A Very Brief History of Zombies in Film:

In 1929 popular culture was first introduced to the idea of “zombies” with William Seabrook’s book, “The Magic Island”. In the book he describes Haitian Vodoo practices and his experience with the Culte des Morts, or Cult of the Dead. Seabrook’s book was later used as the basis for Garnett Weston’s 1932 screenplay “White Zombie”. Directed by the Halperin brothers and starring the legendary Bela Lugosi, “White Zombie” tells the story of a young girl transformed by a Vodoo master into a mindless zombie slave.

“White Zombie” gave us the first full length film example of zombies, though not as we know them today...

What is your latest zombie release?

Kingdoms of the Dead (Chemical Rot)

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

Kingdom of the Dead: The zombie apocalypse like you’ve never seen it before. The plague destroyed nine-tenths of the population, and the dead refuse to rot. The survivors learn that each and every one of them carries a death sentence: the virus circulating in their very bloodstreams. Just how far will one scientist go – how many people’s lives will he destroy in his quest to save the human race? The fates of several worlds hang in the balance.

Something unique about it.

I’ve taken the zombie genre into parallel worlds, that’s unique.

Links for people to purchase it.

Interview With A Walking Dead Walker

Interview With A Walker

One of the largest “roles” on The Walking Dead is that of the zombie, the walker, the undead. Hundreds of extras are used every Season to make The Walking Dead what it is. Many times they are just off in the background, a menacing presence; other times they are right up in your face in all their grotesque glory. So, I got the idea to do a series of “Walker” Interviews in hopes of bringing more appreciation and recognition to these awesome hard-working actors. After all, there would be no Walking Dead without the walking dead.
