SDCC 2015 – Vikings Bludgeon Booth

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

To promote their show ‘Vikings’ at San Diego Comic-Con, History channel has set up a “Bludgeon Booth” at the convention.

In the Bludgeon Booth, attendees get dressed up in Viking garb, choose their weapon, and, with all the strength and battle rage they can muster, slam the weapon down on a platform, upon which an attendant sprays them with red, sugary blood. This entire event is recorded in slow motion, mixed with footage from the show, and emailed to the attendee to do with as they wish. The above video is my own run through the booth; it was a lot of fun!

What do attendees get for participating in the Bludgeoning Box, aside from the satisfaction of being coated in fake blood? A Vikings comic book, and a Vikings-branded drinking horn, which also allows the owner discounts on beer at select bars in the gaslamp district.

Easily one of the best booths at this year’s SDCC.

Get Your Zombie On With The History Channel Tonight!

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Tonight, The History Channel will debut “Zombies: A Living History”. Featuring some of our favorite Zombie authors Max Brooks, Jonathon Maberry and JL Bourne, this documentary takes a look at Zombies through a historical lens.

Examining not only the voodoo Zombie but also the modern apocalyptic Zombie myth, “Zombies: A Living History” considers what makes the phenomenon just so damned scary. And oh yeah, there will be some guns in the show too.
