Michonne's pulling no punches in a new clip from the return of Season 8 of AMC's The Walking Dead. As she tries to close a gate on an advancing group of Walkers, she inadvertently tears the face off the lead one in a sequence that is not for the fainthearted. For those of you who love the show or are just casual shoppers of the zombie genre, however, it's actually pretty cool and a neat bit of practical makeup trickery. She then goes on to stab a bunch in their faces with her trademark katana.  

Check out the undead gore below, and if you get queasy easily, make sure to have a barf bag ready to go:

The dreadlocked Michonne is played by Danai Gurira, who is currently making waves with her performace as Dora Milaje leader Okoye in Marvel's Black Panther. As for Gurira's status in The Walking Dead, we last saw her crying with Rick after finding out Carl had been bitten. 

The second half of The Walking Dead's eighth season returns Sunday, February 25, at 9/8c with the extended episode "Honor."
