Zombie Genre Show Notes:
  • Shannon's Definition of Zombie Film: zombie films are films where zombie play a vital role in the film which is centred on human vs zombie conflict or interaction. Zombies in this context are defined as humans that have dead and then been reanimated into brainless existence.
  • Wikipedia description of zombies: Zombies are creatures usually portrayed as either a reanimated corpse or a mindless human being. While zombie films generally fall into the horror genre, some cross over into other genres, such as comedy, science fiction, thriller, or romance, even animated films. There have even been developments in zombie-specific sub-genres, such as the "zombie comedy" or the "zombie apocalypse".
  • Wikipedia List of Zombie Films
  • Shannon's Archive of reviewed Zombie Films
  • Shannon's recommended zombie films: Night of the Living Dead (original), Pontypool, Grace, [REC], 28 Days Later, Zombie Girl: The Movie and Mulberry Street
  • Shannon's not quite zombie film but still recommended as a close fit: The Last Man on Earth
