A New Mexico man has reportedly beaten his friend to dead with the intention of stopping him from turning into a zombie after watching The Walking Dead.

23-year-old Christopher Paquin was allegedly beaten by 23-year-old Damon Perry, according to the AP. Perry told investigators they had been drinking when Paquin began "To change into a zombie," and tried to bite him.

Police say that Perry used his hands, feet, an electric guitar, and a microwave to beat Paquin. Sounds more like Dead Rising than Walking Dead, but in any case, authorities say that Perry attributed his actions to having recently binge-watched AMC's zombie drama, The Walking Dead, on Netflix.
