Stunt roll across hood of the car. So hard the stunt performer cracked the windshield. That’s real blood on his skull.

Rumor has it they will “@yvrshoots: Local #ZombieWalk this Saturday. Hope a herd from CW’s #iZombie – filming in Vancouver – joins the fun.” — iZombie Writers Room (@iZombieWriters) September 3, 2014 Was there a zombie herd from CW series iZombie at Vancouver Zombiewalk today?

Organizers pushed back this year’s walk to September from August to try to reduce the photographer to zombie ratio. Not sure that worked but the walk did not disrupt Robson traffic like it has in years past. Exposed Braaaaiiiins. Mini Steampunk Zombie. And his backpack. Steampunk Zombies. Interactive. Vancouver Grizzlies Cheerleader Zombies. Did anyone spot Rose McIver or David Anders among the [...]
