In the past 10 years, humanity has cowered before an endless horde of zombies. Since “28 Days Later”, 2004’s “Dawn of the Dead”, “Land of the Dead” and Max Brooks’ books, zombies have become the most popular monster of the 21st century.
As a horror fan, when I hear that something has “zombies,” I want to know: are they fast zombies or slow zombies? Viral zombies, supernatural zombies or alien-invasion zombies? Headshot zombies, living zombies or writhing-severed-limbs zombies? Crazed, unreasonable people who are alive but act ‘zombie-like’? Voodoo zombies, cannibal zombies or rotting Etruscan curse zombies?
