One of the highlights of the 7th Festival of Serbian Fantasy Film in Belgrade was the first Serbian Zombie Walk.
It took place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, 20th October 2012.
The team of about 20 zombie-makers was supervised by the living legend of Serbian make-up effects, Miroslav Lakobrija (T.T. SYNDROME, SRPSKI FILM, ...PORN GANG, ZONA MRTVIH etc) - pictured below:
Dylan Dog, famous English (Italian) investigator of the occult & occasional zombie killer, was also in Belgrade.
The festival's special guest was the Italian EFX maestro, Sergio Stivaletti, responsible for the zombies in DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE and for gore & visual effects in almost everything Argento's done since PHENOMENA.
Stivaletti was head of the jury which awarded the best zombie make-up.
Here's the winner! The one on the left, that is.
I was there, too – but without make-up. I didn't need it.
The walk was accompanied by a cheerful atmosphere of carnival – nothing strange for Serbs, who are used to sing & dance & make fools of themselves in face of adversity and apocalypse.
Here's a video with some of the moments from the Belgrade Zombie walk.
Plus, some more pics to give you the idea of the event. Enjoy.
