Item Details

Zombie Holocaust is an illustrated history of one of our strangest and most pervasive fictional archetypes: the shambling, stalking living dead. From the mentally enslaved Haitian cane field workers described in early twentieth century travelogues to the mindlessly violent, cannibalistic mobs of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead and that film's sequels, the zombie has undergone an eye-popping metamorphosis. With wry humour and unflinching attention to detail, this unique volume describes the transformation of the mythic zombie into a popular archetype and examines the cultural basis of its strange endurance.
