The 10 bloodstained lady zombies were there to promote Zombie Women of Satan, a horror movie written, directed by and starring Warren Speed, of Newcastle, who showed the movie twice at the high-profile event.
Shot last year in and around Newcastle and Gateshead, the film follows a mad scientist who runs a cult in a country house, where he turns a group of kidnapped women into zombies through a series of experiments.
Dad-of-two Warren, 41, of Kingston Park, a male burlesque dancer who also organises the Newcastle Gateshead Comedy Festival, amassed friends with involvement in make-up, special effects and filming to help produce the film on a micro budget.
Last year’s zombie hit Colin made headlines after it was shown at Cannes, having been made on a budget of just £45.
