The description says it all, really. Dead Inside: Do Not Enter is what would happen if Post Secret and World War Z had a half-mad, scribble-happy child together.

Consisting of all of a hundred and sixty pages, Dead Inside: Do Not Enter is an unnervingly realistic mess of letters, sticky notes, text messages, stories, drawings, and more. It's a post-apocalyptic scrapbook cobbled together from remnants of fictional lives, and a look at how a zombie infestation can force the world to spiral out of control. It's also a damn fine example of what crowdsourcing can really do.

According to the introduction, Dead Inside was built upon a simple backstory: All the content contained within was found in the backpack of a 10-year-old girl who, prior to her own zombification, had been collecting those items for future references. Who is the person introducing us to the book? It's the guy who shot her in the head after she turned into a zombie. Yup. Heavy stuff, indeed.

While the story sounds interesting enough in its own right, what makes Dead Inside really impressive is that it’s all the collective work of Lost Zombies, a zombie-themed social network that is devoted to, among other things, producing a community-generated zombie movie.

Who said you needed explicit gore to make things super creepy? If you're interested in acquiring copy of Dead Inside: Do Not Enter, you should check it out on Amazon. (A word of warning, however: The price of entry is a little steep.)
