About


Now in it’s 9th year, the NYC Zombie Crawl is an organization concerned primarily with the rejuvenation of the living dead. While this can be problematic in civilized society, NYC Zombie Crawl attempts to make the zombie experience as genuine as possible through the combination of horrifying SFX make-up and organized zombie events that unite brain-eaters from near and far.

Under the direction of experienced zombie ringleader Doug Sakmann, NYC Zombie Crawl has provided make-up for movie, book and video game releases, national touring acts, film productions, and countless organized events in the NY area including massive zombie crawls through the wild streets of NYC. Sakmann’s team has worked extensively in the business of transforming average humans into the living dead, having provided Zombie make-up and hosted events for such clients as the Walking Dead/AMC, the NY Mets, Tribeca Film Festival, NYC Comic Con, Sony Pictures, NY Lotto and The Today Show on NBC, to name a few.

Some of the unique events we have coordinated zombies for include Zombie Amusement Parks, Zombie Baseball Games, Zombie Raves, Zombie Weddings, Zombie Nightclubs and more!
