Large Hadron Collider Unleashes Rampaging Zombies

•, By Rebecca Boyle

At first I thought the zombie trend was kind of played out, but then I saw this trailer. It’s another zombie film, but this one has the Large Hadron Collider! The Higgs field! “Decay” as one of the nerdiest plays-on-words ever! It’s great.

A bunch of physics PhD students made "Decay," which is set and filmed at the LHC in Switzerland. It is neither authorized nor endorsed by CERN, obviously, but that didn’t stop them from filming the huge ATLAS detector and CERN meeting rooms, and talking about the recently discovered Higgs boson.

As you can glean from the trailer, something bad happens to the LHC’s particle beam. Cautious scientists warn that experiments should shut down, but the hunt for the Higgs is “the highest priority,” says the evil fake CERN director. Then, zombies. It looks like radiation invades everyone’s brains as the smashed particles decay into constituent parts. Get it? Decay?
