Blood and more blood. Hundreds of people dressed as zombies came together in Sitges at the Eastpak Zombie Walk organized by the 41st edition of the International Film Festival of Catalonia. Severed heads, knives driven into their bodies, wounds of all sorts, skin hanging off and eyes popping out of their skulls. It could never have been said better, Sitges became a genuine cat walk for the walking dead, all grunting growling, howling and complaining.
This concentration of the living dead was to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the mythic film Night of the Living Dead, by George A. Romero. The North American director cancelled the visit he had planned to Sitges due to shooting complications on his new movie. Despite Romero's absence, there was other representation for this classic genre film. Hill Hinzman, the first zombie in history appearing in Romero's movie, walked the streets of Sitges impeccably made up, with blackened teeth, a gray face and a black suit that, although it looked new from close up, if you examined it closely you could find spider webs, rips and split seams.
After this concentration at the Festival's Brigadoon Zone (Miramar building), the march of the moved down to the Passeig de la Ribera esplanade, where the bands Motorxombis, Eyaculación Post Mortem, Dulcamara, Secret Army, Los Brioles and Los Tiki Phantoms performed.
