FIRST ZOMBIE TO EAT BRAINS

With a successful career spanning more than three decades, William Stout has worked on some of the coolest projects in film, television, publishing and more. Most notably to us he was the Production Designer of the Return of the Living Dead (1984), and also recently did creature design for Pan’s Labyrinth (2006). Below is his original print of Tarman from Return. Love!

In case you didn’t know, Tarman was the first ever zombie to eat brains on screen. To check out the rest of Stout’s stuff click HERE.

  1. NOTE: According to our interview conducted with Return of the Living Dead’s writer/director Danny O’Bannon, Tarman was also the first zombie to say “Brains” ever on screen. There has been some controversy about whether this is correct, as a zombie earlier in the movie seems to say something close to “brains”, but we are going by what O’Bannon’s intention was, and what he said.
