The Zombie Chronicles: Part One

Don't worry. They're still out there.

Don’t worry. They’re still out there.

Over at Alex on Film I’ve just completed the first round of a survey of zombie movies, from the beginnings up through the 1980s. And by “zombie movies” I mean movies that don’t necessarily involve the living dead but which in some ways fit what has become, at least since Romero, a certain mythic structure. Here’s the list of reviews (and if you’re interested in related book reviews, see my notes on Glenn Kay’s Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide and Corey Redekop’s Husk). You can see Part Two of the Zombie Chronicles here.
