Before we had the rotting corpses of The Walking Dead, we had an old guy shambling through a cemetery in Night of the Living Dead. The Night of the Living Dead Cemetery Zombie Bust perfectly captures the likeness of the very first zombie we saw in George A. Romero’s classic hit as Captain Dweeb (I’m sure he was cool in 1968) speaks the now-classic line, “They’re coming to get you, Barbra.”
The 1:1 scale bust, sculpted in the US, is part of a limited edition consisting of only 100 pieces, and it’s been authorized and approved by Bill Hinzman, the man who portrayed the zombie, as well as appearing in countless other horror films.

Holy Jesus! Another hit out of the ballpark for GeekAlerts.com! But you know, the one bust that I have always held dear to my heart is the bust of August Caesar in the movie “The Omega Man”, starring Charlton Heston. The one they used in the movie was destroyed during the final fight scene between Dr. Neville and Matthias and his group of half-dead zombified plague survivors. I’ve scoured the Web, have never found an exact replica. SOmething for GeekAlerts to think about, perhaps? John V. Karavitis
