Storyline

Zombies: are they real? Every culture creates its own version of a zombie. There have been diseases in history that have mimicked behavior of a zombie virus. The plausibility is there. You would never be up against one zombie.you would be up against thousands or millions of zombies. How would you survive? There would have to be total destruction of the zombie spine. Death is mans ultimate fear. There is something more frightening when the dead come back to life and become our worst nightmare. Jonathan Mayberry (Author of Rot and Ruin and Dead of Night) says they are like insectsyou are surrounded on all sides. You cant outrun them, you cant kill them. Max Brooks (Author of World War Z) says that zombies come after the whole human race. Modern zombies come from a film made in 1968 by a as then unknown director George Romero (Night of the Living Dead). George Romero rewrote the book about zombies says Max Brooks. What started as a low budget horror movie became an international ...

Zombies eat to destroy life.

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.
