Hillary Clinton compares Republicans to zombies in new Halloween campaign ad

Not even Halloween festivities, it seems, can provide a shelter from the 2016 presidential campaign. Just in time for your annual Dawn of the Dead marathon, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a new ad comparing her Republican opponents’ policy proposals to zombies. 

Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ben Carson, among other Republican contenders, have publicly said they’d like to overturn Roe V. Wade and defund Planned Parenthood, two huge resources for womens’ health in America. To hammer the point home, the video’s description of these proposals is narrated over a scene of zombies attacking a woman in a graveyard. 

It’s almost too easy. Mix the standard campaign-ad soundbites with classic scenes of B-movie zombies, and stir in the ominous line, “Just when you thought it was safe…”

Watch the full video above, have a laugh, and try not to let politics get in the way of your zombie movie marathon.
