Award winning horror studio recreated legendary Tarman from Return of the Living Dead
UK based horror photography studio HORRIFY ME has brought one of the most iconic zombies of all time back from the dead: TARMAN, from Return of the Living Dead. Buckets of black toxic slime were put to very creative use in this extremely messy photoshoot. Model Lee Frost endured hours of disgusting makeup and sticky black glop, and was left unable to see thanks to plastic eyeballs glued to his face. Cold, wet oily rags were tied all over his body, and then he was dumped into a very gross toxic barrel.
Artist and photographer Rick Jones of Horrify Me is renowned for making other people suffer for his art. Having already impaled a girl on a wooden stick (Cannibal Holocaust), subjected a model to hours of pins in her head (Hellraiser) and wrapping someone in old, filthy wrappings (the Mummy), this is just the latest in his series of shoots designed to express his passion for classic horror.
Tarman is a particular favourite at Horrify Me and the opportunity to recreate him was priceless.
