A History Of Zombies

One of the questions I get asked about zombies the most is 'where do they come from?'. The answer really depends on which type of zombie you're referring to. If it's the classic horror zombie it's probably either the result of magic gone amok or a mad science experiment. If, on the other hand, you're talking about the modern day horror zombie, it's more than likely some kind of virus or disease. The usual answer I give is that the entire zombie genre was originally based on Afro-Caribbean folklore and the rumors circulating the voodo religion.
