Meet Bob. Bob is a severed zombie head. In Collapse, the upcoming zombie apocalypse movie now filming in Iowa, main character Robert (Chris Mulkey of Saving Grace, Cloverfield, North Country, Radio) carries our little buddy “Bob” around with him. Find out more about Bob, and see six more images of the zombies of of Collapse, after the break.
Production intern Ronnie M. Williams has this to say on the origins of Bob:
At one point in the film Robert, the lead character, finds the zombie head a sink. Robert attempts to drown the head by filling the sink with water, but it floats and bobs on the surface. He tries to hold it under the water, but since it doesn’t breathe, it has no effect. Robert decides to take the zombie head with him instead of shooting it. He shoves a sock in its mouth and stuffs it in a bag for easier handling.
Seems like a good plan, especially since there’s been a severe lack of severed-head zombies on the silver screen since ReAnimator. And I have to say, all these zombies look pretty damn good. They’re the work of Toby Sells, the make-up and special effects artist for Collapse, who’s also worked on eight other zombie films including Zombieland. Nice work, Mr. Sells!
