However, pulling off the blood-soaked scenes involves a whole of of special effects makeup and CGI, a process that the show's social media accounts have offered some insights into with an array of pictures.

Given that we're years into the virus outbreak in the show's timeline it's no surprise many of the walkers have almost entirely decomposed.

Usually they are disposed of with a quick bullet or a knife to the head, as taking out the brain is the only way to put a walker down for good.

However, over the years the group have managed to find all manner of inventive ways to take down the dead on a large scale.



Most recently, Carol (Melissa McBride) managed to take out The Whisperers' entire horde by marching them off the edge of a cliff.

Among the array of behind-the-scenes pics, one shot sees Daryl Dixon actor Norman Reedus posing with the model of a walker that has had its head crushed.

Another showed's production stock of severed hands, of both the human and walker variety.


A third snap sees and extra having a full-body walker suit fitted, complete with exppsed ribs and rotting breasts.

Other shots reveal that green screen material is sometimes mounted inside walker masks to ensure seamless CGI animation of their snapping jaws.

In one throwback picture we also see the extensicve amount of people involved in rendering Rick Grimes' (Andrew Lincoln) nightmare sequence where he finds himself surrounded by the bodies of his friends.
