10 Best & 10 Worst Zombie Movies

5 October 2011 7:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Monsters are a dime a dozen and have been throughout history. There’s the Vampire; the Werewolf; the Centaur; the Fish Man; the Fly Man; the Ghost and the Goblin. And it doesn’t end there, the list goes on and on into the shadows but it only needs to be observed to realise that we love a good miscreation more than we possibly should.

But let’s examine the word itself – Monster. It’s derived from the Latin word monstrare which is ‘to show, point out or reveal’ (also intrinsic in the etymology of the word ‘demonstrate’). In order to truly terrify, a monster must reveal to us something in ourselves – something we may not necessarily want to acknowledge. This is why the Zombie endures even as other monsters are committed to history – our survival instinct forces us to fear our mortality and so most of us refuse to truly recognize it. »

 To comment on the film classic White Zombie is a task that daunts me. This minor classic, with its wealth of haunting imagery, has been commented on, criticized and analyzed by so many people, that I wonder what I can add.  Not that I haven’t thought about the film. Stills from it ran in Famous Monsters of Filmland, the magazine that taught me respect for old horror films; those stills fed my imagination in those pre-cable, pre-home video days. As a kid, I was forever making my own mental movies out of photos seen in FM. White Zombie was no exception, but unlike other old horror films I wondered about and dreamed of, White Zombie did not disappoint my older self when I finally got to see it.  I first saw White Zombie in my twenties. My best friend and I were celebrating Halloween, and part of that celebration »
