What is a Zombie?
A zombie is an animated corpse brought back to life by mystical methods, such as witchcraft. Since the late 19th century, the undead have acquired notable popularity, especially in North American and Europe. In modern times, Zombies have been used to describe undead being in horror fiction, largely drawn from George A. Romero’s film Night of the Living Dead. They have appeared in various books, films, video games and in television shows.
The figure of the zombie has appeared several times in fantasy themed fiction and entertainment, like The Magic Island by William Seabrook. Time claimed that the book “introduced ‘zombi’ into U.S. speech”. Victor Halperin directed White Zombie, a horror film, capitalizing on the same voodoo zombie themes as Seabrook’s book of three years prior, is often regarded as the first legitimate zombie film ever made, and introduced the word “zombie” to the wider world. Other zombie-themed films include Val Lewton’s I Walked With a Zombie and Wes Craven’s The Serpent and the Rainbow, a heavily fictionalized account of Wade Davis’ book.
