"We're All Mad Here…."
George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead 1968 is the first modern zombie film, and without it, the zombie craze as we know it today would not exist. Prior to 1968, zombies featured in movies where corpses were typically reanimated through witchcraft — voodoo style witchcraft in particular. George Romero introduced a new zombie which was created by an unknown phenomenon thought to be biological in origin — possibly a virus or an alien infection. The exact cause of zombie infection has morphed over time, and more than forty years later is still debated among zombie fans who love to disagree on what constitutes a “true zombie.”
