Zombie celebrities – the other side of famous faces


Everybody knows that celebrities are overpaid and over-rated, so that’s no wonder that when the

zombification “virus” spread all over the world, they were the first to suffer transformations – being at the mercy of some amazing artists imagination. This trend of zombifying celebrities has become very popular, and continues to be appreciated, due to its macabre feeling, because it emphasizes very famous faces in a new mask, showing us what they would look as the undead.
Probably many of you remember the shock when Michael Jackson released his “Thriller” video on December, 1983 and it had influenced people’s culture ever since.

This is it!

In the same way, Rob Zombie has been a zombie addict, intentionally zombifying himself and showing up as undead for the public. Although the resulted images are grotesque, they are also very humorous and that is actually the whole point. They are not only grossing out, but poking fun at pop culture and not only.
Turning celebrities into scary monsters and rotting zombies represents also a little crash in their public image, which they are trying so hard to keep it immaculate.

    Moses was no Jew. He was Hebrew — 2:18 And the LORD God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.’

  15. Well, I have been reading your blog posts daily and the reason I come on your blog frequently is its compelling content

  16. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.
