Man Allegedly Kills Friend Over Zombie Fears After Binge Watching ‘Walking Dead'

After binge watching a popular show about zombies, a New Mexico man believed his friend was turning into one — so he brutally beat him to death last week, police said.

Prior to the alleged crime last Thursday, Damon Perry, 23, watched the AMC show "The Walking Dead" on Netflix and drank "multiple" 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor with a friend at a relative's apartment, Grants Police spokesman Moses Marquez told NBC News.

Then, Perry told police, the victim, Christopher Paquin, 23, tried "to bite him," according to a statement from cops.

Perry "reacted by brutally beating" Paquin with his hands and feet, the release said, and with an electric guitar, kitchen knives and a microwave.
