Publisher's description: The first and only book to chronicle popular culture's greatest and most terrifyingly intriguing monsters in the very medium their bloody, shuffling, brain-hungry characteristics were shaped -- at the movies! The zombie genre has been built by a creative and cultural transfer of influences from generation to generation of storytellers, filmmakers, and artists. This book chronicles the genre's 84 year legacy and its rise to mainstream prominence, collecting the best, most popular, most influential, most overlooked -- and of course, the most gory, bloody, and terrifying -- films featuring zombies. From the first zombie film in 1932 to World War Z, writers and directors have suffused their films with social commentary, humor, and horror. Author Ozzy Inguanzo's insightful, witty, and informative text is complemented by more than two hundred photographs, movie posters, and behind-the-scenes images from of classic films such as White Zombie (1932), I Walked with a Zombie (1943), George Romero's revolutionary Night of the Living Dead, and Lucio Fulci's cult favorite Zombie, as well as more recent offerings from blockbuster directors such as Zack Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead, Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, and the blockbuster series The Walking Dead.
