Zombies and film go together like peanut butter and jam. They are a mainstay of the horror movie genre.
The first modern zombie movie, Night of the living Dead, was created independently in 1968 by George Romero. The film is considered a classic and spawned a number of other splatter-flicks including Hell of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead.
Romero’s version of the zombie-monster has inspired numerous film-makers in recent times to create such movies as 28 Days Later, a post-apocalyptic gore-fest starring Cillian Murphy, Christopher Eccelston, and Naomi Harris.
