Zombie films are rarely cinematic masterpieces, but they can be a lot of fun, with a few having meaning beyond blood and brains.  Zombies have changed over the years. In early films, starting with 1932’s White Zombie, they were connected to voodoo or mesmerism.  They did not have to be dead, and never ate the living. That changed in 1968 with George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Since then, the zombies have been mindless rotting corpses that hunger for the flesh of the living. The standard zombie film plot has a group of mismatched survivors, fortified in a building, fighting the ever growing horde that wants to eat their brains and spread the “disease.” They are generally apocalyptic and seldom see the future of mankind as bright.
