About The Zombie Archive

The Zombie Archive grew out of a love for the zombie: its centrality in our cultural imagination, as a source of anxiety and fascination, and the filmic, literary, and artistic representations it engenders. This site will be a comprehensive source for lovers of the zombie as well as zombie scholars to find all literature, film, art, cultural events, and scholarly sources surrounding the zombie in all its manifestations.
