TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This just in: Donald Trump and Scarlett Johansson are dead – well, at least on paper.

Rob Sacchetto is a professional zombie portrait painter, who, for $80 a pop, can turn anyone’s pretty mug into that of a brain-eating zombie.

He just colored celebrities dead for his new book, Zombiewood: The Celebrity Dead Exposed (Ulysses Press), and admits he had a field day turning perfect stars like Scarlett Johansson and the Jonas Brothers into zombies because the cuter the face, the creepier the transformation.

He likes the idea of “ravaging” their fake Hollywood veneers with oozing blood, boils, maggots, and rotting flesh.

But his favorite star to massacre was Donald Trump, who some may argue is already soulless.

Sacchetto says The Donald’s face really “lent itself to zombification” but scary stars like Gary Busey, Amy Winehouse, and Courtney Love were surprisingly difficult to zombify because they already look so wrecked, he wasn’t sure where to begin making his mark.
