What is the Zombie Walk?

[Facebook] [Twitter]

Zombie walks have become relatively common in large cities, especially in North America, often becoming annual traditions, though some are also spontaneous “flash mob” events or performance art; many zombie walks in the United States (US) have been “hunger marches”, whereby the intention is to raise awareness on the issue of world hunger. Promoted primarily through word of mouth and online message boards, zombie walks are an underground activity. During the event participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies and to communicate only in a manner consistent with zombie behavior. This may include grunting, groaning and slurred, moaning calls for ‘brains’. Zombie behavior is a hot topic of debate. Purists who draw their definitions from the original Romero Living Dead films will claim that a zombie would never have the ability to call for ‘brains’ and furthermore that a zombie needs only living or freshly killed flesh for its sustenance, and not the brain in particular.

The complexity and purpose of some zombie walks have grown and changed with their popularity. An advanced technique to heighten interest and realism, some zombie mobs will “eat” victims to create new zombies, in sight of onlookers. The better coordinated zombie mobs will establish a route and an easily recognizable signal, so that other participants can plant themselves, appearing as an otherwise ordinary human, along the route in old, tearable clothes, and as the mob shambles along it can discover and devour new victims. As the zombies surround the new victim to loudly feed, concealing him or her from witnesses’ view, they tear clothes and quickly apply makeup and fake blood, to create a new zombie, who then shambles along with the ever-expanding pack to find new victims. Some participants occasionally dress up as soldiers who are called in to contain the outbreak, or survivors who are trying to defend themselves from the onslaught of the zombie horde. Some events are staged as spoof political rallies organized “to raise awareness of zombie rights”, with participants carrying placards. Many zombie walks have also been staged as “hunger marches” with the intent of raising awareness of world hunger and collecting items for food banks.

Zombies: A Living History

[Facebook] [Twitter]

 

MOST people believe zombies are a relatively recent phenomenon that grew out of comic books, movies and TV.

Our current fascination is obvious with The Walking Dead on the small screen, movies such as the upcoming World War Z and even Britain’s annual Brighton Zombie Walk which will take place for a sixth time in October 2012.

This HISTORY special explores the real story of these flesh-eating horrors, beginning at the dawn of civilisation and continuing right through to today.
While the starting point for our modern view is George A. Romero’s 1968 movie The Night of the Living Dead, the first written reference can be found in the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh, mankind’s oldest work of literature.

We are then taken through the myths of various cultures across the ages and it’s no surprise that Europe’s Black Plague became one of the most prolific periods for zombie tales, because mankind was surrounded by sickness and death.

Of course, just one zombie would not be much of a problem at all but they always seem to come in packs, reflecting the way in which real-life communities have been overwhelmed by disease and armies of pillaging invaders.

Completing the construction of the creature familiar from modern fiction is the Western revulsion for cannibalism; and our concerns about mankind creating viruses and monstrosities by tampering with nature – as seen in the Greek myth of Prometheus, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and modern-day biological warfare.

The DVD then moves on from history, legend and fiction to the idea of the zombie apocalypse, treating it as though it might actually happen. Some of the same ground is covered as in that that famous Centers for Disease Control blog advising us on how to prepare for such an event.

The various presenters discussed their weapons of choice and there was also a short section on guns and ammo which, in the light of the Colorado cinema shooting, may prove a sensitive topic for some viewers.

There was a good use of contributors including Max Brooks, author of World War Z, who featured prominently.

Overall, this documentary special is well made and offered plenty of information and background to place zombies in a historical and cultural context.

It also introduced me to the terms ‘Bug In’ and ‘Bug Out’, the former meaning barricading yourself in a secure place and the latter meaning to flee to the wilderness. Now we will be able to tweet the correct phrases when the ravenous, gruesome hordes of undead are seeking their next meal on our doorsteps.

Zombies: A Living History is now out on DVD.

Zombie Fest Special Effects Makeup

[Facebook] [Twitter]

You don’t need to be a professional make-up artist to create a genuine zombie look. There a various ways to create great special effects by using inexpensive items from home. From fake blood to the goriest of wounds it s all very easily achievable without spending a truckload on professional special effects products. Get creative when adding texture to your wounds.

Paint a coat of liquid latex on the area where you wish to create a wound and let that dry. Use pieces of toilet paper rolled up on the sides to create tears and gashes. Once the toilet paper is in place apply another layer of latex to the area to hold it down. Items such as candle wax, cardboard, string and pieces of plastic can also work very well to build texture and create fabulous special effects without costing a cent!

Fake blood can easily be made from home also if you don’t want to purchase it. Simply use red food coloring in conjunction with some corn syrup and cocoa. Adding a little cocoa powder to the mix give the blood a clotting effect as it is drying and makes the blood visibly more realistic.

There are many great online tutorials that can be followed to learn how to apply your zombie makeup effectively and free of charge. Just take a look at this video below to see how the layers are applied to create the special effects.
