Legions of the bloodied undead lurched their way through Great Yarmouth, prompting puzzled looks from holidaymakers.
But the zombie invasion of the seaside resort posed no threat to people.
For it was carefully co-ordinated by former Caister barman Carl Harrison, aiming to raise cash and awareness for a serious cause.
Mr Harrison, 37, of Webster Way, explained the second annual zombie walk was in support of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation charity, established after the 2007 murder of Sophie Lancaster.
The 20-year-old goth was violently attacked while with her partner Rob in Bacup, Lancashire - targeted for their unique way of dressing.

And the charity that takes her name aims to create respect and understanding of subcultures in our communities.
'We aim to make it bigger and better every year,' said Mr Harrison. 'It was so stressful last year and nobody helped until the last minute, so I wasn't going to do it again.

'But people were begging us to do it again.'
This year the zombie walk doubled in size, taking in a skeleton horse, performances of Michael Jackson's Thriller by Dragon Stage Theatre School and the stilted Thundermental entertainers.
The zombie masses got in character with the help of Jackson's Marvellous Make-Up, which took donations for charity.
And the hordes groaned their way from St George's Park, along the seafront and back up Regent Road to Market Place.
A zombie ball will take place tonight at Evolution nightclub in King Street.
