The Outbreak: Would you survive a zombie attack?

According to the movies, being a fan of the genre is the second best way to survive an attack by any horror movie monster (the best way, natch, is to be a virginal high school girl with lots of slutty, druggy friends). You can put those hard-earned skills to the test with The Outbreak, an interactive choose-your-own-adventure style movie made by design firm SilkTricky, who prominently feature clips from Shogun Assassin on their website, making them okay in my book.

It took me more tries than I'd like to admit to make it through unscathed. I blame the POV character for not following Zombie Killin' Rule Number One: aim for the head, duh.
