"Zombiemania" is a fun but superficial documentary about the zombie genre. Perhaps I expect too much of these documentaries, given that I've read numerous books on horror movies, but this documentary was basically a paean to George Romero. I would have liked a deeper review of the history of zombies in folklore and history, and a greater examination of zombies in pre-"Night of the Living Dead" films. But the greatest omission was any discussion--heck, any reference--of Italian zombie movies in the 1970s and 1980s. Not every zombie convention came from the mind of George Romero. Still, if you like zombie movies you'll probably enjoy "Zombiemania."
