As portrayed in the classic 1968 film “Night of the Living Dead,” zombies are lumbering, flesh-eating corpses. Some say this film reinvented zombies.
Zombies are even mentioned in Haitian folklore, with the Haitian word “zombi” meaning “spirit of the dead.” These tales showed voodoo priests who had the ability to resurrect the deceased through the administration of a magic powder. And in step with legend, “In Haiti a zombi is somebody who has annoyed his or her circle of relatives and community to the degree that they are able to no longer stand to live with this person.”
Even the Centers for Disease Keep watch over and Prevention (CDC) has jumped on the zombie bandwagon, with a post on their site in May 2011 entitled “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse.” The post, a tongue-in-check way to promote real disaster preparedness, went viral that week.
The recipe for a brand new-day zombie is a healthy dose of folklore, a dash of science, and a heavy sprinkling of entertainment value. Probably the most terrifying entities on the earth of fiction, what we today call “The Walking Dead” has origins in folklore from several different cultures – dating back to Mesopotamia and even the Bible.
