Purple Revolver are making an open call for horror fans to join their horde of zombies for a special flash mob this Friday (30th) for Hallowe’en and to raise money for Alder Hey Childrens’ Hospital.

Anyone wishing to take part will have their zombie make up created by a team of professionals and be able to watch a special Purple Revolver presentation with Hollywood SFX guru Shaune Harrison.

Wirral-born special effects legend Shaune Harrison will hold in a panel discussion at 92 Degrees Coffee Shop on Hardman Street and discuss his work on Hollywood blockbusters and upcoming projects for Bay TV show Heroes For Sale.

Shaune has worked on Harry Potter’s Lord Voldemort, Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger as well as numerous characters in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.

Horror fans will also recognise his work in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, World War Z, The Mummy and The Fifth Element.

You can join the flesh eating fanatics by buying a ticket for £5, which includes your zombie make up and the panel discussion with Shaune Harrison – with proceeds going to Alder Hey.

Zombies will also feature in a short trailer being shot to promote a Liverpool based zombie apocalypse movie.

Places on the flash mob are limited, so people are being encouraged to buy tickets in advance via Skiddle:
