Unhand that Woman!

The gal's a real sport, you got to give her that - standing so close to big, gross me!

I get to sell my zombie books in the Dawn of the Dead mall, next to a smart and pretty woman like Julia: how exactly could my life get better?

Now that is a prime location! Sounds like you have good help, too. What's it like to actually be there rather than simply see it on the movie screen? Is there anything you notice being there in person that you didn't before?

It's very moving, being there where it actually happened, but the mall is completely different, so mostly you notice how things are different than in shots that you remember.

Watching Dawn of the Dead, that makes a lot of sense. I mean, while it can hardly be the director's original meaning, I notice the mall looks a lot like the malls here in Colorado that got old and closed, so in my mind when I watch the original, the setting always gives me a certain capitalist gothic vibe.

oh most definitely. Though the area around Monroeville Mall has sprawled with the various "box stores," and they've added a separate outdoor "District" of more upscale shopping and dining, the original layout of the mall is very 70s: it's one long box, with anchor stores at both ends and one in the middle. It reminds me very much of the original Tyson's Corner (which was even more primitive, in that it was "only" one floor).
