Directed by Zack Snyder, Netflix’s Army Of The Dead is a glorious combination of genres and styles, combining zombie horror, heist, and salvage stories into an action-packed whole. Inspired by the Las Vegas-set film, and the references to lowrider culture sprinkled in throughout, Netflix has partnered with legendary designer Mister Cartoon and famed car customizer West Coast Customs to create a custom designed lowrider (a 1983 Monte Carlo, to be precise), specialty-wrapped with artwork that captures the film’s essence.
In his design, Mister Cartoon leaned into the classic Laugh Now, Cry Later motif by creating a yin-yang concept for the lowrider: one half of the car depicts the glitz, glamor, and high-rolling nature of Las Vegas, and the other depicts the zombie threat and grisly fate that awaits the film’s ensemble cast (led by Dave Bautista) if their gambit fails.
