It’s true: Prom sucks. The age-old tradition of having some dude ask you to prom and then going manically insane until the day of, just to pose for photos outside your house with a bunch of so-called friends and dread whether or not you’re going to have sex at the end of night, sucks major balls. No, we’re not bitter. The Zombie Prom hopes to eradicate all of that high school anxiety we’re still carrying around by creating a prom the way it’s supposed to be: with zombies! This dance has it all—contests, a zombie photobooth, no one under 21 (!), and music by Undead Deb. Though the best part about Zombie Prom is that, for once, blood at a dance is a good thing. Carrie would approve.
