I'm DP'ng a student film and there is a scene where the police officer investigating inside a dark house, he's in a hallway and he shines a flashlight, the beam shines through the rib cage of a zombie so you can see the rib cage and through that also the cop w/flashlight. What I want to know is, what can I do to achieve this? Should I rig something or make him get a high intensity flashlight?

A good flashlight to use would be a Xenon flashlight. Extremely bright, make a good beam and they're daylight balanced so it really pops when captured on film.
