Zombies in the Garden

ZOMBIES!They came. They saw. They conquered! And lucky for us, everyone still has their brains in place.

Couldn’t make it to the Garden this weekend to watch Ray Villafane transform two of the world’s heaviest pumpkins (including the world record-holder) into a super-creepy zombie tableau? Never fear!

We caught all the action via time-lapse camera and in a slideshow. Head below the jump to see them … if you dare!

Time-lapse of Ray Villafane carving two of the world’s largest pumpkins, October 22-23, 2011.

And a slideshow of images taken on Sunday, October 23 by Garden photographer Ivo M. Vermeulen.

Ray Villafane used the pale flesh of Brant and Eleanor Bordsen's 1,693 pound pumpkin for the zombies.
