Tube Bite Leads to Zombie Movie

Bryony Matthewman was bitten on the London Underground and the experience inspired her to create a Internet Zombie Movie. When I first heard about this through
Channel 4's 4Talent, I thought that she'd had a mosquito bite. But it wasn't. A man who'd been asleep on the Tube, woke up, bit her arm and ran off. Rather than being totally freaked out by this, she ... errr ... naturally thought "Mmm maybe this guy was a zombie?". She explains what happened below:

Unfortunately the movie wasn't produced in time for Halloween, but it looks like "World Wide Dead" it's nearly finished and BBC3 have made a documentary about its making.

As it was created on the internet, you can expect a huge amount of arguments, discussion, change of direction, strops, artistic differences, toys being thrown out of prams etc etc. But I spose that's what makes the internet fun. Good luck to Bryony and the team behind the Internet Zombie Movie (perhaps it'll be the new Dead Set or at least better than other Tube Zombie / Horror films - Raw Meat aka Death Line & Creep). I just hope I'm not unlucky enough to sit next to the biting bloke on the Tube!
