Nothing is quite as terrifying as the prospect of a zombie apocalypse. The living don’t stand a chance in the face of hordes of brain-devouring undead – or do they? The “Myth Buster” gang is about to put it to the test to find out whether the living can outsmart the undead, should a zombie apocalypse occur.
To set the stage for the invasion of zombies, “Myth Busters” consulted special effects expert Greg Nicotero from KNB EFX Group, who provides the special effects for “Day of the Dead” and “Walking Dead”.
Nicotero provided “Myth Busters” with a description of what Zombies can and cannot do. "They're not very quick. They're attracted to sound. ... (And) they're not very smart,” he told TODAY.
The scenario will be set in the cemetery scene from “The Night of the Living Dead” with 150 volunteers as Zombies; the “Myth Busters” team is tasked with escaping a Zombie attack.
Will they come out of it alive, or will the Zombies overtake them on national TV? Tune in to Discovery at 10/9c on October 17 to find out.
