ROTTING flesh, an urge to devour brains and a terrifying maze that could mean the difference between life and death. This is what awaits local residents with the return of the Word and Mouth Zombies Return: Last Bite event, as part of the Shepparton Festival.

After the success of the last two years, which saw more than 550 people witness the unspeakable maiming that occurred in the maze by a number of zombies, the zombies are returning over two nights, however people are being urged to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Aimed at young people primarily 15 and above due to the horror themes, the event promises to be one of Word and Mouth’s biggest events.

Word and Mouth project manager, Jim Gow said, “Some of our events are 200 plus hours in planning, this one in particular.

“The setup time alone is going to be a few days, not a few hours. Essentially it is going to be a big maze in a large indoor dark space, and providing you choose the right way through the maze, it will be simple. However, take a wrong turn and you might meet some new friends.
“It is going to be like you are in your own horror movie. You are the star. The one that makes those decisions that you scream at the TV during the movie to do. That is now you.”
The Zombies Return event will run from 8pm on Friday, March 11 to 12am on Saturday, March 12 at the Multi Purpose Pavilion, Shepparton Showgrounds, Shepparton.

Tickets for the event are $10, including the maze experience and a movie and are available from Riverlinks, or can purchased online at www.sheppartonfestival.org.au/events/zombies-return-the-last-bite/
