Zombies vs. Contracts

An event based on the popular TV show "The Walking Dead" took place here in Baton Rouge late last month, and something truly scary happened. But it didn't involve zombies. A local special effects company produced about 250 silicone masks for the event and is now out more than $200,000, because the event producers decided to rent the masks instead of buying them as previously agreed.
