ZOMBIES ON FILM chronicles popular culture's greatest and most terrifyingly intriguing monsters in the very medium their shuffling, rotting, flesh-eating characteristics were shaped--at the movies! Spanning nearly a century, 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 tells the remarkable true story behind the creative and independent-spirit that shaped a legacy, from its cinematic inception and evolution to its ultimate rise to pop culture prominence, covering the most popular, most influential, most overlooked--and of course, the most gory and terrifying--films featuring zombies. Author Ozzy Inguanzo's insightful, witty, and informative text is complemented by more than 300 photographs, movie posters, and behind-the-scenes images spanning nine decades of classic films including Bela Lugosi's White Zombie (1932), George Romero's landmark Night of the Living Dead (1968), and Lucio Fulci's cult classic Zombie (1979), as well as offerings from blockbuster directors such as Peter Jackson's Dead Alive (1990), Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead (2004), and more recent entries like the breakthrough series The Walking Dead (2010) and the international sensation World War Z (2013). Expertly curated and filled with images spanning the breadth of cinematic history, ZOMBIES ON FILM is ideal for film fans, students, and pop culture junkies.

Night of the Zombie Chickens is supposed to be Kate Walden's breakout film. But her supporting actresses—her mother's prize organic hens—are high maintenance, to say the least. Thank goodness Kate's best friend Alyssa is the star. She's great at screaming and even better at killing zombies in creative ways. But when Alyssa turns into a real-life soulless zombie and ditches Kate for the most popular girl in seventh grade, Kate suddenly finds herself both friendless and starless. Now, thanks to Alyssa's new crowd, Kate is the butt of every joke at school and consigned to the loser table at lunch. If movies have taught Kate anything, it's that the good guy can always win—with the right script. And her fellow social outcasts may be the key to her own happy ending. Kate hatches the perfect revenge plot against her former best friend, but even though her screenplay is foolproof, Kate soon realizes that nothing—in filmmaking or in life—ever goes exactly as planned. Especially when there are diabolical hens out to get you.

Don't turn around - there's probably one behind you right now. Vampires and zombies are just everywhere. Bram Stoker had no idea what he was starting when he published his vampire novel Dracula in 1897, incidentally digging up and re-animating the word ''undead. Whether it's Twilight, Let the Right One In, True Blood, or the comic book series Thirty Days of Night, vampire stories seem to experience an eternal cycle of death and resurrection, growing more potent, if not more rosy-cheeked, with each successive manifestation. While vampires are suave, sexy, sophisticated, stay up all night, generally have good hair, and often deliver witty one-liners, zombies are just the opposite. Zombies have poor complexions, missing body parts, few social graces, and are conversationally challenged. Yet public fascination with zombies keeps proliferating, along with the popularity of vampires. There are more zombie books, zombie movies, and zombie games than ever before. About the only things vampires and zombies share is that they want to bite us and we are at risk of becoming like them. However, they both confront us with moral and metaphysical issues of life and death. In Zombies, Vampires, and Philosophy, an expanded edition of The Undead and Philosophy, twenty-two of our leading thinkers teach us the lessons we can absorb from the various forms of Undeath. ''This is a book worth buying just for the final chapter, which gives us the sensational and hitherto suppressed correspondence of tienne Lavec and Paulie Dori Williams. At long last we have a vital perspective that has been sadly lacking; authentic vampire reactions to the way vampires are depicted in popular culture.
