The first and only book to chronicle popular culture's greatest and most terrifyingly intriguing monsters in the very medium their bloody, shuffling, brain-hungry characteristics were shaped-at the movies! The zombie genre has been built by a creative and cultural transfer of influences from generation to generation of storytellers, filmmakers, and artists. This book chronicles the genre's 84 year legacy and its rise to mainstream prominence, collecting the best, most popular, most influential, most overlooked-and of course, the most gory, bloody, and terrifying-films featuring zombies. From the first zombie film in 1932 to World War Z, writers and directors have suffused their films with social commentary, humour, and horror. Author Ozzy Inguanzo's insightful, witty, and informative text is complemented by more than two hundred photographs, movie posters, and behind-the-scenes images from of classic films such as White Zombie (1932), I Walked with a Zombie (1943), George Romero's revolutionary Night of the Living Dead, and Lucio Fulci's cult favorite Zombie, as well as more recent offerings from blockbuster directors such as Zack Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead, Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, and the blockbuster series The Walking Dead. Expertly curated and filled with images spanning the breadth of cinematic history, Zombies on Film is perfect for film fans, students, and pop culture junkies.

Reviews

""The ultimate chronicle of cinema's most terrifying zombie classics, packed with long-forgotten gems, and the exhilarating story of how filmmakers collectively spawned a genre that never dies."" - Sam Raimi "The ultimate chronicle of cinema's most terrifying zombie classics, packed with long-forgotten gems, and the exhilarating story of how filmmakers collectively spawned a genre that never dies." -Sam Raimi "Author Ozzy Inguanzo has compiled a very impressive look at zombies in the movies, and the result is an excellent guide even the heartiest of dead-fans will want to own. I've reviewed many zombie film companions over the years, but this is by far one of the best. Chocked full of pictures, you will be hard-pressed to find a more revealing book than this one. Zombies on Film is at times witty, however it is always informative...the snapshots are the best part of this book. Some are simple shots of the movie posters used to promote the films, while others are huge HD images taken straight from the movies themselves. This alone is a good enough reason to buy this guide. Zombies on Film is a big win for me, and I recommend any movie-lover or zombie-fan to snatch this one up immediately. The book will also make an excellent Christmas gift for the living-dead-lover in your life. It is available now, so make a note." -Shattered Ravings "Zombies on Film: The Definitive Story of Undead Cinema takes readers on an illustrative journey through all nine decades of undead cinema. It chronicles popular culture's most terrifyingly enduring and endearing monsters in the medium in which their shuffling, rotting, flesh-eating characteristics were created and shaped -- at the movies!" -Extra TV "Both book and blurb are gravely entertaining takes on a genre that refuses to stay buried." -Variety Magazine
