The Walker Stalker Con came to town this past weekend, bringing cast members from The Walking Dead, Z Nation and more, as well as Freddie Krueger himself — actor Robert Englund — for a graveyard full of fun. And Denver was ready, as was photographer Aaron Thackeray, who captured all of the zombie action.
