There are worse things than being trapped in a house surrounded by hungry zombies. For instance, you could be a black man in that situation, which almost guarantees your spot on a zombie buffet. Dunno why. Just seems to work out that way. Should you find yourself surrounded by gray-skinned, slow-moving not-quite-dead folk looking for a noshâand you're not at Luby'sâyou probably don't want to be the woman in the room with the biggest breasts. Zombie survival rates for well-endowed women are pretty low too. There are other rules for judging your chances of surviving an undead assault, but we have limited space. So, if you are planning a vacation in zombie-infested regions, we suggest you check out Texas Frightmare Weekend, a celebration of horror flicks and all things spooky. It kicks off with a special screening of Night of the Living Dead at the Inwood Theater (sold out) Thursday night, and continues through Sunday at the Hilton DFW Lakes, 1800 Highway 26 East in Grapevine, with movie screenings, appearances by stars and a variety of panels and vendors.
