Family of the Living Dead

This Halloween, one Ottawa family is going ghoulish. At first, it was just fun. Now that they’re turning into zombies for the seventh year in a row, it’s a part of their identity. We witnessed their transformation.

The Carleton team visited the Davies-Ostrum family in their Ottawa home.

Rowan used to be scared of zombies. Now, she loves becoming one.

Becoming zombies is more than just a fun activity for the family – it’s how they bond.

Megan Davies-Ostrum turns her daughter, Rowan, into a zombie with theatrical makeup tricks she learned online.

Now in their seventh year of zombie-ification, it has become a part of their identity: some even call them the Zombie Family.
