How to Survive a Zombie Attack with Matt Mogk

Learn about Matt Mogk, one of Howcast's zombie experts, in this video.


Hi. I'm Matt Mogk; I'm the Head of the Zombie Research Society, and author of 'Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies'. Zombie Research Society is a group of academics, and artists and enthusiasts who are interested in advancing the knowledge and respect of zombies in science and survival.

I've always been obsessed with zombies. When I was a little kid, before I go to sleep at night, I would imagine zombies in my head in hopes of having a zombie nightmare, because I figured it was like a free movie. I didn't have to borrow money from my mom or get my sister to drive me to the theater; I could just watch a zombie movie in my head.

I got a Masters from NYU Film School, where I actually studied horror and cinema, and did my Master's thesis on zombies. Then through a series of circumstances, I ended up joining the French Foreign Legion, which if you don't know, is the Mercenary Wing of the French Military. There, I got some survival skills and combat skills. Finally, I ended up working at a disease research company in downtown Los Angeles that focused on serious infectious and deadly diseases. I didn't know at the time, but all these experiences led right up to starting Zombie Research Society and really looking at the unrealized threat of zombies as a potential world-ender.
