For many, physics was that one high school subject that just never sunk in. And though physicists at CERN have had quite a busy year discovering the Higgs boson, they’ve somehow managed to set aside time to explain physics to the rest of us in a new self-produced horror flick called "Decay."
"Decay" is a 75-minute zombie flick, splattered with corn syrup blood and driven by terrifying plot twists. In the film, exposure to the Higgs boson particle is what turns innocent researchers into brain eating zombies.
While the film doesn’t show "real" science, the satire does engage the public with particle physics in an entertaining way.
Burton DeWilde is a former doctoral student conducting research at CERN, and the co-producer, director of photography, and editor of "Decay."
