'The Walkers Among Us' documentary about Walking Dead Fanbase a Hit at Red Carpet Premiere
The documentary "The Walkers Among Us" details the fan base community that has formed around AMC's hit television series "The Walking Dead."
Filmmakers Cris Macht and Ian Vacek attended, along with the author of 'The Walking Dead' novels, Jay Bonansinga. "The Walking Dead" zombie Michelle Helmeczy was there too, alive and kicking.
Red carpet a zombie fashion statement
Judging by the crowd that attended the premiere, it was clear that zombies are here to stay. Cris, Ian and Jay were welcomed like the stars - the red carpet was a wild mixture of fake blood, zombies lurching and fans craning their necks for a better look at the interviews.
Proceeds from the "The Walkers Among Us" went to the Walking Hope, a charity supporting the American Cancer Society.
Zombies in the making
Reel-life attendees included David Schoelen, founder of ReelGuise, a cosplay company that “Brings the Dead to Life” and a cast of gruesome live zombies from Nightmare of Chicago Street – together they roamed the red carpet event bringing smiles and looks of distress. Premiere guests were transformed into the undead thanks to makeup artists.
"The Walkers Among Us" had its official red carpet premiere at noon on Saturday, April 25, at the Hollywood Blvd. Theatre, Woodridge IL.
