out his loaded pistol and started screaming at the people to go away.
The zombie party continued to stay in character, until the first shots were fired through the bedroom window.
In his half-awake state, the victimized and pranked friend went ballistic and fired upon everyone who was banging against his house.
Even after the scary party realized what was going on and they fled for their lives and coming out of character, the guy charged out of his house and kept firing upon them.
It was never told whether or not anyone had died in this horrible incident. But I think it would be safe to say that someone got seriously hurt.
I’ve been searching and searching online for any story or article written about this. I have not been successful in finding anything. So, this could just be a Halloween story for fun. If that is the case… that’s messed up!!
I hope that everyone has a safe and fun Halloween, no matter how you celebrate it. Be mindful and respectful of other people, keep it clean folks.
