Walking Tables Creep Me Out

When I was about 9 years old, I stayed up late one night, after my parents were asleep, and discovered one of the most horrifying films I'd ever seen: "Night of The Living Dead." That damn movie haunted me for weeks after (OK, maybe years) and has kept me fascinated with the walking dead in an assortment of zombie films.

I confess there's something terrifying about a slow-walking, lifeless yet determined flesh eater hot on your tasty trail. When I came across this video of a walking table, that zombie image popped immediately into my head, and I couldn't look away. It's creepy, but cool. There's an extended video of it, in case you want to dream about being chased by a table along the beach. If you're looking for a more whimsical take on a "living" table, check out this drunk one. Have fun. And please don't blame me for any nightmares. I have enough issues of my own.
