Zombies, mermaids, a nun with a chainsaw
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC at 9 p.m. Sunday, with most fans looking forward to Season 8 for the promise of Rick Grimes and his followers finally kicking some Savior butt. As Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who portrays the maniacal Negan, recently told the New York Daily News during a break in filming, “There’s a lot of blood this year.”
South Florida is beginning to feel the grip of the macabre, with a weekend that includes a nun with a chainsaw, barflies with baseball bats and, perhaps the most horrifying, men in tights. Proceed at your own risk … women in the 2018 Hooters Calendar will be in Boca Raton on Friday to sign autographs beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Enigma Haunt (1751 N. Military Trail) and 8 p.m. at the Hooters restaurant at 2240 NW19th St. Sable Robbert, of Pembroke Pines, who toured the world after winning the 2016 Miss Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant, also will be on hand. A dollar from every calendar benefits breast cancer research through the Kelly Jo Dowd Fund and the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Visit Facebook.com/SouthFloridaHooters. Enigma Haunt also is raising funds for charity, with a portion of each online ticket going to the Don’t Be a Monster Anti-Bullying Initiative (DontBeAMonster.org). Visit EnigmaHaunt.com.
The Haunted Pirate Fest & Mermaid Splash is Saturday and Sunday in Boynton Beach.
