As part of the Spooky Empire “Ultimate Horror Weekend” 2009, hundreds of zombies and other ghoulish creatures walked up and down International Drive on October 9. The zombie walk and opening ceremonies were put on by the Deadite Empire.
Special guests at the event included John Landis, director of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video, and original Night of the Living Dead zombie Bill Hinzman leading the hoard.
Here’s a look at this year’s Spooky Empire zombie walk from makeup to completion:
