Happy Halloween! This season I’ve been pondering the fleshier parts of horror and sci-fi tales, and while it’s a topic albeit maybe not largely important to the masses, the citizens of New Orleans may take special note if only for the laissez-faire spirit certain holidays are known to embody. Public displays of “whatever is clever” occur more frequently given the time of year, and let’s face it, October 31st in the Crescent City has been known to produce some memorable evenings. Certainly many a vampire will be out this eve, a moss man or two perchance, likely some political free-for-all in play, and *okay okay* surely a bevy of slutty nurses (and likely other leggy first responders too). Invariably there will be cleavage, skin, and other epidermic revelations, but my main concern this column deals primarily with zombies and aliens and the applicable integration of the nude or semi-nude therein.
In all seriousness, ask yourself, have you ever seen a naked zombie? Likely not, at least not in the mainstream, maybe not even in the B-stream either.
