I am a very, very bad child of the 80s.

Last weekend I finally saw Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in its entirety. All 14 cheese-tastic minutes of it.

(In my defense, I was three when the video was released, and my parents do not have cable. But still, this is kinda embarrassing.)

And it made me wonder--what, exactly, is involved in an audition for a zombie movie? Do they ask aspiring zombies to stumble around the room? Is it possible to be typecast as a zombie? (Relatedly: is it at all desirable to be typecast as a zombie?)

Also: if you have not yet seen A Hard Day's Night of the Living Dead, what are you waiting for?
