Perhaps something on the creepy, slimy side of the romance meter?
Mom always said she preferred hand-made gifts to store-bought presents.
So here's your chance.
Why not give your boo-loved a ghoulish, hand-made Zombie Puppet in your own disfigured image to remember you by while you're out on the prowl for brains...
Better yet, why not give each other a Zombie Avatar?!
Well, your slurred prayers have been answered.

Tonight's episode of "Crash & Burn" (10 pm EST on Showcase), entitled "Lawyers, Guns & Money", is special for so many reasons. This episode re-unites Enrico Colantoni ("Galaxy Quest", "Flashpoint", "Just Shoot Me") with his co-star from "ZOS - Zone of Separation", Michelle Nolden, as a couple with an extreme approach to marriage counseling.
Without giving away the episode, let's just say that Enrico's SWAT buddies from "Flashpoint" aren't far away. Nuff said.
The series' 8th episode also marks the broadcast licensing debut of not one -- but two -- of the short horror films from "AAAAAH!! Indie Horror Hits, Volume 1".
Eagle-eyed indie horror fans will catch glimpses of Christopher Alan Broadstone's "My Skin!" and Anthony Falcon's "The Ninth Entry" as part of a background montage on Enrico's editing console early in the episode.
If you like what you see and want more indie horror from indie filmmakers check out the collection at www.aaaaah-films.com - now on sale for $9.95.
If you miss tonight's airing check Showcase's show listings for re-broadcasts on Friday and Sunday evenings.
And, keep watching "Crash & Burn" because in episode 10 there's a cameo appearance by a certain 'Twisty Mustache Man' in the opening spot from Protected Insurance. Snidely Whiplash ain't got nothin' on me...
