Book Review: BOOK OF THE DEAD: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF ZOMBIE CINEMA by Jamie Russell

BOOK OF THE DEAD is one of the better books on the subject of Zombie films. The book is written by Jamie Russel and is a comprehensive guide to all the zombie films, from the birth of the voodoo zombie films, to the "rebirth" of zombie films of late. This book is a nice sized 320 pages of anything and everything you would want to know about almost any zombie film ever made. The book includes chapters on the popular Italian zombie films, the films of George Romero, and a very handy Zombie Filmography. The book has tons of rare photos and movie stills, both color and black and white. This is a must have for any zombie fan, or really any Horror fan in general.

CLICK HERE to buy the book from Amazon.com, or ask for it at your local bookstore!

  2. I've had this book for awhile and it's a great reference guide. I actually used it a great deal for a paper I wrote in grad school dealing with the voodoo zombie. I passed it around as a visual aide in my presentation. I don't think my peers were too impressed. Oh well... :)
