Zombies invade Brussels

Up to 800 people kitted out as Zombies took part in yesterday's 'Zombifff Parade' staged as part of the Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Film, the BIFFF.

Encouraged by a couple of DJs and their music the Zombies headed off from the Paleizenplein at 4pm and made for the Muntplein. A float decorated with headstones led the parade. The Zombies performed dances reminiscent of Michael Jackson's Thriller clip.

The parade could count on considerable interest from by-standers, who burst out laughing when the Zombies managed to scare the living daylights out of an unsuspecting passer-by. The BIFFF runs in the Bozar until 13 April.
