In the second installment of our Super Special Spooky Season Series on Iconic Halloween Creatures, we sit down to discuss all things Zombies. This week’s eerie epic follows a young journalist through a harrowing encounter with the source of a zombie infection. We then discuss the origins of zombies in Afro-Caribbean culture, the blending of those roots into American folklore, and the writers and directors that made zombies a modern horror mainstay. We finish up by discussing our top five zombie movies and even talk a bit of video games. So, fashion yourself a makeshift zombie-killer, double check your stock of MREs, and throw some chains on the wheels of your fluorescent green van because we’re diving headfirst into the Zombie Apocalypse!
