Day of the Dead - Pvt. Torrez and Rickles get Eaten

--That's gotta hurt

As many zombie fans know, the death of Capt. Rhodes in the original Day of the Dead is the greatest "death by Zombie" in the history of cinema. But there were many other great death scenes from Day of the Dead that have been overshadowed and deserve some recognition....

Although Day of the Dead had fewer zombie kills than Dawn of the Dead, the scenes of gore are much more intense and convincing. Which brings us to the deaths of Pvt. Torrez(Taso N. Stavrakis) and Pvt. Rickles(Ralph Marrero), two of the most brutal Zombie "feasting" scenes ever and two of Tom Savini's greatest moments....

In this scene, the Zombies descend into the underground facility and wreck havoc on the remaining soldiers. Our first victim is Pvt. Torrez, who is literally ripped apart by the zombies, head first! Shortly after, our second victim, Pvt. Rickles is attacked and eaten as a Zombie rips off some of his face. Play close attention to the gruesome detail that Savini gives us. Some of the effects are so well done, it makes you wonder how he did that.
