MSNBC: I Turned Into A Zombie!



This is one of my favorite pieces I've done. When I was a weekly correspondent on MSNBC's "At the Movies," I had a chance to visit Oscar-winning F/X studio KNB ("The Chronicles of Narnia," "Kill Bill," "Army of Darkness" - the list goes on!) and be made up as a zombie! I spoke to director George A. Romero and the cast of "Land of the Dead" as well. You can watch it all below. This aired on June 25, 2005.
