A big thanks to Ash Hamilton at Horror-Fix for putting this item on my radar.
The folks at Top Trending (in conjunction with the video game Dying Light: The Following) have put together an amazing time-lapse video that takes viewers on a tour of cinematic zombies from the past century. It features a single actor and a crew of extremely talented makeup and FX artists. Consider this a history lesson for horror freaks!
The video kicks off with a representation of a voodoo afflicted walker, first seen in White Zombie back in 1932. From there, we see the actor transform into a Night of the Living Dead era zombie; other incarnations include rabid and diseased zombies. The video concludes with a representation of “Dying Light Volatiles”, and it’s the very first time the Volatile has been portrayed in real-life by an actor.
Get ready for a mind-blowing experience!
