Hacked Montana Television Station Issues Zombie Doomsday Alert

Scary daytime viewing from Montana’s KRTV:

Someone apparently hacked into the Emergency Alert System and announced on KRTV and the CW that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties. This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.

    Not gonna lie: Despite being utterly convinced that zombies don’t (and can’t) exist, a lifetime of watching George A. Romero’s zombie films has left its toll: I’d probably lock the doors, grab my firearm and start rationing food before common sense would take hold. Damn you, Uncle George!

      NOTLD was the best, all others are bad copies.

        Loved NOTLD, but also loved his Dawn of the Dead and even Day of the Dead. (The latter can be charitably described as challenging viewing, though). I even liked Land of the Dead. Diary of the Dead was not so great and Survival of the Dead was a trainwreck from beginning to end. Zombies riding horses????

          I love zombie films but they have been getting really bad lately but i still watch them on the Chiller tv network, ever see I, Zombie ?

            I’ve not seen “I, Zombie”, but I agree that good zombie films are hard to find. Most of the ones I’ve liked recently have been non-traditional or arguably not zombie films at all: 28 Days Later, The Signal, Pontypool, etc.

            Another good one, but not a traditional zombie movie is, “Cemetery Man”.

    Having worked as a broadcast operator I can tell you this is a serious fucking felony. Don’t mess with EAS.

  3. Ha! Good ol’ KRTV, It was the closest TV station to where I grew up in Eastern MT. Freak out? Montana? Hell no! They probably welcomed it. After all, there’s damn little enough to do out there, declaring Zombie season would probably help break the winter up a bit…
