Mena Suvari, moviemaker Peter Jackson and rocker Joel Madden are among the stars who have been given a zombie makeover to promote a U.S. blood donation drive.

The Black Keys, actress Elisabeth Rohm and TV stars Whitney Port and Maria Menounos were also transformed into members of the undead for the campaign in aid of the American Red Cross.

Bosses of hit AMC show The Walking Dead teamed up with the organisation to create the creepy shoot, which aims to raise awareness of the need for blood donations in America.

All of the stars were given their makeovers by the programme's special effects make-up guru Greg Nicotero.
