Zombies eat to destroy life.
22 March 2012 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

America is fascinated with Zombies. The came on the scene here in 1968 with George Romero's Night of The Living Dead.

This documentary tries to give us some of the ancient history of zombies in Norse mythology and other sources. They also talk about the culture of death, and how different civilizations handled the death; and how they made sure they didn't come back.

Why would people put rocks in the mouth of the dead? Why would the Greeks mutilate corpses to make sure they couldn't return. Why would corpses be bound and locked in coffins? Apparently, many cultures had a fear of the dead returning. Today, we even bolt coffins shut.

Naturally, the story delves into cannibalism, and also plagues in history.

Lots of zombies moving around made this a fascinating trip.
