For nearly a century, big-screen tales of zombies have fascinated viewers, shambling their way from horror films to action thrillers and comedies. In recent years, there have even been news reports of real zombie-like behavior. But few know the truth behind Haitian folklore's biggest contribution to global imagination. These pages get to the bottom of the origins of the zombie legend and its changes and development over time. the possible sources of "zombification," including tropical drugs and poisons, are examined, and real stories of zombies are debunked. Real or not, zombies have invaded pop culture and there's no escape.
