The Walking Dead's Top 8 Scariest Zombies

4. Well Walker

Probably the most disgusting zombie on the show, the walker in the well is all fat and bloated from being in the water for God knows how long. The team decides not to shoot it because that would contaminate the water in the well. Let's face it: The guy probably already contaminated it, but they send Glenn down into the well to basically lasso the thing so they can bring it up. Despite a few glitches in their system, Glenn manages to pull it off, and off they go to remove the fatty from the well. What they didn't anticipate was how fragile the walker's skin would be from its days in the water, and it basically explodes in half, ruining any chance of water from the well. Next time they will learn to just shoot it and move on.

5. RV Walker

If you bought the Season 2 Limited Edition Blu-ray set, then you own a copy of this guy's head and you get to actively stab him in the eye with a screwdriver. Sounds like fun, right? It is, but doubtfully so for Andrea, who is stuck in the RV bathroom, hiding from the real guy. When she fails to put her gun together in time, Andrea has to resort to using a screwdriver passed down to her by Dale through the RV roof. It is a close one, but Andrea ultimately wins out by repeatedly stabbing him in the eye.

It truly is amazing how far make-up effects have come. I tried and failed to watch Land of the Dead for the second time not long ago. One of the reasons I couldn't finish it (among many) is because the make-ups look almost laughable in comparison to the work on TWD. At the time I thought the work that KNB had done on Land looked fantastic. Now that they've reached the pinnacle of realism in regards to decaying flesh, it's so hard to look back.

That swamp walker was fucking horrifying.
