Windsor Zombie Walk dragged itself through the streets of the town for the second year on Saturday night.
An estimated horde of about 300 people went through a zombie makeover, tripling the number who took part in last year’s inaugural event.
Organiser Steve Nash was confident the walk had been a groaning success and said: "I think it seems that more and more people really like the zombie culture, and in particular shows like the Walking Dead and big stars like Brad Pitt appearing in movies like World War Z are making it more mainstream.
"People also just seem to like dressing up and having fun and getting the chance to go through Windsor and seeing people peering through the restaurant windows was really amazing.
"It was a great evening for families too and, apart from a bit of make-up, it didn't really need to cost them anything either."
After the event had shuffled its way back down from the castle to its start point at the Firestation Centre for Arts and Culture, in St Leonards Road, there was also a free viewing of cult classic Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse and a zombie-themed after-party.
Mr Nash added that the event's success meant it would be back again next year and hinted at the possibility of more undead-related activities to add to the calendar.
A newly married couple were given wedding photos to remember when the undead crashed the photoshoot outside of Windsor Castle. Click here to read the full story.
