06/17/2003: "Monsters on the loose!"
First, we have zombies in Columbia:
The last thing Andrea Fernandez recalls before being drugged is holding her newborn baby on a Bogota city bus. Police found her three days later, muttering to herself and wandering topless along the median strip of a busy highway. Her face was badly beaten and her son was gone. Fernandez is just one of hundreds of victims every month who, according to Colombian hospitals, are temporarily turned into zombies by a home-grown drug called scopolamine which has been embraced by thieves and rapists.
And then we have decapitated corpses showing up near Castle Frankenstein:
BERLIN (Reuters) - German police are investigating the discovery of a headless body near castle Frankenstein in Germany, a ruin many see as the inspiration for the novel about the mad scientist who made a monster from body parts.
I was tired of living in a war film, but a horror film is not an improvement. I want a light musical comedy.
