Every October on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," show writer Amy Rhodes is forced to endure a hilarious walk-thru of a Los Angeles haunted attraction. This year, DeGeneres kindly gave her a partner, executive producer Andy Lassner. The pair were sent to experience a recreation of the prison from AMC zombie-thriller "The Walking Dead;" with DeGeneres calling the results "one of my favorite things I've ever seen in my life."

Enjoy the video below - and Happy Halloween!
