Emily Lamere, 14, was watching the show in her bedroom and couldn't control her screams as zombies attacked her favorite characters.

“I didn't think that the police would show up,” she told INSIDE EDITION. “We turned the TV on really loud and so it would scare us more.”

The screams were so loud, her neighbor thought someone was actually being threatened, so the woman called 911.

Suddenly cops surrounded the family home in Great Falls, Montana and were demanding Emily’s dad come out with his hands up.

Emily says she'll probably scream again next time she watches, but promised: “Next time I watch I will turn down the TV and close the windows.”
