Zombie Showdown!

Can you tell the difference between Zombie Madonna and Real Madonna?

Pre-Halloween manipulation of famous faces is all the rage on the Internets. A couple of days ago we toyed with the correlation between age and beauty, and removed all traces of Evian-and-cabbage-soup diets by subjecting some of fashion's slimmest faces to FatBoothification. As far as we know there's no iPhone app for zombification, but Swiss comic-book artist Frederik Peeters' Portraits of Living Deads might just be the next best thing. Some of them are a little too creepy - we're unsure if zombified Amy Winehouse is too soon, and zombified Marilyn Manson is potentially NSFW - though the law gets a little ambiguous where artistic likenesses of the un-dead are concerned. Some of them simply aren't much different to the pop culture icons they're based on (note to Madonna - excessive yoga is not your friend), and some of them proved us wrong (apparently even Kaiser Karl is not immune to the slow but inevitable decomposition that follows a zombie bite).

Of course when you see zombies you immediately think of riots and bloodshed, so here are the battles of the celebrity undead we would be most interested to see the outcome of:

But who knows - maybe Hollywood and the fashion world are right at this moment in the midst of a catastrophic zombie outbreak, and those affected are all just masking their increasingly gruesome fate with Dermablend!

See, close-minded parents of the world? There's hope for your child yet!
