Unlike other shows who sneakily add special effects without you realizing, The Walking Dead is so overtly gruesome and bloody and gore-y that we're completely aware that what we see is being spiced up with visual effects. Still, it's awesome to see how the effects are added. Stargate Studios shows off the reel of effects it worked on for this past season 3 of The Walking Dead. Spoiler alerts, obv.

Am I alone in thinking the make up work of The Walking Dead is nearly as impressive as the special effects work? These zombies look so good they give me nightmares (to be fair, the show's pace gives me nightmares too). Add special effects and chopping heads to create gore never looked so good. [Stargate Studios]
