plague of the zombies
With zombies returning to screens, a new video essay looks at their origins in popular culture.


Few horror sub-genres seem as played out at this point as the zombie genre, but with the likes of The Dead Don't Die, Zombieland 2 and Little Monsters, the shambling undead seem to be undergoing a screen revival.
