Book Review: ZOMBIE MOVIES: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE by Glenn Kay
For all you fans of Zombie movies out there like myself, this book is a must have. ZOMBIE MOVIES: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE is by Glenn Kay and published in 2008 by Chicago Review Press. The book starts with forward from a true "Master Of Horror", Stuart Gordon (director of such classic horror films as DOLLS, CASTLE FREAK, FROM BEYOND and, of course, the classic RE-ANIMATOR among others). The book then goes on to review and rate nearly 300 Zombie films, arranged in alphabetical order in decade. The book includes tons of photos and while most are black and white, it does contain a 16 page midsection of color photos including rare photos and pics of great Zombie movie posters. The book covers not only mainstream American Zombie films, but list lots of obscure foreign and independent Zombie films from all over the world! The last chapter is the author's list of the 25 greatest Zombie films (in his opinion), and while most of these lists always have George Romero's original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD as the #1 Zombie film, Glenn Kay puts it as #2! So what is his #1 Zombie film of all time? Buy the book and find out!! You will be glad you did!
