JIM KRUT - "Helicopter Zombie" and more!

JIM KRUT is often known as the Helicopter Zombie (tm)*. In one of the most memorable scenes from the 1978 George A. Romero horror classic film "Dawn of the Dead," his zombie character steps under a whirling helicopter blade and loses the top of his head to cinematic history!

  Other films featuring Jim Krut include "Deadlands 2: Trapped," "Flesh of the Living," "Zombiegirl Diary," "Cut You Right Here," and the still-in-production films  "It's Happening Again" and  "Night of the Living Dead: Genesis."
