Sunday December 1st is the mid-season finale of WALKING DEAD – and fans are celebrating in at the largest Viewing Party in the area
LAS VEGAS – Nov. 25, 2013 WALKING DEAD is the hottest show on television. It has a legion of fans who tune in every week to see what newest struggle awaits the show’s heroes in the zombie apocalypse. Something new has been rising up in conjunction with these episodes – the WALKING DEAD Viewing Parties. This is a phenomena whereby a group of fans gather in a public place to watch the newest episode together. In Las Vegas the WALKING DEAD Viewing Parties are at Hi-Scores Bar-Arcade and have taken on the vibe and energy of a mini zombie convention. Zombie Zone, Zombien Nation, Zomby Vegas, LVL Up Expo, and Cosmic Comics are among the merchants who set up each week and bring out their WALKING DEAD and zombie gear. Fans come dressed up as their favorite character – or zombie – from pop culture. A trivia contest is held during each commercial break where fans can win a variety of prizes, there are raffle drawings all night long, and there is even karaoke hosted by Karate Karaoke after the episode until the end of the night.
The fun kicks off at 9pm with Sirc Michaels and the cast of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL serving as hosts. They are available to take pics with fans, get people excited for the upcoming episode, and set the tone of excitement or the evening.
For those fans who worry about watching an episode in a loud rowdy bar – never fear! The episode is shown on every screen in the bar and the sound is played over every speaker. Fans quiet down for the episode itself so every walker groan, every thunk of a knife, every hiss of a crossbow bolt can be heard.
There is nothing like this event anywhere in Las Vegas, and now that the mid-season finale is coming, the party on December 1st will be even wilder. Fans who attend will be offered tickets to see EVIL DEAD the weekend of December 6th. There will be more prizes, more madness, and even an appearance by the entire cast of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL – including everyone’s favorite hero Ash.
“There is nothing like these events anywhere in town,” said Sirc Michaels, producer and director of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL. “From the unqiue and fun merchandise to the costumes to the karaoke to watching the episode with a room full of fans, the energy and excitement at these things is something you have to experience to believe.”
With all those people and activities, it would be easy to image that hearing the show itself when it is turned on would be a challenge. But according to Michaels, that couldn’t be further from the truth. “There is a great amount of noise and activity from 9pm to 9:30pm, which is the warm-up before the episode itself. Once 9:30pm hits, WALKING DEAD is shown on over 2 dozen screens – including a giant screen in the video game room – and everyone quiets down to watch. Except for the cheers, gasps, and applause at the big moments, which really heightens the entire experience of watching this show.”
During commercial breaks, Michaels and Ash from EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL present trivia questions and give out prizes ranging from original artwork to WALKING DEAD merchandise to comic books to packs of tickets to EVIL DEAD. Fans compete for the prizes, which adds an element of fun to the proceedings. Once the episode is over, the party continues with karaoke, photo opportunities, and shopping until at least midnight.
“The WALKING DEAD episode is the heart of the event,” says Michaels, “But it is by no means the entirety of it. There is stuff to do before and after the show, and we try to make it as fun as possible for everyone who comes out.”
Doors to THE WALKING DEAD Mid-Season Finale Viewing Party at Hi Scores Bar-Arcade open at 9pm this Sunday and the party runs until midnight. For details about Evil Dead: The Musical, visit www.evildeadvegas.com.

The Ouija board also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0-9, the words “yes”, “no”, “hello” (occasionally), and “goodbye”, along with various symbols and graphics. It is a registered trademark of Hasbro Inc, which markets and distributes the Ouija board as part of its line of board games. It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood) or movable indicator to indicate the spirit’s message by spelling it out on the board during a séance. Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. “Ouija” has become a trademark that is often used generically to refer to any talking board.

If you still did not watch Brutal then do so now! This horror movie is recommended. Check out the trailer below.
Dear Bianca, thank you for accepting our interview.
You’re quite welcome! Thank you for having me.
How did you get involved in acting?
I transitioned into acting from modeling. After I moved to Los Angeles, I started working on student films, doing background work for major television shows(According to Jim), and even some audience work for game shows and courtroom shows(Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown). It really allowed me to understand how the technical side of the production worked.
From where did you start acting?
Well, my first big break was working with cult film maker, Ramzi Abed, in his film, The Devil’s Muse. I then worked with him again on In a Spiral State. I landed Albino Farm from have experience wearing prosthetic makeup appliances. (I had worn extensive appliances in the film Canes, but the scene I am in is barely shown in the film.) After Albino Farm, I was able to join the Screen Actors Guild, which is really important to serious actors.
Did you perform in any horror movies? Which ones?
Yes! Most of my resume is of horror films – Albino Farm, My Sucky Teen Romance, The Evil Inside, The Toy Box- those are just a few. As much as I love horror films, I would like to branch out and try new genres.
Are you working on any current projects?
Yes, I have two major feature length films in pre-production, but I am contractually bound to keep my mouth shut.
Playing Charlotte in my husband’s kinky short horror film, M is for Marriage, was a lot of fun. Anything that lets me play dress up or get into costume makes me happy. It is all about being in the moment and playing make believe.
What was your biggest achievement in the field of acting?
I haven’t had it yet, but having Albino Farm play on Showtime was really great. Also, winning the Golden Cobb Award for Best Rising B Actress was awesome.
What kind of roles do you prefer?
I prefer darker characters that have more to them than meets the eye. I like expressing the complexity of being human. I also like films set in a different time period because the costuming is interesting.
Which is your favorite film?
If I had to choose only one, it would be American Beauty.
Who is your favorite actor?
I love Nicole Kidman, Zach Galifianakis and Joaquin Phoenix.
Exorcism is the practice of evicting demons or other spiritual entities from a person or an area they are believed to have possessed. Depending on the spiritual beliefs of the exorcist, this may be done by causing the entity to swear an oath, performing an elaborate ritual, or simply by commanding it to depart in the name of a higher power. The practice is ancient and part of the belief system of many cultures and religions.
On the other side Demonic possession is not a valid psychiatric or medical diagnosis recognized by either the DSM-IV or the ICD-10. Those who profess a belief in demonic possession have sometimes ascribed to possession the symptoms associated with physical or mental illnesses, such as hysteria, mania, psychosis, Tourette’s syndrome, epilepsy, schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder.
What Do you think?
Inside Shadows strives to take the genre back to its traditional roots of the ghost story. 2.5 years in the making, Chris Silver’s debut feature film was produced with just a few hundred pounds as everything else was donated, begged for or discreetly ‘borrowed’.
