  • Posted by ZombieArmy in DIY, Season 8 on October 4th, 2017

In this Do It Yourself tutorial, the Zombie Army’s Johanna and Anthony teach you step-by-step how to make a HellsGate-style zombie – a dustier, older, moldier rotter than your average undead shambler.


Days of the Living Dead #DOTLD Season 2017, Episode 3: Housebound: Building HellsGate

  • Posted by ZombieArmy in Season 8 on September 26th, 2017

“The problem with big, ambitious designs is that they cost a LOT of money…”

When it comes to building a quality haunted attraction, the only thing scarier than John’s imagination may be the Zombie Army’s limited time, money and resources. But hey, that’s never stopped them before. Watch as Kyle and the crew figure out how to turn high concept into creepy reality, beware of the ZomBEE Army and sing along with Johanna: “Bricks and bricks and bricks and bricks”!


Days of the Living Dead #DOTLD Season 2017, Episode 2: Anatomy of the Scare – Making a Big Room Scary

Watch as the team walks you through all the considerations at play – physical, psychological and emotional. The Zombie Army REALLY wants to SCARE you!


Days of the Living Dead #DOTLD Season 2017, Episode 1: HellsGate Rising

  • Posted by ZombieArmy in Season 8 on September 12th, 2017

In 2015, Zombie Army Productions built a brand new haunted house in Chicago… and then didn’t get to open it.

In 2016, after another year of building and more setbacks than anybody could’ve guessed (affectionately referred to as The Death March), HellsGate opened to unprecedented crowds, receiving wildly enthusiastic responses from critics and customers alike.

In 2017, now with HellsGate firmly established, the Army has turned its attention to finessing and augmenting HellsGate Haunted House. Watch as John and the crew give you a sneak peak at some of the new thrills, chills and terrors awaiting you in the woods of Lockport…
