ROCKFORD (WREX) - We've been talking about it and getting ready for weeks. On Saturday, more than a hundred zombies came together at Rockford College to show off their dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

This is part of "Thrill the World," which is a global simultaneous performance of the dance in an effort to break a world record. The Rockford performers did this in conjunction with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

A long list of zombies crawled over from the WREX graveyard to take part, too, although with their costumes and makeup they were almost unrecognizable.
