  • The Zombie Film is the most comprehensive examination of the zombie film genre to date. With a detailed filmography of over 400 movies stretching back to the genre’s earliest days, it begins with such classics as White Zombie (1932).

    The book then moves through the hybrid science fiction zombie films of the 1950s including Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), and then slashes through bloody Euro filmmakers like Lucio Fulci and Amando de Ossorio.

    The book details the revisionist work of director-writer George Romero, and the zombie film s blossoming in the new millennium with mainstream works like 28 Days Later (2002), the comic Shaun of the Dead (2004), the popular TV series The Walking Dead (2010-), and the summer blockbuster World War Z (2013).

    The Zombie Film features over 500 illustrations and entertaining sidebars on such subjects as zombie literature, zombie myth and history, zombie comics, and literary sources, such as H. P. Lovecraft and Richard Matheson.
