Vintage Zombie Movies Come Back From the Dead in ‘Zombies on Film’

The “zombie” is one of our most evocative monsters, one that reflects the fears we have in today’s world: apocalypse and disease. When we make art with zombies, we’re looking those fears right in the face and figuring out whether humanity can survive under impossible odds. In the beautiful new coffee-table book Zombies on Film: The Definitive Story of Undead Cinema, author Ozzy Inguano examines how zombies have evolved onscreen, from I Walked With a Zombie to Shaun of the Dead. The tome features rare vintage photos and illustrations from all corners of movie zombie culture, and we have a sample of our favorite stills and posters to share. Click through to check them out!
