Zombie Movies, the Zombie Fascination Gets Its First Big Boost
By Dale Roethlisberger

Yes, there was literature about zombies or zombie like creatures before movies. But, the movies brought horror and particularly zombies to a worldwide audience.  For close to a hundred years now, including silent films, the undead in one form or another and the more well-known “zombie” genre has taken hold in many a film affictionado’s mind. The Wikipedia entry for zombie movies credits “White Zombie” from 1932 as being the first full length feature film in the genre. A quick view of the Wikipedia entry delineates a list of dozens of films identified with zombies. Here are some zombie choices for you:

I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and was graduating high school in 1968, the year when a big boost to the zombie genre occured. Locally, George Romero produced and directed “Night of the Living Dead” and zombie movies gained cult-like status. Consider viewing or adding this film to your zombie passion list.
