Thanks to everybody who took the time to put together an entry for the ER 2011 Zombie Haiku Contest.
Entries were very varied and unique... some evoked zombies of the silver screen while others reimagined comic book superheroes as head-chomping monsters. Sports were skewered, holidays were zombified and some people, well, just seemed to like writing about zombies.
But when it was all said and done our celebrity judges (Louis Fowler of Damaged Hearing/Damaged Viewing, Deadvida from RIGOR MORTIS and AMY'S IN THE ATTIC director Matthew Saliba) had one overwhelming, consensus favorite...
Zombies holding signs
"We ate 99 percent!"
Congratulations to the mysterious "M" for their entry. Will the academy look back years from now and wonder if the timeliness of the haiku helped push it over the top? I'll leave that topic for the haiku contest historians.
In the meantime, thanks again to all our judges, sponsors and prize contributors: Louis Fowler, Deadvida, Matthew Saliba, Damaged Hearing, Damaged Viewing, Rigor Mortis, BlackFlag.tv, B-Movie.com, AMCNetworks 'The Walking Dead' for participation, sponsorship and support!
