The Zombie Cause Cast. From L to R – Zombie Boy “ZB”, Silent Blade, Pappy 5X, Headshot and Doc Ruger.
The Zombie Cause refers to the gestalt of zombie hunting, but it also refers more specifically to the pod of zombie hunters highlighted in this documentary series. Follow the zombologist Dr. Ruger, his three sons, Headshot, Silent Blade, and Zombie Boy along with Pappy5X as they seek to survive and educate others about the zombie necropocalypse. This “webisode” series has been released in conjunction with the interactive “The Zombie Cause Dictionary“. Please go to our Zombie Cause YouTube Channel to view all of the Zombie Cause webisodes.
This is not a fantasy show like the “The Walking Dead”, this is the real deal. Watch these videos, take notes, read The Zombie Cause Dictionary, and subscribe to the Zombie Cause channel and our blog.
Follow Doc Ruger at his home (The Zomberosa) as he raises his three sons to be formidable zombie hunters. Armed with multiple zombie hunting weapons and sage advice from legendary zombie hunter Pappy 5X the zombie cause crew attempts to survive zombie attacks and each other.
WE WILL BE NEEDING ZOMBIE EXTRAS FOR THE SHOW (we occasionally do reenactments of previous real events). BE SURE TO SIGN UP FOR EMAIL UPDATES TO THIS BLOG SO YOU ARE AWARE OF CASTING CALLS!
So I come to find out the guy that is on the documentary show “The Walking Dead” is just an actor not a zombie hunter. His real life name is Michael Rooker and he played the character of Merle on the Walking Dead. He assured me that his parts were reenactments, but all the rest of the series was a true documentary. This is good to know as I was beginning to doubt the veracity of the show. He did say when not acting he does do a little zombie hunting on the side, his weapon of choice is the M1911 semi auto pistol (one of Headshot’s favorite guns). Nice guy, fun getting to spend the evening with him.

We are now getting out some of the film clips posted from the horde shoot done a couple of months ago. We are still busy working on the sizzle reel, but we have been slowed down by several editors either being consumed or turning (an occupational hazard if you are going to be working with zombies). This first one is sort of an introduction of Pappy 5X as he confronts zombies at the front gate. If you enjoy the clip please pass it on to friends. http://youtu.be/rI6hyAGfqho More clips to follow in the next few days.
Our friends at Growing Bolder TV did a behind the scenes look at the filming of the Zombie Cause. You can check out their most excellent coverage of one of our film shoots HERE.
Over the next few weeks we will be posting photos from the “horde shoot” make sure you are receiving email updates to the blog by clicking on the email update in the right sidebar.
Zombie Animation virus commonly infects families.
If you see this on your doorstep he’s probably not selling bibles.
Silent blade demonstrates how to walk through a horde. If you rub your skin with fresh cut zombie parts the other zombies won’t notice you . . . sometimes.
Just another typical day at the Zomborosa.
Yes some zombies have good dentition.
The Zombie Cause ™ will be filming a sizzle reel for a reality show on Saturday Aug 16th. We need more zombies.
Emergency Alert! Lucky is in desperate need of zombies on Saturday August 16th. The “Zombie Cause™” is filming a sizzle reel for pitching itself as a reality show. Lana Turner was discovered at a soda fountain; therefore you could very well be discovered as part of a horde attack (probably not). This could be your ticket to Hollywood lights, fame, success, fortune (sadly we are referring to future fortune, which you will be propelled into as this is a non-paying gig). So here are the things you need to do to help Lucky out. (we need about 50-60 zombies for our horde so bring friends – you can tell them they will be handsomely paid as long as you do the paying). If you have never seen a Zombie Cause video then check out this commercial that the Zombie Cause filmed for the Zombie Survival Store. (short edited versions of this are currently showing as TV commercials locally – at least the ones that weren’t banned). CLICK HERE
1. Email him your intent to participate or leave a dismembered hand or foot with your name on it at his doorstep.
2. Non- swimmer zombies should arrive around 8:15 for makeup.
3.The film shooting will be from about 9am to 11:30am. We will have a full professional film crew on site (This is a serious film shoot)
4. We will have drinks and refreshments for all zombies.
5. Don’t wash hair or shave (the longer the better)
6. We have zombie clothes but if you have your own feel free to bring them. No Logos on clothes. Don’t cut clothes with scissors only tear or rip the clothes. Really dirty / muddy clothes are the best and really beat up muddy shoes are excellent.
7. For swimmers we will ask most men to go shirtless (You may insert your own witty comment about our female swimmers here, but I am not going there).
8. This can be a family affair (just like the Ebola virus), but if you are bringing children they must be able to follow directions and especially not smile (we will have smile police and if any zombies are smiling they will be pulled and set on fire.)
9. Don’t apply your own zombie makeup we will give you the look you need.
10. We will give everyone some SWAG at the end of the shoot for participating.
For a little more on how to walk and act like a Zombie Cause ™ zombie please watch this video “How to be a Zombie Cause™ zombie.”
Many thanks for your help on this. Lucky

It is very hard to collect “choppers” aka rolling choppers, which are decapitated zombie heads that remain living for a few days, if the nano tubular network is not too disrupted during decapitation. We have found a higher success rate when we harvest choppers underwater than on land. We are not sure why, but it may have to do with slowing down of the decapitation process, or possibly the water redistributing the vector forces away from the nano tubular network. Below you can see Doc Ruger in a “chomper vat” with a successful collection attempt. It is best to be in the vat and have your assistant drop the zombie in rather that getting in a vat with a zombie. The zombie is usually disoriented for a moment on entry and that is when it, best to attempt the decapitation. Normally the assistant would stand at the top looking down with a gun at the ready, but Headshot put his protective suit over his holsters so he is seen climbing down to take off the suit. This could have been a real problem for Doc Ruger had the decapitation attempt not been successful on the first try.

Check out the Zombie Risk Bite Calculator or we will kill this zombie. Please post your results and email the link to friends that might be at risk.
If you ever watched CBS’s “The Magic World of Allakazam” in the sixties, then you saw Rebo the Clown. Now we can’t document Rebo as being a zombie hunter, but this photo with Doc Ruger of the Zombie Cause makes one think . . . perhaps there is more to Rebo the Clown that you might think.
