How Do I Get the Snapchat Zombie Selfie Filter?

To see all the Snapchat Selfie Filters go here.

One of the most popular selfie filters with the new Snapchat update is likely going to be the Zombie filter. With Halloween just around the corner we can expect this filter to get used millions of times over the course of the next few weeks. This is what it looks like:


The filter actually makes a screaming sound when you use it. To get this filter to work you will need to put your Snapchat app in selfie mode. Once you hold your finger on your face for two or three seconds seven filters will pop up. If you don’t have proper lighting these filters will not show up. Make certain the lights are on or you are outside. The zombie filter is the fifth filter available. This is one that will likely only last until Halloween but we will see.

When you click on the filter remember that Snapchat is not recording or taking a picture. You have to click on the camera button to record a video or take the picture. What do you think about this filter? Is it something you will use?

    It doesn’t work well for Androids either. My T-Mobile LG L90 won’t do it either. What a bummer. It looks like so much fun 🙁

    I’ve done everything from changing my lighting to holding it longer, to doing research on why it’s not working, to asking friends, to trying to update it different ways. And it still won’t work!!!! (iPhone. 6)

    Attention everyone!

    To access the new features, go in selfie mode and put your finger on your picture until it “maps” your face.

    The options for the new features will appear and it’ll tell you to open your mouth, raise your eyebrows, etc and it’ll show up 🙂

    So you have to hold down your finger in your face before you take the picture. I have a iPhone 5 and it worked when I did that.

    If you want it to work on galaxy s4:
    1. Clear cache on snapchat
    2. Uninstall it then reinstall it again
    3. Click and hold on your face until it outlines it

    I just downloaded the app on my tablet and it states that the new update (zombie faces and whatnot) are only available on newer android devices.

    Doesn’t work at all on my tablet.

    For this when they add a new one old ones start disappearing. Took me 2 weeks to get the update and every once in awhile one or 2 disappear and 2 new ones show up… unfortunately we can’t control which ones we keep or don’t keep…. some people are still waiting for the update to happen… they didn’t plan this update properly

    It’s not working for my iPhone 4s. My phone is up to date and so is the app. That’s the ONLY reason why I even downloaded the app. Ridiculous!

    Galaxy 3. Works for me, but many of the filters arent available. They all seem pretty basic. Smiley face, aquarium, halo, tongue, red face, rainbow barf, heart eyes, yellow face heart eyes. Nothing else.
