This nine minute-long video - for Metallica's All Nightmare Long by Robert Schober - aka Roboshobo - features "lost" news footage about a mysterious spore discovered in Russia that can revivify dead flesh - and eventually used is eventually used in a Soviet-American war.

And that means zombies! It's far-fetched, engrossing, beautifully made in a variety of styles, from the newsreels to animation inspired by the Fleischer studios' Superman cartoons: Roboshobo worked with Bluefish FX for eight weeks to create much of it.

A major achievement, and some of the news footage was leaked before the video's release as genuine in order to build an online buzz - and as a result lots of teenage boys now think there really was a zombie invasion in the Fifties...
