HaunTopic News and the Zombie Craze

The first Zombie Tag of 2011 in Johnson City, TN

The Hollow has been...well, hollow for some time now. I've felt the pressures of getting a new semester started in college as well as other issues sorted out. Fortunately, most things have been set into motion once again and I hope to contribute more frequently to the blog. Another issue I've run across is the discovery that there are so many wonderful resources already in existence for the Halloween and haunted attraction industries, that I feel lacking in providing something that hasn't already been covered. I'm working on trying to come up with something unique. I think more often than not, Facebook, Twitter, and podcasts are the main source for news and information.

Speaking of podcasts, I have been asked by the crew from HaunTopic Radio to assist in gathering news and information for the show and I'm excited to be doing so. I hope that some of you might remember my article on HaunTopic Radio from June and for those that do not, feel free to check it out here.

If any blog followers are "haunters" and would like to share any exciting news and information from the world of haunting (whether it be pro or home) or Halloween, please drop me a line and we can see about having your news featured on the show.

Also, one of the classes I am taking this semester is a course on collective behavior and I'm considering writing my paper on the zombie craze (*edit* after consulting my professor, the "zombie movement" is considered a fad, not a craze) that has been sweeping the world the past several years. I am most interested in people participating in group events such as zombie walks/run, zombie tag, etc. If you have participated in such events and would like to share your experiences, I'd love to read or hear them (by Skype etc..) In addition to including the information in my paper and presentation, I would like be glad to feature these stories on the blog. 

As always email any information or news to

It's been too long for thanks and so I'd like to give a shout out to r_l_anger_jr, rickyelvikingodark, Haunted Lawns, wickEd, and Jason Nickols for taking the time to follow this little blog.
