Doing the zombie shuffle . . . in Melbourne

October 31 might be Halloween, but it’s in November when the zombies descend upon Melbourne.

Video report by Ronelle Richards Daniel Horsley

The annual zombie shuffle celebrated its 10th year, with the “undead” turning up in their droves. More than 1000 zombies of all persuasions and personas congregated — from jilted brides, possessed cheerleaders and Darth Vader, to Frozen Zombies Anna and Elsa. Even Santa Claus was wishing Melburnians an early Merry Brainsmas.

Ronelle Richards and Daniel Horsley captured the action for The Citizen.
