The first season of AMC’s hit zombie show The Walking Dead is coming out on DVD on October 4, 2011, but you don’t have to wait until then to check out one of the bonus features. Anchor Bay Entertainment’s just released the DVD extra clip “KNB and The Art of Making Zombies” which provides viewers a behind-the-scenes look at just how the special effects company creates zombies (and blood, guts, and gore).
The first season will be available in three versions (Special Edition DVD, Special Edition Blu-ray and Limited Edition Blu-ray Collector’s Tin), each containing all the episodes from the inaugural season as well as a “fan-requested” black and white version of The Walking Dead‘s pilot episode. The Limited Edition Blu-ray also comes with a wearable zombie mask (just in time for Halloween) designed by the series’ make-up artist, Greg Nicotero. Take a look at the making of a zombie bonus feature, but be warned – it contains graphic zombie nudity and gore:
