Zombie Dolls

 In a suburban neighborhood where friendly blow-up ghosts and happy jack-o-lanterns signify the arrival of Halloween, one house stands out. A teenage girl, tired of her Barbies, Disney Princesses and Monster Highschoolers has transformed them into a zombie army. They march stiffly across the lawn, all with glowing yellow eyes and a deadly pallor. Their faces and clothing are stained with blood. Four Horsewomen of the Zombie Apocalypse ride behind. Neighbors with young children may look askance at this tableau but I salute maker’s the creativity and dark humor.
