Zombies keep popping up in popular culture; books, movies, tv series.. and now, in movie posters from classic and cult films by Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Rob Reiner and more. If you're not familiar with Matt Busch and his re-imagined movie poster collection, Hollywood Is Dead, you're about to see such lovable characters as Holly GoLightly and E.T. rendered as cataract-wearing, flesh-eating, blood thirsty monsters.

Busch has faithfully recreated the painting style of each original movie poster, as opposed to altering them digitally in Photoshop.
