Fangoria just learned that makeup FX artist Christien Tinsley is creating the undead creatures that pursue Will Smith and co. through "I Am Legend", the megabudget film version of Richard Matheson's classic vampire-apocalypse novel currently shooting in New York City.

Prior to creating "I Am Legend"'s bloodthirsty "hemosites," as they're called in this adaptation, Tinsley built the Bigfoot for Ryan Schifin's Abominable, bloodied Jim Caviezel for "The Passion of the Christ" and did FX work on William Friedkin's upcoming thriller "Bug".

"I Am Legend" is targeting a November 21, 2007 release by Warner Bros.
