It's a scene coming straight from a horror movie - a large group of slowly shuffling zombies terrorizing the streets. Here in Tokyo, about 1,000 zombies are doing just that - devouring anything that gets in their way during their march towards Tokyo Tower. Not even the landmark's pinks mascots are safe. But it's all part of the fun according to zombie, Katsuya Mageshi. SOUNDBITE: 19-year-old, Katsuya Mageshi, saying (Japanese) "Being able to completely become a zombie here at Tokyo Tower, it's great. I did my makeup myself." Unlike hands on Mageshi, most zombies got professional help from the students of the Yamano beauty college - who used their artistic talents to create convincing "undead" looks. Their models then took to the streets of Tokyo to celebrate Halloween with the living.
