For the past nine years, the Zombie Defense Initiative has given citizens an experience that they could find nowhere else. Until now. This year the Nightmare isn't about battling the Zombie Menace, but it is about celebrating a cure. This year, more than ever, we need to have a happening that will unite citizens looking for escape. There will be maps with official boundaries. ?Some of the businesses might appear to be boarded up, vegetation may reclaim derelict buildings, trash may be strewn everywhere, burning tires and barrels of toxic waste littering the streets, abandoned cars, buses and even airplanes damaged and overturned. Do not fear! Your safety is our number one concern. Some steadfast businesses will be open for you to get food, beverages, shelter, and provisions.

Located in Elgin’s industrial section stands the abandoned home of Elgin Casket Company. This once proud building has been witness to murder, grisly discoveries, cult activities, and unexplained occurrences, and a dark legacy has emerged from its sordid history. Visitors still regularly report encounters with some of the former residents that now roam the decayed hallways and abandoned factory floors.Now the Elgin Ghost Society is spending the night to make contact with the reported ghosts that still walk its hallways. What they’ll awaken will redefine terror. Evil will be unleashed, and death is the only escape.
