They may not be Bub, but we love them all the same.
I found myself revisiting George Romero’s Day of the Dead earlier today, and I must admit that I wasn’t so much paying attention to the movie as I was the zombies featured throughout. Like most horror fans, I’ve seen the film countless times over the years; and when you’re that familiar with a movie, it’s sometimes fun to go back and look for things you never noticed before.
What did I notice this time? A whole bunch of amusing zombies!
Romero’s third zombie movie featured some of Tom Savini’s all time best makeup effects, and Savini and the team really went all out to make the zombies look way cooler than they did in Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. Of course, featured zombies like Bub and Dr. Tongue are the most famous in Day of the Dead, but it’s not them that we’re here to talk about tonight.
Did you know that there’s a CLOWN ZOMBIE in Day of the Dead?! Prior to tonight, I didn’t either. And I made a fun little video to highlight my favorite of the film’s lesser-known zombies.
