Watch 100 Years of Zombies in Pop Culture in Under Three Minutes


You've probably already seen 100 years of men's hair trends and 100 years of wedding dresses, but the latest take on how style has evolved in the past century is definitely more gore than glamour. In the YouTube video above, created by Xbox, makeup artists recreate the classic looks of zombies from films, video games, and television—starting with Bela Lugosi's White Zombie from 1932 and ending with a look from the upcoming zombie survival game, Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition.

Each new zombie style is paired with information about the character design and characteristics of the undead threats. From drinking special potions to "turn" to being particularly adept at running, the changes over the years are more than just an upgrade in makeup effects. Xbox doesn't list all of the movies or shows that inspired the makeovers shown in the video, but the timeline, appearance, and qualities give the walkers and biters away. See if you can identify each of the zombies in the video above.
