Well folks, some might find it sad to say, but the Centers for Disease Control has made it official — there’s not going to be a zombie apocalypse.


Agency spokesman David Daigle told The Huffington Post, “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).”

If you’re anything like us then you might be a slightly depressed about this news.

Last year the CDC made a mockumental blog post about what to do in the event of a zombie outbreak.

With this recent announcement and the real life zombie attack in Florida it almost seems like damage control. Are they trying to calm anxiety or is this just a conspiracy-theorists dream cover-up scenario?

Either way most horror nuts will remain hopeful that some day they might be gunning down the reanimated corpse of their high school principal. Until then the zombie apocalypse will just have to remain a wonderfully disturbing dream.
