A Malaysian youngster dressed as zombie chases participants of a zombie run inside a jungle in the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur on February 2, 2013. The zombies' goal is to take away runners' tags before they reach the race's finishing point in the one-day event. Zombie runs are already popular in the US and other countries. Malaysia has long had an interest in the supernatural rooted in age-old legends. Horror films have become increasingly popular in recent years after effectively being banned in the Muslim-majority country for three decades for celebrating the other-worldly in violation of Islamic teachings.But since popular culture was allowed to relax in the past decade, horror movies have sprouted. In 2011, the genre made up more than a third of domestic movies. AFP PHOTO / Saeed KHAN (Photo credit should read SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images)
