You might coax a zipper effect out of Card Dance [link] or Displacement Map [link]

Here's a CS6 AEP that includes one comp for each of the three Zipper effects I've included. The comp that's closest to what you want is the one named, ZipperFX03 - Final Comp.

This comp includes a Controller Layer where the effect is controlled from. All you really need to do, to animate the relevant properties should be done here.

Once you're comfortable with the mechanics, I'm hopeful that you'll try recreating the effect on your own.
