    Titled "The Stalking Dead," the sketch from filmmakers Kimmy Foskett and Liza Renzulli of CHIX Productions hilariously sums up what it's like to social-media-stalk your date and the horrors you find when you do.

    Foskett and Renzulli incorporated The Walking Dead in part because β€” let's face it β€” online dating is kind of terrifying.

How can you not do some detective work on the internet?"

    "We think this rings true for people because you do actually feel a like a zombie when you go down the stalking rabbit hole," Foskett added.
