Zombie fever has taken over TV, and even Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital isn't immune to the trend. The upcoming "Grey's Anatomy" Halloween episode, "Thriller," appears to have taken some real-life inspiration from 2012's horrific "bath salts" attack, and we have an exclusive sneak peek at the TV twist on it now.

When a 30-year-old male mauling victim is rolled into the ER, the staff can't believe what he tells them: "He just attacked me. He came out of nowhere. He's snarling and growling. He started eating my face." The "he" in question isn't a rabid dog or a bear; it's a man.

"Zombie," says shocked intern Leah Murphy (Tessa Ferrer).

Moments later, the biter is rolled in, and he's spazzing out in typical zombie fashion. "He's on something," the EMT says.

"How is this guy stable? He's got two bullet holes over his heart," Murphy says in disbelief.

The intern can barely hear the patient's heart beating, so it comes as a real shock when he sits up and takes a massive bite out of her throat.

To find out who makes it out alive, tune in to "Grey's Anatomy" on Thursday, Oct. 31 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
