Greetings Earthling(s). Hope all is well on your Thursday. Keep calm. We're almost to the weekend. Today I wanted to discuss a brief history of zombies. This takes shape in a few different ways.
First we have to look at the Haitian folklore that introduced the idea of Zombies to the masses, as well as the book that brought those ideas to western society. Then we have to look briefly at how this information was included in films and how it changed. I'll admit, the research I did was not nearly as deep as it should have been. I want to read books on the voodoo zombie as well as read critical analysis of early zombie films in order to get a better understanding of all the themes that I'm missing. But for a short 4 minute video, I didn't read a bunch of books.
If you notice any inaccuracies in my video, please let me know.
